Q&A 500 – Which Camera Bag Should I Choose?

It never ceases to amaze me how many avid photographers are prepared to spend hundreds or even thousands on their camera gear (because they know specific kit will give them the desired results), only to scrimp on the protection of those precious items.

This is a question I was asked, in a roundabout way, on Twitter recently. The actual question was whether I, personally, calibrate my various items of kit. Well I have to say, the truth of the matter is that I’ve never calibrated any of my lenses, nor my cameras’ autofocus – simply because I haven’t […]
