Hi folks. Noob to the whole photography world. Just got my first DSLR Canon Rebel T2i with kit lens. I'm looking for a good small camera case to fit my t2i with kit lens + an additional lens, accessories. Something not too big that I can put into my Northface Surge backpack.

I was considering the Lowepro Toploader Zoom 50 AW

Any thoughts of that bag for my needs? Any other suggestions? The Zoom 55 AW may also be good if I buy a larger lens in the future, but I'm afraid it may be too big...

I'm looking to spend about $50...maybe up to $75 if it fits my needs perfectly...

Thanks!

You can also go with an insert. I've got a Mountainsmith Kit Cube. I use it in all of my backpacks and messenger bags. It was the smallest insert I could find that still had adjustable compartments and well padded. It's also pretty inexpensive at $30ish

The bag that you linked probably wouldn't be able to fit an additional lens. They are usually big enough to fit the camera facing down with a lens attached. I've also got the same style bag in a Tamrac Digital Zoom 4. It's perfect for walking around with only my camera and it is small enough to shove into a backpack. It'll hold an extra battery, memory cards, and a small blower/brush combo but that's about it.

Thanks I'll take a look. The reason why I thought it may fit an additional smaller lens is from this picture from the Lowepro Zoom 2 Review. Not sure if the one I'm interested is smaller? https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=871087

So you want a bag or just a cover? I have one of the Zing skins that can fit to whatever set up you have and is small. Actually, I have holsters, cloths, skins, etc. If I carry a backpack I take the camera in a holster anyway because the Think Tanks are that good.

I want a small bag...the thinktanks look good...I guess it's difficult for me to gauge unless I see the bags in person. Thanks for the suggestions

I just went to Fry's to check out their limited selections...the Lowepro Rezo 140 AW looks like it would fit my needs perfectly...big enough for my T2i with kit lens and will likely fit a lens of the same size or slightly larger on the side...searched online and found a good deal on the Rezo 160 AW, which was even cheaper than the 140 AW so I will be picking that up tomorrow or Friday and see how that works for me....

You should look at the F-Stop ICUs as well. Great packs for hiking with gear and they come in several sizes.
