My girlfriend has 'stolen' my D7100, two zoom lenses, one flash and a few other odds and ends. She went with her girlfriends this weekend and we loaded up my gadget bag with her gear to keep it safe while they had more than several drinks. She told me, with a huge, adorable smile, that I probably need to buy myself a bigger camera bag... ;-)
The bag that she has 'stolen' is pictured below. It came with my D3200 kit and is (was) my only bag. I think I may want another Nikon bag, not sure yet, but not another one of these because my D610 was a little too wide for this narrow bag. I could use some advice and would love to hear what bag you own. I don't want a huge bag, maybe something that is a little bigger than this kit bag with lots of pockets and can accommodate a D610's width and several accessories and lenses. Thank you.
Norman

I like the Ruggard shoulder bags. I have the Navigator 55 model. They're more basic and aren't over the top with dozens of pockets. What I like also are the rubber feet on the bottom. I took out some of the dividers and can put my D7000 flat on the bottom. There are different size bags in each model series. On the B&H photo website select the model and click on the "SPECS" tab. It will show the interior and exterior dimensions. I noticed with my bag that the actual bag dimensions are about 1 inch less than what is shown in the Specs.

Thank you, I hadn't seen those yet. All of those pockets would be great! The Ruggard Commando Pro 65 is now near the top of my list.

Anything from think tank photo gets my vote. They make some great bags. Of course it sounds like she gave you permission to get a Billingham ;-) $$$

I'm afraid the Billingham line is not my cup of tea... But my girl wants to know if they come in bright pink... :thumbup:
Looking at the Think Tank line now, thank you!

Did she take any photos while she was gone? At least you got your gear back. :-) Tell your girl the Billingham Line does have a Justin Bieber Model in Hot Pink.

They took a lot of pics, I set that camera to jpg only so they are very easy to edit for her. And she is more of a Metallica fan... ;)

You will have a much bigger selection of camera bags available to you if you are willing to do without the Nikon logo. Besides, the Nikon logo only attracts thieves all the more.

Yes, thank you. I have been looking at some of the stealth bags. Where I live, 20 miles from the nearest store or gas station, if a thief happens to stop at my house it would surely be to ask for directions. But I know what you mean :thumbup:

I thought a bag with a "Nikon" plate on it was a diaper bag. 8-) 8-) 8-)

My D600 and F6 happily make their home in a Canon bag. It was a little larger than I could find in stores.
