Great addition to day-trips or Micro 4/3 shooting
November 05, 2012
It has been almost a year now since I purchased this bag (I bought it from Henry's at christmas time on sale), and it has made a wonderful addition to my photography kit. The best thing that this bag has to offer is its size and slingshot design.
Size: This bag is very compact. I have an Olympus E-PL3 (micro 4/3 compact camera) and I can easily store all my backup battery stuff, charger, lens hoods, capture camera clip, and the Olympus 40-150 tele lens in the main compartment. I realize that the micro 4/3 system is smaller to begin with, but I think that you can easily fit a standard DSLR and 2-3 additional lenses in this bag provided you also use the top storage area, making it a great bag for day trips.
Slingshot Design: The whole idea behind this bag is that it is great for quick lens changes/ camera grabbing. You simply need to unclasp the slip on the front, then it swings around to your front/side to give you quick access to your gear. I have found this very handy, as it never seems to fail that you don't have your camera handy when you see something happen that you want to capture. By reducing the time to grab your camera, you may find that you have enough time to capture those shots that you once would have missed.
Overall, I think that this bag makes a great addition to a micro 4/3 camera system or a standard DSLR system. It is small enough to carry everything that I need for little day trips, and it provides quick access to your gear when you want to capture a shot on the fly. I've taken it on many day trips, and if you can pack all of your gear in the main pouch, the top pouch can double as a nice sandwich/apple storage area.
