Travel Bags for Photographers on the Move

Camera Bags that Travel Well

Traveling anywhere with sights to see? You most likely are packing a camera. And if you would like to take pictures that are better than ordinary, like professional, than you are also packing a DSLR. We have the Canon Digital Rebel XSi. To fit this type of camera plus all of the other gadgets, travel backpack needs to be high capacity with multiple pockets and easy access.
It is a good thing that there are more and more bags coming out that have these features plus take into consideration going through security points at airports.
Think Tank Photo has an Airport™ series of travel specific camera backpacks designed to make maneuvering through airports a quick endeavor. The three backpacks – the Airport Accelerator, Airport Commuter and Airport Essentials – all have quick access pockets for both laptops and iPad, a top pocket for boarding passes and three sturdy handles to ensure easy placement and retrieval from overhead bins.
A great travel camera bag is also inconspicuous. For that purpose and many more that I wrote about in other posts (15 Essentials to have with you when travelingDeliberations of a Traveling Photographer (aka my wife) & What women want - travel edition) my bag of choice is the Lowerpro. It fits the camera in and looks and can function as a regular shoulder bag. As my wife also pointed out this bag is also unisex. It can be carried by women or men with no complaints from either side. It is light, has comfortable straps, great looking yet rugged exterior. The pockets are deep and varied to fit multitude of gadgets as well as other supplies.
Most recently we used this bag on a gig shooting a baby shower. There are pictures from this shoot plus many more on Svetik Photography page. It was great for a commute into the city. There was no way to tell what was in side the bag. And the camera remained snugly inside during the trip. We also packed in all of the accessories, paperwork, and other things in there.


Why good to have on a trip:
- Easy to carry
- Lighter than most backpacks
- Conveniently fits in camera plus accessories
- Multiple pockets
- Inconspicuous
