There is no such thing as "the perfect bag" - it is a myth, a holy grail, a fantasy.

:lol: Agreed , there are too many variables but that does not stop us from searching :rolleyes::wink:

Just when I think I have a bag that will meet my needs - I buy another lens and it all goes out the window. So far the perfect bag is a compromise between what I want to shoot, how much it can carry - and how long I want to carry it for. There are days when a shoulder bag is perfect - and others where two bags are not enough.

impossible because every occasion is different. i have a few actual camera bags, the rest are assorted backpacks, slings, duffels, sleeves, pouches, hard/soft cases etc. my system is to find appropriate combinations... nothing new of course.

that said, i'm *still* looking for that stylish (Crumpler or other) minimal day bag :p

...and i still don't have a 'carry all' case but i will soon.

I have 3 perfect soft bags and two perfect Pelican cases! That's for the cameras and lenses. The tripods, lights, audio and other gear have their own cases. Really just depends on the gig. Though my Kata extra large bag gets the call most often as it has a roller system and is a LOT lighter than the Pelican.

F-3x is so functional, but it's just boring. prolly will never sell it though.

Same here, i tried to sell my F3xlookalike, but couldn't. They're just so useful. Instead, i bought another F3x, but a real one this time.

The Domke copies are actually tough bags, but nowadays i minimize my Made in China purchases due to the awful human rights record of the Chinese government.

I think the F-3x is one of those almost perfectly designed bags, i hope Domke will include a similar design in their Next Gen line-up, and other Domke classics too...

My perfect bag isnt a bag at all - its a belt. I consider it perfect, not because it can carry everything I own, but because it can carry everything I want for a day, minus any shoulder pain that comes with the burden of carrying a shoulder bag filled with gear around.

I have the ThinkTank pro speedbelt with three attachments, one for my tele, another that will fit either my 85 or 24-105 (and subsequently any lens that is smaller than the 85) and the third attachment is a lowepro case that will hold just my camera, grip attached. This thing is a life saver. Since it sits on my hips, there is no strain whatsoever.

Me, too. Everything is in front of me where I usually want it, or in back out of the way. It doesn't swing from my shoulder, & doesn't cover my back & make me sweat in the Summer.

See post #32 or the Tamrac belt in Post #68.
Show me your camera bag

Since it sits on my hips, there is no strain whatsoever.

Let's hope it doesn't make your... nevermind. ;)

Ever use the pro speed belt for hiking? I have been thinking of a backpack but I already have a digital holster 20 v2 ( That I think will attach ) and a few TT pouches that I keep on my Retro 30 bag. This may be a good alternative.

I'm happy with mine, I havn't gone hiking with it. Downtown outings mostly so far, I havn't had it that long.

Its a pretty standard sized one in width so because of that I was able to fit a lowepro attachment without an issue - its nice not to be limited to just the thinktank modules. I still have my Retro 20 for everything else if I need all that - usually on trips and such. For day outings where I know what Ill be bringing, the belt is perfect.

I'm in the possession of two great camera bags - the Billingham Hadley Pro and Retrospective 10. Not sure if I'm keeping the Retrospective 10, however, as someone pointed out the side pockets are practically useless unless you add one of their modular attachments ($$$). It will, however, be good for a gripped camera if I ever do upgrade... Decisions, decisions...

If you do not use a grip you would probably be much happier with the 7.
