5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect companion for a non-professional DSLR, January 14, 2008
This review is from: Tamrac 5767 Velocity 7x Photo Sling Pack (Black) (Camera)
The Tamrac 5767 bag is perfect for the walking photographer. I've used it for day-long outings to the zoo/park and found it competely comfortable. The sling design distributes the weight accross the back and shoulder, making it easy to carry my Nikon D80 with 18-135 and 70-300 VR lenses.

The TAMRAC website includes additional photos showing ease of access to the bag, and a diagram of the interior. It is very easy to access the camera without removing the bag (a big plus over the more conventional single-shoulder bags or the larger backpack bags). However, the interior is not quite as roomy as the diagram suggests. Still, I can fit the 70-300 to left side, place the camera with the 18-135 in the center, and still have room for polarizing/UV filters below the camera. It appears that an external flash (Nikon SB-800 sized) will fit to the right side, but I haven't purchased one yet to test it. The interior includes several moveable velco dividers which enhance its flexibility.

The exterior zippered pocket isn't huge, but there is room for extra batteries, memory cards, or filters. I've managed to squeeze a case for sunglasses in there as well.

The shoulder strap is adjustable, but may present a problem for larger users. I found it uncomfortable to wear the bag as shown - with the right strap immediately under the arm - preferring to let the bag hang lower and looser (the middle of the bag rests near my waist). I am average size and height (5'10" 195lbs) and the strap is completly extended.
