Looking at the Lowepro website, looks like a new version has just been released - the SlingShot 102:

No I believe the AW102 which the other poster is reffering to has the ability to carry a tripod.

good price but this bag is allot smaller than you may expect ; see one in the flesh before buying is my advice (I did & brought a 300aw from xbay instead)

Yes could be, but it all depends on the requirements of the individual, its specified to hold a dslr with a lens attached + 1 to 2 lens.
But as you said its best to know how big it really is, theres a fair few reviews on youtube of this bag, so it should hopefully help.

not inside it, but it has large loops on the outside that you can slide one of the legs in to and carry it.

If you've got a larger DSLR then you would need a bigger bag. I have this one and it can fit a Sony A300 with battery grip attached, as well as a few lenses.

That'll do the trick! Ordered - cheers

Photography is such an expensive hobby...now to convince the gf that this another thing that I really need and will help improve my pics.:-D

crikey and to think i bought the lowpro 200 slingshot 2 years ago for £26
slingshots are great, didnt like it much at first but you get used to it
#15
as the other poster pointed out the slingshot 100 is a fairly small bag, only enough room for 1 other (short) lens or flashgun (and misc items like spare battery, filters).

Most people would be better off with the larger slingshot 200

alternatively i can recommend the flipside range, the space is more usable IMHO and rests better on your shoulders as you have 2 straps instead of one

agree, 200 is best all rounder - 100 imo is too small and 300 too big.....
if you need the 300 you may consider getting a decent rucksack type from lowepro but then you dont get the verstiality of the sling element...oh well
#18
It is a very small bag. Its ok for camera/lens plus one other lens but not for much else. I would never think of attaching a tripod to it due to the angle it sits on your back. Its good for specific jobs or if you just like to take a camera for a day but not one for a serious or professional user.

Looking at the photo on the Lowepro website,it will carry a monopod,I think a tripod would be too bulky.

I have this bag, with a D60+35mm lens attached, a 70-300 lens, and a 17-55 kit lens. It all fits in, just. Great bag though- hot.

Agreed, I have just sold my Slingshot 300 as it was too big. By the time it was filled it was just too heavy and cumbersome and didn't easily slide around like they are supposed to. The 200 would be best for a hobbyist, the 100 probably better for a smaller dlsr and more casual photographer.

That's put my mind at rest. I ordered one yesterday but after reading these comments here began to get a little concerned that my 500D, 18-55 plus 75-300 wouldn't even fit! :thumbsup:

This is ideal for an aid to carry your camera by itself (with perhaps a flash OR a short lense) but I bought a Niko 70-300VR and it would not fit in the bag without some creative packing and was about to burst at the seams.

I got one of the slightly larger rucksack bags for not a lot more and it is much more functional as I cant get both lenses and a flash gun in to it with space for the planned Macro or wide angle.

The 100 I still keep if I am just going out with only the camera and 1 lense, not sure I would want much more in it anyway since it is all the weight across one shoulder.

Really? I have the D90 with the 18-105 and can only just squeeze in the the 70-300VR but its a pain in the ass and the have to swap the inners around dependant on what lens is fitted at the time. I cant imagine gettings another lense in anywhere (unless you stick it in the top part but I have the battery charger there)

Months ago, Sligshot ws my only choice. But after reading, I have Flipside in mind too!

Anyone here have both and can share your experience? Thanks .:)
#26
I have a 200 and 300. The 200 is used daily and find it I a good compact bag and hold a D3 with 17-50 attatched, 70-200 both in the main compartment (a bit of a squeeze though) , flash in the top zip section and a spare camera battery and 8aa batteries in the front pocket. I haven't had back problems since buying one about 4-5 years ago as it is a bad habit to lug everything around in a billingham.

i've only used the slingshot in store but i've been using the flipside 200 for sometime and recently upgraded to the 400 (possibly a bit too bulky but all the space i'll need)....

the slingshot is quicker to access your camera but the flipside is better for swapping lenses - as it's easier to access all your lenses and provides a large stable platform to rest/drop off your lenses during the swap - also the space in the flipside is more usable (the slingshot only uses around 2/3 of the space for camera/lenses and the remaining 1/3 for misc) whereas you have full access to the space in a flipside

Pretty much agree with the above - I got a flipside 300 after realising the slingshot was just too small very quickly .

There is also much better security as no one can access your pack when it is on your back (e.g. busy street, tube etc etc)

great price for an awesome bag! i have this to carry my d80 plus 50mm and it works a treat. good bag if you don't intend to carry around a lot of kit with you.

This bag is deceptively small as you can pack a surprisingly amount of equipment in it, when I looked at instore I wasn't going to buy it but then when I saw what people were managing to fit in it I decided to give it a go. For a while I was regularly carrying an Olympus E-3 (fairly hefty camera), 12-60mm F2.8-F4, 50-200mm F2.8-F3.5, 7-14mm F4, 1.4 TC plus a pair of batteries and memory cards. I assumed it wouldn't last long as this was clearly more than it's meant to carry but it's stiill in one piece. It can't take a large telephoto lens though, at the moment I normally have the D700 + 24-70mm, GH1 + 20mm and the Nikon 50mm F1.4G with little room for anything else.

My only issue with this bag is that with that amount of weight in it the single strap can be uncomfortable but that's going to be an issue with the larger slingshots as well. I have a good Olympus backpack from Olympus themselves which can carry a lot of equipment but think I'll have a look at the Flipside as it looks sleeker.
