    Great Bag for DSLR!

    Excellent camera bag for my Full Frame Canon DSLR! Also it's a great bag to put inside another bag or backpack! I was looking for a DSLR bag, not too big or small.. this Lowepro Format 160 camera bag is just right! I wanted a bag big enough so i can rest my DSLR flat or sitting on it's normal position, i didn't want to let it rest on the lens, nor did i want it to rest on the screen, both seemed like such awkward or abusive positions. This bag was just wide enough, not tight or loose, just a nice snug feel! I still have room to add a lens or accessories on top of the camera, but personally i don't/wouldn't. The thought of anything on top the camera turns me off! Two small pockets outside of the bag and one in the front.. i don't use any of them though! Great if you need it! The great thing about this camera bag is that it fits nicely inside both my backpacks without being too bulky, it fits inside my Manfrotto Bravo30 and Empire backpacks. I'll use this bag to be in another bag/backpack especially for hikes/trekking and adventuring when i don't want to carry by hand or by shoulder strap, who hikes like that anyways? My hands have to be free and clear! I usually keep my Canon camera stored in my Canon 300DG bag when at home or when i go to a classy function, or when i simply want to have that "pro" look. Overall it's an inexpensive, strong, well made, medium to large sized bag. The cushion pads inside feel pretty good, zippers feel like they won't get detached or get stuck. Purchased this at my local Best Buy for about $30. Well worth the price, definitely worth it as a great case for outdoor adventures. Pictures attached are of the Lowepro Format 160, with my DSLR resting on it's normal position inside. The other photo is of my camera bag/backpack setup. It consists of my Manfrotto Bravo 30 and Empire backpacks, also a Canon 300DG duffle style gadget bag, older Lowepro and Case Logic cam bags.. Lowepro is a great company while being inexpensive versus being "cheap", Would buy again if needed!

    The :Format 160 was capable of holding my Canon Rebel T3i and a 55-250 mm lens as well as an assortment of lens caps and storage cards. The strap is a bit uncomfortable but is easy to switch out for a different one and does not seem to be much of an issue. the bag has a number of zippers and pouches for storing all sorts of useful things as mentioned above. when walking the bag feels comfortable and doesn't take up much space. easy to access interior. the bag has adjustable dividers inside it which are padded and held in place with sturdy velcro. the bag itself is decently padded and even after accidentally banging it on rocks a few times the equipment inside was unscathed. .Looks sleek and discrete. Overall a useful bag with a surprising amount of storage for it's size.

    Versatile Camera Bag

    I bought this bag almost 2 years ago and it was a great purchase. I use it for my Canon SX510 HS camera and it's great. Plenty of room inside, the Velcro dividers easily divide it up for whatever size camera you have. I have my camera in the center raised from the bottom to prevent possible damage, and have 2 side compartments using the dividers for storing the bag strap and the camera strap, a spare camera and a lens cleaning cloth. The zippered lid has a zippered storage compartment which can hold batteries, memory cards, pens, and other small items. The elastic pockets on the sides stretch out to hold more things, I think they could hold a soda can even. There is a zippered pocket on the front for more small items, plus an open pocket on the back. The bottom has a rugged tread to keep the bag slightly raised and protected. What more can I say, it's great.

    Does the job but small

    Its a simple bag, inside zipper on flap and some velcro padded pieces inside to separate compartments. It gets the job done but just a little too small for my needs. It can only really comfortably fit the camera with a small lens and maybe one more medium sized lens and a small lens. Any more than that and it is difficult to get to them or put back the camera. Okay if you only are taking a couple lenses on your shoot but if you are using it to travel and want to take more equipment it is not suitable. I would probably not recommend to a friend, tell them to get something a bit bigger. Its actually taller then my last case but not as wide. I would opt for a wider bag, even if giving up some height. But i also got if for free with the black friday sale so it will have to do for now.

    A Good Bag For DSLR & Some Essentials

    Posted

    I own several Lowepro bags and all are excellent quality. The "Format 160" can hold a Nikon D7000 body (a fairly large DSLR) with an 18-140mm lens attached plus, a 50-300mm lens, a Nikon external flash, 2 camera batteries and charger, some video and USB cables, a few filters and lens caps, and other small items such as memory cards and the like. Of course depending on how much you want to carry you may need to experiment a bit with placement of your items. So all things considered, not bad for a fairly compact bag! If you need more space, Lowepro makes dozens of bags in all shapes and sizes. I also like Case Logic's products, particularly the "SLRC 203" which holds a lot more gear and includes a quick-release tripod fastener.

    nice step up from a point and shoot camera

    Posted

    We've loved our Canon point and shoot cameras so when we decided to step up to something more advanced this was an easy choice. The basic features are very similar to Canon's point and shoot camera's so if you are familiar with Canon this is pretty easy to start using right away. This came as package with two lenses, a case, and a 16 gb memory card so it was a pretty good deal. We have not yet had a chance to play with any of the advanced features but based on our experience with other Canon products we expect them to to be pretty straightforward. The only downside I can see is the camera requires a special battery pack so I'd recommend getting a second one as a backup. Pictures and video are crisp and clear and better quality than I'm used to with my point and shoot.

    It's a bag; nothing special.

    If I didn't get it for free, I wouldn't have bought it. The internal storage is awkward. The velcro panels are 100% removable, but don't work tremendously well at creating walls for other parts, such as additional lenses. If you have a larger lens, you can probably store the camera with the lens attached, but are likely unable to store anything else inside. There is a zipper pouch on one exterior side that creates a bulky interior if anything larger than a few papers are put inside it. Even the manual is to big. The outer side and rear pockets do not close in any way whatsoever. I do like the interior zipper pouch on the opening flap, though. If you can get it for free, get it. If not, look for something else.

    Bag comfortably holds everything

    I did have a different bag before this one that was more of a backpack style. It made me nervous having my (very) expensive camera on my back, out of sight. So, I switched to this bag and am completely in love with it! I feel safe with my Nikon camera nestled in it. And, it's big enough to hold all of the cords, lenses (I have two), and even my little Nikon Coolpix, so I'm always ready to capture that perfect picture. Everything I need is at my fingertips, and easy to take out or put back. The strap is comfortable on my shoulder and is adjustable for crossbody wear if desired. With all that it holds, it looks surprisingly small, but looks are very deceiving for this bag.
