Decent camera bag for 2 bodies?

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by williadw, Aug 14, 2009.

  1. Anyone know of a decent camera bag that would hold 2 bodies.. like a D700 and D5000 and about 5 lenses?

    The largest lens in this bag would be a 70-300 and the bodies would have lenses attached to each in the bag + 3 more lenses in the bag.

    Thanks!

  3. Check out the Tamrac Pro 12. I have a D300 gripped and a D70 Gripped, plus 5 lenses a SB-800. Hoodman loup and a lot more in it.

    That Pro 12, looks like a nice bag...but it does not seem to have the built in raincoat like the Lowepro bags have, which to me is an important feature.

    I've found that if you align the pockets right that you can squeeze a D40 class body with a mid-sized or smaller lens attached right into a slightly oversized lens pocket! :biggrin:

    At the beach I had my D200 with 17-55 attached in the central section of a ThinkTank Speed Freak bag, and then a D40 with a 70-300vr in the side pocket section. That worked out great. Might have to rearrange stuff a bit or shift things over, but just about anything will work.

    I do have a Tamrac 5612 Pro 12 bag that I'm going to sell soon that works great too. I'm replacing it with a Pelican case since I never end up taking that bag out and it won't fit all my stuff anyways.

    They are a bit more on the pricey side but the Lowepro Trekker bags are great.

    Can't stop, to recommend the Crumpler Brazzillion Dollar Home, which I use everyday.
    That thing is indestructable, takes everything, you need to transport comfortably and is very nice to neck and shoulders.
     
  8. How about a Lowepro Nova 5. I still use individual lens bags, so this top loader camera bag works well for me, plus it is about $35/50 on EBay. I carry a D300/200, 12/24--60--18/200--50--30, set of tubes, Micro diopter and SB800.
     
  9. Two Bodies plus Lenses in a Backpack?

    Not to steal this thread, but I'm also looking for a backpack-style bag which will hold 2 bodies with lenses attached - a D300 with 17-55/2.8 and a D80 with 70-300VR. It would also need to hold 2-3 more smaller lenses (see my line-up in my sig). The usual pockets for filters, memory cards, and a Nikon DR-6 right-angle viewer would also be required.

    Note that I'm not looking for something to take on an airplane. This would be used for hiking into the woods, so I'm looking to minimize weight (to the extent possible) as well.

    I've looked at the LowePro Photo Trekker AW II, and it looks like it might fit the bill, but might be a bit heavy.

    Does anyone have any thoughts on the Trekker, or perhaps another recommendation for me to check out?

    Thanks!
     
  10. ditto on the Pro 12, I can fit both my D300/200 plus some glass or one DSLR and a realfilm 35MM with ease :biggrin:

    If you are going to spend time hiking with it just make sure that it carries well once it is loaded. A lot of bags feel like they would be very sturdy empty, but their shape quickly breaks down once they are loaded. I have the computrekker and it has held up better than I expected. I assume that if the Phototrekker has a comfortable harness it would make a good bag.
