While almost everybody has a camera on their smart phone on device there is still a steady market for high end specialist cameras, especially for professional photographers. And those who still use specialist cameras will use a dedicated bag to hold all their equipment. The right camera bag is a good investment. A few professionals have a few camera equipment bags for different projects.
Make an inventory of all your equipment before you buy a camera bag, so you will have roo for everything you need.
• The most common camera bags are the type that simply sling over the shoulder. These should be light yet still offer protection for the equipment.
You should be able to use you camera while having you bag in easy reach over your shoulder.
• Frequent fliers will need a hard case to protect their camera for aircraft journeys. This should have a TSA lock.
• Outdoor and nature photography will benefit from camera gear held in a backpack. This leaves hands free for climbing paths when the camera is not in use.
• A bag for a video camera is larger and offers protection for the main device. But it will not need much in the way of side compartments, as there are less accessories. Spare batteries are the only real extra.
• Some people don’t want the camera bag to look like it holds anything valuable; they don’t; want to encourage thieves. Rough leather bags can achieve this, while still protecting a moderate amount of equipment.
• Keeping the camera on a belt while carrying extra equipment in a smaller bag is another option.
• Easy access is important. You going to get sick of constantly unlatching a bag to get that alternate lens, and feel annoyed when you miss a photo opportunity.
• At the same time you will probably need a lock on the bag.
• Water proof bag material is also important.
