“ Lowepro SlingShot 100 AW - Rucksack for camera with zoom lens - microfibre, TXP, nylon ripstop - black „
The Lowepro Slingshot 100 is an over the shoulder camera bag which is small and incredibly versatile.
Inside, it has room for a small SLR camera with its lens attached and still enough space another small to medium lens. In my case, the bag easily houses my Nikon D60 with the 55-200mm lens and the 18-55mm zoom also.
There is only one shoulder strap on the bag - but this isn't really a problem as it's only a small carrier and I can't imagine anyone using it for incredibly heavy items. The strap can be adjusted, so the bag will be able to be used by both large and small people.
The beauty of the products small size means you can easily take it to places where you wouldn't normally bring a full size bag - for example music festivals and gigs.
A great feature of this particular model is that it's weather proof - I only found this out today, when fidding around with one of the pockets at the bottom - out popped a waterproof cover, which encases the whole of the item. Cool.
Inside, apart from the main camera and lens compartments, there are a multitude of spaces and zipped sections for things like filters, batteries and memory cards. In fact it houses all of the photography equipment which I own.
In conclusion, this is an excellent bag for the person who has a fairly small SLR camera and only a couple of lenses. If you are one of those photographers who has a lens for each occasion, then this is probably isn't for you.
It costs around £45 from Amazon, but you can also get hold of one from Jessops and a selection of other stores.
I highly recommend this product, which suits my needs perfectly.
