I brought this bag for my new camera, the Panasonic Lumix FZ150. I have been using sturdy Lowepro camera bags for many years on my smaller Canons. They are made with high quality nylon, are water resistant, and fairly well padded on the inside. This model easily fits my camera, and lens cover in the main compartment, plug in battery charger, and spare battery inside the smaller zippered compartment. It has two small open side pockets, a carrying handle on top, shoulder straps, with the additional benefit of being able to attach it like a fanny pack to a pant belt. My guess is that it would afford a moderate level of protection for the camera inside if dropped from a moderate height, along with protection from the elements when jaunting around. Compact, light, well designed, and rugged, this is a good choice if it fits your camera.

I bought this bag to use with my Nikon D3000. The product description says it will fit the D3000, but alas, it does not. The bag is simply too small for any SLR with a standard lens. I gave this 2 stars because the bag seems nice, but it's simply mis-advertised

    Comments about Lowepro Adventura TLZ 15 Top Loading Bag for Compact D-SLR Camera Kits:

    This bag is a perfect fit for my Canon Rebel xti with standard lens. The camera fits snugly, the bag has several pockets for holding extras, and it is small and lightweight for ease of carrying. It would not hold a longer lens or extra parts, but is perfect when you don't want something large to haul around.

        The bag is very well made and definitely priced reasonably. I wish it was a little wider at the top. I use it for rebel 3ti with canon 50mm f1/4 lens on and it's a little too snug at the top so it takes some time to get the camera out. the length of the bag is perfect for my setup.

                This little case is a perfect fit for the new Olympus OM-D E-M5 with the 14-150mm zoom lens if the lens hood is reversed. The front pocket will hold the small flash unit, spare battery and memory cards but not the rather bulky battery charger and cord. I have a larger case for the camera with its accessories but I wanted a small case for the camera alone when I did not need the accessories and did not want to carry the large gadget bag. The Lowepro bags are very well made and I have had others which remained in good condition after years of use.

                    My new Canon Powershot SX50 HS fits into this TLZ15 bag perfectly. I like the padding and the overall protection this bag affords. I had researched a variety of bags/manufacturers and this Lowepro bag fits the bill.

                      Fits my Lumix G5 perfectly with 14- 140mm lens.

                      The loop on the back for use with a belt looks way too flimsy. I'll be visiting my local cobbler for a more trustworthy loop.

                      It just fits perfectly.

                      Nice sturdy product. I like the little pocket to store memory cards/batteries in.
                      This specific bag was suggested for the Nikon D3000 on the website, so I assumed it would fit. It is VERY snug. I can't zip it up all the way. I have decided to use it for anohter camera, but am quite annoyed that I have to buy another bag.
                      This bag would be a great size for a 4/3 technology digital "SLR", but not for a real DSLR.

                        This bag could be too small, then again I have a kit for an 80-200 2.8 that I take for sports.

                        I like the idea of a bag to carry my gear in. I've gone to a bit of a minimalist as opposed to when I used to carry everything I own. for one, age. For two, well, lots and lots of gear.

                        But, consider you're out and about, its raining. Nice to have a bag to put it in. Or if you're going through a crowd and going to get jostled. Its light and small enough not to be a bother when you're shooting. Bit sturdier that the olde 'never ready cases', the old leather or soft leather cases that used to be ubiquitious. OK, you're not that old, trust me. Not a lot of people used to have banged up brassed cameras in days of olde.

                        Fits the Leica V Lux 3 perfect (you have to remove the lense hood). If you have a camera that is any bigger, this bag will bot fit.
                        Not much space for spare battery etc but considering the price it is OK.

                        Used it on an adventure travel trip to the Antarctic. My only reservation about this bag is I didin't plan on needing a second lens. Otherwise it was great.

                              I brought this bag for my new camera, the Panasonic Lumix FZ150. I have been using sturdy Lowepro camera bags for many years on my smaller Canons. They are made with high quality nylon, are water resistant, and fairly well padded on the inside. This model easily fits my camera, and lens cover in the main compartment, plug in battery charger, and spare battery inside the smaller zippered compartment. It has two small open side pockets, a carrying handle on top, shoulder straps, with the additional benefit of being able to attach it like a fanny pack to a pant belt. My guess is that it would afford a moderate level of protection for the camera inside if dropped from a moderate height, along with protection from the elements when jaunting around. Compact, light, well designed, and rugged, this is a good choice if it fits your camera.

                                I love Lowepro camera bags, and this one is no exception - it houses my Lumix camera and my 14 - 42mm lens with no problems. If you want to carry multiple lens, you will want to have a larger bag.

                                    Despite the web site's description that a Nikon D3000 will fit in this case rest assured it will not. As others have written in their reviews, the case is fine in all respects except it's too small.

                                    I put my Nikon D3000 in this bag and I feel as though the fit is a little too tight. I keep the kit lens on, as it describes it possible, and it just seems too tight to me. Other than that, I like this bag because it is small-ish and very cushiony, making me feel like my camera is safe! Has a nice little front pocket with a special memory card case. I would maybe recommend this to someone, but would definitely alert them of the fact that it is a tiny bag!
