Camera Bag Recommendations

Wed Oct 20, 2004 11:11 pm

The multitude of bags available is very difficult to sort through.

I've been looking at the Adorama and B&H websites.

Does anyone have any recommendations on a backpack style outfit? Hauling around a regular bag last weekend with only moderate weight still gave my back some fits. I am guessing that a backpack would be better for weight distribution.

Cheers,
Michael

I think the most important thing is, what do you need to carry? And are you looking for fancy (Crumpler) or just plain protection? (Lowepro)

I just bought this one. Its rather large, but, its comfortable and will not have a problem holding my ever expanding collection.

Thanks everyone for the input.

Sorry, I have to admit that I did not do a search for past topics.

I'm looking for a bag to carry 2 bodies and 3-5 lenses. Comfort and functionality being the most important qualities. I will check the recommendations already posted and I welcome any others.

Cheers,
Michael

Crumpler = the ultimate in style but not exactly the most practical either

Lowepro do some good ones buy they look bulky.

I've got a Tamrac Expedition 4 backpack. It suits my current needs perfectly. Plus you can buy addiotional accessories to attach. It proved good on my recent trip.

I would highly recommend a backback! A lot more comfortable to carry around than a normal one IMO!

I think backpacks are nice for travel and when you need to carry the gear for longer periods of time, but when you want to have fast access to the gear a shoulder bag is better.
