In many parts of the world, it's possible
to take excellent landscape pictures without moving more than a few
yards from a road, and in these areas, packing and carrying equipment
isn't really a problem. Often, though, you'll find that roads act as a
magnet for intrusions such as telegraph poles, litter, people, and of
course vehicles. If you don't want these in your pictures, you'll need
to carry equipment some distance.
The only practical way to do this is on
your shoulders - preferably both of them. Ordinary soft camera bags are
fine for short distances, but most have a single shoulder strap that
puts the weight on just one side. Backpacks would be better as it
distributes the weight more evenly. It wasn't that easily available
last time as there wasn't many that is suitable for cameras previously,
some photographers even create a hybrid form by attaching a regular
soft camera bag to a backpack frame. Nowadays, there is all sorts of
camera backpacks available. It comes with different sizes and special
protection such as weatherproof materials.
Choose camera backpacks according to your
need. Choose a small backpacks if you always travel light and does not
have a lot of accessories. Choosing large backpacks and you will have a
tendency of fully loads the whole bags with unnecessary things and you
might burden yourself. Remember to pay as much attention to your own
safety as to that of the camera.
