Help: What Bag Goes Well with your Camera?

By | May 8, 2012

This question is for my friends or followers who carry both a DSLR and a bag at the same time. How do you do it?

You should have seen me in the latest expo I’ve been to, with the clutch, iphone, and my camera. I wanted to take a picture, the iPhone tedarba7 o went to fall in the middle of the floor and in the way of passers by. You’d think someone would help pick it up but they pointed and laughed, don’t know what’s so funny except maybe I looked ridiculous trying to balance a clutch, DSLR, and iPhone all at once and failing to do so miserably.

Or when I want to buy something, then I have no where to put my stuff while I pulled out my purse. I am sure you are familiar with what I mean. Lately I’ve decided to use my DSLR camera as my bag and I’d stuff my car keys, purse, and iPhone inside but again it won’t close o 7ala kaseefa y3ni!

I tried a big bag, my favorite Balenciaga, it would even swallow my DSLR whole. But then it got too heavy and the beautiful chocolate brown bag turned into something resembling a garbage bag with in a brown hue. 7safa 3la my bag intalfat. Now I cannot wear it anymore.

What do I do? What do you do? Sometimes you cannot go out without a bag! Sometimes you have to attend an event alone with no one to hold your bag for you while you point and shoot and mingle and eat and try to balance everything at once and you I am not the most naturally graceful person on earth. I’m getting tired, I wish I was a guy with pockets where I could keep all I need in them when I go out. Oh well.

So help please. Do you have any idea or tips on the kind of bag you can take out that is the perfect companion to a blogger/photographer that doesn’t look like something a professional photographer would lug around? Or any tips regarding juggling everything during events or coverages?

  1. I personally own 3-4 camera bags, it all depends on the purpose that you take your DSLR camera with you, for example, I tend to carry 3-4 lenses when I’m going out and planning on shooting, so I take my backpack, but if you’re looking for something on the go, try getting a shoulder bag, I’ve got 2 shoulder bags, one that fits 3 lenses and a flash, and the other one that fits 1 lens only. I would recommend ThinkTank bags since I believe that they make the best camera bags out there.

    i know exactly what you mean its hard to go without a bag and if you use your large bags it will not work so what i usually do is wear a cross bag and hang my camera on my shoulder which i hate btw because it ruins the outfit luckily i have found that there are some stylish bags out there for this kind of dilemma I wanted to order this one in the link but not sure yet

    Regardless of all of that it will still be a dilemma, I carry the camera in its own bag and my bag and when I’m swinging around taking pictures I feel one bag slipping or the other. It’s just insane hence why I am going back to smaller point-and-shoots or trying to find that ideal camera pouch that will fit in my purse 😛
