  • Excerpt: The material use can be the best, and it is water proof. The space in side is very big. It can nicely fit on my shoulder and I feel confotable when I carry 7D with 24-70mm f2.8, 70-200mm f1.2, and 50mm.there is just one thing that should improve is that the super flex partition with the bag cannot...

25 November 2011
  • Excerpt: For years I lusted after the classic Billingham 550 camera bag. Finally, after a trip to Africa during which I had to divide my camera gear between two too-small bags, I ordered one with some trepidation. Would it live up to the hype? It did.
  • Pros: Good dust protection, Strong Construction, Superb craftsmanship, Swallows a lot of gear, Well Padded
  • Cons: Inadequate pocket flaps

550 shoulder bag, fantastic

Ron, B&H Photo
21 November 2011
  • Excerpt: This is a fantastic shoulder bag, I carry my D3x + 3 Zeiss lens and a Nikon 70-200 lens, 2 flash units and bits of other gear. Everything fits just right, I love this bag, I changed from a Temba shootout, large shoulder bag as there wasn't enough room for my gear but the Billinham fits nicely.
  • Pros: Best bag ever, Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Strong Construction, Well Padded

  • Excerpt: Had one of these many years ago and sold it. Regretted it and bought one again! Can get heavy if you load it up, but it's a classic bag. Hard wearing.

My Favorite Bag!

Photographer, B&H Photo
24 May 2007
  • Excerpt: As a woman photographer, I always deserved to carry a camera bag that looks good and features perfectly as a camera bag. I've tried so many bags, Billingham is the ultimate winner for me. I mean it DOES have some Cons.

Photography Review
3 November 2000
  • Summary: The bag is waterproof, although water seeps in around the lug holes at the bottom, but doesn't get very far. The size means you chuck more equipment in than you realistically need, but that's not the bag's problem.
  • Pros: Waterproof - has stood in a foot of water in the sea., Built to last - used and abused it for eight years now., Looks good - also used as an overnight bag...
  • Cons: Could be quicker to open, like the 445, and it could use more closed pockets and pouches, but that's it.
