    Default HK Trip, what bag to bring

    Hihi,

    It's my turn to ask.
    I have booked a light to HK for 4 days.
    I am planning to bring my gears and wondering what is a good traveling bag for my trip.
    Should I bring a back pack and bring it along on the plane or a sling bag?

    Items's may include 24-70, 15mm fisheye, 50mm and flash. SHould I bring along my hefty 70-200? Please advise.. =)

    For travelling, my choice is Domke bag with backstrap.
    If you anticipate a lot of action (I mean you changing of lens, lol), you sling the bag (journalist style).
    If you walkabout with your 24-70mm, then you backpack it (distribute the weight evenly).
    For me, I don't mind heavier load in order not to regret after. Bought such an expensive lens to shoot in Singapore only seems no logic to me.

    Guess you are not 1st time travel with DSLR?
    1st of all, IMO:
    1. I always bring back pack, since I will sling my tripod.
    2. Backpack distribute weight and makes me less tired.
    3. I like to bring a tele (~200mm FF equiv) but might just keep it in room, I will roughly estimate weather i bring it out for a particular day. Say if I'm going on street and hope to take some candid, then i'll bring.
    4. I suggest not to bring the 50mm. Unless it is the very light 50f1.8....
    5. I use lowepro backpack, but guess you may check out the other forum about bags, other type also good. Need try yourself.
