I’m impressed and if you take into consideration the street price then I’m very impressed. Add to that the bonus it has given me in how easy it's made my job recently and I’m happy to endorse it - should Tamrac wish me to.

For a photographer who likes to carry an iPad with a DSLR as well as a range of lenses and accessories the Zuma 7 is perfect. It is amazing how much can be packed in it and is comfortable to wear when fully loaded.
