Frequently asked questions
- Are Lowepro camera bags waterproof?
The majority of Lowepro camera bags are designed to withstand rain and other extreme weather – many are made with special hydrophobic material. It always varies by individual bag however, so it’s best to double-check the specific bag you’ve got your eye on before you buy it.
- How should I wash a Lowepro bag?
Bags will get dirty as you use them, so it’s good practice to regularly clean them! There’s no need to get too fancy or worry about treating them with special solutions – warm, soapy water will do the job. Just double-check the bag is empty before you start – that includes memory cards!
- Which Lowepro bags are best for long lenses?
It can be hard to find the right bag to carry long lenses like a 200-500mm, whether you’re using NIkon, Canon, Sony or whatever else! To start, we’d recommend having a look at the range of Lowepro pouches and lens cases to see if there’s something specifically designed for your lens.
- How do you organise a Lowepro camera bag?
Most Lowepro camera bags come with customisable interiors, so you can arrange the padding however you like! It’s best to make sure your camera and lenses are separated individually by padding, so they don’t knock into each other in transit. Experiment and see what works!
Types of Lowepro bags
With all the different types of camera bags available, it’s worth learning a little more about each one, to help suss out which is right for you. Here, we take you through the various types of bags that Lowepro manufactures.
Backpacks and sling bags
Backpacks and sling bags are some of the most popular types of camera bags among photographers and videographers alike. Designed to be comfortable and distribute the weight evenly, backpacks are perfect for carrying lots of gear long distances. Backpacks have two straps, whereas sling straps have one – this makes backpacks better for heavier setups, and sling bags better for quick access to gear (as they can be slung around the body). Browse the full range of Lowepro backpacks and sling bags.
Pouches and lens cases
Pouches and lens cases are one of the smallest types of bag, and many are made for a specific model of camera or lens, and are designed to hold that and nothing else. For keeping a slm profile, nothing beats a camera pouch or a lens case – indeed, many are designed to fit snugly inside a larger bag. Browse the full range of Lowepro pouches and lens cases.
Shoulder bags and messengers
Shoulder bags and messenger bags are generally worn cross-body, with a single strap on the shoulder. While this makes them less suited to long-distance walking than a backpack, the advantages include easier and faster access to camera gear, which makes them great for street photographers who want to always be ready to capture the moment. Browse the full range of Lowepro shoulder and messenger bags.
Waist belts are a great solution for those who want a completely hands-free solution for carrying camera gear. The belt configuration means they’re only suitable for lightweight setups, but if you’re using a small mirrorless camera or compact and want a convenient way to carry it, a waist belt is an excellent choice. Browse the full range of Lowepro waist belts.
Hard cases provide the ultimate in protection. They’re not light, nor always especially easy to carry, but they can withstand heavy impacts and keep their contents safe. Lowepro specialises in hard cases that are smaller than average, and well-suited to high-end mirrorless systems and compacts that you want to keep safe. Browse the full range of Lowepro hard cases.
Kind of a hybrid between waist belts and pouches, holster cases allow you to keep your camera at your hip – literally, holster-style. Great for quick access to smaller systems, a holster case allows you to always be quick on the draw. Browse the full range of Lowepro holster cases.
