Bag Exposure: The Search for the Perfect Camera Bag

We're avid hikers who love taking photographs during our outdoor journeys (in fact, we're heading out to hike across the desert this weekend in hopes of tracking down chuckwallas). We normally bring the compact Canon S90, but sometimes long for the performances of our full size D90, especially for macro photography. We realize if we had a backpack specifically designed for hauling both our photography gear and for our hiker's gear, we'd be more apt to bring the larger DSLR. We discovered a resource that has helped us in the search for the perfect camera bag...

Bag Exposure is a site dedicated to the latest in photography carrying cases, bags and backpack options. It looks like they've only a short while ago, but the curated selection is excellent, and from amongst the listings currently available we were able to discover a few strong candidates for our next day hiker-photographer's backpack.

The F-Stop Loka looks like an affordable solution balancing the hiker's needs with the necessities of hauling photography gear for those perfect outdoor shots (we definitely wanted a hydration pack section and a waterproof exterior). The $249 price tag is also very appealing to our our wallet. We're also tempted to take a step up to the Clik Elite pack, which offers more room and a quick access "cradle zone" on the side which would come in handy when you need to whip out the camera for those fleeting moments. Choice, choices...

Check out more photography camera bags at Bag Exposure and feel free to chime in with any recommendations about photography bags and backpacks for those who enjoy journeying off the beaten path.
