Hi - been doing a lot of thread reading and can't find exactly what I'm looking for - so, suggestions please.

I want a walk-around day bag, probably similar to a "Messenger" bag for a body (7D or 40D) with one attached lens (EF 24-105) but here is the complication. I would like to put the camera & lens in the bag with the right side up instead of the LCD screen up - I guess this would be horizontal but on the side.

I just want to reach into the bag and grab the right side (normal grip side) and pull the camera + lens up and out with my right hand. I know this is not normally what I have seen - most have the lens pointing straight down with the LCD on top and use both hands to lift the body up and out.

So far I haven't seen any pictures of a camera orientated this way in either the Crumpler or Lowepro photos - actually, they seem to show the LCD down in the bottom or top with the lens pointing up or down.

Since this is the "walk around" bag, I don't need the extra space for multiple lenses where you would normally put the attached lens into an empty tube/slot, pull out the other lens, etc.

Suggestion? Thanks.

It would work because the dividers are removable.

Have you looked at the timbuk2 snoop camera bags? I have the medium and it's pretty rad.


I have cameras and lenses that I use to take photographs.

What would work? Did you have a specific bag in mind?

This is exactly how I use my Crumpler 5MDH. I will try to take a picture of my setup tonight, but I arrange the dividers so the flash is on the bottom, one lens to the right and then the camera and attached lens on top. I find the 5MDH to be a perfect setup for a light walk around.

That would be great, if you have time.

Any thoughts on the Lowepro similar bags with the All Weather covers?

Thanks
