What bag do you use?

Everything is in the title. I don't plan to buy the Fuji case for the GF670 as it looks like just too tight.

What do you for storing and carrying around your GF670 camera?

I usually carry it in a domke f-6 waxwear. plenty of room inside for the camera + film + meter + my M6/28 elmarit for wide shots or zeiss 50 sonnar and whatever else you might need. If I want to travel light, I grab the FX-5B which is the perfect size for just the camera + meter and film.

No bag. GF670 slung over left shoulder. Yellow filter, Tri-X and a lens cloth in the pocket. And I'm good to go...

Same as any other of my cameras, in a messenger bag. I do have the fitted case, for storage.

Just got the camera today with a FX-5B (nice fit). Camera feels just great. Loaded up with some 3200 film in order to do some night shots during my trip to Dallas but it is raining like crazy over there....

Perfect! But I would be slightly skeptical shooting the GF in the rain.. getting the bellows wet, or closing the front with a lot of moisture inside... I shudder at the thought of what could happen....

Don't worry I didn't go out that night.. I took few shots inside the hotel. Following night was much better. Coming back to the GF670, shutter sound is just impressively quiet.

Crumpler Enthusiast sling backpack. Side openings for carrying two RF bodies, an iPad slot, and a large top compartment for random crap.

I use a 58 mm MC 8 yellow from Calumet. And I have a similar orange filter made by Hoya. The yellow is my primary tool.

Depends on the kit.

I have a Billingham Hadley that I use for Leica M6TTL + 3 lenses / film / phone, etc. I used to have a larger Billingham (355?) that was all straps and bickes and zips and was a right PITA to get stuff into / out of in a hurry. I used it for my Mamiya 7 + 43/65/150. However, I traded the old Billingham and got a Lowepro "Stealth Reporter 400" that is a dream to carry and much easier to access / stow gear. The build quality isn't Billingham standard but it's good enough and there's an all-weather cover as well.

If I am carrying More than one camera, then it is going to be a timbuktu messenger bag with the camera insert.. Otherwise, I don't use one it it is just one camera with one lens.

The Bessa III folder up is fairly compact and I rarely need room for more than it plus a couple of lens hoods (I have two, usually one fitted with an orange filter and the other without), and a couple of extra rolls of film. So what bag I use depends more on what other junk I need to carry about.

Lately, I've been using the Lowepro Teraclime 100 fitted with a camera pocket from the A&A ACAM 7100, and I've also been using the Lowepro Passport Sling for when I need a bit more space for other junk (like a place to stuff my jacket if it gets too warm, or a second camera, or the iPad mini, or whatever).

I saw someone asked about filters. I bought two lens hoods and both Green and Yellow-Orange B+W MRC filters in 40.5mm size. The filter fits into the lens hood and snaps on and off quickly this way ... I usually have one hood fitted with a filter and the other without. You can't close the camera with a 58mm filter on the lens so I find this much more convenient for filter use, albeit a trifle costly (lens hoods cost $70 US each). (I actually might buy a third so that I have a permanent setup of one clear shade and two filtered shades at all times when I'm out shooting.)

40,5mm filter(s) in the lens hood. Same size as most FSU RF lenses filter size. N.D. 0,6 ; I.R. maybe an Orange or dark Yellow.

Because the lens hood is pretty expensive I only have one. For the Bessa III 667 as traveling camera: The original pouch only. And a few films, lens hood, filter etc. in the pocket.

Or combined with a small digital u4/3 camera in a back pack.

Better times when visiting Ukraine (Mykolaiv) near Crimnea. Thanks Mr. Poetin for demolishing such a nice country and people in a few weeks!
