    Default Looking for a bag for casual shooting over the weekend

    Hi Guys,

    I'm shopping for a bag to house my D80 and a 70-300mm lens. Looking for something small and easy to carry around during weekend for family photo.

    Anyone have experience whether it fit into a Crumpler 4 million dollars or any of the lowepro Topload model? Or do you guys have any other recomendation?

    I have a Stealth 100. Looking for something like the toploader style. Just to carry the camera with a 70-300mm.

    toploader 70 should do the trick.

    Do you think toploader 65 can do the job.

    well, looking at lowepro website, 65 might be a little too "fit"... better to go for a 70.

    I suggest at least a 5million dollar bag.
    I tried to squeeze my 400D with kit lens + 50mm f1.8
    BARELY squeezed those in. your D80 is bigger in size than my 400D. plus your lens is bigger too..
    5Mil bag might give you space for a small water bottle too

    It looks very similar to the lowepro stealth reporter 100.

    Got a $5Mhome recently. It's great for casual moving around!
    I can fit:
    • Centre portion: D50 + 18-200VR
    • Side portion #1: 50mm f/1.8
    • Side portion #2: Not too thick novel (~400pgs) + SB600 or
    • Side portion #2: Thick novel (~600pgs), cannot fit in SB600
    • Front pocket: iPaq rx4715 + small 2.5" HD case


    Since I think D80 is just about same size as D50, it should fit really handily into the $5Mhome. I highly recommend you to go have a try!

    Any idea where I can take a look at a selection of domke bags?

    I understand these bags are really inconspicuous cam bags but being just canvas, my concern is do they provide enuff protection?

    Well, Cathay photo sell them , for cheaper solution u can go for safrotto at the camera workshop , the f3x only got padding in the bottom but that's good enough. If u want more protection i think u buy the f803 ,the one look like the bag that people usually carry to work,have more padding,slim profile,padding removeable , when not carry many equipment i remove the padding,put only the bottom padding,so i can carry document with one body and nobody know. now it is my everyday back,school or photography

    Well if u want to carry only 1 small bag with 1 body fit with one lens i think u have some choice :

    -Lowepro photo runner
    -Lowepro toploader 70 ( i think 65 not enough )
    - topload zoom ?

    Why don't you bring your camera and lense and whatever stuffs you want to put inside to the shops and try out all the bags. CP has quite a number of camera bags, and you can try the fit to help you decide.

    Thanks Bro. I have the Lowepro Stealth Reporter which is quite close to the capacity as yours. However, I'm looking a bag just enough for one D80 and 70-300 lens.

    I'm looking one too for my D70s, and I think the Crumpler 4 Million should suit my needs. You guys know where to get one and how much? I know there's a Crumpler outlet in Wheelock Place, but I don't know whether they carry that.

    Thx
