Has anyone worked out how to pack the camera and a few lenses into the freebee bag yet?

I've had a couple of goes and failed!

So it looks like the body and battery pack will go in the top section, end on, without a lens. I can only get one lens, flash and charger into the bag - I certainly can't get a decent selection of lenses in!

Haven't tried mine but Damian McGillicuddy was using his so he must have worked it out. I really don't think I need such a posh bag so it's likely to go up for sale to a good home.

Carrying expensive camera kit in anything remotely looking like a camera bag just adds to the possibility of theft. Best to use a tatty old bag with a padded sleeve to attenuate any shock.

Its a waste of space IMHO. Too heavy, how to put a camera in it is a mystery, only good point is that it smells delicious.............

Probably explains why they were giving them away.

If you look on the Gillis website there are demonstration videos showing how to pack the various bags.

Think this Show 'offer' rather supports the idea, that there is no such thing as a free lunch.:)
