    Howdy Folks!!!
    I'm trying to find an alternative bag/case for my Rolleiflex. Something not so cumbersome when photo-ing. The leather case gets in my way and it's not in any shape to go where I want to go shooting. Not to mention it's a painful and lengthy process to change rolls or even attach it to a tripod while it's dressed. I've been thinking of a bag for digitals or maybe a lens slip bag (the camera will slip into a shoulder bag for travel) but I'm not sure. I know, I know- it's a bit excessive but I use chuncky cameras for a clumsy reason. The size needs to be 7in x 3in x 4in maybe a little bigger for the strap.

    I live where the only practical hands on is at Walmart- none of those fit... too small, so I have to guesstimate. Any suggestions?

    No kidding. I spent months searching Ebay for an affordable leather case for my Rollei, and then since it's such a pain to change film I've never used it.

    I just use a old camera bag designed for a 35mm SLR system. It has a central compartment that is big enough for the camera, a flash, my light meter, and a small DIY flash bracket/handle, and two outside pockets for film, filters, cable release, lens hood, etc...

    You might be able to fashion something out of neoprene and velcro that would protect the camera when packed in another bag.
