ya, my colleagues always see me with my lowepro bag... hahaha also can train ur stamina in carrying the stuff so u can go for long hours at events and all that. then also can volunteer when the event happens to be lacking a photographer
but thats because i dun have birding lenses like the birders do and thus i dun have to lug too much around. cheers
Wow looks like alot of people often bring their camera with them:thumbsup: Although its a lil heavy and bulky, I think it should not pose a problem to us guys and even some ladies. They can always use a lighter setup. For guys, its good training actually. And we spend so much on photographic equipment we should make full use of them.
