  • Summary: I use this product mainly as a camera sleeve for my messenger bag. It's roughly same size when full as the Crumpler 3 mill $ home bag, and holds much more. Crumpler holds - D90 camera w/ 18-105 zoom, lens pen, couple of SD cards and lens pen. Tamrac holds - D90 with 18-105 attached, 28 f 2.8 prime lens, 80-200 4.5-5.6 zoom, filter, SD cards, memory cards, and card reader.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Lightweight, Small but holds a ton, Strong Construction, Well Padded

Resonable for Equipment

LP, PhotoAlley.com

  • Summary: This particular bag fits a Nikon D60 with a 18-55mm lens on it without a problem. It has lots of little nooks and pockets for storing filters, cables and other small equipment. However, if you do have a larger lens (e.g., 70-300mm) it will not fit into this bag. But, the company does make a side lens holder (size large) that attaches to the side of the bag.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Lightweight, Strong Construction, Well Padded

Just right

  • Summary: I've had this bag for a few day now. I recieved it the same day as my Nikon D40. It's just exactly what I wanted. I knew from previous experience experience with my 35mm camera that less is more. I don't want a bag that's any larger than it has to be and this one isn't. It holds my D40 and has roon for a second lens and external flash. The front pocket hold and extra battery, memory cards and even thge AC charger.

Einzigartig in ihrer Preisklasse

xXMegamiXx, Ciao
16 January 2009
  • Summary: Ich habe mir im November letzten Jahres eine digitale Spiegelreflexkamera gekauft und suchte nun eine gute Kameratasche. Meine Ansprüche: stabil, robust, vor Feuchtigkeit schützend und Platz für mindestens noch ein weiteres Objektiv. Mehr als 40 Euro wollte ich dafür aber noch nicht ausgeben. In einem Fotogeschäft habe ich dann die Tamrac Explorer 5501 entdeckt.
  • Pros: viel Platz, gut gepolstert, viele Taschen, guter Schutz vor Witterung
  • Cons: Klickverschluss oft schwer zu öffnen
