    dun worry u r not alone in the quest for the perfect bag!

    try to get those bag that can carry 3 ways:

    shoulder sling
    backpack sling
    hand carry

    im using one such bag (converse) but its of a flimsy(collapsible build)


    u can oso buy a backpack but sew on a strap meant for shoulder sling. maybe can sew on xtra pockets oso. this will depend on the design of the bag itself.

    I had the same headache... but i managed to 'perfect' it.

    I now use a normal backpack -- I have a Victorinox backpack. When I need to bring along my camera, I put in padded inserts from Domke (can get from CP). The inserts can hold 2 lens, 1 body, 1 flash. THere's lots of extra space for books and extra clothes as well.

    Best thing is: from the outside, no body can suspect you're carrying a camera system!

    The inserts are mainly to organise my camera equipment and to protect them. BUt if you don't havce enough money, then just wrap your lenses in soft towels. DOn't worry, your camera is made to be used - as long as you don't throw your bag everywhere you go!

    pls lar. crumpler bags are really useless..... $160 can get u like 8 sling bags of lasting materials and nice designs in bugis village ok.... as for the deuter ones, the money is worth it. material wise, design wise, everything.

    actually, I'm also a poly student.

    I cant seem to find a good laptop cum camera bag.

    crumpler abit too corny for me...somemore expensive. too expensive in my opinion.

    any recommendations?

    those who have the same needs, what you guys using?

    TIA
