How many camera bags do you have?

Simple question really.
As we all know, one cannot have too many camera bags with a differeint one required for each purpose.
I have the following (smallest first):

Tamrac Velocity 5X (small waist pack)
Lowepro Topload Zoom AW (waist/shoulder pack)
Lowepro Inverse 200AW (bit bigger waist pack)
Billingham Hadley (smallish shoulder bag)
Kata 3in1 20 (medium back/swing pack)
Lowepro Nova 5 (medium/large shoulder bag but used for storage)

I hadn't realised that I had so many (and I have sold at least three in recent years)

What about you?????

Re: How many camera bags do you have?

Just three for me;

Olympus Pro Backpack - original Oly back pack. Big, sturdy and strong.
Case Logic - medium double shoulder backpack. Strong but only room for E-3+battery pack, 7-14, plus two/three more lenses & accessories.
Olympus travel bag (for one camera+lens [no room for a battery pack] and one lens) - the original 4/3 twin lens kit bag.

I have used the pro-backpack to death, and so this weekend I'm trying out the Case Logic bag. If this is not good enough, I'll possibly be looking for a new one.

Re: How many camera bags do you have?

This is a constant source of discussion between the wife and me. I accuse her of having too many pairs of shoes then she throws back how many camera bags I have.

Aah, but at least with camera bags you usually only have one of each. With shoes you have two of each!

It is not the number of shoes that my wife has but the number of pairs of jeans. I can confidently say that I have less camera bags!

Re: How many camera bags do you have?

Oh dear. Suddenly I have bag envy. I have only two bags. The freebie that came with my Nikon F50 and my Lowepro AW160.

The Lowepro is only slightly smaller than the Nikon bag.

The Nikon bag is too big. The Lowepro is too small.

So: Most of the time I use jacket pockets.

Far too many but still searching for the perfect bag! Have become quite a fan od the Lowepro Terraclime series (very good price on Amazon) and perfect for my E-P1

Re: How many camera bags do you have?

Never mind the camera bags - how many lens bags do you have? I seem to have dozens of the useless things. they range from prewar leather cylinders lined with velvet to very basic mesh fabric with draw string.

It's odd, because I always try to include a bag when I sell a lens and I don't have that many lenses - well - OK I do have too many lenses but I'm sure I have a lot more lens bags.

Perhaps they breed in the dark recesses of my camera cupboard?

Re: How many camera bags do you have?

I have a Hama Camera / lens carry pouch, a Lowepro Slingshot 1 that is completely useless to me now and a Tamrac Adventure 9 backpack that fits everything in except the 90-250 which I carry in the Oly case that came with it.

LowePro Mini Trekker AW for everything (but I don't take it out because it is too big)

Tamrac Adventure Messenger 4 shoulder bag for planned trips - fits an E3 + lens + plus accessory (FL50R, another lens, E520 + small lens); plus some bits

LowePro Rezo something - fits E520 + a short lens + spare round filter & lens wipes

All are perfect and it has taken a while to learn how to use them. When shooting birds at the WWT I just whack the E3 + 50-200 over my shoulder and tie it (with a spare shoelace) so it doesn't slip round when I am travelling on my bike.

Re: How many camera bags do you have?

I tried to comment last time the Mrs bought a handbag and she made me count

I can see 6 camera bags & camera rucksacks from here + 3 CC pouches and 4 Lowe pro pouches as well

The thing is I do actually use them all depending on what kit I'm talking and where I'm going.

Oh! ... I forgot the pelibox and ex-army ammunition box I take things caving in - if you count those I'm up 2 more

Regards
Andy
