    Medium Cafe Bag as Camera Bag

    I've got a micro four thirds camera (Olympus OM-D E-M5) with a bunch of lenses. Like many camera owners, I have several camera bags. Most of these are large enough to carry the camera and several lenses, along with accessories. What I was looking for, was something smaller and light if I just wanted to carry the camera with one lens attached, and maybe another small lens as well. I really dislike bags that look like camera bags.

    Crumpler makes a series of camera inserts you can use with any bag. Their Haven line comes in small, medium, and large. I found the small Haven fits perfectly in a medium cafe bag:

    Haven (S)

    Voila: a small bag that doesn't scream "camera bag." The cafe bag's front and back pockets can be used for wallet, phone, etc; leaving the main pocket for the insert.

    Great to know. I'll jump in and ask before someone else does: do you happen to have any photos showing your camera bag set up?

    Here are a couple of quick shots (used my Ipad, so forgive the quality). This is the bag I use on weekends when I'm out and about anyway. Just dropping the insert in the bag with some equipment turns the cafe bag into a light camera bag, with enough padding for my equipment.
