I find myself having plenty of bags but I am always on the search for other bag options...

what gives?

Lol

I've seen some on here who definitely have issues. Personally I prefer individual cases for each piece of gear so I can throw them in whatever bag I am going to use that day. I use backpacks and even an old fanny/lumbar pack mostly.

Seldom is there a 'perfect bag'...each of us has different requirements and different key benefits. And I find needs are circumstantial...depen​ding upon the circumstance I may prefer one bag over another, and the preferences are changing. In one case a conventional over-shoulder bag, in another case a backpack type bag, in another case a semihardsided rectangular case, and in other circumstances a thin courier bag.
Kinda like women and purses, the 'best' is circumstantial to the occasion and even to the outfit worn!

It's nice to have bag options, but I dedicate a de minimis amount of time to it. There's zero exhilaration in it for me.

I have bags that fit whatever purpose they need to fit. The bag I use for hockey is not the one I use for travel or on-site portrait photography. I tend to find it funny when I see people show up somewhere with a bag the size of Texas and it has all their gear.

LOL.......I tried that on my wife when she voiced her concerns about getting another bag...........it did not go over well.........


Don't even begin to think I'm criticizing your images.
Just a natural curiosity.

No. if anything I'd prefer to use the least amount possible.

Lens fetish, on the other hand...

Nu-uh, been shooting over a decade and still had the same bag I bought for my first camera, I got a shoulder bag for my mirrorless kit for my birthday but that's about it.

I think you just need to face it Talley, you're addicted to any kind of gear! ;-)a

Since I use a cart to carry around my gear, I only use one bag. I can get everything I need to bring in a Domke F-1X. That is until I find a way to buy one of the super telephoto lenses.... then I'll have to rethink things. At the moment, this doesn't seem likely.... so no bag shopping for me. ;)

It took me a while, but I now seem to have a range of bags (about 4) that cover my needs - one of them always suits whatever I need to carry for a particular occasion. I'm not ruling anything out on the new bag front, however . . .


Cheers, Damien

I own all of Peak Design bags except the Backpack, I have F-Stop right now, and just switched from Canon to Fuji XT-2 so considering getting a smaller backpack such as the Peak Design Everyday....

Just picked up the Sling this week and love it, already had the Messenger 15, straps and all.....hooked! :)
