    Is there a ight-weight bag or weatherproof cover for a Mamiya C220f with 80/2.8 lens

    I would like to replace the 670g / 1.49lb shoulder bag I use to carry my Mamiya C220f with 80/f2.8 lens around in, for something lighter and slightly smaller; without room for anything else. Preferably available in the UK or EU, and a.s.a.p., as losing that extra weight is of a matter of high priority.

    I have some Mamiya TLRs, and when I want to go minimal--I use a medium-sized Zing neoprene pouch. It easily slides over the camera, only weighs a few ounces, and works well to cushion the camera with minimal extra bulk. This assumes you have a strap attached to the TLR.

    If the Zing isn't readily available, I'm sure you can find something similar.

    I bet an insulated lunch/cooler bag might work well.

    Many thanks Barry.

    A quick google found that the medium-size zings are available in the UK, also the large-size. This good news means that I won't necessarily need the car when I take the Mamiya out

    I use a fairly small, reasonably light camera bag that was sold as a part of a kit with a consumer grade Canon digital SLR camera a few years ago. It has just enough room for my C330 with waist level finder, 65mm and 135 lenses, a few rolls of film, a hand meter and a couple of smaller accessories.

    EDIT: It looks similar to this one: http://www.expansys.com/canon-camera...100-eg-169690/

    I have bigger bags when I want to take along the trigger grip, the prism finder and a paramender.

    Further EDIT: I see that one is actually heavier than what the OP is using now - oops.

    I've been using a Mamiya C330F for more than 25 years and although I have an ER case for it if I want to travel light I just carry a strong plastic pedal bin liner n my pocket in case it rains.
