Nice but company no longer exists.

I bought this bag based on the great reviews. After buying it found out they were no longer in business. They merged with another company. Upset as I wanted the waist strap with this bag, but no longer exists. I should have done more research as that may have stopped me from buying this bag.

Fits Tamron 150-600 w/Hood Perfectly!

By

from Morgan Hill, CA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Ok, full disclosure. I purchased this bag a long, long time ago on sale (current price). The original MSRP was something like $175, and people paid that! The intent of this bag was to be a "working bag", in which you'd carry a lens or two, along with memory cards, and other gear you'd need on a shoot. The V3 had rave reviews, the Jr was a shrunk down version. I have to admit, this idea sounded good but in practice, the bag was stiff, and a bit big and bulky considering how little you could actually get into it. I found that my regular favorite camera bag could carry my camera, a couple of lenses and a flash - and not really be that much harder to carry. I really never used this bag, and it's sat on the shelf for 2 years probably. Then I bought the Tamron 150-600. I found myself looking for cases for it and then all of a sudden I remembered this bag. I dug it out. Would the lens fit? I didn't really even remember what this thing looked like it's been so long. It fits the Tamron 150-600 with the hood reversed and even the tripod collar *perfectly* when you pull out the moveable internal dividers. The lens doesn't move, there's no room for it to move. It's like it was tailored for the Tamron. If you're looking for a bag you can take your lens into the field with, this is only $10 more than the Lowepro or the Ape Case. It has an ergonomic shoulder strap, and a waist tie. It's entirely water proof, with covered zippers and that goes for the pockets. It has media card holders – and an over-the-top holographic tab that says "media pocket" in moving text. Best of all, it's got a built in micro fiber cleaning cloth on a retractable line. You pull it out, clean your lens, and it "zips" back into its deep pocket. Details like this give me an idea as to why this was such a pricey bag when it came out. While I couldn't recommend this for something smaller – like a 70-200/2.8 lens, or a couple of medium ranged lenses, as a field bag for the Tamron it's pretty darned nice. It's too cumbersome for a "sit on the shelf" protection, I'd recommend the Lowepro, the Ape Case or even the Optech snoot boot. Check the web for reviews of this and the V3, it will give you a better idea than just the photograph! Recommended.

Boda Bag is Awesome

By

from Northern Michigan  -  Pro Photographer

I bought this as a lightweight alternative to my larger photo backpack. It works perfectly with my Nikon FX lenses. It can hold my 70-200mm with the hood attached along with a 50mm in the side pocket while I have my 16-35mm on my camera body. It's got room for extra cards,cell phone,filters and spare batteries too. I love it.

Nice idea; works poorly

By

from ATL  -  Pro Photographer

This case expands via a zippered, bellowed bottom section. It sounds like a good idea, but it's barely functional. When expanded, there is no padding in the bottom section. When compressed, a big gob of stiff fabric takes up much of the interior. On top of that, the zipper binds badly in more than one place. Heavy, stiff, strong, and barely functional.

Great Bag

By

from Pittsburgh, PA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Great for lenses, smaller dslrs, point and shoots, small tablet or anything that fits and you wish to keep clean/dry.

Could have been designed better!

By

from Ohio  -  Pro Photographer

I purchased this case to replace the 70-200 2.8L lens case my wife has claimed. As I unboxed the item it appeared to be a quality case (build quality is decent). I then tested it with my Canon 70-200 f2.8L and the lens case will not close with the tripod collar attached (Collar has a Custom Bracket QR Plate). This defeated the purpose of the case for me. Upon removal of the lens I also noticed a couple of other things that immediately made me take a pair of scissors to the case. I found that both my 70-200 f2.8L and my wife's 70-200 f4L where catching on the interior, the manufacture attached a loop for some reason to the back of the inside of the case that the lens hoods get caught on when removing the lens. I also didn't care for the material with a metal snap at the end or a metal D ring on the interior of the case. I feel as if this defeats the purpose of a case that protects your lens if the case has metal on the interior that might damage the lens. The hand strap on the back is worthless if your lens weighs much at all. The strap is really thin, it attaches at each end with a single snap closure along with 2 more snaps in the middle. The belt loop seems to be decent but is sewn into the case so it will only work with a belt or hip strap that can be pushed through the loop.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

FOLASHADE A  Where can i get a substitute waist strap?
Shopper  What straps are included? Shoulder, waist, or both.
STEVEN B  The only strap included with the bag is the shoulder strap. The waist strap is optional and I couldn't find it available anywhere. Hope this helps.
Dave D  Will a Minolta 70-200 F4 mounted on a Sony Alpha 350 with grip fit?
PHILIP M  Dave D: I want to say yes, but it will be super tight around the body. I use a D4 and cannot get it in there with 24-120/28-300 on it. If you place just the body in, then yes it will work, etc. The V3/V3jr are actually meant for glass, flash(s), cards and misc stuff, etc. I have the V3 as well and that will fit gripped body and longer lens. There's a youtube video on someone demonstrating the bag - V3. Philip
