If you own a Digital SLR camera you know how much it set you back and you want to keep it nice and safe when you are out shooting. Since I bought my first Digital SLR camera I had a backpack to go with it. Camera backpacks provide great protection for not only your camera, but normally they have room for extra lenses and other accessories. I have quite a few different larger backpacks, but if I’m just going out quickly I don’t want to be hauling a large bag around with me. I’ve always been a fan of sling-type Backpack’s, and having one that can protect and hold me camera is a plus. Today we are taking a look at Caselogic’s SLR Sling Camera Backpack. This backpack features a patent pending hammock suspension system that suspends your SLR above the bottom of case, providing superior impact protection. Let’s jump right in!
We have already looked at 2 bags from Speck, the CorePack Fly and the PortPack. Today we will be looking at a 3rd bag from them, the AftPack. While the CorePack Fly was a messenger bag and the PortPack was a shoulder bag the AftPack is a backpack. Backpacks are great for people who want to protect their laptop, but also need to the room to carry large text books and other larger items. Read on as we check out the AftPack from Speck.
When most people think of laptop bags they think of the typical messenger bags, probably because that is usually all they sell in stores like Best Buy. Even though messenger bags are probably the most popular type of laptop bag, many companies make shoulder bags. Ever since I started reviewing laptop bags I’ve really come to appreciate shoulder bags because they are perfect for going to coffee shops and other places where you really don’t need a huge bag to carry a lot of gear. Today we will be taking a look at a really cool shoulder bag from Speck, the PortPack.
One of the biggest pains of traveling is going through security. I hate having to always take my laptop out of my bag. Usually my bag is stuffed with gear so its always a struggle to get it out without something getting into the way. Lately we have seen many companies come out with “checkpoint safe” laptop bags that make it so you don’t have to take out your laptop when going through security. The thing about these bags is that they are noit attractive at all. This is where Speck comes in with the CorePack Fly bag, which is available in 2 very attractive colors.
Most of the Lowepro bags we have taken a look at have been smaller bags mainly used for small day trips or for going to conferences. Today we have the biggest camera bag we have ever looked at, the Pro Trekker 300 AW. This bag is made for outdoor photographers, extreme sports shooters and serious enthusiasts who need a workhorse backpack that travels well—in rugged terrain or by air. This bag not only fits your camera and accessories, but also your notebook. Let’s take a look at the Pro Trekker 300 AW and see if it is the perfect camera bag for you.
I’ve been to quite a few conferences and events where I’ve had to carry my Digital-SLR (D-SLR) camera around. It sometimes can be a pain, especially if you are carrying around a lot of gear. We have taken a look at a lot of Lowepro bags, but the Outback 100 is a bit different, it is a belt pack that not only has room for your camera, but room for 2 extra lenses and a few other accessories. Let’s see if this is the camera bag for you!
If you own a SLR or Digital-SLR (D-SLR) camera you need to protect it. Everyone I know that owns an expensive camera has at least one bag for it, if not more. Today we will be taking a look at another bag from Lowepro. This bag has a nice slim design, but also has a good amount of room for a SLR camera, a few lenses, accessories, and even a tripod. This bag has a very yet simple yet effective security system too. So let’s take a look at the Flipside 200!
We have taken a look a quite a few Lowepro bags over the past few years here at ThinkComputers, but most of them have been a combination camera and laptop bag. Today we get the chance to look at one of the camera bags that I’ve wanted to check out for quite a while, the SlingShot 100 AW. As the name hints this is a sling bag that is meant to be carried on your back with just 1 strap. Even though this is a small bag it still has enough room for a SLR camera with lens attached and a few extra lenses and accessories. Let’s take a look…
Evolution Gaming aka EVO-G is probably not widely known among the LAN party scene, but with the LB1 LAN Bag I think they could become more widely known. The EVO-G LB1 LAN Bag comes equipped with all the necessary compartments needed to carry your PC case and extra cables and components to bring along with you to a LAN party. The LB1 has got other carrying cases beat with the sheer protection, quality material and storage space for the avid LAN party goer. It even comes with its own carrying case!
There are bags made especially for notebooks and ones made especially for cameras, but not many companies are making bags for both. Luckily Lowepro is one of those companies. They have been making quality bags for photographers for years and recently they have introduced notebook / camera combo bags. Let’s take a look at one of their newest offerings the Classified 250AW and see if it makes it through our recent trip to CES in Las Vegas.
