I currently own several bags, including photo backpacks, two sizes of the Lowepro sling bags (Slingshot 200 reviewed here and the new 300 - limited, if any, public availability at this point), a Crumpler shoulder bag, and other types of camera bags from different manufacturers, all in varying sizes. I'm also familiar with all the "high end" bag manufacturers such as ThinkTank, Kinesis, et. al. and all the alternative systems such as waist belts, vests, etc. It's important to remember that most photographers will need more than one bag depending on what they're shooting that day and the one thing I can say is that in an imperfect world of compromises, this is the closest I've come to being satisfied with a single bag.
I'm a long time Canon user so I'll use Canon equipment as a reference and you can check the size of your camera/lenses for fit against these comments. Those using Nikon and other manufactures can do the same. All sizes, weights, dimensions for your brand can easily be found on the web. OK, so here's what I like about this bag.....
1) It holds a compact to large SLR comfortably though my larger cameras (1 series film and digital cameras) with an extended battery grip are a tight fit. For traveling I use a smaller digital camera (5d) with or without a grip, but a 1.Read more ›
The one drawback is that it's narrow. I wanted to set it up so that I could put my Canon 10D attached to my Canon EF 100-300mm L lens, and it was an extremely tight fit. Nevertheless, I find it a great backpack.
There is also a difference in how the Slingshoot 200 and 300 are secured to your back. Both have the diagonal shoulder strap. The Slingshot 200 has a second strap that is attached to the bag near my right hip and clips into the shoulder strap around mid chest. This provides enough addtional stability to keep the bag in place while actively moving about. The Slingshot 300 has a more traditional hip belt as the additional stability method. As someone else stated, if you have put a fairly heavy load in your bag, the hip belt is effective at carrying the weight.
Overall both the Slingshots are great bags. The size difference and the stabilty straps are the only appreciable difference between them. I used my Slingshot 200 all weekend long while skiing. It was very comfortable, easily accessible, and not cumbersome at all. I think the Slingshot 300 would have been a little bit of a challenge to carry given its size, for example getting on the chairlift I would have had to swing it around to the front.
Great camera bags that I am sure I will enjoy for many years.
