sorry i didn't get to put this together last week, but here you have a video of the same equipment in the large cafe bag.

you won't have this problem with the canon xs body and 18-55mm and 55-250mm lenses you mentioned. you didn't mention a flash, but even with canon's 580ex 2 - these other components should fit nicely.
i hope this helps. let me know if you have any questions.
Agreed, this looks perfect for our needs. Thanks again!
