I have been searching high and low for the perfect camera bag. I need two, really. One is for my daily commute. This is the kind of bag that can accommodate my notebook computer and associated accessories, maybe a book or two, my lunch, and so on. It’s the kind of bag that can also accommodate my camera, and provide easy access to it. It doesn’t have to be able to fit all my camera gear – just the essentials: Body, one or two lenses, flash, extra battery maybe. This bag, I have found. It’s the Lowepro Fastpack 250. This bag does all the above, and can take for more photo gear than I expected. It’s compact, fairly discreet, goes through airport security without any problems, and after six months of daily use, show no signs of wear.

For travelling, and photographic excursions, however, I need something that can take a lot of photo gear, and also fit my notebook computer – not the other way around.   Meet the Crumpler Brazillion Dollar Home.  This bag looks fairly compact, but it’s really roomy, and can gobble up an amazing variety of stuff.

I want one…
