THERE IS NO such thing as the ideal Camera Bags. I once went through two hours inside a B&H attempting to fit all my photograph gear over 20 packs and still left unsatisfied. Everybody’s necessities are excessively extraordinary; what works for me probably won’t work for you.
That doesn’t mean you won’t discover something you like, regardless of whether it’s not awesome. It’ll simply take some time. We camera aficionados here on the WIRED Gear group have tried more than 30 sacks to help trim your hunt down. We’ve pushed our hardware into slings, courier packs, knapsacks, and blocks, we’ve even gone sack free, all in the pursuit of a helpful method to convey everything while at the same time keeping it secured and lightweight. These are our #1 picks.
Second Rugged Camera Sling:
Second’s Rugged Sling is focused on road picture takers with a measured association framework, and climate evidence texture produced using reused sails (in fact it’s reused polyester fiber and film, made by Northsail). There’s an enormous zippered front pocket that makes it simple to get to your stuff, and the “winged” back cushioning configuration makes it overly agreeable on your back. The most amazing aspect is the sharp attractive clasp framework, which functions admirably. It’s likewise significant that I found the 10L rendition ideal for trucking around a robot.
ONA The Bowery:
I’ve claimed this pack (the dark waxed-material variant) for over six years, and it stays fit as a fiddle. It’s alluring and ideal for short trips that length a few hours, with a lot of cushioning and a divider to keep your stuff secured—however, you’ll just have the option to fit a camera with a focal point connected and an extra focal point. There’s a pocket on the back I’ve used to stow a Nintendo Switch or a Kindle, I push my links, batteries, and SD cards in the pocket on the front. The two side pockets are too close to even think about fitting anything greater than a pen or a microfiber material.
Pinnacle Design Everyday Sling 10L:
The Everyday Sling has for quite some time been one of my (Jess) undisputed top choices for regular complete or heading for a day of shooting. It accompanies adaptable dividers you can change or eliminate contingent upon how much association or extra room you need. The 10-liter adaptation has space for a 13-inch MacBook Pro, a charger, and my FujiFilm X-Pro 2 camera. If you need space for extra focal points or a bigger camera body, you should forego the MacBook; it can get somewhat close in there.
Domke F-832 Shoulder Bag:
This is the sack I used to cover the 2014 December walk on Washington, DC. Reasonable admonition: The cushioning at the base isn’t thick, and the included additions are feebly connected through a solitary line of velcro on the sack’s inside. However, I like this pack since it’s so open. A while ago when my photograph pack comprised of my camera and a solitary additional battery, I had the option to throw save garments, a PC, and toiletries into this thing without expecting to contemplate coordinating anything. It additionally helps that the waxed material outside doesn’t quickly shout Camera Bags.
Second MTW Backpack:
Second, ‘s MTW Backpack is an extraordinary minimal ordinary pack. The compartment that houses the camera (and the discretionary MTW Camera Insert) is rapidly open from the side without expecting to take the pack off, however, go for the 21-liter size rather than the 17L on the off chance that you have a ton of stuff. The more modest 17L sack’s back compartment can scarcely fit a 16-inch PC in its cushioned sleeve, and the stretchy side pocket can convey a smaller than normal stand or a thick water bottle. The front-most zippered pocket is incredible for putting away more modest things like chargers, links, and batteries.
It’s not difficult to make sure about the MTW supplement to the pack so it doesn’t move around, yet it makes the whole thing very puffy. On a short outing where I just required my camera and very little other stuff, I took out the addition, pressed two days’ worth of garments, and pushed my camera in my garments for cushioning. The simplicity of eliminating the addition makes it an incredible rucksack and an extraordinary regular Camera Bags. It’s made of reused Kodra texture with a twofold layer waterproof covering.
It’s the nearest a Camera Bags has ever come flawlessly—and arrives in a lovely green and blue! You pick between 21 liters or 31 liters—I settled on the last mentioned. It fits all I require to shoot a video in a hurry, including a stand. With the side-access pocket, getting the camera is a smart issue. There’s a PC sleeve sufficiently large to house a 16-inch MacBook in addition to another spot for a tablet. Simply make a point to purchase the Photography Bundle so you get the Essential Camera Cube packaged in.
The expandable move top has proved to be useful on a few events, offering an extra 5 liters of room. It scarcely looks worn out, as well. The waterproof canvas and Robic 1680-denier ballistic nylon have held up very well.
