I have been looking at some camera bags for my S2 IS. So far I have found some too large bags, and some too small bags and some too expensive bags and some that just does not fit right.

I would like it to be water proof, and be reasonably rigid and padded, as I will take it with mewhen hiking in the mountains etc.

I have been looking at lowepro, cobra, voyager and Jeep bags.

Any advice?

I'm using a LowePro Edit 110, which I think is actually meant for camcorders. However the S2is fits perfectly into it. Its strong, well padded, and has plenty of compartments for extra batteries and memory cards.

I dont know how much it would cost outside the UK but here is is £21 from Jessops.

I use the LoweproD-Res25 AW Pouch for my S1. I will eventually get an S2 and if it does not fit in the 25 then I will get a D-Res 30 AW Pouch.

I like it forit's flexibility. I can use it on my belt or harness or withthe shoulder strap.

It is padded and waterproof (but how waterproof I could not say). B&H Photo carries these for $25.

I highly recommend Lowepro as well, especially for their lifetime warranty.

I got the Case Logic TSC4.. I like the top wide load better.. room for lotsa extras while the bag is still compact. It fits easily with neck strap in or out..

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"I've also made a 'hood' for my camera too.. Basically it hangs over the camera while its on my neck.. it's protected if it starts to drizzel or get bumped.

I highly recommend a hard case. I have a Canon S1 IS. I bought a Pelican Case #1200. It was about $55, but it waterproof, floats, is damn near crush proof and the pic and pluck foam can be customized exactly for your camera. In the 1200 I have the camera with the filter adapter attached, extra batteries, a small 4-batttery charger, the camera manual, and a Raynox macro attachment, extra flash cards, lens brush and lens cleaning supplies. It fits inside my day pack easily and I don't have to worry about my camera at all.

I am not sure the S2 IS will fit in the 1200, but the next size isn't a whole lot larger and not much more $.

I don't believe digital cameras are as hardy as the film cameras. I want to keep this one a long time, so the case was worth it. If you get a new camera that will fit in the case you can get a new pic and pluck foam block to customize.

I like the Pelican 1200 as well. Not real handy but tough. I have several digicams at work that live in Pelican cases. Our crews are tough on gear but they haven't damaged a single camera.

If you look around the net you can find them for about $35 shipped.
