Case Logic CPL-107BK Camera Sling for DSLR, Black

With an overall casual aesthetic and optimal space for camera gear and daily personal items, this sling provides the on-the go photographer with an all-in-one option. The side camera

compartment provides easy, fumble free camera access. Contemporary quilting reveals just how much padding is protecting your camera.

  • Compatible with most DSLR cameras, two additional lens or one additional lens plus a flash, and accessories
  • Adjustable, padded dividers allow you to customize the camera compartment
  • Front zippered pocket and top compartment provide organization and easy access to non-camera accessories
  • Dedicated internal memory card slip pocket
  • Weather hood fits snugly over the bag to protect from the elements when not in use, store in dedicated back panel compartment
  • The Case Logic Sling camera bag is a very convenient carry case for camera and tripod, plus a few extras. The adjustable storage for the
  • camera is a really good idea, we needed to remove both to make our sony A77 fit, but for a smaller camera the velcro shelves can be left in to ensure the camera fits snugly and leave room for extra lenses. There is
  • another large zipper compartment that can easily hold a smaller camera, or a video camera. A slim front space is good for wipes or maybe a driver’s license. The camera zip storage area also has a dedicate area for extra memory cards.
  • The potential flaw is the strength of the stitching. Having filled the bag with all my kit and zipped it up, wherever things were a bit tight I could start to see the stitching exposed; it was stretching in the same way you would see the seam stitching pull in cheap jeans if they were too tight.
  • This flexibility may be intentional but it is not comforting to see. My life experience would lead me to assume that this is an indication of future weakness and failure in the design materials used.

Canon 200DG Digital Camera Gadget Bag -Black

Top Loading – Nylon – Camera Case

  • Designed to hold SLR digital cameras
  • Hold up to two SLR camera bodies, three lenses, and accessories
  • Padded, easy-access side pockets for extra memory cards
  • Durable, water-repellent nylon exterior and weather-flap lid
  • Inside dimensions measure 10.5 x 7.5 x 7 inches (WxHxD) After reading some reviews and comparing prices, I decided to
  • get this bag. It is quite large and perhaps slightly larger than what i had imagined it to be from the pictures. It has a lot of space for a camera body and 4 other lenses incl the longish canon 70-200mm f/4 with some
  • room left for other accessories. The strap is padded for comfort in the area where it rests on the shoulder. It is generally well made and looks very good. Although the canon logo kind of makes it obvious what’s in the bag.

    But after a weekend of day trips with this bag, I found that with all the stuff in the bag, it is quite heavy. I am leaning towards getting a backpack that may be more appropriate and convenient for walking/hiking comfort.

Bag is big, it can carry pretty much everything it says it can
-Padding is excellent better than the padding on my Ape Case bag. Bottom padding is excellent. There are also two rubber pieces on the bottom to protect the bag.
-Comes with plenty of dividers so you can configure it however you want
-Top lid has velcro so you can secure the bag relatively well without having to buckle the buckles in place everytime. Velcro is only on the two sides of the top lid, not on the front of the lid.
-Shoulder strap is on a pivoting hinge so the strap never gets twisted up. One reviewer for the Canon  bag says that its strap is not pivoting. For me this is a big plus!0   Gabino Fernandez

Zeikos ZE-CA48B Deluxe Soft Medium Camera and Video Bag

The Zeikos Medium Sized Deluxe Video and Camera bag is the perfect compliment to hold all of your equipment. It features a shock proof nylon material

and is water resistant. It has 1 removeable divider, 2 outer, zippered compartments with 1 webbed pocket, removeable shoulder strap and a handle grip. It has a limited lifetime warranty.

At ten dollars, this camera is great value for money. It is as good, if not better than, fifty dollar camera bag from Canon. I use it for video camera Canon HV-20. The Zeikos bag has 2 adjustable compartments, and I use one for charger

and one for the camera. Most other bags, including Canon, have just one big compartment where it is hard to squeeze in camera and the charger. Two zippered side pockets can be used for mini DV tapes, remote and memory cards but are too small for extra battery. The back pocket can also be used for thin

objects like memory card, manual etc. Construction appears sturdy but padding could be thicker. Shoulder strap and handle work well. Overall, excellent value for money.It fits my canon t3i wstock 18-55mm lens plus a 55-250mm IS telephoto lens perfectly.Padding is pretty good. Good materials.

lightweight, which is what many amateur photographers want who don’t own a

lot of lens.I purchased this camera bag for my Canon Powershot SX20IS Digital Camera with 20x zoom. It fits nicely in the bag, along with the lens hood, battery charger and extra batteries in a separate zippered compartment. Very compact

yet plenty of room for the camera and extras. Two small side compartments that have no way to secure so are basically worthless for anything of value. Has a belt loop, handle, and shoulder strap. The camera case might be a little too bulky to

loop through your belt. I have returned 2 other bags that did not fit my camera well before I found this little top camera bags.

