Does anyone have any recommendations for a travel case/bag (non-backback) for my D80? I'm looking for something under $75. I like the lowepro bags but they all seem small and I don't want to have to take the lens off every time I put the camera away.
I did get a Sony Handycam bag and it fits the camera w/ lens but I have to lay it on the side (anything wrong with laying it on its side), so I'm still looking for a better bag.

Bags are a very personal thing and no doubt you will get 752 conflicting replies.
I'm a Crumpler person, others are LowePro and there are plenty more besides.
One thing you can do is check the Cambags (http://www.cambags.com/) site for more info.

Thanks for the reply. I had never heard of Crumpler but I like the look of their bags. Do they hold the camera well? Easy to fit an extra lens?

I use a 5 million dollar home with my D50 with a 50mm, 18-55 and 55-200 (or 70-300) all in the bag at the same time.
The D50 and D80 are very similar in size so the same bag would fit a D80 with similar lenses.

Another vote for Crumpler $5mil. It holds my D80 with the 18-200VR attached perfectly (hood on backwards). Also carry 50mm, SB600, CP filter, cards, batteries, etc. Although, I will need to upgrade to $6mil if I acquire anything else.
