i'd strongly recommend the hadley small for going out with 1 camera and 1 lens, if the price is not an issue, specially because you already have a hadley pro and thus would use it naturally since you're used to its workings. i would love the billinghams to be cheaper, but after i saw a friend's hadley that was almost my age and was in pretty useable shape (and he's someone that really uses it) i thought it'd be worth it. i prefer the look of domke bags because theyre more low profile, the billinghams look a bit on the posh side...

That's a good point and one of the reasons I like my Domke. It's only a couple of years old, hasn't really had a lot of use and now looks like something from an op shop!

Joe... come on, now! You need to feed the lazy man inside you!! A lazy man would NOT carry around all that gear. ONE Rd1 body, ONE lens, and ONE good book. Head out on the town and you're ready for a day of comfortable shooting with no stress about what rig to use. And you've got the book for when you stop at the local ale house for a break. Perfect... trust me on this, Joe for I AM a wild and lazy guy! :-)

I almost always carry 1 camera and 2 lenses except on a shooting expedition where I may bring max of 2 cameras and 3 lenses. Nowadays, my daily drive to and from the office will just be a P&Sl GRDIV and DLux 5 on a small clone . samsonite messenger bagI still have many bags in the closet (leftover from DSLR days) but I now alternately use, Domke J803, F5Xb, F3, F2 and a Hadley Pro but also still on the lookout for other bags. I regularly monitor Joe's never ending quest for the "perfect one" and had some fun looking at the
those threads.

My daily bag a clone Samsonite with a Domke gripper strap. Fits my OMd with lens attached and an extra lens. Oftentimes, I load it with a GRD4 and a Dlux5. An iPad also fits perfectly at the back pocket with zipper. 9.5"W x 10.5"H x 3.5"D

i often leave the bag in the car trunk and swing the cameras over my shoulder...one or 2 cameras with lenses attached and a few spare batteries in my pocket (we're talking the rd1 here). but this is usually in better weather...winter and i like a bag...snow etc.

actually, the tamrac rally 5 is a pretty good bag but a bit pedestrian. it holds my entire rf kit plus and does it effortlessly and easily...plus it's easy to actually use. i just loaded it with my gear to remind myself of it's versatility and will be carrying it tomorrow and for the weekend, at least.

Yes, I have looked at every image, on all 62 pages, of your flickr account, which is how I know that since the beginning of 2005, you have used at least 14 different cameras, 36 different lenses (29 of which were m or ltm mount), and no telling how many different straps, grips, cases, and bags. I also noticed that your best stuff was from before you started mentioning the camera and lens combination you used in the title of the image, and I noticed that about a full half of your images just stick the subject smack dab in the center of the picture plane. Of the remaining half, you seem to have a serious preference for the bottom left hand corner of the picture plane. Your black and white work is generally more interesting than your color work. You tend to underexpose by about half a stop to a stop when using black and white, and overexpose by about half a stop with color, at least that is how it looks on my monitor.


Only bags, huh?

I've worked why these bag threads are so popular!

No one really gives a **** about camera bags, we jump into these threads for the social interaction and a chance to be totally frivolous without guilt for a change.

It's therapy!

if you want khaki, take one of your old pairs of chinos, cut off a leg and sew the cuff closed. voila! a khaki bag.
or you could use the whole pair, and sew both cuffs closed. there ya go, a bag suitable for two dslrs, with lenses mounted, no matter how long ...

I have a Domke F-5XB which takes a Zeiss Ikon, an R-D1 and three lenses together with a few films and batteries and a small light meter. Everything fits nicely and the bag is easy to carry, thanks to the good shoulder strap. The only "adjustment" to the bag - I cut off the red Domke logo, Now it is all black.

Cheers

One curious aspect of the whole camera bag obsession is how few unused bags show up in the classifies. It seems many of us have at least a bag or two sitting around, never to see action, that might be appealing enough for someone else to purchase.

Maybe we can establish a loaner program between the bag-a-holics?

I'm addicted to bag threads!
It fascinate me to no end that there are that many types of bags out there. All looks good for different purposes.

And in bag threads I get to see how people arrange stuff neatly. Because in real life, I stuff stuff in my Domke F2 without thinking.

But I never *want* to buy another bag, just like I never *want* to buy another Leica.
Now that's laziness.

J803

Frank, I have the J803, and while on paper it seems ideal, I've found it a bit heavy (> 2lbs) and a bit tight as an EDC (every day carry) bag with computer space tight, along with a camera.

The bag does hold 2-3 RF bodies and a bunch of lenses, but I can't see really traveling or carrying that much stuff around at once very often. The 13" macs are a tight fit in the sleeve pocket, but an ipad or kindle would fit nicely.

The center section is likely going to be sectioned off for bodies/lenses, the pockets hold RF lenses easily, and the strap is much heavier than the f5xb one for example.

