LowePro has several bags that would meet your needs. I've found that amazon.com has the best prices for them. They have at least two that can accomodate a laptop. They have two that convert from roller to backpack--the one is probably too small for you though. The downside is that they are on teh pricey side.

Which Bag

Can anyone suggest a good bag for my Nikon D50. I have bought the Nikon system bag and its great as I can git my camera, 2 lenses and my 12" ibook in it. The only thing that puts me off is the Nikon patch on the front - am I advertising myself to thieves!?

Would I be best to buy another bag - I have been looking at crumplers and they are quite funky!

Lowepro is probably the best thing out there. They've got several styles wich will also accomodate a laptop. Amazon generally has the best prices.

Frankly thieves know what's what, and it doesn't really matter which bag you buy, you could be targeted.

I've been wondering the same thing for my new D50. The salesman at Ritz/Wolf tried to sell me a Tamerac? bag, and I did like the way it slung on your body, and seemed to be easy to reach when needed. I decided to wait, until I receive my $50 rebate from them before purchasing from them. Now, I will be paying the price next week when I visit the World though... I bought the anniversary camera bag at WDW last October, and love it, but it just BARELY gets my D50 in there with the 18-200 lens on it. And, it is NOT easy to get out! Maybe I should consider using a backpack just for my camera? I'm not sure what I'll do...

I would not use a regular backpack, not enough padding/protection...

A non-camera bag can be modofied with a layer of dive suit material (like a mouse pad) to make a nicely paded camera bag.

As for mainstream bags, I don't see any that are as well made as LowePro. Their AW models are very good, the Magnums are even better.

I wanted a more vertical style and have used Eagle Creek's Guide bag (with added padding) but need more room now. Crumpler's "million dollar home" series looks very nice and appears to be well made. I ordered the $4M style for my 10D, 24-105, and 70-200 and will report on it in about a week.

I like the Lowepro AW bags, never know when you need the cover. Another very well made (although dated looking in the clasic way) are Domke bags.

I have two Lowepro bags for my D50, the Off Trail 1 and the Sling Shot 100. The off trail is great as a fanny pack style and holds the D50 nicely and two other lens or a lens and flash. However, when going to WDW, I will already have a fanny pack on that holds my pins and tickets and such, so I went with the Sling Shot 100. It holds all my gear so that I have one bag with everything I need. I also like how it operates. It is a sling pack but you just pull it around front and open the flap to get to the camera. Can't wait to try it out in a couple months.

And Hi Tiffany, long time no hear!!

I'll definitely be checking out all of these suggestions! Where do you usually find these bags? Our local Ritz in the mall is very small and seems to have limited inventory.

Hi Ratpack! I hope your family is doing well!!

I have a Lowepro Off Trail and it is excellent for carrying the camera with a lens attached and two extra lenses or a lens and flash or whatever.

Tamrac Velocity bags

Has anyone tried these? I have been trying to find one in the stores to see what they are like, but the stores I tried didn't have any. So I thought I would ask all of you if you have used them and what you thought. I like the idea of a sling bag.

TIA
