Sorry you've had such bad luck in the past. Don't give up! And don't get discouraged when things break or go bad. It'll happen to everyone at some point. Technology is a pain like that. Things'll break, get dented, dirty, whatever. Bags and cameras are replaceable. Photos are not. :D

LOL, I don't really think of zippers as technology :D

Add me to the list of folks that had the Slingshot and was disappointed.

guys, i noticed nobody is using the crumpler back packs. is it because these are meant for camera and lap tops?

I really want a back pack to fit

5d mk II (not gripped)
24-105
580 ex
one other lense (17-40?)

I have a 5mdh, but im finding its hard to carry.

thanks!!

I agree with others, I think the Crumpler backpacks are too expensive to consider.

I have the Kata 3n1-30 sling/backpack bag (getting my 6MDH soon for days when I want to carry a small bag) and that gear would easily fit into it. The 3n1-20 might hold it too. The Kata's very comfortable, fast access, and offers very good protection.

The backpack I've got is the Tamrac Adventure 9. It's great, and I don't plan on selling it, but I wanted a shoulder pack for the times I can't carry a backpack.

I have a 4 million dollar bag and I love it! I only have a 1000D (XS) and the 18-55 IS lens but it's perfect for me. I have no doubt that in time I will expand with lenses etc. but in the meantime it means I don't lug around unnecessary extras when travelling.

Yep - the 4 MDH is a great bag for this setup. I have an XT with the 17-85IS and a flash and it is perfect for it.

I have been looking for a bag to hold two camera bodies for a while.
I need the bag to hold:
One gripped 40d with 17-55 f/2.8 with hood reversed.
One gripped 40d with 70-200 f/2.8 IS with hood reversed.
Two 580EXII flashes (maybe a third SB24 flash if it can fit.. about the same size as a 580EXII)
Cybersyncs- 1 transmitter, 3 receivers.
Twelve spare double A batteries
Four spare 40d batteries.
Rocket Blower.

I was looking at a Domke F2 bag, but I don't like how the cameras would be laid out in the bag and have to squash down parts of the inserts etc.

Would an 8 million dollar home work for me?

I've been using a Karachi Outpost for about a year now, and absolutely love it. It wasn't cheap, but it's been worth every penny.

I've always liked the Karachi Outpost. Always thought about picking one up. In fact I don't own any backpacks but I'm getting to the point where I'm gonna need one.

It is pricey but I thought a 6MDH was too. The quality is veryy apparent.

I had a Keystone backpack, but I found it frustrating to take the thing off and put it on the floor every time I needed to access it. I switched to the 7MDH which, surprisingly, carries more than the Keystone did.

I have not seen the 8MDH in person, but this sounds feasible to me, except for possibly the Rocket Blower. Put the gripped cameras + lenses on either side, lenses down, and stack the flashes on top of each other in the middle. Batteries and Cybersyncs underneath the 17-55 and/or in the front pocket. Rocket Blower... I dunno, maybe it could fit under the flashes.

That's the thing. It's built like a tank. I know that I'll never need to buy a new backpack, and even with the amount I've used it, you can't really tell it from new.

Been looking for a bag of sorts for a bit now, and as of late, I keep coming back to the 6MDH...

I've seen Cannoneric's post (#454) with the 1D, 17-40, 70-200 and flash (kinda what has me wanting the 6mdh more now), and I'm curious if other think either of the following setups would fit in a 6MDH without much issue... Or if I should look at the 7MDH instead...

Setup 1:
1D3 w/ 24-70 (hood reversed) attached, 70-200, 17-40, 430ex2.

Setup 2:
1D3 w/ 24-70 (hood reversed) attached, 100-400, 17-40, 430ex2.

And a possible 3rd is to swap a lens around for the 100mm macro...

Or would the 3rd lens (17-40 or 100 macro) be pushing it?

Thanks!

It might be pushing it, idk since the 6MDH is the only Crumpler bag I've haven't seen (in the MDH series) but I know the 7MDH would seem empty with only that. maybe just to me since mine is stuffed so full that seems so little.

I think the 6 would work for you. Especially if you're talking the 70-200/4, although I think you're probably talking the 70-200/2.8. Which should still work, although I think things would be tight. Here's my 6MDH walkthrough (external link) which should give you a good idea, at least with the older style of 6MDH. I think the new one is slightly smaller though, so to be safe I would go with the 7MDH (especially since you never know when you are going to add more gear).

My mistake, forgot to mention which 70-200 version. Wish it was the 2.8 IS :D but, it's the f/4 IS (in my sig). Also, I'd be after the newer version. Gonna take a look through your 6MDH walkthrough, thanks.

I'll prob add more gear next year, but at the same time, I'd rather not carry everything with me (as much as I'd love to); and I don't know if its just my eyes playing tricks on me, but it seems like the 7MDH is on the largish size.
