I’m celebrating FINALLY getting this photography blog/page up and running.
To thank you for your patience, and to welcome those of you who are new here, I’m hosting some giveaways this week!
Winners to this week’s contests/giveaways will be picked randomly and announced on Wednesday, October 10th.
I confess to be on a never-ending hunt for the “perfect” camera bag.
Of course, there is no such thing.
Different situations require completely different gear (and therefore completely different ways to transport that gear).
Transporting gear is a lot more challenging for me due to my bum arm.
I’ve been searching for a “smallish” bag for awhile.
I have several big bags.
There are many times when I’m shooting locally and I don’t need to take a lot with me.
The idea of having a bag I could use on “just” my good shoulder attracted me.
(The Sling-O-Matic can be worn on either shoulder and alternated between the two.)
I also like the idea of being able to swing the pack forward to use it, without needing to take it off.
I decided to try out the smallest bag in the series, the Sling-O-Matic 10.
The Sling-O-Matic 10 isn’t made to carry much gear.
To be honest, that’s what I like about it.
If I have a big bag, I usually bring a lot more with me than I really need.
A smaller bag forces me to “go light.”
When the bag first arrived, I thought it looked sort of like a small ice cooler.
It’s very boxy.
It isn’t ugly, but it certainly didn’t wow me with its looks.
But then, I discovered how much this “little” bag can hold.
It’s the smartest little bag I’ve come across.
I’ve kind of fallen in love with it.
The pockets and compartments are all in the “right” places, making it easy to use from day one.
I’m amazed at how much I can actually get into it.
(I can even attach my tripod to it.)
I really like being able to work directly out of the bag without needing to take it off.
In the last couple months, I find myself using the Sling-O-Matic 10 exclusively for my “around town” photography.
If you’re looking for a small bag, this one’s pretty awesome.
I only have one to give away!
