Lowepro Flipside 200

Well, I liked the camera bag Flipside 400 (which I bought recently) so much, so I decided to buy another smaller Flipside bag. I bought the Flipside 200 to use when not carrying around so much (it’s ideal for bringing your DSLR with say 2 lenses and a flash).

It’s opened in the same way on the “back” side, it has support for attaching your tripod and a small pocket on the outside for your memory cards and a pocket on the other side for a small water bottle. 

You can actually carry quite much equipment in this bag, here I squeezed in a lot (a Nikon D80 with a 50mm attached, a 18-135 lens, a 18-55mm lens, the SB 800 flash, 2 filters with plastic boxes, an extra batteri for the camera, the charger for the camera and another camera with a 45mm lens attached), however packed to it’s limits :

I visited one local photo store today, and where told that the D300 would soon be discontinued (apparently they got this information from Nikon). Maybe it’s soon time for Nikon to release a successor… Funny, if this is true, I’ve been thinking a while if I should upgrade my current equipment (a Nikon D80) to a D300 or a D700 and I have not yet decided to which. Maybe it’s better to wait a while and see what Nikon releases next.

Decided to go to Scandinavian Photo today and buy a new bag for my camera.

I bought the Lowepro 400 Flipside AW bag, which is very cool and handy. It’s huge (so you can fit in a lot of camera equipment), it weatherproof (it has a built in rain cover) and it can not be opened when you’re carrying it (great as theft protection when carrying it around).

I also took a look at Nikon 105 VR Macro lens and Nikon’s 50mm 1.4 lens, and I went ahead and bought the 50mm. Nikon’s “new” 50mm 1.4 lens is very sharp (even at larger apertures), produces great colors and has a really nice bouquet. The only drawback is the auto focus, it struggles a bit low light conditions and could be faster.

Here are some images when using the 50mm for the first time, as well as some images of the Flipside 400:
