New Camera Bag
I recently had the requirement for a new camera bag. My old shoulder bag had served me well, but was just getting too small and it wasn't the most comfortable bag to use if you had to carry it for an extended period of time.
I liked the idea of a backpack for comfort, but this would just not work for me. The accessibility of a shoulder bag was a definite requirement (let's face it who wants to take off a backpack every time you need access to your camera or other piece of equipment?). I started to investigate my options when I stumbled upon the Slingshot range of bags from Lowepro - they looked very promising.
With a single wide strap worn diagonally it is normally worn as a backpack - when you need access to your gear swing it around to the front. A built in raincoat for the bag was also a bonus.
So, it was off to the camera store with my gear to see if it would fit and to have a trial run. The SlingShot 200 AW was just right - specifically designed for digital it easily accommodated my Olympus E300 (with battery grip and tripod mount attached) extra lenses, flashcards, flash and other bits and pieces.
It was an easy choice!
The bag has now been on lots of outings including international travel (no problems with size or weight) and I must say that I am not disappointed! A great camera bag when you need to be ready quickly without compromising on comfort.
