Carry-on cam­era bag

Amateur Photographer - - Tech Talk -

Q With the hol­i­day sea­son over and sum­mer now (op­ti­misti­cally) ap­proach­ing I am think­ing about book­ing a pho­tog­ra­phy hol­i­day. I will want to take all of my kit (Fu­ji­film X-T2 and XF 16-55mm, XF 55-200mm and XF 35mm f/1.4 lenses) with me and will prob­a­bly be fly­ing. I would like a bag that is per­fect for carry on. Do you have any rec­om­men­da­tions? Kath­leen Smith A Find­ing the right bag is a very sub­jec­tive process. My big­gest piece of ad­vice would be to visit one of our stores across the UK in or­der to find a bag that fits you prop­erly. Make sure you take a tape mea­sure and your kit with you so that you can cor­rectly check the sizes of the bags you try. Be­fore you visit, do some re­search on the size and weight re­stric­tions for carry- on lug­gage of some of the top air­lines as they vary, and take these di­men­sions with you to the shop. Also try the bag on whilst wear­ing a jumper and a coat, as well as a thin layer like a T-shirt. This will help you de­ter­mine how com­fort­able the straps are wher­ever you choose to head off to. Re­mem­ber it isn’t just cam­era kit that needs to fit. You need room for your es­sen­tials too! So keep an eye out for bags with waist and chest sup­ports – these help to take the strain off your neck, back and shoul­ders.
