Help Choosing A Camera Bag?

Postby Bearcban » Tue Oct 10, 2017 1:28 am

I'm looking for a new camera bag and I can't seem to find one that fits my criteria. I just want a bag that's inconspicuous, stylish, not too bulky and can carry my 7D with a 50mm attached along with my 70-300mm, a flash, iPad, and small accessories/cords/personal items. I currently own a Lowepro Computrekker which is far too cumbersome for small shoots and street photography. Also, I'm trying to keep my search around a maximum $70. Depending on the bag, I can compromise maybe up to $100.

I like the look of this Chrome Niko shoulder bag, but there's no room for a tablet or laptop:


I also like this one, but I'm not sure it has enough practical or easy access space:


Anyway, the links I added above are more or less what I'm looking for so if you can vouch for either one or have any other suggestions, just let me know. Thanks.

I have no experience of either bags, but you might consider converting any bag into a camera bag yourself by adding a custom foam liner. I couldn't find what I was looking for, and did this to a waterproof NorthFace messenger bag, I now love it! There are plenty if tutorials online, but it is not rocket science.

Domke are often recognised as the best, pros seem to use either those or Billingham, but both don't come cheap. I've picked up a CCS bag on sale, it was great, but I ebayed it for more than it cost.

But, what I do, as I'm pretty much in the same situation as you, wanting a certain size, and for it not to look like a camera bag, I buy a messenger bag that I like and a padded insert. Lots of camera shops sell these, but I buy of ebay, here's some examples: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DB28-Partition... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-Ciesta-Fle... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DSLR-Camera-In...

You can get pretty much exactly the size your after, with a little light googling.
