Hi guys,

Sorry for asking this here, but I am very new to this.

I'm looking for a bag for my A300, misc stuffs like filters, batteries, CF card, blower, maybe 2-3 lens. My free sony alpha bag is a bit fugly to bring out, seriously look like tourist.

Budget is around 100-200. Would prefer bag pack or waist pouch with easy access to DSLR, then can whip out faster. If die die dun have, then will consider sling bag.

Any models to recommend? No need to be too branded. Saw Nat Geo bags the other day but more than $200.

I would consider a Think Tank Streetwalker. But ultimately it would be best to go to a shop and touch them yourself. Play around and see which ones you like.

Just make a trip down to Cathay or TK Foto, there're lots of bags there for you to choose. Difficult to tell you which to buy cos what I like you may not like.

hey guys,
sorry abit OT here. but when i saw those pictures of the camera bag, the camera is actually placed "len down".

i am wondering placing the camera in this matter, will cause any problem? cause the weight of the camera is all on the lens.
