Bags for Nex?

Discussion in 'Sony E-Mount (incl. NEX, A7, A7R, A3000) Forum' started by Marruk8865, Dec 19, 2010.

  1. On my search for a good bag for my Sony Nex-5 including 16mm, 18-55mm, 18-200mm, flash, microphone, battery and charger I came across this forum.
    I really hope you can help me out choosing the right bag.
    Once the 18-200 is delivered this will be my mounted lens so when on a trip the 18-55 stays at home. The bag they recommended me in the shop is the Case Logic SLRC-202. It looks very big but I like the hammock system in it (thinking of using this one for storage at home)
    So i'm looking for a compact shoulderbag like the Case Logic DCB-66 or something like that with enough space
    I also like the looks of the Crumplers and Golla Cam Bags but I can't find any (user)reviews or photo's that will help.

  2. Went to the Crumpler-store today. Bought a Company Gigolo 7500. This one fits my gear and looks great!

    Marruk, thank you for your photograph of all your NEX gear in this Crumpier. There's always been something about exterior design of these Crumpier bags that I like. I don't have one yet, but I do like their design style very much.:biggrin:

    Lowepro Passport Bag

    I like the Lowepro Passport Bag because it does not look like a camera bag and is more than adequate for a NEX system. You can see it here.

    I use the Think tank retrospective 5 for my NEX-7. It's quite compact but fits the camera with a fitted lens with enough space for an extra lens. It also has enough space to fit in some cleaning gear, your charger, filters etc... Alternatively you might also want to check Barton 1972, they have excellent camera bags for all sizes with really affordable prices.

    Check out Barton 1972 on their website for their bags.

    The Bare Bones Bag is very similar to the Lowepro Exchange Messenger Camera Bag. I guess there are only so many ways to design a bag.

    I guess I like the idea of buying hand made in USA when able, vice machine made in China.
