Thread: Barang Barang: The Travel Photographer's Bag

    Default Re: Barang Barang: The Travel Photographer's Bag

    Anyone uses sling bag for camera, together with a backpack for personal barang barang during travel? I am tempted to try this the next time I travel, but heck two bags sounds troublesome.

    Quite a problem actually. I seriously dislike camera backpack because having to take it off to access my stuff simply slows everyone down and attracts attention. Trying to take stuff out while not to put it down, risk dropping lens. Sling bag only, no space for barang barang. And during trips I can have lotsa nonsense to bring around! Brochures, guide book, rain gear, snow gear, water bottle, more brochures, books, food rations, souvenirs, ...

    I bring my slingshot and my offtrail for shooting. My luggage keeps the other stuffs and is the only thing i check in.
    The rest will always be with me when I walk about or traveling on the plane.

    My water and guide books all in the slingshot!

    For my travel, I used a Kata R-103 to bring everything (including laptop), then once I arrive, transfer (except laptop) into my 7 Million Dollar Home and use that in my walk-around for shooting. But the 7mdh hurt my shoulder and back after a while, so I sold it after about a year. It was a great bag though, it could hold everything (until I couldn't). Now also looking for a good travel-bag, but not for carrying so much... maybe 1 SLR + GRIP and 2 lenses and other assorted stuff.

    Actually, i kinda feel my left foot is giving me pain when i cross sling the bag to the right. Somemore, i am very fat and heavy. And haha, i do walkabout in my worn out slippers.

    But, i cannot stand the heat from the backpack leh. Too hot and heavy though it is more balance.

    Ya, i got idea. Sell me your SR. Wahahaha. 10 bucks, deal immediately!

    I have had no luck at all finding a camera bag like this, so I generally resort to having a couple of individual bags/lens cases to put my gear in and then stack them in my pack...If, however, there were an actual camera bag like this then that would be awesome! Anyone got one?
    You can try Kata R103.

    Your location and gear is so accurate, people can know where you live and what gear to find there! hoho
    I agree, the R103 is very comfortable, can hold a lot and not feel it too badly!

    I just want to be different....

    I got myself a Deuter messager bag and DIY the pads so that I can use the sling bag when in Singapore.

    I just gotten myself a National Geographic NG5162 medium backpack... aiming it for few months already liao.. finally decided to get it due to GSS.. Will be using it in Perth, San Francisco and Atlanta over the next 3 months.....Just prefer the cotton materials as synthetic ones give problem if dont use for sometime.... in addition, buying the bag helps some fundings for NG works.

    I believe the proper term is Load Bearing Vest. It would work fine in this configuration, but would draw odd stares from the wrong people! (The ones in blue sporting guns.)

    I'm thinking of a domke F-2 or J-2 myself. It's handy and holds all my stuff nicely.
