Initially, I had my eyes set on the Lowepro Photo Trekker AW II, in part because it's recommended all over the place (including here). But I went by a store that carries it yesterday, and that thing is huge! At this moment, since I'm just getting started in LF (and photography in general), I don't have a lot of stuff, just the basics: Sinar F2 4x5, one lens, six holders, loupe, light meter, dark cloth, changing bag. I don't expect to get too much more. Perhaps a few more holders, a couple of more lenses and that's it. That's all I can think about. Anyway, I saw two other bags at the store that are not that big but could be used to carry my stuff. They were the Tamrac Expedition 6x and the M-Rock Zion. Tamrac Expedition 6x M-Rock Zion I know I have to leave some extra room to carry other stuff (pen, note pad, lunch, etc), but it still seems to me that the Lowepro is way too big! Does anyone know if the alternatives I've offered would be able to carry all my equipment? Or I would be open to hear any other suggestions you may have. I know that the best way to know for sure would be to bring my equipment to the store, but, well, I don't have a way to bring it there, you know? (It's all stored in that big case and I don't have a car.) Thanks.
