There are so many camera bag options out there. Long gone are the days where your DSLR camera hangs out in a little, ugly, square bag just meant for cameras.
Whether you’re a professional photographer or someone who just enjoys photographing her kids regularly, having a good camera bag can make the experience more enjoyable.
For a camera bag to be a favorite of mine it has to:
be able to hold and protect my camera
be comfortable to wear
not look like a camera bag
be able to hold more than just my camera gear (customizable is a plus)
The camera bag I use and love is the Peak Design Everyday Backpack.
In fact, I have had several Peak Design bags and loved them. They are durable, comfortable, easy to customize the inside to fit my own needs, and they don’t look like camera bags.
The backpack style is comfortable for me to shoot in, yet durable that I do not worry about setting it on the ground nearby while I’m photographing my kids or another family.
Another favorite bag is the Peak Design Everyday Messenger bag.
I had my messenger bag for a long time and loved it. Unless you love hiking with your camera bag, or travel often with your camera, I’d suggest this bag. It’s cute, easy access while shooting and not giant.
The only reason I upgraded to the backpack was because my gear had outgrown the bag and my back needed more full body support for hiking around with my camera bag.
As I said in the beginning, there are SO many great camera bags out there. These are two that I have used and can personally recommend. They work with how I shoot and how I take my camera everywhere with me.
If you have any questions about camera bags, reach out. I’m happy to help give recommendations based on my own use.
