    I am looking for a fairly large size shoulder strap bag. i have a d70 and i want it to be able to hold the camera and haev room for a few lenses and possibly a film camera. if it has a laptop slip great, if not whatever.

    i saw a bag in the new shutterbug (i think) magazine and i dont remeber what it was.

    thanks.

    Not trying to be a smartass, but by using the Advanced Search (upper right of your screen - main menu bar) I hit 106 threads with using "bag" as a keyword for thread titles. I'm sure there will be some useful information for you within those.

    most of those threads are about peoples wives.......

    whats even funnier is that searching "bacon" will produce 156 threads... even more than camera bags....

    this supports my long standing theory that bacon and photography have a closely intertwined relationship...

    I'm sure there's probably a few references to having tea, but.........

    /offtopic

    I have two Lowepros... a slingshot and a top loader. Both are good. I do not care for shoulder bags personally, but many do.

    Shoulder meaning one strap or two?

    To be honest I bought a Canon bag for $30 that fits my big ass d90 w/ 80-200mm f/2.8 with lens hood attached, when a similar lowpre bag would have cost me upwards of $175-200. And it has room for more lenses and other goodies.

    dEARlEADER - Cracking me up again :lmao:

    BTW - I went to REI today trying to see if I could buy a backpack frame and hard mount my pelican 1500 to the thing! I also googled the concept and I'm not alone in my thinking, for a change.

    Looked at a few Lowepro bags too... the flipper 300 (loosely translated) seemed like a good home, but I like oversize zippers and the build was not overkill enough for my preferences. I thought the prices were pretty good for the smaller units. One of the zippers seemed to 'heal' into a shiny water resistant strip of nano skin, or was it bacon?

    Maybe I can DYI blogificate on my pelican mount, or at least get ripped a new one for any number of opportunities I have unfolded here.

    Now to locate that bag thread and find the one. :hail:

    i now plan i searching cheese! and see what i get lol.

    i agree tho. the lowepro bags i like, but i am not spending that much. i like the dakine mission photo, but i want a little more room for expansion.

    any ideas?
