I purchased this domke bag after I saw a friend of mine with one. She used it to hold two pro bodies with lenses attached face down (70-200 and another lens samesize can be packed together attached) in the bag with room to spare for flash, 2-3 lenses, extra battery, memory card case and a few other items.
when I received the bag I could not be more pleased. I wanted something lightweight but sturdy without rollers to carry along for portrait work, etc. I did not plan on using this bag for an excursion to the zoo, etc it would be heavy fully packed for a good walk. I have other bags for this.

I love this bag and it is the one I use most at the moment. I leave lenses home that wont be needed and can easily throw this bag in the front seat of the car ready for anything since the lenses of any size up to 300mm 4.0 can be attached to the body , no switching of lenses and missing a shot.

i can downsize the lenses for differnt type of shoots and the bag does not feel too big and bulky . It is made of very sturdy canvas and very well made. it has a belt on the back that can be used with an optional shoulder harness or if tightened can be used to sling over the handles of a rolling travel suitcase. the shoulder strap can be unattached and just the handles used. there are two very good size front pockets that hold my canon 580ex flash or this can be stored in either of the side pockets that have a velcro closure. I looked at other similiar size bags and this one is the ticket.

It stands open by itself, no laying on its side to get to the contents.
It has padded dividers that can be configured if necessary.

Right now I have these items packed in it. 1dmkiii with 70-200 lens atttached facing down. 85L lens and hood. 24-70 lens and hood. 580ex flash . 15mm fisheye , 1.4 tc and misc other small gadgets. it is easy to access and nothing is crammed in.

Love the bag, would highly recommend it to everyone especially if you travel to sports events etc and want a bag with camera and lens ready which can be easily accessed for all your pro bodies and lenses ready to go. I have had numerous bags and still keep a rolling bag for laptop and lenses for some travelling but this is the one that is packed and ready all of the time.

Nice stylish camera bag, good quality but way to small.
It is advertised to carry 2 large film or digital SLR cameras with 4-5 Lenses.
My D3s with or without any lens attached is too big to fit reasonable in any compartment. It will defiantly not hold 5 lenses unless the all fixed 50mm equivalent sized. The compartments do not give you any option to remodel
the inside.

This is the best camera bag. Went with the bigger version to replace my original, which I've had for 25 years and it's just starting to show age. Excellent product.

      Comments about F-7 Double AF Bag (Black):

      I have always had trouble finding a camera bag that I like. I bought the F7 bag a couple of weeks ago, and I love it. The bag is durable and has proven to be water-proof thus far.

      I have 2 camera bodies that I can fit into this bag. I usually have either a 20mm or 37-70mm on them while I store them in the camera-sleeves within the bags. I usually carry along with them an 80-200mm, 50mm and flash. It is snug, but they all manage to fit ok. I love the zipper pocket at the top of the camera bag as well. It fits everything really well.

        I am using the bag for storing two film SLR cameras with motor drives (Nikon FE and F3HP). All gear fits well into the bag. Overall quality is very high. I added the DOMKE shoulder pad. Very nice to carry around.

          This is my 3rd Domke bag. Whenever I think I'm ready for a new setup I automatically look for the Domke offering that will best get the job done for me. This one is my main wedding bag for 2012 carrying 2 DSLRs with no grip (although it could easily handle it with grips) with lenses. In the middle area I keep my flash and light meter. Of course, the Domke pockets allow me to bring along all the other goodies I need during the course of a shoot.

          Domke bags "just work". Period. Comfortable, not loaded down with unnecessary padding, tons of room considering the size and tough. My favorite. Maybe it will be yours, too!

            Love all the extra space. The only area that kept it from getting 5 stars are the metal ring clasps that secure the bag closed. I would rather it use the squeeze type plastic claps that are found on Crumpler Bags. Much quicker to get into.

            Im a photographer for Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority and we are constantly on the move and don't have a lot of time to worry about equipment. With this bag I can carry plenty of gear so that I'm prepared for any given situation. The sturdy construction of the bag gives me reassurance that the bag will keep my camera and lenses safe. My only complaints are that there is no top access (maybe a zipper. I want easy access to multiple lenses without unclasping the bag. I like the clasps for durability but this causes Access issues when on the fly.

