I rarely do any review of any sort of equipment and I’m not sponsored by any. However, people who have known me knows I’ve been searching for the “perfect” camera bag or equipment bag for the past few years. I’ve used traditional camera bags and belt systems from different manufacturers. At a certain time, I’ve also considered designing my own bag and get it tailor made. That is, until I found the shootsac. Shootsac is designed by the famous Jessica Claire.
Last weekend’s engagement was the first time I’ve actually used my shootsac while on a job and honestly, I love it. Usually after any length of shoots, my shoulder feels sore and tired from carrying my extra lenses, flash and accessories. However, the material from this bag is very soft and light, and the best part is, it’s not bulky at all. During the 3 hours of shooting, I honestly forgot I was carrying equipment with me on my shoulder. Of course, this is not a traditional camera bag and it is not going to change the way you transport or store your equipment for any certain job. With that said, there were times when I placed my camera (without the vertical grip) and two lenses and walked along.
I highly recommend this bag if you have the same criteria as I do,
1. Easy on shoulder
2. Not bulky
3. Look good!
4. Easy access to your equipment (Shootsac has a total of 6 pouches, the 3 at the front are meant for lenses/flash, and the back 3 are meant for accessories – perfect for batteries, and my Pocket Wizards)
