Good warning. They don't put grips on lenses for a reason, eh? Sorry for your friend's loss.

Shoot, learn and share. It will make you a better photographer.

First of all, let's talk about the way the lens is facing up, in fact, this is a more common way, because the fuselage is wider, the plane of the LCD screen is relatively stable, and will not bring too much oppression to the lens, So many people use this approach. However, it should be noted that, in this way, when the first camera to get access to the camera, so it will take when the lens caused by discomfort, it is hard to say, and the other LCD direct contact with the package At the end, if the bottom is not soft and thick, it will cause damage to the liquid crystal screen, which is worth considering, and this approach is not conducive to rapid capture and timely capture, so most of the time of travel or usually do not have this place.

Another way is the lens down, this approach is exactly the opposite of the previous one, so still have to consider Bu lens force problem, if the lens directly contacts the bottom, supporting a certain weight of the fuselage, over time is bound to be Lens and the fuselage connection caused by excessive force, so individuals do not recommend this approach, but now many of the backpack inside a semicircular or circular support pad, let the fuselage lens empty, not direct contact with the package At the end, such a way to reduce the relative pressure on the lens.

As for horizontal or side-by-side, these two methods are basically the same. The lens is parallel to the bottom of the package, and the body is perpendicular to the bottom of the package. However, since the lens is located in the middle of the camera body, the lens and the package bottom must not be in full contact It will form a point of view, which is back to the above lens body connection force problem, the best way is to add a piece of thick under the lens so that the lens and the body relative to a plane , So relatively speaking is better. If the horizontal and lateral what is the difference, then that is the handle toward Bu, more conducive to remove at any time, timely capture.
