bag for A77, 70-400 and tripod
« on: January 25, 2012, 09:35:45 PM »
Hi all

Has anybody got suggestions for carrying camera body with 70-400 attached, preferably with hood attached so it can be taken straight out and used?

Would be useful if I could also have the 16-50 in there somewhere and tripod (manfrotto 55Pro) attached to outside.

Thanks

I don't ave any dedicate lens bag. I carry my lens sometime attached on body with hood reverse attached & the camera sideways on the left to minimize the distance between lens/body & bag (if you have Battery grib)
1st reason is because it takes a lot of space
2nd if you taught the lens hood when is attached you are applying also force on the frond lens element.

check Lowepro Beltpacks. http://www.lowepro.com/outback

With the modular lenscase it might suit your requirements.

Lowepro and Tamrac have bags for every occasion, I use both and find them excellent.

I use the most Compact Tamrac Expedition 4. It houses my A77 with VG and the 70-200 f2.8 lens attached. Also in the bag i hv the kit 16-50, 2 additional prime lenses, Flash, SD cards, filters, batteries, other accessories etc. I have used it for a lot of heavy duty travel over a year now. There is also a tripod pocket outside.

For your 70-400 you could check the other Expedition 5,6,7,8 & 9 range.  Well built military quality bags.

You can do it with a Manfrotto 120 bag.

Expensive, but good quality and will do the job.

LowePro or Tamrac as said above - I've used both (just sold a LowePro rucksack with my old KM7D) and both are excellent.

My current "bag of choice" for A77, lenses, laptop and associated kit (it takes a tripod too) is the Cyberpack 6 which I've had for years.

I have it configured so that I can take a short (16-50 or 24-70) lens or long (50-500!) lens by moving a single divider (folding it out of the way like a door)

Recommended!

Cheers,

Mark C

I had the same dilema and settled on a Lowepro flipside 200. Works like a charm. I can carry the A77 with 70 to 400 attached to camera. Hood in storage position. Short lens on side and place for a flash.
