Case Logic Camcorder Kit Bag > Camcorder Cases > Case Logic

I use this cam bag for my K-r + DA 40, fits nicely together with extra SD card and batteries.

I hope I can snug fit my future DA 21 in the side pocket.

I scored on one of these at Wally Wold today for only $14. I love it!

At that price it will make a great general use case even if I decide it it is not large enough for vacation.

A Fuji film cannister top will work great as a push in cap on the DA40 hood.

You can definitely squeeze in a KX + DA 21 minus hood, it will be a little tight with a filter plus lens cap but I think it would fit. Anything longer is a no go for the 1W.
Do you have a picture of it on your waist?

How thick is the padding? it looks a bit thicker than the Lowepro 1 lens case I see at the store.

I've mucked about with a boat load of lenses but resolved on 35/50/100 on 35mm film...

I'll take some pictures tonight if I get the chance.

Finally picked up a used DA21mm to accompany my 40mm Ltd, not used it yet as I haven't got my camera with me but seems a cracking lens!

Yes it seems well loved for its size, versatility and general quality.

I just picked up a 49mm reversing ring for my 43ltd and my 28 & 55 SMC tak's, using my 2xTC on my 55mm with my 43 in front doesn't have much vignetting and it gets close enough that I can't fit an entire wasp in the frame. I thought of this thread when I was throwing it in my pack today, thought something like this would work well for close zooms if you used it on a 70 or 77 with a 15 or 21 in front, or even pick up a teleconverter for it too

I have considered prime-stacking or reversing as an excellent macro option, but first I must get myself some primes!

I have an inexpensive 28mm that I can use for stacking. I will never mount this lens on a camera on its own. With a stacked lens, you're exposing the unprotected mount end to pollen and dust. It's going to pick some up. If you then mount the lens directly on the camera, the contamination can transfer to your sensor. Besides, working distance with stacked lenses is very tight. Stacked lenses are for serious macro, where I want 2:1 or beyond, and can take time for proper setup.

I use Raynox adapters for casual macro. They do a good job and are quick and easy to attach and remove. DA 40mm Ltd, Raynox 250:

Hi Eruditass. I wasn't ignoring your PM, I just needed to do some research (couldn't remember the store name). I also took a photo while wearing the pack. I'll post it later.

I bought the fanny pack from a Canadian luggage store called Bentley, Travel Accessories - Travel Wallet - Low Prices for Luggage, Backpacks, HandBags, Accessories - Onlinebags. There are no identifiers on the bag at all, just a label that says "Made in China". I doubt very much that you'll find one exactly like it, but you can surely find a similar pack. Just take your camera and lens to a likely store and try stuffing them in.

Thanks audiobomber, I didn't think you were, but wanted to see if anyone else had luck finding something similar, as I'm sure others have looked!

Here's the photo you asked for. The bag is holding my usual kit; a K-x with Gordy's wrist strap and mounted DA 40mm c/w hood. There's a Raynox 250 with screw-in adapter in the same compartment. I can fit spare batteries too, but I don't normally carry any in this kit.



Have you been to a store that sells fanny packs (aka belt packs)? There's really nothing special about this bag, except that it's the right size to fit a K-x and DA 40 and looks nicer than the usual plain black.
