Re: help me: tamrac velocity 8 or 9? who has ever used them?

i'd consider & recommend a two-strap backpack to spread the weight over both shoulders unless you won't have the body/lens in the bag very often. it will be heavy (and the single sling strap tough on the shoulder when it's fully loaded)

that said this should all fit in both the 8 and 9.

it works just as photographed here, but with the 8 space will be tight if the hoods are bulky. the 9 will let the longest lens stay attached (ie. 70-200)

Hi everybody, I need to buy a shoulder bag for my equipment

After some looking around, I found tamrac velocity series... and I
need to buy one of them, or the velocity 8 or 9!!! but, which one?

I'll put in a canon 20d+bge2 plus some lenses (for now, but soon will
be a 1dmkIII)

canon 28-135
tokina 12-24
canon 50
sigma 70-300 or flash metz 54 or canon 135 f2

do you think that I can stick these lenses (with hood) in the
velocity 8? I'll put in battery charger and some other little stuff
like mobile phone and wallet with money and documents...
