My Search For The Perfect Camera Bag

Once I thought I had the “perfect” camera bag – then my requirements changed, so I got another one, then I got a new one, and a new one – now I need a dedicated closet for these bags 🙁

Is it really that hard? – I am not able to find a bag that satisfies all my needs, these are my requirements:

  • I don’t care if shoulder bag or backpack – even when I’m doing a short hike (< 5 hours) I’ve been comfortable with a messenger bag in the past
  • I need to carry the bag on a plane (carry-on luggage)
  • I need to carry a large DSLR + 1-2 extra lenses, a couple of memory cards (and optionally a tripod)
  • My 14″ laptop should fit in somehwere
  • I need to carry a 0.5+ litre water bottle (hydration pack also possible)
  • The bag needs to be weather resistent

If you think you know the perfect bag for me – please let me know!

my pre-holiday Schdraggel #1

I’ve just been looking on what to do and where to go this summer on the Azores … and it seems that 18 days on the islands won’t be enough to visit all the awesome places on this atlantic archipel! 🙁
