Same design and sizing as the Standard and Large SLR Covers, with the addition of a removable elastic waist strap. Used in conjunction with the photographer's own camera neck strap (not included), the waist strap holds the camera tight to the body. Camera can be removed from cover for shooting without having to unfasten waist strap. Ideal for skiing, hiking, and other outdoor activities. Action covers are not reversible.
I use this with a Canon T4i & 18-135 lens. The Zing XL does not accommodate this lens so I stepped up to the XL zoom sling. It fits but is a bit too big and the neoprene is thicker than the old slings which makes this more of a loose fitting case than stretched over sling. Overall I love the Zing Slings for how quickly you can deploy or put away the camera. Protects from just about everything but immersion in water. Perfect for outdoor photography and when traveling.
Many times I just want to carry my camera with the medium zoom lens on it and not lug my whole bag around. I started using these cases on my film cameras years ago. They fit my digital XTI and 7D well. They are strecthy and spongy so they give the camera a little protection from the normal dings and dents. I also store the camera in it to keep the dust/dirt off.
This barely fits my Nikon D3100 w/ a 18-55 mm lens. I have to wrestle it on and worry about putting so much pressure on the lens. Additionally, the color is DARK blue, not a periwinkle blue that the photo shows. I was worried that this would be too big.....not a chance.
Seems goo, Fits okay on the 55-200, lots of room on the 18-55 -- was looking to go a little smaller, but wanted to support to the 55-200 and this one did.
I always have this cover on when camera is not in use. Protects from scratches & light bumps. Great that it allows use of camera's strap, then hangs lightly from strap, or easily tucks away in a coat pocket or carry-bag. Cannot think of any way to design a better cover for the casual user.
I purchased this to provide a lightweight protective cover for my SLR while on vacation in Greece. I was not disappointed. I clipped it onto my camera's neck strap so it would be handy when needed.
I wish I hadn't bought this. I have a canon 7d and wanted a cover that would accommodate a zoom, however, I have owned it for months now and never use it. I'm not sure what the best use for it is, it takes longer to get the cover off than it does to remove my camera from either of my camera bags, so unless you are just going to strap the camera to your chest and keep it in the bag, this cover seems pointless. I thought it would be useful, but, for me it is not.
I was looking for something to protect my dSLR when travelling without a designated camera bag and this sure does the trick! This wrap fits my Canon XSi with either the 18-55mm kit lens, or the 15-85mm lens attached. It's a nice, snug fit and I don't worry about just tossing the camera into a tote bag or backpack with this wrap attached.
Some things to keep in mind: 1) when you open the box, you'll think 'no way is that going to fit my camera'. They do, they stretch. 2) use a neck strap when getting used to using it. You will be glad you have the neck strap the first time the camera flies out of your hands removing the cover. They are very slippery.
I just purchased this cover based on my previous ownership of a smaller Zing SLR cover. I had an older standard sized cover that worked great for my first generation Digital Rebel with Tamron 28-300mm zoom. I used the old cover when hiking and backpacking with my camera and really appreciated the quick release strap that went around your back to keep the camera from swinging. The cover protected the camera well against light rain, sweat and shock. I never had a problem with it. I have since upgraded to the Canon 40D and it took quite a bit of tugging and stretching to fit it in the standard cover. I just got the new Tamron 18-270mm stabilized lens and there was no way this new combo was fitting in the standard pouch. Enter the Large Zoom SLR cover. I am able to fit the 40D with a quick release tripod mounting plate and the 18-270mm lens with the lens hood attached into this cover. It is a bit tight, I think because the quick release plate extends the height of the body, but it fits. This lens has a 72mm filter size, but the body is even wider than that due to the stabilization mechanisms, and the lens hood is wider too, but they still fit in the zoom tunnel OK. This cover has velcro tabs on the portion that closes around the lens whereas the older, smaller model had to be pulled around the end of the lens. There is a little bit of room at the end of the lens pouch with this lens/body combo, but not much. The only real problem I have with the cover is Zing changed from the around-the-back quick release strap to a little difficult to attach and detach strap that hooks to your camera's neck strap. This does nothing to prevent swinging and swaying if you are wearing this while hiking. I plan to modify mine to add this functionality. Pros: Fits my 40D with Tamron 18-270mm lens + hood Good Weather / Shock Resistance Excellent Longevity and Quality (based on previous Zing experience) Cons: No around-the-back strap to prevent swinging when wearing it around your neck
