Crumpler or any other camerabag for D700

I am looking for a camerabag big enough for my D700 with lens attached and space for another 1 or 2 lenses in there. There is a photoshop nearby but they haven't got a selection of photobags, so I can't test any. Has anybody got experience with a bag for the bigger dslr's

I fancy the crumpler pretty bella 4000, but I'm just not sure if my dslr with 2 lenses will fit in there

Re: Crumpler or any other camerabag for D700

I'm not going to say brand A is better than brand B. What I do is to see how a bag will fit in with me.

For instance, any bag that requires me to open the main lid/flap to access the front pockets is less than ideal as if I want to fish something out quickly, or while the bag is on my shoulder I have to first open it. This, of course, is less secure, and maybe less weatherproof.

I don't like 'proper' buckles for the same reason.

Ideally, I like 'one level' briefcase style bags that give access to everything with some quick access pockets that I can get to with the bag closed. Some of these can also be carried on your back rucksack style for the longer trips on foot.

Your use might have very different requirements.

I reviewed the Tamrac Pro 12 here if it is of any use:

Pixalo Photographic Equipment Reviews - Pro System 12 (5612) -

There are lots of other reviews in the Review Section too.

Re: Crumpler or any other camerabag for D700

I have had a bag problem for over 40yrs I'm talking camera bags! they are too big or too small and since digital came in and people dont seem to carry much gear about the bag situation has not changed, I like to wear my camera around my neck at all times but sometimes you have to behave and put it away safely....some times I use a sling bag which you can buy from any market and inside this fits a small freezer zip type bag with my D300 standard zoom in at the side of that is my 70-300mm fited in a soft lens case, and that did me untill recently when I paid a visit to Premier Inks,(they have a good range I tried them all in the shop) soon I found a camera bag that will take my kit, and when I am away abroad this will fit into a larger bag with my small laptop and a few cables all this has easy access so that will do me...and I can carry it all as hand luggage....but the problem will not end here..... soon I will be Full Frame and then the search will continue..................

Re: Crumpler or any other camerabag for D700

My usage would be mainly to put my gear in for easy reach downstairs. The camera is now on the desk and not safe for the kids.

And for when I want to take my camera with an extra lens. Not much/heavy but easy to take with me. And good protection.

I will dive into the reviews, thanks Graham, Des for you replies

Re: Crumpler or any other camerabag for D700

I was recommended on Pixalo to buy a Lowepro Orion trecker 2

It now carries my 5d2 with grip and 24-105L, 100-400L and 17-40L with all the lenshoods. I also carry a few filters a little box with blower and lens cleaning kit, spare batteries and a small bottle of fizzy or water.

Well worth spending money on in my opinion .

Re: Crumpler or any other camerabag for D700

Thanks Chris, but no backpacks, I've got 2 already and they are good enough for the when I'm out trekking. I've got the lowepro mini trekker, and have to say it's a very good backpack

I've checked reviews and the billingham seems great but they are very expensive

Re: Crumpler or any other camerabag for D700

And I bought the LOWEPRO SLINGSHOT SLING SHOT 200 AW I've seen a similar bag by my aunty and thought it was very handy and certainly needed in case of taking my gear to city center which I do more nowadays.

The next one will definitely the crumpler pretty bella 4000. Very funky colour the roadkill red
