    Hi Andy. Thanks for this. I had been thinking about a waist pack as a potential solution to carrying a landscape kit around by comparison to a backpack & the Lowepro Inverse 100 looks to be a good option. I was also looking at the ClikElite version of a waist pack & will have to compare their relative capacities & features. I also use an XT1 & soon to be XT2, with similar lenses. One question, do you know if the Inverse 100 will take a Fuji 50-140mm in the vertical position?
    Another external trigger option that may help you with using the XT1 in portrait orientation together with a RRS L-bracket (if you will be retaining your XT1 as a second camera once you have an XT2) is a Phottix Aion trigger with the Canon 2.5mm right angled plug. This goes in the microphone port & can trigger the shutter, with manual or user set times. It also has a full range of intervalometer & programmed start/stop options & can be used as a cabled or remote release but it seems that not all the functions will work on the XT1. However, it certainly works as a shutter trigger at least. There is just enough room for the installed right angled plug to fit between the camera body, accessory door & the base of the RRS lever clamp, with the cable threaded out between the gap between the top of the L bracket & camera body. It is snug, but doable. The camera axis is slightly off from the centre of the lever clamp but still good enough for vertical panos. I have also been using the Gitzo Series 1 Traveller tripod for about 8 years in some pretty rough conditions, married with a RRS mid size ball head & they just keep on working a treat.
    Thanks again,

      Hi Brendan. I don’t have a 50-140mm, but I checked the Fuji website for the dimensions, and apparently it’s 176mm long. That’s exactly the same as a Sigg water bottle without the lid, so I tried that in the bag to see how well it fits. It fits comfortably in the middle section, but I highly doubt it would fit while attached to a body like the X-T1/2. It also fits in the other compartments (which are a little lower due to the curvature of the bag), although it’s pretty tight. This would also mean that you’d have to have the camera and lens you’ve got in the main section would have to be inserted “perpendicular” to the bag (if you look at the image looking down into the bag, you can see that the camera goes slightly across the compartments to the side, so you’d need to turn it round 90º). I regularly do this with the camera and it fits easily, so it’s not a problem.
      As for your advice on a remote trigger…thanks, that’s a good idea. In future though when the X-T1 is just a second camera I’ll be fine just using the camera remote app on my phone as a trigger for situations when it’s in portrait format in the tripod. It’s not ideal, but realistically I don’t think there’ll be many occasions when it’s necessary so there’s no need to invest in extra kit.
      Thanks for the comment, all the best
      Andy

        Thanks, Andy. That is really nice of you to go to the trouble to check the dimensions, etc. At least I know that it will fit, even if not attached.
        No worries re the trigger. Always good to have options & the wifi remote is a good one & will save on buying & carrying more gear, especially when you are trying to minimise the amount of kit that you are carrying ?
        Thanks again & all the best.
