Adventure photographers need a camera bag that’s as tough as they are. With its rugged materials and faceted design, the MindShift PhotoCross 10 sling camera bag will protect your gear from another punishing trip into the wild. The PhotoCross is built to withstand the elements, yet comfortable enough to wear on long days in the field. This camera sling bag stays out of the way when you’re scrambling but offers quick access to your gear when you’re ready to take the shot.

This bag is very similar to the outstanding Think Tank TurnStyle 10 sling bag. I needed a lightweight, comfortable bag for the smallish Micro Four-thirds Olympus/Panasonic system for use while hiking, riding bikes, motor cycles, horseback, etc. The TurnStyle 10 fills those needs well and is often used as a general bag. The bag only weighs 1 pound, is super comfortable - which are big pluses. Yet there are two things I would have liked in the design – a way to carry a water bottle and a way to carry a tripod, monopod, or light stand/umbrella.

The MindShift Gear PhotoCross 10 bag includes more water resistant materials and zippers and the means to carry a water bottle and strap on items one may wish to take with them. The front and bottom of the bag is a tough waterproof material so I have no concern about setting the bag down in water or mud. At 2 lbs. it is twice as heavy as the Turn Style 10 but is just as comfortable, if it not more so, to wear all day. These sling bags are the lightest, best, and most useful sling bags of the dozen I have tried over the years.

Near the same size as the TurnStyle 10 I can pack more items in the bag. Currently in the bag I have: an Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II camera, an Olympus 12-40mm f/2.8 lens, 42.5mm f/1.2, 7-14mm f/4.0, 35-100mm f/2.8, 100-400mm f/4.0-6.3 Panasonic lenses in the large compartment. The Olympus FL50-R and FL-600R flash units, spare batteries and other small accessories in the front pocket and mesh pockets at the top of the main compartment – all which weigh in at 12 lbs. And there is still room for a 10” tablet. On the outside I have a 20oz. water bottle and a travel sized tripod attached.

Grab/carry Handles at the top and on a side of the bag are very welcome. Unique to this sling bag is a load-lifter strap on the shoulder strap and another on the waist belt. These allow you to fine tune how the bag rest against your body and they make significant difference in comfort.

Highly Recommend for the outdoor adventurer!

Wasn't sure I'd be happy spending this much money on a bag, but it's worth every penny. They made a great YouTube video that highlights all the uses for the bag that I told super helpful. I used this for a wedding with my mirrorless system so I could keep my items near and dear and it worked great. Also was the only sling bag I could find with a water bottle holder. I mean seriously, do photographers enjoy going all day without water, or do they enjoy carrying it when they whole idea is to free up your hands to take pictures! Well done Mindshift!

Awesome bag, great quality, but needs more padding in the shoulder strap!

Painful for your neck... You will regret buying this

Ok this may be for mirrorless cameras but if you are a Sony A7 series user with Canon lenses, the padding is not sufficient to protect your expensive set up. Very comfortable for cycling around on back etc and good quality materials, but that padding is not enough. I've contacted them to request more padding--we'll see what they say. I want to keep it but if they can't provide some more inserts asap, its going back.

Great bag for my Olympus EM1 plus 3 lenses =/- battery grip battery

1. Background info: I have 2-3 Mindshift Gear Rotation Packs along with one of their newer traditional photo backpacks and I have a lot of Think Tank gear. Bottomline, if anything, I hugely biased towards MIndshift Gear / Think Tank.
2. Bottomline Random thoughts: Yes, on paper, the specs on this sling bag are impressive, however the practical use, although ok, it's just that ok.
re: Build Quality: Excellent. On the other hand, because it's built so well and the fabrics are waterproof (or resistant?) the actual "feel" of the bag is... plasticky and stiff and as such, it lends itself to the feel of being "boxy", which is what I don't want when I'm using a sling bag.
re: Zippers: because this bag is meant to be weather proof to some extent, the zippers are that smooth; often requires a two handed approach. It is what it is, but I would rather have the functionality of a one handed zipper operation. "
re: Size: very roomy; can't complain about that.
re: Functionality: Although the bag is roomy, it drives me nuts in that when fully open, the main flap tends to close on itself; I mean, when you're in the field and want to change lens, you have to deal with the stupid flap tending to flop down on itself; Terrible design. Again, I have a feeling this may be related to the materials used to make the bag; a stiff type fabric.
re: Functionality: One of the reasons I got this bag was that it had attachment points on the outside for a small tripod. As some have noted, the straps that are on the bag for this purpose is completely useless in that the smallest you can make the strap is still too big to properly hold a small tripod. I mean, come on Mindshift Gear; did you guys actually test this bag??? If you want to hold a small tripod, you'll need to rig a bunny type system.
3. Unfortunately, this could have been a great sling, but only if the Mindshift folks simply talked to / looked at the ThinkTank sling and modified that design for the outdoors. The ThinkTank sling is much better designed, is more comfortable, is easier to use in real world conditions, but lacks the weather proofing as well as outside attachment points.

Vorab: Ich komme aus der DSLR Vollformat Ecke und war bisher immer mit massenweise großem und schwerem Equipment unterwegs. Darauf hatte ich keine Lust mehr, habe alles verkauft und bin ins Fuji DSLM Lager gewechselt.
Kürzlich musste sich die Fuji dann beweisen: Eine Ostsee Kreuzfahrt...5 Destinationen, alle fotografisch interessant. Ein neuer „Rucksack“ musste also her.
Gesucht war: Klein, leicht, praktisch, ordentlicher Diebstahlschutz, unempfindlich und es musste alles rein passen.
Fazit: Das hat geklappt!
Fuji XT2 mit Griff, zwei Objektive, Tischstativ, Remote Trigger, Ersatzakkus, Speicherkarten, Haida 100mm Filtersystem mit 4 Filtern, Geldbörse, Handy, Kompaktknippse der Regierung und außen noch eine Flasche Wasser im seitlichen Mesh Fach.
Dazu ist die PhotoCross Ultra bequem und war häufig für 6h und mehr auf dem Rücken....ermüdungsfrei und ohne Schulterschmerzen!
Die Tasche lässt sich mit einem feuchten Lappen abwischen, ist m.M. nach Wasser abweisend und hat im Lieferumpfang noch eine Regenhülle dabei. Gepaart mit den sehr coolen Reißverschluss Zippern die sich ineinander Haken lassen (Diebstahlschutz!) und zusätzlichen beiliegenden Stativ (oder Regenjacken ;-) ) Straps ist das ein tolles Gesamtpaket!
