dPS: Now with 1 MILLION Subscribers [CAMERA BAG GIVEAWAY] - Digital Photography School

dPS: Now with 1 MILLION Subscribers [CAMERA BAG GIVEAWAY]

UPDATE: this competition is now over and the winners (and the bags they’ve won) are:

#1 – April B. – Montgomery Street Courier
#2 – Walt Winkowski – Montgomery Backpack
#3 – Rebecca Haines – Montgomery Street Kit Bag
#4 – Matthew Crabtree – Montgomery Street Courier Bag

Note: we’re giving away some great photography bags below. Read on to find out how to win.

In April 2006 dPS launched as a site where I started to collate the things I’d been learning about digital photography.

As ‘that guy’ who always got asked to photograph his friends weddings, kids parties, conferences and other events I was also the guy that friends came to to ask for advice about how to use cameras better. So instead of telling friends the same tips over and over again I decided to write them down in a blog.

At the time of launching dPS I wasn’t sure what the future had in store for the site. I was passionate about the topic but dPS had no posts and no readers.

Fast forward six and a half years and I can hardly believe some days that dPS has grown into what it has become. Not only is it now a business that feeds my family and employs a team of people to run it – this week we passed a milestone – 1 million subscribers!

Who would have thought!?

Note: That figure is made up of people who subscribe either to our weekly newsletter or our RSS feed (if you’re not subscribed yet you can learn about the options here).

My Heartfelt Thanks

What does one say or do at a time like this?

I’ve been wondering what to say for a month or so now (as the milestone has approached) and apart from pinching myself I’m not really sure what to do except to say thank you because the growth of dPS has been something that is more to do with others than myself.

Firstly thanks to our team. Working behind the scenes here at dPS are a number of dedicated core team members who look after customer service, community management, the production and marketing of our eBooks, the selling of ads. They help to make the site more useful and sustainable.

Secondly thanks to our writers – both those who create our daily tutorials (we’ve published almost 3500 since 2006) and to pure eBook authors (we have 11 now).

Thirdly thanks to our volunteer team. Much of what happens here at dPS is done by volunteers. Writers and forum moderators – without whom the site could not run.

Lastly thank to our readers and community – you. Without you visiting, subscribing, reading, sharing, commenting and interacting with one another we’d not be what we’ve become today. I’m grateful to you for your continued support and look forward to continuing to grow dPS together.

Win 1 of 4 Camera Bags from Acme Made

To celebrate our million subscriber milestone we asked one of our sponsors – Acme Made – if they would like to give a few of their camera bags away. They said yes – in fact they’ve given us 4 to give away from their Montgomery Street Collection!

These bags are stylish, versatile, and protective. The Montgomery Street Collection is made up of a Case, Kit Bag, Courier and Backpack. Each provides a unique solution to hold not just a camera, but other digital devices and essential accessories. The all-new FlexFold System provides a quick and easy way to collapse or expand the internal space for added versatility.

How to Win
Check out the Montgomery Street Collection and let us know in comments below which bag you like the most and why.

Four of you will be picked at random and will win the bag you like most!

This competition is open to our global audience – we’ll make sure the bag you win gets to you wherever you are! Just keep it to one entry per person please.

The winners will be chosen randomly in 8 days time (at Midday on November 23nd – Melbourne Australia time).

    I like the backpack the best. Great way to hold camera, iPad, and other essentials.

  • http://oylerphotography.com Paul Oyler

    Congrats on one million! And thank you for providing such a great resource.

    I believe I would like the backpack the most for the simple reason that shoulder or sling type bags no longer agree with my back.

  • Trey McNabb

    Congrats on 1 Million! I love being part of this site.

    I really like the Montgomery Street Backpack – it’s got enough room for my basic gear, plus the added bonus of the extra pocket for the laptop. I’ve always been a large fan of the backpack vs. other carrier styles.

    I really like the side pocket access for the camera with this series, so the quick access is a plus.

    Thanks!

  • http://dgitalphotography.com Daniel

    Congrats!! Wow 6 years seems so long.

    I would love the Montgomery Street Courier, it looks nice and sleek on the outside and enough room to fit my camera with some extra crap I am always carrying around.

  • Ray

    Backpack! Quite simply a perfect system! Take almost all the gear you need in one bag! Plus I like the way it looks!

  • http://www.facebook.com/Shaggysuite Jennifer

    I really like the second largest bag! It would fit EVERYthing more comfortably and securely than what I have now. Wish me luck!

  • http://larakimbrellphotography.com Physicschick

    I love the street Courier bag because it can carry my camera, ipad, and enough personal stuff that I would take my camera with me more often and take more pictures.

  • http://www.sweetsilverphoto.com Kelly

    I love the Montgomery Street Courier bag in gray! It’s very trendy looking for a camera bag.

  • María Barreto

    First of all, congratulaciones DPS well done!!!! ???? I like the kit case the best because it renders easy acces to my DSLR, speciAlly when I’m out there doing street photography. Great design!!!

  • http://www.nathanfrankephotography.com Nathan Franke

    The kit bag would be perfect for my wife’s Nikon J1. It’s small enough not to add clutter to our already cluttered home, but big enough to store the camera and all its accessories in one place. Plus, it looks nice enough that she might go outside with it, thus using it for its intended purpose. My wife deserves something nice for her camera–she makes some good photographs with it.

  • Terri DeBonee

    Congrats on reaching 1 million subscribers! I am new to the site and to digital photography. Due to having back surgery I started taking more and more pictures and now that I’m getting out more I would love to get the Montgomery Street Backpack! It looks like a great backpack.

    Thanks!

    The Montgomery Street Backpack would best suit me as my kit is quite large and heavy and I do a lot of travel photography. The non-camera bag styling also makes it very appealing as it would prove less attractive to would be thieves. Thanks to Darren for this site, it has profoundly enhanced my photographic ability over the few years I have been following it.

    The Street Courier looks great and it would have to be green since I photograph mostly nature. As a retired mail carrier I'm used to wearing a bag like that and I've found my old, squarer, bag cumbersome. I enjoy the site and hope to do some assignments one day.

  • Reid

    November 20, 2012 08:13 am

    Although I do like the idea of the Street Courier, I think I would have to go with the Street Backpack. I believe it would offer more comfort if I needed something all day. Congrats on the one million subscribers. I'm so glad I found this site a few years ago. I've learned a lot here.

  • tiffany

    November 20, 2012 06:57 am

    Love your blog! Keep up the great work! I really like the Montgomery Street Courier bag. It looks like just the right size for my DSLR and a few extras as well. I really like the layout of this bag!

  • Eveline

    November 20, 2012 06:19 am

    I would definitely choose the backpack. I like that you can put a small tripod in the backpack. As well, as a fine arts photographer, I like being prepared with a few items when I go for a photo walk. This backpack covers those needs. It's also sleek and modern.

  • Niah

    November 20, 2012 06:01 am

    I LOVE the "Mongomery Street Courier" because I think it is a little easier to access than the backpack. They all are beautiful, and I will be ordering one if I don't win one here!!

    Thanks for the best email I receive each week. Here's to the next million mark!!

  • Hajira Khan

    November 20, 2012 05:35 am

    Hey DPS! Congratulations on reaching the million milestone :D
    I would love it so very much if I got the Montgomery Street Kit Bag. It would be great for photowalks on the mountains since it's compact and can fit in just what I would essentially need to carry around. It would be great to have one! Fingers crossed :D
    Cheers!

    November 20, 2012 04:39 am

    well done guys!
    i like the montgomery street backpack. the reason is that being a student, i carry books, notes and this kind of stuff and also because i ride a motorcycle, so it is more comfortable wearing a bag in your back!

  • Isaac

    November 20, 2012 03:51 am

    Congratulations on this achievement Darren and dPS team!!!

    My choice is the Montgomery Street Backpack, I think it's the one that better fits my needs as of now.

    Thank you, and wish you more success to come!

  • Sudhakar P

    November 20, 2012 02:06 am

    Congrats for the milestone achievement. dPS is in my bookmark till the time I learnt the very basic of photography - Aperture, Shutter, ISO & Exposure. Lets all make dPS the best knowledge sharing platform and keep a benchmark for other fields.

    On Montgomery Street designer collection, its the texture of the bag which attracted me on my first sight of the published picture. Yes, it remained me of having this texture captured as a background of a macro shot of jewel.

    I really liked the design of all four variants. But I would like to select Montgomery Street Courier as my choice, as the strap could be worn along with my huge backpack. It would be the stylish option for the travel freak like me.

  • Lara

    November 20, 2012 01:39 am

    Congrats on 1 million :D I have been an avid reader since 2010, and DPS has been a lifesaver!! So I am very glad that you made the leap of faith and that it has worked out so well.

    I would definitely choose the Montgomery Street Courier! It looks like the perfect size for me and I have always preferred an over the shoulder bag. I have been bag shopping for the last year and a half and haven't found anything that looks half as good as this and would suit all of my needs. With three extra lenses, my bag is feeling very VERY cramped and I have even gotten to the point of looking at big handbags and wondering if I can adjust them to be camera-friendly. This would solve all of my problems and leave me free to take photos feeling that my camera is secure (and feeling stylish to boot!)

    I'd like to get the `Montgomery Street Courier` bag, because it`d be the perfect thing for an outdoor photoshoot :)

  • Michael

    November 20, 2012 12:44 am

    I like the The Montgomery Street Backpack. I think this is a great versatile bag that would allow me to traverse around town while carrying the necessary equipment, iPad or small laptop, and even bottle of water and a snack. I tend to either walk or bike around town when I visit and photograph the city and this bag would be perfect. Sleek and non obtrusively large, I could see carrying it all day or night while visiting different shooting locations around town. I also like the convenience of being able to access gear from the side panel.

  • Maggie

    November 20, 2012 12:38 am

    Definitely the Montgomery Street Courier. It would be perfect for carrying the camera and the kids diaper bag items. Great giveaway! I hope I win!!!

    Hi, Montgomery Street Courier. Love the size, the different compartments are perfect. The colour is very 'low key" and the side entry is a major bonus. Congrats on hitting the 1 millionth mark!...

  • Chris Johnston

    November 19, 2012 07:55 pm

    Congratulations, 1m people cant' be wrong!
    I like the Montgomery Street Courier, smaller than a backpack and having a bag on my side rather than my back feels more secure. I like the quick access to the camera, no more fumbling around trying to get the camera out quickly before the shot I want disappears..

  • Govindarajan

    November 19, 2012 07:17 pm

    Love the Montgomery street backpack. Looks really snug and handy for street photography - grab and shoot. Also really comfy to fit in some extra necessities.

  • Amol Kapse

    November 19, 2012 05:26 pm

    Congratulations dPS!
    i would prefer Montgomery Street Kit Bag. Hope I win the same.
    I am a beginner photographer with the Nikon Coolpix P510 and always go for trekking, so it will be hard to carry backpack as I will always loaded with trekking sack.- thats why i think the Montgomery Street Kit Bag is awesome because not only is it small and able to fit inside my other bags, but it also has little compartments for my phone and other essentials which just makes it that much better- aswell as knowing it will protect my camera.

  • Chris Finlayson

    November 19, 2012 02:39 pm

    Well done DPS. It's a great thing you are doing for photographers, and for amateurs. I've recommended your site to numerous people.

    Of the bags, the Montgomery Street Courier is my favourite. I've got a large bag, and it looks like a camera bag. These wonderful bags from Acme Made don't look like camera bags and that's a security feature I like.

    The Street Courier is a good portable size, but would still hold my camera or backup just fine.

    Thanks again DPS and keep up the good work.

  • David Schrapel

    November 19, 2012 02:13 pm

    As a Lumix GH13 owner who does video a Montgomery Street Kit Bag will hold my camera and digital mic when I'm traveling and keep it all hidden from prying eyes - sometimes you just want to get those pics or video and move on, and this looks a lot better then my current enviro shopping bag!

  • Sriram

    November 19, 2012 02:12 pm

    Hi - Best wishes on reaching this milestone. To have come so far in such a short time is remarkable & an achievement to be proud of.

    I've come a long way in photography in just a year's time & I've to admit that a sizeable contribution was made due to my dps membership - from its articles & just by following the challenges & assignments.

    Good Luck !

    All of the four bags are in the collection are good. The Montgomery Street Kit Bag would be my preference though.

  • Jesslyn W.

    November 19, 2012 02:00 pm

    I would love the Street Kit Bag! A large bag came with our Rebel when we bought it but I would love something compact like this to more easily take the camera with me. "Tossing it in my purse" just doesn't work.

  • Jodie

    November 19, 2012 01:23 pm

    Congratulations on 1 million subscribers =) You may be grateful for our support, but most here are grateful you started your blog. This site has assisted me so much in becoming a better photographer, I'm not sure I would be at this point had it not been from all the information and advise generously given by all at DPS.

    Now onto those gorgeous Montgomery Street bags.

    For me it was a toss up between the Street case, because I could toss it in my handbag and conveniently have my DSLR with me all the time. Or the Street backpack, because I could take my DSLR, all my lenses and even my laptop if I wanted to. A backpack is the easiest way to carry it all and that side pocket for quick access to the camera...brilliant!.

    Ummm...since I can only choose one....I choose backpack. I can take all my gear loaded safely on my back as well as my handbag over my shoulder.

    Here's to many more years of DPS!

    November 19, 2012 12:57 pm

    CONGRATULATIONS ON ACHIEVING SUCH AN IMPRESSIVE MILESTONE! The work your team does is amazing. Thank you for being there, particularly for those of us who are pursuing this new hobby with passion.

    My favorite....the Montgomery Street Kit Bag. Right now, I carry a large purse and my camera, macro filters, and other accessories I might need are always in there. I've been trying to decide which bag to purchase, and I think because I have a fixed lens camera, this one would be perfect!

  • Tyson Reiter

    November 19, 2012 04:38 am

    I would like the backpack, it would be easy for me to get to my camera, and extra lens for when I am ice fishing (and I can take my computer with me to upload the pictures right away), or when I am out in the bush hunting/taking photos, or doing some night photography (northern lights in particular in late summer at the lodge that I work at all summer). You pick me, I will take pictures of it, being put to use and some of the pictures that I take (ice fishing, or northern lights)

    Congrats with such a successful project and 1 million users :P

    As many others I like The Montgomery Street Backpack for obvious reasons: You can take laptop and camera with you in ONE BAG - now I have separate backpack for laptop and shoulder bag for my lovely Canon with kit and one additional lens, and I carry around another small shoulder bag for my other stuff. So I really look like a freak a bit :D

    I love DPS even though I read your articles only for a few months now.

    P.S. Hello from a little country Latvia =)

    I can definitely see why everyone is going for the backpack..... Secure and comfortable for your most precious accessories. MacBook, camera, and lenses. Perfect. I also like the sleek design that doesn't scream camera bag. Love it!

    The Montgomery Street Courier bag would suit my needs by providing a discrete way to carry my DSLR and assorted bits when travelling in cities. It would be extremely useful for a trip to Paris in 2013.

    Darren congratulations on 1 million subscribers. I found your site by googling when I recieved my digital SLR for my Birthday last year when looking for imformation on improving my photgraphy skills. I have purchased 2 ebooks that have been an invaluable learning tool. I realy enjoy the assignments and find some extremely challenging in a good way.Your forums and reviews are just what one needs to find the right imformation that is unbiased. Since partaking in the assigmnments I have this year upgraded my Kit with a new Nikon D7000 body, 2 prime lenses and an f2.8 17-50. Conratulations and thank you for the imformation at Dps that helped me choose the kit I now have. I like the Back pack it makes it easy to access you camera while on the move and enough room for you to carry some basic essentials for that important photo opertunity

    I would love to win the Street Courier bag, as It is stylish & unobtrusive. As others have said it doesn't advertise the fact it is a camera bag. I would love to have a camera bag that would actually fit some of my equipment better than my current bag.

  • Natalie

    November 18, 2012 04:06 pm

    I live the Montgomery Street Backpack because it fits all the gear I need when hitting the streets for some shooting action and it doesn't look like a camera bag which is great for when you don't want to advertise you are carrying thousands of dollars worth of gear ! Congrats on the 1 million - it'll be 2 million in no time !!

    The backpack, definitely in olive. I still define myself as a manly man, no "satchel" for me... Plus, it holds much more, including a laptop!

  • Brian

    November 18, 2012 02:01 pm

    I like the Montgomery Street Backpack, sleek and simple design. I always use a backpack because I can carry a lot of things and it's comfortable for me. Hope I win and congratulations to dPS. Keep up the good work guys, you are really helping everyone. :)

    November 18, 2012 01:52 pm

    I LOVE the Kit Bag! It's big enough to fit my camera comfortably (without me worrying about squishing it to death!) plus a few little extras, yet compact enough to be able to fit into a suitcase and go anywhere with me!

  • David Phillips

    November 18, 2012 01:40 pm

    I would like the Montgomery Street Backpack as it looks like it would be great for a walk and to hold a few food items while I am out and about.
    Congrats on the 1 million subscribes.
    Thanks.

    Congratulations on your First Million! I expect that number to continue to rise :)

    Since my camera is always around my neck or hanging by a strap over my shoulder what I have a problem with is what to do with my lenses. In the fall I wear a jacket with pockets.. in summer I stuff extra lenses in a purse. So for me I think the Montgomery Street Kit Bag would be just the right size. Just enough room for lenses, filters, cleaning and my phone and wallet.

  • kirsty

    November 18, 2012 01:09 pm

    The Montgomery Street - because it was designed with me in mind! Quick and easy access to my kit when I'm out exploring with my camera; perfect for A to B travel with it's space for my MacBook Air and kind to my back!

