I'm going to Virginia in September and I don't have a proper camera bag that fits like a backpack, I'm planning on bringing 2 of my cameras and up to 6 lenses, is there also a bag that can hold 3 cameras? 2 SLR and 1 DSLR and up to 9 lenses (6 lenses since each camera always has a lens attached to it

I use a Tamrac Expedition 6. With that i can get two bodies, 70-200 F2.8 vrII, and several other lenses, flashguns, etc. Plus a 17"laptop.

When I absolutely must carry everything, it goes in the LowePro Vertex 300AW. This bag fits so much that when full, you have to stand it upright on a table and back into it. :lol:

In mine, I carry 2 DSLRs, Could Easily hold a third body with some configuring of the compartments, 2 flashes (SB-700). 1 ring flash, A CN-160 LED panel (small) a 35mm, 50mm, 11-14, 28-80, 28-125, 125-500, extension tubes, a set of pocket wizards, 10inch tablet for shooting tethered, remote, and misc stuff (back up cards, batteries, filters, collapsible round flash diffuser, notebook) and tripod. that's the bulk of it, but I actually have room for more if need be.

I'll keep that and the Tamrac in mind when it's time to do some shopping, I should've picked one up when Wolf Camera was going out of business, I did pick up a nice tripod though, should've gotten a bag when they were 75% off

I didn't get THAT great a deal, but payed about $100 less than retail, new. 75% of retail would have been stellar.

If you're flying, I wouldn' DREAM of carrying that much gear unless it was in an airline-compatible, crush-proof, very well padded, case. So, if you really want to carry that much gear, plan on getting/borrowing such a case, When I fly, if I can't carry my gear on board, it doesn't go. So I limit myself to 1 body and 3 lenses.

On the other hand, if you are driving, consider getting a sufficiently large rolling suitcase and several appropriate camera bag liners to put in it. I use a smallish, rectangular 'gym bag' with 3 zipper pockets from Walmart with an insert to safely carry what I need on a shoot-by-shoot basis - 1 body, 1 flash, 3 lenses + miscellaneous. I'm thinking that could be 'scaled up' to carry significantly more if needed.

What about Insurance in case something happens to your bag while the airport/airline has it.

You think choosing a lens or a camera is a hard thing? Camera bags are much, much harder to get the one you will like.
