    Default Camera bag

    Hi all,
    Need your advise on which is the most appropriate camera bag to buy to put a camera (GF1 with lens) and a netbook.

    Thank you.

    perhaps you can check out CRUMPLER

    I would guess that a messenger bag kind of style would be what you're after.
    Exploring! :)

    I bought a messenger bag at $5 from Beach Road Army Market for my D40 and two kit lenses.

    This small and light weight bag should be just nice for a GF1 and a netbook.

    This bag is not standard army item but it is allowed in the army according to the lady boss. Color is light brown and looks nice. Not all shops carry this item. Walk up the stair and the shop on the left is where I bought mine. The lady boss is very friendly.

    For D40 + 2 lenses? Any padding inside? Is your body & lenses sufficiently protected?

    No padding comes with the bag.

    I used foams and double-sided tapes to create two compartments. One for the body with kit lens, the other for the second lens. They are well protected.

    Do you mean foam? Sounds kinda of flimsy.

    But anyway, txs for sharing
