erm try CP/MS... think they are the one that carry most Lowerpro stocks.
as for camera + laptop bag, if you are looking towards putting many gear including a 80-200 f2.8 equvi size lens, you might want to look at Lowerpro Computetrekker :thumbsup:.

Most photographers choose bags that suit their needs. See what you need, that see what bags are offered for sale. Then make your smart buy!
If you've decided on a backpack, go for it - more carrying comfort, one downside though is changing lenses can be challenging if you cannot put down anything.

When buying a harness/belt system, make sure you also have a shoulder bag or backpack for transporting your photo gear too. I was considering to buy a harness/belt system a few years ago, but later I realized that for the type of shootings I do, it would be too cumbersome to transport my gear with the harness/belt system. And I certainly don't want to carry my gear in bags and then transfer them to the harness/belt system on location. Some people don't mind that though, so your mileage may vary.

Depends on kind of bag u like. For me, sling bag will be Crumpler 7 million (think abt $140) and Lowepro backpack will be minitrekker AW ( abt $120)

Try Tamrac, Lowepro, for backpacks and shoulderbag.

Crumpler, Domke and Billingham for shoulderbags only. Domke would be a nice bag for faster access. To transport lots of gear, Tamrac is nice, find it better than Lowerpro which has a larger selection.

Which brands does MS Color sell? Are they mostly shoulder bags or backpacks? It's a little inconvenient to get there just to see.
Other tha Cathay & MS Color, I know there's a 'Hasselblad shop' at Plaza Sing that sells Tenba. What other brands are there locally and where can they be found? Thanks.
