Carry-on camera bag
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.
