Sup all...haven't come into this portion in the forum but i do have a question for you

What sort of bag/case are you guys using for your gear?

I am having a hard time finding a new one to fit my requirements. I'd like to carry my camera obviously, along with 2 lenses (not including the one mounted to camera).

I would also ideally like to haul my iPad in this bag as well as i can have direct access to my photos for review during my outings..

any suggestions?

also--some of these prices for some of these bags are :AF:

There are some pretty pricey ones!
I got a Lowe Pro sling bag. It holds just about all of my lenses, my external flash, the camera body with lens, and a few other things. I'm pretty sure an iPad cannot fit in it.

I have a Lowe Pro backpack since I do a lot of traveling/hiking for my photos. Able to fit my camera body w/ attached 18-135mm, 24mm f/1.8, battery grip, charger, a rode mic. and my external flash. I don't really have an iPad to say that it can fit in there... But it's rather flat. So maybe it'll work?

I have a Lowepro SlingShow 102AW. I love it! If you need more space, go with the 202AW model.

Here's what I have:

Lowepro Slingshot 102AW:
http://products.lowepro.com/product/SlingShot-102-AW,2191,4.htm

For light duty stuff. I can carry a body w/o grip on top, plus 2 F/2.8 lenses on bottom. If I shoehorn it, I can fit a body w/grip with a 17-50/55 F/2.8 mounted and a flash on the bottom, with a small zoom or prime up top.

Comfortable unless you overload it. Then your shoulder will start to ache after a while. I usually carry the camera with a lens on a strap on the other shoulder if I can, to lighten the load on the sling, and only fully load it on the way in/out.




Lowepro DSLR Video Fastpack 250 AW
http://products.lowepro.com/product/DSLR-Video-Fastpack-250-AW,2282,16.htm

Medium duty and event work. I can carry a 2 bodies w/ grips and 80-200 2.8 mounted w/ hood inverted, a 17-50/55 F/2.8, and 2 flashes, all in the bottom half. The top has a less padded section for things like microphones, cables, remotes, lens hoods, filter pouches, etc. It also holds a laptop in the back.

Very comfortable with great support, even fully loaded. My fav. :)




Lowepro Vertex 300 AW
http://products.lowepro.com/product/Vertex-300-AW,2074,16.htm

Heavy duty and air travel. I can fit just about anything I need in this, even my laptop. Has pockets EVERYWHERE. Heavy duty padding will protect everything if it gets accidentally dropped. Laptop section folds out to go through the X-ray machine without unpacking, and the bag is sized to for carry-on.

I usually take this and the 250AW on trips, since it's kinda bulky to take with me every day of the trip, and I need a place to put clothes. :3 Also very comfortable, though can be a bit taxing if you load it up too much.
