Baby’s got a brand new bag

February 20, 2007 4 By archshrk

It’s more of a backpack than a bag but I don’t want the facts to get in the way of my musical omage.

Canon Backpack

So with the recent addition of a 50mm Prime lens and a 70-300mm zoom lens, the old camera bag wasn’t going to cut it anymore. It just wasn’t quite big enough. So I picked up this little beauty online at half the price of the local photography stores and I even purchased a second battery for the Canon Rebel XT.

A nicely apportioned backpack with Canon’s recognizable black and olive color scheme, this backpack comfortably holds the gear needed for a daytrip hike (like those found in Kaua’i). Constructed of waterproofed polyester and nylon, it is finished with a crosswoven fabric to ensure years of practical use.

The Canon Deluxe Backpack holds up to 2 camera bodies, 4 lenses, plus accessories. Along with its lightweight construction, it features a well-arranged divider system for secure storage and easy access and is equiped with padded shoulder straps and back padding. Add to this the tripod carrying straps and a front webbing ideal for holding a light jacket or sweater.

After seeing it in person for twice the price at our local photography stores, we ordered it online. We also picked up a second Rechargeable Battery for our Digital Rebel XT. This way, we wouldn’t have to worry about running out of power while in the field. In that same spirit, we added a 2GB Compact Flash memory card to our kit. This allows us to shoot all day without having to download images or reduce image size.
