Camera bags

How many? What kind?
Do you try and carry everything with you?
I have several and am thinking about buying another one. Still looking for the perfect bag.

I guess my Timbuk2 messenger bag is a bit of a man purse.

I have one that I bought to tide me over until I found "the right one". It sucks. As a standalone bag, I can only bring two lenses in it and it doesn't fit my long zoom very well. It is satisfactory when I use a backpack sternum strap in conjunction with the belt loops on the bag. It limits forward visibliity a bit. But its manageable.

Once upon a time, I thought a LowePro OffTrail 1 would be a good fit for backpacking. I believe it's discontinued now, but they occasionally reappear used. The lowepro inverse cw was one I was also considering.

When backpacking, weight is always a concern and I will usually take a P+S instead of a SLR. But if I can afford "luxury items" (i.e. on a less challenging hike), I want to take the nicer camera. And I'll take only the necessary items.

So I need to find two more...

I use a Lowepro Fastpack 350 (I think that's what it's called) for travelling relatively light, and a Super Trekker for travelling heavy. The Super Trekker takes everything I'm likely to use, including battery chargers, filters and the 300-800mm beast. I still leave a few lenses behind but then I hardly ever use the 50mm f/1.4 or the fisheye these days.

Crumpler 7 million dollar home. I almost put everything I own in it.



Lowepro Orion Trekker. Enough for a day trip plus room to carry snacks, etc. Good when going out with family.



Lowepro Topload Zoom AW. Single zoom plus flash. Good for outdoor activities as it allows one to have the bag attached to the chest (think Baby Bjorn style.)


Like this:



Canon 200 EG. Got it for $20 in Amazon. More useful than I thought.


I still have all these bags and use them depending on the type of outing I have. But the one I use the most is the free Canon gadget bag I got when I subscribed to the "Explorer of Light" magazine 10 years ago.

It is an older version of this:



where I could carry one body + lens attached. One flash and two small primes (or the 70-200 f4L.) Plus battery and accessories.

I have a cheap Quantaray bag which houses my DSLR on the floor (and it hardly ever moves). I also have an old pleather and nylon shoulder bag that my dad bought for his AE-1 back in the early 80s. The only interesting bag I have is this:





No idea how old it is, but I had to have the original zipper replaced, which cost me more than the bag itself. I used it when I needed to take my AE-1P, extra lens, and my Canonet to Seattle for a day. It's a great bag. However, like my other bags I hardly ever use it because I hate lugging around a bag. That's why I usually just carry my X10 or Canonet in my hand or a jacket pocket. It's also the reason those two cameras are the only two I use regularly.

That's my route. I keep my cameras in Pelican cases. I use an Ortlib shoulder bag as my camera bag and transfer what I'm going to use for the day in it.

I guess it is, sorta. It's this one: http://www.ortliebusa.com/prod-216.htm
Back has rack clips so it can be used as a pannier. The points that were important to me are the bottom is squared off so it will stand upright, it's water proof, and I can flipp the lid all the way over so I can have a shoulder mounted bucket I can dump stuff into.
The waterproof and standing up parts make it better (for me) than the Crumpler bags I've used.

A friend just gave me a brand new Canon 200 EG backpack. It fits my two 35mm bodies and two extra lenses with room to spare, and it's not too big. So far, I'm happy with it.

My friend just gave me a Crumpler bag that takes both SLR bodies and six lenses, one being my 100-300 Minolta zoom, as well as my laptop and video gear. It's awesome.

My usual bag is my Lowepro AW200 sling. Fits one body+four lenses+filters although I think it could take two bodies with some reimagining.
