No Better Bag In The Field

Comments about Domke Domke F-2 Original Camera Bag, Canvas, Black.:

There is no better bag in the field than this bag. I am a photographer for a newspaper and this bag stays on my shoulder all day long. All pockets are easily accessible. Changing lenses, grabbing a notepad, changing batteries can all be done without sitting this bag down and searching thru a mess of equipment.

This bag is best transporting & carrying equipment while working in the field, it will NOT offer a great deal of protection for your equipment!! It is not meant for that - it is not padded or reinforced in any way (there is a bottom pad). It is designed to work with you in the field, lightweight, not bulky, and contents are easily accessible. I have been caught in rain with this bag and contents stayed dry - although it is not waterproof, it takes a lot of exposure to rain to get thru the canvas.

The pictures are the F2 I replaced, and the new one. As you can see these things will take a lot of abuse. Surprisingly, it also holds everything you need.

In the newer bag pictured there is a Canon 1D, a 70-200 f2.8L, a Tamron 11-18 F5.6, a Canon 24-70 f2.8L, a Canon 580EX ll flash, 2 NPE3 Batteries, 8 AA batteries, sunglasses, extra media cards, notepads & pens, wet weather protector AND there is still one empty pocket for my cell phone!!!

I've shopped dozens of bags and own several, Domke F-2 is the best. Perfect size, I carry DSLR w/zoom, extra zoom, 2 strobes, 2 PocketWizards, cables & miscellaneous. Not cheap, but well worth the price.

Comments about Domke Domke F-2 Original Camera Bag, Canvas, Black.:

It's the only camera bag I own that I actually use. I also have a generic shoulder bag that I put sleeves in if need be, but this works better.

I can fit a body with a telephoto zoom attached, a wide zoom, a flash, a fast prime or two, PC cable, and a few standard digital accessories…my standard equipment.

It won't hold all my stuff, but I never carry all my stuff anyway.

It's not perfect, but I'm not sure anything is.

My biggest complaint is that the pockets on the "front" (under the flap opposite your body if carried normally) are smaller on my bag than in any of the pictures I've seen. They're useless to hold anything but my memory card wallet, a battery, and a lens pen. Everything else is too wide. You can't even fit 77mm lens caps in them. So, I have things that should be buried somewhere in the depths of the bag taking up prime easy-access space because the pockets aren't the right size. Brilliant. The F-1x might be a better choice just because of that.

I got the bag to hold "everything" based on reputation, and I gave that up almost immediately. Fortunately, I don't care about carrying everything anymore. If I did, I'd be disappointed.

Comments about Domke Domke F-2 Original Camera Bag, Canvas, Black.:

After upgrading my camera gear I needed a new bag to store it all and travel with it. I currently do a lot of work that forces me to jump on planes and fly to various spots. I wanted a bag that could fit most of what I own but retain a small footprint at the same time. I also did not want a backpack. I settled on the F-2 because of it's construction, which did not disapoint. The bag feels like it will withstand a lot of wear and tear. There are pockets galore, and they are easily accessible. The strap feels great on my shoulder or slung across my upper body. My only complaint is that it is a bit bulky for daily use, especially if worn over the hip. It sticks out a bit too much to walk around with in crowded areas. Even though the clasps are metal snaps, it is quick to open and close and feels secure. I'm not worried about things falling out. I can easily fit my 30D with 18-55 attached, 70-200/4, 85/1.8, 50/1.8 and 10-20, or for go the 10-20 and put my 580 in there instead. I was hoping to be able to put two bodies in, which I can, but each without a lens attached.
