Hi all! I need a camera bag that has the following characteristics/criteria.
I am still undecided on what type of bag I should use; a waist, sling-over-the-shoulder type or a backpack. Are there any websites that compare the advantage and disadvantage of each form factor? I would think that a sling back is ideal for me, as I don't have multiple bodies, lenses, flashes etc. Also, between a sling and waist, a sling should provide more comfort and stability.
- Durable and won't fray on me. At least better than [COLOR=#ccccdd]deuter bags.
- Weather proof
- Dust resistant (I'm allergic to dust so I don't want to bring dust back to my room).
- Water proof?
- Easy to wash and clean.
- Able to hold memory cards and preferably located on the flap/lid for easy access.
- Able to hold 2 rather short (physical) lens. I don't have those mammoth f/0.1 90000mm lens.
- Need not hold more than 1 camera body.
- Tripod holder so it does not swing around.
Please advice! Thanks.
I also need a good wet and dry sensor cleaning product. I want the best possible. Space is not a concern for the wet one
[COLOR=#ccccdd]Thom Hogan suggest the following:
*I don't know why the hyperlinks in the quote are not being underlined.[COLOR=#ccccdd]Photographic Solutions Sensor Swabs and Eclipse or E2 solution
The original commercial wet cleaning solution evolved into a good basic tool that can be relied upon. When I need a wet cleaning, this is what I use.[COLOR=#ccccdd]Visible Dust Sensor Brush
The Econo 1.6x kit is all you really need for dry cleaning a Nikon DSLR (plus some good canned air). It's also worth getting the Sensor Brush Wash to keep your brush in top shape. 10/29/07: it appears that Visible Dust is getting out of the plain brush business. Note that I have reservatins about the Arctic Butterfly, though I use it for some travel. I haven't used all the other plain brushes that are available, so you're currently on your own for a brush recommendation if you can't find the Econo 1.6x kit.[COLOR=#ccccdd]Dust Aid Ultra Clean solution
A slightly better solution than Eclipse or E2 for those that travel, as it can be transported without issue and does a good job of cleaning without streaks.
The bag and cleaning product bunddled with the camera are: Lowepro Rezo 190 bag and lenspen Digiklear. Are they any good?
