- Sling bag - unlike a backpack, you can access your camera while keeping the bag on your shoulder
- With the additional strap, it is securely attached to your back and does not move when walking or cycling
- Very comfortable
- Weather proof with the cover
- Extra space at the top for glasses and/or a very small bottle of water
- Ability to carry a monopod/tripod
- Lots of pockets to hold a cleaning kit, extra battery, etc...
- The bag is not held straight on your back (at least for me - because of the sling, the bag is tilting sideway). It's ok unless you also carry a monopod/tripod, in which case you have to be careful not to hit someone with your monopod/tripod in narrow spaces like elevators
- There are 3 versions of the bag. I am keeping the 102 but ordered the 202 as well, because I want the side access to both my camera and my 70-300 VC lens. The 102 is a bit small to do this comfortably. If the 70-300 is on the camera, it will too long to fit
- The dividers have velcros but the positioning of the velcros limits your options in term of arranging the configuration of the bag. I would like to have the camera with the lens attached + the other lens to both be accessible from the side, while other elements like wide angle and flash can be accessed by opening the bag completely
None of these cons are real issues.
UPDATE - Comparison of the 102 and the 202
I received the 202 this week. I own a 70-300 lens and I attached it to my Nikon 5200. I took pictures of the 2 bags, with the camera and without the camera. As you can see on the pictures, the 202 is wider, so it can accommodate the camera with the lens on, while the 102 is too narrow for that. Here are some rough measurements of the INSIDE of the bag.
Width = 8 3/4 (202) vs. 6 3/4 (102)
Depth = 5 3/4 (202) vs. 4 1/2 (102)
Height = 11 1/2 (202) vs. 10 1/2 (102)
What I like about the 202 over the 102:
- Can accommodate the camera with the 70-300 lens on
- More space to access both the camera and one lens from the side pocket
- Both of them are very light
All other features are the same. Net, if you are not sure which one to choose, go for the 202.
...and while it can't carry "everything" -- it can carry a lot!
I myself own Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera, and one main reason for purchasing that camera is because it is compact -- and buying a huge camera backpack would have somewhat defeated that 'compact' purpose.
First a quick breakdown:
What I like:
1) Keeps things 'compact' -- I bought a small camera for this purpose, so it makes sense that the pack reflects that low-profile requirement as well.
2) Modestly priced! Camera packs can get expensive -- this is definitely not!!
3) You can ADD ON to the pack. It has two "SlipLock" attachment-ready spots on the pack -- so if you needed more room for lenses, etc, you can simply purchase one of those add-ons. This will add to the overall cost of the 'pack', along with bulkiness, but to me it is very notable that it can be expanded upon. One is in the tripod-mount area (so you can't have a tripod if using that spot), and one is on the back pocket area.
4) Quick-use. Like the 'Sling Shot' name refers to, you can get to your camera quickly. This is the most obvious feature, but it is worth mentioning, and preforms its task well.
5) All-Weather cover. It's just extra peace-of-mind, and kind of cool to have built-in.
6) Even has a micro-fiber cloth built in -- it's a nice, considerate touch.
Things I don't like:
1) Not really a 'con'...but if I do pack it to the brim (with a tripod as well), it does get pretty heavy for a one-strap pack & will start to hurt after carrying for a w while.
2) Depending on how you have the strap situated, a tripod can protrude out pretty far to the side. This can be bad if you are on a narrow path where it can get caught, or are walking through areas with lots of people. Don't want to hit people with the tripod or knock anything over!
What I currently carry in the pack fluctuates based on what lenses I have available to me, but you can pack quite a bit into it.
It is worth noting, however, that when I have my Pocket Cinema Camera equipped with a metabones speedster, I cannot 'easily' fit it in the main camera compartment with a Canon 70-300mm lens. I was slightly surprised by this, given the small form-factor of the Pocket camera, but that is with the speed booster adding on some extra bulk. It fits, it is just a very tight fit that I must work the zippers around to close the pack.
I find that a lot of the space I use is dedicated to charging cables, etc -- which is a bit of a shame...but it's needed for the other equipment.
I would say that you could likely fit 3 or [maybe, if one is a pancake] 4 lenses in the pack -- if they are all modest-sized (with one attached to the camera). If you have a lot of gear, I don't think this is intended to be an 'entire load-out' pack...obviously.
Overall I'd say that I really love this pack. I mentally debated returning it because of it's smaller size -- but then reminded myself that's why I bought it in the first place. I *did*, however, purchase a larger pack as well...in case I really do need a full load-out with a lot of lenses (and other misc room for other items).
With the built-in features & expandability via Lowepro's "SlipLock" system, this is a marvelous little pack to have.
