Posted in: Camera Gear, Reviews

I bring my DSLR camera with me to all sorts of places, as I never know when some crazy scene might break out that I would not want to miss photographing.  (Actually, my life typically isn’t really quite that exciting.  But I digress.)  However, a DSLR isn’t a point-and-shoot camera, and most times the bulkiness Read More…

The Python Sling is advertised to hold a dSLR, 4 lenses, a tripod, and an iPad or MacBook (11″/13″ screens). We gave it a field test, and here’s the report.
