DSLR Camera Backpack for Travel Outdoor Photography 10.23*6.29*14.57 inches
Spacious and Well-Designed Backpack Camera Bag
I have a growing interest in photography and I have been learning as I go. One of the things I have discovered is that a good camera bag – sufficiently large to hold the camera, lenses you need and any accessories – is absolutely essential. I have a messenger-style camera bag that works well enough but I have run out of room in it and it does not have the capacity to hold all of my extra lenses and filters. I looked to this camera bag as a solution. It definitely holds more than my old bag, it seems to be made well and there are some nice features to this bag.This is a backpack style bag and it is about the same size as a small travel backpack, though it is an order of magnitude thicker. There are zippers and pockets everywhere. There\'s a lot of padding to protect the camera and multiple movable partitions.The main compartment is large enough to hold a small laptop if all of the partitions are pulled out. There are three small partitions and two large ones and these can be arranged in any configuration to accommodate a wide array of accessories. As shipped, the partitions are arranged to allow for the camera lens and camera to sit through the middle of the pack which maximizes the padding and protection for the most valuable parts of your setup, and the smaller partitions are about right for 2-3 lens kits. I have a smaller camera – a Samsung NX300 with the 18-55mm lens – so I need less room for my camera and rearranged the configuration to permit room for several filter kits, a telephoto lens, a fisheye lens and a few smaller accessories, all in the main compartment. I have not yet purchased additional lenses but will rearrange when I do.The main compartment also has a pocket that is suitable for either a thin book or a tablet. So, even with all of my other gear in the main compartment, I still have room for my tablet. I really can\'t ask for much more than that.There is a smaller zippered compartment on the front that has room for even more accessories. In this I have loaded up a spare set of macro lenses that would not fit in the main compartment. Inside this compartment there is yet another pocket suitable for holding a tablet as well as a mesh pocket for loose items, my choice being a couple of pens. However, the most interesting item in there, attached by a tether, is a waterproof nylon cover for the whole bag. So, if you need to go out in the rain with this backpack, you can do so without fear of getting your equipment wet.On the sides there are two small pockets, sufficient for holding a couple of small items like a filter or two or even a very small flashlight.On the front there is one more zippered pocket that is well suited for thin items, like a map, magazine or papers.The shoulder straps are adjustable and padded so getting the pack to fit just right is not an issue. However, there is a carrying handle loop on the top of this bag and I prefer carrying this bag using that instead (I have always preferred carrying backpacks this way).This is a very nice camera bag. A lot of thought went into the design and it can hold a lot of equipment for its size. It has replaced my other camera bag outright.Disclaimer: I was provided a sample of this product in exchange for a fair, honest and thorough review.