              Comments about F-7 Double AF Bag (Black):

              If you (like me) need a bag to carry two Fuji 6x7 or 6x9 film cameras, look no further; this is the bag you need. One camera fits perfectly in each of the two large padded inserts in the main compartment. The two-compartment insert in the middle can then be used to hold a flash unit, film and other accessories.

              The bag feels sturdy, but is still quite light. I would definitely recommend this bag to anyone who needs to carry two large cameras.

                I use a Canon 40D and carry a wide-angle 10-22 mm lens, a 28-135 mm lens, and a 70-300 mm lens, all Canon. This bag gives me more than enough room for this equipment as well as all the accessories I want to carry. Everything is well protected and organized and the bag is easy to carry around for long distances.

                  Comments about F-7 Double AF Bag (Sand):

                  We needed bags that work while we're on roadtrips. We shoot out of our car(SUV) a lot while driving cross country.Our Tenba and Lowe backpacks take up too much room, and access is too slow with the large, heavy access lids.

                  The F7 stores my D700, 24-70mm and 70-200mm zooms, 300mm f4, and 12-24mm zoom vertically. I have room in the side pockets for accessories, notepads and pencils. I can carry all my filters in the front two pockets. It is heavy, but other than lugging it to and from my room it takes up very little space in the back with the lid on, or off. The vertical storage makes lens changes easier than a backpack. We also use a Domke F2 for my wife's D90, and three lenses, and a second F2 for flashes, chargers, cleaning gear and other accessories. They are perfect for our 4Runner.

                  I wish they had fast-release buckles instead of snaps. The short front straps limit the amount of stuff you can put in the front pocket and the length of lenses in the top.

                  The case is solid, the straps are heavy duty, and I know we'll get many years os use from these bags.

                    It's small, holds a lot, and is just incredibly constructed.

                      I gave it one less star then it deserves because of the metal spring catch to open and close the bag. I had to replace them with larger and easier to use latches.

                      I purchased this domke bag after I saw a friend of mine with one. She used it to hold two pro bodies with lenses attached face down (70-200 and another lens samesize can be packed together attached) in the bag with room to spare for flash, 2-3 lenses, extra battery, memory card case and a few other items.
                      when I received the bag I could not be more pleased. I wanted something lightweight but sturdy without rollers to carry along for portrait work, etc. I did not plan on using this bag for an excursion to the zoo, etc it would be heavy fully packed for a good walk. I have other bags for this.

                      I love this bag and it is the one I use most at the moment. I leave lenses home that wont be needed and can easily throw this bag in the front seat of the car ready for anything since the lenses of any size up to 300mm 4.0 can be attached to the body , no switching of lenses and missing a shot.

                      i can downsize the lenses for differnt type of shoots and the bag does not feel too big and bulky . It is made of very sturdy canvas and very well made. it has a belt on the back that can be used with an optional shoulder harness or if tightened can be used to sling over the handles of a rolling travel suitcase. the shoulder strap can be unattached and just the handles used. there are two very good size front pockets that hold my canon 580ex flash or this can be stored in either of the side pockets that have a velcro closure. I looked at other similiar size bags and this one is the ticket.

                      It stands open by itself, no laying on its side to get to the contents.
                      It has padded dividers that can be configured if necessary.

                      Right now I have these items packed in it. 1dmkiii with 70-200 lens atttached facing down. 85L lens and hood. 24-70 lens and hood. 580ex flash . 15mm fisheye , 1.4 tc and misc other small gadgets. it is easy to access and nothing is crammed in.

                      Love the bag, would highly recommend it to everyone especially if you travel to sports events etc and want a bag with camera and lens ready which can be easily accessed for all your pro bodies and lenses ready to go. I have had numerous bags and still keep a rolling bag for laptop and lenses for some travelling but this is the one that is packed and ready all of the time.

                        Roomy, I carry 2 full body cameras, with 4 lenses, 1 flash, filters, spare batteries, etc. Get the shoulder pad option, it will make a diff. on heavy equipment for all day carry use! Doesn't look to obvious when you carry around the city! Just carry your pepper spray with you!

                          In making a variety of pictures on my campus and in the mountain wilderness, this bag keeps the lenses and other needs close at hand. It is easy to carry and is durable.
