There are many photography bags. Just go out and try to have your pick, you’ll be at awe. I think that choosing your first camera bag can be an overwhelming decision for the new photographer. (More experianmced photographers don’t choose a photography bag, they buy them all).

This is where something like the new Stash Master 13L from Mindshift gear can help. You can keep your old (non-photography) bag and eat it too. Essentially the Stash Master is a padded cube with a zipper on top. It’s kinda the right size to fit in almost any bag and convert it into a camera carrying device.

I’ve been using a similar solution from F-Stop gear for a long while now. Instead of taking a heavy photography roller, I am using two f-stop – Shallow Small ICU units inside a super-light Samsonite Prodigy.

But Stash Master is not limiter to carry-ons. It will fit in any standard backpack. And if you do not need any camera specific features, like quick access, it can be a great solution for keeping your current backpack until you find that holy grail of the perfect photography bag. (trust me, there is none. you’ll just keep buying more and more bags. and you are going to love it too).

Here are some options as to how to stuff the Stash Master

The Stash Master 13L will set you back 59.99 over at B&H or Amazon and should start shipping on the 25th.

    This is great, I’ve been doing this ever since F-Stop gear came up with this 10 years ago, just like Udi. Udi knows best.

    Something like this is great if you’re into hiking/camping/backpacking and use a dedicated backpack for camping/hiking gear. While there are good photography backpacks with proper support, they’re expensive. You’re just about better off getting an Osprey backpack that has customizable supports and better padding and getting one of these camera inserts.

    Certain backpacks are far tougher than camera backpacks and have more compartments and better ergo. Translated the ability to adapt something to fit my needs doesn’t come off a shelf. I love DYI because it means I don’t cast a vote by spending an extra $100 needlessly for a name tag. Today someone named Josh can call his bags “The Josh” and add $100 to the price tag of what are ridiculous markups anyway ?Made by employees who we are led to believe get paid? NOT paying a ridiculous amount and NOT contributing to the exploitation of international workers…. are noble reasons for DYI. However the truth is 1930’s Depression handed down DYI to those awake enough to listen, something taught by our relatives on how to survive without being led around by money? It’s not a fad today, it is an inbred genetic imprint.

    Also;
    If it doesn’t have a Union Label, then no label matters to me…I want to know who I pay is being paid fairly?

    Sweat shops is precisely who your designer name tags support today, here at home and abroad don’t kid yourself. Bags have 800% to 1000% markups in retail, workers get paid pennies to make your $250 bag.

    As photographers I always thought the one thing we all shared in common was our ability to see
