I use a BlackRapid
strap to carry my camera while walking around. This works fine if I stick with my walk-around lens, but if I want an extra lens or two available, I've just been keeping them in cargo pockets, which is not the most comfortable for walking around. I have a backpack for my camera equipment while traveling, but it wouldn't be very accessible while walking around, and it's much larger than I need to carry just an extra lens or two.
I'm looking for a sling bag. The thing is, most bags I've seen (such as the LowePro Zoom 1, suggested in Gordon's list of accessories), are meant for a camera. I would want to carry around my EF-S 10-22mm and my EF 85mm, maybe an extra CF card or two, and a wireless remote. I would imagine the two lenses should be stored vertically and separated by padding (this separating padding is what's missing on top-loading bags I've seen so far that are meant for a camera). Of course, I don't need to put the wireless remote and CF cards in the lens bag. Those can be stored just as easily in the BlackRapid strap itself.
It seems that this LowePro lens bag
would be big enough for any one of three lenses, but I don't see a similar product for two lenses. And I could use the SlipLock to attach to the MBAG80N
which I just ordered if I want to carry my tripod around. (Although if I don't want to carry my tripod around, I'd have to also buy a separate strap to use.)
Can anybody recommend a bag that would meet my particular needs? I'm hoping to spend roughly $30-$40, but I'd spend a little more if it's really necessary.
P.S. In before ThinkTank Modular system (or similar products). I'd really prefer the sling bag to the belt system, and I would imagine two separate lens bags would be bulkier and heavier than one bag meant for two lenses. Also, to buy the belt plus two lens bags would cost nearly $100, which seems excessive for my basic needs.
