    I've got a Promaster bag and it was too small the second week I had it. What do you all use? I like the rip-stop nylon type but open to anything. What brand have you found to be the best size for the money? I would carry seven lenses usually plus accessories. :shock:

    Check out Lowepro.com They have camera bags of all sorts & sizes.

    It seems we always acquire more equipment than our camera bags will hold. ;)

    I think the best solution is to have more than one bag and take the one that best suits your needs on that particular day.

    I have an old Lowepro shoulder strap bag that is about 8" X 14". I also have a smaller one that will hold an SLR body with one lens, film & small accessories.

    Just came home from buying a Lowepro EX160. One SLR with lens and two additional lenses and accessories - $29.95 @ Circuit City! Excellent IMO!

    No actually, Im not even sure what modle it is. I got the specs from the seller and, since he/she was form here i trusted it (plus the cost of $25 helped my trust a little bit) It's a backpack that holds a camera w/ lens, room for a long zoom, and like 5 or 6 lenses. The only label i see rihgt now says Delsey.gopix. And I can't really find anything about it on their site either. Sorry.

    Nice Bag!

    I have two Tamrac backback bags. For me the "backpacks" come in real handy and are more (at least to me) comfortable to carry.

    I'm with Big Mike on this one. Lowepro all the way. I've got a DZ200 I think it's a 200 at least , anyway it's waterproof and floats can hold up to three bodies and 9 lenses, plus it has a day pack compartment.

    I have a Naneu Pro K-2/K-9 Large Size Camera Backpack which is awesome. You can pack a bunch and a lunch. :D I also have a Adorama "Slinger" shoulder bag. Great price, great design, and great size. I can fit two lenses, my Dig Rebel with Batt. grip, and a flash- plus all sorts of compartments for very goodies. I recommend this one for yer all purpose. I also have a Lowepro Nova 4 shoulder strap...which was smaller than I expected for the $$ I dished out for it...BUT probably the best design off the three- I am able to fit a TLR, flash, a multitude of accessories lenses, hood, light meter, etc...very comfy to wear as well.
