    I'm using it. It's decent for the money.

    The only annoying thing is the vast number of useless straps on the sides, bottom, and front.
     
  2. I read that the straps on the bottom are for your tripod. I see that the bag only costs $40. I was getting ready to pay $200 for a huge bag at Ritz. :uh:

    And I got ripped off too. My lowepro bag that I got for my sony was $60 and it's just a handbag with room for my camera and 2 lenses. :doh:

    Keep us posted if you buy that. I bought the Naneu Pro U100 backpack last week, took it home, and my laptop didn't fit in it. Shit. Looked pretty cool too, entirely removable 'photography' bag section so you can use it as a normal bag, plus it has the aforementioned laptop area. Now I'm back to square one...

    Good luck trying to get a 5 lb Manfrotto strapped in and not bang against your ass every step. All the straps are useless.

    canon is good for a begeineer and the wallet, but the straps are worth less.

    i had one for a year or so, but the straps kept pulling off
     
  9. I don't care about my wallet. I just want something that I can keep and it will work good. I don't want to buy something only to see myself trying to sell it 6 months down the road. I'm not good at selling stuff, that's why I'm not a salesman. I want stuff that will always be useful.

    i just bought that same bag last night from amazon.com. can't beat 36.99 shipped for that bag. and it's bigger than my current bag, the lowepro micro trekker 100. i was reading reviews on POTN and FM and people seem pleased with a bag that is so inexpensive. I just need a bigger bag to fit my stuff in

    300D
    canon 70-200 f/4L
    tamron 28-75 f/2.8
    canon 50 f/1.8 II
    kenko extension tubes
    430ex flash
    and then filters and little stuff

    I'll 2nd the mini trekker.... I use it to carry my canon, my mamiya RB67, a nikkon flash, my 50mm f/1.8, my kit lens and whatever lens I happen to be renting. along with all my filters, shutter cables and other misc crap.

    i's go with a tamrac expedition series. they are way better built, padded and the quality is 10x the canon. its somthing that you can keep until you outgrow the internal size of rather than having to buy a new one from poor workmanship like i did
     
  14. :eek3: wow those tamrac expeditions look pretty sweet, that 8 series is just freakin huge!! I think if I were to go for one of these it'd be the 5 or 7 series.

    i had the 5, but then did my major upgrades and needed the depth of the 7
     
  16. this might sound gay but can you take pictures of yourself wearing the 7? :hs: :mamoru:

    The pictures online don't really show much. Is the bag soo huge that it's like you have a sack full of dead babies on your back? or is it more on the slim side? I don't want something the size of a bus. That's what I'm trying to say. I am looking for something that I can wear comfortably around at events like car shows and weddings and stuff where I don't trust leaving my bag unattended.

    If you asked me to pose with the 200EG, I'd upload a shot of my nutsack.

    Lowepro Nature Trekker AW II is what I use it will hold what you have and have room for a second body, lens detached.

    don't have any of it like that, but it is kinda obtrusive. The 5 isn't as much, since it isn't as deep.

    Tamrac 5374 > that :hsugh:


    Same basic design, but better built, has slots for memory cards, etc....

    [​IMG]




    BTW, I have two bodies (EOS 1v hs, and 20d), 580ex, 70-200 2.8L, 50 1.8, the kit lens, three filters, and batteries, along with the canon charger for the 20d, ALL within the area that the cameras go.

    Then I have the three memory holders full, the puch full of misc stuff, and the front pouch full of film, an supplies to clean the sensor on my digital bodies (pec pads, refined methanol, spatula) along with a ton of business cards.

    It also carries the tripod.




    VERY comfy pack, you wont even notice it on your back at all (the whole reason I bought it), and it holds a shitload of stuff for its rather small size.

    i should get my Canon bag sometime this week *hopefully*.. i'll take pics of it and stuff.. i know it isn't the best.. but i've been spending TOO much money on my camera.. so I can't afford to spend $100+ on a bag. so we'll see how 'bad' or 'good' the canon bag is.. my lowepro micro trekker 100 is nice and all.. but too small for my needs.
