It does what a £15 bag is designed to do!!
on 27 October 2015
You're looking at buying a £15 bag to hold your DSLR and all your equipment! Just think about that for a second and if you are happy to put the safety of your gear in something so cheap, then read on!!
First things first, people have complained that when the DSLR is in the bag and the other sections aren't full, the bag sinks into the centre. This is easily combated by moving the padding around to put the camera at the bottom of the bag and the lens pointing up!
No one has mentioned in their reviews that the shoulder straps are fastened on via plastic clips, so if your equipment is heavy, you are putting your faith in two very cheap plastic clips and the same goes for the tripod straps, they are designed for super light weight and small tripods, not more robust and heavy ones!
This bag is perfect for carrying some essential gear in when out on a shoot. My camera is never in the bag, what use is it to me sat in there?! I use the bag to carry my lenses, my batteries, flash lights, lens filters and my lunch! The camera is always in my hands ready to use! There are plenty of pockets and spaces to put things and its not the most uncomfortable bag to have on for a long days photo shoot. It even comes with a waterproof bag to throw over it if the heavens open.
I give it 3 stars because it was £15 and its seen me through several photo shoots and events without issue. If you want a bag for keeping minimum gear in and something small and light to keep things neat, than this is a good option. If on the other hand you have lots of gear and several camera bodies...you need to be looking at bigger, more robust bags.
