Sorry I know there have been loads of posts on bags. But cant find them. I have the lowepro slingshot 200aw which is nice but want one that looks less camera bag like. and one where i can just put the body and one lens (more casual) than gearing up and taking the full monty.

was looking at this:

but dont know if it would suit my needs. No more than 50.

Thanks in advance. Comments welcome (and appreciated!).

Your link doesn't work. Which Crumpler bag is it?

To compare their products, check out their site: http://www.crumplerbags.com/Cart/index.php?catId=22

For what you say you need, I would think the 5 or 6 million dollar home would suffice.

I personally have the 5 million dollar home and it carries my D50 with a Sigma 17-70mm lens attached, 50mm prime, 70-300mm nikkor, sb-400, extra battery for the d50, extra batteries for the sb-400, and a box of moo cards. Granted, it is a little tight, and sometimes I swap out the 70-300mm lens for a bulb blower, but it gets me by pretty well.

If you have bigger lenses, I would go with the 6 million dollar home.

I got a Crumpler bag but unfortunately even though the specs looked right when it showed up I wasn't to pleased with it. So I'm an advocate of putting my hands on the bag first. But that Crumpler looks like it's pretty roomy is that a new model?

noy sure if its a new model. i only want something i can put my camera in when i go to a friends house or something without "kitting out". It i am going somewhere where i expect to take photos, then the lowepro is ready to go!

It looks like some sort of OEM bag maybe made for the British market only.
If you go to Crumplers main website (http://www.crumpler.com.au) you will see that the specs of your bag are slightly smaller than the 5 million dollar home.
I have a 5 million dollar home and it's perfect for one body with lens attached plus two extra lenses, iPod, wallet, spare memory a filter or two and misc small junk but I would not want anything smaller.
Crumpler bags are expensive but absolutely bullet proof and take one heck of a pounding.

I mostly use the tamrac Pro5... I really enjoy how easily it allows the camera to be accessed and secured. And it doesn't scream camera bag.

Thanks everyone. sorry i didnt reply. been out (too much!).

I like the crumpler bags because the brand is not known for camera bags as much as lowepro, tamrac etc. and it looks quite stylee.

looking at the specs from the webpage K1W1 put up, i might want the xxl and not the large model. and its still smaller than the 5million dollar bag. Have you aussies got bigger cameras? :D

Don't call me an Aussie you Welsh so and so. :D:D:D

I can't work out those bags on the site that you linked to originally. As I said all I can assume is that they are some sort of OEM versions so they do not sell directly against Crumpler products in other stores. It's quite a common practice for larger retailers to have brand "A" products that are actually exclusive to them. They then offer "If you can buy exactly the same product somewhere else for less we will beat it by 10%" or similar which of course you can't do because nobody else sells exactly the same brand "A" product.
As I said I like the 5 Million Dollar bag with my D50 (D80 is very similar in size). A 6 Million Dollar would allow me to carry more stuff that I simply don't need most of the time. Less is generally better as far as I am concerned.

how very dare you imply i have a soft spot for sheep :D

I see. I think i will go with the XL. Think that will fit my D80 with the lenses in my signiture?

Dimensions: 23W x 17H x 12D cms

Thanks
