Title: Bag suggestion for 5DMKII and Shorty McForty?
Post by: FunPhotons on July 24, 2012, 08:37:09 PM
Now with the shorty as my walk around lens when I don't want weight my bags are too big. Suggestions? I want a shoulder type back (no backpack), just enough room for the camera, spare battery and card. I like Lowepro generally.

Don't bag it. Keep it ready. Checkout a Black Rapid strap.

I've been using the Lowepro terraclime 100 for the last few years in those cases when I'm out with family, or just need body w/ lens (and flash or 2nd small lens if 50 or 28 is mounted).

Can fit a 5d2 (no grip) and a 70-200f4 (hood reversed), or 7D+grip w/ 50 1.4.

Been very happy with it.  Its a soft body, with an envelope that serves as padding.  Doesn't look like a camera bag.

A nice small bag. I personally after having tried many bags with their "great features" have found Think Tank to win my affections for happy usability.

Super comfy to use. I apologize i know you wanted a small bag but consider this if you would.

I have the 30 which is much bigger but then it offers all the features i need to lug a chair, monopod, couple lenses and bodies with large lens and do it more comfortably than a backpack style pack.

Think Tank Retrospective is supurb - pick a number - 10,20,30.
My favorite is Domke 5xb - lightweight and durable
Tamrac has a couple of new messenger back so I would suppose Lowepro does also.
Billingham Hadley is georgous but pricey.
Naneu Pro Lima is rugged, cheap and comfortable.

The lowepro 140aw is small and has rain cover, pop along to a high street store and check one out!

The Think Tank Retrospective 5 is a great bag, but may be a little large for what you are looking for. The Lowepro Nova 140 would suit your minimalist need.

If you're looking for a messenger style bag, then you might like the Tamrac Rally Series.  I think they are a good looking bag and they offer various sizes, plus the bags are well built and they have good padding.

I have the ThinkTank Retrospective 20 and the Tamrac Rally 6.  What I like about the Tamrac Rally series is the bags weight is 1-1.5 lbs. less than the same size bag in the Retrospective series.   

When I'm walking around all day, the ThinkTank bags can start to feel heavy, so I now generally use the Tamrac Rally because it is much lighter.
