Awesome kit bag- it will hold everything!,
This review is from: Lowepro Nova 200 AW All Weather Shoulder Bag for Digital SLR - Black (Electronics)
Well I got this bag for my self for xmas 09, and I am very impressed! My only complaint- I wish I got a smaller size, maybe the 180. The reason I got this model was that I have my digital and film SLRs, and so I wanted a bag that was designed to hold 2 camera bodies. But I am sure that the 180 would be more than big enough- however I do like the idea that ALL my camera gear can be stored away in one place when at home. The all weather cover (after a few trials) is great- and works; and the shoulder strap and handle are very comfy to use. I was very pleased with the amount of dividers included, I've made no end of different configurations deciding on how to store my gear; and the amount of little zipped pockets is great!
So, if you've got a lot of kit (like 5 lenses and 2 bodies) and want to carry it all at once- I highly recommend this bag! And if you want a bag to store all your kit away when not in use- this bag will be great. BUT if, like me, you want a bag that you actually feel half-comfy taking places, then I would go for no bigger than the Lowepro nova 180.
And just to put things in perspective- In this bag I can store:
a Sony a200 DSLR with standard zoom attached,
charger and UK lead,
data cables and remote release for the Sony,
Canon EOS 650 film SLR with 50mm 1.8 attached,
420EZ (a big) flash,
8 rolls of film in boxes,
Minolta x300 film SLR with 28mm lens attached,
a telephoto zoom lens for the minolta,
a standard zoom and 2x teleconverter for the minolta,
and about 6 filters!
So like I say- a great bag for storing your full kit or if you're a pro and need to take a lot with you. Other wise, it's just a bit too big!
Any way the conclusion I came to was that I'll use this great bag to store my kit when it's at home... and get me a nova 170 or 180 to take my kit with me when I go out somewhere!
Hope this helps!
