I am not a pro nor am I looking for something to travel with. Mainly, I take some photo equipment to a local park where I volunteer. I generally go with a bag that has a shoulder strap, containing a D700, a couple of lenses (the largest of which is the 180mm f/2.8), possibly a flash and some camera brackets for doing panoramas. The tripod, if taken, is carried separately.

Once I am at the location, I'll typically carry the camera with its strap over one shoulder and the camera bag over another (or possibly across my neck with the bag resting on my back). In any case, I am finding it a bit burdensome when a lot of walking is done.

So I started looking into rolling camera cases/bags but I am wondering if they are a good solution for the following reasons: they themselves weigh about 10 pounds and although they are not carried they still need to be pulled along (inertia, you know) and, they seem to have rather small wheels that won't be useful for occasionally wandering off the pavement.

I'd appreciate any suggestions/advice re. rolling carts vs. maybe a backpack type of bag.

Thanks.

Barry
