Hey all!

I have a Canon 350D which I will be taking on my RTW.

I'm looking to get case for it that is strong, but not massive, we all know space is a premium.

Also, I will have it in my everyday bag, (Not a day pack, but a postal/record style bag). It won’t have lots of space in there but will spend most of its time in there.

Does anyone have any recommendations? I was considering the Lowepro Zoom 1, but I would like your opinions and thoughts!

Cheers, Matt!

I can higly recommend a LowePro Apex 120 AW, or any one of the smaller bags in the Apex series. Great small bag without unnecessary things on the outside - with smart protection for your camera as well as a built in All Weather Cover, that can be rolled into a pocket on the back of the bag while not in use. For rainy days, such a thing is a must. And I must say I'm amazed what I can get into that little bag - my Nikon D80 with battery grip and a standard zoom easily fits in it!
