First, I love the actual critiques you guys give instead of blowing smoke like they do on the photo.net "critiques". Bravo. Ok, on to my problem: I currently use a basic North Face backpack. Black, small mesh pockets on the sides, small organizer pocket inside the main compartment. Pretty basic, but it works. Not well though. I normally carry: A couple magazines, some papers, lunch (tupperware thing, can of V8 maybe), a very small umbrella, Rebel2000 w/battery pack & 50mm, 420ex in its case, Checkbook, spare roll of film, miscelaneous small crap... Obviously, I'm not really protecting my camera that well. I'd like get something that will work better. I've been looking at: Not sure about fitting 11" papers in it, and not easy access to camera. Again, not to easy to get to the camera, but this is looking pretty good. This looks pretty cool, quick access to the camera...ganna have to ditch that lame logo though. I like to have my camera on me, but I think I need to do something better since I'll probably be carrying some more&better lenses soon. I'd rather not look like a photojournalist if I can help it. I was wondering what some of you do for everyday bags? Is there another option I'm missing? Thanks in advance.
