My husband and I are expecting our first child, and I'm on the lookout for a diaper bag that could hold my SLR and maybe an extra lens, in addition to the usual baby stuff (diapers, changing pad, change of clothes) and purse stuff (wallet, keys, cellphone).
How have other parents solved the challenge of combining both needs, without carrying both a camera bag and a diaper bag? There is a reason babies have two parents, one per bag ;) Well, what about just a camera-protection to slip into the diaper-bag?
This question is a bit similar to this one, but there are a couple of extra challenges. As long as the liquids are not higher, you should be good.
Preferably, I'd need a strategy to isolate the photo stuff from the potentially messy baby stuff (nothing like spilled milk - or worse - on a 600$ lens...). Here is one from Pacsafe: pacsafe.com/www/index.php? _room=3&_action=detail&id=94 My wife have the Storksak Gigi Chocolate Diaper Bag for a year now and for the past few weeks I have added my Nikon D7000 to it when we go out to parks and outings.
I will of course use the lens bag case that came with it as an extra precaution and use the inner pocket inside the main chamber (see the fourth image on amazon).
