Thread: Camera Travel backpack recommendation?

    Default Camera Travel backpack recommendation?

    Dear Snappers,

    Any recommendation for any Camera back pack for 2 D3 & a couple of heavy lenses especially good for traveller?

    Currently my camera bag is a sling one which is so tiring even when i travel with one camera and 3 lenses moreover with my tripod.

    i'm quite like the National Geographic one which i loan from, i like the Canvas beige design but the thing is the space still seems to be a little constraint.

    Could any kind souls kindly recommend any good shops with variety of good bags?



    Thanks!!

    Think Tank Shapeshifter.

    I use that when travelling.
    Packed it with 2 body, 4 lenses, 1 flash, 1 Macbook, and a lot of accessories inside.

    I also have the Lowepro Nature Trekker, but I find the padding too thick, and have trouble slotting it into some aircraft overhead compartments.

    Thanks!!
    Go Cathay Photo, Orient Photo as well as The Camera Workshop to try out those recommended. These 3 places probably has the largest camera bags collection.

    Can go to TK Photo at Beach Road. They have thinktank, lowepro, crumpler etc. I think they stock most of the camera bag brands. Price is cheaper than Cathay for Lowepro

    Dear Bros,

    Thanks for your kind advises! Really appreciated!

    I have read reviews on Lowe & Think Tank.

    Think Tank shape shifter seems to be quite ideal as it is expandable & not so bulky.
    Lowe Photo trekker and Nature Trekker is great too in the sense of storage space & how protective to your gear it is, but the only con i see is that its quite bulky even you have remove all your gears.

    I have check with TK foto on "Shape Shifter", its pricing at $349.00. Any body knows who else selling Think tank products?

    Thanks
