Does anyone know of a good source for camera bags? I like nylon padded bags and have a Canon SD1 and a MiniDV Camcorder.

I buy all my stuff there, referred people there and they have stayed with them as well. Their support is awesome too.

I got me one a few weeks ago. I wanted to be able to see it in person so I went to wal mart, target, best buy to see what they had in person. I found one at bestbuy that I loved, made by Canon, and was $60. Then I went on ebay and bought it for $35.

Thanks for that link guys!

No more camera shops around here. Everybody's gone digital. So I've got to mail order my 35mm stuff. Sucks bad.

I have used these guys since I bought my Cambo 4x5 from them.

Calumet Photo

They have a far better reputation than some of the NY houses, and I have had excellent customer service from them in the past.


ETA: Take a look at the Domke bags. Almost every pro I encountered during my internship used Domke. They are very rugged, well thought out and great to carry.

Calument and B&H are the top of the heap.

Look at Lowe Pro bags

Dead link Daddy-o!

Another +1 for B&H. I'd agree with an earlier recommendation of Loewe Pro for a good mid level bag. If you are looking for sometihng fancier, such as a Fogg, e-mail me.

I use B & H or Adorama. Lately I have been using Adorama more as I find their webpage easier to navigate, they usually have what I want in stock, and their total price with shipping is usually slightly less than B & H. It's hard to judge the size of camera bags without seeing them in person.

Thanks for the help, this will get me started.

I bought a Minolta 5D Digital SLR and a zoom lens over the weekend. I immediately went to the dive shop and bought a Pelican 1450 case to put it in. I used nylon camera bags for years. But, after seeing them dropped, crushed, and rained on... Never again.

Other people will not respect your equipment. At least consider putting it in something that will protect it.

I did get the bright yellow case so that if someone picks it up and walks off, it will be easier to spot at a distance.

I love my Lowpro.

I have been looking at some photos from B&H of various bags. Sort of strange that smaller belt/hip bags cost more than larger shoulder bags. My perfect combo might be: a belt bag (quite small) for my digital camera and then a should bag which would fit my miniDV camcorder plus the digital camera (Canon SD1) in its smaller case.

mountainsmith lumbar packs are also popular among pro photographers.

and you can obviously use 'em for other purposes

they're bullet proof.

I carry a Lowepro AW Stealth II and a Mountainsmith Cairn

I also travel w/ a Pelican Case

Very possibly the ultimate camera bags: The Roadwired "Pod" series.


I also bought yellow. Haven't walked off without it yet.
