    True but the saying "you get what you pay for" applies here... Domkes are tough and durable bags, especially the ballistic nylon models. The stand up to rough use and are one of the more indiscreet looking camera bags.

    Just wondering if the free Domke lookalike Nikon bag that comes with the D50 is anything like it's real domke counterpart at all. Cause I didn't like the flimsy feel of the bag after having toted it thru hongkong for a week 1 year ago. Still enjoying the protection my lowepro is giving me but I do agree with the Domke website about the hefty size of it even though it's only a nova 3 aw. So far, the Tamrac Velocity 9 and backpacks seem the most enticing of the lot. Do domke's really offer that much protection? Maybe from the elements but the shocks and jabs that come with toting around?? :

    TCW sells domke copy safrotto bags. they are very durable too. have been using one and like domke, the more you use it, the more comfortable it becomes. only half the price.

    if you look into domke, you wil notice that they use mimimum protection. usually just a thin piece of high density foam. as compare to lowepro's heavy padding. plus pt is bag has more space, less wt. if you are one who always swing your bag and knock against things, get lowepro. if you just wan a bag that can put more gear, yet there is some protection, a domke is good

    If backpack, I'd recommend the Lowe Pro Minitrekker AW. Affordable, spacious and can also store a small laptop. Some pics here and over here.

    I don't quite like the Lowe Pro shoulder bags since they do not provide ample support when slung on shoulder. Much prefer Domke for shoulder bags. The metal hinges on the Domke don't allow the bag to sway if it's loaded heavily. The J-3 or J-2 would be good choices for your setup. They are a little pricey though.
    Hi Terence,

    Any idea on much it costs for this Lowe Pro Minitrekker AW and where to get it. Thanks.
