Thread: How do you store your camera bags?

  1. #1

    Default How do you store your camera bags?

    Needless to say, cameras go into the drybox but where do your camera bags go?

    I don't really put them in storage, just use a 3M hook and hang them up when not in use.

    How does everyone else store their bags? especially people with 3 or more bags.

    I just leave whatever silica gel that came with the bag in the bag.

    I used to do that too, until I couldn't stand it.

    If you have the wall space, then I suggest you do it like this.
    Look for the 3m hook that can hold 3kg, of course, your equipment must be out of the bag before you hang it up. The hook costs $4.75. Can be found at DIY shops. I buy mine at Homefix but Carrefour might have it at a cheaper price but this particular model rarer to find, so may not be in stock at Carrefour.

    Put them in plastic bags to keep away dust, then on top of my cabinets. No space on the floor for camera bags

    sadly, the tops of my cabinets are full of my toys

    the plastic bag is an idea but most of the time I just beat the dust off when I want to use my bags

    I just chuck my bag one corner. Maybe once or twice a year, I will vacuum the insides. That's about it, lah.

    Show me a photographer with 1 bag and I'll show you who just ran out of money buying his equipment

    I can almost say for certain that any photographer has more than one bag.
    For people living in a HDB flat, you are either living your family and have only your room to store stuff (like me) or you have a wife and I don't see many wives telling their hubby its ok to leave their bags lying around

    I used to leave my bags on the floor but that meant that I sometimes couldn't open my cupboard doors. kinda troublesome to keep moving them from different parts of the floor to get to stuff.

    so any more ideas on how to store bags with limited space?

    all my 8 bags can function as normal bag and photo bags hence i dont have to buy photo bags

    all my bags are piled up in one corner of the room. the volume taken up is roughly 60cmx60cm base area and height 40cm. that is very little space

    all my room furniture (table, chair, mattress, )are collapsible, foldable and movable by 1 person to make extra space and /or re-arrange easily when needed. i store all my personal posessions in translucent tubs hence no bulky cupboards.

    you should re-design your room to make it have more effective space

    wish I could do that, but I have just way too many things and if I were to put them into tubs, I would have to move tubs for 10 mins to get to the bottom tub

    my current room design is already better than my previous one but I'm still on a never ending quest to find more space.

    Ok, that gives an idea, maybe we should ask our wife, girlfriend, sister, daughter, mother, etc, where do they keep their handbags when not using? IE They can always put the bag away when not using, and easily bring it out quickly when need to use...

    I asked.
    Girl's bags are smaller so can store in the wardrobe. Some also can fold so, they can stuff more into it then we can.
    I can't imagine stuffing my backpack into my wardrobe. Then again, her wardrobe is bigger than mine

    I currently store 3 of my camera bags in the wardrobe and 1 just on the floor. I wish I could fit all 4 in my wardrobe. However, it looks like I will have to buy a plastic container soon and store my camera bags above the wardrobe, because I need the space inside the wardrobe for other things.
