Thread: Camera Bag Recommendations??

    Default Camera Bag Recommendations??

    Can anyone recommend a small / nicely fit bag for a Nikon D70 + Kit lense + Maybe a 50mm prime.

    which way is best to put your camera? face down, face up, sideways, Lens detached/attached.

    do you need to put silica gel in a camera bag... or is it redundant since its open-aired.

    how much padding is needed.

    for just these things, i would use a lowepro nova 2. it will hold the above mentioned as well as a flash. it would also hold something larger than the 50mm in its place. the camera would be placed lens down...

    however, consider the fact that you might be getting more equipment and plan for the future before jumping in.

    check out this site and you will see many bags some of which will fit your needs. Cathay photo sells these bags and you can go there to look for tha bag you like on the website.

    you dont have to put silica gel in it... but keep the camera in a electric dry cabinet when not in use.

    also the bag depends on where u are going... if for normal shooting and nothing too straineous i suggest a lowerpro or equivalent shoulder bag. If u go on many trekking trips through mountains and jungles like i do, i recommend a backpack but since so little stuff in there its really up to u... one word of advice tho, spend liberally on a good bag and not some cheapo one at carrefour or NTUC, u don't want to drop that expensive camera and equipement of urs and destroy it becuz of a cheap bag...
