At home I have a dedicated lens bag with different compartments to hold lenses, cameras and a few filters and so on.
But out on a photowalk I usually only take one camera, and perhaps a second lens (if it’s an interchangeable lens camera), so I don’t need anything bulky, or fancy.
My latest camera bag I picked up some months back for 50p in a jumble sale.
It’s a Fat Face messenger bag (in my experience Fat Face gear is pretty well made and lasts well – it’s the staple of my wardrobe) with enough compartments to put a camera and spare lens, water bottle and snack, phone, plus a little zipped pocket for wallet and keys.
Even if I’m using a compact digital, I still prefer to take a bag for the other items, rather than having bulging uncomfortable pockets – which become even more uncomfortable when crouching in various low positions trying to find the best camera angle!
Oh yes, even when not carrying a camera, I’ve been a fan of the man-bag since long before it became fashionable!
My bag is large enough to not look like a full sack of spuds when loaded, but small enough to not be cumbersome, and the wide, soft strap is very comfortable across my chest.
Given it’s already used and the materials are good quality, I anticipate it lasting me many years to come.
How about you? What does your camera bag look like?
