    I would use this bag when I plan to photograph outdoors.

  • Have one of the original slings – carries my D7000, a couple of lenses, water, umbrella, etc, etc.
    I really love it, but it is getting rather worn from use as I wouldn’t be without it.
    I’m hoping to get a smaller camera (Fuji X-pro), and a new bag would go perfectly with this.

    When doing street photography you need to be light and fast, getting your equipment ready in
    one swift stroke helps getting the perfect shot. This Lowepro is perfect for walking around and still letting yourself concentrate on the shot a do not tengled with a backpack.
