I would recommend that you invest in camera cases. Without the aid of camera cases, you will miss a few great photographic moments. To that end, camera cases for your camera and all its accompanying paraphernalia is something that you should really think about getting. It will help you immensely if you travel or take many landscape shots.
Then again, even if you are an armchair photographer and never leave your home, keeping everything that you need at hand all the time is still a good idea. And the best way for you to do that is if you have some sort of camera cases for you to be able to store at least the camera in.
That said, you should then look at what type of camera cases you want or might possibly need. For instance if you’re going trekking in the jungle you might want to keep your load as light as possible and take along only what you consider very essential. I realize that’s a difficult thing to ask of any photographer, after all, who knows my fisheye lens might finally come in handy!
But I can guarantee you that, after a few hours with an overly loaded backpack, or a handful camera cases for you to lug around over uncertain and rough terrain, you’ll be heartily tired of your camera, the equipment, and yourself for being so foolhardy as to bring along everything but the kitchen sink.
And all though you might wish that you could just throw it all in the nearest convenient river and be done with the lot, obviously you’re not going to, so you’re going to be stuck with lugging everything back to civilization as well. Then again, it has to be said that camera cases will all come out to be fully worth it when you get to take those stunning pictures that you dreamed of.
But back to what I was trying to get at before we went down that particular road – camera cases and which type you will need.
You could of course go with your most basic camera cases, the small one that will only take your camera, spare batteries, and an extra lens. Or you could go even more basic and just get camera cases. Then again you always have the option of going for something a little more spacious and opting for a bag that will carry all of your essential items.
The keyword here, being essential items. Remember, this shouldn’t necessarily mean everything but the kitchen sink. You also have the option of getting camera cases that are water proof. If you’re more into landscape or outdoor photography, then this is probably the best option for you.
