I'm looking for a good camera bag to hold my 30D with an attached 300mm zoom, kit lens, plus small accessories. I'm looking for something less bulky for everyday carry.



Thanks

Checkout http://www.cambags.com

You have to decide if you want shoulder bag, backpack, or beltpack. For everyday use, I have Lowepro Orion, it's a beltpack with shoulder support. It fits my Nikon D50, 70-300G, 18-55 and 50mm. It's not a holster, so it doesn't hold the camera pointing down, but I like it better than a shoulder bag or a backpack. Also, you can swing the belt pack behind or in front of you. This bag allows me to bring a camelpack or regular backpack during hiking.

There seem to be a few different models. Which would you recommend?

I have a Lowepro Orion and a Lowepro Orion AW.
If I am not using my Lowpro backpack I mostly use only the Orion AW now.
The plain Orion soaked through on me in a few minutes of very heavy downpour at Hopewell cape.

I bought a small Lowepro Rezo 160: it seems to fill the bill for everyday walking around. I coudn't find an Orion anywhere locally.



Thanks
