(From company literature) Tamrac 5683 Digital Zoom 3. The Digital Zoom 3 was specifically designed for digital SLR cameras like Canon's Digital Rebel with a lens attached up to 3½". It uses Dual Foam Technology™ that combines closed-cell foam to provide maximum shock protection with open-cell foam for vibration dampening and a custom fit. A full-coverage top provides excellent protection by combining our EasySqueeze™ buckle for quick access with a zipper for back-up security and weather protection. The front accessory pocket has Tamrac's U.S. patented Memory & Battery Management System™, which uses red flags to identify available memory cards and batteries from ones that are used up. A Windowpane-Mesh™ pocket organizes other small accessories. A smooth nylon pocket in the lid holds lens-cleaning paper. In addition to the EasyGrip™ carrying handle, the Digital Zoom 3 has an adjustable, removable shoulder strap and belt loop to carry it hands-free on a belt.

Pros: small, light, very durable
Cons: shoulder strap doesn't swivel; tends to flip upside-down while carrying; SLRs will only fit with one, small lens

This bag is very light but strong, and holds up to a lot of use. A couple of minor annoyances though: the shoulder strap doesn't pivot at the attachments, so it gets twisted easily, and the bag often flips upside down when I'm carrying it.


It says it's for SLRs as well as digital zooms, but it really will only fit an SLR with one small prime or very compact zoom lens (and it has to be attached). Best for use with a digital zoom camera rather than an SLR.
