The Lowepro Nova Series dSLR Camera Bag

post-26941-1128689744.jpg

  • Capacity: 1?2 SLRs, 3?5 lenses, flash and accessories
  • Size (Interior): 11.5W x 6D x 7.75H in. / 29 x 15 x 19.5 cm
  • Outer fabric: water-resistant 600D TXP? and 600D TXP? ripstop

Lowepro have been at the top of the camera case market for quite some time, producing innovative, spacious and extremely protective cases for the vital contents it's users put inside.

Lowepro produce cases not only for dSLR's, but for a whole range of products, spanning the complete camera range, and digging into Laptops and other personal electronics. A company with 30 years experience, and the ear to understand and produce what the consumers want, Lowepro are at the peak of their evolution.

Today, I'm reviewing the Lowepro Nova 4 - Although there are a range in this series spanning from 1 to 5. This range is merely a difference in size. The Nova 4 has the capacity to store 1 or 2 SLR's, 3 or 5 Lenses, a Flash gun and other apparal. I managed to squeeze in my Canon EOS 20D, Canon Speedlite 580EX, Canon 50mm Prime f/1.8 Lens and other accessories such as CF Card, Cleaning utilities and manuals.

The Lowepro Nova 4 bag has the astounding ability to be customised in any way you wish, with it's interchangable slides all connected via velcro.

I have set mine up in the following way, which allows the contents of my Lens, Flash & Canon EOS 20D

The bag has an amazing array of features, one which I find most pleasing, is the adjustable strap, this strap is built with the user in mind. It's fully padded at the top, to ensure any heavy equipment puts as minimum strain to the users shoulder as possible, as well as the Lowepro logo embroidered into it.

The front compartment is another brilliant key to this bag, as the amount of protection it gives to anything vital you may hold inside, is unbelievable. The front compartment also holds the waterproof cover to allow for mobility in rain.

thanks for the review

I am actually looking for something bigger than my lowepro toploader2 that I use to store my D50 with the default lens.

I need something bigger to bring my other lenses

*GASP* An adjustable shoulder strap? Good god. How ingeniously innovative! With technological wonders such as this, I can only imagine what they'll come up with next! And don't you dare tell us it features pockets and a zipper too? Ooo.... I'm feeling giddy. I had best take a lie down.
