Shoulder Bag or Message Bag

  • Advantage of shoulder bag
    • Gear right at hand level compared to backpack or sling bag
    • let carrying a bed for your long lens sleeping horizontally inside to avoid lens tip landing on ground.
    • your back can get a breeze of air compared to backpack
    • can give you a lot of loading slots when put on ground.
  • Disadvantage
    • Shoulder can swing around your shoulder, and can slide in to front if you bend your body forward, causing a big motion of gear bag hitting forward or hitting ground if strap is long and you are bending low
  • Example:
    • Lowepro Nova series (retangular base shape) and stealth report series (D base shape)
    • camera + 150-600mm = around 40cm long
    • camera + 500mm f4 = around 50cm long
    • camera + 600mm,800mm prime = around 60cm long
