  • Backpack Offer, Shipping Now

    Hi Folks,

    seems like the Pro Backpack is shipping. I read on another forum that a guy had received his. He posted a few shots and it looks good. He also noted that it can take the E-3 with Grip attached.

    In theory there's no difference between theory and practice but in practice there is.

    Good news Richard.

    Anyone who gets one - and doesn't want/need it - I'd be a very interested buyer

      I recieved mine today. That is in Denmark. Looks pretty good but it lacks the bottom support for at tripod but has two straps - one in the top and one in the middle. On that point the Lowepro Mini Trekker AW is better. Or maybe I just can't figure out how to mount the tripos:-(((

        Having got a Mini Trekker AW and looking at the Olympus backpack my choice, if having to fork out for one, would be to go for the Lowepro one.

          Send it over to me niels for research purposes re the tripos - I can't promise you will get it back though!
          Just like that - gone in a flash! Now in use.

            I've got a Lowepro Mini trekker which is ok but the access on the Oly one looks better than on the Lowepro. Maybe someone with both can do a little comparison post for us

              I'll compare them and let you know when I receive my Oly bag.

                  It's got one advantage over the Lowepro. It'll take the E-3 with the HLD-4 attached.

                  Thanks for the "offer" Berr1e. But I can always use it for carring Abbot Ale - my favorite tea substitute - home;-))) All these little rooms each take a can. maybe even two stacked...

                    Now you're talking, just enough room for a camera and a lens after all the tinnies have been stowed

                      It's bigger than the Mini Trekker AW. the inside is deeper and it's got room for a laptop.

                      And it'll easily take my E-3 with HLD-4 and ZD ED50/2.0, ZD 11-22/2.8-3.5, ZD 14-54/2.8-3.5, ZD ED50-2002.8-3.5, EC14, EX25, FL-36, Sigma 30/1.4 plus spare battreies and cards and whatever needed.

                      But I think I still prefer my Leica Outdoor Combination sholder bag (the small one of the two). It takes the same - natually except a laptop - and the relatively light cameras and lenses of the 4/3 system (compared to other familiar brands) I can carried for severel hours with comfort.

                      This weight/quality issue is one of the most over looked benefits of 4/3 - at lest by them other camera owners and reviewers...

                        Bl**dy 'ell that's interesting. I would have thought, by looking at the photo, that it was smaller. I am looking for a backpack that is bigger than the Minitrekker AW and would also take a laptop. Seems the Oly bag is the answer to my quest. Hope mine arrives soon.

                        Cheers,

                          Any idea of the retail price of the backpack? I'm looking for a pack bigger than my Lowepro Slingshot 100, but missed out on the Oly offer.
