    Anyone recommend a good bag for Hasselblad (and Bronica)?

    I have a very old bag that came with the purchase of my Hasselblad 500C and to be honest, while I am currently using it for my film gear - it is quite ugly. I also have a Bronica ETRS gripped with the 75mm 2.8 lens and AE prism. I have the 50 distagon coming for the Hasselblad, and two backs. All in all ... not a whole lot of bulk for this dual camera setup. For my dig*tal gear, I use a big backpack style bag that hold my huuuuge telephoto and wide angles lenses, plus multiple flashes, ect...

    I AM A GIRL, and would like something not too rugged for the film gear. I like the look of the National Geographic bags, too ... kinda bohemian chic.

    What do you recommend? Cute - yet can handle two MF cameras comfortably?

    Katie, I use a Lowepro backpack bag for my Bronica gear, 4 lenses, filters and assorted 'stuff', not sure which model it is but all up weighs 7.5 kg. The bag is very rugged,
    padded with moveable velcro strips to suit any given set-up..the thing is, its really well designed with adjustable straps and belts so when this very small female is trudging along for miles in the middle of nowhere, the weight is so well distributed that I hardly notice how heavy it is.....as for looking chic and stylish...there's usually nobody around to impress anyway.

    Look into a Courierware Incognito, size med or small. They can customize and even do some funky cloths for the cover flap. Looks like any messenger bag, not a camera bag.

    I recommended the same rig to someone for a Mamiya 6 setup; here's his review on APUG.

    Here's the website direct:

    The Domke F2 is a really great bag and can be configured many different ways to hold what you need. It is an American made bag and it is made extremely well. I wouldn't trade my Domke bags for anything else.

    Domke is a good choice. I have one that's over 20 years old. Held up great. Canvas is durable and breathable. Over all great design. I like my Crumpler too.

    Another vote for Domke F2, because they are made out of nice high quality water resistant cotton canvas not plasticy nylon, are not too heavily padded, mould to the body are light for their size, and above all are real "shooters bags" that are easy to work out of and access your equipment on the move.
