After receiving my new Panasonic Lumix G5 last week I found myself in quite a dilemma. I did not have a bag that fit it. The current LowePro Edit 110 I was using for my GF3 was not big enough, and my other bags were too big.
Watch as I continue my migration to mirrorless and attempt to find the best camera shoulder bag for the Micro Four Thirds compact camera system. I have started the Micro Four Thirds Shoulder Bag Challenge where I must meet 4 requirements for the perfect bag.
1. It must be locally available.
– I can only find bags which can be bought at a local store like Frys, BestBuy, and Target.
2. It must be within a budget of $50.
– Price is still a big concern and I’ve limited myself to only $50 to spend on a bag.
3. It must be able to fit a Panasonic Lumix G5 with 1 lens attached and 2 additional lenses.
4. It must have some extra storage.
– I must find a bag which can hold in addition to my camera, a wallet, cell phone, passport, iPad SD Card Reader, Square Credit Card Reader, Business Cards, and a few accessories.
Due to these new mirrorless cameras having such a small size advantage, the normal camera bags out on the market are usually too big or too small for a compact camera system. I have reviewed 6 different camera shoulder bags in this challenge, The Lowepro Edit 110, LowePro Edit 130, Lowepro Adventura 140, Manfrotto Bella VI, Golla Generation Mobile dSLR + Tablet, and The Lowepro Event Messenger 100.
Find out which bag I have chosen as the perfect Micro Four Thirds bag for me!
