If you'd hope to be carrying a couple of spare memory cards, maybe a battery, and some sandwiches which the crusts cut off along with your camera, then this really isn't the case for you. If however you enjoy travelling light and aren't all that bothered about carting additional accessories about separately, then this product fits the bill perfectly.
