Thread: Camera Bag Poll - Lowepro, Crumpler or Domke

  1. #1

    Default Camera Bag Poll - Lowepro, Crumpler or Domke

    Just finding out which your favorite camera bag and why?

    Pokiemon - I am using the Crumpler Next Venue. Quite padded but don't really like the "secret" compartment to store the lens.

    Function wise, Lowepro for me. Though I do own a couple of crumplers as well.

    they r the cheapest in town... atleast they give discount... even apple members buying from crumpler retail also dun have 20%.... iirc only 10%.... lol
    i prefer crumpler as it looks more casual n less of a camera bag which means less pro.... lowepro looks too pro liao.... and bags like domke n brillingham is worse... even more attention seeking... tsk tsk

    Domke (ballastic) is the best. tough, comfortable, waterproof, spacious, but too expensive.

    i think i paid $150 for my next venue at CP.

    top compartment can store 1 camer horizontally, 2 100mm lens.
    secret compartment can store 1 580 flash, 1 zoom lens, 1 prime lens. nice to look at but don't find it very functional.

    i think i prefer just one level so easier to switch lens.

    do u guys know which lowepro can store 1 cam and about 5 lens?

    i have only seen them in CP. they come in limited pcs, so once sold it will take a very long time for new stocks. even the CP people do not know when will the new stock coming. so if you happen to see a suitable Domke in CP, get it fast. having said that, their replicas are sold at TCW.

    try ordering Domke bags from US (B&H PHoto), they are so much cheaper in US, plus shipping to S'pore.. the total price could be lesser than what CP is selling now..........

    Cheers......
