The perfect bag !!!

Recommended Posts

After testing dozens of bags and backpacks from all the major brands, I can say that I have found the perfect messenger bag for my photographic equipment. It's black, discreet, doesn't look like a photography bag, is lightweight, has a rear opening and a magnetic opening and closing system, which is secure and quiet. It fits my XT4 with the Tamron 17-70mm with the lens hood on, plus the 50-140mm or 70-300 and there is still room for another lens/flash.
I'm sure it's the perfect bag!!!!

I'm talking about the Think Tank SpeedTop 15.

I too found the perfect bag just today after 40+ years of photography and possibly 20+ bags. 

Tenba Axis 16L. I can  hold my 3Legged Thing tripod on the back on molle in the center or inside and still have room for an X-T5 and 3 lenses. Narrow, swings around  like a Lowepro Flipside so not putting it on the ground to swap lenses (I'm a Prime shooter and that's crucial) Looks cool too (multi-cam black)  Happy as a clam.

Still looking for perfection.

Realistically, it takes the formula  N+1  for so called perfection as if you are like me, you rarely take all your gear on a shoot and find certain bags for 1, 2, 3 or more lenses thus having multiple bags. My perfection post was related to a maximum sized bag. I currently have 4 bags and they all serve different purposes.

    • Not all red filters are the same, there will be a difference, if only a slight one depending on which red filter you are thinking about. Remember these are simulations, so the camera (or raw converter) will always apply the same processing to the image, but the filter is slightly different, even each time you put it on the lens, screwing it on just a little differently each time which will affect how the light is passed to or blocked from the sensor. But it will be close. If you want some fun, find a Pentax K1000 film body ~ $200 or so on the used market, a roll or two of Fujifilm Neopan 100 Acros II film ~ $15 or so a roll and some red filters ~ usually less than $50, some much less than $50, and try it. (All prices are in U.S. dollars.) note: color filters do get used on dslrs and mirrorless cameras but their use is usually limited to specialized settings or experiments because image processing tools can duplicate the view easily. 
    • I am curious to know if there is a difference between shooting the Fujifilm Film simulation Acros+R and Acros+Std with a Red filter on the lens. I don't have a red filter for  my lens otherwise I would do a test myself. Thank you for any information you can share.  
    • X100s: cannot get OVF. The switch on the front of the camera does nothing, yet it is supposed to allow switching from EVF to OVF and visa versa. This is the second X100s I've bought with the same problem. Advice please

    • Jerryy - I think that issue is different. I've taken a lot of time looking into the subject detection problems related to that bug and its always the case that the camera focuses on something different - it doesn't create a completely blurred image like the most recent image from the OP
