Lowepro SlingShot - digital bag ready to go
Press release:
Lowepro has announced a new addition to its popular SlingShot AW range- the brand new SlingShot 300 AW. The SlingShot range is designed specifically for today’s digital photojournalists, news and sports photographers or anyone who needs quick access to their equipment.

All products in the SlingShot range use a unique sling design to go from carry mode to ready mode in just seconds. Carried comfortably on the back, this larger design has a new quick pull handle to enable you to rotate it around your body easier, allowing quick access to your camera.

Offering superior protection for camera equipment, the new SlingShot 300 AW is designed to comfortably carry a professional digital SLR body with a 70-200 f/2.8 lens attached, plus 5-6 extra lenses or flash units and has a full access lid to make loading it quick and easy.

With an ergonomic shoulder strap and padded waist belt, designed to evenly distribute weight and reduce movement when carrying heavy loads, the latest SlingShot also features unique zipper-stop buckles to prevent the bag from fully opening while accessing equipment. This allows photographers to easily work from the bag while wearing it, and provides 180° access while packing.

Loaded with features, the SlingShot 300 AW boasts an All Weather Cover, a built-in memory card pouch, a micro fibre LCD protector, Hypalon® SlipLock attachment loops and plenty of other amenities to provide the greatest ease of use and comfort meaning that the SlingShot 300 AW allows you to focus on your shooting and not finding your equipment.

Now celebrating 40 years of experience in the photographic market, all Lowepro products carry a lifetime warranty, so you can be sure of top quality protection for your gear - year after year.

Available from March, the SlingShot 300 AW is priced from around £99.

Will somebody please tell these bag manufactures who call them "bags for pros" that we do not have time to change lenses, just make the bag hold 2 bodies with 1 wide angle and one zoom fitted and then come back !
99% use 2 cameras !

Looks to me like with a bit of rearranging you could fit a second body with a wide angle in here and still have room for two flash guns

I have had a Slingshot 200AW for about a year now. Its absolutely brilliant. It holds a canon 30D,with 17-85 lens and food fitted, a 10-20mm lens and a canon 70-200 f2.8, in the main compartment. There's also a surprising amount of space in the other 2 pockets. Tucked away also is a pullout rain cover. I'm now going to move up to the 300AW

Does the sideways position of the camera put any stress on the lens mount? There doesn't seem to be much else supporting the camera body.

Everything fits snugly and imho it well supported

I get a 1Ds, 24-70, 16-35 and 70-200/2.8 into a 200 (just) and find it ideal If I don't want all the gubbins like grads etc.

The 300 looks a bit too big IMO as I think the 200 with that load is about at the limit for comfortably sliding it. Once the weight gets up to full outfit level I really think two straps ia a must.