  • emil sacdalan

    I love the Backpack, I live in Hawaii and am planning a trip to the Mainland early next year. I want to bring my wife of 28 years on a multi-state train ride and car adventure. I am in the process right now of buying new gear and am thinking of a Nikon D600 or Canon 6D, not sure yet. But the Montgomery Street Backpack looks perfect for my needs, plenty of room, easy access, it looks very comfortable, and I like the tan color. I congratulate you on your success, that is awesome. I look forward to your newsletter, I carefully mull over every article and check out all of the pics that people submit, it's a great site, I am not surprised at the success you have had with it. I hope to be around for the two millionth customer, keep up the great work, and thanks for the chance to win the backpack.

    Love the backpack! I am always a sucker for things that let you carry more stuff comfortably. The flex fold system sounds awesome and the grey is classic :)

  • Robyn

    November 18, 2012 11:55 am

    I love the Montgomery Street Back Pack because it is stylish (very important as a woman) yet versatile. You can store all of your equipment without worrying about it slipping off of your shoulder when you need to move in an awkward position for any reason. I have actually bent down and hit my equipment on the ground because of my shoulder bag. I also do photo shoots out in the boondocks and would love to have this on my back to keep from worrying about dropping my bag.

  • Rebecca Haines

    November 18, 2012 11:46 am

    im a young photographer and always on the go, i find it hard carrying my big camera case everywhere esspecially with my hand bag- thats why i think the Montgomery Street Kit Bag is awesome because not only is it small and able to fit inside my other bags, but it also has little compartments for my phone and other essentials which just makes it that much better- aswell as knowing it will protect my camera :)
    P.S- congrats on the 1 million subs, you guys are helping so many people :)

  • Matthew Crabtree

    November 18, 2012 11:41 am

    Choice - Montgomery Street Backpack - because it would work very well; and if I'm going to win something, winning the biggest pack would not only fit more stuff, but feel cooler.

  • Jon Weiss

    November 18, 2012 08:45 am

    I would love to win the Montgomery Street backpack since I am a missionary photographer and videographer and am always traveling all over the globe with my kit, so the bigger the bag the better.

    I love the rustic and rugged look these bags have as well.

  • Mary

    November 18, 2012 08:33 am

    Here's hoping you randomly choose my name! the bags look great. Love the gray color. My favorite would be the backpack - I like to travel w/ only "carry-on" luggage, and this would be great for one of my two bags - coiuld carry the camera and computer and have room left over.
    That said, I'd be happy w/ any of them and would use even the smallest for when I take only my compact camera. THANKS IN ADVANCE!

  • Alison

    Congrats! Love Digital photog school. Love the backpack camera bags, large or medium. I am always searching for a backpack purse to carry my equip in when I travel or just walking around. It's so much easier to have hands free when not holding camera & it's easy access to it with a backpack. It's so hard to find lighter weight bags. Thanks for the awesome opportunity.

    1 million, That's great!

    I like the “Montgomery Street Kit Bag”. It is compact and just right for those time when I would need to carry only a small amount of extras on the street.

    Awesome dPS! Keep up the good work.

    I like Montgomery street backpack as there is a separate slot for laptop as well. For my travel photography this would be of great help and is highly cushioned for protection with a simple and comfortable design. :) :)

  • John G Hancock

    November 18, 2012 12:14 am

    I like the looks of the Montgomery street courier. It looks compact and efficient and space enough to carry what you need when packing your photo gear along, yet not big enough to tempt you to try to pack every lens you own and armloads of accessories you will never use when away from home.

  • Bob Allia

    November 18, 2012 12:01 am

    I like the idea of the Montgomery Street Kit Bag. There are many times I want to bring my camera and an extra lens and my larger bags are just too big and bulky. i see this one being perfect to carry that extra lens in a small, unobtrusive bag.
    Congrats on the one million readers! I love your site and read many of your articles. Keep up the good work.

    November 17, 2012 11:45 pm

    The Montgomery Street Backpack is the very ideal gift for me. I am not only a photographer but a wide traveler as well. If I win this bag, all my accessories including my DSLR, tripod, lenses, laptop etc can be accommodated in a single bag. This bag will help my gadgets to be protected from dust and rain which is very obvious in my country.

  • Steve Davison

    Hi Darren,

    That is an incredible achievement - well done. I don't spend enough time on your site unfortunately but the material I have read is always first class.

    Best wishes

    Steve

    P.S. The backpack bag would be nice:-)

    November 17, 2012 10:12 pm

    First of all, great job on reaching such a huge milestone! Having the the ingenuity, motivation and confidence to start one's own business is commendable! But.....having the patience, persistence and inner drive to make such a huge success of it is truly the American way!! Congratulations on such a fantastic accomplishment and best wishes for even greater things to come!

    Now for the contest.....I couldn't believe it when I read about this give-away. I have been looking for something big enough to carry my camera, extra lens and other small miscellaneous accessories in that I could carry over one shoulder and still be able to shoot pictures at the same time. I have had surgeries that has caused lymphedema in my left arm so I am now restricted from carrying anything on and/or over my left shoulder as doing so only makes the swelling worse.

    When I saw the Street Kit Bag in this collection I knew that it would be the PERFECT size, weight and shape for me and that I could carry it with confidence knowing I wasn't going to suffer from increased swelling in my affected arm. Up until now, I have been making due with wearing my camera around my neck and carrying my extra lens in an awkward little camera case that hard and very inconvenient to get things in and out of. The Street Kit Bag would definitely make going out and shooting pictures fun again rather that it being frustrating chore! I am keeping my fingers crossed!!

  • Ori Carmi

    November 17, 2012 09:01 pm

  • Michael Chiricosta

    November 17, 2012 08:40 pm

    I really like the Bigger backpack out of the four offered. As a student, having more space is never something to look down upon. Between books, laptop, food, random assortments of pens an pencils, and most importantly my camera, this bag would do wonders in order to help me organize all my belongings within a single bag. Simply throwing your camera in cloth and down to the bottom of your school backpack doesn't do the trick. I want to have my camera protected, while also having the ability to keep all my stuff in one place.

    This would be awesome to win, especially since the whole broke college student photographer is about as low as you can get on the money chain, and paying over $100 for a good camera backpack that I can also use for class and life in general is just out of the question. Thank you for the opportunity!

  • Pedro Jimenez

    The Montgomery Street Backpack is what I would select. As a mother of a two year old, a teacher who carries a personal mac book and camera to school, I believe this back is a must! Modern, practical, and durable.

  • Beth

    November 17, 2012 04:15 pm

    The Courier looks perfect for a backup system. I have a backpack but there is some overflow and I tend to switch lenses a lot when I'm shooting.

    I like the Montgomery Street Back pack. Every 2 years I go to Tanzania, Africa and do a hike of Empakai Crater with a Massai warrior. The back pack would be perfect because it would allow me to take additional lenses without breaking my shoulders and back. My husband would be happy too since he wouldn't have to be my sherpa.

I was looking over the Montgomery street bags, and I would really enjoy having the Montgomery street Carrier, it looks like the perfect size for what I need to carry. I don't have any room in my current bag for any extra lenses. a new bag would be a fantastic treat!

    Wow, reaching to one million mark is great. I loved the "Montgomery Street Courier" bag it has enough space to carry most required gears and its compact too. Love the gray/yellow color also. No matter if win or not, but I will buy this when I buy my next lens(hopefully within next 4 months).

    Also, Acme Made's Montgomery Street Backpack is my pick because of the capacity and weight distribution across both shoulders. Also, it looks good!

    Hey! I have just joined up this week - perhaps I was your 1,000,000th subscriber!!!!!!!!!

    I love the Street Courier Bag because:
    > It looks well padded and has well thought out sectioning
    >easy access to the well designed side pockets
    > it does not obviously look like a camera bag, so less likely to be stolen
    > it is a great size to use when carrying equipment on an aircraft
    > for day use it would hold everything necessary including a small tripod and water bottle
    > sensible colour choice for the outer shell and I love the lime yellow contrasting inner sections
    > perfect size - not too big, not too small

    thank you

    It is great to see you have reached your 1 million subscribers mark well done.
    Please add me to the draw for the Montgomery street backpack.
    I love the fact that it is both stylish and practical but doesn't look like a camera bag, which makes it ideal for travel where you often don't wish to draw attention to yourself carrying all this expensive gear around.

    The Street Courier is the perfect size for me. I would not be overwhelmed by carrying 2 bags. 1 with the camera and 1 with lenses. The green color is super stylish. The extra pockets are also handy for less baggage to carry on a shoot or walk around town.

    These are great camera bags. I would be most interested in the courier bag. I need something that I could use in addition to a travelers backpack for my (still unscheduled) trip to Thailand to visit friends. Thank you for DP and Acme Made.

    Congratulations Darren and to your team - a huge achievement :-) I've been signed up to your newsletter for over a year now and low receiving it each week - full of great tips and inspiration! I registered with DPS last week and entered my first assignment!

    I would love to win the Courier bag for my husband. He now also has a DSLR and we are learning together. We share our lenses so another camera bag would be terrific! I checked out the Montgomery website and all of there bags look fantastic, love the fact there is plenty of room for lap/note books and for other personal items.

    Thank you.

    Congratulations! 1M is a huge accomplishment. Really like the Montgomery Street Backpack. Looks large enough to hold all my gear, stylish enough to go with my sense of style and doesn't look like a camera bag. Nice product!

    Congratulations..!!! I have been following this website, since I bought my new canon T3i few months back. This website has been really helpful in getting me started and I feel proud to say that, I can take some good pictures now. My preference for the bag would be the street backpack as it is very easy to carry around. I already have another bag like the courier one but it is very uncomfortable.

    I take a lot of sports and outdoors. The Montgomery Street Backpack would be the ideal carrier of all my equipment. Really nice looking, has plenty of room, and convenience for quick access.

    Really enjoy the site and glad to be a part of the 1 Million. I have gained some much from DPS and my photography continues to improve.

    Congratulations on the 1 million members! This site has heled me over the last three years (since I was 12) to learn great techniques and attain new skills. It takes a lot of dedication to do something like this- and I thank you and the contributors greatly.

    I am currently 15 and am a paid photographer, and every last cent I make goes into my camera equiment. I haven't been able to purchase a bag yet as I haven't had many jobs, and this is hard because I carry around my tripod, camera, and my extra lens. It would be great to have something like the Montgomery Street Backpack to carry my gear in and I hope it would make a huge difference in ease of carrying. Again, I am very thankful for this website and the team :)

  • Joniah

    November 17, 2012 07:01 am

    I am 14 and started photography at 12, then got into it when I purchased myself a Canon 40D. Right now, I just lug around my Dad's VERY old Sony Video Camera case which only fits my camera and one lens (which I probably will be doing until I can afford a bag!) . It would be great to have space for the rest of my lenses as well as my tripod and filters, softbox.. I am a paid photographer, but every cent I earn goes towards my equipment. It would help alot if I could carry the appropriate equipment with me for photoshoots and candid shots. I thank you and your team very much for this website, the dedication, and it has helped me along to learn many things and has kept me very busy! Congratulations on 1 million members :)

    Congratulations! on 1m subscribers! Great job...

    I like "Montgomery Street Kit Bag" because -
    1) Its small but fits one DSLR plus few accessories needed for street photography.
    2) Nice color
    3) Although its small...it looks manly! yay!

    Congrats on reaching the milestone and congrats to u too Dan!!! U r articles are a revelation in itself and has helped me to learn more as an amateur.
    and the icing on the cake.....a Montgomery bag....saw them for the first time and i am floored.
    they look so chic. The street courier is the one that I vote for. hell it does not even look like a camera bag. The texture the color gives a altogether premium feel. Say wow to that. And indeed people will look back if you are carrying one. And inside it looks spacious and yet compact. Just the bag you want to put your precious camera in and turn some heads at the same time.

    I like Montgomery Street Courier the best. Because it is more versatile than the backpack, bag is more suitable for the office dress code too, since I try to take my camera everywhere with me.

  • Laura Martinez

    November 17, 2012 06:24 am

    I like and prefer the Montgomery Street Courier because
    -for me it could be the most comfortable out of the other camera bags
    -It has more space than the Montgomery Street Kit bag and the Montgomery Street Case bag but its not as big as the Montgomery Street Backpack, so it would just be perfect for me

  • Colleen

    November 17, 2012 05:34 am

    I love these bags.... the style and sleekness is great! I would really like the Montgomery Street Kit Bag because I am just getting started and really do not carry anything else around besides my camera and lenses right now. Additionally, it would be so great for easy mobility and quick access. Then if I eventually grow out of it, I can pass it on to someone else getting started!

  • Seth Stevenson

    November 17, 2012 05:30 am

    I love the street courier bag! I like the quick access to what would by my DSLR and the storage for extra lenses, my grey card, light meter, and a snack. Great for my day trips to Toronto!

  • Ana

    Your site is a real treasure for photographers of all levels of skills, and very versatile in it's contents.

    I myself have lerant a lot from the site and the newsletter gives a weekly dose of photog goodness.

    I'd love to Montgomery Street Courier bag as that will compliment my style and will help me carry my Canon 60D, couple of accessories during my favorite day trips when i love to travel light but yet dont want to loose out on key items. I am hoping this gift will make it's way from Melbourne, Australia to Toronto, Canada :)

    November 17, 2012 03:18 am

    Darren congratulations for all the hard work. I've been reading your newsletter every single time for years now... keep up the good work!

    I would favour The Montgomery Street Courier in gray, as in addition to the camera it can hold numerous other stuff during a photo day out in the city (either a home city or in a far away place (e.g. maps, travel documents, tickets, etc.) with the plus of easy access. The stylish design is ideal for a city stroll.

    Thanks from Greece!

    Hi DPS
    Congratulations with attaining 1 million subscribers! I’ve just joined, was I that one I wonder? I would like to vote for the Street Courier. It’s stylish with lots of space and protection for your camera equipment. It’s got the zipped side for quick access to your camera without having to rummage through all your equipment and it has the FlexFold System. Also it does not shout I have an expensive camera in here and I think the brushed metal finish is up-to-date and elegant. Excellent web site, keep up the good work.
    Many thanks
    Dave.

  • Stefanie

    November 17, 2012 03:10 am

    All four of these have so much style with function it's awesome! The backpack is perfect for my Extra lenses, flash, battery pack, and laptop plus a couple of snacks and coffee for a busy mommy with other bags in tow. It is so difficult to haul around my current camera bag for work plus diaper bag plus baby plus coffee. Being able to backpack my way of making a living would relieve so much of that tension. I love your website and all your tips and information has really been so helpful especially when I'm delving into new territory. I always recommend you to friends and family that want to know what I do about the craft. Thanks so much! <3

    I like the Montgomery Street Backpack because I love the style, especially the olive color. It has more than enough room for all of my supplies along with my laptop and anything else I may need without being bulky, and the way it is organized is wonderful.

    Thank you for this opportunity!

    I think the entire line of camera bags would be wonderful. But since we have to pick just one I really like the "Street Courier". The collection offers a person a bag for every occaision andpurpose. You can travel light or bring everything with you at once.

    The bags are stylish, well made and will really protect your camera and gear.

    ACME is a name known for its quality proudcts! Four people are going to get some really nice bags!

    Keeping my fingers crossed!

    Hi,

    Congratulations on your progress, and thank you very much for your faithfulness. I am blessed by the articles you post, and share them with my fellow photographer (family members who got 'shooting' about twice a month) on face book. We all enjoy your articles.

    I like the street backpack because I carry my ipad and/or laptop with me all the time instead of a purse. I like the accessibility of just reaching around and pulling my camera out.. like a Quick Draw McGraw. Oh, and the water bottle.. I like that too.

    Anyway, keep up the great work and be blessed.
    Creation is beautiful.

  • Krystal

    November 17, 2012 01:33 am

    I really like the Montgomery street Courier. It's big enough to hold a body and several lenses but its not so big that it would be a pain to carry it around wherever i go... I just found this website about a month ago and i really like it. I am a beginner photographer and i love getting your "newsletter" every week... thanks so much.... krystal

  • Deb

    November 17, 2012 12:26 am

    Montgomery Street Backpack. I like to shoot birds and that requires a lot of walking and I also like to have my field guides to help me identify. Other than the ease of using a backpack, I really loved the side access for the camera!

  • Ron

    November 16, 2012 11:58 pm

    I am new to the DSLR but not to taking photo's, therefore I am working with my old bag (that's camera bag), and hope to get a new one soon. I have gained a great deal of knowledge from this site and thank you ever so much. As most everyone knows NJ was hit by "Sandy" and I have been taking photo's for people needing shots of damage for insurance and personal records. My problem is that I cannot take all my gear without going back to the car and getting the other lense or tripod or filter as I lack sufficient space and lose time with each stop I make, all these shots are free to anyone so I also go through a lot of SD cards as well. I really need the backpack style bag which would really help getting me from place to place where I can leave the car and walk or take the bike. Congrats on the million of people using this site, keep shooting!

    Hi,
    Bit new to this but here goes.
    We are travelling full time in a 5th wheel caravan 38ft long.
    Love taking photos and am trying to get a few dollars from this by contributing to some travel mags.
    The courier bag would hold enough for a day out,be easy to access,and secure.
    The courier bag could feature in some future shots and, perhaps, be seen by many.
    We are in Margaret River WA at present but our plans are vast..........to the far reaches of our known galaxy....
    Congratulations on a great site.

