I (man) used a sling bag for some time but it gave me neck and shoulder problems due to the one sided load. I switched to the Lowepro Flipside Trek BP 250 AW and this is the best ever for me. A compartiment reachable from the outside like with a sling bag, large enough for my Nikon D7100 and accessories, separate compartimenten for clothing, food , papers, etc, plenty of straps, side pockets, weatherproof, not too big, comfortable . Just perfect.

You peeps don't let us have any fun at all. (jk, you know)

Snideness and sarcasm are so fun!

Maybe you should start a snide challenge then ... ;-)

Interesting, for sure.

How in the world did you even find it to renew it, prajaktapal??

Well, considering that there's only been 4 forum threads with active comments today, including this one, it's a good thing for bots! LOL

Probably a bot targeting keywords in the forum posts.

oh, I thought it was slime bags and women, always a hot topic.
05/13/2020 01:19:33 AM · #12
Ceriz sling bag for women is compact and trendy. This bag comes with straps that you can easily adjust. What's more, you can style the bag in many different ways wear it diagonally across your body, hang it on your shoulder or hide the strap and use it as a makeshift clutch; the choice is yours.

Her right one not the right on on the screen.
I know the hair is blinding you huh? LOL

Maybe time to calibrate your monitor? Another way to see it would be to look at your monitor at an extreme angle like from above. (In this case, it's probably a good thing the image is only 2-dimensional.)

In all seriousness, it's this extreme angle of viewing that made me see a lot of details in the dark shadows in images, and nudged me to calibrate my monitor. It's made a big difference in post-processing, and even more so, in voting.

I love my lowepro slingshot 200. I like the way the bag opens verses the way the Tamrac Velocity 9 opens. Although the 9 seems to have a more narrow profile. But like June I have a problem with it lifting and seperating my boobs. We were in the local camera store tonight and I was bitching about this exact topic and decided I was going to design a bag for women, and even make it another color besides blue and black. The other problem with the sling is there is no real place to attach the tripod, like my backpack did. Maybe we can all get together and design a female bag. May we should strap it on the front like a baby carrier..=)

I have gone through many a camera bag in the 2 years since I got serious abt my photography and I cannot say that I have yet to find a perfect solution. For now I deal with the boobie smasher

What do you keep in it? I'm just trying to figure out if it'll be big enough for me or if I should invest in a backpack style bag instead. I've got the Lowepro EX 180, but I now have a Lightsphere and once I get my flash, I'll be hard pressed to fit everything in the bag. I don't have breasts and I'm sorry for hijacking this thread for my own personal gain :)


I have the lightsphere, 580EX flash, 100mm macro, 50mm, 28-105mm, 5D, bag of batteries, 4 canon batteries, filter holder, filters, personal gear, cleaning gear...ummm..I think that is it...oh and sometimes I also include the Nikon D70s with the 50mm lens as well. Oh and I also have about 16GB of cards in there too. I forgot about them.

Yeah, sounds like there's plenty of room. Damn, I need to get a second job to afford all this stuff :(

I put the lightsphere and flash the the little triangular pocket at the top. its a tight fit but do-able. then i put my longest lens on the camera so it fits down the middle of the main compartment then theres space for 6 other thing, or is four? i dont know my husband has it right now. either way i carry some other lenses in most and lens cleaning kit in one. If i plan to do any macro ill just switch one lens with the extension rings, and then theres still a pocket in the front for the memory cards and cable remote. it all fits well.

Okies. Hubby took a couple of images for you all. I put three together to show you the front, side and back...on and off the bike to show you the fit. I hope it helps.

BTW...I am 5'7" and about 121 pounds...and it fits really well. Hubby on the other hand is 6' and 211 pounds and wider on the shoulders than me(obviously) and he finds the bag uncomfortable.

OK, I see it fits fine on you but we are built differently. I am 5'1.5", on the chubby side and I have slightly bigger breasts so maybe that's my problem. I will tak esome shots of me with the bag later and post them.

Thanks Melathia. But no...it doesn't slip anywhere...it has another strap that if you look closely on this image you will see the clip just under the right breast. This keeps it really still.



Cool. It *might* work, other than I really am quite unendowed and there may not be enough, well, whatever, to keep it in place... at least not when I go over really big bumps in the road. :-) But it just may be worth a shot, since I want something to walk around with as well as to carry a camera on the bike. I could always stick to the CamelBak for the bike, though.

Really do appreciate this thread and all the inputs! Well, except for the building something with duct tape part...

use a utility belt instead to hold your gear, more flexible :p
