    Default bag for my nikon d70/tripod/laptop

    hi,

    i'm just a newbie in photography (and also to clubsnap)

    can anyone please advise for a cheap camera backpack bag that can hold my nikon d70 some lenses (atleast 3), has a tripod holder and has a compartment for a 15" laptop...

    how much does this kind of bag costs?

    where can i buy it?
    do you know a shop that sells a second hand camera backpack bag

    thanks in advance...

    are u talking abt here, in singapore, or back in your country, wrt to the 2nd-hand bag? cos locally, i dun think there's a dedicated shop dat sells used-bags in singapore.

    for ur carrying need, u might want to consider a lowepro computrekker AW

    or the newer compurover AW

    hi nightwolf...i'll be visiting singapore next week and one of my agenda is to scout for cheap camera bags.....

    about the 2nd-hand shops, i was thinking that there might be some shops, not exactly dedicated to 2nd hand bags but are selling 2nd hand items or surplus items and might have a 2nd hand camera backpacks on the side.....

    oic... well, advanced welcomes to singapore then!

    there are some surplus (used-equipment) shops ard city hall area, in peninsular shopping centre, peninsular plaza and the adephi. all these buildings are situated within 15mins walk from city hall MRT stn. they have plenty of 2nd-hand equipment shops (eg The Camera Workshop - ie TCW, prime cameras etc). however, do take time to walk ard and shop? and do remember to extensively test the equipment u might want to purchase.

    as for bags, like i said, doubt u can find used ones in these shops. as for new pricing, it varies. these 2 bags shld be going for ard $100+. got a fren who purchased the compuRover AW recently. think he bought it for ard $130?? can't quite remember.

    cathay shld have, as they have one of the largest collection of lowepro bags ard. my fren bought it from TK photo, near beach road, cos cathay ran out of stocks when he wanted to buy.

    Pagi Sam, thanks...

    Must be quite new, last time was there only saw they carry Crumpler and Lowepro... will pay them a visit. So far haven't found a bag that I like. Either too big (Crumpler The Formal Lounge) or too bulky (Lowepro Computrekker) that's only me.
