Need a low key shoulder bag for canon 5d3 with kit lens and 600 ex
« on: September 24, 2012, 08:41:28 PM »
Hi I am going to a wedding and want to bring my 5d3, 24-105 and 600ex only in the smallest bag possible. Any suggestions?

I personally love Think Tank bags.  They're a little more expensive but worth it in my opinion.

http://www.thinktankphoto.com/categories/digital-holsters/digital-holsters.aspx

I have 3.  1)  Airport Takeoff (Large): used to carry EVERYTHING (except for video lights and cages), 2) Sling-O-Matic 10 (medium): for walking around with most of my lenses and a flash, and 3) Digital Holster with attachment (smallest bag): for a flash, and an extra lens if needed, or my wallet and keys and some smaller accessories.

I think either the sling-o-matic or a digital holster would be great for your use.  The digital holster can be modified by adding different size attachments based on what else you need to carry.

Also, their service is friendly and I can get a hold of the rep in my area very easily.  Overall, it's a good company and they make QUALITY bags.

I'm still ga-ga over the Domke bags... got some from the 70's yet, when Paul Dolan and then Sterling Clark were my EPOI reps (Ehrenreich, pre-Nikon USA).   Got more these days, they're just great bags.  You can get 'em in non-steal-me colors too.

I use a tamrac rally 6 bag.

I really like how it looks more or less like a generic messenger bag and doesnt scream "I HAVE EXPENSIVE CAMERA GEAR IN HERE"

I can fit my 5d2, kit lens, 430EXII, and 70-200 f/2.8 ISII with lens hood.  Theres also room for accessories with all that stuff packed in.

Design your own Bike messenger style bag, as flashy or low-key as you want. They have a Camera bag insert that fits the medium size bags. 
I'm able to fit: 5D3, 24-70 2.8 L, 24-104 L and a 70-2002.8 L. And still room for Flash and extras.

Thanks everyone.

I ended up with a lowepro revo 170. Got it for $43 and it fits my 600ex, 5d3 with 24-105 and 40mm pancake along with battery charger and spare memory cards. So far seems good.

+1 on this. First time I looked at them was when Quasimodo recommended them here. I recommended my brother in law to get one for his 6D + lenses. Really nice bags. I might make room for one soon, but I am close to having more camera bags than my wife have handbags and she won't accept that so I got to wait I guess.

When I  want to carry only my 5D MK III + 24-105 f/4 + 600 EX-RT, I use Lowepro Toploader Zoom 50 AW and hook up the 600 EX-RT case to the side of the Lowepro (see the pic below)

I recently got this sling bag and so far, it is a WINNER!!

Tamrac 5768 Velocity 8x Photo Sling Pack - Gray/Burgundy
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007234626/ref=oh_details_o01_s02_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I just the other day, had my 5D3 with kit lens (24-1-5) in it with one 600EX-RT.
I could also, if removing one more velcro insert, have had the 70-200L f/2.8 on instead of my kit lens, with flash and it would work...

Perfect size, just enough compartments, easy to car on back and quickly sling around to front for quick access.

HTH,

cayenne

I've been using this Kata bag for a few months and really like it. It will fit a 5d3 with 70-200 attached in the main pocket (snug), with a 24-105 in the small side pocket, and a 580EX flash in the bigger side pocket. Also has an expandable section on the bottom of the main pocket, so you can leave a lens hood on. Leave out a few of the extra lenses, and its feel pretty compact and light. And it has a great shoulder strap. Probably wouldn't work with a gripped camera, though I haven't tried it.
