 Post subject: Using bags and camera
PostPosted: Tue May 27, 2008 6:48 pm 
The current bag I have will only hold my camera with one attatched lense but im thinking of getting a bigger bag to accomadate lenses.

One thing I have on my mind is that when im out and about with my camera I keep the camera out of the bag over my sholder on the strap (easier to get to and use than having to pull it out of a bag all the time) and would only need a bag to hold lense's. Is there any point in buying a bag which will hold everything when i wont need to hold the camera, but only the lense's?

How do you guys use/hold your camera and bag when your out and about?
When your out and about do you even bother bringing a bag? I quite often just leave my camera bag in the car and just carry the camera with me.

*another point, what do you guys do when you need to carry a camera, lense's and a laptop? do you have one bag for everything or one for the laptop and one for teh camera equipment?

It depends. When photographing special events like sports, something in the family, I hang it around my neck...
But walking around here (3-4 hours min.) I use a rucksack. It´s not one particular for photostuff, more comfortable for anyone who likes walking around like me. So I have to be careful how to pack my gear in it. I need to protect it extra because some scratches may be the result.
So when unpacking my stuff "at the site of crime" I need some extra time, which I use for figuring out if the scene/object is worth to photograph a second time....

Well that would depend largely on your style of shooting I suppose. When I go out with my camera I sometimes don't shoot anything for minutes on end so keeping it in the bag is easier and more convenient. I also consider my bag a form protection from the elements. It is for these two reasons that I would factor in the ability to carry a camera in every cam bag purchase I make.

There are people who look for the same thing as you though and this is why companies like Lowepro sell harnesses that hold lenses and accessories only.

For me, if I go any further than my house, my bag goes with me.
