I'll give you one guess at the #1 question we get here at SHOOTSAC™ Headquarters when we introduce our amazing lens bag to someone new...
"This is great, can I put my camera in it?"
For the past three years we have dutifully answered, "The SHOOTSAC™ Lens Bag is designed to hold your lenses WHILE you shoot. You can use any camera bag you want to store and transport your gear, and then you use your SHOOTSAC™ as a lens bag while you work"
And for the most part, even though you seem a bit disappointed, we know you get it. A lens bag is a completely different animal than a camera bag.
We have to admit, you certainly did get US thinking...
What is with the shape of most camera bags anyway? Doesn't it seem like it would be better to call them camera lockers or camera vaults? Why are they sort of universally boxy, ugly, and uncomfortable to carry? And is it just me, or do most of them actually make it TOUGH to shoot--the very thing they are supposed to help?!
I may be taking a leap here, but I have to assume that ya'll are a lot like me...when I carry my camera around, I intend to SHOOT with it! Otherwise, it's sort of like dragging a bowling ball around just for giggles.
So why then do so called "camera bags" seem to make the most OBVIOUS stuff nearly impossible to do?!
(if so, check back tomorrow for part 2 of our series "On the Anatomy of a Camera Bag", and see how things REALLY get interesting when a pro shooter goes on vacation...)
