Thread: Tamrac VS Lowepro

  1. #1

    Default Tamrac VS Lowepro

    I not sure if anyone compared the pro and con of both brand.

    I am actually looking for a backpack to hold my Canon 450D + 3 lens + 430exII flash for travelling oversea.

    Can the CSers please advise.

    a comparision on 2 models from the different brands would be better, rather than comparing other brands as a whole.

    both are generally the same to me.

    lowepro has more padding though, i think.

    this is like asking if canon or nikon are better.... duh.

    In the US, can order both and return one or both if not happy at all.

    what you can do is find shops that list both and try them out personally.

    for all intents and purposes, the Fastpack is convenient as a sight seeing camera bag.

    Might want to consider Think Tank as well as it as well as Lowepro since their distributors are within vicinity of Cityhall MRT which is convenient.
    You wont see me much less remember me but i am the guy who makes you look good.
