Tuff-Luv E-volve Expedition Camera Backpack Review

IMG_6966.JPGAs I’ve mentioned, this year I’m looking to get more into photography, so I was over joyed when my good friends at Love-Cases offered me a camera backpack to try.

Ideally what I’d like is something I could use when on my motorbike that allows me to have storage space for cloths, gadgets, snacks and drinks as well as compartments for my camera equipment.  I didn’t realise such a thing existed, but this Tuff Luv E-Volve backpack is exactly what I was looking for!

My New Lens

For well over a year I’ve been toying with the idea of buying a new lens for my Canon 400D. I’d been keeping an eye on the Canon 70-300mm IS lens, the same as I’d borrowed from my dad to go to Brans Hatch last April, but they were up over £350 and didn’t seem to be coming down in any way. A couple of days ago I noticed Canon did a 55-250mm IS (Image Stabilized) lens, which I found for only £169 from a place near Bloomsbury Square, so this afternoon I headed in a bought one.

It’s about twice the size of the original lens (18-55mm) with a smooth zooming and auto focus motion.  I’m not sure how often I’ll get to use it.  Many places these days wont let you take a camera in if it has changable lenses.  So, if I go back to Wembley to see the Saints play the Chargers for example, I wont be able to take my 400D with me.

While I was testing the lens, next doors dogs came out, so I put it to test.  I was able to zoom right in on the dogs faces, and had to zoom out slightly to take the picture you see on the right.
