    Lowepro Micro Trekker 200

    http://www.amazon.com/LOWEPRO-Trekker-200-Camera-Backpack/dp/B00007E7UN

    it's pretty :cool:

    fits my body, 55-200, 28-80, 50, flash, some filters + plenty room to spare for more flash or a couple more lenses (or one really big one)...plus there's lots of pockets and straps and fun stuff like that for accessories and personal gear

    cliffs: no more sore shoulders for me

    I will upgrade to this someday. The trekker will do for now.

    I think the micro trekker would look silly on someone as big as me, I'm going to be getting the Fastpack 350 just because it's big. :mamoru:

    I haven't had much to say lately, nothing particularly peaked my ire.

    yea, i'm 6'1", but i'm skinny so it only kind of looks funny.

    i tried out the fast pack 350 and i HATED it. the way the pouch opens on the side and everything just doesn't work well how you think it would

    Damn, that's the first negative thing I've heard about it.

    :dunno: maybe i'm just retarded, who knows. i liked that it could swing around and give you easy access to your lenses. but the way the flap was, it zippered around the side AND the front. and you couldn't pull much out with just the side unzipped....so you'd have to unzip the whole thing and risk spilling the whole shabang

    I'm fairly certain (according to the video) it's meant just to provide access to the camera and not the other shit in the camera compartment, the flap is there to keep everything else in while you grab your camera.

    exactly. that's almost useless to me. if i'm going to be pulling shit out really quickly i want to be able to grab my zoom and switch it out really fast.... or switch from zoom to wide angle.

    i dunno... i guess it's useful if you're just going somewhere and aren't sure if/when/what you'll photograph and won't be carrying your camera around your neck the whole time. :dunno:

    could be good for some. just like a 400mm is good for some.

    Lowepro makes a good bag but I never cared much for their inexpensive backpacks.

    Just got a Vertex 200 and it's quite nice.
