    Just purchased my first SLR camera (moving up from a simple point and shoot) and was guided to this site by a friend to find an appropriate bag to carry it in. How cool would it be to win this one!! Thank you for providing the opportunity!

    As usual, got more gear and the Slingshot 100 is way to small now. Need a larger backpack with room for the gear and a laptop. I’m not considering any other brand, since the slingshot 100 could withtsand a rough treatment, I’m all Lowepro.

    There’s always a need for another bag. I’d love to add this to the collection.

    I have been through my share of bags, some ok, some good and some just not worth mentioning, then i bought a Lowpro SS200 SLINGSHOT 200 AW Backpack Camera Bag and it was amazing, perfect for the work i was doing which was nightlife photography and photoshoots too on a daily basis it’s so comfy too.
    However, now i have moved up the ladder in photography work and i require more from a bag, i need one that i can fit loads more lenses and flashes into and that will last me a long time witht he quality of a lowpro, this is why i would enjoy winning the free bag friday bag this week 🙂
