Choosing a bag for your camera requires as much time and energy as choosing your camera. Like any other bag, it also come in various shapes and sizes. A good bag should protect the valuable camera within as well as be comfortable to carry around for long hours. Here are some tips for choosing your camera bags.
The bag you choose should be very comfortable to carry around. You could be walking outdoors on rough terrain and if your camera bag is uncomfortable, you will not be able to concentrate on photography.
It does not come cheap. So ensure that you invest in a quality bag. You would definitely need a bag that would last a long time. Check the quality of the clasp and zipper. Materials like reinforced cotton, Cordura and ballistic nylon are very durable and best recommended for camera bags.
An ideal camera bag will be easily accessible. You should be able to easily reach out for any camera gear. You shouldn't be fumbling for any accessory thereby letting the moment pass.
A good camera bag will prevent dust, water and moisture from seeping into the compartments where the camera and its various accessories are stored. Quality camera bags will have padded interiors which give additional protection to the expensive camera within. If you plan to do a lot of travelling via public transportation, it is recommended that you buy this bag which has locked zippers.
There is no perfect bag for your camera which suits all situations. Hence, most professional photographers own more than one. Here are some commonly found Nikon Camera Bags.
Shoulder bags are apt for those who like to carry less. These shoulder bags can fit in one DSLR camera and a couple of lenses and accessories. Shoulder bags are mostly used by those who change their lenses frequently. Those who plan to buy a shoulder bag, ensure that it has enough of padding on the straps or else it could lead to shoulder pains.
Backpacks are recommended for those who have a lot of things to carry. If you have more than one camera and three and more lenses and accessories, then opt for a backpack as it can easily fit in all the gear. However, remember that it not as easy to access the gear in a backpack as a shoulder bag. Avoid backpacks that are heavily padded as it simply adds weight thereby causing discomfort. A backpack with a waist belt will help in the even distribution of weight. If you are an outdoor person, get Nikon Camera Bags that are weather resistant or has a rain cover.
This type of bags are a great choice for those who want to carry some load but do not want the bulkiness of a backpack. These sling bags can be slung over your shoulder like a shoulder bag for easy access and then pushed back like a backpack so that it doesn't get in your way.posted by michaelabela.weebly.com
