Street Shooting with the Lowepro Event Messenger 150

By October 11, 2012Design Room, Products

The Event Messenger shoulder bag is stylish, low profile, and perfect for a day of shooting in the city. I typically carry an iPad, Camera Connection Kit, Canon 60D with 15-85mm zoom, and a handful of accessories. The dedicated tablet sleeve keeps the iPad secure, but accessible while on the go.

And now the Event Messenger (all 3 sizes) is available in black as well as Mica. With either style, you’ll look great as you duck into a coffee shop to transfer your pictures to the tablet, then post your favorites online. Here’s the workflow I typically use with my Event Messenger 150.

One other very nice thing about the Event Messenger: it’s affordable. I’ve seen the 150 model selling in the neighborhood of $65 US, and the larger 250 model around $75 US. Check one out next time you’re visiting your local photo specialty store.
