Professional photographers are very careful how they store all their expensive photographic equipment. Although you may not be a professional photographer, you may be struggling to decide how you are going to store whatever equipment you have. Many of us have more than one camera and are not sure how to keep them safe.
Before you invest a lot of money into a camera bag, it is important that you take stock of what equipment you own and think about what purpose your bag will serve. If you are like me, you own a small point and shoot camera, and a larger DSLR camera with some additional lenses. I tend to carry my cameras with me when I go on holiday and to family members’ houses on special occasions like Christmas or birthdays. For this reason, I have never invested in a large camera bag to carry all my equipment as I don’t go on professional shoots and when I do travel with my camera I try to keep what I take to a minimum. I like to put my camera in my carry-on bag to keep it safe, so I don’t like to carry too much equipment. I own a small camcorder that I sometimes take with me also, but I have never had the need to invest in a camera bag that holds all my cameras and equipment at once because I usually take only one camera with me at a time. There are some occasions when I want to take video as well as stills and in this case, I will take my camcorder as well as my small point and shoot camera to avoid being overloaded with heavy cameras.
In my home, I store all my equipment together on a shelf in my closet.
