Hi all,

Its time to get a new camera bag :cry:

Probably a backpack type, but it should be large enough to accomodate:

1. D70
2. 18-70mm AF-S f/3.5-4.5DX lens
3. 50mm f/1.8D
4. 70-200 f/2.8VR
5. Cleaning stuff like a blower/lens pen
6. Pockets for remote control, spare battery

I will be making a trip to Mulu/Miri in Sarawak, and it will involve a lot of trekking and some caving. So I guess I'll need something that can accomodate everything listed above except the 50mm (will leave that behind), with maybe some side pockets for a bottle of water and maybe a light tripod? Preferably water resistant in case of rain.. Is this asking too much, or should I just dump the camera and lenses into my 80L camping backpack? :bsmilie:

Would love to hear some suggestions, thanks!

Hmmz..Maybe u shld look for Xiao Ding Dang. He got 'Ba Bao Dai', shld suffice ya needs.. ;p

Seriously speaking, if you got loads to stuff to put in besides ya camera equipment, why dunt u get a sling bag and stuff the sling back into ya normal backpack . I mean if you're thinking of getting a backpack for ya camera, wont u be carrying two backpacks?
