parang type ko din yung mini trekker classic.. yung slingshot kasi parang umaalog yung cam ko e pag nakalagay.

meron maliit na fissure sa main strap at hanggang sa lumaki yung sira.
madali naman rearrange yung padding nya sa loob at para hindi umaalog yung cam mo bossing..

sir Jo3pit

if you can can you post a pic of how you arranged the dividers sana with your cam inside (hopefully may P&S ka to do this).. kasi diba ang openning nito e galing sa side para pag naka slide sa harap mo yung bag e madaling buksan...nung nilagay ko yung cam ala toploader, walang umiipit dun sa sides nung camera na divider.. so yung lens lang ang may naka palibot na divider... hindi snug bandang taas e.

clean nga ang design ng lowepro... yung tamrac medyo... kakaiba hehehe..

any tamrac lovers?

sige post ko tom.  nightshift kase ako ngayon  :)

kasya yung 2 body sa slingshot. (d200 with 10-20mm & d70 with kit lense)
then yung cokin filter set naman at yung 50mm nasa upper pocket na lang.  ;D

ok rin yung d200 w/ 10-20mm +D70 body +400mm at +50mm sa slingshot. yun nga lang at siksikan na sila masyado. pero kung kinakailangan kong dalhin yung sb800 at sb600 flash. yung crumpler backpack na ang dinadala ko.

ok so you dont put extra lenses dun sa slingshot mo... two bodies kaya mukang snug...
sabagay i can put the body in one side and all the lenses sa other side no.. para di umaalog compared sa orig config nya na yung body ang asa gitna.
san kaya mura tong slingshot?


yung crumpler mo sir san mo nabili.

sir,

eto yung sinasabi kong space sa original config ng Slingshot...

pag isa lang cam mo... and you have 3 lenses and a flash... sakto na yung orig na config e.

pero may space like this:


di ko pa kasi nalalaro tong slingshot so di ko alam how to configure the pads inside... maybe you can show me how kung isang cam lang ang gamit pero wala tong space para di aalog alog.

tnx so much

what are your lenses?

here's what I can put in my ss200

350d with grip, 28-105 attached
18-55 mm
50 mm
70-200 2.8
sunpak flash


here what I do,

on the left side (red circle) I put the 70-200 with tripod mount and hood reversed. so the entire area is taken up by the lens. sa middle yung camera. the 50 and 18-55 takes the spaces at the right... di naman umaalog :)
