Thread: The Way A Camera Is Kept

    Default The Way A Camera Is Kept

    Hi Guys, is it okay to let the camera be faced down with lens attached when kept in the bag? Or will it be better for the lens to be facing up?

    Have a look at the various camera bag websites. They demonstrate different approaches - and they wouldn't suggest anything that is somehow remotely "endangering" your camera, would they?

    i have mine with the lens facing downwards, for ease of keeping and taking out of bag. can also place side ways if ur bag has space. for me it's about convenience

    the camera is a tool. and its a tool that i abuse. my camera is not a ferrari. its a lorry. and lorry are supposed to have usermarks as scars of war.

    just take care so that it will still work, dun take care by putting it in a dry cabi and carrying the cabi everywehre u go. u shld have an idea of how much u need to "place ur camera" from this i hope

    Funny person.

    Spend so much money get Flagship model. Kiasi about the power button, but yet insist on changing lenses with power still on, and refuse to buy a dry cab that cost $100.

    Buy camera for show one is it?

    Silica gel from wang wang crackers... LOL

    Are you for real?

    it doesn't matter.

    why limit yourself to down or up? if i mount a 50mm, i can even put it sideways.

    usually i will put it face down so that when i grab it, it will be holdable immediately once i take it out..

    If you are lazy to turn the power on and off, are you lazy to adjust settings also? Just shoot in auto mode? waaaaaaaa

    well that is what i did for myself too. im just thinking about the pressure the body might have on the lens, anything that i do not know. But the replies so far seems to tell me that its perfectly fine to place the camera in any position.

    the only thing you need to worry about is with big lenses, you don't mount the camera on a tripod with the body as a mount.

    that is simple physics.. for bags, not a problem.

    It's ironic that u mention this...
    Today I saw someone with a Canon 70-200 f2.8 mounted, mount his camera by the camera body instead of the tripod collar (which was evidently there). Maybe he was testing his ballhead.
