hi, guys, I would like to get your advices on camera bag. I'm not sure which to get.

I am using the lowepro bag comes with the E-500 promo. Now, it's not enough space for me to squeeze in the 2 lens (actually i have 3). and a external hardisk. Also, no space for flash.

Any advice for me? I'm thinking of the Lowepro Slingshot 200. Is this a good choice? or the Reporter series is better?

:dunno: :dunno: :dunno:

I guess the choice is very personal. I myself use the Nature Trekker AW II and though it is heavy, I get to keep my hands free.

thanks for the quick feedback.

for the Nature Trekker AW II, is it true that you'll have to put down the bag in order to take something? just curious.

I think it is avisable to get 2 or 3 bags depending on situations.

eg.
To family gathering dinner, a small slingbag would be enough.
Trips to a zoo, maybe a backpack (easier on the shoulder) or larger slingbag
Overseas backpack trip, a larger slingbag since you will have one backpack carrying ur essential items like passports etc.

Just my 2 cents.
:)

Personally, I will choose the Lowepro SR 200 over crumpler. :bsmilie:

thank you very much. Say123 for the info. :) I'm thinking about your idea of having different bags for different occasions. Make lots of sense. Just like the right attire for the right occasion. :)

However, I'm sure my wife will not be happy about it! :(

bro,

one point to note. crumpler bags tend to gather a fair bit of dust, cos the bag has higher Velcro Friendly surface area den the Lowe Pro's .


:think: I suppose thats wat the dust buster is 4.

I've got myself a Lowepro Slingshot 200AW. :) Like the design a lot, very practical for my use.

Anyway, thanks a lot for all your inputs. :)
