Are you often using a camera backpack that isn’t suited to the shoot? When buying a camera bag it’s tempting to go for one that fits all of your photography gear, but that usually means a big, heavy backpack that’s overkill. Cue the ProTactic BP 350 AW II (£209.95/$217.75), a modular system from Lowepro that can take a DSLR, lenses and even a drone as standard, and offers clip-on accessories for all kinds of other gear.

Choosing the best camera bag isn't easy, and if you need more long-distance comfort and capacity than you can get from even the best shoulder bags, sling bags or messenger bags, then a camera backpack is the obvious choice.
