Bestbuy Canada is having a great deal on Lowepro photo runner 100, the beltpack.

http://www.bestbuy.ca …a-lphb2010a/10155127.asp​x (external link)

it is a CAD$40 kit, including a photo runner 100, a slik compact tripod, a lowepro pouch and a lowepro water bottle. as a reference B&H has lowepro photo runner for $44 and the tripod for $29.

I am quite interested because I need a beltpack to hold my 5d markii with a 70-200 F4 attached and this deal sounds too good to be missed. (yes i am in Canada and this kind of deal doesnt happen quite often :))

the specification from the Lowepro site says it can hold one DSLR with 80-200 attached. but one of the review I found on internet says it is small for a DSLR.

Anybody has this bag and tried if it can hold a 5d mark ii with 70-200 F4 attached?

thanks,

Wouldn't waste my money on that set up, but from the specifications it will probably hold your camera and a small lens attached. Its a very odd shape for a camera bag. The size says it is about 14"w x 14"h x 8"d
Width 35.63 cm
Height 35.63 cm
Depth 20 cm

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

I don't think you would want to put that size of a camera pouch on the side of your pants. The size is approximately the same size as a steering wheel in your car but really thick.

Take Care,

After looking at the pictures of the bag, it doesn't look to be that big. It definitely doesn't look 14" x 14" x 8". I think they have the size listed wrong? Either way, you still may have a hard time wearing it around your waist.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

Just looked up the bag from B&H website and it said the bag size is:
Exterior Dimensions 12.6 x 6.3 x 8.8" (32 x 16.1 x 22.4cm) (WxDxH)
Interior Dimensions 10 x 4.5 x 7.7" (25.5 x 11.5 x 19.5cm) (WxDxH)

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

thank you Saint728.

I have a nova 200aw, a nova 170aw, and a fastpack 250 (all Lowepro). I am going to have a two weeks trip to California for sightseeing (SF, Yosemite, LA, etc). at first i thought i should just bring my fastpack 250. after tried to put everything in and walked a couple of miles, I felt it would be so hot to walk under bright sun with a backpack fully loaded. and it is not necessary to have all the gears with me all the time. i just need to decide one combination before I walk out for the day.

so i changed the idea to use my nova 200aw as the "transportation" bag to hold everything and I need a smaller one for "walk around" bag when i arrive my destination.

I tried to use 170aw as the walk around bag but feel it is still uncomfortable to use a should bag for a whole day walk. the situation got improved after i used the belt connection on 170aw. it's still at the bulky side though, plus it cannot hold my 5d2 + 70-200. (i got this 170aw for free when I bought my 5d2 kit from B&H to hold the 24-105 mounted)

so i think maybe a beltbag is actually better. and Lowepro website says the photo runner 100 is longer enough to hold a DSLR with 80-200 2.8 mounted. i just dont know if it has the right size for the body of the camera. a post i googled the OP said he could put his un-gripped 40D in to the bag. no other information.

I am hoping to get some first hand experience from users here. it appears this bag is not popular. there is no even an review in the sticked bag post.

Have a look at the Kata line. Hands free waist pack http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …ee_495_DL_Waist​_Pack.html (external link) and UL Torso Pack. http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …ri_318_UL_Torso​_Pack.html (external link)

Take Care,

checked Kata wasit pack, it's definitely cannot hold 5d mark II with 70-200 mounted - the longest side is short than that of my 170aw based on specification. I think i need 25cm or longer.

the lightri-318 - wooo - that is expensive - in Canada the price is $135 plus 13% tax...

but thanks for the suggestion!

Check out www.photoprice.ca (external link) they have some accessories such as bags so you can compare prices and do price matching. ;) You're likely to find some LowePro bags/packs. No Think Tank when I last looked. No Kata either. Great site providing a great service; they have helped me save money on every camera purchase for the last 3 years or so. Hat's off to them!
I know what you mean about Canadian costs. Domke and Think Tank prices are out of sight! (Though I hesitate to say that Photocreative in Mississauga offers Think Tank bags substantially cheaper than Henry's. So does The Camera Store in Calgary?
Last time I checked a Retro 20 was >$220 at Henry's. And add 13% tax to get it out the door...
I don't price Domke bags at Henry's anymore either.

thank you 2mnycars. photoprice.ca is one of my favorite site. they are very good in terms of cameras and lens. but their bag section seems very out-of-date.

Hey i did not know the Photocreative in Mississauga. thanks for share the information. all my bags were actually bought from Henry's, but not from their store. they have a trade show twice a year and some very good deals. my bags were all bought from the trade show and the price were lower than B&H price at the same time.

OK I guess i will just move ahead and try the photo runner out - best buy's return policy will be my plan B :)
