    I think I aught to buy one, so if my shots are s**t , I might understand why if my gear has been kept in one of these.

    I only have one old 8x10 plate holder with me and it fits and looks as though I could squeeze in 3-4 of those so an equal or greater number of Lisco/Fidelitys shouldn't be a problem.

    Agree that it has a 'stealth look' ("DiaperDude") as opposed to a Billingham or another wellknown camera specific bag. They have camouflage and and Jolly Roger versions as well.

    As long as you have a baby with you, you can pass with a Diaper Dude. The idea of using a diaper bag as a camera bag and theft deterrent has been around for a while. I remember Bob Monaghan had an article about it on his big medium format website. I forget who it was who suggested on one of the forums that one could make a career as a camera thief looking for tourists not of child-bearing age carrying diaper bags full of Leicas and Hasselblads.

    Well done!! Will a 4x5 camera fit in the center, and holders in the pockets?

    I've already finished with carrying diaper bags - my youngest is now 9 years old!

    Save the bag, you're aging faster than you think
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    Buy one quickly before it's rebadged as a camera bag and priced at $150.

    You can fit a 4x5 field camera in the main compartment, about 3 holders in the front center pocket and a few more in the large rear pocket although that doesn't zip and has a single magnetic snap closure. The front side pockets are too small for 4x5 holders.

    Ouch! You're as bad as my older son (almost 12) - he keeps reminding me me that he'll be choosing my rest home.
