I'll just show this picture of my setup (crappy cell phone picture, sorry). To the setup below, I've since added my 430EXII, which fits snugly in the upper compartment, and I also attach my tripod by sticking one of the legs through the loop on the side:






The single cross-body strap is really nice, easy to get off your back in a pinch. I find that stays on absolutely securely if the strap is sufficiently tightened. You should try, if possible, to try the different LowePro bags, including the Fastpack which has two shoulder straps. Besides LowePro, Crumpler makes awesome bags,

Nice bag setup GoneTomorrow! You know, I'm really interested in the 28-135mm for walkaround. What are your thoughts on it?

I tried doing a product shot with the lightbox tutorial you linked to once on POTN.



Not quite up the standard of Marin's shots.

Nice shot, you just need to dust that sucker off next time!

And the 28-135mm is worth having. Wide open it is somewhat soft, and at 135mm it is also soft. But if the aperture is stopped down to f/5.6-f/8 it is tack sharp. The IS is of course very useful as are the ultra sonic rings. No barrel creep that I've noticed. However, it doesn't have a whole lot of reach, so shooting wildlife can be difficult.

Some other walk around lenses to consider are the Canon EF-S 18-200mm.

Hm... I'm thinking of getting the Slingshot 200 as well as the 18-105mm + Flash.

I basically need something that holds:
-D60 + 18-105mm with Lens Cap On
-SB-600 Flash
-2 lenses

Your picture has basically shown me that is possible

Cheers.

Oh btw what does the G. Fong Puffer do?

The 200 will easily hold your gear. In fact, even the 100 will, but the 200 is a good bag to start with to keep up with your future gear acquisitions.

The GF Puffer is a flash diffuser for on board pop-up flashes. I don't use it anymore since I got my speedlight. I was thinking about giving it away as a freebie here. It actually works very well.

Looks dead on the tutorial. Did you ever use the two side lights?

I've been playing around with my dad's D50 and his new 18-55 VR, and I must say I'm quite impressed with the lens. It has a good zoom range (not the amount of reach as his 75-200 (which I accidentally posted as being a 75-300), but still good for just basic stuff), it seems quite sharp to me, and I love VR. Whereas normally I'm good for about 1/30 or 1/25 of a second handheld, it seems like I'm getting 1/8 of a second and the shots don't seem blurry. It's got me seriously wanting to spend too much money and buy a DSLR. If it weren't for the fact that film is getting expensive I'd ask him if I could have his old 2020 with his 28-70 Sigma, as that could be a good foray into the SLR world (he also has an older flash for it that only points straight on).
