Hi!

Could anyone tell me where's the best place (in terms of price) to buy Crumpler bags in Singapore? Cathay Photo or the official shop in Wheelock Place?

I'm looking for a backpack style (not shoulder/sling) bag for my Canon 300D. I'm considering the following: Formal Lounge, Farmer's Double, Puppet and Shrinkle. Would anyone have any opinions/recommendations as to which would be best? I don't really want to carry too big a bag around, but I also want to allow for later expansion. Your views would be much appreciated.

Any ideas what these bags would cost at the moment? I'm making a trip down to Singapore (from KL) in the next couple of weeks.

Thanks.

Cathay Photo much cheaper than official shop in Wheelock Place. Quoted $300+ for Brian's Hot Tub but got for $250 at CP.

No worries... I'm interested to know as well... Might end up buying both a camera AND laptop bag! ;)

Phildate - thanks for the tip! How big is that Brian's Hot Tub? Is it really as big as it sounds?!?

I agree, CP has a better pricing advantage :D . However, if you don't mind second hand ones, you can check out the marketplace in the forum and ask around. Who knows, you can get one in good condition and at a fraction of the market price ;)

Hey Jikon.

The Brian's Hot Tub is a pretty big bag but I wanted to get something that I would accomodate future purchases. The padding is good but haven't worn it fully loaded for a long trek. The camera compartments are adjustable and the whole inside shell can be removed if need be.

So far so good in my opinion
