Sup /fa/

So I'm an amateur photographer who has been shooting for a long time, but I've never been able to get a bag to match outfits and all that. Do any of you have something to recommend? I don't really feel comfortable walking around with the camera just hanging from my shoulder, it feels like this makes it more likely that someone will grab it and run.

DSLR's are not /fa/ get a Leica and carry it in your hand without using the strap.

With time it will wear and become a part of you.

thinking of buying a Voigtländer Bessa R soon, but don't have the money yet. I know I need to be able to carry my DSLR around though, so I need some way to have it convenient enough to be able to be comfortable when carrying it but /fa/ enough to actually use it

Just get a Leica, dslr is tourist core.

I can't afford a real Leica, simple as that, it's just not reasonable for me to spend that much money on a camera when I'm just going to use it for hobby purposes

also, analog is hugely limiting when it comes to actually learning to shoot, film is expensive, editing just falls short. I'm going to get an analog camera because it's fun, but it's nowhere near as flexible as a DSLR is.

Now, about that bag

that wasn't a real reply, that guy is obviously a stupid troll. the actual modern counterpart to something like a leica would be a mirrorless camera.

about that bag.. you shouldn't be overly preoccupied with how it looks. its a utility bag and if you actually begin to take photography seriously you will wish you had a proper bag. something you said caught my eye
>I don't really feel comfortable walking around with the camera just hanging from my shoulder, it feels like this makes it more likely that someone will grab it and run.
how on earth would this happen? do you have your camera around one shoulder? because that makes zero sense. you should have it around your neck, or across your body.

if you get a bag, get a black camera bag that is sized appropriately (small enough to be light but not too small to be useful). appearance should take a backseat to utility. quick bag access and proper camera protection should be high points. a black camera bag goes with any outfit. people tend to think "oh that guy has a camera" rather than "that camera bag doesnt go with that outfit" because surprisingly.. most people don't buy camera bags with regard to how well they're gonna match with their outfits. the bag doesn't add or detract to your fits.. its just there

i personally try to go no bag whenever possible. nikon fe2 + 50mm f/1.4 master race

dslr's are for work get a 35mm film camera if you feel the need of having a camera with you.

basically
>>9465181
is right

if you're not familiar with shooting film or not comfortable doing so,
i'd even say get a small (but nice) point and shoot like a Ricoh GRIV; which can still shoot RAW and will document any adventures almost as well as your DSLR will without being a bulky attachment.

if you wanna spend some real dough pick up a Leica M240


tl;dr you wont find a /fa/ DSLR case cuz they're bulky and not really meant for street shooting
