Hi Guys,

I'm shopping for a bag to house my D80 and a 70-300mm lens. Looking for something small and easy to carry around during weekend for family photo.

Anyone have experience whether it fit into a Crumpler 4 million dollars or any of the lowepro Topload model? Or do you guys have any other recomendation?

I suggest at least a 5million dollar bag.
I tried to squeeze my 400D with kit lens + 50mm f1.8
BARELY squeezed those in. your D80 is bigger in size than my 400D. plus your lens is bigger too..
5Mil bag might give you space for a small water bottle too

Got a $5Mhome recently. It's great for casual moving around! :thumbsup:
I can fit:
  • Centre portion: D50 + 18-200VR
  • Side portion #1: 50mm f/1.8
  • Side portion #2: Not too thick novel (~400pgs) + SB600 or
  • Side portion #2: Thick novel (~600pgs), cannot fit in SB600
  • Front pocket: iPaq rx4715 + small 2.5" HD case

Since I think D80 is just about same size as D50, it should fit really handily into the $5Mhome. I highly recommend you to go have a try!

Any idea where I can take a look at a selection of domke bags?

I understand these bags are really inconspicuous cam bags but being just canvas, my concern is do they provide enuff protection? :)

Well, Cathay photo sell them , for cheaper solution u can go for safrotto at the camera workshop , the f3x only got padding in the bottom but that's good enough. If u want more protection i think u buy the f803 ,the one look like the bag that people usually carry to work,have more padding,slim profile,padding removeable , when not carry many equipment i remove the padding,put only the bottom padding,so i can carry document with one body and nobody know. now it is my everyday back,school or photography :bsmilie:

Well if u want to carry only 1 small bag with 1 body fit with one lens i think u have some choice :

-Lowepro photo runner
-Lowepro toploader 70 ( i think 65 not enough )
- topload zoom ?

Why don't you bring your camera and lense and whatever stuffs you want to put inside to the shops and try out all the bags. CP has quite a number of camera bags, and you can try the fit to help you decide.

Thanks Bro. I have the Lowepro Stealth Reporter which is quite close to the capacity as yours. However, I'm looking a bag just enough for one D80 and 70-300 lens.

I'm looking one too for my D70s, and I think the Crumpler 4 Million should suit my needs. You guys know where to get one and how much? I know there's a Crumpler outlet in Wheelock Place, but I don't know whether they carry that.

Thx
