Im just curious, does anyone ever use a camera bag that was not specifically designed to hold camera equipment?

Im a bit wary of keeping my camera in a normal back pack but im sure it would be ok as they are designed to be generally tough. Maby I should wrap it up in something to protect it.

Yeah, I would. You could always pick up a cheap SLR camera bag (like http://bristol.gumtree.com/posting_imag ... _big__.jpg) and stuff that with your camera in your backpack.

You can buy inserts that turn any ordinary bag into a camera bag. While I'm sure you can use any bag you have lying around, it's extra reassurance to know that the bag will protect the camera if needed.
