Something from Billingham?

The Billingham Hadley Small or the Hadley Pro are both great. I like the Pro because of the handle and it comes in handy (pun)!


I'm a happy Canon SLR and Leica rangefinder user. bw!

I've just broken ranks again.
My d300s + grip with 18-200VR lens fits tightly in my brand new Billingham Hadley Digital bag. Thanks Rob S. at www.bigcameraworkshops​.com (external link) ! A gentleman who went out of his way to ensure I had differnet size bags to select from.
(In Cape Cod on vacation I had my Retro10 with me. Rain, drizzle, blowing sand. I don't like the Retro raincover -- leaves part of the back of the bag exposed. I tucked my dslr under my goretex raincoat leaving the Retro behind. Then, fell while walking on very uneven sidewalks. Camera came out unmarked. So my concerns -=- protection, waterproof, dust sealed are all resolved with the Digital. Sure it's a tight fit (looks like it has been sprayed on!))

Don't know if it will fit on your gear. I can't pack extra lenses, but I have a heck of a range with the 18-200 on a cropped camera. And it works so much better stopped down than I remember with my previous camera a d80.

Just trying to simplify my life. :)

For just the camera and the one lens you mention, why not use an R Strap (or similar)? Why have a bag at all? To me, the one lens minimal set up is for having the camera at the ready while walking around. Why stuff it in a bag? Keep your larger bag in the car for transport and to have more gear nearby. Of course, if you just need a reason to buy a new bag, I'll second the Domke suggestion. Always a good choice!

I intend to use a small bag for this set up to protect my camera. I am a woman with a toddler, so I have a big purse/diaper bag I tow around with me. I tend to just put the camera in this bag for a trip to the park because I don't want to have excess camera gear in my car that could be stolen. I also tend to have crumbled crackers or sippy cups in the bag. So, anyway, I want a small bag to take with me on occasions such as this. I can put the camera in my bag, protected from my toddler's messy things. Once I am at the park, I'll just carry the camera by the strap.

Thanks for all of the feedback. I appreciate everyone taking the time to put in their 2 cents. I bought a Lowepro bag yesterday (as stated in a previous reply) that fits my needs perfectly.

lacks_focus I have had an R strap on my dslr for some time. However, a near calamity convinced me to get a bag for mine. Others will make a different choice. I would have when I was younger.

I've enjoyed the R strap. It simplifies shooting.


(I've gone from being a working photograher to being a tourist. I still like shooter bags. Domke has been my choice too. I regret buying a TT Retro 10, and that was the bag I took with me. Very comfortable, but large. And I don't like the raincover. YMMV.)

Well done! Glad you found a bag that meets your needs.

When I started shooting with a Canon P&S as my second camera, someone here suggested carrying the camera in ziplock bag. Worked for him! I didn't do it, and ended up with dust on the sensor of my G9. Should have listened.

Best,

Hmmmm...

Ha, my “toddlers” are now 16 and 18 and wouldn’t be seen with me, especially if I was lugging a camera around... Yeah, I'd get a small bag in your case too, even if it was only a zip lock.

Ha, that looks exactly like the Lowepro Toploader that I use and was going to recommend.

Yeah, I like the CaseLogic because it has a semi-hard, water-proof base (that allows the bag to stand upright) and the CL has a pretty interesting hammock system that suspends you camera body in the bag...
