Excerpt: Holds just what I need for quick, get-up-and-go kind of photography. This holds my DSLR with telephoto lens attached (or alternatively, my film SLR with lens attached), two extra small lenses (a maximum of three per slot, depending on the size of the lenses - just note that you have to stack smaller lenses, and there won't be any padding in between stacked lenses), my macro filter, my speedlite (w/ flash bounce), all of my cords, my ion battery charger, my filters, my...
Excerpt: This is a n awsome bag. My favorie part of the bag is an area to store my iPad. Comfortable holds camera and two lens' It is a little tough to pull out a lens or anything else without removing the camera first.
Pros: Comfortable Strap, Durable, Good Protection, Ipadbook Area
Excerpt: Picked this up for a vacation, and it will cetainly force you to select carefully what you carry with you! A 70-200/2.8 will NOT fit if attached to the body, but will as a separate lens. The tripod collar will crowd things a lot, especially if you have a QR plate on it. I managed to fit: a Canon 50d with 24-105/4L IS attached; a 70-200/2.8L, 50/1.4 and a 1.4tc. The camera and lens must lay on edge to fit, the 50 and 1.4tc are on the very bottom under 2 separators.
Pros: Comfortable Strap, Compact, Durable, Good Protection, Lightweight
Excerpt: It was well built but it is very tight for my 60D woth 18-135 attached and 70-200 F4 and the flash. Have not had the chance to really put it to use yet. Now it is 6.2 x 13.5 x 10.5, and it will be perfect if it was 7" deep instead of 6.2". Check to make sure your gears will fit properly in this bag before make the purchase.
Pros: Comfortable Strap, Compact, Durable, Good Protection
Excerpt: I got this to commute to work with my iPad and camera. The quality is very good for a [$]bag and it's light. Quiet velcro flap option is great for quiet shooting situations. The iPad fits snugly, but you won't be able to fit a full frame dslr with the iPad e.g. 5d mkii--it pushes the middle out and it's difficult to clip and secure the flap. It's a bit narrow, so if you are a 6'0 male, it may look like a murse on you.
Pros: Easily Accessible Equipment, Lightweight, Roomy Lens Compartment, Well Padded
Excerpt: I purchased this because I needed a bag for carrying my Canon 60D at a wedding, as I didn't want to have it over my shoulder throughout the event. It easily fit my camera body, Sigma 30mm 1.4 lens, a bottle of water, and my H1 microphone and windscreen (I was primarily doing bits of video here and there). If I had more lenses, I could have probably fit at least one more in the bag as well. The shape is somewhat box-like, is sturdy and maintains its form.
Pros: Easily Accessible Equipment, Supports Lens Well, Well Padded
