Maybe it's because I'm a noob but I've been sitting here trying to fit everything in my 6MDH for the past 30min. Here is what I got.

60D gripped w/ 24-70L attached lens hood reversed
tokina 11-16 w/ hood reversed
430ex II w/o pouch
gary fong lightsphere collapsible w/ dome

Does anyone happen to have the stuff that I have and can take a picture of it to show me how you configured it? I got everything to fit but I can't close the freakin bag lol.

Any input is great!

Thanks (:

Here's a video showing a gripped 7D with a 70-200 f/2.8L and flash in a 6 MDH:

Not quite sure how much more space a Fong lightsphere takes up.

Whilst I dont own a 6MDH. I would think the fong dong probably takes up a heap of room. Does everything fit without it? Maybe look into something more compact for a diffuser?

Have you tried placing smaller items "inside" the Fong to save space? It is quite large. My own personal opinion is that you are better without it..... but that's another story...;)

The Fong fits fine in the front velcro compartment after it's collapsed...

...it's just the grip on the 60D that's causing the problem. I thought it wouldn't be a problem considering I've seen people put 1D series in this bag with similar glasses.

But what I came up with is to offset the camera to one side and have the tokina 11-16 and the 430ex II on one side. The Tokina now sits on top of the 430ex II with the included flaps as cushion so it doesn't damage the flash or the lens.

Try turning the 60D so that the bottom of the grip faces the velco pocket. Take your tokina lens without the hood turn in side ways so the lens cap faces the back of the bag and the bottom cap faces the front and stick in a side section. Put the 430 on the back right side standing straight up with the tokina hood infront of it. You should also be able to fit the gary fong hood on that side as well. Thats not really that much gear for that bag.

thank you so much! I have a similar setup except I put the 430 on the bottom and the tokina flat on top and the gary fong sits perfectly on top of my tokina. Thanks again! (:
