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.

Sorry Folks,

Need help again...

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.

Wondering is there such a bag?

Where can i find it?

Thanks.

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

Just get a big plastic bag, dump everything in it. Done:thumbsup:

Anyway i have a 7mil dollar home. It's good, not fantastic though due to it's big size.

what about the days when you only want to bring a camera body and 2 lenses? :dunno:

then leave the big bag half empty?

You can try Domke bags.

Currently what I'm doing is using a normal messenger bag but buying inserts to convert it to a camera bag on days when I want to bring my equipment out with me.

I think you should look around and check out the bags yourself. You got to like what you're using, others' opinions are merely secondary.

Ya, you can take a look @ Domke bags @ Cathay Photo. I'm currently using a F3x. So far good enough for a 50D with grip + 2 to 3 extra lenses with flash. Of cos with places for other stuffs too.

Happy bag hunting.

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 use the 6 million dollar home.

There are some nice Safrottos at Camera Workshop, or you can try Ben Photo - I cannot remember what brand they were selling.

I am thinking of getting inserts at the moment, have enough bags already :embrass:

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.

not too bad for me!

A caveat:

Bigger bags would make you carry more than what you actually need.
The more unnecessary equipment with you, the less you focus on trying to make a good picture.

It's okay to own every single camera and lens in the world. It isn't okay to carry all of them.
