Any one have an recommendation for a camera back that looks similar to a regular backpack kinda like a jansport, or hersel bag; I'm sure it's been asked a million times, but thanks in advanced

I used to use shoulder bags, but then the load got heavier and I got older so now I use this: https://www.bhphotovid​eo.com ...onal_series_anvil_2​7.html (external link)

Excellent bag.

I've got an older LowePro Onmi Traveller (It's discontinued now).

I like it because it has padded dividers.. I carry 3 lenses, my flash, spare batteries, my filters, lens cleaning stuff, memory cards and my remote cable release... I have several large lenses that I carry seperately.

It's hard for me to imagine carrying that much on a belt without shoulder straps.

The shoulder straps would be good.
One good way is to stick the whole 70-200 with body into the pouch like this.

there is a SOLID facebook group for CAMERA BAG ENTHUSIASTS.

the group contains reps from THINK TANK, HOLD FAST, BILLINGHAM, ETC.
as well as photographers.
growing fast, just started this year.

I encourage anyhow who is a bag-o-holic, or passionate about their bags to join the crew.


I search constantly for bags. Thank you.

My every day carry is my Think Tank TurnStyle 20. It works well for my lighter gear. I bought a Billingham Hadley Pro; used it for a while. It works well for smaller mirrorless gear. When I added the Oly grip to my m5 Oly it bulged a fair bit. a6000 with 24-240 Full Frame lens fits well.

That guy is wearing a shoulder harness to shift the weight of the belt to his shoulders.

How much equipment do you need it to hold? You probably get a backpack like one of the ones you mentioned and get a padded insert from Amazon.


Check out https://brevite.co/ (external link) they offer a few different backpack style bags.

I recently got a Lowepro Vertex 200 so I could fit my Sigma 150-500 attached to the body with some other stuff.

forum: Camera Bags, Backpacks & Cases

That's the bag I've used for several years. It's maxed-out now, and yesterday I started looking for a bigger bag with wheels. I came to the conclusion that it's best to keep that backpack and make sue the next rolling bag case is only a little bigger. That way neither one will be too heavy. But I have 2 full frame DSLR with lenses on them, plus 5 other lenses in that backpack and spares of batteries and other stuff. It's a heavy lift. Great bag though.

Actually, I cut some straps off including the waist strap that I never used. If I can get one body and a couple lenses out of it, the bag should hold up for a long time more.

That's my first bag. My 2 DSLRs outgrew it. But it was one of my best investments. I still keep it in my van and transfer one body and two lenses when I go hiking or bushwhacking in the coast redwoods. That bag as been through thousands of rugged acres of Redwood National and State Parks the past 6 years or so. I don't anything has ever ripped on it.
