    PRICE ( £ 10.99 ) If your a do it yourself photographer its perfect, why pay £ 50- £60 0r over for one when you can have this. it is black and green water proof really good

    I have seen those bags they are a bit on the heavy side but they are well worth buying, if it was not for the fact that a couple of months ago they were selling genuine camera bags for less than a tenner which I bought, I would have bought one of the fishing bags....

    Excellent find, M_L, and, someone had the same find/idea a few years back on another (lesser quality ;)) site: http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthread.php?t=1040646

    (1) Pick any suitable bag

    (2) Put your camera in it.

    I'm still using a leather school-type satchel I had made in about 1970, to my own design.

    Yes, I remember for the 2012 Olympics, I didn't want to draw too much attention to my camera (remember all the hoo-haa around what would and wouldn't be allowed?) so I took my monkey bag (I forget the actual name...it came with a monkey attached) and customised the interior to protect my camera and two lenses so that at least the bag didn't scream "photographer"! They let me in with a 5D Mk II, the 24-105 and the 70-200mm lenses and didn't bat an eyelid. And all the pockets originally designed for keys and makeup and so on worked brilliantly for batteries and memory cards and filters.
