I've been looking for a bag to hold my iPad Mini and my Canon EOS M with extra lens along with batteries, recharge cables, etc.
Basically, something small that won't weigh me down.
I am a professional photographer who normally carries a couple of DSLRs and multiple lenses, but I am looking to downsize when I am about out and about.
I really like the Small Cafe Bag and it will fulfill my needs but I don't like the color options. I want it in black.
So I started looking at the Medium Cafe Bag, which comes in black, and I'm wondering if I should buy that, even though it exceeds my needs at the moment, on the basis that I might end up using it to store more things.
I already have a bunch of camera bags in all sizes, but they are all designed for my DSLRs, so I'm looking much slimmer and smaller to accommodate the Canon mirrorless camera.
If I go with the SCB, then I would have to go with the olive/wasabi, but I really don't like that color, even though it's better than the other ones available.
If I go with the MCB, I would go with the black, but then I would be walking around with a bag that may be too large for my needs.
My goal is to downsize everything, so I can go about my daily business with the basic necessities. I already have the bags for the larger cameras or laptop.
So my questions are:
Why doesn't Tom Bihn offer the SCB in black, which is one of the most basic colors?
Would the MCB be too large for me or would I end up being glad I have the extra space to store whatever else i need to store (which will bring me back to the original issue in that i carry too much crap that weighs me down)?
I really like the Tom Bihn bags and I like the company from what I've seen (although that jigsaw puzzle Captcha requirement was a little overkill), but I am considering buying a small bag in black from another company.
I found this question from three years ago from a person who is basically looking for the same thing I'm looking for now, so I'm not alone in wanting something small, slim and discrete, which is why black is the best option.
