I chose the Lowepro Urban Reporter 350 for a recent trip to NYC to shoot some images for my client, The Bronx Brewery. Because our schedule also allowed downtime, I knew I wanted to walk around the city to shoot some personal images and carry a bag that was still fashionable and that did not say, “Look, it’s a photographer with $10k worth of camera equipment.” The canvas-type material held off the snowfall pretty well too. With the outside front pouch, the zippers don’t go all the way down which helps prevent items from falling out when reaching in while the bag is still on your shoulder. Great for on-the-move type photography.
When you need to bring just the essentials and have a camera bag that’s still fashionable, the Urban Reporter is the one.