    Congratulations for this historical mark! One million subscribers is a very significant number! It show us the results of serious efforts and commitment of the DPS as a team! And that number is the consequence! We, at Brazil, enjoy so much your site! All the books and articles help us to be better photographers and, when need, they help us to give orientations and instructions to our community (at the schools, for the children, etc). Thank you for all!

    I would like to win The Montgomery Street Backpack because of the following reasons:

    - nice style;
    - very intelligent project;
    - it permits me to put all my stuff inside it (amazing!!)

    Thank you again!

  • Dave

    November 16, 2012 11:05 pm

    I have just recently subscribed to DPS and have to say I am not surprised that you now have over 1 million subscribers. I am an amateur photographer with loads to learn and you are certainly providing me with plenty of guidance and tips, for which I am most grateful. So, thank you very much and please keep up the good work.

    As for the bags, my preference is the Montgomery Street Courier. This bag is both fashionable and practical and is an ideal size, allowing me to carry all my camera equipment and my iPad whether out on long walks or just out in the town looking for those great photo opportunities.

    Good luck to everyone who has entered the competition and many thanks again to everyone at DPS for providing an outstanding service to all us keen photographers...long may it continue.

    Hi well done and thanks for the information and motivation you provide to an enthusiast!! I think it would be awesome to have theMontgomery Street Kit Bag as I don't like carrying around a huge amount of gear but I like it to be protected. Excellent for traveling I think and I would be delighted to put it to the test for you as I have a little trip planned for next year to Vietnam!!

  • Glenn

    November 16, 2012 10:28 pm

    November 16, 2012 10:12 pm

    Love the look of this collection but can't decide between the Montgomery street kit bag or the Montgomery street courier. Both have a distinct purpose that would suit me.... lightweight and compact or take everything with me - that really depends on my mood. If you gave me either, I would not be disappointed!

  • Ben Ashmore

    The Montgomery Street Backpack is my choice for the max space that it offers, especially the idea of stacking tripod inside looks cool, but I suggest if Montgomery's try to make this a Water/Rain proof will be a good USP for them and all of US !!

    Hi Darren, congratulations to you and your team. I feel kinda good that I FINALLY registered with you and posted my first assignment during the week, I feel like I added to the whole one millionth thing ;-) I have subscribed to your newsletter for over a year now and love receiving it each week, it never disappoints, always filled with endless tips and inspiration.

    WOW the Montgomery collection looks terrific. Love the fact that there is plenty of room for your camera and a few lenses, plus nice safe pockets for your mobile phone, lap/note book, and other personal items.

    I think I would love the Backpack for my husband. We both have DSLRs now and share our lenses.

    The backpack looks amazing! I'd be able to carry all my gear without looking like a dork with a bulging camera bag. And so I surrender myself to fortune.

    Hi,

    Congrats on the growth of the site.

    I would choose the Montgomery Street Kit Bag as it would be good to have a smaller bag for when I only need the bare minimum.

    Congratulations DPS! Hitting 1Million is really quite a milestone! And you're really the best thing there is when it comes to Digital Photography. Your tips and tutorials really helped for us newbies in the photography world. Keep it up DPS Team! and here's to another 1Million to come!

    And for the giveaway, the Street Courier would be a perfect fit, since i love to travel, and it will give me the flexibility to take other accessories too! And a shade of green would make it complete!

    Thanks DPS!

    1 Million is too much to count, wow! SUPER!

    Well, to be honest, dPS deserves it 10 times over. Now, regarding the bag...
    I am a student at a University in South Africa and I have recently won the universities' photo competition with the following photo:
    [eimg link='http://www.flickr.com/photos/oandewaal/8097699376/' title='Sky view of the Rembrandt' url='http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8189/8097699376_2185797f2c.jpg']

    So I got a new camera recently, but I still need a camera bag to fit my 13" MacBook and my DSLR. So looking from my perspective I would definitely choose the Montgomery Street Backpack. As a student this is a clear winner. I go to the desert or wildlife safari's where this would change my life. I can have my MacBook and camera in the same bag seamlessly. Not only is it very practical and spacious, but also elegant and unthinkably stylish! In fact, I believe it is something that should be showcased next to the Crown Jewels!

    So compliments to the designers. They have a great eye for style and functionality!

    Regards

    Congratulations! Your success is an encouragement to so many of us.

    The Montgomery Street Backpack would definitely be my choice. Retirement begins in December and vacationing begins almost immediately. The backpack would be perfect for our planned hikes on three of the Hawaiin Islands! At home, being able to pull out a MacBook to load and edit photos between shoots would be incredibly convenient.

    Congratulations with getting 1 million subscribers! It's a proof that the lessons where usefull :)
    I have a acer laptop and a camera with two lenses, but more will come ;) so It would be usefull to have all of it with me every day! So I would definitely go for the Montgomery Street Backpack!

    Greetings Manuel.

    The Courier bag is the one for me, it looks like the perfect holiday tote bag for the camera, it's not obviously a camera bag, it will take the iPad too, I have a backpack for work which holds my camer and work laptop too and it's way too heavy for trolling around when on hols.

    Side access is a must have feature for me these days.

  • David Bloom

    November 16, 2012 07:37 pm

    The Street Courier seems like the best all around bag. Easy side access to the camera compartment and well designed upper compartment for all of those things you dont have enough hands for. Most of us dont go for the photo treks and thhis bag answers to the need of an effecient day shooting.

    I joined this site with absolutely no formal training in digital photography, but with the regular tips and tutorials I have received, now I can even share some of that I have learned with my friends! Thank you for helping us newbies in this wonderful world of photography. Keep it up DPS Team!

    And about the giveaway from ACME, the Montgomery Street Courier is a perfect fit for me since I love to travel and carry with me my DSLR, plus it gives the flexibility of additional space to accommodate other accessories. And I'd love it in green!

    its indeed i happy moment as i am one of it..this website has helped me a lot to improve my hobby (photography ). all the post on this site are very well written and are easy to understand unlike other sites.
    as far as the give away is concerned, i would say i liked "Montgomery Street Case" as its very slim n compact though but will fit in my camera very easily and will be very easy to carry around. if i m the lucky one to get selected i would love to get this bag from DPS.

    once again very congratulation to achieve this success & many more to come in near future.

    Hi, I'd love to have the Montgomery Street Courier! I think it is a great looking day bag. I'm a newbie, so this would certainly be a big help for me to keep my camera with me on a daily basis. I'm sure it is sturdy and functional. However, if I only leave your site with the information that you have already shared- I am blessed. Thank you so much for all of your efforts, know that you are really helping millions.

    November 16, 2012 05:49 pm

    I think I need a Montgomery Street Kit Bag as there are many times when I put my camera in my purse rather than take my backpack. I have to take the backpack right off to access the camera and then I am worried about other gear falling out. The smaller bag doesn't shout "camera" and can be taken anywhere.

  • Lily Foss

    November 16, 2012 05:36 pm

    Congrats, I,m just starting, learning lots of great thing from you and the team. Thank you. I like all the bags, I don,t have a bag yet so any one of them would be super great for me. Looking forward to learning lots more. Again, Thank you all so much.

  • Megha

    November 16, 2012 05:34 pm

    It would be nice to have a Montgomery Street Backpack because i end up carrying my camera bag in a backpack anyway . I especially love the side panel that allows for easy access to the camera :D It's a well thought out design with a good style quotient :-)

  • Joginder Singh

    November 16, 2012 05:30 pm

    First of all, Congratulations for a million subscribers.and Secondly many thanks for the tips which you provide. The information which you provide has definitely helped me to excel in the field of photography.
    The bag which i liked the most is The Montgomery Street Backpack because it is spacious, trendy and easy to carry, that is all that you need when you are on a move with your camera.

  • Paul Parkinson

    November 16, 2012 05:24 pm

    another reason DPS is great! Not only this bag my favorite color, with the grain matching my branding...the exactl color match for my website, and logo branding, Im heading on a trip to washing DC on Nov 30th and the ability to rock this in the nations capital would be an honor :) Courierall the way, because I have a backpack, and see the value in a messenger for sure!

  • Chris

    November 16, 2012 05:20 pm

    Congratulations to 1 million subscribers. Great show, but absolutely deserved. I would prefer the Street

  • Lydia Lacerda

    November 16, 2012 05:18 pm

    Congrats on reaching the million milestone!!

    The bag I really crave is the Street Case - its neat, compact, doesn't scream "look at me - I have LOTS of expensive equipment!!" as do the other regular camera bags. The Street Case would be ideal for "street" photography where one doesn't want to be perceived as carrying a lot of equipment - especially in Cape Town, South Africa (where robbery is a way of life for many) which is where I live!

  • zzzmadison

    November 16, 2012 05:17 pm

    I like the backpack the most.. Not the hiking-type nor the executive-type, something stylish and functional at the same time. Wonderful ^^

  • Nicole Harlan

    First of all, I love dps! You have provided a wealth of knowledge for all levels of photographers, so thank you for all the hard work. And congrats on the amazing growth you've had. I'm sure you will have continued success.

    My favorite bag is the Montgomery Street Backpack. I love to take pictures during hikes in the mountains and this backpack has plenty of room for everything I need to take with me... camera, water, a snack, cell, keys, etc. It also has a great stylish look to it! So.. it would also be great for my upcoming trip to Europe while I walk around sightseeing and taking amazing pictures!

    I would love a Montgomery Street Backpack which is versatile enough to carry a laptop alongwith a DSLR and some lenses.

  • Silas Jose

    November 16, 2012 04:46 pm

    oh cool back pack, since I am using 18-270 mm lens I don't need to change lens frequently, so I like to have a backpack mostly. And Montgomery Street Backpack looks awesome. I am very new to digital photography school, then also within this limited period I earned a lot of Knowledge from here. From the day I first saw the digital photography school website,it is kept loaded in one tab, since am getting stuck to interesting posts...thank you...

  • Rajan Advani

    November 16, 2012 04:44 pm

    Congratulations for your great success in generating one million viewers and may the tribe keep on increasing.

    All the 4 bags are very essential for me, as each one is tailored for different occasion/ event.

    The most preferred is the " THE STREET COURIER" as this will serve be be my daily use all around bag

    The second most preferred will be the "STREET BACKPACK" which will serve my purpose to carry my gear on longer journey where a lot of walking is involved, this bag will help me carry a reasonable amount of lens and some essentials and I can walk and shoot hands free.

    The third most preferred will be the "KIT BAG" which I can carry for shorter assignment and where I do not wish to project as a photographer, I can carry my mirror-less with a couple of lens or a point and shoot.

    The forth most preferred is th kit bag in which I can carry my point and shoot or compact camera.

    All four bags are very useful and essential for different occasions from my point of view.

  • ED KNOX

    November 16, 2012 04:39 pm

    I prefer your courier model bag because, being 24/7 in a power chair, I cannot use a backpack, and the courier is big enough to carry my photo equipment.

    Keep going!

  • Kathryn

    November 16, 2012 04:24 pm

    I love the Montgomery street Backpack - i love that its big enough to fit everything you need in it, or just simply your camera and items for those days where you don't want to cart all you gear around. Also the easy access functions of the bag, no need opening loads of parts to get to your camera.

  • Oric Bui

    November 16, 2012 04:20 pm

    I like .... actually love the Montgomery Street Back Pack. It has non-traditional color and shape design for camera bag. It's bold and has a retro look. It looks spacious enough for the pro need. Styles but not sacrifice functions so you can't that. Just wondered what is the price tag on this one?? ; )

  • Maddie

    November 16, 2012 04:19 pm

    I just found this blog a few months ago and absolutely love it! I'm glad to hear a passion with humble beginnings has grown so grandly! I love the Montgomery Street Backpack because of the backpack style. I currently have a sling bag and I really dislike how the weight is distributed and the tight fit for my gear.

  • Rajan Advani

    November 16, 2012 04:19 pm

    All the Bags are great and each one is designed for a specific purpose:

    The most preferred is the STREET COURIER because this will be the most suitable "walk around bag " for daily use where I can carry one DSLR and a couple of lens plus some small accessories.

    The next most preferred is the is the BACK PACK as this will serve the purpose of taking my gear for for a longer outing like landscape photography, I can carry my DSLR plus some lens along with accessories and small personal essentials, carry it on my back and walk hands free while taking pictures on the move.

    The next most preferred bag is the "KIT BAG" which I can use when I need to carry just the DSLR in places where I wish to travel light or a where some quick photography has to be done with a single walk around lens or to carry a point and shoot camera or a mirror-less camera with a couple of interchangeable lens. Very helpful to take to places where you do not wish to be looked upon as a photographer.

    The next most preferred is the case, which I can carry my expensive mirror-less or a point and shoot , it can be easily be put inside a suitcase or carried in the hand.

    From my point of view all the four bags are preferred bags for different occasions.

    November 16, 2012 04:08 pm

    Hi, congratulations on your achiefment. Hard work always pays off. I like the Montgomery street backpack,because I can then also travel with my notebook. You always end up taking so much pictures that all of your memory cards are full and with this bag, I do not have to carry my notebook seperately to download my picture. Thank you for a wonderfull website full of information for all of us. You make a rookie look like a pro...Regards Melani

  • JK

    November 16, 2012 04:07 pm

    The Montgomery Courier, which is very light weight, is the most versatile. There is room for an extra lense, the manual and a notetaker pad and more. I can see using this on an "over the pond trip" or around home. Wished I'd had something like this the last trip. It would be a great way to keep the camera and items collected and organized.
    Grey is very stylish and professional looking. Nylon fiber content should make it very durable.

    Being a novice to photography, I am constantly learning new techniques and tips. This is an enjoyable site.

    Thanks to the sponsors Acme Made for this contest.

    If I were to win , I would choose the Kit Bag. Being new to the photography business , I have so much to learn. What I lack in knowledge I make up in passion and skill. Going on photo shoots with a nice kit bag like this will keep me organized and give me a stylish professional look. I have learned quite a bit from you and I look forward tomore.
    Thank everyone who help make this such a great site!

  • Andrew

    November 16, 2012 03:24 pm

    It's thanks to the information I was able to get on this site that I chose to stay in photography. Congrats on all your success. I like the The Montgomery Street Backpack not only because I can carry my laptop, but also the side access is a great feature.

    I love The Montgomery Street Backpack !

    Every time I go out on a photo shoot, you will see me like a soldier carrying his guns, mags, radio etc. which make me lose a little interest while unloading them from shoulders at the photography site. And it always makes me say 'Oh god, be my assistant, to carry all these!'

    I see my humble assistant in The Montgomery Street Backpack :-)

    Great Idea, Great Design, Great Help-Personified !

    Wow, congratulations on reaching the one million mark of subscribers! I first found out about this website only last year, when my Year 10 photography teacher suggested I visit some of your ridiculously easy to read and understand tutorials and articles. I fell in love with dps and subscribed right away, and here I am now!

    Although, due to the amount of comments already, the chance of me winning this is minuscule, I would still like to say that I would love the BACKPACK. It is exactly the right size for a student photographer, as it will fit not only my DSLR and tripod etc, it will also fit my MacBook and a few other small objects needed for school. This will mean I wont have to lug two bags to school everyday. My current camera bag is too big for my camera, as it was bought for an older, chunkier camera and I couldn't afford to replace it when I received my current camera from my Dad.

    Anyway, I would love to win the backpack, but the chance is low, so I dont have my hopes up.

    Congratulations again for reaching one million, and thanks for the articles, help, and this competition!

    The Montgomery Street Courier is my pick of the collection. It is large enough for my DSLR, lenses and a few accessories while still being a stylish, compact bag to carry. Well made with excellent design features.

    Congratulations to all at dPS for this milestone. Keep up the good work. The newbies out there (like me) need all the help we can get.

    Love the Montgomery Street Kit Bag. Not too big but will hold what I need. The extra pockets in the front for cell phone, keys, etc would be perfect for my visits to Botanical gardens. They look well made but lightweight.

FIrst of all, it doesn't scream camera bag/backpack, I LOVE that! It looks very contemporary in style and the multifunctionality is great. My female sensibilities are very appreciative of not making it look like a typical backpack. Thanks for running the contest!

  • Nancy Bailey

    November 16, 2012 03:04 pm

  • Vinh

    November 16, 2012 02:55 pm

    The street backpack looks awesome for someone who needs to tote around things in addition to the camera. That'd definitely the bag I'd want.

    Well done! I've been a subscriber to your website's RSS since 2009 and I must say I learned a lot. Thanks for the selfless sharing.

    My favourite is Montgomery Street Courier, as I owned a Kata Bumblebee UL-222 right now, I find accessing camera/lens on the go is a bit tough. Hence a sling bag solves all the difficulty. I'm obsessed with my 10-22 but sometimes f/2.8 on 17-55 is crucial for walk around shots too. So having 2 lenses and use them interchangeably is breeze on a sling bag.

    With this bag I can stop hunting and start shooting.

    Well done! I've been a follower of your blog since 2009 which I first upgraded to dSLR from my prosumer Canon G7, and I find those tips are superb. I'm grateful for the selfless sharing.

    My favourite of the bag would be Montgomery Street Courier, as I already owned a Bumblebee UL-222 right now, I found it a bit cumbersome to reach to the compartment to change lens often. With Montgomery Street Courier I can use it while walking around during travelling, changing lens is a breeze. I'm obsessed with my 10-22 but I still need the f/2.8 from my 17-55 sometimes. 2 lenses and an iPad for reviewing photos (transferred via eye-fi) would be just nice.

    With this bag, I can stop hunting for bag and start shooting more.

    I like the street bag - that its well made is a given - but how I envision using it is as an addition to my sling rig. I shoot events and I heed a bag to protect my camera body while it is on my sling. If it doesn't fit I can use it for all my portable lighting whatnots...congrats!

