Think Tank Sling-O-Matic 30 Unboxing And Review 2


I never thought that I would give that much attention to a camera bag rather than just walk into the next store, see if it probably fits my camera with some other stuff and then just buy it.

After shooting a little more intensive lately, and seeing my gear grow, I learned that I have to give this a more serious thought.

There are a couple of demands I had on a new camera bag as you can see in the list below this video.

  1. I wanted a bag that fits my camera with the 70-200 2.8 mounted and would prefer the lens hood in position so that I can take it out and shoot without a hassle.
  2. It had to be a sling back that I could easily wear over my left or right shoulder. Switching from one side to the other shouldn’t be a hassle as well.
  3. It should be as small as possible yet firm. I tried more thick and fluffy sling backs and even though they were convenient, they just were too large.
  4. The camera should always be on top when I sling it to my front, no matter if I would wear the bag over my left or right shoulder.
  5. Thinking on my visits to my Brooklyn sister I wanted to have one bag that can take all the stuff I normally took in little bags, stuffed in one larger. Plus the laptop bag of course.
  6. For obvious reasons it shouldn’t wear the name of one of the large camera brands on it.

The Think Tank Sling-O-Matic 30 fulfilled all this needs and more as you can see in my video. I really thought a while about purchasing it for a while as I wasn’t a friend of spending that amount of money for a camera/laptop bag but I already see that this bag will be a very good companion for a long time.
