Thread: Crumpler or Lowepro?

  1. #1

    Default Crumpler or Lowepro?

    Yo guys...I was thinking was getting a bag that can store my stuff and look gd at the same time. Crumpler 5 million dollar bag could be it. Would be getting a 580EX and Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 maybe. If I were to bring these 2 with my 350D and kit lens would it still fit? And would it fit maybe one more small 50mm f/1.8 or another lens? What bout lowepro? Any gd stuff to recommand? Thanks! Oh yah btw. Can u take out the padding in between for the 5 million dollar bag?

    I would say save the money and get the Bagman brand. Imitation but IMO much more spacious than Crumpler.

    the less expensive and less screaming "expensive camera gear!" the bag, the less likely you'll become a target for mugging and robbery...(so the theory goes)

    obviously sg is supposed to be statistically safer than a lot of other places, but still...

    does it makes a difference when you have to take out your camera to shoot and ppl can see what you are using is a DSLR and not a compact/prosumer.

    I have both 5million and 7million crumplers
    If the 70-200 f2.8 is mounted on your 350D, it won't fit inside the 5 million. With it mounted, think the 7 million an barely fit only

    if not mounted, it's gonna be quite a tight fit for ur lenses and flash. Suggest you get the 7 million

    Agree. I'm using the 7 mil and mounted my 70-200 f/4 to my 10D. It still juts out a bit.

    there will be times when you need it secured away, or just transporting it.
    prosumer cameras get nicked as much as pro/semi ones...

    does it make a difference that your camera bag must look hot and sexy? afterall, you dont take pictures with your bag do you...

    it depends on individuals so i dun put people down on that. bags is as much as a photographic accessories but it can be a fashion statement. being a photographer, even a good one, doesn't mean they cannot have the that preference. of cos, there should be a priority.
