What camera bag would you recommend to carry an iPad and DSLR with a couple of lenses ???

The Crumpler Six Million Dollar Home is my favorite shoulder bag, it's like a 5 Mill for chunkier pro gear and as such I like to lug a big dslr with a prime lens, standard or wide zoom attached, a 70-200 f2.8 alongside, and maybe a speedlight , just in case... It's also a good size for a more comprehensive prosumer kit or...

I get all the tricky photo and video related customer service questions at Crumpler HQ... Here's a recent corker!
Q: "What camera bag would you recommend to carry an iPad and DSLR with a couple of lenses ???"
"Hi B - I was able to configure a 6 Million Dollar Home to suit that setup.

Rip out all the dividers, fold the 4 velcros back on the 2 large middle pieces, make a box shape from the middle 4 pieces, add the 2 side pieces to the rear outer edges of the box.
Insert into Home and unfold the folded back velcro at the front to anchor the insert. (Easier to insert this way)
The gear should also help hold everthing in place...

Should be good for D300 with or without grip, attached standard lens and 2 extra lenses or lens and speedlight - and an iPad!

Use a Crumpler Fug on the iPad for more protection.

If you have bags for your lenses you can use any of our Laptop Shoulder Bags for a similar, if somewhat less organized setup.
E.G. iPad in Fug in front pocket, camera and lens in laptop slot, lens in bag/s in cargo pocket.
Skivvies for just the camera and lens - iPad in Fug in front pocket.
Embarrassments are less padded in the cargo area than the others which can be advantageous or not depending on your needs... Cheers, BBB"

Apologies for the shockenhausen camera phone pix :-P !!!

I know this is an old post, but I just wanted to say that this idea is great and I am using your configuration for my Canon 550D and iPad.
