I've been looking at Tamron and Lowepro, and am stumped as to which camera case to uprade to. I currently use a Lowepro shoulder bag, but I've outgrown it. Here's what I carry, and I want it to be able to be carried on flights:

Canon 10D body with grip
Canon 24-70L
Canon 70-200L IS
Canon 50mm 1.4
Canon Speedlight 550ex
Sekonic Flash Master light meter
Canon double batter charger
2 extra Canon batteries
Misc filters and other small stuff

I'm tired of lugging all this on my shoulder, plus I'm maxed out on space in my current bag. I want to roll whatever I buy, and I need to take it on flights.

Anyone have any good suggestions for me?

Thanks!

I think you mean Tenba? or Tamrac? (Tamron makes lenses). Actually, you don't have much stuff. Its a lot less than I used to carry in a shoulder bag, but I recently switched to a Tamrac case that opens like an oversized briefcase, with zippers all the way around and a side pocket, a shoulder strap, and a double strap that lets you carry it like a backpack. (And it does qualify as an airline carry-on).

The problem is, I was concerned about rolling a case in the sand, where I do a lot of work as well. The small wheels would sink and get ruined, and I decided that I could use a handy folding chrome dolly for moving the case through airports and hallways, and carry it one way or another (straps?) at the beach (or rather, have my assistant carry it at the beach). You might consider a backpack bag as well. When I was in Miami, we rented a large cart that looked like an over sized wagon with big fat tires, which was used to carry the camera case, reflectors, tripod, makeup case, cooler, etc. Sometimes there's a lot more to a beach shoot than just a camera anyway.

You should just take all your stuff to a large camera store and lay it out, and see what fits, and which style bag you like (all the brands mentioned are good, just different), then buy the next bigger one to accomodate new equipment or rentals. I just don't think you have enough for a "case", unless you have a lot more stuff than you mentioned.

Go to Walmart. Buy an American Toursiter carry on with wheels, buy some foam cut the holes out your self for your equiptment. You will have spent about $40.00 if your looking for that sort carry on look. I found that the Tamron and Lowepro cases draw to much attention to whats inside and the American Tourister doesn't get a second look. You will have space left over, I carry 3 bodies, 5 lens, 2 flashes, a meter, batteries & charger, and clean sox and underware in mine.
Just my thoughts.

I have the non-rolling kind -- but I love the bag.

I have the LowePro 2 and I am very happy with it. It would hold all that you have and more.

Thanks much for taking time to reply. Does this meet airline carry-on standards?

Yes I have carried it on. However don't expect it to count as a "camera bag" that would also allow you to take on a personal item like a laptop bag. Fits in the overhead but not under a seat.
