    I use it to carry a camcorder, voice recorder and related accessories and cables. It's not the bag to store everything I have, but it is big enough to take everything I need for shooting basketball games and interviews.

    Not sure what a perfect bag would be, so I deducted a star because the canvas is a little heavy and the spring clip, though a Domke tradition, is a little annoying. Still, I wouldn't have any other. The Domke flip open top flap is the most convenient way to access gear.

    Some things that were not entirely clear to me from the description:

    -- There are two movable velcro partitions included with which you can configure three compartments.

    -- The optional, removable carry handle is just that, an optionally priced item (B&H # DOSHT). If you're spending this much on a bag, I think this handle is a useful and worthwhile accessory.

    -- The main flap has velcro attachment as well as the clip, so you don't have to close the clip all the time. The side flaps also have velcro.

    -- The open pocket on the back is very tight and can only hold something really slim. The front pocket under the main flap is fairly expandable for bulkier items.

        Comments about F-8 Small Canvas Shoulder Bag (Black):

        I use this bag to carry my small cameras with short lenses. Specifically it contains a Panasonic Lumix GX1 with the Panasonic 20mm/f1.7 lens, a Panasonic Lumix GF6 with the Panasonic 14mm/f2.5 lens, and the Olympus 17mm/f1.8 lens. I use the side pouches for SD cards and batteries.

        The bag is small, light, compact, and rugged; just what I need for my small cameras.

          Comments about F-8 Small Canvas Shoulder Bag (Olive):

          I really like this. I used an F-5XB for few years, this F-8 fits everything that I had in the F-5XB, but much more comfortably (without a zipper). It's perfect for a small rangefinder kit. I keep a meter in one pocket and some B&W filters on the other, and a Leica with two lenses in the main compartment. I don't really use the front pocket, but there is plenty of room to store film.

            Comments about F-8 Small Canvas Shoulder Bag (Olive):

            while i'm often tempted to take everything i can while out shooting (small tripod, flash etc) the fact is 99% of the time i shoot hand held in natural light with my m9 and a couple of spare lenses, so 99% of the time this is the bag for me. fits snugly, there are easily accessible pockets, it doesn't scream "camera bag", and there's no velcro.
            the one inconvenience is there's elastic inside the side pockets, which if anything inhibits putting things in and out. nothing a pair of scissors can't fix. not exactly a bargain either, but you do get what you pay for.

              Comments about F-8 Small Canvas Shoulder Bag (Black):

              I returned it because it was not quite what I was looking for. It was a little small and I found the side pockets to be a little small to be useful. It was hard to get my hand in to fish anything out. I like the Domke bags in general and own a larger one, but my two complaints would be the velcro and the metal clips that attach the strap to the bag. As much as I can see how they are practical, I would prefer not to have the weight or the scratching potential of the metal. But again, it's a nice small bag, well padded, not too bulky and if you don't mind the velcro, this could be the bag for you.

                Its been a while since I owned a Domke, but upon getting a new E-X2 for around town shooting. I thought I'd give it a try again.

                So glad I did! Just the right size for camera and lens to drop quick in to the bag and (more importantly) pull out at a moments notice. Room for a few other items to travel light too.

                          I have used an Original Domke bag for over 30 years....This one is just as good. It is made very well with the best of materials. The quality of construction is as good as the very original bag that I own. I use the bag to carry my D 7000 and some very basic items. I wanted a small lite bag to carry on a plane when traveling to various vacation or business destinations and this bag works very well for this purpose.

                          The bag is quite small and only fits the D 7000 with the the 18-200 attached. If you want a bag that has room for a lot of your needed equipment and supplies, then this is not the bag fo you. You should purchase one of the larger Domke bags.

                          I have yet to find fault with any Domke bag I've owned (purchased this as a "first bag" for my sister). These gags wear like iron. The Jeep of camera bags. No frills you don't need and everything you do. A no-nonscense bag for a serious working photographer. The only bag that might have it beat might be a Billingham, but they are 4-5 times the price. I own both but my money is on the Domke. Great solid bag!

