    Has anyone used the Kata Ergo Tech Sensitive camera bag before?

    I really don't know what to look for in a camera bag, so i just googled "best camera bag" and i found a review on cnet that recommended this one.

    http://www.amazon.com/Kata-Ergo-Tech.../dp/B000I42XWQ

    Just wondering if this is worth a $120+ and if not what would you recommend?
    Thanks in advance and Merry Christmas!

    Hi Pat
    It depends on the amount of gear you need to fit in the bag - either camera or 'extra' stuff - then choose a bag accordingly.
    I find adding a laptop with an SLR makes for a weighty package so I don't tend to do that - although the laptop compartment is very handy for fitting a fold-up reflector into.
    As a brand Kata have some very good reviews on 'gear specific' sites - youtube has a lot of people who show you what they fit in various camera bags on videos.
    Good luck with the search.

    I use a Sensitivity V. It's good if you only need to bring a small amount of gear and need it to be compact. It does act as a "girdle for you stuff", so while the profile will be small, it will be dense and fairly heavy. It can hold a surprising amount of stuff, but camera-wise,the compartment was great when I had a dRebel, tight with my 50D, and a little too small with my 5Dii. Camera wise, there's really only enough room for a camera with lens and one other piece of gear, if you want the separate top compartment to stay separate. If you want to carry more than one additional lens, you probably want a different bag, or plan to combine compartments.

    Also, the laptop compartment fits a 13" macbook comfortably, but not the 15".

    I find mine worth the money, but then I'd gone through a lowpro Compudaypack and found it was too big for me.

    I think you just have to look around; I found this but it isn't big, however I like the single strap idea.

    Here is an article on selecting a camera bag:

    It's not as simple as it looks.

    The bag looks pretty good, but carrying a camera without a strap in crowds never seemed like a good idea. I know straps are a pain in the tuckus, but the camera gets accidently knocked from your hand, it hits your belly, not the pavement.

    There are so many after market bags online it's really hard to choose, but after reading your posts it seems like any right size bag will do. But if anyone still wants to recommend a bag for traveling, preferably one that can carry a 5dii, at least 2 lenses, tripod and accessories that would be awesome.

    Have a guess :)

    Personally, I just use 3 Lowepro Lumina bags - probably around 4l capacity each. 1 for the camera, 1 for lenses, and the last for filters (and two big tool bags for lighting and misc equipment). For me it's a versatile approach - I can take as little or as much as I need.

    For "greater distances" I just chuck the above into a pack - strap on a tripod - and "away I go". Not for everyone, but works for me.

    One of the sites I tend to use when selecting a bag is cambags.com.
