|Not only am I wondering what backpacks people use, but whether or not people use them.|
Between a camera and equipment, I feel a backpack is a must for me. I need a new one however, and looking for suggestions and people's experiences.
|The best backpack doesn't exist! It depends on what you looking for, the budget you put on it. I was looking for a backpack which I can use for books and camera, so I can shoot before or after school. Something that didn't scream camera bag. I have used Evecase, love the design, really cheap, but it didn't fulfill what I want. I also wanted a place where I can attach a tripod and my penny board. Manfrotto, Peak Design, Wandrd, Brevite, these are what came up. But I finally buy the Thule Convert. Really expensive though. It got good quality, good design. Can easily take your camera for a fast shoot. But the bag itself it's super heavy. And pretty big for me, 5,7. I know also a lot of people use Lowepro, really great camera backpack! |
|I really like the camera access on the side, that's a nice bag! I like the look too. I'm looking for something halfway between camera and day/weekend trips.|
I've been looking at the GR1 26L and like the way it opens and it's size, reputation, warranty. It also looks great and that's important for what could also be an EDC. I'm also looking at the Fast Pack Litespeed.
I will have to come up with a solution however for safe storage and easy access to the camera in them though unlike your Thule. Will be looking in to that.
|I have the Lowepro ProTactic 350 AW.|
It was the best thing I could possibly purchase and it still inst what I really want. The only way you're going to be 100% happy with your bag is if you make it yourself. lol
Let's Go Places
|I have two bags that I swap between, one is a small backpack and the other is a dedicated camera bag.|
I'm sorry I don't have the names of either right now, but one is just a cheap backpack from Old Navy, and the other is an over the shoulder camera bag from the 90s.
When I'm doing big photography projects I'll take the camera bag, which can fit a body, ~4 lenses, a flash, remote shutter, and small things like SD cards or batteries.
For first time explorations I'll take the backpack, which holds the classic supplies such as flashlight, first aid kit, gloves, water bottle, small tools etc... As well as a DSLR body and a lens or two.
|I think most people don't use one but I do because some of the places I are long ass up hill walks. I always use one since I broke my camera visiting a ghost town in the N.C mountains. I still need to get a replacement. |
And to think "Chad" isn't even my real name.
