TTT: How to transport your DSLR

January 20, 2009 at 4:58 pm 3 comments

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.

    You know, I couldn’t figure out why you were carrying two bags. Totally makes sense now. Totally.
