my velocity 5 was being called a purse far too often. a clear sign you need to find a domke. that and i can't fit another lens in the velocity 5.
this bag has very little padding. it is made of heavy canvas. the only padding is on the 3inch width sides and bottom. no padding on the front and back. it does come with one domke lens insert. it's capable of swallowing my sigma snuggly. excellent. the scarce amount of padding gives the bag a very very slim profile. if you're used to having a million padded velcro dividers like a tamrac or lowepro bag, you're in for a shock with this bag. it has practically none. it's domke's way of forcing you to carry less? with this bag, you tend to pack items in small nylon bags, and tossing them into the bottom. i did scavenge one velcro divider from a different bag to hold my slr upright.
like any other camera bag, it won't be perfect for every situation or everyone. but it's perfect for me when i'm running around town.
things you should know:
1) shoulder strap is NOT removeable
2) comes with a domke bag tag
3) the top flap of the bag has a steel or plastic insert to retain the bags briefcase shape when closed.
4) the clasp for the bag is hard to operate, but very strong.Read more ›
The inside of the bag does not have the Waxwear finish so you don't have to worry about your equipment there however all of the pockets do have the wax and it can indeed rub off on whatever you place there.
I returned this bag and got a standard canvas one of the same model and am much happier with that.
If you like bags with two inches of padding and a load of dividers you're looking at the wrong brand. Domke bags are for use...not for storage or heavy duty protection. By keeping the padding to a minimum, Domke keeps its bags small relative to their carrying capacity. This approach also cuts down on weight, which you'll appreciate at the end of the shooting day.
The F-803 comes with a nicely padded interior divider that, depending upon placement, will provide either 2 or 3 spaces in the main compartment. There are also two good-sized front expansion pockets and a "magazine" pocket on the rear. The front flap has two zippered compartments which I find pretty much useless as even a filter is a tight fit.
The flap closure is very secure. So secure that you really need two hands to open it....which can be a nuisance. The usual Gripper strap is provided but, on this model, it's not removable and without swivels. I prefer my bags to have removable straps with swivels, but that's really a matter of personal preference.
I can easily fit either my Nikon D80 or D300 and two or three lenses in the main compartment with a flash and some accessories in the front pockets.
After two years of fairly hard use, mine is still in good condition. I've actually removed the divider and tossed the canvas shell in with the laundry a few times. The canvas has softened over time and the bag now kind of "molds" itself to my side making it very comfortable to carry.
Something that you might want to consider is that, being canvas, this bag isn't even a little bit waterproof.Read more ›
I ordered the optional one-compartment 3 x 6 x 8" insert, and my Nikon D80 SLR with lens attached rides on its back in the insert. The zoom lens is rather large -- 4" from camera body to filter when fully retracted.
The optional insert made a big difference in my enjoyment of the bag. It's easier to slip the camera in and out, and the camera receives extra protection without the bag becoming too bulky. Also, for some reason, the bag now stands up on its own. Before, it tended to need to be propped up against something.
I stash a flash in the 3 x 4 x 8" insert that came with the bag, but it would be fine for a couple of lenses if you don't mind stacking items. The flash, which is 3-1/2 x 2 x 6-1/2" inches, also fits in one of the front pockets but just barely. I personally wouldn't carry the flash in the front pocket because I prefer the more spacious feel, ease of access and extra protection of the insert, but it's doable.
The two inserts fit well within the bag, but perhaps not perfectly. Together, they might be about 1/2" too long. Perhaps it's by design, but they "fold" just a little. It's not bothersome. They have kind of molded themselves to the shape of the equipment. Domke's inserts are clever, and I appreciate the way you can remove them with contents intact and can remove the individual foam paddings from whatever sides you want.Read more ›
