Photographers Pack

My son is into photography. Is there a backpack out there geared toward the picture and film buffs?

    There are lots of them. Do an E-Bay search for "Camera Backpack". They run from $50 up. I use my small hunting pack most the time. dgarrett

    I've kind of done that. Phrasing the question differently. I'm looking at packs that someone taking pictures professionally in the backcountry might use. A day pack won't work. What will protect the equipment, and carry your tent, bag, etc. The Contrejour 40 is one that looks like its good for the cameras, but it doesn't look like it would carry much else.

    You might look at a smallest sized hard case that fits your camera that you could strap to your regular pack. I don't know how much camera gear you are talking about???? But it really needs to be where you can lay your hands on it all the time. Many great pics are lost trying to get camera out. I have never found the perfect way to backpack my camera gear. It is either in my hand or around my neck or I figure I might as well not take it. A hard case is the best safest way to transport you camera gear....dgarrett

    Im not sure how much equipment he's got, but it does seem to multiply. LOL. It fills a reasonably good size duffle bag. I did see a nice looking shoulder harness for keeping one handy. Thanks.

    Years ago I used several packs by LowePro that were specifically designed for photography use. They had lots of compartments, padding and straps to secure the gear. There is a nearly new one in my closet I would consider selling. "Nearly new" as in used in the field once before I put the cameras down. If you would like, I'll get it out and take a few pics tonight and PM or post.
