Find the Perfect Camera Bag During the Samy’s Camera TAMRAC Flash Sale

Since the coronavirus outbreak, the U.S. job market has taken a hit. As reported by CNBC in June, “the number of employed people as a percentage of the U.S. adult population — plunged to 52.8% in May, meaning 47.2% of Americans are jobless.” With many furloughed, laid off, or with many seeing a considerable reduction in work hours, entrepreneurship is on the rise. Having a side gig is becoming increasingly common; and, some have even started small online businesses since safer at home orders have been in effect. 

With any new or ongoing business venture, two things are required: time and money. As one can imagine, this presents a bit of a challenge since we are all trying to make ends meet. As a result, creativepreneurs are on the lookout for deals, especially when it comes to photo and video gear. From camera bodies to lenses to memory cards to cables, photography and video purchases can quickly add up. And, it’s wise to protect those investments. 

Along with a warranty and insurance, a good camera bag is a must. Thankfully, TAMRAC is in the business of producing reliable and versatile camera bags. And, thanks to our current TAMRAC flash sale, now is the perfect time to get a top-of-the-line camera bag for less.

Here’s how to find the perfect TAMRAC camera bag in 4 steps:

Step One: Price Point

Let’s talk about setting a budget. 

There are hundreds of camera bags on the market today. Value bags can do in a pinch; but, they often don’t stand the test of time. And, there are “designer bags” that may turn heads; but, they lack practicality and are often outrageously overpriced. If you ever wanted to know what a $2000 camera bag looks like, look no further than this Louis Vuitton New Wave Camera Bag.

When it comes to protective solutions, bags, pouches, straps, and backpacks, aspiring and professional photographers and videographers alike are sure to put them to the test. As one examines the cost of these accessories, there are a number of factors to consider including size, water resistance, quality of materials, number of compartments, and comfortability. The final cost will boil down to what one can live with or can’t live without. 

Once a price point is set, it’s time to examine one’s current gear setup.

Step Two: Gear Inventory

Photographers and videographers often have to bring their creative offices with them. That means a limited amount of space has to accommodate everything required to get the job done. 

Before browsing bags, first, take a gear inventory and ask oneself the following questions:

  • What type of photography am I doing?
  • How much gear is necessary to pack?
  • How much gear do you prefer to carry?
  • How do you prefer to carry your gear?
  • Will you need room for a laptop, travel tripod, hard drives, and cables?
  • Are aesthetics important?

Once this is done, one is ready to start browsing. But there are so many bags on the market. Where does one begin? Thankfully, we at Samy’s Camera have made steps three and four a breeze.

Step Three: Why TAMRAC?

TAMRAC is one of the most recognizable and trusted accessory brands within the photography sector.
