    I'm looking for something to carry my X10 in. Not sure whether to go for a small shoulder bag (which is what it's in now, as we had one in the house), or a pouch that I can put into other bags, depending what I am doing. I am leaning towards the pouch option, as the small bag does not have much room for other items, such as glasses, purse, keys, etc.

    What are others using?

    Mine lives snugly in a Leica 14522 leather case originally designed to hold an M6 and 50mm Elmar-M. You can find them occasionally on eBay. Perfect fit and very practical.

    My X100 lives in a National Geographic 1212, which I carry on my belt (it has a shoulder strap too). Fits the camera snugly, with spare card and battery in the outer pocket.

    Diane,

    Perhaps you might fancy something from ONA
    http://www.onabags.com/store.html

    I don't own any of their bags (already have too many ugly lowepros) but I have/love their camera straps.

    Interesting! My X10 rides in a National Geographic 1152 belt pack; also a snug fit. I often carry my X100 in a sling pack, also from NG (#4567); separate compartments for camera and wide-angle attachment/hood, plus small pockets for batteries, SD cards, etc. Geeky-looking but functional....

    Thanks. I rather like the look of the Nat Geo one, with the option of using the strap or not. That seems to fit the requirements. And they are exhibiting at Focus, so will give them a try.

    My better half would refuse to let me go out with that :)

    I quite like that sling pack, too! I could transfer all my other everyday 'stuff' into that as well as taking the camera and spare batteries, etc. Will definitely be looking for their stand at Focus on Imaging. I would prefer to hold and try them, rather than order online and it not be right. I have bought many camera bags that never really seem to fit my requirements!

    I'm a big fan of Billingham. The Hadley Digital would hold your camera plus other small items easily.

    The Billingham bags are a bit more than I wanted to pay, although they are very nice.

    Mine is not thrilled with it, but she grins and bears it. I think she's glad I don't have any interest in expensive bags!

    Interesting! I have an old Canon G10 stored in a 5693; didn't think to try that one on for size with the X10. Thanks for the tip.

    EDIT: Upon further review, I find that my Canon resides in a 5692; definitely one size too small for the X10. Oh, well....no recycle this time.

    That's funny; the 5693 was a recycle for me, dug from the back of the closet where it was housing my old Canon A630.

    Now that the weather is cold I don't even use a bag; I just slide my X10 into a jacket pocket and go. It helps to have a wrist strap rather than the bulkier neck straps (I have a Gordy wrist strap, fwiw). But when it's warm I tote the X10 around in an old Crumpler bag (a model no longer in production, sorry to say). It's a nice bag but looks a bit too much like a camera bag. I keep looking for something less conspicuous.

    The Billinghams are expensive but once I got one I quit buying bags.
    So cheaper in the long run.

    Tdp, I have a Hadley Small that holds all my m43 gear, and my X100 too at a pinch. I'm thinking about a Hadley Digital for my E-M5 with a couple of lenses. Do you know if that would work?

    Depends on the lenses. Which are you planning on carrying?
