I have a very large non photo backpack...It is very large, but I use it for school...However, when I go away I want to bring it with my photo equipment...What dividers should I buy in order to convert it into a photo back pack

I have the National Geographic Medium backpack but sometimes I'll use my regular backpack. I use a soft sided (6 pack size) cooler for my camera with a small to medium lens attached. Depending on your backpack you can fit 2 or 3 of these inside. They are relatively cheap $5.00 - $10.00 range. I'll use a towel to wrap other items if necessary.

You could use Domke inserts, and also Domke wraps for when more than one thing will fit within a single insert. And/or you can custom fabricate dividers by buying a camping ground pad from a sporting goods or Kmart and using a razor blade or Xacto knife to partially slice thru and fold into compartments. I did all of the above, when I wanted to use a ordinary daypack and convert it into a innocent looking pack to hold my medium formal SLR kit, for travelling about South America on an extended holiday in the 90's.

depending on how your backpack opens up, i dont think there will be a convenient way to store your gear unless you have wraps or something.
