alright so i feel as if i need a backpack for my camera. when im going through cities i feel awkward just having my camera around my neck walking around. feels like im trying to say " ya i got a camera bitch. what up?" so anyone have any suggestions on backpacks? i have a nikon d40x. if you dont feel like a backpack is the right way to go, how do you get around with your camera?

Keeping your camera in a backpack means missing shots. I usually have a backpack with me when i shoot, but that's because I'm usually biking to a location, and sometimes I end up climbing things to get a shot. If I'm just walking around I always have my camera over my shoulder so I can get a shot if I see one.

you make a good point about missing pictures. but i get so paranoid when im in big crowds with a camera around my neck. i feel like someones gonna snatch it or break it or something. maybe its something that i have to get used to.

Ah yeah, that's understandable. I've kind of gotten into the habit of clutching my camera when I'm in crowds. I've never had a problem...

Back pack for just a camera alone? Do you have more than 1 lens depending on the backpack you'll have alot of extra space. Which isn't a big thing but If you're looking for something like a backpack with easy acess I would recommend a LOWEPRO Sling Shot 100. Google it my post count isn't high enough for me to post links/ pics just yet but definately a bag I would recommend getting.

In my opinion Crumpler bags are the dopest. They have a lot of protection, don't even look like a camera bag, and look great. Not enough posts, but google them. I have 3 different bags and I think they're dope. Their older bags are a lot nicer and you can probably get them cheap at your local camera shop.

no backpack,you need something that hangs in the front of you. you can find good ones at your camera shops...or get a filson to stunt

^ a filson wouldnt have any padding tho, so not really useful for this particular application unless you buy a camera block that may or may not fit it.

Otherwise if you want to be more discrete domke's are pretty stealth (and pricey)

for a backpack when i'm carrying alot of stuff I use my Burton Zoom Pack. Its a pretty sturdy pack, and doesnt really look like a camera bag at first glance.

I recently bought a Billingham... Pricey, but it's a perfect size bag in my opinion and doesn't really look like a typical camera bag at all:

I used a simple black AE bag. It's discrete and doesn't stick out like normal camera bags.

idk, i wouldnt put an slr in my backpack personally. A camera case made for SLR's is going to protect it much better, even if it does stick out alot. Wouldnt want a cam in my backpack on the subway, or even in large crowds, Too many people bumping into you, as well as thieves.

Check out the Lowepro Flipside X00. I've got the 200 model, and I love it. Slim profile and it opens from the side closest to your back so thieves can't open it when you're in a crowded place. It also has a waist strap that lets you slide the backpack to your front so you can access your gear much more easily.

Is a HP or a Visvim backpack worth the money?
