Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love LowePro, but ... You are losing the Lord's skill. Notice! When you pack the iPad into the inside pocket and close the backpack cover, the glass of the tablet (not the gorilla glass) will touch the camera's hot shoe (or something else). Not thought out!

Hello Harish, We would recommend that you take a look at the larger Photo Hatchback 22L for the gear you have listed. The Format Backpack will be a little tight for your camera.
