[•] K&F Concept Camera Bag Review

AX3C5131

With a new bag comes a new bag review. For a long long time well 12 years in fact I have used a LowePro version camera bag in the same style as this K&F Concept bag.

AX3C5149

The K&F version has two plastic pads on the base for when you put the bag down on the ground to protect the base and the fabric of the bag including the gear inside which I really like. The outside front has clips for a tripod to hold centre of the bag while walking. Balance in a bag is the single most important feature.

There are some details I like about the bag including the cute little embroidered tripod symbol. LowePro as a camera bag is a forgotten dream the prices are just sickening when you can purchase this bag for $75 and the build quality I would consider substantially better. The shoulder straps are firm and hold their shape and on the back feels very comfortable. The front pocket holds a Surface Pro tablet with ease.

The zippers can be undone with one hand so if your a one handed photographer this will definitely cater for you.

The bones of the bag allow for two decent DSLR’s. In the photo you can see with a little customisation of the support pads you can fit a Fujifilm GFX50s with 32-64mm lens. Up top is a Sony A7II mirrorless for the little projects along with two primes lenses. And other sections hold a dust blower, Lens hood and SD card holder case.

Extras include waterproof dust cover and would you believe a gift zip bag containing a dust blower, spray bottle for lens cleaning and cleaning cloth. Such a thoughtful well presented bag for any photographer.

Overall Rating 10/10

This is one of the best bang for buck bags around including build quality compared to any other bag on the market.

If you get this bag you will be filled with joy.

[•] Whats in my bag 2017

AX3C1334

Here’s my everyday bag. I’ve found over the years one of the hardest decisions in photography has to be the purchase and selection of a camera bag. Many photographers like myself have multiple bag setups depending on the type of situation. At the moment I’m sticking with the basic formula of one main camera bag which has turned out to be the ageless Domke F2.

In the Domke F2 bag with little introduction is the Sony A7II packing an impressive 24.3 Megapixels. Now it’s not the best camera in the world its strong point is using legacy glass.  Out of all the Sony A7 series mirrorless this model won’t break the bank account.

Many of us old photographers have waited a long time to use legacy glass this is what makes it brilliant. Three lenses in the bag are the Summicron amigos 28, 35, 50mm and not to be missed a Leica MP or what I call a stay with me for life camera. The Domke bag has two end pouches perfect for holding film. The front has two pouches for either a passport or moleskin pocket notebook perfect for documenting film shots.

It has a wax type finish to the outer layer of the canvas fabric. Only once have I been caught out in the rain with this bag and the water beaded off with ease and keep all of the gear inside dry. Even the moleskin book was untouched. I’ve learnt to be very careful in the rain as it can interrupt ones day shooting. My advice is be very careful with your camera as they are not 100% weather resistant. Ive found out the hard way 9 times out of 10 they are not. For example the Canon 5D Mark III is not exactly weather resistant they can take very light spray but anything more and you will find the electronics don’t like water. Try stay dry and leave camera’s out of the rain as much as possible or its an expensive disaster waiting to happen.

I’m not sponsored by Domke or any camera brand this is just a review of what I have discovered from using their product over the last year.

It’s really is such an excellent bag.  I now consider myself an emeritus professor of bagology.
