I was very impressed on the quality of this bag!
Lily Ann Plumb
Well I'd suggest a Nova 1 bag instead, as this will be too much for your uses.
Shane O. Laake
This bag is big enough for a small SLR or an SLR-like point-n-shoot.

I can't comment on the other Nova bags, but the Nova 3 has a very rugged strap attachment. It's a metal D-ring and a metal clasp. Zoom in on the photo and you can see it. Overall, this bag is very well constructed and has lots of adjustable internal dividers to customize it for your equipment. It may be larger than you need for a small camera, but I think it's just the right size for my DSLR (Pentax K10D) plus battery charger, cables, and a short telephoto. There is still room for one or two additional lenses or an external flash. Overall, a good buy.

Looking for a small bag for your SLR? Well I'd suggest a Nova 1 bag instead, as this will be too much for your uses.

Looking for a large bag for two or more SLRs? Well this bag is too small.

If you however have a SLR, 2-3 lenses and a flash, it's just right. I carry my Nikon D70s (with a battery grip attached), 18-70, 70-300VR, and 50mm lenses as well as a SB600 flash in this bag. Any of the three lenses can be attached, and the other two can go along for the ride. The flash cannot fit attached to the camera, but it fits when you disconnect it. I even can throw in the AC adapter, extra batteries, extra compact flash cards, and a memory reader. All of this fits with the top securely zipped shut. The whole setup is a rather large and heavy affair, but it works well as a carry on. It seals well, so it's very weatherproof as is, but there is a raincoat thats stowed in the bottom that covers it even better (I don't think I want to be in a rainstorm that necessitates that). The one thing that can be an issue is that this bag is too much if you're just taking a camera and one lens. I still have a Nova 1, which serves this function well, and the dividers that came with the Nova 1 came in handy, as this bags allotment was sufficient for most uses, but not mine.

Don't let the 4 star rating fool you. This is a really well-constructed camera bag with lots of room for storage, but may be too much for the amateur photographer that may not be carrying multiple lens and several catridges of 35 mmm film. I bought this for my wife to hold her Canon EOS XT and it does a dandy job of it but is really too bulky for traveling. It went with us to Hawaii but was too difficult to carry around when sightseeing and taking pictures (not to mention having it as a carry-on when flying). In it I was carry an extra battery, battery charger, several extra flash cards, and that's about it. I ended up getting a Lowepro Topload Zoom1 Camera Bag after this bag and it has been fantastic for my needs. It was much easier to travel with and enough room to carry what I needed.

Initially I was looking for a separate bag for my Nikon D40 and my Panasonic SDR-H18 video cam. I saw a Nova 2AW at the store and I thought it was good enough for both cameras to fit in. But then I have another zoom lens that I need to carry with me. The Nova 3AW is just perfect for my gears. I can fit those three with one more room to spare for another lens. It was really designed for bigger DSLR but I was able to secure the D40 just fine with the included dividers. It's got plenty of pockets too for extra batteries, chargers and cleaning accessories. There's also a room for my Elph. The two side pockets are also handy for my cellphone and pocket books or map. There's also a pocket in the back for other stuff. So basically, here's what I was able to fit in the bag:

1 Nikon D40 w/ 55mm attached
1 compact video camera
1 200mm lens
1 digital compact camera
3 chargers and cables
3 spare batteries for each camera

The bag is also designed to be used as a waist belt bag but I thought it's a little big for this purpose. I also like the plastic lock in the front because I can secure the bag without closing the zipper for the cap-like cover. Overall, I am very satisfied with this bag and I highly recommend it to someone wanting to use it for their DSLR and video camera.

Space for the camera, manual, extra batteries and all cords you need to download photos off the camera. This bag is big enough for a small SLR or an SLR-like point-n-shoot. It seems to be well made and has a nice feature that allows you to protect the bag with a waterproof cover that stores inside one of the pockets. Pretty cool. It also has a nice loop on the back of it that would allow you to put it on your belt. I've used it in combination with the shoulder strap, and the combo makes the bag very secure and comfortable to wear, even if you have to jog a bit to get to the best location for a shot.

I bought this camera bag to hold my Canon SX10 IS & accessories. I find the bag to be too large. I bought the bag based on the reviews, but should have been more careful about 2 things:

1) Check the product dimensions. This bag is pretty bulky in my opinion. I wanted to carry the camera and a change of batteries. If you are looking to hold all of your accessories also, this will be a good fit for you.
2) Check the return policy of the shipper. I bought this from seller DBRoth and it turns out they charge a 10% restocking fee on returns, so I'll be keeping this bag instead of finding a smaller bag from them.

The good thing about this bag is that it is well padded and will protect the camera. There is also more than ample room (I don't have an extra flash or extra lenses though). It seems to be well constructed.

I just don't like the boxy shape and size of the bag. It seems like overkill for me. I use the camera to shoot wildlife and I'd prefer something smaller that would fit only the camera and 4 spare batteries. This one is kind of bulky to carry in the woods. It would be ideal for airport travel.

Anyways, depending on your use, this could be for you. It wasn't right for me, but I might as well keep it rather than pay the restocking fee. Will be looking for a smaller bag from a different seller.
