My suggestion is to get a bigger bag... don't be like me. I got a fitting bag and currently...after getting more lens, I have no choice but to get a bigger bag. Thus, spending more money in the end... :cry:
In a nutshell, bigger bag gives u options to carry the other stuff whereas a fitting bag has its limitation.
After sourcing around and surf the net for some bags, i think i finally know what i need to buy.
Basically i need a nice bag that look like the messenger bag or a document bag that i can just put 1 cam and additional lens out on those unplan days. Dun wana bring out bulky bag with all the accessories inside.
I prefer the flatter type and not those fat and "boxy" types.
Camera bags are by nature bulky due to all the padding. Trade-off between protection and bulkiness. If you ok with limited protection, any bag will do. Just dump your camera in
If you want protection and aiming at messenger bags type, the best choice is really Crumpler. You can pick their messenger bags and buy their inserts with padding, or just pick a camera bag like the 6 milliion dollar home suggested earlier.
i have the lowepro slingshot 100 - its small - will hold the camera plus 2 lenses max, and has an extra space for other misc stuff - but i love the design, very easy to take camera out quickly. i recommend it.. dunno if the style is wat ur looking for though
If you really want a simple messenger bag, i honestly think crumpler bags are great. They don't really look like a camera bag and you can easily remove the padded inserts to convert the bag into a normal bag.
After the previous IT sale, there are alot of people selling the 5/6 million dollar home when they bought Canon stuff. Less than $100. Quite a good deal if its your first bag.
i sold my crumpler 7MDH for a kata 3n1-22
shoulder bags take a toll on my shoulder and made it uncomfy for me to carry the bag around all day.
my backpack stores 1 dslr with short lens fixed on, 2 extra lenses, and enough space to store accessories
external option for me to fix a tripod to it on the outer shell.
