Had this for 4 weeks now, holds my Canon 5D with 50mm Zeiss lens, 70-200 f2.8L with hood reversed on lens, and 17-40mm with a little room to spare, so lens choices could be different. Also room in front for cards and batteries, and the extra straps for carrying a tripod seem to work, but my tripods are massive so I don't do that with them much.

All around very pleased with the bag and price point. You get what you pay for!

Originally ordered a much larger Crumpler, just wasn't for me. Glad when this arrived, it is just the right size for walking around, can carry it everywhere and not worry about being conspicuous, if I don't want to.

For a great review on the 6 million dollar bag, search for DigitalRevTV and they have a really snarky but high stakes review of the bag and a few similar competitors. 6 million fares very well, especially in the egg test :-)

I have a Canon 7D with Grip and a Sunsniper strap. I compared this bag to the Thinktank Retrospective. The Retro way way too tight. This bag is also tight and a little hard to get camera in and out quickly. One pro over Retro bag is that it has locking straps on the front versus velcro. I was looking for this feature since I will be traveling in Europe this summer. Still not sold on the bag and it may go back.

Comments about 6 Million Dollar Home Bag (Black/Black):

This is good shoulder bag. It is reasonably tight for gear and the dividers are stiff. The shoulder pad is really comfortable and the silent entry is nice. My k-5 with 55-300mm lens fits with a little room for a flash and/or another lens. Don't plan on carrying all your gear in this bag, just enough to walk around with.

      Comments about 6 Million Dollar Home Bag (Black/Black):

      I love most things about the bag. The dividers are handy, well padded bag and black external/red internal colors are good looking. My one complaint is the bag doesn't come with the instructions on how to use the external straps. I suspected that is is for the tripod holder. I went to the official Crumpler website looking around for pictures. It was for a small tripod, but the design wasn't all that great. I removed the straps.

        Comments about 6 Million Dollar Home Bag (Black/Black):

        I use this bag to carry all my photo gear: a DSLR with a wide-angle zoom attached, a telephoto zoom and all the cables, with ample room left for a flash. The removable tripod straps are long enough for a full-size tripod, but since the bag is small, a folded tripod is longer that the width of the bag.

        It is very well made and provides good protection for the gear. There are a lot of rigid separators which can be attached by velcro anywhere in the bag, so there is a lot of flexibility as to how the space is used; however the separators are not themselves padded. Because of the removable shoulder strap cushion, the bag is very comfortable to carry.

        Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase.

          Comments about 6 Million Dollar Home Bag (Black/Black):

          Love this camera. I have been looking for the perfect camera bag to tote my gear and I've finally found it. The quality is excellent. The interior can be customized to suit your own arsenal. Love the bright colored interior so it's easy to see what's inside.

          I can fit my canon 5d mk3 with 50mm lens attached, along with a 70-200mm lens with room for another mid-sized lens. There's also room for extras, like memory cards, cables, batteries, charger, etc. Also love the top handle so you're not limited to carrying it via the shoulder strap. Even with all that gear, it still feels lightweight and comfortable. Another big plus is the ability to strap a tripod to the top.

          All in all, it is a very well designed and durable bag with enough room to fit all your essentials.

            I've been a Domke and Billingham user, but for my my micro-43 system what I had didn't quite work. When I found the Crumpler 6 Million Dollar Home, especially at [$], I had to give it a shot. Fits my kit great, well built bag. Only complaint is the dividers are a bit stiff. I highly recommend this bag, especially at the price I paid!

              Comments about 6 Million Dollar Home Bag (Black/Black):

              I ordered one with black color, it looks nice for a camera bag and seems to have good protection. But the dividers are not as plush as those I have used with other brands. In terms of functionality and protection, it might not be a problem. Overall, the construction of the bag is great. My only complaint is the dividers that they give you to customize the interior are a little stiff.

              Dimension wise, it fits very well for my SONY A7 Mk2 with 24-70 f4 attached and HVLF60M. I put the camera facing down in the middle compartment and the flash light in its case on the side. The bag is just deep enough for both of them. And I still have one compartment left for other small items.

                    This bag is spacious and versatile. I use it for my medium format film kit (one body with prism finder, two backs, film winder, light meter), but it can be easily configurable for a full frame DSLR with two or three lenses. It's comfortable to carry, and it does not scream camera bag. The build quality is what you would expect from Crumpler.

                      I needed camera bug that will have space for DSLR + two lenses and flash.
                      Didn't want something bulky. This bug looks very nice lake a casual bug and is comfortable.
                      I like this bug a lot. The dividers are not padded like the other bugs I have from Tamrac. But having thin dividers is space saving.

                        Comments about 6 Million Dollar Home Bag (Black/Black):

                        After reading a lot of reviews I bought the Crumpler Six Million Dollar Home in black (the version with a red interior). One reason to choose this bag is that it does not scream "camera bag!" while walking around. Price influenced me, too. When the bag went on sale for $ it was a much easier choice for me! So I bought a larger bag for travel and the 6MDH for use closer to home. Some reviewers complain the padded inserts are too stiff. They are very rigid but moveable and offer great protection to gear. If I wanted to I could replace some of the dividers with softer ones from an older bag. But the thinner dividers offer protection and versatility in configuring the MDH6. The bag easily accommodates a Nikon D7100, Tokina 11-16mm, Nikon 18-200mm lens, Nikon SB-700 flash, filters, and extra batteries. The D7100 rests in the bag with the Tokina attached. I could fit a third lens, such as a 35mm, in the main compartment and a tripod with the exterior straps. This bag is a good size for the kit I have. The Crumpler bag looks good, is made with quality materials and seems very durable.

                          After two long trips to Asia wth a Lowepro Exchange Messenger (with Olympus PEN E-P2 + 2 lenses), I got this as a replacement. The compact Lowepro stood up well to even tropical monsoon rain, but was too tight when I decided to carry a Pentx K-5 plus a Ricoh GR D IV. This Crumpler is very well made indeed, a cut above Lowepro in interior and exterior materials. To be fair though, Lowepros are very tough and I still use at least a half-dozen of them. The main difference I see is, Crumpler's interior inserts and dividers are much stiffer than Lowepro's, which is good if you think your gear will take a bashing. So when I travel again, I'll be reaching for this bag--less to worry when your gear is well protected. Size-wise, it'll fit one APS-C DSLR body (have not tried with grip) plus two short zoom lenses and a Metz 50/52 flash.

                            I did quite a bit of research before buying this bag and it paid off. I have plenty of room for dslr, 2 lenses, charger, flash, etc. And I can strap on a light tripod. It is quiet to open and close. The way the top closes helps to keep out rain, important where I live. I got a great deal on the price too.

                            I bought this for a vacation to New York City. Despite it's small size, the bag held a prosumer body, two fast zoom lenses, and a flash with ease. The bag isn't perfect, though. I'd prefer a better seal on the main flap, or some sort of integrated weather cover. It snowed on my and I was constantly worried my gear might get wet in the bag. Also, the tripod straps aren't well thought out.

                            Great bag, more suitable for mirrorless cameras which I have so it worked out great. Access to gear can take some getting use to but definitely would recommend

                              It's compact, well-maded, well-padded, spacious, and very appropriate for all photography purpose and all DSLR gears.