                              Easy too use. Small but large enough to fit a Nikon D7000 with long focale.

                              Eventually, noisy attaches on recording sets.

                                      Was planning a day trip to Gettysburg and needed a bag for my Canon G11 & Nikon P7000 plus books, memory cards, and extra batts and this was the perfect size everything fit. And I also put my GE video camera in a side pocket and charger in the other pocket AND I also fit my GPS unit across the top. I do own one other Domke bag which is in storage with other camera equipment in (bigger camera) and absolutely love the Domke brand it doesn't scream "CAMERA GEAR HERE COME AND STEAL ME" and I do believe it's water proof AND the big seller is that it's MADE IN THE USA!!!! Look for the flag before you buy.

                                        This bag turned out to be EXACTLY what I was looking for: (A) Something compact, and just big enough to hold all of my new camcorder stuff (including cords, manual, etc.), with room for a small still camera too, and (B) something in a neutral, NON-black color. It's just perfect in every way!

                                        I first purchased the J-5XB (way too small) which I returned for the J-5XC (too boxy) but didn't like either of those bags. After looking at Lowepro I came back to Domke and settled on the F-8. My kit is comprised of a Canon 60D and 28 mm f/1.8 and 50 mm f/1.4 lenses which fit comfortably with room to spare. My only gripe is that I wish it were offered in Ballistic nylon but the canvas does have a character of its own.

                                          The Domke F-8 is a pretty small bag. Though it was just big enough to fit my Canon 7D with 50mm 1.4 lens attached. Each side is padded, so I know that my camera is completely safe. Not to mention there is still adequate space in the (two) side and (one) front pocket, as well as a slim pocket attached to the top flap.
                                          This bag is well built and is perfect for when I'm simply out and about and don't need to carry a lot. Stores the hefty 7D body (no grip) with a short lens attached and miscellaneous accessories.

                                          Great bag for street photography, getting better as it gets older. Use it for 4/3 camera and/or DSLR with one lens. Small pockets for cell phone and other equipment. Not a bag for action photography (e.g. skiing). Good looks, not a typical photography bag.

                                              Got this bag for an M8 and assorted Leica lenses I've acquired over the years . I've got a couple of other Domke bags for my slr stuff and they've proven durable over the years . Anyway , unlike the bigger bags which depend upon inserts for padding , this bag is lightly padded on the inside , and has 2 removable velcro dividers in lieu of the inserts . It's made in the USA . Hardware is metal and of high quality as is the canvas and stitching. There's 2 small side pockets , a front pocket , a main compartment , and a zippered under lid pocket.There's also a small back pocket that's only good for maps, papers and the like. Here's how I have mine set up . Left and right outside pockets , M8.2 charger and cable in one, Nikon SB-30 flash in the other. Main compartment divided 1/3 and 2/3 using one of the dividers . Smaller part holds my M8 , the larger contains 28.2.8 ( the current little one) 35/2 , 50/2 (both from the 70's) and a CV 25mm in the bottom of the compartment , a 28-35-50 Tri Elmar and a 90/2.8 fat Tele Elmarit on top.
                                              There's room above that(just) for a ball blower or Leica polarizer .Front compartment can hold a film M body and a couple of rolls of film . Under top cover for SD cards , spare battery , and spare body cap. Total weight with all the above is about 9 1/2 lbs , around 7 1/2 with only 1 body. Can't find any downsides to it ,except maybe that it holds too much . Hope this helps.

                                                It was smaller than I had expected. Other than that the brand quality is great. Definetely I'm buying Domke again.

                                                  Comments about F-8 Small Canvas Shoulder Bag (Olive):

                                                  Was too small and boxy, so I returned it. Could not comfortably fit a D90 and 18-200mm
