Camera mount and accessories specialist Shape has entered the camera bags market with its first camera case, the black Camera Bag, which provides organised storage for video cameras up to about 50cm long plus multiple accessories.
The bag is made of resistant fabric and has three handy removable pouches, which can be worn on a belt, with MOLLE straps and pockets for tools (such as canned air, lens cleaner and screwdrivers), cables and pens. It has a silent magnetic lid, dual zippered front pockets, a slate/flag pocket, a bottle pocket and Velcro surfaces for easy labelling.
It also has a fully padded interior with four zippered lid pockets, LED light zipper pulls to help see your gear, and a removable rain cover stored in the base. For comfortable carrying there is a choice of an adjustable, padded shoulder strap or top grip handles.
The bag is said to be “designed by camera operators for camera operators” and weighs 4.63kg, with dimensions of 30x50.8x30cm and a volume of 36 litres. It should start shipping this month and costs about $250.
