Camera bags–as photographers we have to live with them to haul our gear from shoot to shoot, or even for a simple day’s outing with a camera (or two, or five). So we have to deal with these gigantic diaper bags that proudly announce to the world that “Hey! I’m a photographer! I’ve got thousands of dollars (or whichever currency your government says you have to utilize) worth of equipment in bag, why don’t you come have a look inside?” This is something we (as photographers) have had to deal with ever since the creation of the “camera bag”. Thankfully in recent years there has been a shift in styling trends to move away from the bulky, garish and obvious designs to sleeker, no-nonsense stylish bags. Head on past the break for a look at five of my favorite low-profile camera bags.
Incase – a brand well-known for their cases & bags made for iPhones, iPods and all the other Apple devices in your life – has started to produce camera bags within the last few years and recently teamed up with Dutch-born photographer Ari Marcopoulos to create a stylish and functional new sling bag with mobile-photographers (meaning on-the-go, not iPhoneographers) specifically in mind. I’ve had the last month or so to spend with the bag and see how well it works in everyday life. Head on past the break for the full review of the Incase Ari Marcopoulos Camera Bag.
