My Top 3 Camera Bag Picks

My Top 3 Camera Bag Picks

The camera bag is arguably the second most important part of a photographer’s kit, so it’s important to pick the right one for you.

Many photographers will spend a great deal of time researching various camera bag styles to ensure that they purchase the right one for their needs and requirements. Your camera is an investment so it’s important to protect it appropriately for its use.

As a landscape photographer, I find myself in many situations where the weather can turn at any minute and the safety of my equipment could be easily compromised if not properly protected.

Here are my top 3 camera bags that I trust to protect my equipment.

The main advantage of using a bag from the Tamrac Velocity range is that it can be worn like a backpack but also wins on accessibility and comfort.

The overall structure of this bag is solid and smooth, providing the user with, not only comfort but, trust that it will stay intact for a substantial amount of time.

Inside you’ll find assorted compartments of, what appears to be, bottomless pits that are designed for specific use.

This is a great bag for photographers that are regularly on the move; requiring support and lots of unexpected space for their bursting collection.

Tamrac makes its second appearance in this shortlist of camera bag favourites, and there’s a good reason for it. They’re excellent quality bags!

The Tamrac 3370 Aero 70 is a bit bigger than its Velocity counterpart, but it still offers fantastic accessibility and comfort.

Due to the larger size you’ll find that you’ll be able to fit a lot more into your backpack, whether that’s more equipment or perhaps supplies to keep you going throughout the day.

From a comfort perspective, this bag is an excellent choice. Each section that’s in contact with the body is well padded and provides superb support even after many hours of carrying heavy equipment to various locations.

This bag also boasts some fantastic protection qualities, with a durable and lightweight rain cover, heavy duty YKK splashguard zippers and high-grade buckles.

Capacity-wise, you’ll be able to fit all of your kit and also throw in a 2L reservoir!

Hopefully this will help you in your quest to find the perfect camera bag for your style and activity level. As a landscape photographer, my main priorities are; comfort, capacity and longevity.
