There are now so many quality bags on the market, it's hard to choose. Whether you want customizable organization, extra protection, or the kind of features that help you get that pro-level shot with your DSLR, you can get it. Sure, you still might need some practice on that end, but these 11 bags are a good place to start.
Pro Light Camera Backpack: 3N1-35 PL
This camera carrier works three-fold: carry it on your right shoulder, your left, or as a backpack. It comes equipped with an outer cover to protect from inclement weather when you're on assignment, or if you're just out on an intense photo-walk. And while it's little more than 4 pounds, it still has tons of space, including a side pocket to stash your camera or get to it quicker, spots for your wallet, laptop, and tripod.
