Cosyspeed Streetomatic

Avid streethunters.net readers may remember our first ever gear review just over a year ago featured a review of the Cosyspeed Camslinger Camera Bag. Now that we’re a bit more experienced and we’ve got some more reviews under our belts, we’ve been given the opportunity to revisit Cosyspeed’s product line. The guys at Cosyspeed were kind enough to send over a preproduction prototype of their new Streetomatic camera bag for me to try out on the streets. Cosyspeed camera bags are quite unusual in that that they offer street photographers the unique facility to wear their camera bags on their hips like a utility belt, and they can also function as a regular messenger ‘sling’ bag if desired. I’ve been using the Cosyspeed Streetomatic for street photography extensively over the last month, and I’m going to share my findings with you in one of our comprehensive street hunter reviews.

This review was amended on 3/9/2015 as a result of planned changes by Cosyspeed to the production model of the Streetomatic. See ‘Update’ for further details. The score ratings remain the same, but the summary text at the end of the review was altered to take into account these changes.

Fujifilm X-Pro1 with the XF18mm

Introduction

Dear Streethunters.net Readers,

It is time for another camera review for Street Photography! This will be the 3rd camera review we have done so far. In the past we have written a review about the wonderful Ricoh GR for Street Photography and the powerful Canon 6D for Street Photography. Both those reviews are highly recommended because they are from a Street Photographer’s perspective.

Today, we will review a camera that was talked about by many when it first hit the market. Some praised it for what it had to offer, others gave it a serious beating because of its really bad AF performance. There are numerous reviews about it all over the web, and countless YouTube videos and tutorials on how to get best results from its focusing system. Despite any quirks this camera may have it is still a wonderful work of engineering that produces some of the most amazing files one could hope for. Today we review the Fujifilm X-Pro1.

The Canon 6D for Street Photography

Introduction

At Street Hunters we like to review gear for our readers so you can get an idea of how gear performs and if it might work well for you and your style of photography. In this review I will analyse my own Canon EOS 6D, to tell you my experiences with using this camera. Being a DSLR camera, the 6D isn’t a type of camera most well known for street photography. However, DSLRs are incredibly versatile cameras and many people may have bought them for a wide variety of uses, and will want to apply them to street photography. Equally some photographers will be using them to photograph for their business (perhaps weddings, or sports), and then also using the same camera to pursue street photography as their hobby. For some reasons as to why a DSLR is good for street photography, check out Rob Heron’s Guide to Using A DSLR for Street Photography.

The Ricoh GR for Street Photography

Introduction

Streethunters.net is a website that has been going on now for nearly 2 years. I remember when we published our first post in May 2013, we shared it with the world and we got something like 1 or 2 visits. But we didn’t stop. We persisted and since then we have been blessed with a growing number of simply fantastic Readers!

Some of you are active in our highly interactive GooglePlus Community, the SHRC, some prefer to comment here on our website. Others participate in the conversation on our StreetHunters YouTube channel, or the StreetHunters Facebook page. We also get messages from you on our Twitter and our Streethunters.net Flickr Group.

We are so very grateful for your constant involvement and simply amazing ideas and suggestions. We try to do our best to share with you topics that we hope you find interesting and helpful. In return we get your extremely useful feedback in return, your valuable perspective on our work and most importantly we feel how strong your support is. Thank you all.

A couple of months ago, one of you dear Readers named Buru Lwyd, wanted to support Streethunters.net with a unique and special way. It all begun from a simple Social Media post where I expressed my desire about trying out a specific camera. He owns one of those cameras, so he thought it would be a good idea if he sent me his, so I could try it, put it through it’s paces and then let him know what I thought about it. That way I would see for myself if I liked it and I would know if I would be willing to buy one. So, he sent it over to the Streethunters.net HQ here in Crete and I got to spend a couple of months with it. The camera that I had the opportunity to borrow was none other than the King of Street Photography itself, the Ricoh GR!

Cosyspeed Camslinger 105

Introduction

Dear StreetHunters.net Readers, this is the first official review that we are writing and the lucky product that will be reviewed is the Cosyspeed Camslinger Camera Bag. Since we haven’t done any reviews ever before and we have no experience writing one what so ever, please understand that we might not do a perfect job on the first go. What is important though is that we will write the Cosyspeed Camslinger Camera Bag review objectively, based on the experience after using it for nearly one month in the streets. It is imperative that you, our Readers receive our honest opinion. We think it is equally important for the product makers to get an honest opinion also.

In this review, we will examine the Cosyspeed Camslinger Camera Bag from different aspects and we will look at various factors that make it the product it is. So, here is the list of things we will look at / examine in our review:

  1. Size / Weight
  2. Varieties
  3. Product quality
  4. Durability
  5. Ergonomy (usability & comfort combined)
  6. Selling point
  7. Price / Value for money

For each point we examine, we will give the bag a grade from 1 to 10. So for example if we like the size we will give it an 8 or 9 or 10. If we don’t, we will give it a 2 or 3 or 4 and so on and so forth. At the end, we will add up the points, divide them by the number of things we examined and get an average score. Of course one important thing you should take into account is that we will look at this product from a Street Photographer’s perspective only. So let’s get to it!

Reviewing your work

It’s time to sharpen the pencil and consolidate a period of time measured out in 1000’s of your images in an effort to move forward consciousnessly by understanding your unconscious previous work.

It’s time for a review.

Parked in yellow folders there are big folders, little folders, placebo folders,4wd folders in the digital multi storey car park of your computers memory….hundreds of folders…..thousands of images……..so much has changed…..

It would be easy to leave it.