    I love my weekly tips and the articles. The shooting tips always seem to coincide with something that has been on my mind. Wishing you and your group continued success. My pick would be the Montgomery Street Courier bag. Ahhhhh. It looks tough, easy to access as well as sleek and stylish. I love a bag that can go to dinner and to a photo shoot all in one day.

    Wow, congratulations! I only found out about this website recently when I was perusing around the web. But I have to say, this website is fantastic! It has really helpful tips and information on photography. Keep up the good work! By the way I like the Montgomery Street Courier. It's very handy when you carry around a lot of stuff and allows for easy access to your camera for when those great moments happen!

    Keep the great job going, knowing that the good work done here has influenced, helped and impacted the photography community positively around the world.

    I would really love to have the Montgomery Street Kit Bag. It looks like a versatile bag that I can effortlessly carry around with me on my usual street photography trips. It seems to be able to fit snugly both a DSLR or also a compact camera (which also means, it could fit a mirrorless system that I would like to invest in soon!).

    Again, congratulations!

  • Craig

    November 16, 2012 01:21 pm

    Wow. I stumble on this site about a year ago and always enjoy getting new tips from time to time. I can see why it is so popular.

    While all four bags look good I could use the Street Kit Bag. I just came back from a trip to Indonesia and while on the Komodo island (taking pictures of the infamous dragons) it started to pour. All I had with me to keep the camera dry was my hat. This bag seems small enough to carry to have a quick place to protect the camera in when adverse conditions show up.

    Thanks.

  • WoRN808

    How can I begin to decide which of the four Montgomery Street bags would be my favorite. They are all very attractive bags, well-designed and I'm sure well-crafted. Think that smart decisions were made when designing the compartments. I think that big backpack would be great for busy photography day trips and vacations. Like that it is an actual backpack with two straps. I think the kit bag would be great for daily use (I never go anywhere without a camera) and nice it has a shoulder strap as I've generally already enough to carry in my hands.

  • Bethany

    November 16, 2012 01:12 pm

  • Doris

    I want that Montgomery Street Backpack! I am a birder and travel a lot. I always take a camera, binoculars, and a Macbook. One bag would be so much easier through security checks than three!

    Congrats on your success. I love the site and visit it often.

    November 16, 2012 12:44 pm

    OMG this is awesome! I would love any of the bags because I don't have a camera bag! But I think my favorite is the Street Backpack! I would like it because it holds a ton of things and when I go out snapping pics I wouldn't have to carry just one lens and I would be able to put my camera away when its not in use! And to top it all of its so CUTE!

  • Judy

    November 16, 2012 12:43 pm

    Hi there,
    I'm a fan of the backpack because it's easier on the shoulders when carrying a few kg of gear. The stylish design doesn't scream "i'm a camera bag" so I would feel more comfortable carrying it around, especially when traveling. I like the side zip for easy accessibility.

    cheers and keep up the good work!

    Hi Darren congrats on 1 million subscribers :) that's fantastic.

    I had a look at the 4 bags on the site and thought about some of the bigger bags but to be honest I already have a backpack and I love it already so to be fair to everyone else I looked at the smaller bags instead. The one that stood out to me was the Montgomery Street Kit Bag. I travel on public transport frequently and would love a tiny bag to carry around that's low profile and very small to navigate between rush hour. I shoot street photography on my days off and would love to have a bag dedicated to housing my little Gf1 camera and one extra lens combo and my ipod. thanks and good luck to everyone :) Kylie

  • Keirol

    November 16, 2012 12:10 pm

    I love the montgomery street pack as it is big enough but still very stylish to wear when doing photography in public. Also, I like that it can also hold my laptop and I can easily put my camera on the side without needing to remove my bag at my back. This is perfect for taking pictures in style :)

  • Luca Gandolfo

    November 16, 2012 12:08 pm

    Congratulations on the 1mio mark, Darren.
    As for the bag, i pretty much fancy the Montgomery Street Kit Bag, as I think it would complement my kit with something classy and practical for a quick day shoot.

    Keep up the good work and looking forward to the 2 million mark :)

  • Marina Golias

    November 16, 2012 12:08 pm

    The Montgomery Street Kit Bag most appeals to me at the moment. I need a camera bag that opens the wy this does for easy access. When i am in a hurry to catch a shot, i dont want to be fumbling trying to get my camera out.
    Then again the other 3 bags have features i like too, but the Kit Bag is most practical for me :)

  • Bruce

    November 16, 2012 12:04 pm

    Great site--I love it and have learned so much.
    My favorite from the Montgomery Street Collection is the Courier. Looks like it is just the right size for walking around and shooting for an afternoon. Plenty of room for a camera an extra lens or two and a few other necessities. Has a great look too.

    Congratulations for reaching 1M subscribers. I'm one of your recent subscribers and I wish I had known about your site earlier. I own a NIkon D90 but was at a lost, just shooting anything for the sake of using my camera. When I came across your website, I learned alot about techniques and whatnot. I'm so thankful to you.. And continue inspiring people like us so we may capture the beauty of the world around us.

    By the way, thank you also for this splendid giveaway. I am interested in the Montgomery Courier. Being a woman, when we go out, we not only carry the camera and lens, but a whole bunch of stuff too so this will be perfect for me. And my umbrella can fit in this too.. ( since it's rainy here). I hope I get chosen so I can have that dream bag of mine!!!!

    Thanks a lot and more power!

    Thank you for making this site possible! I've learned lots from this site in my short time in photography.

    The bag I would like the most is the Montgomery Street Backpack. Street photography was what drew me into the wider world of photography - I loved seeing people in their element. When I got my first camera, I went straight out and realized how scary it is to take photos of strangers! Ever since, I've been fine tuning my street skills, and a bag like the Street Backpack would help me carry all my gear (with style, I might add) and be unobtrusive as I point my camera at the old man giving me dirty looks :)

    Keep up the great work on the site!

    I like the Montgomery Street Backpack because it is a "backpack", and as such it is easy to carry around. I do not like bags hanging from my shoulder; they usually fall. All Montgomery bags are very stylish.

    Hi!
    I'd like to say Congratulations for reaching 1 million subscribers. Indeed, this website has helped a lot in my photography hobby.
    As for the Montgomery bag, I like the Montgomery Street Backpack because you can place all of your things in one bag and you wouldn't have any trouble locating this and that from one bag to the other. It's a plus since you can also carry with you your laptop if you plan to travel for a long time. This way, you can shoot and edit while traveling. All of your gear would be in one secure place. Plus a backpack is more suitable when carrying lots of gear, it won't hurt your back much and it is more convenient when traveling.
    Cheers and more power to you! :-)

I need to carry my laptop with me as well as my camera gear, so this would be a perfect traveling companion for me. I love the ability to access everything either from the top or the side zipper. Lots of room for my other goodies too, and it is NOT black. Love all of them., Need the backpack. Congrats on a great product.

    Congratulations indeed for all of those one million subscribers, naturally, since digital photography has become more affordable on most levels, everybody need some good resources to get started, to know what they are doing, and I have to say, DPS has been an invaluable resource for us.

    Have I touched your graceful part yet?

    Ok, pun aside, I think the Montgomery Street Courier would be perfect, as it is horizontally slim, so we can move among people, I'm thinking of two DSLR setup, one outside, and the other one inside, with other stuffs like a flash and triggers, reachable at any moment, faster than a backpack. I do have have shoulder problem with messenger types though, but that's another story entirely.

  • Les Moyle

  • Cliff

    November 16, 2012 10:56 am

    I think the Montgomery Street Courier is the best - casual enough to bring with you everywhere, but formal enough wear with suits or blazers as well - something that is difficult for backpacks to pull off. Though it doesn't hold weight as elegantly as a backpack, it seems much more versatile.

  • Kendall Lee

    dPS Rocks! I recently purchased my first dslr. A Canon t3i . I just returned from a trip to Chemnitz Germany where I was able to try out framing ideas I learned from your newsletter. I can't thank you enough for those pointers, because the pics I took were far beyond anything I could have imagined for a newbie photographer. I received many great comments on Facebook and all I could think was that I would not have had anything near as awesome had I not read your article just before I left.

    I like to bike and think the Acme Made backpack would be a great way to safely take my camera with me. I checked out the Acme Made website and really like the sage green color option!

    Congrats on your milestone!

    I am just starting out as semi-professional photographer and know all the tips will help me as I learn everyday!

    The Acme Made bags are also very nice and versatile. I personally like the Montgomery Street Backpack because I need space for multiple lenses. I also appreciate the extra space for lunch or rain gear depending on what I need that day. I enjoy spending all day taking photographs at various events and having space for necessities besides my camera is a huge plus!

    Congratulations!!! This is a fantastic achievement in a very competitive market. I enjoy reading all the articles on your website, there is always something new we can learn.
    I just got back from my two week trekking in Nepal and my camera bag pack that I had with me all the time had a very hard time and hardly survived the daily treatment. So the new bag pack would be a definite help, especially considering my next adventure – two week trekking in Tasmania. It seems that the Montgomery Street Backpack could be a perfect choice.
    Congratulations again, Katherine

    I think what is great about all the bags is that it has functionality in mind. To be a photographer, is not just about taking photographs but to be multifaceted. There is so much you can do with the bag! I mean, it can be when you are on photographer mode and when you are on school/work/fun mode. As much as there is versatility to a photographer, there is versatility to the bag. It definitely reflects a person's character. It captures a life of a photographer/photodocumenter/photojournalist very well.

    The bags that's just the creme of the crop are the courier and the backpack. :)

    And congratulations on having the million subscribers!

  • Milton L Miller

    November 16, 2012 10:16 am

    Congratulations DPS for the 1 million subscribers, and thanks for all the great tips thru the years.

    The bag I like most is the courier bag in the green color. I have a backpack, but I really would like something smaller and lighter. The courier bag would allow me to quickly access my equipment while on the move, without taking the bag off my shoulder. I don't always want to carry all my equipment, just a few pieces, and the courier would be perfect for me. I like carrying my camera with me to capture special moments, and their are times when I come across events or shots, and I just need to pull my camera before the moments escapes me. Plus, I like the fact that it doesn't look like a camera bag!!

    Would really love to have it :-)

    I love the Courier...I like the size of it verses the backpack. BUT, I'd be very happy to win one of the four!! Congrats!

  • Judy

    November 16, 2012 10:06 am

    I really like the Courier....the size is smaller and fits me better than the backpack and I like the sling strap. I'd just be happy to win any one of them though! Congrats on your million subscribers and for all the help and good you do! I love your newsletter.

    I'm a novice photographer really enjoying learning the basics and the Montgomery Street Backpack looks perfect for me as I travel frequently to cities around the world. Thanks dPS!

  • Selly Nia

    November 16, 2012 09:56 am

    Wow the backpack looks awesome! It fits laptop, camera and lens, and some more space for other small things. That would definitely solve the problem of going to school with lots of different bags, each to carry different things. Anyway, Congratulations on the 1million subscribers! Stay awesome! :D

    Congrats on the million subscribers !!! I would love the Montgomery Courier as I am always standing on fields and a liightweight bag I could put my second body and lens in for easy access would be perfect :)

    Congratulations..I'm a newER follower to this site and I'm no professional by any means, but my <3 for photography is wide and deep! I own a Canon Powershot SX 20 IS and I love it! I'm looking into getting a more professional camera soon!

    I love the Montgomery Street Courier! Why, you ask? Well I love that it looks small but it expands to keep your camera and accessories in it-heck, even personal accessories will fit in it! That's just what I need! =) It's also has a side panel for easy access to your camera...which will come in very handy!

    Thanks for the opportunity and congrats again!! =) Loving the tips and photo challenges! I participate in other photo challenges on Wordpress...my blog is www.adayinthelifeofjennay.wordpress.com if you would like to take a look!

    Hi! I would love to have the Montgomery Street Backpack Collection. It carries everything a photographer needs including macbook for uploading pictures. I must say perfect design for a camera bag.

  • Igor Farago

    November 16, 2012 09:42 am

    The Montgomery Street Backpack looks right for me. It's the only one big enough to carry what I want to have with me.

    (I apologize if its double post. It just doesn't show up and I'm unsure if it passed at all. And yeah, "I'm posting too quickly" from my first try.)

  • Linda Tate

    November 16, 2012 09:42 am

    Congratulations! I find your site very inspiring. I like the Courier, big enough for all my gear & great shape for slinging, I think it would be very versatile, love the side access.

  • Mike Mospan

    November 16, 2012 09:40 am

    I've always had a preference for backpacks and after looking at the collection I'd have to go with the backpack. It looks simple and functional. I sometimes tend to just sling them over one shoulder for convenience.

    Congrats on hitting 1 million! This site is great.
    I like the Montgomery Street Courier the best because it's big enough to hold my cameras but not so bulky that I would feel weighed down by everything I was carrying.

  • Sharon

    I've seen the Montgomery collections and I love them all, though the backpack stands out. Each one has its own purpose, and I like the different colors. I just hope that its available in Philippines.

    Congratulations on reaching 1 million subscribers! Milestone indeed!.

    I would choose the Montgomery Street Backpack. It has room to hold my present gear, with room to grow. I especially like the Side panel which means fewer missed opportunities. I also like that I can store the camera with the lens on (my current pack is too small for that). It looks pretty awesome too. It's not an obvious camera bag.

  • John

    November 16, 2012 09:19 am

    Wow! It is unbelievable that you have accomplished this growth in such a short time. You thanked us but I know for sure that there has been rough and tough times pounding on you. But it’s so important that you did not quit and now as many achievers have experience over and over to appreciate the hardship and the god-given courage to continue.

    Congrats and keep up with great job!!

    BTW, I forgot to enter my choice, which is Montgomery Street Kit Bag. I hope I will not be disqualified by posting a corrected message.

    I love the idea of having all my tools together - camera, lens, tripod, manuals and laptop. Hence, I love the Montgomery Street Backpack - the way its styled is an added bonus, makes it one of the coolest camera bags around!

  • Tanya

    November 16, 2012 09:13 am

    I'm so glad I found this site recently. I've already had the chance to learn so many new things. Congratulations on having so many subscribers! I absolutely love the Montgomery Street Backpack. I have an 18 month old and one on the way. I strictly photograph for personal enjoyment. The Backpack would be out of the way when transporting my equipment and carrying a child (or two). These bags are so stylish and look very roomy!

  • Jess

    November 16, 2012 08:57 am

    Woohooo!!! Congrats on the 1 M subscribers!! Thats awesome!!!! I would love to win the courier bag... as I prefer having my bag to the side on my hip for comfort when shooting... and with this bag I could be comfy AND stylish!! :)

  • vanessa patterson

    November 16, 2012 08:50 am

    I really like the backpack version. I travel a lot and take many scenic & architectural photos. I find the back pack is versatile and you are able to bring more lens' and accessories with you than the smaller bags. This allows you to capture what you want at just the right time. It's easy to carry, keeps your hands free to manouever the camera the way you wish to and you dont need to bring any purses or other bags with you for the day. It also evenly distributes the weight so people with back injuries, like myself can bring more and not suffer when doing so. I am in desperate need of a backpack on my many journeys and this bag and style is perfect.

  • Steven Mitchell

    November 16, 2012 08:50 am

    Congratulations on such a great achievement! It must feel wonderful to watch something you started so long ago grow into what it is today.
    I would have to agree with numerous others here that the backpack would be stupendous to take out on photo shoots! It is more comfortable to wear than a single strap bag, and looks like it has the room for camera gear plus a notebook for notes on the shots you take!

  • Lou Kibby

    November 16, 2012 08:45 am

    Congratulations Guys. You have helped me so much with my photography. :)

  • stephanie armstrong

    November 16, 2012 08:28 am

    First thing Congrats to you well done to the 1 million subscribers, its very hard to say which is my favorite bag they are all very nice but if I had to choose it would be the Backpack I love the look of these bags also taking photos of wild life etc so a backpack would be ideal.

  • HUBERT BENJAMIN

    November 16, 2012 08:26 am

  • Graham Collie

    November 16, 2012 08:24 am

    Congrats on your subscriber numbers! That's AWESOME! I find your site to be helpful as I am a "newbie" to photography. Keep up the good work! As far as the camera bag that I would be ECSTATIC to win: I love the kit bag. It's perfect for grab and go jaunts! I hope I win it!!! Thank you!!!

  • David

    November 16, 2012 08:20 am

    Congratulations!!
    I am interested in the Montgomery Street Courier bag.
    I travel to Europe (specifically Amsterdam and Ukraine) quite often. I don't like to "advertise" that I'm carrying camera equipment with a conventional camera bag. I prefer to blend in with the crowd. Carrying a courier bag allows me to walk around unnoticed, maintaining quick access to my equipment and drastically reducing the chances of theft.

  • Casey

    November 16, 2012 08:17 am

    I LOVE the Montgomery Street Backpack. I need a camera bag that will hold my laptop & this bag is perfect!

  • Robert

    November 16, 2012 08:17 am

    I like the Montgomery Street Backpack design because I tend to carry a lot of stuff! I also like to have quick assess to lenses and gadgets while I'm shooting, and the side pockets seem to be a good solution for that.

  • Ilija

    November 16, 2012 08:15 am

    Congratulations!!! Thank you for all your work. For me, being novice, it is so helpful to read tips and advises which you are publishing. I have just acquired Panasonic Lumix FZ200 and Montgomery Street Kit Bag would come really useful to carry camera, charger and additional kit in it.
    Best regards!

