I want something big enough to hold a camera, extra lens (probably a third lens too by the time we leave on our honeymoon), a GoPro camera with a few small accessories, and maybe a few other things. I'm thinking a backpack or satchel style would be best (I have an over-the-shoulder bag and it constantly falls off my shoulder). Any recommendations?
Also any recommendations for a decent third lens? I was thinking maybe either a fisheye or a wide angle. Not looking to break the bank either (sub $250 is ideal). I have a 55/250 and the kit 18/55 right now. (Canon T3)
fish eye lenses have always seemed like kind of a novelty to me. i don't know what the practical use would be. 18mm is already pretty wide, so considering your budget, i wouldn't go down that route. you're probably looking at $400-$500 to get a decent wide angle lens. you can shoot from 18 to 250 as is, which will cover landscape, portrait and superzoom stuff. so if i were you, i would now look into a higher quality lens, albeit a less versatile lens. i'm not familiar with canon, but with a little poking around, this is the one i would probably go with:http://www.adorama.com/CA5018AFU.html
a 50mm prime lens (prime means no zooming) with a 1.8 or wider aperture has a ton of value. i have some pretty fancy stuff in my camera bag, but if i have to pick one lens to take with me to any given event, it's almost always going to be my 50mm.
