First, full disclosure: I know a few of the team at ThinkTankPhoto and I really like them, they’re a really nice group of people. So you may think it’s because I really like the people that I like their bags so much. Except I really like my dentist but I don’t like what he does to me every six months for my check up. I suppose this is my way of saying that I can be objective even though I am reviewing something that is made by people that I like.
So, you’ve got your camera, your lenses, and your lights. It’s all well and good having the kit, but where do you store it? How do you transport it to a location? Well, nut surprisingly, that’s where bags come into play.
This list contains a number of bags that we use to store and transport out kit. While there’s no single bag out there that suits every purpose, each offers its own unique advantages.
I am not going to hide it, I am a big Think Tank fan. In fact the bag we used to carry around in photokina is a ThinkTank Roller Derby. I do own an Airport International as well (see review here), but if I need a laptop, it was out of the question. It has no laptop pocket.
So the fact that Think Tank finally added a laptop pocket to the bag will probably make a lot of people happy.
We’ve curated and shared our 2015 gift guides for cameras, lenses, lighting and accessories. Now, we’re on to our last collection, camera bags. You know the thing that you buy at the begging of each new year when you make the resolution to not buy any other piece of gear this year other than THAT bag.
Below is a round-up of some of our favorite camera bags to pick up for yourself or loved ones this holiday season.[Read More…]
