If there’s one thing any photographer likes it’s new equipment or gear. A new lens, a new camera body, new filters or something as simple as a new lens cleaner we love it all and are proud of what we have. I’ve just recently gotten a new piece of gear. I normally carry my gear around in a backpack and I love the thing but it’s kind of conspicuous when you just want to walk around. I’ve been looking for something small to carry the camera around in that doesn’t look like a camera bag and I found it the other day at a very good price. It’s a simple military style messenger bag from a local Army & Navy store (Joey’s Army Navy Store). I had to put a little padding in the bottom but the body fits in it snugly with my 300mm lens attached and I have room to put another lens or two in there. I may need to figure out a way to compartment the bag a little better on the inside but it works as is, that’s just me wanting to tinker with stuff.
It’ll be nice to have a non-descript bag to carry around, I’ll pretty much have the camera wherever I go now (probably to the annoyance of those around me.)
