There’s No Such Thing As The Perfect Camera Bag

Because there is no such thing as the perfect style of photography!  Everyone has different needs for a carrying case. These depend greatly on your style of shooting and the environments in which you will be using your camera.  If you’re a versatile photographer and you shoot in a variety of situations, you may find that having one bag isn’t enough.  It’s okay to have multiple bags for different scenarios.  Here I’ll share a variety of cases which have proven their value, and the types of photography they suit well.  Read on to find out what camera bag meets your needs!

1. Compact Cases

If all you are carrying with you is a point-and-shoot, or a small bodied camera and single lens combination, then a case which just fits your camera may be all you need.

This Lowepro compact camera case is available for under $10. A small investment to protect your expensive camera.

While your camera may fit easily in a pocket or purse, these won’t protect it as well as a dedicated camera case. LCD screens and lenses may be scratched by your keys, pens, or other items sharing a pocket. Dust, which inevitably accumulates with frequent purse usage, can get into the cracks of your gear.  You want to avoid all of this!

Carrying a compact case can prevent scratches and shelter your camera from dirt and provide protection from water damage.
