Thread: Camera Bag recommendation please

  1. #1

    Default Camera Bag recommendation please

    Hi guys,

    Sorry for asking this here, but I am very new to this.

    I'm looking for a bag for my A300, misc stuffs like filters, batteries, CF card, blower, maybe 2-3 lens. My free sony alpha bag is a bit fugly to bring out, seriously look like tourist.

    Budget is around 100-200. Would prefer bag pack or waist pouch with easy access to DSLR, then can whip out faster. If die die dun have, then will consider sling bag.

    Any models to recommend? No need to be too branded. Saw Nat Geo bags the other day but more than $200.

    I would consider a Think Tank Streetwalker. But ultimately it would be best to go to a shop and touch them yourself. Play around and see which ones you like.

    Just make a trip down to Cathay or TK Foto, there're lots of bags there for you to choose. Difficult to tell you which to buy cos what I like you may not like.

    The think Tank Streetwalker looks good and fits my budget. Just saw the price from TK foto. Does Cathay sell Think Tank?

    Normal bag with inserts
    It is the camera, not the photographer.

    Lowepro Primus Minimus only $150, cheaper than thinktank and fits my criteria.

    But Thinktank streetwalker is $179 but looks nice.

    Tamrac Adventure 9 is my choice as it has a laptop compartment. Excellent for my trips overseas.

    hey guys,
    sorry abit OT here. but when i saw those pictures of the camera bag, the camera is actually placed "len down".

    i am wondering placing the camera in this matter, will cause any problem? cause the weight of the camera is all on the lens.

    ehh....dun think so...the mount of the lens is quite strong...and the bag also got provide support to the body when you placed it lens down..so no worries bah...
