Just finding out which your favorite camera bag and why?

Pokiemon - I am using the Crumpler Next Venue. Quite padded but don't really like the "secret" compartment to store the lens.

they r the cheapest in town... atleast they give discount... even apple members buying from crumpler retail also dun have 20%.... iirc only 10%.... lol
i prefer crumpler as it looks more casual n less of a camera bag which means less pro.... lowepro looks too pro liao.... and bags like domke n brillingham is worse... even more attention seeking... tsk tsk

Domke (ballastic) is the best. tough, comfortable, waterproof, spacious, but too expensive.

i think i paid $150 for my next venue at CP.

top compartment can store 1 camer horizontally, 2 100mm lens.
secret compartment can store 1 580 flash, 1 zoom lens, 1 prime lens. nice to look at but don't find it very functional.

i think i prefer just one level so easier to switch lens.

do u guys know which lowepro can store 1 cam and about 5 lens?

i have only seen them in CP. they come in limited pcs, so once sold it will take a very long time for new stocks. even the CP people do not know when will the new stock coming. so if you happen to see a suitable Domke in CP, get it fast. having said that, their replicas are sold at TCW.

try ordering Domke bags from US (B&H PHoto), they are so much cheaper in US, plus shipping to S'pore.. the total price could be lesser than what CP is selling now..........

Cheers......
