Clever if it Worked, 18 Jun 2013
Some almost clever ideas and well made, what a pity then that it doesn't work very well. If only Caselogic had had the sense (or logic, ha-ha) to hire a photographer when they designed it.
First off, the 'trapeze': yes it suspends a camera, and a very clever idea it is too, but if the camera has a lens with a lens hood - and let's face it, most do - then where is the lens hood supposed to go? It can be forced through the trapeze, yes, but it's a labour you don't want when out and about taking photos, and extracting again it is like fighting with an octopus. And another thing, where on earth is the camera strap supposed to go? Are we supposed to leave that behind as well? The trapeze leaves no room for it.
And what about the side pockets, what happened there? Impossible to get all but the smallest of lenses into; a small prime at a squeeze, maybe, if it's really, really small, and I mean a squeeze; but a small zoom will not fit, even one as small as the Sigma 10-20mm, there is no way it will go in even without the lens hood. So, what are you supposed to do with lens hoods Caselogic? Leave them behind with the camera strap? The promotional video shows a camera and lens (without lens hood and camera strap) going into the bag and it shows a couple of lenses standing by the side of the bag, never does it show them going into the bag. That's because they won't fit.
The back pocket has no use at all except maybe for a couple of business cards. Certainly it will not take an instruction manual as suggested by the video (again, you never see it actually inserted into the pocket) and is a waste of time.
Oh, Caselogic, next time you have a bright idea please, please, please invite a photographer onto your team to try it out before you hoist it onto the public, it would save so much time and return postage. You have some good ideas but they just have not been thought through.
