Hi, travelers. Camera bags which go beyond the sort of one camera and lens bags most travelers have are a specialized sort.
Lowepro is a very distinguished company which produces first class camera bags. Among them are a bag which will easily handle two cameras and several lenses. It’s called the Lowepro ProTactic 450AW. (See photo) It delivers on all fronts: versatility, comfort and organization. It has quick-grab pockets for accessibility and opens from the back for setups when you are readying for a shoot.
It’s lightweight and has a rain cover for when you get caught in the elements. There are cinch straps and tripod cups, which are included. It has multiple pockets to keep lenses and a flash in the back opening of the bag. The pockets are all closed with patches which you can adjust to fit your lenses securely and exactly.
Another thing which is interesting is a camera case which has a place for a computer. The LoweproTactic 450 will carry a 15-inch MacBook Pro or another 15 inch PC. There are other models in the ProTactic line which are smaller, in case you do not need something of this highest quality and size.
There’s a new kind of tripod which is from a established firm, JOBY. It wraps around things which you may find in the way, between you and your shot. It’s called a JOBY GorillaPod and it’s terrific. It will attach to anything from a fencepost to the side of a mountain!
It’s great advantage is that it weighs less than half a pound and it will hold a camera up to 6.6 pounds. You may have and use a metal tripod which can be apropos for other types of shots. But the JOBY GorillaPod is very useful and will help you get shots when a conventional tripod can’t be used.
So, for travelers who want handsome gear, here is a suggestion; a Lowerpro ProTactic 450AW is a strong option and with a JOBY GorillaPod you can steady your camera in some unexpected places.