  • Kiry

    November 16, 2012 08:05 am

    Darren and Crew, Thanks for a wonderful site! I have learned heaps from you. I think the Kit bag would be perfect for me - I could throw it in my purse for those times I don't want to drag around a big camera bag. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  • Sandy powers

    November 16, 2012 08:01 am

    I have learned a lot form the great contents of this website.

    I'd love to have the Montgomery Street Courier bag. It's sleek and will be perfect companion during my day trips, enough to carry my Canon 60D and few accessories and not making me feel bulky and also just enough to carry the essentials.

    Hope to get this gift from Australia here in Canada :)

  • Leanne

    November 16, 2012 07:53 am

    Congrats ....I look forward to your emailsall the time.

    OMG.... My fav has to be the Street !!!! Its just the right size, it doesn't look like a camera bag so I would feel a bit safer walking around the city at night, without feeling like a target with alot of expensive easy to sell photography equipment. The BEST feature for me is its tall and can stand a good sized bottle of water upright in it...wooohooo no more leaks. Oh and I just love the easy access to my camera, how awesome is that. All my dreams come true.

  • george

    November 16, 2012 07:51 am

    Backpack. This exactly what i want, i have been looking at local bags in Johannesburg but can not find one exactly to my liking. This bag with the side entrance is perfect. The fact that i can put my notebook in as well is a real bonus.

    Darren,
    Congratulations on reaching the one million subscriber point--incredible achievement!

    I love all of the Montgomery Street camera bags, but would prefer to have the Courier bag to hold iPad, camera, lens, phone, and other items. The fashionable appearance is a real plus--looks so much more professional than my current one shoulder backpack (which kinda looks like I am going on a picnic hike :-) )

    Best wishes on your continued success as your website and blog grow and grow as more of we photographers benefit from your great tips and offers for a wide variety of quality equipment.
    Dave

    Site always has good information. The Montgomery Back pack looks most useful. large enough for carrying lots but can be condensed if not as much space is needed

  • Tash

    November 16, 2012 07:22 am

    Congratulations on reaching a million subscribers! When my year 10 photography teacher told me about this site, I fell in love with all the easy to read tutorials, and the projects are amazing!

    As much as the likelyhood of me recieving one is, I would absolutely adore the Mongomorey Street Backpack. Going into year 12 next year, I have been looking for a new camera bag other than my current, ridiculously chunky one. This would be fantastic because I could use it for my school laptop as well as my camera, and save having to lug two bags to school on photography days.

    Thanks for the opportunity anyway, and keep up the good work, this is by far the best photography website I have been on! :)

  • Maryann Utrata

    November 16, 2012 07:20 am

    Thanks again for your great website.

Whenever I travel I am always at a loss as to what to do with my camera. I want to take my photography with me, but not at the expense of ruining my camera and accessories. I would love to walk up to TSA with this thing! No hassle, and I'd be looking good! Plus there's room for almost anything else I'd need. No fuss no muss, the way I like it....

  • Randy Shackleford

    November 16, 2012 06:57 am

  • Nathan Mork

    November 16, 2012 06:56 am

    Montgomery Street Backpack:

    side access to the camera for ease of use. Nothing worse than having to dig through stuff to get to your camera.
    Enough space to hold important items, waterbottle, computer, gorillapod, a very functional bag.

    I need a new camera bag!

Keep up the good work and you will soon hit the 2 Million mark!!!

    I like both, the backpack and the street courier, but if I had to make a choice I think I would settle for the street courier. All of the bags are very nice and I would probably be happy with any of them.

    As for the bags, they are very nice. My favorite might be the street kit bag as I travel a lot and it could be used on its own, or to store my camera in another bag when on the go and not snapping pics. The courier would be my other favorite as it might be the most versatile. Thanks for sharing your photography tips and equipment recommendations! All the best !

    Congratulations on 1 Million Members. Thank you SO much for this site, I have learned so much from everyone involved here and it has helped me take my hobby of Nature and Wildlife Photography to starting my own photography business and booking my very 1st portrait sessions just this coming week. I cannot thank you enough - When I did a google search for a random question that I had about filters and came across your site, I had no idea, at the time, what a gem I had found in all of you! THANK YOU! And thank AMCE for helping you to thank your members as well. The Street Backpack would be the most helpful for me, as I get a lot of my shots while rock climbing, cable hiking, crossing swinging bridges, visiting the local elk population, camping or tromping through the wilderness on my random adventures. :)

    I would love to win the Montgomery Street Kit Bag. It is the perfect size to keep on me most of the time, I do a lot of walking and need a bag that looks great and will fit over my shoulder without weighting too much.

    Congrats on such a successful blog and thank you for all the great information.

  • Tim

    November 16, 2012 06:03 am

    Congrats! This is a wonderful site, positive, forward-looking, and inclusive of every style and mode of thought in photography. Long may it (continue to) run.

    I'm a fan of the Courier bag: enough to bring the essentials, not so clunky that it's intimidating. The whole line is pretty sweet!

    Tim.

    Congratulations! It has to be so satisfying to have this website to fruition!

    My favorite of those bags has to be the Montgomery Street Collection Backpack. The room is amazing. Being a landscape photographer I am on the road a good deal of the time. This case would prove amazing!

    Keep up the great work, I learn so much from you!

    Great accomplishment - 1 MEEEELLION subscribers. I for one am very happy to have found the web site and newsletter.

    I think the Street Courier bag us the one I would choose. I always seem to have a Pad or Laptop with me in addition to my DSLR and an extra lens or 2. I prefer the courier style to the back pack for ease of access.

    Thanks - Lance Stevens

    I like the backpak version, I find a backpack style bag more comfortable and easier on my back than a courier style bag. Thanks for this giveaway.

    November 16, 2012 05:46 am

    I like the Montgomery Street Backpack. Looks like it has a lot more room than the smaller bag I have now.

  • Woodsliv

    November 16, 2012 05:46 am

    I like the backpack style, I am fairly new to digital photography and seem to carry more stuff then I need. I am in the learning process so always trying stuff with gadgets suggested on different sites.

  • Rachel

    November 16, 2012 05:45 am

    The Montgomery Street Kit Bag would be a perfect supplement to my camera backpack, which is a little large to carry at times. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the posts and instruction that I gain from this site and hope it continues for another 1 million fans!

  • Brianna Williams

    November 16, 2012 05:45 am

    Montgomery Street Courier is my favorite. I am a fan of satchel bags and think that the courier will help me add a fashion sense to my trade of choice.

  • Travis

    November 16, 2012 05:44 am

    Congrats! Love ACME bags! The Street Courier would be my pick-perfect for NYC street photography!

    Absolutely amazing milestone..congratulations dPS!

    I would want the Montgomery Courier bag please. It's perfect for street photography, anywhere in the world.

    November 16, 2012 05:36 am

    Congrats on this incredible Milestone, keep the good info flow coming, there is so much great stuff in all your newsletters. If i were to take one of those bags i would take the Montgomery Street Kit Bag since i already have a backback that would be nice to just carry my camera around without all the extra weight

  • Sonja Maddox

    November 16, 2012 05:27 am

    I would LOVE to win the The Montgomery Street Backpack. I have Lowepro backpack right now, and it's really bulky and heavy. I feel like I'm going out for a wildnerness survival hike when I wear it. The Montgomery Street Backpack looks much more user friendly for outings where I want to bring more than one lens.
    Thanks DPS and congratulations on the 1,000,000 subscribers. It's no surprise to me........ You guys are awesome. :)

  • Crystal Kepple

    November 16, 2012 05:24 am

    I would love to have the Montgomery Courier case. It's a gorgeous design, very convenient access. My DSLR and I will be so fancy!

  • Melissa Bernal

    November 16, 2012 05:22 am

    Congrats DPS!!!! I'm loving the Montgomery Street Courier, always being on the go I like to travel light. The Montgomery Street Courier would be just what I'm looking for to not weigh me down. Thanks so much for all the awesome photo advice, keep up the great work!

  • Oan de Waal

    November 16, 2012 05:18 am

    WOW! 1 Million. Congratulations!
    I am a student at a university in South Africa. I have recently won the universities' photographic competition.

    I would love a great bag to go with the camera that I recently got. But also to fit my laptop (13" MacBook) to save my photo's to iPhoto if I were to go somewhere special. One does need a laptop- and camera bag if you know you are going to the deserts or on a safari for a photo-shoot vacation. So obviously I will say the Montgomery street Backpack is a clear winner! It is unthinkably stylish, elegant, practical and spacious. In fact, it does remind me of something that should be showcased next to the Crown Jewels!

    So compliments to the designers of this exquisite item. It really is exceptional.

    Regards

    I'd love the Montgomery Street Backpack, an ergonomic way of carrying a DSLR & lenses + other paraphenalia. It's even stylish to boot :-)

  • Amy Greener

    November 16, 2012 05:16 am

    Thanks to Acme for the great giveway and congratulations DPS for 1 million subscribers. Your content speaks for your success! I love both the backpack and the courier but since I've never owned a backpack, I think it would be the better choice. The green is awesome.

  • Julie Lee

    Would live the Montgomery Street Kit Bag to tote around a few extra lenses and speedlight.

  • Cindi Fortmann

    November 16, 2012 05:14 am

    Congratulations! Love reading all of the tips and trying out the exercise. Hard choice on the bag....courier or backpack! I guess I would have to say the backpack.

  • Julie Lee

    November 16, 2012 05:12 am

    Would live the Market Street Kit Bag to tote around a few extra lenses and speedlight.

  • Sarah Condon

    November 16, 2012 05:12 am

    Congratulations on your success. I really like this collection of bags. BUt my favourite of all is the backpack. It would be so handy. Space for a laptop and a camera and a small tripod or extra lenses - genius.

  • Wade

    November 16, 2012 05:12 am

    1 million - wow! I'm most interested in the 'Montgomery Street Backpack'. With a recent telephoto lens purchase, I've outgrown my current camera bag. I hadn't heard of this company - very stylish and functional-looking bags.

  • Patrick Hill

    November 16, 2012 05:11 am

    Congrats on the success considering the age of the site, and to echo heather it has helped me considerably as well. I would definitely like the opportunity to receive the Union Messenger bag. Wish you all the best for the future!!

  • Rath

    I would love to have the Street Kit - it is compact and will fit a full DSLR nicely. Thanks for the offer, DPS!

  • Nikhil Anand

    I would choose the Montgomery Street Backpack because it would be my all-in-one, on-the-go, camera/laptop/accessories bag. It looks really stylish as well.

  • Kristin

    November 16, 2012 05:05 am

    Love the Courier! It's roomy enough for the essentials and stylish enough that I don't feel like I'm carrying around a backpack. Congrats on 1 million subscribers- thanks for celebrating with us!

  • Diana

    November 16, 2012 05:04 am

    I love the sleek look of these bags and would like to win the Montgomery Street Courier.

  • Dan M

    November 16, 2012 05:03 am

    I'm going to have to go with the Montgomery Street Backpack: subtle styling doesn't shout "hey, I've got a 24-70 f/2.8L and other expensive lenses and my MacBook Air in here" like my LowePro pack. Plus room for a rain jacket, snack, flash and other accessories, definitely a great way to go.

  • Lori Anne Parker-Danley

    November 16, 2012 05:02 am

    The courier bag. Because it is great.

  • Margaret

  • Lori Anne Parker-Danley

    November 16, 2012 05:01 am

    I love the courier bag -- it's nice and sleek, manages to have a slim/close-to-the-body profile, while still offering enough room for a camera, lenses, and even an iPad! And it also doesn't scream "I am a camera bag; grab me for my cargo," which is always a plus when wandering through cemeteries where the dead rise and clamor for cameras. ;)

  • Michael Edwards

    November 16, 2012 04:59 am

    I already own a backpack so the courier bag would work best for me. I am getting into street photography so that is another reason.

  • Nithin

    November 16, 2012 04:58 am

    Oooh. Congratulations on 1million subscribers dPS! I would love to choose Montgomery Street Backpack. Not because it is stylish. But my gears would be protected. This would fit my iPhone 4s, iPad 2, Laptop and some of my artist kits. I use my iPhone 4s to shot events in my life. Sometimes, I miss shots. Because I don't have kits or bags to put my cams. So they are left out. At home. And yea. Keep on posting dPS! I love your tips on Photography. This site is soo AWESOME. Digital Photography School, is the best. By the way, I'm 12 years old. So. I'm an iPhoneographer kiddo. I'm too a crazy photographer. I wish I would win this. Aaand. Once again, CONGRATS!

    Congrats for the milion! i'm a newbie here so i'm glad to be part of such a wide group of Photo lovers.
    For the acme made gears, i am split between the backpack and the street courier, because they both have great carrying capacity and same style, maybe i'd be more a street courier guy, i find it more pratical than the backpack.

  • Ashley

    November 16, 2012 04:56 am

    Congratulations on this milestone! I really enjoy your weekly email feeds, and while I say I'm going to take on a challenge assignment, I haven't had time. But the tips sure have helped with my photo shoots!!

    I've been carrying the same Canon photo bag for 10 years and I think the Courier bag is awesome! I love how flexible it is in terms of what you can carry, the extra pockets for a wallet and phone (who wants to tote a purse and a camera bag?) and the multi-modal access to the camera. I can use it day-to-day on shoots, but also traveling to carry camera, water, and a snack.

  • Margaret

    November 16, 2012 04:56 am

  • Tony Demaio

    November 16, 2012 04:52 am

    Just looked over Montegomery Bags. Great ideas. I especially liked the backpack bag: The unique was of storing a camera with lens on the side of the bag is a very useful idea. I do a lot of day hiking and volunteer work in Yosemite N.P. and this bag would really come in handy.

  • Wm. Tillis

    November 16, 2012 04:52 am

    Sharp color and design
    Thoughtful organization
    Insulated
    Looks rich
    I am referring to the street kit bag by Montgomery
    I am looking forward to the challenge of the next four years
    ( With this case, I will look like I know what I am doing)

I know it would impress my friends. Thanks and continued success.

  • Rhonda Goodin

    November 16, 2012 04:46 am

    I like the Montgomery Street Courier bag. It is fashionable and roomy enough to take all of my personal items without having to carry extra bags, plus it has quick access to my camera for the surprises that pop up from time to time.

  • Lindsay F

    November 16, 2012 04:41 am

    I really like the Street Courier bag. Its compact enough that it isn't bulky but there's room for real storage! It would be great to have some real protection for my camera - ya know, instead of toting it around in my padding-free purse! =O

  • Heather

    November 16, 2012 04:40 am

    Congrats!! I'm so glad I stumbled across this site about a year ago- it's definately improoved my photography!
    I would have to go with the Courier cause it would keep everything easily acessible, yet carry more than just my gear. Looks great too!

  • Lucy

    November 16, 2012 04:40 am

    Congrats on 1M !!! You are definitely doing something RIGHT !!!
    By the way, can you track who is the lucky 1M subscriber? I would say this person has to be rewarded independently.
    As for Montgomery collection: I like a Silver Backpack for the spaciousness but if I am about to buy a bag now - I would go for a Silver Street Courier (already have a backpack and am looking for something stylish and not too big to carry around when going out for a dinner or drinks and want to have my camera, and other staff, with me).

  • Bruce Guenter

    November 16, 2012 04:38 am

    I like the Montgomery Street Courier, though the features of the backpack look interesting. I like the versatility and ease of access of courier bags in general

  • Terri

    November 16, 2012 04:38 am

    Wow! This is cool, I just joined your site (maybe I am the millionth person!) as I bought a Sony A77 and I am looking for tips on how to get the best out of my camera. I have recently joined my husband's video production company and he would like for me to take production stills for the company.

    The camera bag that would be best for me would be the backpack. This would leave my hands free for the camera and my bag secured to me. It is also better for spine health! I really enjoy the idea of side access and that I can carry my notebook with me to download to. The idea of smaller carry areas for some personal items is great, as well.

    Thank you for your site and dedication, there is so much valuable info here :)

  • Andrea

    November 16, 2012 04:37 am

    November 16, 2012 04:36 am

    Yay! What a great accomplishment. I'm glad I've been a subscriber for quite some time. This is one of my fav go-to sites. As for the bags, I like the Montgomery Street Backpack. It's not as large as other backpack cases I've come across, has style (love the color!), and being able to expand and fold compartments is an added bonus.

  • April B.

    November 16, 2012 04:36 am

    Yay congrats, you guys are so awesome!! I know so many photographers that are blessed by what you do too so thank you! I love them all and honestly would be SO grateful with ANY! :D IF I had to pick a favorite it would be the Montgomery Street Courier. I'd love to have something convenient to take with me while on vacation with my family and be able to capture our memories together! Plus it'd be great for any photo gig!

  • Conner McGuire

    November 16, 2012 04:36 am

    The Montogmery Street Courier would be perfect for my urban renewal photojournalism projects at school! Congrats on turning your hobby into a bread winner, I know most of us hope to reach the same goal one day.

  • Tabetha Hatfield

    November 16, 2012 04:35 am

    Congratulation on your success! I have really enjoyed your website; as it has been very helpful to me in every photography aspect. Thank you for sharing the opportunity in a chance to receive one of The Montgomery photo bags. If chosen to receive one I would benefit from the street courier bag as I like to carry all my photography supplies with me; it is very versatile and stylish. Thank you again and Congrats!

  • ArturoMM

    November 16, 2012 04:34 am

    Montgomery street case

    It's very beautiful, in part because the band decoration below is most proportional to the height, in fact, I think they should make this band higher in the other bigger bags.

    Also I already have a big bag and this is perfect as an alternative to go lighter.

