    I bought myself a large backpack from Ritz that has dividers and compartments for the camera and lenses. I modified it to accomodate my laptop as well. It's kinda big, but it's easy to carry and doesn't look like a purse/fanny pack :o

    theres the micro trekker 200 .. it's a small bag for light photographers.. i have it filled up to the brim, but i'll probably be selling off a lot of stuff

    what lenses are in it are irrelevent it holds my 20d, one telephoto lens, extender, and 5 wide/mid range lenses with ease

    the outside compartments are big enough to hold my flash/battery pack, extra cf cards, batteries, rubber bands, zip ties, and other assorted filters/goodies

    for a size comp, it's like 2/3 height of a regular jansport backpack so not that big


    edit: that white piece on the bottom right is not the bag ripping, it's a trash bag that unfortunately got caught in my zipper :mamoru:

    micro trekker is a backback right?

    what do they go for? I just paid like $80 for the canon 100dg, but might want to pickup a backpack as well for when I'm hiking or biking to a location.

    I have a little case like willg133 posted, but its a lowepro. It's fine for what it is, but I need more space. I'm starting to get more lenses (plus I have a 35mm and a dslr) and filters, so I've outgrown it, but it's taken awhile to do so. I recently picked up (well, paid for anyways) a Burton Zoom backpack which is a photo backpack like the microtrekker posted, but a bit bigger. I went with the Burton bag because it doesnt have the "I HAVE A CAMERA AND LENSES INSIDE HERE" logo of a canon/lowepro/tamrac/etc... Plus the main compartment opens on the side that rests against your back, so no one can get into your gear while you are wearing it. These were all big factors since I'm going to Europe this summer and don't want to have to worry about always looking over my shoulder in crowded places.

    Maybe a notebook or two or small textbooks, but not regular textbooks unless you take the padding out and don't put any camera or lenses in it. :hsughr: It's about the size of a regular text book. This isn't a large backpack by any means, but it's large enough to carry a decent amount of gear and it's one of the most affordable backs (under 60).

    :wiggle:

    When I bring my camera to school and stuff I just carry both bags. :hsughr:

    I just ordered a trekker 200. There are similar ones from other companies but I like the straps and loops. If you want a simple bag try the Canon 2400.

    I have it, but just upgraded. Its probably the best bang for the buck. The shoulder straps are really thin and the waist belt is useless, but in terms of just padding and organization, it works great.

    As a thief, this is my favorite backpack. It lets me know who has the big $$ invested in equipment. :hsugh:

    the one 48 posted looks right about perfect, I dont think ill ever have a huge lens collection and if so, I doubt that ill need to carry more than three on me at a time

    I think at least, so that small one would be jsut right
