Hey guys, I was wondering what camera bag I should get when I purchase the FZ-15. Basically, I won't be carrying around anything significant in the bag except an extra battery. I will be leaving my lens hood at home because the darn thing is huge and I don't want to lug it around. I'm hoping to get a camera bag in which I can attach to my belt because for some reason, I don't like lugging bags on my back like a backpack.

The only thing that I may consider is carrying around an extra pair of lens (in particular, macro lens because I know the FZ-15/20 is weak with macro shooting unless you get an add-on lens). I have no idea how big the macro lens is nor the size of the lens adapter too.

I don't know if this is the smallest, but it does fit the FZ15 quite snug. The Lowepro EX140.

It fits perfectly (with enough room for an extra battery or two) if you have the lens hood. Not only that, but it is dirt cheap ($2.95+$2 shipping), I got two because they were so cheap. Oh, and it has a belt loop thing to make it possible to attach to your belt.
So if you are willing to bring your lens hood along, this is a great case to hold the essentials.

I like the LowePro. It is more expensive but it has padding to provide some protection. The FZ15 fits snugly with the lens adapter on. It has a couple of pockets for extra battery and memory cards etc.

I use the Lowepro EX220. It hold the FZ20 with or without a Nikon 6t attached. It also has room for a spare battery, remote switch, and my card reader.

If anyone is curious as to what bag I ended up with, I ended up with one from some company called "Centrios." Remember that I set out looking for the smallest bag possibly as I did not really need the space for extra accessories. I also wanted a belt clip of some sort. This bag has it all! The model number is "CE100-BLK" and below are some images of the bag.

I put my extra batteries into the front compartment as well as a spare SD memory card. As for the camera itself, I can either have the camera dive right in facing downward into the bottom of the bag (with the LCD facing upwards towards the sky) or I lay my camera sideways inside the bag so that the right-side grip is facing upwards towards the sky. With the latter, the camera is like a gun within a holster because I can just grab it without fumbling the camera and touching the LCD screen. Unfortunately, I don't think a lens hood will fit.






I got the bag for $14.99 at a local CircuitCity.
