Can anyone recommend a small, yet spacious backpack to fit the following... 40D, 50mm f/1.4, 17-40, 70-200 f4, and some small accessories? Looking to have space for extra things such as tshirts, light jacket, etc. I'm getting the Flipside 400 AW for Christmas, but looking for a 2nd bag that is a lot smaller when going through the city, car rides, etc when the big Flipside 400 isn't needed. Narrowed it down to the Flipside 200, Fastpack 250, or possibly a Tamrac Adventure 6, but any other suggestions are excepted :D.

Thanks!

Have you taken a look at the Canon 200EGexternal link? I used to have that backpack and it was pretty spacious for its size, should fit all of those lenses.

Looks nice, but I'm looking for something a little more slim and low key.

These aren't very large but you may like the Kata Prism

Try the Kata 3N1-20 then, should be able to carry the 40D+70-200f4 mounted, and theres room for the 50 1.4 and the 17-40. and multiple other accessories. Also the top compartment will hold your tshirt and light jacket.

Is that the sling one? Not a huge fan of them. Prefer a normal backpack style.

Its a backpack, but the straps are unclippable to either be worn as a sling, or as a cross strap, which allows you to swing it around as a sling if you want too.

Check them out, I tried the 3n1-20 but it wouldn't fit my gripped 30D+70-200 2.8IS with hood reversed, the 3n1-30 fit fine, i'm sure it would fit the f4 without any problems.

Did you use natural light on this? When I did the same thing it seems I got alot more reflection from the flash. Seems like your transparency looks alot better.

Ill have to try my flash like that. Right now its stored on top of where your 24-70 is.

I like the Kata bags but I'm concerned about the fact that they look just like camera bags. I've seen multiple people get robbed via snatch-and-grab and every single one of them had bags like the 3n1 that just screamed out "take me I have a camera inside". In Italy alone this past Summer I witnessed 2 such events, one in Palermo and the other in Messina. In Bari some punk tried to steal my walled by ripping off my back pocket (I don't keep it there). When he failed he just ran off and didn't event attempt to go for my bag and at the time I had it on one shoulder (not a good idea but I was trying to dry the sweat off my back). Why Kata chose this kind of look I have not clue, otherwise it looks like a great and very modular bag. BTW I say this because the 467i looks nothing like a camera bag.

One reason I've always stuck with Tamrac is most of there bags look like book bags and don't scream expensive camera equipment. I like the Lowepro fast pack series (200 and larger) for the same reason. I tend to rough them up just a bit and put a punkish patch over the logo so it looks like stuff that's not worth stealing. Granted I stay in hostels and traveled in areas known for petty crime the last few years (Spain, Italy, Brazil, Jamaica) so I went prepared.

It's a bit tough for the bag manufacturers.

A large part of their customers wants flashy bags to show off the equipment.

And then a selected few customers wants non-obtrusive lenses, and bags that looks like "just any" bag.

When touristing, I most definitely wants some form of anonymity.

But bags are not the only problem. The 5Dmk2 strap explicitly tells the camera model. I don't think it is too good that people can see what camera someone has from a long distance away. It is hard enough that people always notices white lenses, even if they hardly know which way to hold a camera.

Everything is actually pretty snug. This is just my case to hold the gear at home.

I got a 1650 as an early Christmas present. I need to rethink the layout though. I see you have two bodies ready to shoot. That's a good idea.
