If you are a current SlingShot user you won’t be disappointed with this updated model and if you’ve not purchased a camera bag yet, I’d certainly recommend adding this to your shopping list.

The interior is big enough to contain a decent sized DSLR like a D200 with a telephoto lens, without it getting cramped, the slingshot action is a work of inspiration, and the usual LowePro quality means that the bag will keep your photo goodies nice and dry.
