Good offer on this great bag and perfect for all those that have just ordered a 400d from Tesco and need a good bag for it.

Offer is only valid until the end of today apparentlly so be quick although Amazon do this same bag for £33.36 delivered as well so not the end of the world. Link to Amazon which has some good photos of the bag and how it works

http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000BAX50G/

I have the 200 AW version as I have the additional battery grip mounted to my Canon and it is a great bag and has the bonus of not looking like a camera bag and attracting unwanted attention!

Hope this helps someone

This camera bag is amazing - buy one now! I have my D70 in mine, pretty much all SLRs will fit if your lens isnt massive. Anything up to 135mm will fit just fine though.

I bought mine from Cameras2U http://www.cameras2u.com/products/details.cfm?PRODUCT=34736

It's only £32.84 inc next day delivery there so no rush to buy from Amazon.

What a pity. I just ordered one pending delivery from Cameras2U.com

This is a good deal, voted hot.

This is a very good deal, I don't understand why people have rated it as cold. However, the next model up (the 200 AW) is at a good price from Cameras2u and you can get quidco.

Overall voted Hot.

Wow, I was checking today and it was £26 delivered from Amazon!
Just got back in tonight and it's up in price!

I was contemplating whcih to get - 100 or 200. Maybe the 200 is too big. I was lucky enought to grab a 400d with kit 18-55. I think I'm going to go for a Sigma 55-200. I'd like a bag to carry both these and the charger in...hence the 200 may be too big, but then again, I'll probably get a flash and another lense later....

Any advice is appreciated.
Also, anyone come across Crumpler bags yet?

If anyone is interested I wrote a review of the Slingshot 100AW here:

http://www.rockforum.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=9951

(scroll down a bit to get past the shoulder bag review)
In general I like the 100, externally it's not too big and fairly comfortable for carrying over distance although it does 'move' a bit much when on my back but that's the trade off of a single strap and me being a skinny sod!

I've seen some people which can pack and impressive amount of stuff in, I usually go with one body + normal lens, a telephoto and either a macro prime or flash depending on what I'm doing. There's then enough room to add a teleconverter, flash cards, batteries etc. It is a very tight fit if you've got a big-ish telephoto, it's a little tricky trying to whip it quickly in and out. If I sacrfice one of the other lenses, the camera will fit up and down with the telephoto mounted which can come in handy.

great review - always good to see it in the flesh before buying.
well done!

Hi john, I'm sparking interest in getting either the Rezo 160 or 170 for my new Canon 400D. Funds permit I may get another lens. Would it be a better choice to go for the 170?

Cheers :)

It's actually cheaper to get these people (I did it a couple of weeks ago) http://www.warehouseexpress.com/index.asp?photo/lowepro/slingshot.html

Warehouse Express are £49.99, Tecno are £31.94 (inc delivery).

Warehouse Express got back to me to confirm that they would price match and reduce by a further 25% of the difference, bringing it down to £26.43, including Next Day Citilink delivery. :whistling:

Be quick though, as Tecno upped their price by £15 within hours of the price match last time. :x

Id go for one of these if it wasn't for the one strap design, not so easy for someone with boobages
#10
im333, I've got a Crumpler Ben's Pizza bag for my 350D and it is great. I've got the camera with the kit 18-55mm, a 50mm and a 200mm lens as well as memory cards, etc. in it and it fits perfectly.

That made me LOL! Just use it as normal bag, don't have to show your man boobies with it :thumbsup:

Thanks david, i'm now leaning towards your offer!
#12
What if you have girl boobies? I was hoping for all these threads after so many people got the camera. I think I may go with the Camera Armor though so I can throw it into a normal rucksack.
#13
Still the same, I had a school bag similar to that of this design I used to wear it as a normal bag.

Me too but the baps got in the way. Shame as this bag looks great and could mean I don't need to get a case for it.
#16
I think mine's an XL. Plenty of room and loads of dividers. Very well made too. Get the feeling I could swing on mine and I'm a very dainty 13 and a half stone. I would recommend Crumpler all day long.
#17
great bag.. picked one up from tecno.co.uk a few weeks back.

Lots of added extras i didnt know about such as hidden attached rain cover, lens cloth, memory card holder.. worth £30 and saves you from needing more than one case/bag.

How much room is there in these rucksacks for other stuff?

Well if you have a fairly standard dslr/fixed lens camera then that takes about 60% of the lower compartment.. leaving enough space for chargers/films/filters etc... and then the top compartment will easily fit another lens...

So a fair bit.. totally depends on the size of your kit :giggle:

You are the man. I am currently using this to try and get a lens. Once approved I will add to the Canon thread as this will be a good purchase. :thumbsup:

I have the 200 version which is slightly bigger but I get my 350d with battery grip and the Canon 28-135 IS lens fitted on the front of it. Also in the main compartment I have room for 4 other lenses including 2 zoom lens 75-300mm IS which are slightly longer than a non IS 300mm. In the outside pocket I keep a couple of filters, lens brush and user guide but it is a great compartment to use for keys etc when you are out and about so I don't put much in there. Then in the top pocket I have about 10 Cokin filters along with the holder, 6 compact flash cards, my ipod camera adapter, AA battery converter for the grip and a couple of other filters so it holds a lot!!

Not sure how much smaller the 100 is width wise but gives you an idea of what can be stuffed into one of these style bags!

As mentioned though the Crumpler bags are great as well, especially if you don't want an over the shoulder strap getting in the way :) I had a Crumpler bag for my lappy and they are excellent. Benn thinking about getting a small one just to use when I only need the camera with me.
#22
i took a look at the 200 version....and they look quite petite...so if ur wanting to put some other non camera related stuff in there then it will come in usefull.

ive opted for the 200 slingshot....roughly £40 notes.

Not really, this more a camera bag mounted as a backpack than a rucksack which can carry a camera.

Thanks for the replies.

So I think a crumpler is a better bet. Having posted the XXL earlier for £32, I have found this place selling the XXXL for £26.99 and the XXL for £23.99

http://www.westendcameras.com/

Unfortunately their website seems to lack a 'Proceed to Checkout' option so probably best for those who live in London

Got mine from http://www.we-sell-crumpler.co.uk/ which appears to be part of the world of bags network. I'm sure I got mine for cheaper than they're selling for now but still cheap and very quick delivery. Well worth forking out for anyway.
#27
Yep, they have the XXL for £32 in a lot nicer colours than the place I posted above.
