Hey all,

I recently had my 50d converted to Infrared and upgraded to a 5D mkII (Which is AMAZING :D).
I'd like to be able to bring along both bodies ready to shoot (lenes on) and an additional 2-3 lenses but I don't want to be carrying around a HUGE backpack all day. I'd prefer a sling bag or medium sized backpack that would be able to do this. Easy access to both bodies would be ideal.

Anyone have a similar setup (likes to shoot two bodies without fumbling around with lens switches)? If so, what bag do you use? Anybody have any suggestions?

Thanks!


Glade

Try a Domke F2 or (if ungripped) F-802 (which will need the 720-230 insert; it doesn't include an insert; the F2 does).

Not what you want, but I keep my lens on the camera and out. I keep my second body in the bag without a lens on it. I use the DOMKE F2. I love the comfort and the easy access to everything. I can change lenses or get my other camera ready without setting the bag down.

It amazingly holds SO much crap too. I have owned 6-8 other bags and I keep going back to the Domke.

Thanks for the input guys. I want to be able to have this bag on me for a few hours at a time (urban and hiking environments) and so the shoulder strap design wouldn't be too comfortable with all that gear in it after a while. Although, I agree, nothing beats the accessibility of shoulder bags.

I think I'm going to check out the Lowepro Flipside 400 as this has the easy access "flip" funtion and looks like it will be able to fit two bodies w/ lenses on + a few more lenses and maybe even my 430EX II. I'll probably swing by my local camera shop before ordering online though, just to make sure.

Thanks again!

Forget LowePro, look at the TT Streetwalker HD, will carry everything plus a 15" laptop. Very comfortable, fits in airplane overhead, has a tripod strap.

Another vote for the TT Streetwalker HD. The size of this backpack is not that huge compared to a previous Lowepro I had and it can carry 2 bodies with lenses and hood attach, ready to shoot. I just got this bag and love it. It fits my Canon 1D Mark II with a 70-200 2.8 IS with hood and 5D MII ungrip with 17-40 with hood. There are spaces for additional lenses if needed depending on how I arrange it and lots of pockets to use for additional items. I find this bag comfortable to carry compared to a shoulder bag when fully packed.
