Camera Bag Requirement

In order to utilize and protect the camera equipment available for qualified RCC Photo students, there is a camera bag requirement.

The bag must be large enough to safely contain and carry a medium format camera. This results in having the minimal interior dimensions of 12″ x 9″ x 6″. The bag must be fully padded, have a sturdy handle or strap system and have space enough for a light meter and film to ride along.

There are many bags on the market from which to choose. A good strategy is to consider getting a quality bag that will last for many years and will adapt, by way of moveable internal dividers, to other camera gear as you progress through the program.
