A Place for Everything and Everything In It’s Place – Part 1: Lowepro

The right tool for the right job.
The right lens for the right shot.
And of course the right bag to put it all in. Sure, I’ll admit that the number of bags sitting around here almost equal the number of camera bodies.
Well…maybe not that many.
But it IS critical to have the right bag to carry your equipment depending on the shoot. It’s an access, weight, comfort thing.

Lowepro began as a camera bag company catering to the needs of backpackers. That same experience continues to translate to todays shooters.

Personally we dig the SlingShot 300 for crowded shooting venues such as clubs, This new FastBack does a great job of combining the same attributes for access, while giving increased support on the back for carrying around.

The Flipside is one I’m trying to figure out. I know what it’s used for and how.But flipping my long lens to the front of my waist doesn’t do a thing for me. I guess that’s why they make so many bags. Something for everyone.

So go to your local camera store, bring some gear you may use on a shoot, load up these puppies and see what you think.
that is truly the best way to see what’s right. This video shows you a good look at the bags. But only you know what fits right and serves your needs. Love the internet but some things you just have to touch.

We’ll be back tomorrow with another video from PMA. Hey, there were a lot of things to look at!
