    I have quite a few Amazon ones

    I'm never happy and spend just as long choosing the bag as I do my kit.

    Someone bought me a Billingham once, it has my Canon F1 and 50mm F1.2 lens in it, with a couple of tolls of Tri-x and some Hp5

    My Billingham, I’ve had it 20 years and got it second hand for 30 quid. Looked at new one. Mega expensive now

    Small camera is in this one, holds camera and charger but nothing else. Need something bigger, but not billingham expensive

    I have a Lowepro one which can be worn as a backpack or swung round so that it's across your chest with the compartments at hand for easy access to camera, lenses etc.

    I don’t like the rucksack bags. Prefer the shoulder bag style

    Not fussed about used. What I’m struggling with is trying to understand the size.

    Sizes from the Internet are at best optimistic

    Can you provide a couple of pics? Interested if it’s big enough

    A couple of years ago I picked up two excellent condition Billingham bags on eBay for not too much money. Worth keeping a look out.

    Cheers chef. Don’t like that style of bag. Always makes me nervous worrying about spilling the kit

    The style I’d like if sensible money is the 225 or 335, but bit rich.

    A cheapo one will be good, but I’m struggling with sizes from the internet

    I have a couple of the Lowepro cases for compact size cameras and rate the make :thumbup:

    When going to shows I normally carry a couple of DSLR bodies with different lenses on as I don't like swapping lenses "in the field"

    If anyone’s interested, I have a Manfroto Bumblebee 220PL for sale. All but brand new.

    It’s a rucksack style and pretty chunky but if you’re travelling it would certainly keep your gear safe!

    Parm, i have this. It’s a Vanguard bag. 13x8x8, camera compartment has moveable dividers, two side pockets and one front pocket. A sling for carrying or a rucksack type sling for when the going gets tuff. One of the fasteners is a bit iffy, still works. Cover the postage and you can have it

    Probably, this was one of my first ever ebay purchases when I lived in Hounslow. Sizes were a little optimistic. Until recently it’s sat unused in its original plastic bag. Nice bag, fits the camera but now way too small for my needs
