Yes, thank you for the pics AGPHOTOGRAPHY/Abram - very helpful to further see the texture of the new material.
Think Tank CITY WALKER 20 (with an ID: 599 cubic inch), which sounds like it is great for you, may be a bit too small for me, but the Think Tank CITY WALKER 30 (with ID: 863 cubic inch; about the same as the economical Lowepro NOVA 200AW) may have a bit more room & be another alternative bag for a two-camera, walk-a-bout bag.

Thanks again for the good revealing pics.

Mary

Not a problem, I have several other pics available, and I did a writeup here: http://www.thephoblogr​apher.com …think-tank-citywalker-20/ (external link)

It's a surprisingly large bag actually. I can fit a 5D and all 5 of my lenses in there.

^^^ Cool review and it looks like a nice bag, so far ThinkTank wasn't really for me, but this one looks pretty interesting.

Oh good question! I didn't think to try removing the padding from my Retro bags (I have the 10 and the 7). It's very possible that it would indeed fit, but the CW series is lined with velcro to hold the insert in place I'll have to experiment and try that out, though I'm not sure if you can buy the insert on its own from Think Tank. I could ask them for you (I have some contacts there)

I've got a rocket blower too, kind of want one of the mini ones as I don't like carrying the big one around, I usually leave it in my roller bag unless I really need it.

I'm kinda bad, I just let my stuff get all dusty / dirty while I'm shooting, and I'll clean it when I get home, just noticed however that both of my cameras have sensor dust the other day so I'm gonna have to do something about that ;)

@Alex - Ah it's good to hear from another tall fellow, don't you enjoy the nice long straps that Think Tank provides?

That's what I've decided to do as well. Leave the rocket blower at home and just clean my lenses on occasion (eg after going out with my gear). I can always use my lens pen's brush if anything, although I hear that can scratch a lens too?

If it fits, please do! I'm trying to find an easy way to make my R20 convertible between camera bag and day bag, since ripping the inserts out all the time is an annoyance

Have you considered trying any of the backpack inserts? Or perhaps a Tenba insert from their Messenger bag?

I don't have a Retro bag. Sold mine for a Speed Racer after my Retro10 disappointed me on a trip.

F.Y.I… If this isn’t too “girlie” for you these are small & effective and I prefer it to a lenspen (& have one in every one of my camera bags, when rocket blowers are too big).

If too “girlie”, there are always these (however this doesn’t have a protective cap):

AGPHOTOGRAPHY/Abram - thanks for the link to your good review of the TT CITY WALKER 20!

I just carry a lenspen (with the brush attachment) with me just in case... although I never have had an occasion to use it outside the house. When traveling, I just leave the rocket blower in the hotel room. I can always come back at the end of the day and clean the lens if needed.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Hey, I have 60D too just getting started & was wondering if that eye cup is better than the one it comes with? I always liked the shape but was afraid to try because its view finder & i don't want something that will mess up my view.

The HoodEye only replaces the external portion of the original eye cup, not the entire view finder. I really like it for blocking out a little more light. It works fine with my glasses, too.

I love this part, being able to remove the camera bucket so quickly makes this a very versatile bag when I want to use it to carry other stuff, I can still throw a camera in there with my jacket and it'll still be relatively safe.

I do not need a new bag I do not need a new bag I do not need a new bag I do not need a new bag I do not need a new bag I do not need a new bag.. . . . .

I really like the looks of that CityWalker, though. And there are days my Timbuk2 and Crumpers just don't quite work for what I need. . . Off I go to find more info on that bag. Sigh.
