Mine is more muted on the outside though bright on the inside.





That is my XT with 100mm mounted, 70-300mm on the left and my kit 18-55mm in the middle. My bag also has the flash pocket on the side. If I'm out and about and won't likely need the Speedlite I'll use the pocket for other things.

The reality is that has held up amazingly well for +17 years of use. I'm thrilled with it and glad I could tolerate the colors of mine!

Edit: I just looked at the current version and I don't like it anywhere near as much as mine. While I don't have the pad for my strap, I do have better pockets and I like the handle on top. I also have loops on each side for attaching/hanging things.

OMG, they might have the worst website I've visited in a long time. Do they actually want to sell any bags. I remember these. An old colleague used to carry a full canon kit in one while working as a staff photographer - one of the "Million Dollar Home" range. Maybe a 7 or 8? Carried a lot of stuff and was damn near indestructible.

Off-topic (click to toggle):
I hadn't heard of this brand before the earlier posts, but after your comment, I knew I had to go look at their website.

https://www.crumpler.com
https://www.crumpler.com/shop
https://www.crumpler.com/disco-shift/
https://www.crumpler.com/bag-glory

OMG is right. This feels like an alternate universe fever dream, like this is what a web developer in 1998 thought the internet would be like in another 25 years.

Yeah, their site is hideous for sure. I picked my bag up from a local camera shop in Norfolk (long since closed) so I never checked the out online before.

The idea of watching them build a bag is... interesting. Given their site, my expectations would be REALLY low.

I'm sorry, but the 4th link in Brad's off-topic post is entirely hilarious. One of the old founders took the company back? While trying to scroll that page the zipper moved. WTF kind of page design is that? I love it! 🤣🤣🤣

How do people shop for flashes these days?

I was served an ad, so apparently that's my next accessory? I will resist, but I'm curious about how people do it now. It seems that only rich people and chumps pick the manufacturer's hardware?

Flash have become crazy expensive in the last 10 years. A top of the line flash from Nikon was $300 when I got one in 2008. The last one they released was $800. Now Nikon doesn’t even make flashes anymore, because of low sales. Gee, they had trouble selling a $50 light bulb with a $25 radio controller on it for $800, shocked, shocked am I!

I just keep using my old sub $400 flashes on new cameras, they work fine. Just find a nice used flash from your OEM. There are tons of cheap flashes, but as to the quality of them electronically, who knows.

I am definitely not ready for the requirements of the Godox Luc Senior Retro flash, but golly it's keen!

That is one large rope. Haven't worn a DSLR for all day shooting that also doesn't look comfortable to wear at all. It might surprise me, but it looks like it would rub wrong compared to a simple strap, let alone a nice padded one.

It's disappointing that the show hasn't lived up to expectations so far, especially for those hoping to see some exciting developments in full-frame DSLR sensors or innovative large sensor mirrorless cameras.
