Best Single SLR Bag

Anonymous, Newegg
13 July 2008
  • Pros: I carry a Canon 20D or 40D with battery grip and a 28-135mm telephoto. Either will fit flush with the top of the bag, and uses the full depth/width. I carry 4 extra batteries and the charger in the bottom pouch. I carry the canon flash and a small lens in separate lowepro cases that attach to eit...
  • Cons: long telephotos are not accomodated.

  • Summary: Actual amount paid: £20(GBP) Having purchased this bag six years ago for my film SLR I was pleased to find that it fitted my Nikon D50 perfectly. The elastic film loops are a little redundant but the internal pocket is ideal for memory cards.
  • Pros: Protection, Price
  • Cons: None!

  • Summary: I am using this bag for a Nikon D50 and it fits very well. The downside is that you can't take any spare lenses in it, but because of that it is small enough to fit in a rucksack. The padding is adequate, but I probably still wouldn't recommend dropping your camera from great heights in it!
  • Pros: Cons:

  • Summary: A nice bag for one lense/SLR combination. But I soon grew out of this one and had to purchase it larger brother the TLZ AW. It can really only hold one small extra lense and then without any padding.
  • Pros: Adequate
  • Cons: A little small, lacks AW cover

  • Summary: Like other reviewers have said, it fits the camera perfectly but not much more - we can fit our Minolta Maxxum 4 with its 28-80 zoom lens perfectly (with some room to spare on the lens end).
  • Pros: Small, lightweight, fits small SLRs with "not too large" zoom lens perfectly
  • Cons: not enough storage space

  • Summary: I made a mistake w/ this one. I hoped a good top-loader would save me from needing a better strap, unfortunately, this one is just too small, and there's no substitute for a good strap. I think a toploader is a good idea, I'd just go w/ a much bigger one!
  • Pros: Compact
  • Cons: Too compact, zipper pulls broke

  • Summary: This is my vacation and "walk around" camera bag. I bought it for my Nikon F80 35mm film SLR. Now I use it with my D70s DSLR. This bag is the perfect size for a D70 (or D50) with a mounted 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6 lens, plus a 50mm f/1.8 lens and an extra battery or two in the front pocket.
  • Pros: Compact; reverse opening lid for quick access while carrying it
  • Cons: Front pocket has no padding
