Comments about Crumpler Crumpler 7 Million Dollar Home Photo Bag, Color: Dark Brown / Oatmeal / Pale Olive:

I'm as obsessed with camera bags as my darling wife is with shoes!

Needless to say, I've used many different styles over more than 30 years of shooting, including shoulder bags, waist packs, rolling cases, backpacks and vests.

I use either a Pelican 1514 or a LowePro backpack for traveling. Both fit easily in airplane overheads or under seats. I carried Domke shoulder bags for many years, shooting travel, corporate and news assignments, and I still like working out of a shoulder bag for the easy access. I've also used a variety of waist packs, but they're just too small to carry anything more than a camera body and a couple of lenses, but they're ideal for walk-arounds when you can travel with a minimum of gear.

I decided to try the 7 Million because I wanted a well-made shoulder bag that I could schelp around town, or just throw in the car when I wanted to keep a camera nearby. I can use the 7M as a flight bag/briefcase, pack my gear in the hard rolling Pelican for carry on and work out of either bag on location, depending on my requirements.

The brown bag is being discontinued, so it was a great deal for a high-quality bag.

I like the fact that the 7M doesn't scream "camera bag" when I'm out on the street or traveling on public transportation. The construction and materials are top-notch, but I have a couple of minor complaints.

Although it has a carrying handle, when the bag is full, it puts a lot of stress on the single plastic buckle that holds the top closed. It also has a velcro patch, but that's really for use when you need quick access and are using the shoulder strap. An additional buckle would have been nice.

The actual color is closer to taupe than brown, with tan trim and a black strap, so it's less conspicuous than a standard black bag. The interior is a bright lime/kelly green, not olive, but that doesn't bother me. I have cases with bright yellow interiors, so I can live with screaming green.

As other folks have noted, the top flap is not really sealed against rain. I'd probably fall back on my ballistic nylon Domke J2 in bad weather, however.

As far as storage capacity, this thing is amazing! Right now I have a Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 (with hood reversed), a Nikon D300 w/Tokina 50-135 mounted, an SB-800, and a Tokina 12-24 in the bag, along with spare camera batteries, CF cards, filters, and a flash sync cable!

As a day-to-day bag, this one is hard to beat! Go for it!

Comments about Crumpler Crumpler 7 Million Dollar Home Photo Bag, Color: Dark Brown / Oatmeal / Pale Olive:

This bag is HUGE inside, fully customizable, yet not to big to lug around. It's housing my Canon 40D with 18-135mm lens attached and has plenty of room for flashes, other lenses, etc. I doubt I will ever fill it up and could have gone with one of their smaller bags, but after having bought other bags that claimed to fit my equipment and didn't, I didn't want to take any chances.

Comments about Crumpler Crumpler 7 Million Dollar Home Photo Bag, Color: Dark Brown / Oatmeal / Pale Olive:

I was looking for an additional bag to carry that didn't scream camera bag. I also wanted something that I could use in the bleachers and in the auditorium at the high school. My backpack bag was just too cumbersome in restricted areas. The Crumpler has been a good compromise. It holds a body with a small zoom attached well, a few others lenses and a flash without being too crowded. I even drag my Canon 70-200L f/4 without too much difficulty (leave the tripod ring off). I would like to have a zipper closed pocket for small items and I wish it was better sealed on the top in case of a sudden downpour. It is surprisingly light yet sturdy. It has served well over the past month. It balances well on the shoulder. It's really not a system bag, but that's nowt what I bought it for. You can't have too many camera cases, can you?

Comments about Crumpler Crumpler 7 Million Dollar Home Photo Bag, Color: Dark Brown / Oatmeal / Pale Olive:

It's a great bag if you're just carrying 1 body and 2 lenses max (nothing longer than 200mm), I'd like it more if it had at least 1 outside pocket. If you're looking for a well made stylish bag for the very basics then this is the bag for you.

Comments about Crumpler Crumpler 7 Million Dollar Home Photo Bag, Color: Dark Brown / Oatmeal / Pale Olive:

This is a nice bag. It's not a great bag. I bought it because I like to shoot urban street shots and it doesn't look like a photographer's bag. I also bought it because it can hold a 70-200 and more. It IS handy. It's easy to get in and out quickly. For these situations, it's a great bag to have - quite comfortable and stylish.
I'm a little disappointed that it doesn't totally close up. I didn't think that would matter, but it does. It's unprotected from the weather. I used it yesterday and I didn't feel good about putting it down in the dewy grass. Also, when you pick it up by the handle at the top, it's very clunky. I feel like everything is going to fall out, but, of course, it doesn't.
If you're looking for a stylish bag to carry and conceal your equipment to take from one place to another, this is a great bag to have. If you're looking for an all-purpose camera bag, there are better products available.

Comments about Crumpler Crumpler 7 Million Dollar Home Photo Bag, Color: Dark Brown / Oatmeal / Pale Olive:

I've had a Crumpler laptop bag for years, which has held up great. When I was ready for a larger camera bag, I looked around at the other brands, but ended up picking up both the 7 million dollar home and the 3 million dollar home.

The "7 Million" is great when you need a lot of gear with you, or when you need a little of camera gear, and a bunch of other stuff. It comfortably holds my D80, with lens, another three lenses, three flashes, plus all my cards, batteries, etc.

All the internal dividers are removeable and customizable, so it's also a great weekend bag, with just my camera a lens or two, a flash, and few days of clothes.
