My tip of the week

My tip for the day

I have ceased to be surprised by the number of people that carry their camera in an ordinary shopping bag. One lady I met carried hers in a plastic carrier bag from a very posh shop, maybe she wanted to avoid being recognised as a photographer but didn’t mind being recognised as a world class shopper.

It’s really worth spending some money on a decent bag. I use Lowepro and I have to say they perform really well. In fact I have never worn one out. There are however, many other makes on the market and you should check around to see what is the most practical and comfortable for you. Just make sure you buy something that is well padded inside to stop the gear knocking together and has some protection from the elements. It’s money well spent, a decent bag will last you for years and prolong the life of your equipment.
