Thread: Recommend me a camera bag

  1. #1

    Default Recommend me a camera bag

    Hi all,

    Its time to get a new camera bag

    Probably a backpack type, but it should be large enough to accomodate:

    1. D70
    2. 18-70mm AF-S f/3.5-4.5DX lens
    3. 50mm f/1.8D
    4. 70-200 f/2.8VR
    5. Cleaning stuff like a blower/lens pen
    6. Pockets for remote control, spare battery

    I will be making a trip to Mulu/Miri in Sarawak, and it will involve a lot of trekking and some caving. So I guess I'll need something that can accomodate everything listed above except the 50mm (will leave that behind), with maybe some side pockets for a bottle of water and maybe a light tripod? Preferably water resistant in case of rain.. Is this asking too much, or should I just dump the camera and lenses into my 80L camping backpack?

    Would love to hear some suggestions, thanks!

    Hmmz..Maybe u shld look for Xiao Ding Dang. He got 'Ba Bao Dai', shld suffice ya needs..

    Seriously speaking, if you got loads to stuff to put in besides ya camera equipment, why dunt u get a sling bag and stuff the sling back into ya normal backpack . I mean if you're thinking of getting a backpack for ya camera, wont u be carrying two backpacks?
