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).

I have the newer 6MDH and it looks the same on the inside of the bag as the one you posted (cool walkthrough btw!).

i'll try to get some pics up for reference when i get a chance.

I bought the 8MDH and it carries my 50D gripped with 100-400 attached (hood reversed) and several other lenses, my P-3000 and numerous accessories. plenty of room - but fully loaded it is heavy. But I love it as it is easier to carry around than my backpack.


Thanks , Mike :),

Pics of my new 6MDH (taken with my Canon P&S so forgive the lack of quality!)

I went with the 6MDH in silver. It's loaded with:
5D Mark 2
24-70L
70-300
580EX II
Spare batteries, CF and card reader
Wireless shutter release and receiver
filters and a lens pen.

I can mount either lens to the body, though the 24-70 fits better. The bag is pretty darn full, not quite stuffed, but it's the perfect size for when I don't want to carry the Kata 3n1-30.

Me too just bought the 4MDH from a fellow POTN user :D for my XS, kit and 50mm! :D can't wait! :D

Cool, you won't be disappointed. Won't be my last crumpler purchase I'm sure.

Crumpler rules. I have two of the older style 5MDH and 6MDH, love'em.
They look cool and do their job...I don't ask for more.

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!

I think the third lens might be pushing it... 1D III w/24-70 attached, 70-200 and either 17-40 or the flash would fit very easily. I reckon you may be able to squash all that in but it'd really be squashing. Perhaps less so if you didn't have the hood on the 70-200 or 100-400.

I currently own the 6MDH and will be making a trip to Europe next month. Since the European version / models look and are designed better, I've already located the nearest Crumpler store. I'm looking to buy the "Master Delhi" model. Basically it's like the MDH series, but the camera compartment is removable and the flap is made of leather. Looks really cool!

I've been going back and forth with the 6 Million Dollar Home and the Domke f-803 in my head for a long time now. I have the Keystone which is an ok backpack but I wanted a messenger bag for quicker access to my things when I'm walking around. The one thing that bothers me about the Crumpler is that they look like massive wrecking balls when I see pictures of people actually wearing them in Flickr pictures and what not. Are they comfortable walking through tight crowded places or the city when they're 7 inches wide?

_aravena, badgerW, Jim G, thanks for the info/help. The 3rd lens is more just wishful thinking atm (don't even have the 17-40 yet).

Jim G, just looked over your review, and I think I'm just about sold on it, great writeup! Was looking at the grey/red one, but after all the pictures you posted thinking about the black one now arg!

Had another question, kind of a stupid one really, and not crumpler specific... When wearing a shoulder bag and one has there camera out, do you also wear the camera on your shoulder (either same or other), or around your neck? I figure this is more of a personal preference, but was just curious.

Interesting. Never saw one of these before. Bag looks nice but can't say I like the circa 70's racing strip down the front. And the strap looks a lot different. Whats up with the huge buckle thing?

I really like this color combo. :D

Thanks! it was between this color or the Grey/Red combo! i thought the brown would be more suited for 'this-is-not-a-camera-bag' walking around :)
