TTT: How to transport your DSLR
If you have a DSLR, this Travel Tip Tuesday post is for you. I am the proud owner of two DSLR bags that we actually used. I “need” two because they serve different purposes. We first tried the traditional shoulder bag, like this one. But those are ugly and uncomfortable. For our last trip to Europe, I decided we should get a camera backpack.
We got a Lowepro that splits in the middle. The camera and lenses are in the bottom portion of the bag, and then I can stash a wrap and snacks in the top half. This was a very nice choice for us. We only have one extra lens, so we don’t need the rest of the backpack for camera stuff.
We just recently picked up a second bag, the tote pictured above. This is a good bag to carry our camera and extra lens when we don’t want to be seen with a backpack. I used the tote to carry to Ami and Scott’s vow renewal. No woman should be wearing a backpack with a formal dress! lol
There is a third option I really like that would work to carry your gear for any occasion – the ShootSac by Jessica Claire. I’d looove to get one of these. The only reason I haven’t is because the ShootSac itself is $179, and the covers are $49 and up. Ack! I want so many other camera-related items that this one is unlikely to happen anytime soon unless she runs a serious sale. And it doesn’t really seem to be for holding your camera – just your lenses. Still way cool.
