If you're a fan of LV and you're a high roller, this might be the bag for you. It's got the hefty price tag of $2000+ which is an insane amount of money. The only down side is... if someone sees you with your Damier bag, they might steal it and realize there is things inside worth more than the bag...



I'm too lazy to get the pic of the insides of the bag. Just go to the LV site and enter "camera" into the search engine to get the pic and more info on the bag.

[QUOTE='K [X] Z I;2854618']WOW... I started this thread long ago and I finally found something mind blowing. A few years ago I bought a Headliner backpack from turntablelab.com. The backpack was used to transport some music equipment, a laptop, and school stuff. When I got started with photography, I ended up using that same backpack naturally and it worked out. While using it, I always knew it was supposed to be temporary until I found a suitable bag. To get some help, I decided to create this thread and so far nothing has caught my eye.

A month ago, I discovered the Elecom SDG008BK on ebay and I said "That's the one." Since it was around the holidays, I didn't want to spend my money for myself, so I bought gifts.

About a year ago, I ordered a custom strap for my watches from Wotancraft. I decided to check his site to see if there was anything new and I noticed he started producing camera bags.

I ordered the Scout in Navy grey... $189 shipped.




There are a few other options as well...



The link to the site is:
http://wotancraft.com

Since I am moving, I was able to reserve a bag which James from Wotancraft will ship to me next month.

Hope this helped some people out in choosing.

This is awesome right heresmokeyface. Considering this.

Cool, I'll post pics of mine when I get it. James from Wotancraft said he'll ship it out this week. When I ordered a watch strap from him, it only took 2 business days to ship from Taiwan to Los Angeles, so I'll probably get it by next week.

Nice. Thinking about getting that Ranger.

I also considered the Ranger, but I really like the Scout. I believe the Ranger is a few inches larger than the scout, but makes a huge difference if you're trying to carry more gear. Oh and expect to pay $30 extra for shipping. Still worth it to me.

I keep it in the side compartment w/ velcro separators. You should be able to swing the pack across your body for easy access to the main compartment.

i have one like this The Hadley Pro. Random Picture off the internet dosen't do it justice. They do all kinds of bags in different colours. The tan canvas is nice but i didnt want it to look too loud. They aren't cheap bags but will last for years and look better as they wear.

Yeah, that's the one I was looking at. $260 is a steep price tag, but it looks great.

If anyone says Lowepro again, I'm gonna shoot myself lol. If Lowepro has nice looking bags, this thread wouldn't exist. Everyone would have them. They're the largest manufacturer for camera bags and they can be bought anywhere. But anyways... everyone has their own opinion.

My Wotancraft 006 Scout bag came on Monday, but I'm too busy/lazy to take pics to post up. I think I might have time to on Friday.
It's extremely sturdy and heavyweight. Materials are superior in quality to any camera bag I've touched or even just looked at. It looks a bit lighter in color than the picture advertised, but it's still beautiful. I highly recommend this to anyone who is into that vintage/handcrafted/distress/worn look. I'll put a more thorough review up with pics when I get a chance to do a photoshoot for it.

I use think tank's retrospective 20. Doesn't look like a camera bag and its still a bit stylish. The pinestone looks good but I opted for black to be more low key.

Sorry, I've been busy. I was going to edit these on Lightroom, but I don't think I have time and I don't want to not post anything so this is what I got. The bag is heavy for it's size, but that's because it has incredibly durable materials. If you have any questions or requests for pics, let me know.
