    Default Need Backpack advice for long europe stay

    Halo. Hope someone can provide some advice.
    Thanks in advance.

    Going to work in italy for 1 year and probably be travelling along europe for the weekends, especially to france (as my gf will be there).
    Planning to buy a deuter backpack to fit my clothes and also the camera gear.
    Is it better to bring along a digital canon body with canon lens or a mechanical nikon fm2, for this duration of 1 yr?
    and currently setting my eyes on DEUTER AIRCONTACT 65+10 which sells at ard 210SGD after discount, will that be sufficient for my purpose?
    or is it better to get another brand or larger storage.

    This is because also going to bring along a huge luggage bag(for check in) whilst taking the deuter and laptop bag as hand luggage. Is it possible?

    Thanks.

    Cheers

    why not get a laptop-cum-camera back pack like Computrekker and Stealth AW.

    if i were you, i will probably bring the FM2...
    europe is a good place for street photography (manual!!!)
    bringing digital..is okie just that you need to be constantly on alert as there are pickpockets/robbers around and you definitely do not want to attract much attention with your DSLR. (gaffer tape perhaps?)



    just my 2cents worth
