Hi all,
Im looking for a camerabag which is big enough to carry at least a 350D/50D with grip, 70-200 lens, a wide-angle lens, some primes, my Panasonic FZ28, filters batteries and -if possible- a bateryloader.
Am I looking for a real INexpensive bag, I want -of course- to carry my stuff save, without getting problems when somebody knocks against the bag, or can I buy a bit less expensive bag?
The shop-on-the-edge has some quite inexpensive big camerabags, but if you say I really have to buy a better one (there's always eBay!), let me know!
If you know a type of a bag, please, tell me.

Thanks!

Expensive, safe..... Pelican?

Is it for a specific long trip, or everyday use?
I suppose it depends how portable & easy to carry, you need it to be.

For everyday use, when I just have a longer walk-in-the-park. It has to be as inexpensive as possible.
It doesnt need to be very sturdy too btw.

Ill have a look at those Pelicans;)

EDIT
D'oh! I meant INexpensive!! :oops:
If possible Id rather have a bag than a case...

Thanks

Something from Kata, maybe? I do love my 3N1, lots of space and not that expensive.

I got a Lowepro Pro Runner 450aw and it is very good. It is not badly priced I got mine for around £70.

Do note that Lowepro bags seem to be cheaper in the UK than in the Netherlands or in Belgium. The Pro Runner 450 AW costs about € 200 here (at today's exchange rate that's £ 174.41).

What do you exactly want - a backpack/rucksack, a shoulder bag, a sling bag à la Slingshot 102/202/302 AW,...?

As far as backpacks are concerned, I would suggest these ones:
- the Flipside 400 AW,
- the Pro Runner 350 AW.

If you'd like a shoulder bag instead, I'd look at the Nova 200 AW :).

Personally I'd rather have a rucksack (or backpack, whichever you may prefer) with a nicely padded waist belt and shoulder straps, like the Flipside 400 AW or the Pro Runner 350 AW or 450 AW, than a shoulder bag. Especially when carrying heavier loads a rucksack is in my opinion the best way to go :).

I just bought a new bag today, it a tarmac 5585. Expedition 5X

http://www.tamrac.com/welcome.htm

I can use it as a daypack when walking around and take it bushwalking, it seems reasonable waterproof.
Its secure enough to take on as hand luggage and when travelling overseas.
I am a bit concerned with backpacks that are too easily accessed from the rear. I want to be able to carry passport and stuff like that while looking after my camera and lenses. This one had sufficient internal compartments to make it safe for important documents.

Was in Melbourne today and dropped in at the camera shops in the City just to see what sort of backpacks were available. I had not planned on buying anything, but liked this one and they had a 20% sale on it.
