I had/have a lot of bags. All sizes and shapes that I need when I need them. Some cheap, some expensive. Why should anyone care?

I own 3 dedicated photo bags but I never use them anymore. I just got me an Artisan & Artist insert holding one body and three lenses. With that, I can now convert my messenger bags (2 sizes) or backpack into camera bags...

I bought a Domke F10 and I was happy for a while. Okay, 2 weeks. And then I came across the Grafea UK website. Damn.

I have two bags, one big bag (A&A DCAM-7000) for my rf camera plus other gears, the other small bag (A&A ACAM-1100) for only a rf camera. These bags work perfect for me.

I've got a huge number of bags, I must admit.

Starting with a LowePro Adventura 170 for the small set.

Then a German Army Combat Bag for the slightly bigger set.

A Vanguard Bag for my compact NEX-set.

A CCS Heritage for my Leica-Set.

A LowePro Oion AW if I want a big waist-bag.

A Kalahari K-22 for a bigger set.

A LowePro Mini Trekker for a big DSLR set.

And a Samsonite Trekking Backpack for the really huge DSLR set.

And this weird thing to put almost everything in.

I have more bags and rollers that I can shake a stick at, but my favorite for RF gear is the Think Tank Retrospective 5.
http://www.thinktankphoto.com/catego...ospective.aspx
It will hold an RF body w/lens and several other lenses, a couple of batteries and assorted odd bits.
Mine is the the "Pinestone" color. Somewhat stylish and not too camera bag looking.

I always disliked bags , now I 've got only one , a Domke F2 since 1993 . It 's so easy to carry around , fully loaded and even more half empty . So , I just need one bag or no bag at all when I carry just a camera with one lens .

I just finished another bag survey and found that there wasn't anything currently available that was better for me than the BBB-E.

that is very good news...i have often thought about a bag size in between the 5 and the 10! looking forward to it's release!
thanks for the heads up.

For my M4-2 with a CV 21 f4, CV 35f2.5 and 90 f4 Elmar I have a small cheap Tamrac. OK for short walkabout. But, if the weather is not too hot (not over 70F for this fat guy) then I prefer a light weight vest with cargo pockets.

For more gear my bag is a 02' Toyota Camry. I don't like carrying lots of gear and there are no interesting photographs more than 100 ft. from the car anyway.

call me, lazy ass John

I used to use larger bags and backpacks but now I carry my camera and use a smaller bag, a Domke F-5XB. I usually carry a couple of extra lenses and a few rolls of film and maybe a couple of filters. - Jim

Sounded good until I looked at the website and it looks about the size of my Hadley original. It's made for DSLR so it looks a biggish bag. Hoped it was gonna be as slim as the BBBE but able to fit my iPad in its case.

i didn't check the measurements but if the 7 is truly between the 5 and the 10 i would be happy.
the bbb bags are pretty unique in that they have so little/no padding and therefore are truly slim.

i have to admit though, that the 10 looks/is bigger than it feels on the shoulder/hip/

I just picked up a Lowepro Event Messenger 100. It's tiny, but it easily fits my Voigtlander, my Lumix GF2 and an extra lens and film. I can slip it inside my bigger packpack hassle. Highly recommended at only $45.

i was looking at one of these yesterday...they actually seem pretty good and there is room for an ipad behind the divider inside the bag. they cost 69 bucks locally.
