Does anyone know if this bag will fit in a 350d with a 70-300 on in the "ready" position?

I wondered if anyone has this long a lens on in the Slingshot 100AW or would you need the 200Aw to fit it in?

Any thoughts.

Glenn :D


'er indoors has a 350D with a EF-S 17-85 lens attached in a 100AW with room to spare beneath it and the standard 70-300 is not much longer, so I would say yes it would... mind you there ain't much room for anything else though.

Thanks Roy, Iv've got a 17-85 and 70-300 and currently have an Orion Trekker that I got free with a magazine subscription.

I just like the idea of being able to swing the bag around and get at the camera for shooting.

70-300 barrell is about 3 inches longer by my reckoning.

Any other views?

I'm assuming by "70-300mm" you mean the Canon version right?

There are some useful user reviews here that might give you a better idea.

Hi Yoda, we get the same magazine dropping through our doors, lol. Out of interest, did you get the August issue of PP? I didn't, or if I did, then it's gone AWOL.

Slightly off topic....

Looks like there's a deal on those Orion Trekker II bags then as Digital Camera magazine are also giving them away with new subscriptions. They also have an option to go for a free Manfrotto 676B Monopod instead. Not bad.

Take the monopod, the bag's too wee (and doesn't have tripod loops), lol.

I probably would. I already have a bag that I'm happy with.

Thanks for the guidance and link to the camera bga site.

Looks like the slingshot 100 is a little small for having the Canon 70-300is on in in ther centre "ready" compartment".

Might need to look at the 200!?

Thanks again.

Glenn

I am looking into getting the 70-300mm VR to go with my 18-70mm lens and the D80 and have actually been looking at NEW bags over the net for the past hour or so, and then it dawned on me that you can actually change the configuration of the dividers in the bag and came up with this;

Now in the shot is a minolta 70-210mm lens which comes in at 19cm long. The 70-300mm VR is about 15cm long.

Short answer, i don't need to buy a new camera bag w00t. :P

Hi,

I have just bought the Lowpro slingshot 100, and must say it was a fantastic bag for a recent holiday. Everything has been thought of, this bag is fantastic, provides excellent protection for the camera, is really comfortable to wear, and as mentioned in the first post, you can wear the bag to the front which is great for going in shops and for walking in crowds of people you distrust :roll:

All in all, a great bag. I can even fit my wallet and an mp3 player inside!

Thought id give you guys an update on how im getting on with my camera bag. I dont use it. Thats right lol. Ive got a back pack where the small section on the front of it is padded so I just chuck my D80 in there. It wouldnt work with a bigger lense, but I dont like carrying a camera bag thats big and chunky bag and which is so obvious you are carrying a DSLR in there, that I dont use it. I only plan to use it for when im travelling, but as far as going out to take photos, I'll stick with my back pack. That is, untill i get the 70-300VR i so badly want.

*update*

Now that I've got my 70-300, well I'm still using my backpack. I have two bubble wrap bags that i have my 70-300 in, in the main compartment of my back pack, and the 18-70 on my D80 body in the front.

Moral of the story is just question yourselves before you buy a camera bag. Do i NEED one. Personally I'm wishing I'd saved the £56 I spent on mine, and used it on putting it towards another lens. A backpack with a padded compartment can do the same job, while still being inconspicuous. All it means for me, is that I am careful when putting my bag down, and if I need to run at all. Other than that, the only thing I'm missing is an 'all weather' cover.

I'm currently searching for a transport solution that can be attached to my belt e.g. for the flash or one additional lens plus something like a "gun holster" (at least that's what they're called in Germany) where you can put the camera with attached lens in and keep it close to your body on your front slightly to one side without it bobbing back and forth.

Anybody know a solution like this?


Perhaps you're looking for something like this?

The upper image is the plain belt and the lower one is an example of how you can equip it. It's made by Tamrac (http://www.tamrac.com/) and it's called Modular Accesory System. Also as a comic fan, the lower image suspiciously reminds me of Batman's utility belt :mrgreen:

Bye


OMG lol I would not dare!

Ps. Ner ner ner ner ner ner ner batman!!!!!!! lol!
