    I am going out to get my nikon d40 out at bestbuy. The thing is I'm curious as to what kind of bag to get. I know lowepro's make good ones but is there anything else thats less expensive? thanks...

    Camera bags are all expensive really...
    I know some designers make them...Roots in Canada makes some cheaper ones...but I'm pretty sure they're canada only.
    Umm...
    Just look around. Find something with room to grow. very important.
    Easy to carry (FOR A LONG TIME)

    Good luck.

    I have a lowe pro, I like it for its convienience but it's small and kinda stiff. The strap is comfy but overall it kinda flops around every which way. The tamrac bags tend to soften up and for some reason are easier to carry. They are cheaper to boot.

    I am currently using a Crumpler "7 Million Dollar Home" and I love it, I can ger gear out without having to set it down and it does not look like a camera bag. Check them out the quality is top notch.

    Well if your friend can't get any cheaper than $477 Amazon.com has the D40 w/ lens. Also I believe $10 off on some sort of case or something

    A) Do lots of research before purchasing a D40. Read here and online.

    B) Best Buy's (and Canada's Future Shop, they are the same company) employee prices are store cost + 10%. If you can get whatever at employee price, that is a break for you... however, I have often purchased on Amazon + shipping + all related costs and still got a better deal in the end.

    Do your homework before plunking your money down!

    well we found a deal on this site last night but my mom wont get it because she gets the rewards program and she gets triple rewards plus 10 percent off. So ill probably end up getting a bag anyways. We will see.
    thanks for all the help...

    My most used bag and cheapest was/is a messenger bag from a clothing store. I cut up some foam for padding on the bottom. Doesn't look like a "steal" me camera bag either.
