    Hello all! I am just interested in what camera bag/case/other that you have or use.

    I personally own a lowepro nova170 and a lowepro zoom mini.

    I use to have a lowepro slingshot 100.

    I mainly keep my 24-105 mounted with the lens hood attached in my nova 170. I walk around with the 50mm 1.8 on in the zoom mini.

    When i had a 30d the slingshot was awsome because i could keep my 28-75 mounted, with my 55-250 and 50 in the bag also.

    What do you use?

    I have maybe a dozen camera bags & cases. I use the one that is most appropriate for the trip/gig that I'm on.

    My primary bag is a Lowepro Computrekker AW (backpack style bag). Although I'm thinking that I'd like something like a ThinkTank Airporter.

    Used to have a Slingshot 200, but found it too small.

    For longer treks I have a Lowepro Primus. Fits camera, grip, 70-300 mounted, 28-75, 10-22, 50, 430EX II all in the lower compartment, but I rarely bring all that stuff. Has a roomy top section for other non photo stuff, lunch, book, clothes,..

    For every day use I have a LowePro Classified. I love it because it does not look like a camera bag at all. Shoulder bag that can hold all the lenses above minus the flash.

    At present avery overstuffed lowepro minitrekker backpack

    It's seriously well made and takes a lot of weight, but its really not designed to be used on a long walk with as much weight (the back support, straps and such are not geared up for carrying large loads on longer distances and lack sufficient padding).

    however its currently filled with
    Main compartment:
    Canon 400D with battery grip
    Canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS L (often connected to the camera but not always)
    Canon MPE 65mm macro
    Canon 17-55mm kit lens - my least used lens but its in the bag because its the only lens I have that under 70mm in focal length
    Sigma 150mm macro
    Sigma 70mm macro
    Sigma 1.4 teleconverter
    Canon 1.4 teleconverter
    Canon 580 EX2 flashgun

    The rest of the bag gets filled with all sorts of odds and important ends - and I use a 60AW slipknot pack on the side of the bag which holds a lot of other items - balanced out with a waterbottle slipknot addon the other side (quick access to water and it keeps it away from the camera gear). Although with the packs on the side the supplied waterproof cover for the bag no longer fits and I've had to purchase a sparate water cover for normal use (its bright yellow!)

    I like the bag however the straps are cheaply made, but the interior of the bag is nice.
