DSLR Camera Deals – Lowepro Passport Sling Camera Bag Review

LoweproThe Lowepro Sling camera bag is the one I own, it goes everywhere I go…. The only difference is when I purchased mine, the price wasn’t so nice. I think right around $50.00!

I love it! My only real complaint, I wish  the side pockets had a button or zipper on them. I don’t feel very secure when I have my wallet on the outside of the camera bag. So I just keep it on the inside, but it would be easier to reach for it if it was on the outside. Besides that I love it. My Canon 60D fits with one lens on the camera and 2 lenses tucked away on the side.

Today’s price:

List Price:     $74.99

Removable, padded shoulder pad with non-slip patch provides extra comfort, no matter where you place it along shoulder strap;

The Lowepro Passport Sling is for those who need tons of flexibility in a small compact bag. Lowepro’s Passport Sling is designed for today’s photo enthusiasts who want to carry an equal amount of camera and personal gear as they sightsee, travel or go out for a walk with their DSLRs . It’s unique and comfortable shape is unlike a traditional sling bag-it truly conforms to the body and easily moves with the wearer. Place it across the chest, high and close or low and loose, depending on the activity. The shoulder strap features a cam lock buckle that easily adjusts for an ideal fit, plus a removable, sliding shoulder pad that offers cushioned comfort when needed. On the exterior, two slash pockets and a water bottle pocket provide quick access to maps, guide books, boarding passes. Inside, the sling is equipped to protect your DSLR and a few accessories as well as offer plenty of space for personal items. Unzip the front of the Passport Sling to reveal an expansion compartment that adds approximately 30% more space-enough to accommodate items like a light jacket, lunch, cool souvenir or farmers’ market find. A fully padded camera box (with built-in memory card pocket) protects a DSLR.

Here is a review I found from Lowepro:

Kata DR-4661 Digital Rucksack

I am always on the look out for an amazing camera bag.  And this one is looking pretty amazing because it’s small yet you can pack a ton of stuff into it. Nice soft liners for your lenses and Digital SLR.

Kata DR-466i Digital Rucksack

Priced at $63.58. I like to post cameras and accessories when they are on sale. I will keep an eye on this one to see when it goes on sale, but it seems like a pretty great camera bag even when it’s not on sale!

The middle separating divider easily zips open for full bag access.The dedicated rear padded compartment will protect a laptop or hold paperwork. The large top compartment will hold personal gear or additional equipment, and the internal pockets and mp3 player pouch will allow you to organize your personal effects as efficiently as your photographic gear. Ample external pockets allow quick zippered access to supplies and a water bottle/ tripod support pocket pulls out from a side pocket. Included rain cover folds neatly away into an integrated pocket and can be hung out to dry on the small buckle next to the handle, or tucked away for storage in one of the pockets.

Case Logic SLR Sling

This one is pretty cool! A case logic SLR Sling for $46.98 which is 41% savings! That is awesome! I seem to have a thing for camera bags. Not shoes, not purses or a any other kind of shopping, but camera bags.

I have accumulated an odd bunch of them that is for sure. My strangest one was probably a Nintendo bag that I thought would carry one lens perfectly. That was the year my mom shook her head and bought me a Thinktank backpack for Christmas.  Which is pretty stinkin awesome I must say.  Camera bags come in all shapes and sizes and my latest one I think about is a sling back pack.  I am always looking for convenience factor. Especially with kids I want to be able to slide my camera somewhere safe while I open a bag or twist the top off something. Anyway I thought this one was pretty cool!
