    I recently went on an overseas trip which required to take as little luggage/bulk and weight as possible. All my regular camera bags were too big to haul along in a normal-size tote, so after looking around for a while, I settled on the TBC-405.

    While it is marketed as a camcorder bag, I found it a perfect match for my Olympus PEN E-P3 12.3 MP Live MOS Interchangeable Lens Camera with 14-42mm Zoom Lens (White). Contrary to many other small camera bags, it is large enough to accommodate the E-P3 comfortably when putting it in on its narrow side (grip up) with the lens attached. The camera fits easily but reasonably snugly, and the small compartment created by the divider is perfect for the battery charger (sans cable, which I transported separately). The exterior pockets hold spare batteries, one each. Note: The interior divider is non-removable, but can be pushed flat against the sides when not needed.

    The interior zip pocket located in the lid can hold a small USB cable or, in my case, a spare SD card. The exterior back zip pocket is a bit small and narrow to put anything larger than say a filter or small USB cable in it but for that it works well.

    If one didn’t want to put the charger into the bag, the second compartment could also hold an external viewfinder, or a macro-converter or fisheye lens. I managed to fit in the Olympus MSC Lens MSC 40-150mm R f4.0-5.6 for Digital PEN Cameras as well but then the camera had to go in to its compartment at a bit of an angle, making this not the easiest fit. So ultimately I would not recommend that particular combo. This really is a bag for a minimalist set-up only.

    The bag itself is well made, I have never had trouble with Case Logic bags quality-wise. I just sometimes wish for a less utilitarian design (think colors other than black, and a few more trendy details) but I found it to be very functional. It is lightweight, reasonably padded to where I didn’t fear camera damage under normal conditions, and also the strap is removable which is always a big plus in my book as it makes transporting the bag inside some other bag or tote or suitcase much easier.

    Not for hauling the kitchen sink but works very well for those situations where bringing only the camera and a spare battery or two is sufficient.

    i use this case for my Olympus EM10. IT cqn hold the camera with a base lense 14-42 2R and olympus 40-150 lense which i bought in Thanksgiving. But it is nit perfectly fit , a little tight in there. See the pictures. By the way, the picture can give you a illusion that this case is pretty big but it is not. My picture also did this.

    Fits perfectly my Canon SX-50 and the battery charger. Additionaly, the side pockets can store spare batteries, filters, coins etc.
