I picked up a GM1 to use while going fast and light hiking or mountain biking.... or with friends who didn't want to wait for me to grab my camera out of my camelback. It is great for that, especially when carried in a Lowepro Dashpoint 20.

Has anyone else found a good bag for the GM1?

Cheers,

I use exactly this for my GM1. I think Djarum has missed the point, it is very small because that's how we want it to be.

Thanks for sharing. Just ordered one to use with my E-PL5 + P12-32. I've been wanting something that would allow me quicker access to my camera than digging into my bag. The price is great!

I, like Djarum, take too many lenses for something of that size to work for me. I've opted for the Think Tank Turnstyle 5 instead.

I will say, though, that I like the strap system. I can see that being something I would use if I had and only carried a Fuji X100s or it might work with just the EM5 and a pancake lens...or maybe I can fit it in there with the 17/1.8 attached? Might have to look at dimensions. I tend to shoot street with the EM5 and 17/1.8 a lot and might be a nice alternative. I could just put the 45/1.8 in my cargo shorts pocket.

I used (and still use on occasion) that bag with a GX1 and the P20 or P14. Great hiking bag.

Sorry I should have been more clear. I use this when I only have 5 seconds to grab the camera and take a pic, almost like a holster.

When taking the EM5 I use either an insert in a pack, Lowepro Flipside or the Lowepro Dashpoint 30. The dashpoint 30 will fit an EM5 with a lens as large as the 12mm on it.

But for holding the GM1 on the go this little bag is super nice!
