    It's a trend.... Nowadays, no manufacturer build things to last! Last time when police wear shorts, my father's TV, Fridge, Household stuff lasted us 20 years! The new generation TV, household appliances, regardless the technology, will just give up the ghost after 5-7 years. It makes sense from a business perspective, but not so for the consumer.
    Pictures always should have a special story behind it or a special meaning to the photographer.

    Hi,
    Looking for a pouch to house my
    Olympus E-P3 + Panasonic 25mm f1.4.

    Any idea if the Avea 05 or the Delta pocket will be able to fit the above mentioned items? I am looking at this to throw it into my work bag.

    Seems like a very tight fit if you ask me.. I don't even think the body can fit. Billingham website has the size and its smaller than dimensions of the ep-3.

    Hi everyone! Would a Hadley Small fit a canon 600d mounted with 18-55 or 15-85 and maybe with some spare room for 50mm? Am looking for a stylish walkabout bag. Scared Hadley pro would be too big for girls

    fyi: i'm using a hadley small to carry my canon 600d mounted w/ 18-55, another slot can fit my 2nd lens 70-300 (the lens protrude abit at the top but can still snap close the flap if u get what i mean).
    still have 1 slot left to carry water bottle or umbrella or miscellanous items.. i find it a nice size for gals

    Ohh that's great. So that means I can throw in my 55-250 too. Hmm... can seriously consider then

    Can't find anyone selling what I want in B&S so ended up calling Mr PK Chan to buy brand new. Was initially set on getting the 307, but changed my mind after seeing the items in real life. Got this in the end:



    To be frank, I am really amazed at how you guys can fit 2 zoom and flashlight with a body in the Hadley pro. The bag will bulk quite a bit. and it will be very awkward for me from what I see. I was sold on the Hadley large because I can use the bag for work purpose, and to hold my gears when I am out shooting. It happened that my work bag is about to give way already, and the Hadley Large seems a good 2 in 1 solution for me.

    I use it to hold my 5D attached with 35L, another 77mm prime and 580exII on another side. That is already quite bulky even on the large. I picked this because there are 2 additional compartments where I can put my A4 size document for work, and these 2 compartments can store quite alot of them. I think what Mr Chan said is pretty true, different people different view, but the Hadley Pro does not make the cut for me for what I have. If I add in a telezoom, the bag will more or less reach full capacity, maybe can add a mini prime lens, and that's about it. The 307 did not make the cut for me because it looks more like a camera bag and is not suitable for my daily use.

    Lastly, 5* for Mr Chan. Really nice guy. Guys who wanna buy Billingham locally, dun really need to waste time searching already. Just go straight to him for best buying experience I added the SP-40 strap for a very cool price too, and needed no 2nd thoughts I was glad I went to meet him. Should have done so earlier, save me time searching for pics on the net, which turned out to be, well, quite different from the real thing. It's always best to be able to feel and touch.

    I don think so. At least u need a pro but without attaching the lens to the body.

    I agree. At least a pro or best, the large will do the job very well. Am using a Hadley large now and can hold my 70-200 OS HSM very well. No attached camera of course..

    thanks folks for the replies. the large will be too big for my consideration.
    sadly the Small, f/1.4 and f/2.8 height seem cant fit the 70-200mm, so the only choice is Pro.

    The large is perfect for me imho. The pro and small are too... small for my frame and does not provide much room for expansion as well. Plus if you carry more things will bulge out and it feels not so comfy for me.

    I use my large for work too and it double up as a very nice document bag as well. Been neglecting my 307 as a result!

    Im using Hadley small to fit my nikon d7000 with tamron 17-50 f2.8, a sb700 and a 35mm f1.8.All can fit in but you can't add in more things as it will be bulky.

    Got my Hadley Small today from the friendly Mr Chan. Am enjoying the bag as it can hold all my gear nicely, more than what I expected.
