    Recommend me a bag for home storage please

    Hi All,

    I currently have a Crumpler 3 Million that I use with my camera when I’m out and about but have a range of gear at home that’s all over the place. Looking for recommendations on a not so expensive bag that could hold a 60D with single kit lens, nifty fifty lens, 100mm L macro lens and a future flash purchase which will be the MT-24EX. The bag will rarely leave the house, it’s more for keeping it all together neatly at home. Oh and there is a good chance I’ll get another lens at some stage.

    thank you in advance,
    NoGi

    This is always a good question I had similar problems, I ended up making a box with a take off lid held in place using a $2.00 latch from Bunnings. I went to Clark Rubber to get some foam matting and I created spots for each piece of equipment. It keeps everything together and the wife has stopped complaining so it wins both ways

    Kind Regards
    Livio

    I could be wrong but current thinking says that you shouldn't store your gear in dark places for long periods. It encourages mould and mildew that are deadly to photographic gear. As long as you can keep them relatively dust free, the idea might be a glass-fronted cabinet or bookcase - let's light in, and helps to minimise dust. See "Why lenses get fungus" for some storage advice.

    If you live up in Queensland and the humidity is pretty high, perhaps. If you live in Melbourne, perhaps not.

    Interesting ideas guys. I have a 2 and 4 yr old that venture into the study at times so I am looking more for a bag type case that is easily portable if required.

    Hi, yep fungi are still around. I keep all my gear in a biggish plastic box, with a silica gel pack that turns orange when it needs drying. Seems to be working...and it keeps everything together.
