Greetings to all,
I'm posting this question to ask for advice: Usually carrying your gear in a shoulder bag is preferred cos when shooting we can easily access our gear or change lens. But what if you're travelling or going hiking? Carrying a heavy load on one shoulder will strain your whole body. A camera backpack on the other hand distributes the load evenly, but it also makes it harder to change lens or retrieve/keep external flashes.
Hence I'm asking if anyone has any advice for this? I'm only aware of two bags currently, Think Tank Urban Disguide 60 and Crumpler Brazillion Home, that are shoulder bags which include a harness for carrying as a backpack. But both are very expensive and the Crumpler is pretty heavy too without any loading.
