Lowepro SlingShot 302 AWThe single shoulder strap, waist-belt and back-panel are reassuringly padded. With the straps properly adjusted, the SlingShot is an extremely comfortable bag to carry.
Nikon D7000It may be small, but the D7000 packs a very powerful punch and as I write this, pretty much stands as the best DX DSLR to roll out of the Nikon factory to date.
Bushnell Trophy CamIn essence, the Trophy Cam is a digital stills and video camera combined with a PIR (passive infrared) motion sensor, all housed within a tough, waterproof resin case.
Canon 10x30 IS BinocularsObviously the standout feature of these Canon binoculars is their Image Stabilisation technology that helps to reduce image shake.
Pentax K-5The Pentax K5 really is packed full of features on its little body, there are tons of shooting modes which can be customised, there really is a huge variation, I'd be here forever if I had to explain them all!
