| p.1 #2 · Camera bag recommendation - Retrospective 10 or Other? |
I've had the retro 10 for over a year now, and i will say its one of the best bags i've ever bought. It will definitely accommodate your gear well, with room to spare. I bought it to hold my d90 with a 70-200 vri attached, and it did its job fine. Theres also many other areas in which you can put items into quickly.
The only downside i have with this messenger style bag is that it places a lot of tension on one shoulder like all messenger bags. I've had the bag on my shoulder throughout an entire wedding once, and it was quite a relief afterwards to take it off. People have bragged about how comfortable the pad is, but i find it a little on the stiff side. I bought this bag to hold my gear, and be able to shoot out of it quickly. I've also considered the urban disguise series, but i didn't like how some of the pockets were placed, and how the strap was. I did consider it for the laptop compartment, but i rarely use my laptop to edit photos anyways.
If you decided to buy the retro 10, i would try to find one instores first to see if it fits your needs. Its made very well, and im planning on using for a long while, until i lust for another bag.
Side note, i did consider a crumpler bag, but the Thinktank brand sold me on the retro 10.
