    Hey All!

    I havent posted on here in some time (a week, lol, seems like months though.) So thought I best get some reviews and opinons on something I bought tonight.

    I did my research and throughly looked for a shoulder bag which I could place my laptop in, use for press photography and weddings.

    So I found a bargain one in the sale for £89.99 with free postage. I bought a "LOWEPRO STEALTH REPORTER 650AW" (Picture Below)

    But I want to know if I have made the right choice. :)

    Lowepro is a great brand. I have couple of Lowepro models.

    It all depends on what you need. If you think the bag satisfies your need, I don't think you'd need another opinion. :)

    danalec is absolutely right (should probly just copy and paste this into every thread), all that matters is if it works for you. But I will second that Lowepro stuff is great, although I have no basis for comparison cause both my camera bags are lowepro...

    Very True! Well hopefully it should come soon so I can put it in to good use and see if It does what it says on the tin, as so to speak.

    I've got a few Lowepro bags and I love them. The AW rain cover is especally nice for when you get caught out in the rain.

    Bags are even worse than tripods. Soon you'll have a closetful of them and none will match your needs exactly.

    Ditto!

    I just bought my fourth bag, Lowepro of course, and as Doc says, none meet all my demands. Maybe I need another one!

    its a good bag for walking around, lowepro is are a good company and make quality products, but for weddings you will need more gear than you can fit in it
