▶︎ Meet My New Favourite Camera Bag


Dallas

In this video I take a look at the new Photocross 13, a really cool sling bag for photographers who love the outdoors, or photographers like me, who don’t like to fuss about with their camera bags when they are working events. 

 

This isn’t a review, but more of an unboxing and authentic initial discovery of the bag, as well as how I packed it for the first time I took it out on a shoot, using 2 Olympus E-M1 bodies, both with battery grips and three of my most used lenses for events. 

 

You can jump to relevant parts of the video using the following time codes: 

 

0:05 unboxing

1:00 exploring the pockets and compartments

6:45 putting it on my back

9:15 packing it for my first shoot

15:10 first impressions after field use 

 

Apologies for the length of the video. I’ll try and make them a bit shorter in future, but I do value authenticity. 

 

 

You can buy your Photocross 13 using this link and help support this channel. A small percentage of the sale comes to me in the form of a sales commission.

Just an update on this bag... 

 

I'm using it on an almost daily basis now and it's definitely one of the best I have had. I removed the grip from one of my E-M1's and I re-configured the dividers using a couple of other ones I had from other bags. The gripped E-M1 goes in sans lens and the ungripped one now has it's Leofoto L-plate and Olympus 9-18mm permanently attached. That combo fits snugly into one of the smaller compartments. I have a little spot created with one of the borrowed dividers to put in my Samyang 7.5mm fisheye and even with all this stuff there is still a huge unused area that I can store things like lunch in. Also in the bag are my spare batteries, the Olympus 12-40/2.8 PRO and some memory cards. I attach my little Sunwayfoto CF tripod to the side with the provided clips and I'm ready to go on a real estate shoot. 

 

The only issue I have with this bag is that if I am wearing it on an RE shoot I have to be really careful when backing up and turning around in people's houses because sometimes I forget it's there and end up nudging things that shouldn't be nudged! :)
