Summary: Today there is plenty of gear on the market to carry your gear disassembled. However, there are actually very few carry systems that could take a large DSLR with battery grip and lens attached, as well as a few extra accessories (another lens or two, external flash, etc.) while providing convenient access to take the camera in and out for shooting and without broadcasting "camera bag" to the whole world. This bag is just that.
Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Summary: Purchased (£115) to carry a combination of formats, Bronica ETRSi and Canon EF systems. Easily able to accomodate both. Bag is very deep, able to stack lenses in included padded case then sit camera body on top. Front pockets swallow everything from 550 flash to stacks of P series filters, can even fit an additional SLR body (EOS50 with grip).
Pros: Adaptability, from a small outfit with travel / business material to a semi pro set up, will swallow it all. Excelent protection and security.
Cons: Shoulder strap, remains stiff and cuts in under heavy loads even with padded section, light colour can show marks easily. Tends to sit away from body rather than "moulding" around hips.
Summary: For what I paid, it included shipping, tripod straps, backpacking harness and the luggage tag. The bag itself comes with the shoulder pad and waist strap. I think it is one of the best designed camera bag ever made with the best material and quality available. It is also a great laptop bag. The Pakington is the ideal bag for business/photography travellers. It carrys my set of G2 with 4lenses, my DC 4800 plus bits and pieces.
Pros: Quality, size, design...and the list goes on.
Summary: With ever stricter airline carry-on regulation, this slimline bag is a welcome addition. The top load format is fast to access, and it it offers absolutely excellent quality protection (oh, yes - it looks great too). This is a really fine product, and easily accommodates (my own travel outfit): 1 X AF Nikkor camera body (it will take an F5) 20-35 2.8 80-200 2.8 70-180 Zoom Micro-Nikkor SB-27 Speedlight 1.4 and 2 X teleconverter Filters, spare batteries, map, papers, etc.
Summary: What looks like an old fashioned fishing satchel is an excellent photo bag, capable of holding a DSLR/mirrorless camera with a good range of lenses, flash gun, spare batteries etc along with a large tablet or 13 inch laptop comfortably. Also the deep shape means it does not 'topple' when loaded up as some of the older, squarer Billingham bags did.Kit is easy to get at quickly and having tested it out in bad weather on the North York Moors, the bag is rain proof!
Pros: Adaptable, Comfortable Strap, Durable, Good Protection, Lightweight
