January is a great time of year to clean out closets, review upcoming expenses, and even tackle that messy garage. But what about your camera gear? Over time we tend to collect lenses and other accessories. How are you storing them? On shelves where they’re exposed to dust? In various camera bags? Desk drawers?
One of the best systems for protecting your equipment in an organized manner is with a roller bag. You can create compartments for each item, with everything clearly visible when you open the bag.
When it’s time to go on a shoot, you can select the pieces you need and put them in your favorite backpack or shoulder sling. And if it’s a big assignment, just take the entire roller with you. If you review the options on the Lowepro Pro Roller x-Series page, you’ll see that there are a variety of sizes to accommodate the amount of equipment you use.
Rollers are easy to store. They don’t take up much room, even in the tightest quarters. Yet, you have bodies, lenses, flashes, and other accessories readily available… and protected. While you’re organizing the rest of your life in this New Year, consider treating yourself to a sturdy, efficient, and handsome roller bag. What a great way to start 2012.
