Hi guys,

New to the forum. I just bought a 60D today with the 18-135mm kit lens and I need a bag to store my camera in. What bags do you recommend for me? I may be storing another lens or 2 and a shotgun mic.

Thanks!

welcome to POTN. Many of us have been through a few bags that didn't work.... and have a growing collection of bags that do work for different applications. I've tried backpacks, a couple shoulder bags and ended up following the advice of one of the moderators here who has years and years of experience. Jon recommends Domke bags. I really like my Domke F-1X shoulder bag. I got the 720-230 insert so I can fit my 60D on one end with the lens parallel to the insert. I also use their US Post Office shoulder pad.

Now, this might be more than you want to spend. The F-1X would give you room to grow as you add a flash, a few lenses, extra batteries, and some filters. The gear list sort of expands over time.

Unfortunately, the best way to get an answer is to take the equipment to an an actual store and put it in a real bag an find if it fits.

Now, from a guess, there's a chance that a standard Canon bag (external link) may offer what you want. And, you might want to see what Lowepro offers. (external link)

I use this Case Logic SLRC-206, it's not bad and I like it. It carries my gripped 60D, laptop, lenses and other stuff. It is a tight fit with the battery grip on.

However, now that I've picked up a new massive laptop ( Asus G75vw ) I'm going to get another bag.

Welcome.

As Phoenixkh stated, I think we all have multiple bags depending on what we are doing and where we are going. If on vacation and walking around all day you may prefer a bag that will hold just the camera, attached lens and maybe another lens...(at most) because an all day adventure will get heavy after a very short time. Also, you may want to consider if you plan to buy a grip for the camera as this adds some girth to the camera making for a snug fit or no fit depending on the bag.

Best recommendation is as suggested above, take your gear with you and "Try them On". Lowepro also has a BAGFINDER on their website to help narrow down your needs and be found at:

Good luck. Trust me, after a year you'll have more than 1 bag..:)

On my fifth bag. It seems that being a photog includes collecting bags :) I got to see the Domke F-2 in person for the first time, last night. I love it. Almost bought it. But, considering I'm rebuilding my gear I don't need it just yet. But man...I almost fell in love with that bag the instant I picked it up. Will be picking one up, in the near future once I have some more stuff to carry.

In the meantime I was able to snag a Timbuk2 small in all black for $52 on clearance. It comes without any inserts. However, they make an insert for it and I ordered one off Amazon for $40 as well. So far I like the way this bag hangs. Still trying it out, but just thought I'd throw that out there to further complicate the already complicated world of camera bags.



I am I
