im looking for a good slrcase that wont cost me an arm and a leg. so, heres my situation. i go to school downtown milwaukee and there are photo opertunities left and right, literaly, and i take the bus. im looking for a case that will fit in my messenger bag and protect my camera from my books. i also have a standard bookbag that i could use. my messenger bag has 2 pockets on the sides that can hold a standard bottle of water, and 2 pockets in the front that can hold a thick paperback book. my bookbag has 3 main compartments. one i use for books, the other is half as deep and the front is also a deacent size.
my camerawill be a nikon d40,if that will help you any.


any ideas on what camera bags will protect my camera from my books in the space that i have availabe?

i was thinking of a bag like this http://www.m-rock.com/appalachian-29-45.htm orhttp://www.m-rock.com/sierra-40-40.htm. would this bag styleprotect my camera from a textbook?

a little more of whats actualy in my bag. i have 1 hard cover twice a week, another day, a soft back textbook. all days i have a soft binder, and an umbrella, so there isnt too much that can damage it.

will that bag have enough padding to protect the body/ lens from the hard cover text book? my books dont move around alot. they stay in one place when i walk, dont shift around and the only time they realy move is when i put the bag down, between my feet.

this is no longer an issue, because as mentioned in an earler thread that the company online i was going to buy the camera from is indeed a con site, so an slr is out of budget. i will be going with an ultra zoom instead.

i apologise if this thread became an inconvienance.
