Summary: After a long search, I believe that I have finally found the perfect bag for my photography needs. Even thought the bag is relatively compact, I can fit the following equipment (1 DSLR, 2 Zooms, 2 Primes, 1 iPad) in it: - Nikon D90 with attached Zoom lens (AF-S Nikkor 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G DX ED VR).
Summary: The bag easily holds a DSLR with normal zoom lens plus telephoto lens and spare battery and cards. I also have plenty of room for the polariser and remote release. It will also take my mini Ipad.
Pros: Comfortable Strap, Good Protection, Light Weight
Summary: Purchased to accommodate a Micro Four Thirds outfit, body, four lenses, bits and pieces, and an iPad, for a holiday this stylish shoulder bag exceeded expectations, especially acknowledging the very reasonable price.
Pros: Comfortable Strap, Good Protection, Lots Of Pockets And Features
Summary: I was looking for a messenger type bag for travelling, that allows me to take my Canon EOS-M and accessories along with an iPad.I prefer the iPad Mini, but there is sufficient space for a full size iPad. There is also space in the camera compartment for a DSLR and a couple of lenses. The bag also has a rear sleeve for documents and side pockets for items such as a water bottle.
Pros: Comfortable Strap, Good Protection, Ipad Pocket, Lots Of Pockets And Features
Summary: There are a lot of camera bags on the market around this price but the Event Messenger beats most of them. It does exactly as advertised - DSLR+zoom and two additional lenses, with room for iPad and a useful pocket on front. It's light and durable and perfect for loading a selection of camera equipment if the intention is to walk a considerable distance from the car, leaving the rest behind - for example - event and street photogaphy.
Summary: The bag itself is what you expect from Lowepro with a good construction & is suited to a secondary light travel bag.Be aware that you can't fit as much inside as the Lowepro 'bag finder' suggests & lens hoods are a bit snug. Also the iPad section is very tight with any kind of case on the iPad or when you've got the main section of the bag 'full', I personally don't put mine in as I feel it too tight.
Pros: Durable, Lightweight, Lots Of Storage, Quick access, Waterproof
Cons: Ipad Is A Very Snug Fit, Not As Big As You Think, Strap Unconfortable
Summary: I carry a Nikon D90/35mm lens, an SB900 flash and a 70-300mm lens, with a few spare batteries. It's a tight fit and and makes the bag bulge a bit, as well as weighing heavily on the shoulder. It is however a comfortable bag to carry due to the large padding on the strap and has pockets in all the right places, so a well designed bag (but not for a camera and 2-3 lenses as described... 2-3 without a camera body possibly).
