    Birding in Germany

    Hi Can you please check Pallas's warbler on both iPhone & iPad? How do the colours compare? I've an iPhone 5 & a 2nd gen iPad.

    Review by 'berksbod' on item 'SlingShot 300 AW'

    From my experience this bag is just too big for the single strap design I "packed" mine with 30D, 400 5.6, + couple of smaller lenses The dody+ 400mm just about fitted in but the weight across one side of my neck caused me numbness in my shoulder and arm! The obvious solution was not to pack so...
