Ok, I know a few months ago there was talks about camera bags... show 'em off. What do you have? Why do you love it?
I need something more professional than what I am currently using!
I don't travel that much but I do have a large backpack style. I forget the name off the top of my head and two shootsacs for when I am at the event. I usually load up the shootsacs and keep my extras in the backpack in the car such as my lighting etc.
I wanted a bag for traveling with an extra lens and one on the body - that is the extent of my photography skills right now. I purchased the Kelly Moore B-Hobo bag in Mustard and love it. We recently traveled to Texas from CT and I wore it as one of my carry on items, was able to use the sling strap for walking around town and it also has a shoulder stap that is great for just using as a purse. It's very easy to switch out the lens since you just have to flip the flap to get inside. There are removable dividers inside so I had a place for the camera, my wallet, sunglasses, etc -lots of great features in a casual looking bag.
Ditto Mel. Except I think yours is super cute, it's not too big or anything and the print is fun but not overwhelming. But I think for weddings, something more neutral would be better. Mine looks like a giant, girly diaper bag... it was not at all what I expected when I ordered it. But I am having another girl here soon, so having a bag that can support both lens AND diaper changes might be handy. ha ha ;)
Tammy, the one you posted looks so cute! I was in seattle the past weekend but didn't bring a camera, and I'm still kicking myself for it. With a baby, DH refused to bring a DSLR and he told me if I wanted it, I could carry it myself. If I had this bag, I could've brought one AND fit baby stuff in it as well! I'm seriously considering getting it for future travels.
I have the Kelly Moore libby bag. It's a great, big all purpose bag - when I shoot, it fits all my gear and when I travel, I can comfortably fit my 5d body, 2 lenses, flash, laptop, wallet, and other bits I need (gum, pasport, makeup, etc). Plus side, it's super versatile. Not so plus side, it gets pretty friggin heavy! But it does have a cross body strap, so that helps.
I use my grey poppy cindy tote from 31 with an additional cross body strap. I like it because it's big enough, cute, comfortable, and has a zipper. I also bought a custom camera insert from etsy (here's the seller link: Darby - SeasonsTotes). I really like it! My insert is black and has 6 inner slots and three outer pockets, and then fits the dimensions of my bag. Plenty big enough to hold my camera body, lenses, and everything else I may need.
It's this bag (but no personalization):
I have a bag collection. I get sent bags all the time to try out or test. Just got to give requests to the Think Tank team. My #1 complaint of most well-designed pro bags is the color of the interior. Who's brilliant idea was it to make the inside BLACK or dark gray for black equipment??? ;o) Kata bags are amazing bright yellow inside. Love that!
I have a large rolling locker by Tamrac (655 I think) for weddings.
I have a rolling backpack (large) by Tenba I use for destination shoots, bridals, engagements. If I were to actually get a destination wedding that is NOT wiped out by a hurricane (happened twice), I would buy a second one for my second shooter. We do not check equipment.
My Shootsacs are beloved.
Just got a Kata bag for my off camera lighting. Like I said above, love the yellow interior.
I have a Jill E. bag Medium (used once for a flight - not big enough for me). Selling that one.
I have a Boda Bag V1 (too bulky to wear for my taste).
I have a Kelly Moore Posey. Used in NYC this summer but just not quite as big as I expected. Wanted just a few more inches. Like a Shootsac but with that shoulder bag feel. Might get a hobo for the fun of it.
I LOVE my red retro bag from Cheeky Lime. (Can't show it off from here- boo)
Their bags are awesome and affordable!
Gotta love Picnik! Saves a ton of pics so you can get to them when other sites are blocked! http://cheekylime.com/
cheekylime bags are cute! It's got a geeky quirky look that's very diffferent from polished Kelly Moore. Hmm, I might get it instead. It matches my Converse lol!
Don't laugh....I'm currently using a JJ Cole Messenger style Diaper bag. The whole thing is padded and the bottle holders pockets inside are the perfect fit for lenses. Its sleek and easy to carry. =)
