I am looking around for a new camera bag to buy to store my XT, several lenses and some accessories.
While I like the idea of a backpack that allows me to distribute weight across my back, holds a tripod strapped onto the outside and keeps my stuff out of the way when I am shooting or walking, I've also heard some bad things about them such as:
-gear hard to access without taking bag off.
-bags that open accidentally and gear falls out.
it seems like a shoulder bag solves those issues, but unless you sling the bag around to sit on your back, it's going to weigh down one shoulder. i think even with it slung around, the weight still won't be equally distributed.
while i can see myself reaching for my camera while walking and wearing a bag, and not wanting to stop to access the contents, i can't see myself making any big lens changes or anything.
any thoughts on which is a better style? or a specific bag that might address all these needs?
