Only camera backpack?

So why backpack manufacturers think we also 100% certain wish to have a laptop compartment, does anybody have an idea?

You need to decide what exactly the back pack is for, getting from A to B, or hiking once you get to B. Many people travel with a laptop and edit the photos as they go on a trip. But when hiking it is a pain, because it outs the rest of your gear about 2 inches further away from your back

Mine doesn’t have a laptop compartment. Am I missing out? Don’t think so, don’t have a laptop anyway.

Maybe they think that all those photographers want to process their pictures on the spot to send to friends and family, or, in the case of reporters, to their employer?

Plenty without that feature. Some have a very thin sleeve for a tablet some have nothing at all. I think there are people that need the tracker or laptop as part of their workflow on site.

Interestingly, I started to think all about this right after I got DFA* 70-200 battleship lens. Honestly, I was thinking the same, that it's nice to have additional space for laptop but in reality, you also carry a lot of things related to laptop, not only the laptop itself but just huge amount of other accessories. My P53 power brick alone is almost as big as the laptop, so I'm travelling with additional bag for laptop. Of course there are thinner ones but anyway Going back to its purpose, I don't know anybody who is post processing his images in the field, say in mountains somewhere, maybe in a hotel where you carry all of your bags anyway.

Is it a slingbag or backpack?

I remember how I spent days, weeks searching for good backpack and end up with something that is just collecting dust in my room.

It's a small Manfrotto backpack.

I can see good reasons for putting your gear in a backpack. It is better for your back and you can walk miles with it. It must be great for traveling. The thing is, I am too used of having my lenses right next to my hip. Nothing like it for a quick change. I just can't see myself taking off a backpack to get a lens out. For now I will stick to my old school shoulder bag. As for my laptop - it remains at home when I am out taking picutures, thank you very much.

It all depends on my plans for the day, and where I am going as well.
I use anything from a wrist strap, chest harness, holster, to a sling bag, backpack, or full size military surplus rucksack with a padded camera insert.
My iPad is likely to be my portable processing and upload solution, since I need fewer peripheral device to use and charge it.
