About Camera Shoulder Bags"Camera shoulder bags" is a generic term referring to bags that hold cameras that are designed to be worn over the shoulder. Sometimes this includes bags that can be worn across the body as well such as camera messenger bags. Camera messenger bags are a great way to carry your camera, accessories, and other gear without having a bag that screams "I'm a camera bag."
The obvious advantage of a shoulder bag is that it can be carried over the shoulder, leaving your hands free. This is especially useful when traveling not only because your hands can be free to hold items like maps and brochures, but also because you can keep the empty bag close by wearing it while you have the camera out to capture that perfect shot.
When shopping for a camera shoulder bag, think about what you'll be carrying including what type of camera you'll be packing inside. Obviously the more equipment you need to carry, the larger the bag and the more pockets and features you'll need. Most larger bags have an interior compartment divided up into areas specific for lenses, the camera, and other accessories. Some bags even have room for a laptop in a separate padded compartment.
