A Niche Within The Forrest
Several companies already make quite effective dedicated camera bags. The ideal Tom Bihn niche would be to do for small pro-summer cameras, what they did for the laptops. Camera cells for going inside existing Tom Bihn luggage. As a case in point. When traveling for short pleasure trips, I'm now in the habit of using the Super Ego with my Nikon CP5K stuffed losely in the main compartment along with my iBook. The Wide adapter is also stuffed in there in it's own pouch and SB24 + Bat packs also loose .That's too much risk IMHO. I'd realy like to see a variety of padded "component" modules - generically brick shaped -4 HD foam or neoprene padded walls. I see this alot inside tactical luggage such as used by SWAT Ops. Soemtimes I'll use wraps on my gear but they are a hassle to undo quickly. If these inner 'cells' are removeable- that would allow for customizable arrays- kinda like Tom Biihn 'Lego'
