Camera bags for every use
Having a great camera bag is essential when trying to keep your camera and accessories securely stored and well organized. A great camera bag is a worth the investment, as it will protect your most valuable equipment. Large manufacturers have the right solution for every photographer, no matter if you’ve got a system camera or a DSLR with interchangeable lenses.
Types of camera bags
Shoulder bags and hip bags are ideal for smaller cameras and are very practical for city trips or relaxing day hikes. Not only are these bags super convenient, but they're also more comfortable than letting your camera hang around your neck. Evoc and Pacsafe have chic, city-suitable models in their range, so you’re guaranteed to find a camera bag that suits your needs.
Practical advantages of camera bags
If you don’t need to bring all of your equipment with you, then a camera backpack might be too much. A durable, nicely padded camera bag offers the same protection and is just as organized. F-Stop Gear and Midshift not only have professional camera backpacks, but also highly reliable, practical camera bags. Their layout can be optimally adapted to meet your needs and to prevent your camera and equipment from moving around.
What to look for in a camera bag
The inside of any good camera bag should be nicely padded and lined with a soft fabric. Hook-and-loop fasteners on the walls of the compartments can be placed to secure your camera and lenses and prevent them from moving around and getting scratched or knocked. Some models have high-quality additional features, such as an integrated rain cover to ensure that dust and sand cannot get into the bag. Additional small compartments for lens brushes, cloths and memory cards make it easier to keep your equipment organized.
An anti-theft feature is also very important when traveling. So, make sure to get a camera bag with enhanced security features to take on city trips. These bags feature a carry strap that is reinforced with a thin stainless steel cable so pickpockets can’t cut through it with a knife.
Padded accessory bag for lenses and equipment
In addition to a camera bag, avid photographers may purchase an additional bag to safely carry their lenses. Lenses can be placed in a padded lens bag to keep them away from any dust. There are even special bags that help keep your monopod or tripod optimally secured whilst travelling.