  • Dan Hurst

    November 16, 2012 04:34 am

    I like the courier, cos it looks the most versatile for shop lifting

  • Scotsgirl

    The Montgomery Street Courier is the bag for me! Plenty room for essentials, phone, wallet etc, and iPad [hoping for one for my Christmas!]. Also fast, easy access to my camera. I am also impressed with the safety aspect as it doesn't shout 'expensive camera kit here!!'

  • Vinay

    November 16, 2012 04:31 am

    The Montgomery Street Courier is best suited for me. I like to carry my camera, a bottle of water and a tripod on my photo-shoots. It has a minimalist design, one that would not attract any attention to you while on the move. Plus, it is coming from DPS, my photography guide and teacher!!

  • Mike Spring

    November 16, 2012 04:30 am

    The montogomery street courier would be for me. I can carry my camera and a few other necessities, makes a great carry-on - but not too big for every day.
    Thanks for some great tips!

  • Scotsgirl

    November 16, 2012 04:29 am

  • David Harding

    November 16, 2012 04:28 am

    I like the Montgomery Street backpack most, in grey. It oozes understaded class, and looks as though it can take a sizeable amount of gear, including a handy laptop pocket. Looks like it is nicely padded too, so should keep my precious camera gear safe from accidental knocks and bangs.

  • Crystal P.

    November 16, 2012 04:28 am

    Congratulations dPS! I look forward to learning every week from your newsletter. I would love the Montgomery Street Courier because it's stylish, not too bulky yet big enough for a camera, lens and accessories!

  • Suzi

    November 16, 2012 04:26 am

    I like the back pack, fits long lenses and laptop, but very thin, and balanced for easy travel.

  • Morgan and Tracy

    November 16, 2012 04:23 am

    Definitely the Montgomery Street Courier. It has plenty of room for the photographer on the go! My daughter (13) just purchased a DSLR with money she earned herself and she is sooo proud. This bag would be a great to protect her new prized possession.

  • Ralph

    November 16, 2012 04:23 am

    the bag looks perfect for a camera bag where in it will fit the camera and other accessories. it is trendy as well as gives a very professional look. its the attitude that you carry when the bag is with you.

  • tami lanunziata

    November 16, 2012 04:23 am

    I would love the Montgomery Street Bag. I have a few lenses and the bag I have only allows me to randomly through them in the bad. I like to keep my gear with me all the time and that bag would allow me to take my lenses with me in the morning.
    It looks like a great bag!

    I love your site.! congratulations on the milestone

    Thanks so much for doing this. I get great tips from your emails and have become a better photographer because of them!!

  • Mike Spring

    November 16, 2012 04:22 am

    The Street courier looks like a brilliant bit of kit. On assignments or when teaching, i am always needing to lug a load of stuff around with me. Most camera cases are too small and rucksacks are not padded enopugh![img]

  • Jan Van Weele

    November 16, 2012 04:21 am

    Thanks for this opportunity. At my age the Kit Bag would be perfect. Extra lens would save revisits, while still keeping gear light enough and protected. Thanks

    Thanks!

  • Lathan

    November 16, 2012 04:21 am

    I think the Montgomery Street Backpack or Courier both look awesome! The quick access pocket on both of them is very cool too and I think something that I would use a lot. The grey/stainless look is nice, but I think I prefer the olive. Very stylish camera bags!

  • Bill Church

    November 16, 2012 04:21 am

    My choice would be the Montgomery Street Kit Bag. It has the ability to carry and organize everything I currently hang off my belt, as well as a travel tripod. Great look to blend in with the crowd when doing event shoots.

    It's hard to say which is my favorite. Each has potential in my life. I have other bags... I keep buying bags b/c I haven't found the perfect one yet. If I MUST choose, I choose the backpack. I like to go off into the woods or wander a "new" city for a morning or all day... the backpack gives me the option to carry all the equipment I might need or when I've "planned" better... to carry just the equipment I need plus a few personal items (w/o filling my pockets or having to wear a vest, too. I also find it much more comfortable to wear a pack on my back, than over my shoulder. My husband, who is often my "bag-man," agrees:)

    Congrats on the milestone...quite an accomplishment! I read your articles all of the time and as a novice hobbyist, find lots of great tips that improve my pics. I would LOVE the Courier bag because it's stylish, easily accessible and not too bulky. Thanx and hope I win!!

    I love the information I always gain from this blog. Thank you. My photos are steadily improving because of you.
    As to the bag, I would love the Montgomery Courier. My husband and I are planning a long overdue vacation to some "bucket list" places and I would love to have something to pack and carry my camera gear in!

    Thats Awesome............I believe the member count will grow 10 folds in a short time.........
    I like THE MONTGOMERY STREET BACKPACK

    Its looks simple backpack but yet holds a lotta stuff inside. I need not face the trouble of carrying another bag for my additional gadgets. every thing would fit in just fine.
    Further, the ease of access sideways makes it more reachable and comfortable. I just love it

    Ooooh, I love the Montgomery Street backpack! It looks really versatile and comfortable to wear. And it's also stylish. You don't often see that in camera gear bags.

    But more than the backpack, I love dPS! Thanks so much for all of your great information, lessons, and helpful tips on EVERYTHING.

    Congratulations on our 1,000,000th subscriber!

    Congrats on dPS' 1million! What an awesome accomplishment! Thanks to all your staff for their hard work, time, and expertise! I look forward to gaining more knowledge and experience with all your help!
    Thanks also to Acme Made for their generous donation! I checked out their products on their website and really loved the Montgomery Street Backpack. I've always used a shoulder bag, but as I am about to turn 60 years old next year, I need to balance my load on my back more for health reasons. I've been considering many backpacks, but this one is so unique and I love the style!

    Congrats, so glad you added the graph. Just shows what you can achieve with a little perseverance. The Montgomery Street Courier is my fav.

  • Barb Snyder

    November 16, 2012 04:12 am

    I love the Montgomery Street backpack. Now I'm using my old laptop backpack, my Nikon giveaway messenger bag, and a Rachel Ray tote gifted to me. In other words, I've never actually had a REAL camera bag. I love the side pocket for the camera, as I hike a lot with my camera and looping the camera around my neck gets tiring.

    I've been reading your blog for a couple years and have learned a great deal (I'm using a bokeh shot from last year for this year's Holiday cards.) You've worked very hard to achieve this success, congratulations.

  • Christina Blåhella

    November 16, 2012 04:12 am

    Congratulations!! This was really fun to read :) I love the Montgomery street backpack, because you have room for so much, at the same time as you can have it on your back. I know by experience that sholderbags is more for destroying your body, than to help you :)

  • Jordan Smith

    November 16, 2012 04:11 am

    The courier bag would be the bag of my choice because it is mobile and easy to carry around but still allows for an easy on easy off kind of design. It is also not big and bulky either which is ideal to the way of life I have.

  • Bethany

    November 16, 2012 04:11 am

    I absolutely love the room that the Montgomery Street Backpack would give me as I have run out of space with my canon carry case. Not only that, it would fit (in both looks & design) my busy trucking and farm lifestyle to a T! Thanks for the chance xo

  • Pam

    November 16, 2012 04:11 am

    Hello DPS!
    First THANK YOU for teaching me so much!
    You are invaluable.
    Congrats on the 1 million!

    I love the Montgomery Street Courier. So perfect for travel! My nex-7, iPad , and lenses would be good to go!
    I like the professional appearance as well. I bookmarked their website. Nicely done Montgomery!

  • Nang Lam

    November 16, 2012 04:11 am

    All of the bags are look stylish and comfortable. They each have their uses for different situations. I would choose the Montegomery Street Bag. It looks nice. Easily accessible and good for an on the go photographer.

  • Cathy

    November 16, 2012 04:10 am

    Glad to see how successful you have been! I would love the street courier (second largest bag). I could really use something that size to take only a portion of my equipment for small shoots or when I'm out on personal shooting missions. It would carry only the essentials and make my pack a lot lighter!

  • Josh

    November 16, 2012 04:10 am

    I'd love the Montgomery Street Backpack. I'm starting out working to build a portfolio and am in need of a better system of transporting my camera and some extras. Would love the Montgomery Street Backpack!

  • Alessandro Baffa

    November 16, 2012 04:09 am

    I'd choose absolutely the The Montgomery Street Backpack !! And use it in all my travels !! It seems so comfortable and robust, and overall it does not look like a camera pack! And that's important when traveling in difficult countries .. :)

  • Ben Y.

    November 16, 2012 04:07 am

    Congrats!! I would get the montgomery street backpack because well its for my father its big and spacious which my father carries a lot of lenses and his laptop so thos would suit him well its also great because it would be more organizable when he goes on hikes with his camera gear

  • Rinda

    November 16, 2012 04:06 am

  • Ashely

    November 16, 2012 04:05 am

    Congrats! I would have the most use for the Montgomery Street Bag. While sometimes it's not feesible for me to have my dSLR with me at all times, I do always have my smaller Sony with me, just in case. This would help it from not getting banged up in my handbag!

  • Tom Huxtable

    The Montgomery Street Kit Bag is a perfect for a day-trip photographer when you need to carry your camera a couple of hours always ready to shoot the interesting things in front of you.

    I like the street courier camera bag because it is designed to allow convenient access to all of my photo gear. I also like the fact that there is room for my phone, wallet and space for a snack.

    Thank you for your website. I visit it every time I need help with my skills.

    Congratulations on your success in developing your blog to be this big and beneficial to plenty of people.
    About Montgomery bags if I were given a choice I would choose Montgomery Street Backpack because it is very convenient to carry my camera body and a one or two pieces of lenses around. It sure will look elegant!

  • Dana Mitchell

    November 16, 2012 03:52 am

    I'm not surprised your blog made it to 1 MILLION followers! As a novice to DSLR photography, I've learned so much by following the blog. It's a great resource and I've also found the e-books to be very helpful and reasonably priced. The Montgomery Collection Courier bag is my favorite. If I won it, I'd be stylish as well as functional! Congratulations to dPS!

  • wallybear

    November 16, 2012 03:51 am

    Congrats on the huge accomplishment! 1 Million is no small feat.

    As far as the bags go, I think I'd opt for the backpack. I'm still a student, and carrying around a camera case along with a backpack is killing me. Multitasking is the best tasking!

  • Jenny Hattemer

    November 16, 2012 03:51 am

    Oh my goodness - What cool bags. Being a woman and photographer I have large purses and large camera bags and backpacks to hold my stuff. I would LOVE to stuff a lot of love into The Montgomery Street Backpack because of the quick and easy way to collapse or expand the internal space for my little studio on the go carrying my DSLR, portrait lens, flash, diffusers, little tripod, laptop, etc.

    Awesome products

  • Sarah

    November 16, 2012 03:43 am

  • Cathy

    November 16, 2012 03:42 am

    This is great. I'm new to photography and everything is so expensive.
    A free camera bag to hold all of my goodies would be fantastically appreciated more than words can describe.
    I've been looking for a great bag.

    November 16, 2012 03:36 am

    I really like the Montgomery Backpack - I recently took a photography class and saw someone with a backpack camera bag. It was so much eaiser for her to take pictures and lug the bag around than everyone else that was carrying on the shoulder. I would like the bag for that reason and also it looks so roomy.

  • CASI FANSLER

    November 16, 2012 03:35 am

    I love your site. Congrats. Photography is my hobby and I've learned so much. I just got a new camera and need a bigger bag for the lens I have. I love the Backpack. Seems very stylish with plenty of room and ease of access.

    Congratulations on the 1 millionth follower! Your site has been very helpful to my growth as a photographer and I share a lot of your lessons with my colleagues.

    I work as a newspaper reporter and would love to have the Montgomery Street Backpack. Attending civic meetings, community events, etc., I always need to have my DSLR, a flash, an extra lens or two, my laptop, iPhone, spare batteries and spare memory cards. Oh, and don't forget a paper and pen!

    This bag would allow me to combine everything into one sleek carry-all and permit me to get around so much more quickly and discreetly. Currently, I have a three-bag system to SAFELY carry all my gear, and I always feel like I'm moving in when I arrive to cover an event.

    Thanks for the offer, and again, congratulations!

  • Lynn Fixter

    I am fairly new to photography and love to read the article and the weekly challenge
    Keep it up!
    I like the back pack as it will carry more and it feels more comfortable to carry.
    Maybe with 1,000,000 subscribers you will have one million to choose from to receive this wonderful gift.

    November 16, 2012 03:32 am

    While a million subscribers is amazing, I am not surprised. There is so much fantastic information on this site and it is presented in a clear and understandable manner. I have recommended it to a couple friends and they feel the same way. It is our "how to" go to! Thank you so much for providing this service.
    As for the bags, I love the backpack. Being small of stature, over the shoulder bags tend to give my back fits. Since my passion is landscape photography, portability is a prime factor. This backpack has enough nooks and crannies for all of my goodies and would definitely see it's share of use.
    Thank you again for the service that you offer and for arranging for this give-away.

    I love the The Montgomery Street Backpack.

    Every time I go out on photo shoot, you will see me like a soldier carrying his guns, mags, radio etc which make me end up with a little loss of interest at the site while unloading them from my shoulders and what make me think always, 'oh god, be my assistant to carry all these things with care!'.

    I felt my assistant in The Montgomery Street Backpack :-)

    Great idea... great design... great help - personified!

    I LOVE the Montgomery Street Courier. Looks great, easy access and a killer grab and go bag.

  • Stephen

    November 16, 2012 03:10 am

    Hey Darren,

    I like the backpack. In general it holds more and I carry at least 3 lenses along with a body and flash. So, room is a premium. Also, kits can get heavy and the extra support the packs look like they offer would be welcome.

    Another good selling point is that it doesn't look like a "camera bag". For keeping your kit safe in an urban environment, this is important.

    I would love the Montgomery Street Courier shoulder bag. I prefer shoulder bags that allows me to easily reach for the accessories in the bag with one hand. The Montgomery Street Courier looks very stylish and comfortable.
    I wish you and your team much continued success!

    Congratulations on your one million! When I first got into photography and had a lot to learn, a friend of mine gave me your site information and told me to check it out. Wow....I learned everything I know from your site!!! So, thank you for giving me what I needed to become a successful photographer!
    My favourite bag is the Montgomery Street Backpack. For me, the bigger the better, as I like to travel with my 3 favourite lenses and always have filters and other accessories with me, I need something that is large enough to carry it all. Being a girl, I am also fashion minded and these bags are BEAUTIFUL! I love the grey colour, as it'll go with pretty much anything I wear and it doesn't look like a typical camera bag. I can walk freely with the bag and not be targeted with carrying camera gear. I love the side pouch for easy access to my camera. Boy, I do love the style of this bag!!!!

    I like the Montgomery Street Backpack because I travel a lot and a backpack is more comfortable for my back.

    Congrats on the milestone. I think the perfect one for me will be the Montgomery Street Kit Bag. Just right for the times you want some of your gear with you but don't want to haul around to much. The construction of it seems tough enough to hold up and it also is soft enough on the inside to take good care of our investments. Thats it, thats the one for me. Thanks for the chance to have one.

    Put me down for a Montgomery Street Backpack please!! I have a generic camera packpack ... a Swiss Army thing but it only has a single sling and always falls off my shoulder. Too small to boot..

    Congrats to DPS on 1meg subscribers. Great info..great resource..

    The Montgomery Street Kit Bag is the perfect bag for me. Those times wher you don't want to carry a bunch of things but do want to make sure you always have your camera and some gear with you. That seems like the perfect solution. Also like the soft contruction that keeps gear from getting damaged. Thanks for the chance to get one. Congrats on the milestone.

  • Laura

    Congratulation for 1 million subscribers!!! That's a *huge* achievement :)

    Thank you for this opportunity!

  • Lachlan Sear

    November 15, 2012 07:54 pm

    The street kit bag is fantastic- protection for your precious camera, but can be tucked into another bag when traveling!

    Good work on getting to 1 million subscribers!

  • Haiduc Anca

    November 15, 2012 07:47 pm

    Congrats for 1 mill subscriber!!! I am very happy for you. I personally like all the bags, they have a simple design but they are very practical. For me, I would like the Montgomery Street Kit Bag because it's perfect for just one camera and not a lot of kits, it's perfect when you don't need to take all your equipment and it protects your camera if you want to put it in a bigger bag

  • Erin Henderson

    November 15, 2012 07:45 pm

    Hi Darren! Congratulations! And a Huge thank you to you! Your site has been instrumental in helping me develop my photography to the point that I was able to open my own company. I would love to grab one of the courier bags. I like the sleek look of it, and having a fully functioning shoulder strap is a great feature. My current bag does the job but the strap is fraying and I'm just waiting for the day when I throw it over my shoulder and it snaps :-S

  • Martha Rennaker

    November 15, 2012 07:04 pm

    I love this site. I read lots of posts all the time. I have a Nikon D3100 and I'm learning to use it.

    Its hard to choose just one bag but I like the courier bag for the over the shoulder strap. It would be not only more functional for me but also more comfortable. The backpack is a close second

    Thank you and congratulations!!

  • Julie Pulas

    November 15, 2012 06:58 pm

  • Cramer Imaging

    November 15, 2012 06:48 pm

    Hi,

    congratulations on this stupendous achievement. I'm just on the verge of beginning to write a blog around my work, and I'm wondering where (if at all!) it will go and what it will do !

    thanks for the bag offer- the one I really like is the montgomery street kit bag- I carry a small SLR with typically one lens ( and maybe a 50 mm prime), so this seems to be good !

    All the best, and looking forward to hearing about you getting to 2 million subscribers !

