Billingham Bags

I know there are Billingham fans here on the forum and thought I would point out that Camera King have some in their clearance section just now.

Re: Billingham Bags

Still expensive though!
I paid 30 for my Hadley when Dixons closed down in central Cardiff in 2004. Wish I'd bought a couple at that price.

Re: Billingham Bags

My Billingham 335 that I purchased on 18/5/91 for 106.49 (including a 5 discount and 15.86 VAT) from MR CAD in Croydon is still looking good after nearly 30 years. Now retailing at 3 times the price. The inserts never seemed all that good to me as they are not well padded but the bag itself does provide plenty of protection. It was fine for my OM Series kit but much too large for my MFT stuff. However as the latter is accumulating it might be time to revisit the 335. The only downside is that it looks too much like a camera bag when visiting tourist spots.
