4.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality Bag with Plenty of Space, 25 Jan 2007
By 
This review is from: Lowepro Slingshot 200 Sling Bag For Digital SLR & 3-4 Lenses for Canon 550D, 500D, 1000D, Nikon D3000, Samsung NX10, PL1, Panasonic G2, Sony Alpha A450 - Black Case (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
I've had this bag for a couple of months now and have been very pleased with it. I'm continually adding to my camera accessories, so I wanted something that wasn't going to be full straight away. The bag easily takes my Nikon D50 with an 18-70mm lens attached and I there is room to allow a bigger lens.

In addition to the main camera area there are five other compartments. These are all accessed through the same zip and they allow you to store 3-4 lenses as well as a flash or other accessories. The walls of the compartments are attached by velcro so you can adjust them to fit your needs. There is an extra zip compartment at the top of the bag that can take more accessories or some snacks :) Another feature of the bag is an all-weather cover. This is kept hidden in a pocket at the bottom of the bag and is very useful when the heavens open.

The bag only has one shoulder strap and another strap that connects over your chest. This allows you to disconnect the chest strap and flip the bag round to your front giving you quick access to your camera. Extra straps around the main compartment allow you to just open the camera area to stop everything else in the bag spilling out. This is a great system, although I did find the bag got a little uncomfortable when wearing it on a longer walks. As a result of this I have opted to get a smaller bag (Lowepro Topload Zoom Mini) to allow me to just carry my camera with its attached lens. This I can then put in a proper rucksack for longer walks. I still think the Slingshot is a great bag and I now use it when I'm going out with the intention to shoot and I want all my lenses.
