    Default how to carry DSLR evryday with personal stuff?

    Hi all CSs,

    so how do u guys manage to bring out DSLR as everyday use ? any bags can u recommend? or use soft pouch? i came form prosumer lx3 now i got problem with dslr size and weight ..

    Just curious how do u "accidentally" buy a DSLR? I dun get that part.

    Anyway I use a Crumpler bag. U can choose a few sizes depending on your need.

    If you wanna bring 2 lens use the 5 or 7 million dollar home.

    If u only use 1 lens, use the 4 million dollar home will do.

    7 Million is big can put alot of things... even flash....3 or 4 lens... etc. I like it.

    Other bags got lowepro, tamrac etc.... if u go funan shopping, u can see those there.

    I am using a 5 million dollar home( Free Gift from Canon). I am thinking of buying a backpack to put all my stuff in as well..(Lewopro Fastpack 250). But now my free gift can hold My Canon 500D with EF S55-250 f/4-5.6IS,EF 50mm f/1.8 II,EF-S 18 - 55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS & Speedlite 430EX II. As of now i think i will still use my free gift to hold my camera and lens. I'll use whatever backpack I've now to bring my other stuff along... Cheaper lar..heehee.

    get a daypack sort of camera bag.

    if there's a will, there's a way. if you don't have the will, then don't bother. forcing yourself to carry a camera around will just make you hate it.

    For me is crumpler, that is the only way I can bring it. But then maybe 7 million is too big for the everyday usage, 6m is excellent for me (depend on person figure, big people get bigger bag )

    however love my 7 million, because do not really use it everyday, just for phototrip, for everyday I am using tatonka (something similar to hoster) for 2 lens and 1 body + cleaning kit +several small item. For me 7 million is good for my traveling need

    Go to any camera shop with your camera setup and you will sure accidentally buy a camera bag that suit you.

    For camera bag, normally i will go CP, TK or OP because they are a lot of bag on display.

    Nice Idea... I also use that kind of thing when I need to travel using my Pedro bag (because in some occasion my GF only allow me to bring specific bag).

    OT : also curious, how you accidentally buy it?

    DIY is innovation before it is patented for mass production.

    just get whatever works best for you.
    You wont see me much less remember me but i am the guy who makes you look good.

    I just chuck it in my shoulder bag. There's a laptop compartment which I use for my camera. And I add in a small towel to prevent it from moving around too much.

    For me, I use Lowepro Fastpack 250. I can put my DSLR with grip, an external flash, a 50mm prime lens as well as my S5 IS digital Camera. Then top portion for my accessories, tidbits and other misc stuff.

    For my university textbooks, I squeeze them in laptop compartment. Overall bag is heavy, but the design of the bag is good, my shoulders isn't very stress by the weight compared to a normal bag with the same weight.

    so why not you DIY this then?
    The website also mentions a Domke insert. So maybe you can get that if you're lazy to DIY.
    Exploring! :)
