    Photography question: Olympus E420 users?

    OK, I know this thread makes next to no sense in the 29er forum, but I bought a camera (E420) based on a thread here.

    SO, E420 users, what are you using for a bag? I have the pancake lense and I bought a Loweprowe Mini, but its still about two sizes too big. It makes having such a small camera kind of dumb. Is there anything smaller? Even a hard case..... can't find anything anywhere. Thanks!

    PS If anyone can recommend a good photog forum it would be much appreciated.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    I use a sling pack. Go here: http://www.tamrac.com/frame_velocity.htm
    I have a DSLR with a 18-55 Zoom. I took all the guts out of it, so I can also put my 55-300 zoom on my camera and carry it around.
    The sling pack makes getting to the camera super easy. The only down side is that it will slip around to the side or front some. I just flip it back out of the way. I was thinking of adding another quick detach strap to it to keep it from moving around.

    Your camera is not 29" wheel compatible.

    LowePro Trail 1

    I shot an E420 last year and carried it with me quite a bit. If I didn't have it stuffed in my Wingnut or my Osprey 22, I use the Lowe Pro Trail 1.

    Nice camera. I need to bring mine with me more. I tend to bring the point and shoot.

    I used an E420 w/ the 25mm before switching to the GF1 +20mm. I always just tossed my in a ziplock bag then into my camelbak or jersey pocket.
