Naneu UrbanGear U220 Review

Last week I got a call from a company called Naneu

They make camera bags (they make quite a few camera bags in fact) and   they asked me if I would field test one of them and give them some feedback. Well, there’s no way that I’m going to turn down a free bag so I jumped at the chance. (more…)

Adorama Joe Farace Reporter Review Round-Up

adorama-joe-farace-reporterThis rectangular pack is big, black, and voluminous enough for a 17-inch laptop and a DSLR with pro telephoto attached, along with a couple of smaller lenses, flashes, and all sorts of accessories. Don’t let the $75 (direct) price fool you — it may be inexpensive, but this bag is tough enough for a working photojournalist. READ FULL REVIEW AT POPPHOTO

Crumpler Brazillion Dollar Home Review Round-Up

crumpler-brazillion-dollar-homeIts name may be silly, but this messenger-style shoulder bag is all business. It’s big enough to squeeze a 17-inch MacBook Pro into the laptop compartment and a pro D-LSR (or two) with plenty of lenses in the main space. The interior is colored bright orange, for easy identification and retrieval of the item you’re looking for. Under the velcroed front flap are lots of tiny pockets for CF cards and batteries — one side red and one side green for keeping track. The Brazillion Dollar Home is a stylish but sensible place for your expensive gear to live. READ FULL REVIEW AT POPPHOTO

Kata GDC Organizer Case OC-97 Review Round-Up

kata-gdc-organizer-case-oc-97Kata calls this huge bag a light case, and it can certainly carry lights — several flash heads (or monolights) with lightstands, cables, and diffusers. But with a few more optional internal dividers, the OC-97 can also carry a ton of cameras and lenses for photography in a far-flung location.

And though it’s soft-sided, it’s rigid enough to stand on if you need a little extra elevation for a shot. A fully loaded bag this big is bound to be heavy, so it ships with Kata’s Inserttrolley so that you can roll all those lights and cameras to the shoot. READ FULL REVIEW AT POPPHOTO

Kata GDC Rucksack R-101 Review Round-Up

kata-gdc-rucksack-r-101A slightly downsized version of Kata’s most popular backpack, the R103, this one is just as tough and well thought-out. Bright yellow internal dividers help you see your gear more easily; integrated camera clips on the shoulder harnesses take the weight off your neck. Despite its smaller space it can hold a pro D-SLR with an attached 70-200mm f/2.8 zoom, a few smaller lenses, and a 12-inch laptop — yet is small enough to carry on. A good choice for photographers of modest build. READ FULL REVIEW AT POPPHOTO

Lightware z300 Review Round-Up

lightware-z300The Lightware z300 Case is very protective and attractive. The zippered and buckled top has a Velcro’d-in zippered pocket. I needed to remove this pocket to get my Canon 300mm f/2.8 Lens + pro body to fit. Even so, the fit is snug – exactly what I was looking for.

Quick release fastex buckle allows the lid to be closed without having to zip it up. Ballistics fabric is waterproof (case is water resistant). Comes with a permanent adjustable shoulder strap. Adjustable exterior straps for Monopod. Exterior pockets on 3 sides for press passes, pens & pencils and important papers, or detachable “Z” Pocket (patent pending). A shoulder strap and padded handle are provided for convenient transporting.

Overall construction quality is very good. The rectangular shape of the Lightware z300 Case allows it to pack well with other rectangular cases. READ FULL REVIEW AT DIGITAL PICTURE

Lowepro CompuDaypack Review Round-Up

lowepro-compudaypackLowepro CompuDaypack: ideal for a small camera outfit: an SLR and 2-3 lenses, flash and accessories, and up to a 17″ notebook computer. The CompuDaypack is good for urban work requiring transport of a small photography kit and a laptop. As a backpack, it’s reasonably comfortable and the shoulder straps are well-padded, although it lacks a waist belt. In my experience, it would be better suited as an urban or campus backpack than for long photography hikes. For carrying a larger, more complete SLR outfit and a laptop, I prefer the Lowepro CompuTrekker AW. Like all the Lowepro products I’ve owned and used, the CompuDaypack looks very well-built with high-quality materials and construction. READ FULL REVIEW AT PHOTO.NET

Lowepro Fastpack 250 Review Round-Up

lowepro-fastpack-250Combining backpack carrying qualities and roomy storage with sling-like bag accessibility to gear, the Lowepro Fastpack 250 ($119 MSRP) adds the modern necessity of a safe and padded laptop storage area as well. Lightweight yet sturdy, the bag has ample shoulder straps and side pockets, plus a back support belt and strap for added security and comfort.

Divided into two compartments, the upper has room for all sorts of items, including flapped memory card and battery compartments, chargers, wires, PDAs, and even an overnight kit, while the lower has padded, movable dividers for keeping camera, lens, and flash intact and ready to use. …

All told, the Fastpack 250 seems an excellent choice for travelers. Keeping gear safe yet readily accessible, with room for lots of other items in the kit that stay stowed until needed, seems to be the theme of this design. READ FULL REVIEW AT SHUTTERBUG.NET

Lowepro Lens Trekker 600 AW Review Round-Up

lowepro-lens-trekker-600-awThe Lowepro Lens Trekker 600 AW is ideally suited to carry one large lens (up to a Canon EF 600mm f/4 L IS) attached to a camera body. It is a high quality, well padded medium-weight case that does not cost a fortune. Like Lowepro’s other Trekker AW Series Camera Backpacks, the Lowepro Lens Trekker 600 AW features the Pack Jack adjusting shoulder harness system. Shaped like a large, flat arrow, the thin, stiff plastic Pack Jack slides down behind the shoulder strap harness to release the Velcro that holds it in place. If you have a large lens to pack, the Lowepro Lens Trekker 600 AW is a good (and popular) camera backpack for doing so. READ FULL REVIEW AT DIGITAL PICTURE
