Small bag for 5D3 + 40 pancake
« on: July 01, 2012, 07:26:00 PM »
Hello, all.

Looking for a smallest possible bag for 5d3+40 that I can put in a hiking pack, regular backpack, my wife's hand bags, and my daughter's diaper bag. I'd like to be able to take the combo everywhere practical. I looked at the Lencoat pouch pro online but not sure it would provide adequate protection. Any suggestion would be highly appreciated.

I've become a big fan of Think Tank, and they have a couple cases that might suit your needs.

Slim Changer - if you don't have the battery grip.

Speed Change v2 - if you have the grip.

I haven't used either of these, but Think Tank has a pretty good track record for me.

I was thinking this the other day (except for my EOS3 and/or 7D), all i've got is my Lowepro 350AW and Toploader Zoom 55AW, with the pancake on they're likely to get lost at the bottom.
So thanks, I might check out those Thinktanks, if I can find anywhere around here that sells them that is.
Too much gear, too little space.

Slim Changer - if you don't have the battery grip.

Speed Change v2 - if you have the grip.

An alternative to the second one (with grip) is the Lowepro S&F Utility Bag 100 AW - fits a gripped body perfectly, and has an all-weather cover tucked away in the bottom.

Thank you Jerry and Neuro. I will check them out. I may also try the Lenscoat pouch to see if it provides good protection.

Great question and answers all.  I did not even realize I needed a case like that until I read this thread and saw the suggestions.

I 2nd the Lowepro, nice and snug fit for a gripped with small lens, my buddy uses it with a 5d2 and a 24.

Any suggestions for a old style camera case (soft neoprene preferred) that surrounds the camera w/battery pack and lens attached? Like to keep it all together for when I transport.
5D3, SL1, M1 and more lenses than I know what to do with! Been shooting w/Canon since 1985.
