Minimize sore neck and shoulders when you tote around your big SLR camera, with its zoom lens and other gear, thanks to the new

SLR Camera Sling

from CaseLogic.

Instead of a shoulder strap, the sling has a wide, padded, diagonal back strap that keeps the bag close to your back and diffuses the weight on any one body part. When ready to shoot, slide the sling to the front and unzip the side-entry bag for easy access to the camera.

Pockets and dividers inside and out protect additional lenses, memory cards, and other accessories, and an adjustable sternum strap provides support and stability. Measures about 16-by-10-by- 8 inches.

SLR Camera Sling costs $89.99 at www.caselogic.com; 1-800-925-8111.
