A camera bag is a necessity for any photographer (amateur or professional). This is the place where you store, transport and access your camera equipment. Your DSLR (or mirrorless) body, lenses, cables, batteries etc.
We’ve chosen these bags mainly for their functionality, ease of use and travel comfort levels.
There are going to be different things you are going to require from a bag. Some might need a bag for travel in airports, while others just need an every day carry bag... In any case we've got you covered with one of the bags below.
For an event, you may need your laptop, as you can work on your images in the downtimes. We have tried to include a few options that are big enough to carry your main gear and a laptop.
The first bag on our list is the 'Mega-Capacity Multifunction Camera Bag w/Wheels'...
Our favorite feature with this bag is the portability it provides with wheels and a handle making it a breeze to navigate an airport without lugging around a huge bag.
We also love how this bag is designed to fit into the overhead space of an airplane making it not only easy to travel with but allowing photographers to keep all their (most important) gear nearby just in case good 'ol Delta decides to lose your luggage ('cause we all know that will never happen, right? :) Here are a few specs for this bag:
- Plenty of Space and Pockets
- Holds 1-2 DLSR bodies + 4-7 lenses + more
- Fits perfectly in airline overhead compartments
- Water-Resistant, High-Performance Tech Fabric
Moving along to our next camera carrying bag is the 'Easy Access Camera Sling Bag'. It's lightweight and definitely holds it's own when it comes to storage capacity.
Our favorite feature on this bag is the 'easy access' compartment on the side making it incredibly convenient to grab your DSLR on the fly without having to dig through the bag or even put it down.
Here are a few of the key specs on this 'easy access camera sling bag':
- Soft interior lining
- Easy-access sling with color lining, compatible with most DSLR cameras
- Holds DSLR camera body with attached lens and 1-2 additional lenses and accessories
- Adjustable, padded dividers allow you to customize the camera compartment;
- Three external pockets for accessories
- One internal pocket for tablet, accessories
- Comfortable adjustable shoulder strap
The next bag on our list is the 'All-Weather Deluxe Camera Backpack' chosen for it's high quality canvas material, lightweight design and large storage capacity.
A perfect combination for photo gear and tablet, this was designed specifically for digital photographers. Photojournalists and location photographers will find it a great travel companion.
The backpack's reinforced construction,shock-absorbing closed-cell foam padding, and tough,water-resistant outer fabric protects contents from moisture and sudden impacts.
The patented All Weather Cover offers maximum protection from extreme weather conditions, dust and sand.
A quick-access hide-away Tripod Mount, SlipLock attachment loops and a number of laminated and zippered organizer pockets provide photographers with fast, easy access to equipment.
Rounding out our list is the 'Cameras Gear Storage Organizer Set', while this isn't exactly a 'bag' (in the truest definition) we found it an incredibly useful travel and storage accessory for on-the-go photographers.
It's 100% waterproof & shockproof, perfectly designed for DSLR and photography accessories like lenses, iPad, Laptop, Power cables and more. Each organizer comes with velcro dividers making it super easy to configure the inside compartments however one desires.
A great camera bag for travel (and on-the-go) photographers will be defined by several features that will make or (literally) break your equipment (ouch). Photographers must consider aspects like material, size/weight, capacity, discreteness, security, and comfort in order to choose the right camera bag.
While not exhaustive the above list lays out several options for photographers who travel, shoot on the go or are just looking to carry some gear with them.

What Happy Photographers Are Saying:from 244 reviews
Works perfectly on my D750, very satisfied.
Love the protectors!! Plenty of protection and offer a great clip to carry on your side for easy accessibility. I just wish perhaps they were slightly wider for my lens hood to remain on my Large lenses. Would order again!
Fast service, item was even better than expected. Now both my camera and flash are smarter than I am.
Love the ring light
I like the way it attaches to the bottom of the camera. Very secure. I have large hands and a battery pack on my cameras, so a little more strap would have been nice. I anm still waiting for my double harness, to fully test these out. There was delays in shipping my harness. Which was ordered with the hand straps.
Top class Product thanks :)
Delivered the next day . Good job!!!
Plenty of room very comfortable on my back
Works great for my camera!
Love it, everything fits on it!
The tripod is light as we all expect carbon fiber to be. It is also versatile in that it can be used as a monopod as well. It is easy to set up and take down. I found a way to attach it to my camera bag which expects something smaller. I’m happy with the way it performs with all of my cameras. I’m taking it to Europe in June.
Yes I received it and love it will be ordering more through the year!
Just bought that TRIPOD! OMG it's awesome. No it's not a $900 behemoth Manfrotto, but it's perfect my needs. Lightweight, high quality, versatile, affordable, professional and fully capable! Thank you Camera Gear Store!!!! Highly recommended product and store.
Super compact and sturdy. Nice unit for the price. Going on safari in March. Thanks.
Nice easy design to use, stores compactly in a 10" circle.
I LOVE MY MULTI CAMERA CARRIER VEST!!!
I suffer from extreme neck pain and carrying 2 cameras when hiking only makes it worse. (I photogragh wildlife)
Now with my new vest...the strain is taken off the neck. yet keeps my cameras at hand when I need them.
I would recommend this for anyone that needs thier cameras at the ready while in the field.
It's an excellent len. I have other wide angles for another camera. Paid more for those and this one outshines them all. I enjoy comparing photo equipment. Good price good and great lens.
Prompt delivery, Very easy to assemble and disassemble, was steady. I used it to hold a plastic backdrop. Very happy!
Purchased this Z adapter for bettering angles while filming & also for time lapse photography. WoW! The angles you can achieve with this (with or without a tripod) are limitless........Just don't forget to weight it down when using it without a tripod. LOVE IT!!
I am having a great time with them and the delivery of them was fantastic and I watched it progress on my post app, thank you again for your fantastic product!
The filters were just remarkable...the special effects I could ahieve with it ....were out of this world...good one guys...
Lots of room for everything. Very comfortable to wear on my back.
Just got my backdrop! LOVE IT! Thank you guys
Easy to put on...very comfortable and saves a lot of pain from around the neck.....
The one thing that really stood out...is how light the bakpack was..so that when all of my gear went in..it was so comfortable and light on my back
Love the speed at which this time lapse adapter moves. No jerking and no hesitation. Truely amazing phoyos with it
Super product a definite need for any photographer
It is the best.
I bought the speedlight for my husband...he was so thrilled with it and has been using it ever since..
Awesome light set, works great
Perfect for all my needs. Sturdy and versatile!
Keeps all my cords organized and everything in one place. I love it!
Super lens, to be recommended to anyone who loves taking great pictures.
This is a wonderful product, very well made and just what I wanted. Can't wait to use it!
Wonderful product very well-designed extremely handy and versatile highly recommend to anybody working with cameras
This cloth backdrop works great. The fact it has the sewn loop at the top so you can slide your framing pole through is an extra added plus. It allows you to slide the backdrop off to the side when not needed. I'd recommend it. And oh yeah, the price is perfect.
Works great on small item on table top or large item using tripod l love it. Make great gift for amateur or professional photographer.
I love my new z-tripod adapter. It gives me the ability to catch everything at different angles. I recommend this to any photographer who loves variety. Thank you.
I put this vest through its paces at a large event & my back & shoulders are thanking me for it! It would have been nice to have metal fixings rather than plastic for durability but overall I'm pleased with it.
