We all buy camera bags to carry our photographic equipment, but did you know they can also be used for other applications. Photography writer Matty Graham explains five ways you can use your Naneu bag for something other than holding cameras.
Ballast support - Picture the scene: you’re up at the crack of dawn, in the wilderness of the great outdoors to capture a perfect sunrise. There’s one problem – a strong wind is blowing and even though your camera is on a tripod, the blustery gale will move the camera enough to cause shake and blur in your image. The solution? Use your camera bag as ballast and hang it on the tripod (preferably from the centre column) to weigh it down. The ballast will keep the tripod steady and help to eliminate blur from your images.
Looking to buy your first camera bag or upgrade to a larger version? Photography writer Matty Graham delivers a six-point plan to help make sure you buy the bag that is right for your photography needs.
1) Work out your budget and then be pleasantly surprised!
You will be amazed at how modern camera bags, especially the Naneu range, offer fantastic value for money. When working out your budget, you may want to decide whether you are looking for an enthusiast-level bag or a professional-spec backpack or shoulder bag. Pro-level bags usually start from around $200 and typically come with more features.
Looking after your camera bags is important. After all, behind the zips and Velcro lies your equipment and for some of us, the lenses and cameras are the tools of our trade and are essential in putting food on the table for our families.
