4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent as a Medium DSLR Bag., 3 April 2014
By 
This review is from: AmazonBasics DSLR Gadget Messenger Bag Medium with Grey Interior (Camera)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have been using the Vanguard Quovio 41 Professional Photo Video Shoulder Bag - Black and for me this is the "ultimate" DSLR bag, which allows me to get all the gear I need in one bag for a long shoot - with tripod and long lenses. However, there are times when I would just like to take a camera with me and it's not a serious "expedition", but rather a walk in the country or around city streets and this bag is ideal for that purpose.

So I can get a Nikon D7100 and a spare lens as well as small items like batteries, memory cards etc. into this and there is even space for a tablet. I like the way it is fairly compact, but there are quite a few zipped or velcro'd small pouches and this is all very well thought-out for an item at this price-point. Having a black exterior works nicely with Nikon or Canon DSLRs and the interior provides a nice contrast, so you don't lose small items, like lens caps. The interior is soft and padded, so protects your camera well against, for example : scratches on the LCD screens.

I liked the large handle on top and the optional shoulder strap which clips on and feels very secure and comfortable, with its large non-slip pad. In fact, I can't really fault this item, apart from maybe the rubberised logo, which some might not like - but generally it is an unobtrusive and very practical bag, which is ideal for casual photography; where you want to have the camera handy, just in case.

*EDIT* - since writing the above review, I have also had the chance to try the large version of this bag. I was slightly surprised that it is not that much bigger than the medium and it is still not big enough to take long lenses like a 500mm zoom. I do like the zip top and the two clips - it is big enough for 3 small to medium lenses and a DSLR.

I have included 2 photographs under "Customer images" on the product page, which show a side by side comparison of the medium and large bags; as well as showing how a 500mm zoom lens will not even fit in the large bag.

I have the large version and really consider it to be medium at best. I can get my DSLR with kit lens, my 35mm prime and my 300mm zoom in, but that zoom takes the full depth of the bag.
