    If your asking for opinions, try telling us your budget and what you want to carry in it. Backpack or sling?

    Get a bag that's unobstrusive that doesn't scream CAMERA BAG. Flashy camera bags get unwanted attention and may give the impression that you've got expensive stuff inside.
    I've travelled some off the beaten track places years back and my canvas Domke looks like any ordinary shoulder bag.

    That reminds me of a conversation in my office.
    A: Why do so many people use Crumpler for camera bag?
    B: Because it doesn't scream "THIS IS A CAMERA BAG!".
    A: But it screams "I HAVE AN EXPENSIVE BAG!".
    B: ....

    Dunno about birkin.
    But I know you can spend twice the price of crumpler for timbuk2.
    Anyway, I can't bring myself to spend those money, so I will just stick to Lowepros and Tamracs...

    lol.

    I was being unfair. Birkin is a sub-brand for a women's handbag

    Let's just say my wife doesn't blink on spending $300 for a tiny Coach handbag and frowns when I spend $89 on a CompudayPack....

    would it help if you "kiaw" the pentax logo out of the lens/camera stuff and paste the Gucci or LV logo on them? That may entice her to buy it...

    Don't 'kiaw' lah, will spoilt the surface. It's easier to stick a plate with whatever brand name over it.

    If you interested in Macro & willing to travel down to Toa Payoh town park let me know. I'm willing to share my limited knowledge of macro The last gathering was organized by creampuff, dunno if he will do one soon. (Not easy to cater to everyone timing)

    Actually you can find more models in the same place at CP. Otherwise there more shops at Funan.
    Most are lowepro. I personally have an original Pentax bag (it tells what is inside the bag! ) but its not so well padded and only 1 side pocket. But its small and compact.
    When I went for the previous gathering, everyone else were using backpacks (the types where the top compartment is for personal stuff and the lower compartment for camera and lenses. Its easier to move around but I prefer to side sling bag because that allows me to access my camera and change lenses while walking.
