    Crumpler. I am using the Karachi Outpost. Probably the coolest camera bag easily found off the shelves.
    I say the lens is the soul of a camera. What about the body? Well, it's just the body...

    Hi sidzal74,

    forgive me for riding on your thread to ask related questions as I'm also intending to get a spacious backpack for my dslr... Am looking for 1 that offers enough space for 450D + Kit Lens + 50mm Prime Lens + (maybe another Zoom/ Macro Lens in the near future...); & also sufficient space to put other misc stuffs if I bring my child out on a photoshoot session (things includes those Vacuum Themal Flask, Milk Bottle & Milk powder containers & many others - CS'ers whom have young kids may know what I meant...); & preferbably also a compartment to bring along a 15- to 17-inch laptop... [LOL!!! Guess better for me to get 1 of those Luggage bags with trolley wheels...]

    Am looking at a few models: Tamrac Adventure 9; Lowepro Fastpack 350; Flipside 300; Crumpler Customary Barge. Will be glad if anyone whom'd used/owned these bags before to advice if it is suitable based on my situation above. TIA!!!

    PS: Happy 44th National Day to all & have a great long weekends...

    Wow, even if there is a bag for all that, you sure you want to carry it around? If taking child out for outing, maybe you can be more selective about the lenses you are carrying, otherwise it becomes more of a chore.

    Hi all;

    Thanks for the advice. I just bought a Kata DR466i, not to big though, enough to put DSLR camera plus 3 lenses and a laptop together with my personal belongings.

    Thks Lomographer, as you'd put it correctly... IF I have the extra cash, will surely get it... [Keeping fingers & toes crossed for this Wed's 4D draw... ]

    Hi Alex, yup, sometimes may bring my family (wife + 3-yr old kid) along for photo shoot. So need to bring all these items along & can't expect my wife to carry all of it while I happily click away on the camera's shutter... Hence, I always find that I don't carry as much barang barang even when I go back Reservist for outfield exercise...

    Thanks for the advise ijnek, currently am putting my child's stuffs in my normal backpack, then lugging my 450D in the default Canon Shoulder Sling bag... To make things worse, sometimes my kid will demand me to carry, so you can imagine the situation when there comes a moment I wish to capture down fast using my 450D... [Sometimes, have kancheong thots to 'throw' my kids down & just capture the moment 1st before it goes away...]

    Thanks ahbian, currently only have the Kit Lens & a 50mm Prime lens so not those very big lens yet... but just wish to dump everything (DSLR + Lenses + kid's stuffs) into 1 bag for convenience sake as do not possess own vehicle, mostly on public transport... Do understand ijnek's concerns/ danger of putting water stuffs with cam... Then sometimes feel very guilty to just go on a shooting outing & left my wife & kid alone at home...

    Sigh!!!

    I use a normal Deuter Navajo 35, not special one for the camera but so far I manage to bring 2 bodies, 3 lens, 2 flashes, 1 tripod, 2 umbrellas, 1 light stand, reflectors, etc to my photoshoot...

    Btw if you bring too many things, no matter bag you use, the weight is gonna kill your shoulder
