Read also The Canon Crumpler 6 Million Dollar Home
A few days ago after returning from an assignment in the Philippines, I received this wonderful gift from a good friend. I think the size and the bee-to-honey colour made my wife lit up with enthusiasm as she started to have ideas what she could do with it. But putting her breakfast in The Five Million Dollar Home seems so wrong! Haha. This bag doesn’t work for my favourite body and lens combo—5D MkII with Grip and 70-200mm f/2.8 (don’t think an f/4 would fit either). It’s perfect for photographers who are light travelers with a prime and wide lens. By light, I mean a body without the battery grip would just make this bag an ideal companion. This is my first Crumpler bag and the smallest addition to the family of bags compared to the Lowepro Nova 5, Lowepro Mini Trekker and about 1/4 the capacity of the Lowepro Rolling CompuTrekker Plus AW.
So last week I took my camera along to The Mall Gadong because my wife wanted to shop with her sister, I checked out AV Electronics for the first time, loved the BOSE Around-ear Headsets very much and they had a good selection of Crumpler bags too (AV does not stock the Canon EOS Crumpler). Neither the Macs nor the Crumpler bags appealed to me as much as the headphones—think I know what’s on my shopping list next (my birthday is long over so I cannot pull that birthday-coming-up routine!) :) So with a little RED inspiration, I took this picture outside of the Bose store.
