I welcome a new Site Sponsor, COSYSPEED!
You can buy the COSYSPEED Camslinger HERE. My video review of the Camslinger is HERE.
Hello to all! Just wanted to chime in and welcome the newest (and last for at least a year, no more room!) site sponsor, COSYSPEED! They are the ones who make the very interesting and cool Camslinger bag that is really not like a bag at all. In fact, when I wear mine I do not even feel like I have anything on at all (though it does look fannypack-ish) I reviewed the Camslinger a short time ago HERE and to this day I still use it from time to time when I do not need to carry a full large bag, In other words, if I run to do some street shooting it is perfect as the bag is around the waist and I do not even feel it on me. When my camera is needed I just pull it from my side, holster style. This was especially useful when I was out downtown one day street shooting. I walked and had zero weight on my shoulder and I forgot that I was even carrying my camera. I my review I spoke about how it could be tricky to unlatch..well, that went away after a couple of uses. The bag is actually quite different from other carrying systems out there. Very original and if I were to change anything it would be to make an all black version to be more stealthy. As it is they have bright green accents and it sort of sticks out when trying to be stealthy.
The Camslinger bags come in two sizes with one being small and one being medium-sized. The Camslinger 105 is perfect for mirror less cameras and the 160 is better for larger cameras. Both have the same quality build and materials and is made to withstand the elements. The prices range from $109-$119 so the price is reasonable. The bags are also available at B&H Photo for those who want to order in the USA.
COSYSPEED recently did a video with Thomas Leuthard, who I met in Ireland at Castle Leslie a few months back. Thomas is a fantastic street shooter and shoots in B&W using a Olympus OM-D camera. His photos are fantastic and the video below shows him in action doing his thing.
I grabbed a shot of Thomas while in Ireland and he was always looking for a shot, even when we were all just hanging out as a group. Great guy and spectacular street shooter. Good to see he enjoyed the Camslinger as well.
So I thank CosySpeed for becoming a site sponsor as they are helping to keep this site going AND growing! Be sure to visit them HERE and if you want to purchase a Camslinger bag or just read more about it, check it all out HERE.

They literally only make fanny packs, per the Cosyspeed website… Do they have plans to release different style bags?
That guy is cruisin’ for a bruisin’, surely.
It’s still the same old problem, if a camera can’t fit in your pocket, then how to carry it. I’m not sure I’d want a large-ish black box dangling from my waist, though, looking a little like Clint Eastwood arriving in Tombstone.
Fanny-packs are a fashion crime, worthy of life, and this can’t be far behind.
Nice idea, but I think I’d rather put the camera in my (jacket) pocket. Less conspicuous if you ask me. And it does look like a fanny-pack (turned to the side)
