You can't go wrong with Lowepro camera bags http://www.lowepro.com/

If you want a hard shell case the brand is Pelican http://pelican.com/home.php

Thanks, but what I am really after is a photograph that shows you can carry two bodies with lenses attached. I looked at this case & I presume I can arrange the velcro to suit my needs

I also looked at this one, but was not sure about how to set everything up, it just shows a foam covering

You said storage. I use Pellican cases for storage and travel.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Specifically this one: http://www.pelican-case.com/1520.htmlwith pick & pluck foam and and another 1520 with the removable camera bag. One forstorage, the other for travel.

Pellican cases are available in many sizes, including rolling cases. I use silicagel packets to ensure humidity remains low in the sealed, waterproof, floatable cases. They are only slightly heavier than aluminum cases ... I got rid of my aluminum cases several years ago as they did not provide sufficient, waterproofprotection.

No ... but first you measure the sizes of your camera with lenses, then look for the size that will fit.

Pick and Pluck foam is pulled out where needed and the "hole" shaped to your camera, lense, accessories, etc. My 1520 will easily hold three Canon 30D bodies with moderate lenses attached, or two cameras, one with the 50-500 Sigma tele and the other with most any other moderate-sized lens.

Pellican makes cases of all sizes, from a size that will hold a wallet to a size that will hold large professional studio video cameras or lenses. I order mine from Pellican Cases 4 Less : http://www.all-pelican-cases-4-less.com/sizes.htmlas their site is easy to use.

Due to my job I keep my camera in the trunk of my car at all times. I use a lowepro Nova AW1 bag and keep that bag inside a pelican case that was hand me down from another person who needed a larger case. Pelican are very very good cases and in cold weather it keeps my camera gear protected.

I've been using pellican for a long time
I have a mid sized 1520 case that holds quite a lot, I managed to get
2 slrs,
1 100-300mm lenss
1 75-300mm lens
1 38-70 lens
1 28-75
2 ex550 flashes
and a pile of filters into it.
I bought it with the padded velcro internals option.

I also have a 1300 case with the pluck foam that holds a single slr with a 100-300 lens mounted.

I'll be looking for a larger case one day, as my 300 f/2.8 is too fat to fit in the 1520.

If you fly the 1520 at 19.12" x 15.43" x 7.56" may not fit in carryon, the 1510 at 22.00" x 13.81" x 9.00" claims it will but you never know with the changing carry on restrictions.