Case Logic SLRC-202 Medium SLR Camera Bag (Black)

The Caselogic SLRC-202 Medium SLR Camera Bag (Black) is Compatible with most SLRs with a zoom lens. Patent pending hammock system suspends your SLR above the bottom of case, providing

superior impact protection. Water proof EVA base withstands the elements and allows the case to stand up on its own. Memory foam on interior helps protect your delicate LCD screen. Two large side

  • Compatible with most SLRs with a zoom lens
  • Patent pending hammock system suspends your SLR above the bottom of case, providing superior impact protection
  • Water-proof EVA base withstands the elements and allows the case to stand up on its own
  • Memory foam on interior helps protect your delicate LCD screen
  • Two large side compartments store additional lenses and accessories compartment dimensions 6 x 4 x 3.5
  • Cases tended, thus, to be either too stiff, too heavily padded and bulky or simply too difficult to quickly get the camera out for that once in a
  • lifetime shot every photographer has seen and missed. Consequently, many shutterbugs both amateur and professional have taken to carrying their cameras uncased, held around their neck by the old reliable strap.

    Thanks to the good technical imagination, innovation and skill of the folks at Case Logic, there is a new and lovely alternative to the imperfect case and the all too vulnerable open exposure of the camera and lens. This is the SLRC-202 SLR Camera Bag.

  • What I don’t like is how the bag hangs. The supplied strap is too narrow, and keeps slipping off my shoulder. For use as a shoulder bag you really need to replace the strap with a wide, non-slip strap. Even with a wide
  • strap the bag doesn’t really hang well, compared to my old, flexible Domke bags. On a couple of long day hikes I found it clumsy and difficult to use and to hang on to.

    Still, for the money it’s hard to beat. I have a huge Lowepro case for traveling with a lot of gear, and I’m getting a small Lowepro backpack for hikes, but for short trips in the car or scooter, this case still has a lot of utility.

    • This camera backpack can easily hold 2 full-size DSLR cameras and a few extra lenses, or even some point & shoot cameras all in the same case. A mini tripod will definitely fit inside, not sure
    • about a full-size tripod since I don’t own one if they fold up you may be able to. Whatever you want this case to be for your particular needs, it can morph into it.

The main section of the backpack is configured into 9 separate compartments. However these compartments slightly padded BTW are fastened with Velcro, so you can configure the interior of the backpack into anything that you would need it for. You can even remove all the

compartments if you want and use it as a regular backpack. Inside the lid are two separate see though plastic zippered compartments as well.

Make no mistake  this thing will hold a LOT of gear. In the Canon, I took to Paris two Nikon DSLR bodies, an 80-200 pre DSLR 2.8 constant zoom big a 50 1.4, an 85 1.8, and a 20 2.8, SB-600 flash, along with table top tripod, large air cleaning syringe, and assorted. Cramped, but do able. And I’ve since put the same rig in the Amazon but without traveling

Finally — I also have Tamrac backpacks, as well as a Crumpler 8 Million Dollar Home Case Blue Orange MD0810A. what can I say  I’m a bag junkie. The others were all more expensive, sometimes over a C-Note more expensive. And NO layout is more accessible than this Canon Amazon full zip opening backpack. Lay it flat on the ground, and you can grab anything everything in moment. No digging, no hassle.

Buy this sucker. I got it in a lightning deal, but the normal Amazon price is still a great one.

Case Logic SLRC-205 SLR Camera Sling (Black)

This SLR sling was designed to keep you ready to shoot wherever your journey takes you. Wear the sling cross-body, then simply swing the case to the front for immediate access to your camera and

accessories. The camera compartment provides ultimate protection for your SLR. The suspension hammock system patent pending suspends the

camera body preventing impact with the bottom of the case. The compartment lid is lined with scratch-resistant memory foam to help prevent screen damage. Compartment measures 7.9 x 7.3 x 7.9 and accommodates most SLR bodies with attached standard lens. Additional large compartment measures 8.5 x 4 x

5 for an extra lens, flash or other bulky accessories. Three additional compartments store smaller items such as extra battery, cords, memory cards or keys. Strap system on the front of the case secures a tripod or other bulky

gear with industrial strength hook-and loop. Adjustable shoulder and waist straps ensure a comfortable fit. Wrist strap limits unnecessary

  • Holds SLR camera body with attached standard lens

  • Large zippered compartment stores an additional lens or flash

  • Three additional zippered pockets store memory cards and other small items
  • When I received this case I was excited, it was designed just the way I wanted and appeared to be the perfect case for a DSLR and an extra lens. But while the design was wonderful, the craftsmanship is poor. Shortly
  • after receiving it I left for a trip to Italy. On the second day the handle began to fray and separate from the case. By the end of the trip it was attached by only a few threads. In addition zippers would slip open, I
  • almost lost a lens in the subway in Rome. While a good design, it is poorly executed. I am returning the product.

The sling has strategically placed mesh pads to keep you from sweating too much where it contacts you. The case keeps the camera safe, and when it’s time to use it, you can easily slide the case forward and access the camera that is

sitting safely in the hammock. Watching the other hikers have to work to get their cameras out of their back packs, or have their cameras exposed, just slung

over their shoulders, made me a little smug today. I felt like I had the best solution and am now very glad I got one. Kudos to the designer
