    I was going to wait till I got my Canon 100mm Macro but it this seems to be taking off in the Canon Expo thread so I thought I'd start a new thread.

    EDIT: Pic updated with new stuff

    Here is my Mini Trekker bag with:

    1. Kenko Extension Tubes
    2. Canon 28-70 f2.8 L
    3. Sigma 15mm f2.8 Fisheye
    4. Canon 10D with BG-ED3 Battery grip,
    5. Canon 70-200 f2.8 L (Hood fits on 28-70)
    6. Canon 50mm f1.8 II
    7. Canon 2x Teleconverter (underneath)
    8. Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 EX
    9. Sigma 1.4x Teleconverter

    Flash now has to go into the top pocket as there is no room left.

    Here's my Lowepro Mini Trekker, bared naked to the world ...

    1 : Canon 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS + hood reversed
    2 : Canon 50mm f/1.8 II
    3 : Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro + hood reversed
    4 : Canon 300D + BG-E1 battery grip with Canon 17-40mm f/4L attached
    5 : Battery charger base and IR remote
    6 : X'S-Drive Pro in it's carry bag (spare CF card is in there too)
    7 : Hood for the 17-40. It's a bit big to have attached.

    [​IMG]

    There's still a fair bit of room in there if I had to squeeze more in, plus the pocket on the front of the bag for battery charger cables, the car charger for the X'S-Drive, spare X'S-Drive battery, filters, body cap, rear lens cap, etc. Could fit another lens in the bag if I shuffled the X'S-Drive and hood to the pocket I guess.

    It's a nice bag, I think it'll do me for a while yet. Very versatile in terms of how you can arrange the padding - you can see the different configurations of mine and petal's, while it's exactly the same bag.

    I must say though, that the Lowepro Photo Trekker and Nature Trekker look pretty damn good as something a bit bigger, as well as some of the Crumpler bags. Hmmmm :)

    EDIT : that 120-300 f/2.8 of yours only just fits, petal, huh? :)

    I was all set to get a Crumpler until I found out that they don't have waist straps. Stuff carrying around all that gear and having to lug it all around on your shoulders.

    I took the 120-300 to Photo Continental to maker sure that would fit. I was going to buy a Nature Trekker and then discovered that it fit into the mini trekker.

    Here's mine:

    [​IMG]

    Crumpler Wonder Weenie, with a Bunion Insert.

    [​IMG]

    1. 17-40mm F/4 L
    2. EOS D30 with BG-ED3
    3. 420EX with Stofen Omnibounce
    4. Hood for 17-40mm
    5&6. 70-200 F/4 L, tripod clamp mount, Hood
    7. Ixus 330, Lenspen, 2 spare BP-511s, 50mm F1.8 Mk2, spare memory cards

    I prefer a slingbag for easier access to my gear, because I'm on the move all the time. Added bonus is that it looks just like a filled messenger bag and doesn't scream "I've got a camera" in the more seedy places I might pass through.

    My current working kit, in a Mini-Trekker bag.

    1. Pentax *istD with Battery grip
    2. Pentax P-FA* 80-200mm F2.8 ED(IF)
    3. TelePlus 2x convertor
    4. Sigma 28-8mm F3.5-5.6 Macro
    5. Achiever 632T Flash, My Metz won't fit in the bag !
    6. Cable release for *istD. Manfrotto 345 table tripod. These are solid steel and even support the 80-200 Lens.
    7. Sigma 18-50mm F3.5-5.6 DC
    8. Spare batteries.

    I don't always carry my Sigma 600mm F8 lens or my Tamron 28-200 lens as the kit above covers most needs, apart from say getting an 85mm F1.4 :)

    Jim.

    Just because someone has alot of camera equipment does not mean that they have alot of money. It might mean that the money that would go on other things (like a newer car, or computer updates) goes on cameras instead.

    I was wondering this too especially for C.Leong who had his DSLR and P&S in the bag!

    Pretty much. Photography for me is a hobby... some people do up cars, others spend every weekend in a drunken stupor... each to their own really.

    Yep, mine was taken with my P&S digital. But yeah, I was wondering the same thing with c.leong's - two P&S digitals?

    Can anyone recommend a camera bag that has space for lappy as well? or a lappy bag with space for a SLR camera... ;)

    I currently have the two separate, and would like a 1 bag solution for an upcoming overseas trip. Thx.


    My camera bag (yes, it's a Canon bag with a Nikon inside :p)

    1. Spare CF card(s), CF to PCMCIA adapter.
    2. Lens hood, pringles lid, lens caps/covers.
    3. Camera with kit lens attached, shoulder strap wrapped around lens as neat as I could for picture.
    4. Lens blower brush.
    5. Spare battery.
    6. Li-Ion recharger, AC cable, USB cable.
    5&6 are separated by a padded divider within the the zipped compartment.
    7. Lithgow Valley mineral water. :)

    The bits making up no. 4, 5, 6 and 7 form a bum bag ("fanny pack" for yanks) when separated.


    Edit: thanks for the bag suggestions below.

    I reckon you'll be hard pushed to find something that'll fit an SLR system and laptop. Maybe a Lowepro Orion Trekker? Has a bottom compartment for an SLR and a top compartment for other stuff - possibly a laptop might fit with some other stuff acting as padding around it?

    Thanx for the link mate. Some of those lappy + slr bags are awesome. Currently I have been carrying around two bags like Onyx. I will have to set aside some money for one of these soon I should imagine.

    Darn, I left my EXIF info behind! :p

    Housemate of mine has a Canon Powershot S1 IS, I brought it over in early July from Singapore, just threw in the lot and borrowed it for a couple of shots.

    The "where" does currently exist - Nikon's D1 series has the ability to be hooked up with a GPS to record the longitude and latitude co-ords. It'll pintpoint where on earth you took it. ;)
