On the "Lumix: Shoot Anything" tour that I just completed with Giulio Sciorio, we had the pleasure of being sponsored by some pretty great companies in the form of give-aways for the tour and hardware to support our own adventure. Check out this behind the scenes video showing just what goes into one of these things. Sort of.
Finding a big bag for small mirrorless cameras is a challenge. Most mirrorless bags are built on the assumption that you only want to carry a body and a couple of lenses, and maybe an iPad. Most big bags are designed for dSLR gear, meaning the lens holes are way too big and way too deep to safely accommodate the small mirrorless gear. In this article I'll talk about the ThinkTank StreetWalker HardDrive, which is a great (big) bag that leans towards smaller for the mirrorless set, but isn't exactly right. However, ThinkThank just announced the new Perception line, which may well be the perfect new bag. I've attached the press release on that at the end of this piece.
