    Looking for bag for two cameras.

    So I need help figuring out what bag to get for my cameras. I need something that will hold my Graphlex Century, graflock 120 back, leicaflex sl, 35mm and 90 mm lenses, film, filters, and meter, and tripod. Can anyone recommend a shoulder or messenger bag that would work? I walk a lot and would shoot all day so comfort is an issue.

    I like a top loading back pack for my 4"x5" Speed Graphic or my 4"x5" Graflex Model D or my Hasselblads with many lenses [I have three packs]

    Look for a back pack that put the weight on the hip with a padded belt.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    A Domke F2 or maybe the F1X (slightly larger) would probably do it, you would probably want to add the padded shoulder pad.
    There is an accessory strap kit that lets you carry it as a backpack too.

    Yea I need a back pack as well. I bought a nice domke pro v1 padded video bag for my lf setup, loads of pockets and good padding but the weight of a metal wista, 10 holders, roll film back, light meter, a flash, and a tripod lashed on is killing my shoulder.

    Personnaly i have a hadley pro with which i am quite happy.

    But, i discover some times ago the Ona Bags. Looks very cool and well made. You have backpacks, shoulder bags, small bags (personnaly i like the Bowery Black but will be too small for your use).

    All the best,

    One of the best bags and it will last a lifetime is the Billingham 445.

    A rucksack is more comfortable than a shoulder bag BUT there is an alternative to both and I have to say I find mine very comfortable indeed. The load is better distributed and it is easy to sling from one side to the other yet still always have top access and you can work without putting the bag down. I find this very useful as sometimes I am standing in a river when making a photograph. It's a Think Tank Sling-O-Matic.

    I don't see how you could fit all that in a messenger style bag. Nor in a shoulder bag if you want to work out of it.

    I have a 2x3 Century Graphic in largish bag (with shoulder and waist strap). Along with the camera, I have roll film bag, meter, film holders, odds and ends, and can fit an extra lens on board if compact. I just don't see how you could also fit a SLR with 2 lens unless perhaps in one of the really huge shoulder bags. Certainly not in a messenger style bag.

    So I would go the backpack route. If you don't want a backpack, then I would consider 2 separate bags each appropriate to it's own "system" (CG or SLR). Just my 2 cents.
