Digital Photography Bags & Vests

Avoid the common mistakes, like the ones I made, and get the right digital photography equipment storage, transport and use items. Learn what to look for in a camera bag or vest, and what to avoid.

In 1971, I purchased my first camera: a brand new Canon F1 SLR 35mm. I still needed my tripod and light meter, but I also found that I needed to carry more accessories on my shoots. The Canon F1 allowed changing lenses, and could host a whole gaggle of new and interesting photography accessories - accessories that could improve the results of my picture-taking events. As the years passed by, more lenses and accessories became available for the F1, and my stockpile of photography equipment grew.

Mistakes I Made
I don't recall what year I purchased my first camera bag, but I do remember that it was leather and quickly became too small. The leather was heavy and required regular care and maintenance. Buying leather was mistake #1. When I bought it, I bought it slightly larger than what I needed to hold all of my equipment, but in less than two years it was way too small. That was mistake #2. Then I bought a really big bag made of heavy canvass. It would hold everything except my largest tripod. That was mistake #3. When filled, that bag weighed more than my German shepherd - hardly useful for my wildlife photography treks in the hills and mountains.

What I Learned
When I started into digital photography, I had learned that 1) I would be purchasing (slowly) all new digital photography accessories and lenses. And in digital photography, there are many more available than in the old world of film photography. 2) One single camera bag was not the answer to my needs. 3) Function must come above fashion.

Bags For Transporting Digital Photography Equipment
There are two types of bags you should consider when buying a camera bag for transporting your digital photography equipment from Point A to Point B: hard bags (or cases) and soft bags (or cases). If you are going to personally transport your digital photography equipment and accessories, such as in your automobile, a soft case will likely serve you well - and save you some money. If you must hand your precious digital photography equipment and accessories over to someone to transport, such as an airline, bus or rail line, then a hard case is worth the investment.

Today's soft cases for digital photography equipment are tough and usually very well padded. Most, especially the larger bags, even allow you to simply adjust internal parts to better fit your digital photography equipment and accessories. Don't go too lowball on this bag as it protects your digital photography investment. Make sure it has plenty of padding - especially around the outside of the bag. Also make sure it closes securely, but opens quickly and easily.

Hard cases are available in plastic and metal. I much prefer the plastic ones: they are lighter, don't get marred as much and are significantly cheaper. I have three hard cases by Pelican that I use when flying, and they have repeatedly impressed me with their strength and durability. These cases accept padlocks. I prefer combination padlocks - just in case the keys are misplaced on the way to a shoot.

Bags To Have Along With You On Your Digital Photography Shoots
The bulk of your digital photography equipment is in your automobile, but that's ¼ mile from the photography location - maybe further. So you'll need a smaller bag to keep the necessary digital photography equipment and accessories handy. A relatively small, soft-sided bag is ideal for this purpose. The bag should be big enough to hold your camera, backup batteries, backup storage card, two extra lenses, a small cleaning kit and your pen and notepad. I chose one that also allowed me to attach my monopod to the outside with two small, quick-detach straps. I highly recommend that this bag have a shoulder strap - that way you can always have it with you and still be snapping photographs.

Pro Tip: Purchase a small amount of dense foam at a furniture repair store or hardware store. Custom cut it to add extra protection to your digital photography bags and cases.

A Photographer's Vest May Be Just What You Need
Most non-professional digital photography buffs don't ever look into getting a photographer's vest. I think this is a mistake. These vests, of which I have three different kinds, are invaluable on many digital photography shoots. Photographer's vests come in all sorts of colors, weights, and with all manner of 'extras.' Basically, they provide the digital photography buff with countless pockets and slots in which to store their digital photography equipment and accessories. Since your digital photography equipment is stored on your upper body, weight and the need for hands, are not concerns at all.

Photographer's vests are available in a broad range of costs. To find the photographer's vest that suits your specific digital photography needs, do a search for "photographer's vests" online. If you're really into digital photography, your new photographer's vest will quickly become one of your must-have-along digital photography accessories. NOTE: avoid photographer's vests with black metal hooks, rings or zippers - they get extremely hot to the touch in the summertime.

As always, when you find a digital photography bag or vest that you like, do some price checking and comparison online. There are vast differences in the prices of digital photography items online. The more you save on one digital photography item, the more digital photography items you can have - for that new bag or vest.
