    Hi, guys,

    Now, I'm designing a camera bag. I'm curious about how people carry camera with general items. I know some people carry camera bag with second & extra regular message bag or backpack. And some people own different camera bags or camera backpacks then switch camera around. I'm thinking design a modular system to solve this. I'd love to hear your feedback. Thanks!

    Mike

    If the modular system really works, then I'm interested.

    I just have a small divided bag. For modular, I'd probably look into something like this combined with this.

    I recently bought a new walk around bag - a lowepro passport sling iii, that I like because it fits my 5100 w/ lens, extra lens, flash or filters, small accessories and has pockets for my personal items. Its easy on my back, easy access and expandable. I like the cross body style for weight distribution. I have other bags that I use for storage and travel. The lowepro has removable padding so it can be folded up to fit inside the other bags. That was a big selling point for me. My only complaint about the lowepro is that the outside pockets aren't secured to carry anything valuable. I added velcro but would have preferred zips.

    If you're creating a bag, please make sure it has inside and outside secure pockets for phone, keys, id/money/credit cards, glasses, sunglasses etc. Having to carry more than 1 bag is a deal breaker for me and I don't like to have to stuff my pockets all day.

    Let me know when my custom bag is ready. Thanks!
