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.
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.
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.