  • Sally W

    November 15, 2012 06:24 pm

    Congratulations on 1 million. And I’d love the Montgomery Street Backpack. Besides for my all of the traditional camera gear and my iPad I need to carry lots of props and squeaky todays to take pictures of animals.

  • Manuel

    November 15, 2012 06:04 pm

    Hi,
    Congrats DPS for the awesome, awesome achievement. Its just been 3-4 months that I came to know about this site from my friend and since then its been mine and my friends guide to photography and no wonder you hit such masses and surely hit many multiples of the current hit in the coming years.
    I have heard of Acme made bags and I have seen one with my friend. It really is handy and superbly user friendly. I did tried to locate a local store near my place (India) but did not find any and those I found did not reveal the quality I expected (hope those were duplicates). I like the Montgomery Street Backpack (hope that was with my friend) and cant help to say, this is a wonderful charity mission from Acme but the amount they are giving away is too meagre (only lucky 4 in 1 Million subscribers). but again its a competition and the one who deserves will win.
    Once again congrats for your achievement. All the credits for Darren Rowse and his superb team. HATS OFF!

  • inkid

    November 15, 2012 05:52 pm

    I really love to travel with Montgomery Street Courier as its stylish and yet protective! I would love to show it off to all my friend that have the old dull black color' camera bag.

    Cheers! :)

  • Lisa

    November 15, 2012 05:33 pm

    Congratulations guys! This site is a great resource. Thanks for giving your time to provide it for free :-)

    It's the Montgomery Street Backpack for me (in grey). If I'm taking enough equipment that I need a bag to carry it I prefer a backpack so I can have both hands free and the weight centered.

  • Craig

    November 15, 2012 05:31 pm

    The Street Courier would be most practical for me as a backpack tends to be rather small on my large frame. Congrats on one million subscribers - imagine how many photos have been inspired by the authors here on dPS.

    Best from Canada.

  • Shelby H.

I love the Montgomery Street Courier bag best and really hope that I am one of the winners as I don't have a camera bag yet. It looks like it would be a perfect bag for my camera and provide lots of protection for it also. I also like the side opening on this bag. Thank you for making this offer possible.

Although I haven't been brave enough to submit anything yet, my friends have been encouraging with their comments about some of my pictures and I have to thank dps for that. I really love the Courier bag best but any of them would be wonderful as I don't have a camera bag and have been using a regular backpack and always hope I've protected my camera enough inside it. Thank you for making this offer possible.

    My fave bag would be the Street Courier because it looks like an awesome travel companion with pockets for the most essential items. Fingers crossed!

  • Jesse

    November 15, 2012 04:24 pm

    I like the Montgomery Street Courier.
    I have large gear, so a larger bag is better. Also being able to fold the flap out or inside to be able to access things quickly while shooting is good.

  • Eva

    November 15, 2012 04:08 pm

    Congrats on 1 million! I'd love to win the Street Backpack, since for health reasons I need to use a backpack instead of messenger. I love how it's sleek and stylish for a backpack and would let me bring along my laptop when I need to.

  • Tammy Rhyno

    November 15, 2012 03:47 pm

    Hi, First off I have to say this a wonderful site. So much information to take in and utilize! I happened to stumble upon this site as a link from a photographers site who said she learned alot from here. So, I am hoping to do the same.
    My preference for a bag from the Montgomery Street Collection would be the kit bag. The reason being is because I like to go trudging through the woods and crawling on the ground for those great close up nature shots and, I think this bag would be best suited to that type of use. It is not so large and cumbersome to get in the way or so small everything would be a tight fit. I can sling it over my shoulders and take off to where ever the wind may blow and have everything I need!
    Congrats on 1 million subscribers..that is a huge accomplishment to be proud of!

  • steve woodie

    November 15, 2012 03:46 pm

    Congratulations on your success! It's not every day that someone gets to do their work at something they love. Your passion for the subject shows. I've been following DPS for a few years now, done some of the Weekend Challenges and some Weekly Assignments, but mostly I've read and learned more about a hobby I'm really enjoying. (And I got my first paying photography job a couple of months ago! I'm a pro! I keep telling myself that.) Keep it up, and here's to continued success and enjoyment.

    Oh, and the Montgomery Street Courier bag would be great!

As being photography enthusiast and amateur, it has helped a lot for my photography skills. It's only blog which if I need to tell my friends to subscribe and have been asking my friends to follow.

    Acme Made products are awesome. I like most of their products but if I need to choose one, would go for Montgomery Street Courier which is perfectly made to carry DSLR, additional lens, iPad and other accessories.

    Congrats on reaching one million - I'm not surprised, this is a great resource and I read it daily on my RSS reader via Netvibes. Always something interesting here.

    I did look at these Acme bags as my travels take me to places where I'd not want to display an obvious DSLR bag, but where I'd still want a usable, comfortable bag for my gear. Since weight is an issue for me, but where I still want to keep an extra lens handy, the courier bag is of most interest to me.

    Thanks for sponsoring this!

    I would like the Montgomery Street Backpack. My current, small bag is full and I need room for additional lenses etc plus those extra things that may save me carrying another bag.

    I love the side access and foldability.

    Look forward to much more reading.

    I'd go for the Montgomery Street Courier Backpack for the simple reason that it doesn't look like a camera bag but it still has enough space and access to my DSLR camera equipment as needed. The gray is neutral coloured enough to work with what ever I'm wearing - the fashionable aspect is just the icing on the cake.

    No doubt it has to be Montgomery Street Courier! It is stylish, it doesn't look like a camera bag but it fits dSLR. It won't attract unnecessary attention when travelling.

    I would live to win the back pack. I've been shooting a short time and have been looking for a backpack to hold the little bit of gear I have. I can't make up my mind on a bag, plus cost is always an issue. That Montgomery Street Backpack looks awesome. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

    Firstly, my hat is off to Acme Made for their generous donation!
    I checked out their website and really liked the Street Kit Bag. Perfect for those days when I only want to carry one or two lens while I'm out.

    Congrats on 1million! That's a huge accomplishment, evident by your hard work, time, and energy to making this site the success that it is!

    My favorite is the Montgomery Street Backpack! I am a hiker/backpacker and I take my camera everywhere. I have two packs but they are not comfortable and pull on my back and neck. I would love to try this pack! It seems to be versatile and easy to carry. Great design and colour.

  • Gustavo

  • Tim

    Definitely the Montgomery Street Backpack. I've been looking for a new backpack to use as an airplane carry-on for my camera, laptop and a few other essentials.

  • Keely Eakin

    November 15, 2012 10:40 am

    Montgomery Street Courier in green (or gray, if I win I wouldn't care if it was hot pink!). Because my one and only camera bag has just about called it quits. And because it would be so nice to be able to just whip it out and snap the picture rather than sling it off my back, unzip, pull it out....and miss the shot. The side access would make my life so much better! I always prefer that sort of sling-over-your-shoulder type style, and I would love to have this awesome bag to protect my Nikon! Thanks for all the tips and advice. I've never won anything before, but I could really use this (and love every minute of it)!

  • Jason

    November 15, 2012 10:35 am

    The Montgomery Street Backpack in grey would be a great addition to my very small(hopeful to grow) arsenal of gear. Congratulations on the 1 million glad to be a part of it.

  • Kevin

    November 15, 2012 10:31 am

    1 million subscribers... WOW... and well done.
    I'm always on the hunt for a good carry bag and the Montgomery Street Backpack is lighting up my tachometer. I have a single camera bag that barely fit's the camera and any extras have to be carried out into the field by hand, or left behind. The Street Backpack is a must have for those always faced with the daunting task of what to take and what to leave.

  • Katie Duncan

    November 15, 2012 10:29 am

    I love the Montgomery Street Courier! The bag is large enough to fit my camera and the few lenses I have without being a bulky as my now broken sling backpack. I have been looking to upgrade my bag for my Cannon and it would be great to have a bag that I could also keep a small notepad and cell phone in for day trips! :-) (Also, your website is absolutely splendid and I read it almost every day! Thank you for all of the brilliant tips and advice! Here's to another Million! )

    Montgomery Street Courier. My one and only camera bag has about called it quits....and it would be so nice to be able to grab my camera real quick rather than sling it off my shoulder, unzip, pull it out.....and miss the shot. The side access would make my life SO much better! I would love this awesome bag to protect my beautiful Nikon! Thanks so much for all the tips and advice!

    November 15, 2012 10:22 am

    My existing (room for just one camera) bag means carting equipment by hand, or more often than not leaving it behind to avoid the cumbersome burden of the niggly gear. Then there's a risk of damage by throwing it all into a back pack... The Street Backpack appears to be an all-in-one travel bag and if I can't win, I'll definitely try to buy one!

    I remember hearing about this site from a friend a few years back, and now I'm constantly on it.
    The blogs, tips, and tutorials are completely relevant to every photographer, no matter what style, motive, or equipment.

    The Montgomery Street Bag looks very useful and efficient- I always love bringing out extra equipment, like lenses or tripods or flashes, when I go out. The side pocket gives access to my camera, for that quick once-in-a-life-time shot that I feel I always miss :)

    Cheers!

  • Dennis Judd

    November 15, 2012 10:11 am

    I am very impressed with the Montgomery Street Backpack. It appears to be designed well, a pouch for my notebook computer, the side "quick access" to the camera, and most importantly, it seems very well padded -- a primary consideration to help protect thousands of dollars of equipment.

  • Jennifer Schlegel

    November 15, 2012 10:11 am

    Congrats! As an amateur with no real training, this site has been invaluable to me over the last few years. Keep it up!

    I'd love the Montgomery Street Backpack because it could handle being the only bag on me for day trips or day hikes and making it easier to keep my camera safe either from nature or being stolen (less to keep track of). I'd be happy with the courier for those reasons as well. It's a little bigger than my current bag, giving me room to take a few extra things and leave a separate bag behind.

  • Adrian

    Definately the Montgomery street courier. It looks sooo practical for overseas travel especially with luggage restrictions plus it would make a stylish manbag.

    I would love the Montgomery Street Courier in grey. So much storage space and I love that it can switch from camera use to use for other things. I also like that it doesn't necessarily look like a camera bag so it's less likely to be stolen.

  • Walt Winkowski

    November 15, 2012 09:39 am

    Thank you so much!

  • Teri

    November 15, 2012 06:52 am

    Oh, the backpack for certain.
    Why?
    1. I'm a sports photographer primarily, so courier bags don't work too well for me. However, I want to try to expand into street photography (I live near Auckland, which is a tourist hub, so I should blend in well enough) so my little Lowepro camera bag (obviously a camera bag) doesn't cut it. (Also, I can't carry it around when I am photographing my horse events, as it bashes against my hip and it only fits my telephoto zoom + rain cover, not my shorter lenses..)
    2. It's sleek! That grey is beautiful, though I know it's shared between the other cases.
    3. The ability to get things out the side is a great idea imo and would really help the easy access - though I worry it might not fit the 70-200mm (even though I only have the smallish 4L non IS..)

  • Teri

    November 15, 2012 06:48 am

    dPs is one of my absolute favourites, and one million of us can't be wrong! Designer bag or no, I'll be a regular forever...or as close to that as I can come. One of the things I've heard time and time again is that "the best camera you have is the one that's with you." It's been my challenge because my current bag is stuffed with a camera, lenses, flash, etc. Something neat and sweet like the Kit Bag would give me what I need to fill the gap between a big bag and a lonely camera. Here's hoping!

    Backpack hands down. I prefer backpacks for the even weight distribution and I'm a huge fan of side access. Looks like a fantastic size in terms of the amount of gear you can take with you too!

  • Krieger

    November 15, 2012 06:45 am

    I am currently looking for a backpack style camera bag, and the The Montgomery Street Backpack is exactly what I've been looking for. It's got the room I need without being needlessly bulky, and with it on my back I would have the weight more evenly distributed. It's a good thing for those times I need to bend back and twist to the side to get that picture of my daughter. I also like that it doesn't really look like a traditional camera bag, which makes theft less of a problem.

    Thanks again for having this contest, and I love the blog.

    Congratulations with one million subscribers! Let even more people get involved into reading news and articles from this site!
    As for the bag, I would really like that awesome Montgomery Street Backpack, and here are the reasons why:
    * I travel a lot, so I need to haver all the necessary lenses for my DSLR camera, tripod and flash to get good and worthy results, and Montgomery Street Backpack is perfect to fit all the stuff.
    * why a backpack - everyone knows that it's much easier and more comfortable to have your hands free when shooting, that's why having my photo equipment on my back will let me concentrate on shooting and not on where to put my things while shooting (as it always happens :) )
    * I really like that cute style, all those pockets and compartments - good way to organise documents and photo equipment, and it looks really stylish! :)
    * I've never won anything till now, and even though I understand that a lot of people want that bag as well, I do want to become the winner of this really great Montgomery Street Backpack, and so to become the winner in such a lotttery for the first time! I'm really exciting about this :)

    Congrats on your success once more!

    Congratulations to the first :-) milion!

    Thanks for doing the great job!

    I'd like to have the Montgomery Street Courier.

    * big enough for my DSLR, but not too big
    * no zip on top, thinking of rain,or snow.
    * quick side access
    * easier for public travelling than a backpack
    * it looks great,
    * I'd prefer the grey one as it seems to be able to replace the grey card for manual white balance :-)

    Cheers!

  • Lisa Campbell

    November 15, 2012 05:04 am

    I would have to say the backpack. I have another brand of backpack and it's nice to have the weight spread out BUT it's terribly inconvenient to get into and get your equipment out of. I love the ease of putting everything in and quickly getting it back out!

  • Juan Manuel

    November 15, 2012 05:04 am

    Great!
    Congratulations and Thanks D-P-S! for being there, for me, since 2009 when I started to look at photography as a serious hobby which became my passion. D-P-S has been my main source of references, advises, and ideas to evolve as photographer... still amateur, but more advanced and better equipped.

    Given my history as amateur photographer, the Montgomery Street Backpack will be the best option to support me while traveling and waking around with most of my gear...

    It all started back in 2009 when I selected a more advanced point-and-shot, a Canon SX20i Powershot, to keep better memories from my honeymoon in Mount Tremblant and Montreal in Canada during autumn... and while my wife got a bit jealous for my dedication to the camera, when coming back home and watching the pictures, she understood and supported my new hobbie...

    Some months later I decided to go for a more advanced gear, and selected a Sony Alpha 33 because of its SLT functionality which seemed very appropriate for me coming from a point and shoot...

    It helped me to become the Family´s favorite and official photographer... but it was not enough for me, and this hobby was well proven to become a lifetime passion, so I decided to take it more seriously and more professionally with a more standard, with wider accessories availability and very well recognized gear, still affordable... and I selected a Nikon D5100 which I have accessorized...

    What started back in 2009 with an advanced point-and-shoot, turned in to a D5100 with the included kit lense 18-55mm, plus a tripod, an IR remote controller, a prime 35mm f1.8, a 55-300mm zoom, cleaning kit, UV and polarized filters and most recently a speedlite SB-700.

    So, the Montgomery Street Backpack seems to be a very good choice to carry all (or most of) my gear for a simple walk around or for an airplane trip...

    Thanks!

    Montgomery Street Backpack would be my pick in gray. I just moved to San Francisco (so it's totally great that it acme made is based here). It's a beautiful city, I'd love a bag I could feel great about putting my camera in to take some photos around town.

    Congratulations! The The Montgomery Street Kit Bag looks like it would be perfect for being out and about with my micro four thirds setup.

    Congrats on the 1 million mark! And thanks for the great website. so much good instruction and information. for me i would like the montgomery street courier bag. i already have a larger backpack bag and would really like something a little smaller but that will still hold everything i need. thanks again.

    I am not surprised that you have reached 1 million subscribers, this site has been the key to renewing my interest in photography and has been the best site for learning to use my Canon T3. I am slowly building my lens inventory, I currently have two canon lenses 50mm 1.8 and 28mm 1.8 The ideal bag for me would be the Street Courier I am working my courage up to shoot some street scenes and have a strong interest in landscape shoots. I recently had the joy of shooting the milky way at the Dee Wright Observatory on Old McKenzie Hwy. I am currently attending school full time while unemployed during a transition in careers so the ability to get myself a good bag is limited. I will continue to sing your praises to anyone who will listen, looking forward to the 2 million subscriber give away.

    The street courier is exactly what I've been looking for. The backpack holds a lot, but you can't exactly get to your camera as quickly if you need it, like, NOW!

  • Elise Hines

    November 15, 2012 04:54 am

    I really like the Courier. It's got enough room for my 5DMkIII, one lens, and my speedlite, and sometimes that's all I need. It also has room for my Nexus 7 and various other smaller items. I think it's the perfect size for sightseeing and casual photo outings where I don't need more equipment. Sign me up!

  • Matthew Hamilton

    November 15, 2012 04:54 am

    The Montgomery street backpack is a clear choice for me. I currently have a messenger bag that really wears on my back and shoulders after a long day of shooting. The backpack looks to have all the space i would need, plus a style that doesn't tell everyone around I'm carrying a camera. Congratulations on your million subscribers, keep up the good work.

  • Ben

    November 15, 2012 04:49 am

    I have to agree with Reuben. The Courier Bag I like the best by far. He has plenty of room and it looks even more fabulous. Alternatively, the backpack was still good. However, I do not like the feel on my back.

  • Bonnie

    Montgomery Street Courier...prefect for traveling!

    I just found your site in the last couple months, and it is great! I enjoy the tips and tricks that even myself as a beginner hobbyist can take advantage of. Not always a big fan of the reviews though, because they make me jealous :) I would prefer the Backpack in the green color. Thanks, and congratulations on the milestone!

