    Camera Bag

    I ran out of room in my old camera bag. I got tired of deciding what NOT to bring on a shoot. I found this bag and really like it so far...

    Great review! And always good to see how other shooters pack.

    These have been my go-to camera bags for the last seven or eight years(I think I own at least four originals). They are no longer made under the Petrol name, though. After Vitec gobbled them up, they rebadged them Sachtler and changed the interior color from orange to red. Every now and again, B&H puts them on-sale.

    The one that is for my ENG camera fits a 2/3" B4 ENG lens(either a Fuji 22x7.8 or 13x4.5, depending on what is on the camera already), 3x 190wh or 230wh gold mount batteries, Preston Micro Force, back-up Bebob zoom controller, LitePanels Sola ENG toplight, back-up Frezzi top light, cases for 5x P2 cards, smallHD DP7 Pro OLED monitor, smallHD Focus 5 OLED monitor, P2 card reader, A/B stand-alone battery plate with 4x p-taps and p-tap extension cable, A/B lock-on power supply, 2x 25' XLR's, 2x 25' BNC's, gaffe tape, lens cleaner, lens blower, and some other assorted odds 'n ends. Plus a PortaBrace camera rain cover on the outside(adjustable side strap).

    I don't put my camera in it but I have the large Sachtler Dr. Bag and I love it, it's been all over the world with me. It's the one that has an internal LED strip and two side pockets
    and it holds a ton of lenses, batteries, tools, lens wraps, some small LED panels, etc. Really like the Sachtler bags.
    It's a business first and a creative outlet second.
    G.A.S. destroys lives. Stop buying gear that doesn't make you money.

    ^That's a pretty good tip. I use(d) spacious duffel bags myself [from Amazon].

    F-Stop Tilopa is the best of all bags I've used or tried.

    Freehub_Review_Fstop-3.jpg

    It's huge, but always passed like a hand luggage and very comfortable even in mountain hike. It's almost 8 years old, visited more than 20 countries, but still look an fit amazing (10% of wear without any broken zipper or clasp). One of my best purchases.
    To be honest, their service in opposite way - one of the worst I have dealt with.

    You all appear to work all day without drinking a litre of water?

    Not healthy.

    A bag needs a way to carry water that is safely seperated from the electronic gubbins.

    This ones bottom section seems quite interesting as it might meet that criteria. And you could put a sandwhich and a toilet roll too and a heavy bin liner.

    It doesnt matter the job but I will always have a heavy bin liner (to properly waterproof in a heavy shower) some toilet roll and some water - less so the manual!

    Great idea, plus the camera's guaranteed to stay cold.

    I’m not hiking with or carrying my beast of a bag much farther than from my truck into the shooting location. When it’s actually on my back, it’s usually not there for more than five minutes.
