    ok i need help on choosing a camera bag..
    i'd prefer a shoulder one and i need an all-weather one and my budget is 100$ max.

    here is what i'll put in:

    d80 body
    tokina 12-14mm
    nikon 18-200mm
    1-2 memory card
    3-4 filters
    batteries

    i wouldn't mind getting something that has more space, as i might add other things in the future...

    Lowe or Tamrac seem to be favorites.

    You will get a hundred answers telling you wich one is the particular posters favorite but the best way to find what is right for you is to look. Go to a good camera store that has a good selection of bags ant try your gerar in them oh yeah take your gear with you or hope they have comparable. The only piece of specific advice i can give you is to stay away from knock-offs if you want a good durable weather-proof bag that will last you need to stick with a name brand Lowe, Tamrac, or Domke to name a few.

    Im in a similar situation....I've Narrowed it down to the slingshot 100 or 200. But my concern is my manfrotto tripod model 190Pro-B, Unfortunately Manfrotto doesn't give you a strap with their tripods but they're generous enough to provide a clip for one! I don't mind buying a strap for it in the future, but would love it if the slingshot could carry tripods too even if it's exposed.

    any pics of it? I know people are attaching 1 leg of the tripod through the hoop on the side of the bag, but will this work with tripods like the 190Pro-B which is not a "heavy" tripod.

    any help?