    I would like the Montgomery Street Kit bag, in green if there is a choice. It is the perfect size for what I typically carry around.

    Montgomery Street Courier
    I would love to win the Montgomery Street Courier, besides being very stylish, its form is ideal for a day out on the town. Also seems great to travel with when you don't want to pack everything you own.

  • Roly

    November 15, 2012 04:31 am

    Cool giveaway - congratulations on getting to your first million (you'll be at two before you know it!!). I would like to be in with a chance to win a Street Courier bag as it looks to be a great combination of size and 'pack-ability' whilst still being stylish.

  • Matt

    November 15, 2012 04:26 am

    I'd like the backpack because I end up doing a lot of hiking with my camera, and that looks like the best bet.

  • Reuben Cohn

    Congratulations on 1 million subscribers!!!

    I really like the Grey Montgomery Street Courier bag. It's a great size for my DSLR + lenses, and is very stylish and sleek. My current camera bag is ratty and not really big enough, so this designer bag would be an incredible upgrade!

    Here's hoping for 2 million subscribers next :)

  • Claire

    November 15, 2012 04:20 am

    I would love to own a Montgomery Street Courier. Even though I'm a young lady I always have backpacks or satchels. And the Courier is the perfect size for the gear I like to carry around on a daily basis with room for all of my personal necessities as well. Even better is the fact that it doesn't scream, "I have expensive gear." to everyone you pass, which is great for a traveller like me. It's super stylish and I love the colour combinations.

    I would love to have the Montgomery Street Backpack. I like having a compartment for the ipad, and I love the side compartment. It would be easy for my husband to carry around while I take pictures. He says he is my tour guide, and helps me find places to take interesting pictures.:-)

  • Luis Matias

    November 15, 2012 04:13 am

    My preference is for THE MONTGOMERY STREET COURIER
    The feature that immediately caught my attention was the look unobtrusive (discreet) making it possible to go unnoticed in the crowd.
    The size and shape also seems ideal for the city and public transport.
    The side access is an added advantage.
    Let me make one small suggestion for the product webpage: a short video demonstration of FlexFold System would show and highlight the advantages of it that are not easily perceptible in the images.
    The gray is my favorite color.
    THE MONTGOMERY STREET BACKPACK would be the best alternative in the THE MONTGOMERY STREET COURIER absence

  • Dana M

    November 15, 2012 04:10 am

    The street backpack. I've come to realize that when hauling gear around, a backpack (instead of a sling bag) is waaaay more comfortable

  • Soumya Dutta

    November 15, 2012 04:06 am

    Congrats guys!! I Love the Montgomery Street Courier because it is sleek, looks great and lets me carry quite a bit apart from a camera body and a lens!!

  • Jesse Abrams

    November 15, 2012 04:05 am

    Hello. 1 million subscribers is amazing. I read your website every day and I have learned so much! I am very excited about this giveaway. I really like all of the montgomery street collection bags, but my favorite is definitely the Montgomery Street Backpack.
    The reason is that it combines both a really nice looking bag with the protection of a high quality camera bag. Camera backpacks are usually too big and bulky and very compartmentalized so that you can't put any normal stuff like a sweater in them. And smaller normal backpacks lack the necessary protection. I find myself using my backpack with a separate camera bag inside of it. So the Montgomery Street Backpack would be perfect and the side access is also great...no more digging through other stuff to get to my camera. Hopefully I win! It would make my week!

  • Marina Tatarenko

    November 15, 2012 04:05 am

    Hey guys!
    Congratulations with one million subscribers! Let even more people get involved into reading news and articles from this site!
    As for the bag, I would really like that awesome Montgomery Street Backpack, and here are the reasons why:
    * I travel a lot, so I need to haver all the necessary lenses for my DSLR camera, tripod and flash to get good and worthy results, and Montgomery Street Backpack is perfect to fit all the stuff.
    * why a backpack - everyone knows that it's much easier and more comfortable to have your hands free when shooting, that's why having my photo equipment on my back will let me concentrate on shooting and not on where to put my things while shooting (as it always happens :) )
    * I really like that cute style, all those pockets and compartments - good way to organise documents and photo equipment, and it looks really stylish! :)
    * I've never won anything till now, and even though I understand that a lot of people want that bag as well, I do want to become the winner of this really great Montgomery Street Backpack, and so to become the winner in such a lotttery for the first time! I'm really exciting about this :)

  • Jessica

    November 15, 2012 04:03 am

    I am a beginner when it comes to photography but after receiving your emails I feel like a pro. Whenever I receive one of your emails and it has a suggestion for how to take photos I grap my camera and go outside to try them.

    It would be amazing to win the Montgomery street backpack!! I have a typical case that only fits the camera, but with the street backpack would allow me to bring my camera and different lenses and a tripod. I love the size it's perfect! Thanks so much :)

  • tashia potter

    I LOVE the idea for the carry back pack and would love to win it! We have so many accessories with our dslr camera we are taking 2 bags with us when we need our camera. The backpack would eliminate 2 bags and allow us just one!

    Love the site, and congrats on the 1,000,000!!!

    I'd have to go with the courier as my favorite. Love the style and town versatility.

    I know I'd use the Kit Bag the most though as I do alot of outdoor photography while hiking and climbing and The kit bag would fit into whatever backpack I needed for my adventure....

  • Mrs Teepot

    November 15, 2012 03:56 am

    I think I'd go for the street courier style; it's not too big but still big enough for extra lenses and stylish!

  • Jan Whiteley

    November 15, 2012 03:54 am

    I love the backpack. I have always liked taking as much as possible regarding camera gear, water, munchies, computer, etc. when going out shooting. But it is also versatile for carrying when not shooting, but packing other necessities such as going on a day hike or winery for concert and not taking all my gear. Plus with a backpack like this I will not lay it down and forget it! I will always have it on my back or attached to my chair. Another nice feature, is it does not look like a big bulky camera equpment bag, so if left in vehicle (which would probably never happen with me!) then it would be less attractive to thiefs!

  • AnnMarie T.

    November 15, 2012 03:53 am

    Congrats on 1 million!

    The Montgomery Street Courier fits my needs perfectly. I've often left the DSLR at home when taking day trips because I don't actually have a bag that would allow me to carry it with it's two lenses. The Courier bag would allow me to carry the DSLR again, as well as my tablet and any other day trip supplies one might need. The grey is my favorite; although, if a green ever becomes a reality...

  • Amy Timberlake

    November 15, 2012 03:51 am

    I'd love the street kit bag! I like the additional straps, and I'm looking for a smaller bag to take out on the streets of Chicago. I go on these really long walks with one lens and I never know what I'll encounter, and when I head onto the El (train) I don't like to have a camera hanging off my body (except when taking photos of trains -- which I love to do). Anyway, I'd love something light that can pack everything away, and be a bit incognito. Congratulations on all the subscribers. I've enjoyed the articles.

  • MIchael Wicks

    November 15, 2012 03:51 am

    I would like the street courier. for the following reasons:

    1) I have plenty of backpacks but no single on the go bag I like
    b) You can never have enough camera bags....

  • Angel Noel

    November 15, 2012 03:50 am

    The Montgomery Street Courier (in grey) is my favorite because you can keep a good eye on your bag while traveling and going around for a photowalk .

  • Jesse Katchen

    November 15, 2012 03:28 am

    Thanks for your time, Jesse

  • Mark Bakker

    November 15, 2012 03:27 am

    Congrats on the 1 million and thanks for getting together so much helpful information. As a guy being fairly new to (digital) photography, your site has helped me tremendously.

    Now for the bag, I'd like the Montgomery Street Backpack. I picked up photography right before the birth of my daughter and really enjoy making photos of her outside the house (parks, street, cafés, etc.). I typically carry some flashes and a secondary lens, as well supplies, so for me the bigger the bag, the better. Sling or messenger bags always seem to obstruct me when I want to pick her up, so a backpack would be the way to go. Plus, there aren't many bags out there that apart from being functional, also look decent and unconspicuous, so the Montgomery Street Backpack would be my choice.

  • Arjen Roos

    November 15, 2012 03:27 am

    Congratulations on the one million subscribers! Well done and please keep up the great work.

    I would like to win the Montgomery Street Courier, because I don't have a good camera bag at the moment. Because of that I just walk around with the camera in hand or put it in a regular bagpack.
    The Steet Courier would be the perfect size for me. Great design by the way.
    Thanks.

  • KaeleyAnne

    November 15, 2012 03:25 am

    The Backpack is the best option for me. It would allow me to carry my camera plus some extra stuff, particularly baby items, so that I wouldn't have to carry two bags. I considered the Courier, but I prefer having a zipper at the top in addition to a flap.

  • Taylor Perry

    November 15, 2012 03:24 am

This seems like a great bag to keep your hands free and your camera safe!

  • Nicole Beaulac

    November 15, 2012 03:20 am

    The street courier would be just my style and size. These are great looking bags and because they don't look like camera bags they would not be so conspicuous if you are concerned about security or just style. Love that I could carry my iPad safely in it as well. Keep up the good work!!

    I would love the Courier because of the size, the functionality and the style. That FlexFold system is BA and very awesome. I would the chance to win that bag. It's would allow me to carry all my stuff. My iPad, iPhone, Nikon, and an additional lens. Now that is AWSOME. Plus, it will fit a man or a woman because of its neutral styles. I want one.

    Also, congratulations on a great milestone. Hope to be a witness of many more.

    November 15, 2012 03:07 am

    Congrats! I love the Montgomery Street Kit Bag as it compact and ideal for travel and street photography. It can accommodate a camera, along with accessories like filters, cleaning pens etc. Compared to the bigger versions, it is very compact and would fit perfectly in my suitcase or backpack while travelling and wouldn't be a bother for the street. Cheers!

  • Nathan Heeney

    November 15, 2012 03:07 am

    If I had to choose a bag right now I would choose the Montgomery Street Backpack mainly because I need a bag that can hold my small collection of lenses. I've grown old to using my dads old Canon single strap bag. I can't do all the physical activities that I would like to do while still having my camera on my person as well. This will also be a great backpack for me for when I move to NYC to study photography.

    I hate sounding like a suck up but this site is awesome, I read the daily email every morning.

    Thanks!

  • Veronica

    Wonderful giveaway! I like the Montgomery Street Courier. It doesn't "look" like a camera bag, so it doesn't scream "hey, I've got lots of expensive gear over here, please...come rob me!" Plus, it can accommodate lots of stuff for a day-trip. Love it!

  • Mark Hoffman

    November 15, 2012 03:03 am

    I'd go with the Montgomery Street Kit Bag. I have a good walkaround zoom (the DA 18-135) for my Pentax K-x, and it would be nice to have something nice but inconspicuous to carry it in.

    This is the third time I've tried to leave a comment. I apologize if I'm repeating myself online. I would choose the Street Courier bag because it's smaller than the backpack version but large enough to hold the gear I like to carry with me. I like the wide sturdy strap so that it won't dig into my flesh after a day of carrying the bag around. The side panel access is a "must have" for me.

    Congratulations on the million mark.

  • Marcia Fasy

    November 15, 2012 03:00 am

    I like all the bags but my favorite was the Montgomery Street Courier. One of the things I like is that it doesn't look like a camera bag and I love that it can be folded flat for storage.

  • Angie

    November 15, 2012 02:59 am

    I commented earlier - but my comment never made it to the thread. :( ...so I'll try again.
    I like the Montgomery Street Kit Bag, because I have a large bag, but sometimes I want something small so I can just take my camera+lens with me and I have a place to stash it if I stop at a restaurant for lunch or need to use a restroom! These were my two biggest problems while on vacation.

    I love dPS! I've learned so much over the years. Please keep up the good work!

    If I had to choose a bag, I would choose the Montgomery Street Backpack mainly because I need more room to hold my small collection of lenses. I've been using my fathers old Canon bag for awhile now and I just can't do the things I want to do with it and this would be an awesome way to receive a new bag before I have to buy a new one for college next year.

    Just as a shout out, this site is awesome. I read the daily email everyday when I wake up!

    Way to go, Darren! You deserve it all because of your hard work.

    The Montgomery Street Backpack would be a terrific solution because it is large enough for my small laptop and all of the camera gear I have and more. Man, that side slit for the camera just rocks my socks... and it looks like a backpack, not a camera bag with $2000 of stuff in it.

    Thank you for a great site. It has changed my photography so much. And thank you for the opportunity to win a killer camera bag! I love the Montgomery Street Backpack in grey. Love that it has room for a laptop, doesn't shout camera bag and is classy.

    I liked the Montgomery Street Courier bag the best,
    Mostly because it's not too big and not too small.

    It's just the perfect size for one DSLR, An extra lens and a few small accessories.
    Perfect for a day out on the town, Or a small assignment not requiring a lot of camera equipment.

    I really love the quick access side zipper to the main camera compartment,
    That would be very nice for spur of the moment street photography shots where you need your camera fast.

    Montgomery Street Courier because it is not too big but not too small. I am a huge fan with messenger style bags that can sling around the shoulder. It provides comfort, isn't in the way, but at the same time I am able to keep an eye on my bag vs a backpack where it is out of sight.

    Great website and an amazing photography resource!

    Now the tough part, how to sell myself as a worthy winner without sounding like a complete grovelling moron yet retaining an air of suave sophistication.......

    As a man reaching the midpoint in his life I have recently discovered the joys of photography. Alas, with a 2 year old child, a shopaholic wife, mortgage and all the incumbent costs of family life I struggle to devote time and cash to my new hobby.

    Occasionally, little competitions like this one on the internet offer a glimmer of hope to those looking to improve our lives. I'm in no doubt that by winning the Street Backpack or Street Courier my photography will be elevated to highest possible standard and gain much adoration from all corners of the photographic world. I'll also be the coolest guy walking around my little corner of the world and may even attract a small but devoted cult like following who are so blinded by the raw style of my photography bag that they will completely ignore other aspects of my appearance and style in order to bathe in the soft light of my bag endowed magnificence. I may even grow a beard.

    Thanks!

    Congrats on a million subscribers! I like the Montgomery Street Kit Bag the best because I'm petite and don't want to carry a huge bag around.

    Congrats on one million subscribers!! What a great way to celebrate. For me the Montgomery Street Courier would be a great bag to have for travel. My current bag can't accommodate my laptop. However it's still small enough I won't feel overloaded when carrying it all day. Thanks DPS and Acme!

    Great job dPS, congratulations. The Street Kit bag would be a great addition to my gear and would be perfect to help me organize my off camera flash gear or other accesories. Looking forward to enjoying the journey while you make it to 2 million in the near future. thanks

    I love the look and functionality of the Montgomery Street Courier. The size and capacity would be a perfect fit for my physical frame and my day-trippin' gear! Thanks for the opportunity to win and thanks for the many years of instruction and support provided by all at dPS - keep up the good work!!

    The Street Courier would be my chosen bag. It is smaller than the backpack version, but roomy enough to hold the gear required for my purposes. The strap looks sturdy enough so that it won't dig into my flesh after carrying it around for a day. I particularly like side panel access. For me that is a "must have" in a camera bag.

    The Montgomery Street Backpack :
    1. good for professionals on the move.

    Montgomery Street Courier - looks to be the right size. Should just about get all my usual gear in there. The side access looks like it would get the most use.

    Normally I would go for the Street Courier because of the ease of access that a messenger bag provides while walking around, but the side pocket on the Montgomery Street Backpack definitely has me convinced that I'd prefer this one! Plus it looks super roomy, and I've been known to try to carry literally all my tech with me. Most of the time I have to compromise, but I think I might just be able to do it with the backpack, haha. I already have the Bowler camera bag by Acmemade and it's one of my favorite things ever, though it does require one hand/arm to be engaged at all times, so it's not always the best choice.

    I've only been subscribing to you guys (via Google Reader) for a few months, but I've already learned so, so much, and I've gotten the chance to snag a few very useful ebooks in the process. Thank you for everything!

    Great job! My heartiest congratulations; you really deserved it.

    Montgomery Street Backpack is the one I would choose as this would keep my both hands free while carrying but would be very easy to access the camera through the "side opening" as shown at the website. All my gears would snugly fit into it and I can carry some food and other articles for my day long photo trips that I usually undertake quite frequently.

    I like the Montgomery Street Courier because it is a very stylish and functional bag. I can carry all my photography gear and other items as well. And the most I like about it is that is does not scream "CAMERA BAG", this gives me a sense of security that my bag will not be stolen. Last but not least, I love the metallic Grey color.

  • Cao Phong NGUYEN

    The one I prefer is the Montgomery Street Backpack in grey color. I prefer bagpacks for my shoulder. I like the fact that it is looks very discreet.
    Thanks for the web site, I love it.

    I like the Montgomery Street Backpack for its versatility, quick access to the camera & that can hold a laptop as well so you can go and sit in a cafe and review/process your photos after a street shoot :)

    The Mongomery Street Backpack because it looks cool & stylish, but most importantly it could fit everything i carry today in ease and avoid the "leave something at home" sindrome

    I would love to own the Courier! It is the perfect size for heading out in day/street shoots! I love that it is light colored on the inside so it is easy to find what I need! I also love being able to make it more compact for traveling! It also has lots of room for personal items, which I totally love!

    Montomery Street Courier is my choice. Perfect size for a woman to carry around camera/tablet unobtrusively. As a bonus, there's room for all those little essentials we normally have to carry around so no need for an additional hand/shoulder bag.

    Love the site. Congratulations on reaching 1 million. You and your dedicated team have done a great job and we all thank and salute you.
