Investing in a Camera Bag


When purchasing a camera bag, what should I specifically look for?

Start by asking yourself three important questions—what type of photographer are you, where will you be carrying the bag to and how much gear would you be carrying with you.

Importantly, you need to ensure that the bag has a weather cover to protect your gear. Another feature to look for is how easy it is for you to access your equipment. For instance, if you are a street photographer, you may find yourself constantly changing lenses or in the need of memory cards.

You also need to make sure that it is not easy for someone else to have access to your bag. Additionally, the bag should have an adequate number of compartments. Also, you need to choose a bag that is comfortable for you. The shoulder and neck straps need to be padded. Lastly, it would be a good idea to select a bag that does not look like a camera bag or look conspicuous.