I like the bag a lot, but have to admit, I rarely use it. If I'm carrying that much stuff loaded, I'm likely to either use 2 smaller bags, or a backpack for comfort and even more room.

Anyways I got a LV Shawnee leather book bag that almost costs as much as a month's rent. Already it is breaking in and getting more comfortable. I imagine over the decades it will get a very nice patina because the leather is untreated.

Now I know this is crazy, this is obsession on a new level, but its the most comfortable bag I've ever had.

Could anyone make a link from the Louis Vitton Site. My bag is called the Shawnee. Sorry I'm digitally inept.

I got the black one that really is a very-very dark grey. I use the lens insert from my Domke 803 and a side pocket insert from a Domke J1 to protect two cameras.

Its narrower than my Domke 803, but I can fit two rigged Leicas even with one body with my 75 Lux mounted, and even though both my M6's feature TA Rapidgrips and TA Rapidwinders.

Also can substitute a Rollei 3.5F in place of my M6 0.85 with 75 Lux.

Already spoiled by the comfort. My justification for the great expense is that photography is part of my every day life, and I generally have at least one camera on me all the time.

Paul,

I paid crazy money and bought my bag on 5th Ave and 57th Street. Like I said: I almost paid a month's rent for a Manhattan apartment.

All around NYC I see fake Louis Vitton bags. The big giveaway is how the knock-offs wear and age. The extreame quality that will make a real LV bag last decades is just not there.

The real ones get this patina as they age that is kinda beautiful. Sweat, oil and age really changes the bag. The bag really becomes part of you in time.

Interesting side note is that I use to escort my girlfriend through these places in Chinatown where you would be taken by a guide into back alleys and through stores and led into hidden dens behind false walls to buy contraband luxury handbags.

Anyways I'm counting on having this bag a long-long time.

Cal

people want used bags for cheap but the shipping is usually pretty high...not worth selling except for locally.

Paul,

Thanks for the linking.

Its kinda like wearing an expensive watch: I'll use it every day hopefully for decades, but not really appropriate for some of those remote, sketchy, uninhabited, industrial areas I kinda frequent with John above, although we were in Bushwick and Masbeth just last weekend with my new bag.

BTW the comfort of this bag is no exaggeration.

Cal

Sherry just completed the MP finder upgrade on my 0.85 M6. I'm sure that the 75 Lux will get more use because carrying two Leicas will be comfortable with this bag.

For a while I stopped carrying two cameras.

I thought the same as you ampguy. So many here raved about the 803 I thought it would become my ideal bag too. Although I kept it for a while I was quite disappointed with it and sold it. I also thought the BBBE, would be 'the one' but it doesn't take my iPad 3 in the rear pocket.

I have a Hadley which is good but a little big sometimes. I tried the Hadley Small but found it just that, small and boxy.
What I would like, if they would ever produce one, is a Billingham but with the slim profile of the 803 or BBBE.

Hello Joe, I am not so sure about that, I bought an F-803 bag off of a member here about 2 years ago who lives in the states, I forget who it was but he is a long time rff member and a frequent seller on this site and he was willing to send it to me in Bangkok while my father sent him a money order from the states (very cool of him)........the condition of the bag was ex+ and it came with an extra insert......I saved a lot of money by buying it off of him than if I would, If I had bought that same bag here in Bangkok.......


That said, whenever I go back to the states I usually purchase Domke bags because they are much cheaper there than they are here in Bangkok.....

As far as bags go, I use a Domke F-6 whenever I travel and it holds my entire kit quite well, and if I decide to go "light" I use my 5-xb bag.......

but to be honest, when I go out to take photos, my camera is not in a bag, it is in my hand and ready to shoot.....the bags serve mostly as a transportation device......if I am carrying a camera with me, it is usually in my hands and not in a bag...but everybody is different......

cheers, michael

That said, whenever I go back to the states I usually purchase Domke bags because they are much cheaper there than they are here in Bangkok.....

As far as bags go, I use a Domke F-6 whenever I travel and it holds my entire kit quite well, and if I decide to go "light" I use my 5-xb bag.......

but to be honest, when I go out to take photos, my camera is not in a bag, it is in my hand and ready to shoot.....the bags serve mostly as a transportation device......if I am carrying a camera with me, it is usually in my hands and not in a bag...but everybody is different......

cheers, michael
same here, the camera is in my hand until i am heading home.
as to shipping cost, i sometimes wonder if canada has a higher rate than the states. if i ship within canada it is way cheaper than shipping elsewhere in the world.

I have a Hadley which is good but a little big sometimes. I tried the Hadley Small but found it just that, small and boxy.
What I would like, if they would ever produce one, is a Billingham but with the slim profile of the 803 or BBBE.

paul, take a look at the tamrac rally 5...it holds my ipad (the original), my 2 rd1 bodies with lenses attached and my 3rd lens plus cards, media cards, phone etc. and its cheap compared to most other bags.
