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!
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.
Most ThinkComputers readers are likely unfamiliar with Be.ez. Before CES, I’d never heard of the French company myself. I sat down with Be.ez CEO Nicolas Cottard to review Be.ez’s line of laptop sleeves, bags, and other device containers. Be.ez’s flagship product is a laptop sleeve which uses memory foam instead of neoprene. The pricing is similar in the $25-$40 range, but the memory foam is times more protective than a simple neoprene sleeve. Neoprene offers scratch protection and moderate moisture protection, but virtually no collision protection. The memory foam offers all of these. All of the stitching is inside to prevent it from catching on zippers and such.
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…
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.
