▶︎ 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.
