Sneak Peek of the Lowepro Scope Photo Travel 350 AW in the Field

By May 1, 2011Products

We traveled to the Florida Birding and Photo Fest to test our new Scope Photo Travel 350 AW. Among those giving us feedback was Melissa Southern of Next Step Photography Workshops based in Raleigh, North Carolina. Here’s a short movie of Melissa with the Scope Photo Travel.

The camera she uses in this bag is a Nikon D300s. Also, as you’re looking inside the Scope Photo Travel, keep in mind that the design allows you to open the bag in dusty or wet conditions and retrieve a piece of equipment while the other pieces stay clean and dry in their individual compartments. Melissa begins the video by showing you the bag configured in “travel” mode (airlines, etc.). The still image at the end of the movie shows the Scope Photo Travel reconfigured for “working” mode with the camera now in the center compartment (with zoom on) and the scope out for use. There are many interior design options with this backpack.

We anticipate the the Scope Photo Travel will be available in late June 2011 for around $249 US. I’ll keep you posted on our Facebook Fan Page.

    Hi all

    Would it be possible to get the dimensions of each compartment separately?

    I’m concerned about whether it would be realistic to put together a spotting scope and a 300mm f4 (obviously not attached to the dslr of course) in this bag


    BTW that’s exactly the bag I’ve been waiting for long for my birding activities, many thanks to the designers
