Bag recommendation - SLR with lens and other stuff
« on: September 27, 2009, 09:50:10 PM »
Hi! I just got a Canon 450D. I've been looking for a bag that can help me hold these stuff:

camera with mounted zoom lens (not too big, just like the EF-S 18-200)
a prime or another small lens (EF 50mm f1.8 II)
a spare battery
cleaning stuff like a small blower, cleaning cloth and lenspen
stuff for travelling like passport, folded map, cellphone, wallet and coin purse, a key with keychain, mints ;), tiny usb drive, and a pen
optional - flash, 430exII- i rarely use the flash so we can remove this from the list if it'll make the bag too big or expensive

It would have to be light enough so it'll be comfortable to walk around with it all day, and small enough so i can carry it anywhere and not be counted as additional baggage when i bring it in a plane.

I could buy a battery grip in the future because my pinky slips off the bottom and i've heard lots of great stuff about battery grips, so it would be better if the bag can fit a body with grip, but that's low priority right now.

I've used a Tamrac velocity before but it doesn't have enough space for even a wallet, passport, cleaning stuff, and a phone so i end up carrying another bag with the stuff i mentioned. Also, it made my left shoulder ache when i walked around with it for a whole day. Shoulder bags are probably better because it's easier to transfer it to another shoulder when you get tired. Also, some shoulder bags let you attach them to bigger luggage, "piggyback" as it's called. That'll be nice too, but Lowepro bags cost a lot! I've seen bags with tripod attachments at the side, those would be nice because i always bring a tripod with me, but if they're gonna make the bag cost too much, then we can forget about that one.

Are there any accessories i can buy that can let me attach a tripod to a normal bag?

Any ideas?

Thanks! Sorry for the newbie question!

madami nang ganun topic.

ang isa sa pinaka magandang bags na na design is yun tamrac velocity series  :o :o :o

sa kaso mo,kung kinulang ang velocity,bili pa ng mas malakai,naka 3 velocity na nga ako eh. palaki nang palaki...ganun ko sya ka love ::)

oo nga pala,dont put all your stuff on one bag

search mo sa net ::)
