    Default backpacks

    Hey guys, i'm currently using a lowepro EX180 for my camera + kitlens + telephoto lens..

    I put the bag into my normal package and leave my tripod in it too, as the sling strap for the Ex180 is too short for me, and using a backpack is much more convinient.

    The thing is this, is it's quite troublesome accessing my stuffs and changing lens could be a pain.

    Any recommendation for big backpacks that will allow me to put a body, telephotol lens and around 2-3 more lens as well as a tripod..

    Will be looking at those big ones, as I dont look nice carry small backpacks

    Thanks..

    Just bought a bagman one from Suntec City. Some may say that it's an 'imitation' to the Crumpler, but I like the design as it does not look like a camera bag and it's good for travel.

    Hi,
    If you don't mind, can you tell where did you buy the bagman bag in Suntec ? I am looking for a simple backpack too - but a big one
    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    Sure, this is a big backpack that can hold a laptop and some lenses with 1 or 2 bodies. best of all, the compartment that holds your camera & lenses can be detached and it becomes a normal backpack. The shops's name is Digital Point. It's around the 'This Fashion' shop which is next to Carrefour. RRP of the bag is $99 but you can get at a lower price from that shop. As it's a small shop, the quantity is pretty limited. Do ask the guy to make an order for you if they do not have the colour you want. The colours available for the bag are yellow/orange, light blue, green, pink (I think) and brown.

    Bagman is an Australian brand aka Caseman in Europe.

    Here is their comprehensive catalogue.
    They sure are making a statement against their rival company bearing a similar logo.
