If you are starting up photography or are looking to upgrade your optics arsenal, you will evidently need to carry around multiple lenses and accessories. To keep them safe, you need to have a backpack that is sturdy and has multiple compartments. However, the backpack you choose should serve multiple needs apart from just letting you carry your camera gear. It should have enough compartments and pockets to let you carry your other accessories, tablet, and possibly a laptop as well so that you can edit on the go. You should also prioritise waterproof bags if possible. Keeping such things in mind, here are four camera backpacks that you should check out.
