Quote:looks like nothing of interest from outside.

Hmm. That's alwayus a bit of a concern.
I was on the London Underground last weekend and there was a guy standing next to my wife with a huge Canon Dslr with an equally huge lens swinging from his shoulder. I looked around and a lot of people were loking at it, probably because it was such an obvious target.
I lived in London for years and I've seen a number of purses and handbags removed from their owners on the tube. Sometimes the owners weren't even aware that they'd gone. This camera's owner was, presumably, not a local.

Hello!
for a bag to carry the camera and lenses I think maybe one whith some extra reinforcement is not such a bad idea for a all terrain purposes.
For almost no money I've made a tripod bag by using the legs of some old jeans. With a sewing machine and a little imagination you can manage to do a good job at a low price.

Ok for all you street shooters out there Smile

Are you planning to be hit by a bus or slip up in dog poo, why do so many of you carry bulky heavy bags or back packs looking like your about to ascent Everest.

Horses for courses, or the right bag for the right time.
I've never, ok just once, put the camera in a normal unpadded bag.
When i'm actully in shooting mode the safest place for my camera is in my hand - i can use my whole body to protect it Wink

Domke - here's an example http://domkebags.co.uk/en/domke-accessories/65-domke-fa-220-2-compartment-insert-750062003463.html - they have several types with velcro attachment so you can mix and match

Hi Keith, thanks that's fantastic - checking them out now..... A bit expensive but maybe.
Thanks,
Stuart
