Purchasing and using a Digital SLR camera is a lot of fun; however, most standard bags that “come with” your purchase tend to be too large to sling over your shoulder and use while out in the field.
Holsters and sling bags have become quite popular as a means to carry your SLR camera with just the bare necessities.
As I searched for a bag, I wanted to find one that would protect my camera. There are a lot of very small bags out there that don’t offer a lot of padding and protection. I decided to go with the Tamrac 5766 Velocity 6x Compact Sling Pack.
The bag is small enough to be comfortable to wear. and easy to take with you to sporting events, on a hike, or to family events. The camera I use is the Nikon D60 which is more compact than other DSLR cameras, so check how your camera compares to the D60 in size. If the body of your camera is ridiculously big, it might not fit in the bag very well. The D60 I have had room to spare in the bag.
The bag can be slung across your chest and worn at the side of your hip or cinched up as sling/backpack.
The Tamrac bag is well designed and a great fit if you’re looking for a small bag that will hold your SLR.
