That looks like a pretty elegant solution.  What is that bag and where did you get it from?


Sony LCS-EME street price around $99 or $120 at Sony's site.. yes it's overpriced but a very nice solution for MILC's imho.

I'm not a fan of sling bags. I used a Lowepro Slingshot AW 100 exclusively (and extensively--for two years) with my T2i and never really bonded with the bag. Walking with a sling bag is fine, but getting gear in and out of it, storing it, etc. is a PITA. YMMD, but I prefer a shoulder bag.

It looks like a decent bag, and if it gets him to carry the camera more frequently than a $30 bag, it's probably worth the trade-off for the photos that he'll eventually take. I know a lot of us can easily justify when we spend $30 on a high speed memory card, $50 on a filter, $30 for a nice camera strap, etc., and I'm pretty sure I spent $100 on the Domke 803 that I use to carry my SLR.

Use the original MSRP of the M, or pretend he has a 35/1.4 mounted if that ratio makes you feel better ;)

Yesterday I ordered 2 of these http://www.ebay.com/itm/320951699480 ... recommended by CR member "Cb33"


DON'T BUY IT...too tight. Not happy at all :( :( :(


Oh no! I'm sorry to hear that. Those looked good. Now I wish I hadn't noticed those while looking around for cases.


Don't worry about it cb33 ;), it only $10. I can still return it. I just want to mention here so others don't run into this problem again.

I had ordered 2 from Amazon and paid $4.99 each ... I still haven't received them as I'm currently travelling ... but no problemo if they don't fit, I have other things I can use it for.

Almost forgot about this thread, been a bit tied up with 5hit loads of work ... coming back to the topic, as mentioned earlier, I bought 2 of these for $4.99 each from Amazon and the pouch is a snug fit for the EOS-M + 22mm lens ... but that's all that you can fit into that pouch and that's how I wanted it ... this pouch is not for everyone, if you are like me who wants to carry the EOS-M with the 22mm lens, (without being intrusive), to small parties or evening get-to-gethers in restaurants etc then this is a great little pouch ... but you do have to remember that it is not for protection but for hooking it up to your belt and portability. I like this pouch ... it fits my needs perfectly. Here is the link to the Amazon store I bought it from: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008R3O6S4/ref=oh_details_o04_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

If anyone is considering buying this pouch, be warned that once you put in the EOS-M + 22mm lens, the pouch no longer looks "pretty" ... it looks like a cloth wrapped around it but it is very small, "out of way" and does not draw attention ... that's how I wanted it ... like I said before, it is not for everyone ... you should have a specific need for it otherwise you're not gonna like the way it looks with the EOS-M + 22mm lens in it.


yep, i just found this out. i will end up repurposing it to a lens/flash carrier or something.

Update: I just received the Sensei 43mm Screw-In Metal Lens Cap from B&H (paid only $6.95) which is a very slim cap ... with this cap on, EOS-M+22mm lens fits a lot nicer in the pouch and does not look ugly like it used to with the thick ugly Canon lens cap.

I like it!  This low profile cap should make the M more pocketable.

Thanks for the tip.

I do not know why no one mentioned this one (or maybe I missed the post), but I use usual Kata's bag called "Marvelx-40".

Yes, it looks like it was designed for Sony or micro-4/3, but it fits EOS M (with any EF-M lens without hood + two camera batteries) too.
The camera itself has Canon's bottom-part-leather-case and hand-strap.

I will post actual pictures later (if anyone want's to se these).

I also own few Canon flashes, remotes, blends, bags, cases (including waterproof one) and even batteries! :)
