check out lowepro compudaypack if you need an all in one pack. Can hold laptop, slr + 2 lenses and a decent size compartment for other stuff.

Riju, why dont you check with Jayesh, he deals both in Kata (Kata Home Page) and Lowepro (http://www.lowepro.com)

Wildcraft don't manufacture camera bags, but they do custom design on request. You'll have to provide the design to them.

Samurai thanks for the PM, much appreciated. Will get back to you soon.

Sanjay we spoke to Jayesh the other day and he dint have one. Also I have become a miser now and have decided not to spend more than 2k on a bag .

The Velbon Sherpa 750R is on my list you see .
I have already checked the Lowepro at RK and thats how I ended up posting here.

Got a +ve lead saying Wildcraft does have it and this was from a friend who went to pick up hiking gear from them. So will head down and check with them tomorrow if possible.

Actually these Lowepro backpacks are really big, I still need 3-4 more lenses before I start lugging it around. Currently I am managing with my original Lowepro Photorunner.

Hey, I am looking to buy a new camera. After going to through this thread and various reviews on the web, I have decided to get myself Canon S5 IS cam along with a 2GB SD card.

I'm getting it for roughly $360 (both cam and memory card) from US (a friend is coming back from there this weekend, so he will buying it from there). Any idea, how much does it costs in India?

Be rest assured you will not get it any cheaper here, even in grey.

Lowepro - Photo Runner
I gave up the Compudaypack, instead am spending 15$ more and getting the Caselogic SLRC-4 for around 65$.
It has more capacity than the daypack.
If you are okay with spending 100$ you get a nice big backpack for laptop and SLR which can take a 100-400L lens

Canon S5 IS sells at around 17k (grey price).

Tanveer I checked the same Caselogic SLRC-4 and found it really cumbersome to use.Was priced at 4800/- here in Bangy.

The Lowepro bag was much easier to use in terms of pulling out the cam' and lens.

My 100-300 will be an uncomfortable tight fit in the Lowepro, with it on the body. If I go for 70-200L that will also be toast in the lowepro. So no lowepro.

As for 4800.
Order from amazon, pay 15-20$ shipping it will be 90$. which is cheaper than bangy price.

Which is that brand now ?I never knew that there existed a brand called Hellcat !!

My pick would be Duracell. Have used both Camelion and Uniross and never became a fan of them.
