    Synapse with Photo Insert-Here is 1 way!

    OK so I have been waiting and going crazy for the Photo Insert and have taken matters in to my own hands for myself.
    The last time I tried this,well lets just say I am leaving brand names out of it.Name:  SynapsePhotoInsert01.jpg

    Here is the whole load and a full size flash inside.
    None of these shots have any gear in the other side pocket or the huge bottom pocket.
    Also I could still get an iPad or Macbook Air in the main compartment behind or in front of the insert or both!

    I could still get my Canon 17-55 F2.8 in there too but I was using it to take these shots on my 7D which would also go in if needed.

    Notice also that the insert with gear only fills the main compartment to about 1/2 way to the top and a lot more can still go in.

    Admittedly this is getting heavy and a little unwieldy and it also wants to fall forward at times depending on what is loaded where but overall I am satisfied that I can start to use the Synapse now as a "Stealth" Camera bag.

    I also think I read that the Bihn Insert will not work in the Synapse?
    If not then this may be a viable solution down the road too.

    OK
    One more for the road with just 3 lenses in the insert to get an idea of its size.
    The lens' are pretty good sized chunks of glass too.
    None of the lenses has the Hood mounted which does make them wider but there is plenty of room for the hoods in the bag still.Name:  IMG_3575.jpg

    Too many MountainSmith product tags to suggest you are leaving brand names out of this :-) I like what you have done here, very good use of space!

    "Thanks for posting your pictures! Planning to go to Europe in the Spring and I was wondering if my Nikon D5100 with two other lenses would fit in the Synapse in one of these "pouch" bags.
