• […] I got one a couple of months ago and I love mine! Fits an array of gear, both in the camera compartment and then upper top-loading backpack part, the Photo Sport 200 is the pack I’ve been waiting for. Wish hard enough and maybe you’ll get on too. (Check out my full review of this pack here.) […]

    Have you tried the chest packs? I have this one and it has been amazing! Put the gear in your backpack but leave the camera on your chest for easy access!

  • Dan Bailey says:

    Matt. Yes I’ve seen those packs up close, but don’t think they’re for me. I don’t actually like to wear the camera on my chest, I prefer it more at my waist, which is why I love the old Photoflex Chest Pouch so much. That said, maybe I need to just get over my issues and try something new. Thanks for the tip!

    In your video, I noticed that you no longer put the camera in your pack when you had the 80-200 lens on it. Does it fit in the pack with that bigger lens?

    Loved the outtakes at the end. Thanks for a very informative blog.

  • Dan Bailey says:

    No, the camera won’t fit in the camera compartment with that bigger lens on, but if you take the lens off, that and the camera will still fit in the compartment.

    I have a carbon fiber 3 section tripod and wondered what your advice would be for how to deal with carrying it on light photo treks since this pack and other smaller Lowepro packs do not have any tripod compression straps or systems?

  • Dan Bailey says:

    Tim, I strap mine onto the side of the pack and slip one of the legs down through the side compression straps. Works fine for a small-medium tripod or light stand.

    I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

    Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

    You have done it again! Another triumph.

    Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

    Thank you, Dan.
