We’re big fans of ThinkTank bags here at Photofocus. They make bags that are designed by photographers for photographers. I’ve never seen one of their bags I don’t like. But when I heard about their new line of bags designed for mirrorless cameras, I was excited to get my hands on one.
I picked the Think Tank Mirrorless Mover 30i Bag, which is the largest of the series. It will hold an iPad or other similarly-sized tablet and one medium to large size mirrorless body plus two to four lenses, and additional accessories or a smallsize DSLR and one to three small telephoto lenses or primes. It is sized for the Fuji XPro 1, Leica M8, Panasonic GH3 or similar sized/smaller bodies. Small DSLRs: Canon Rebel, Nikon D3200/D5200, Sony SLTA55/A37 or similar sized bodies.
As usual the bag is meticulously made, with top-shelf materials. It is very configurable and has a built-in rain cover. It can be worn on your belt or you can use the comfortable strap that comes with the bag.
As usual the zippers are incredibly well made and the whole bag just feels good in your hands.
At $69.95 it may seem expensive since it’s really quite small, but if you know the typical strength, quality and utility of ThinkTank bags you’ll understand that this is a good value.
The only feature I don’t understand about this bag is the magnetic closure. Which is a neat idea but it appears to be facing backwards.
In any event, there are lots of little places to put batteries, chargers, memory cards, cleaning cloths, blowers and more.
My favorite feature is the built-in tablet carry slot. I can see myself more and more just going with this one small bag and the Fuji X100s, iPad or my Olympus OMD body with several lenses and the iPad. It’s a dream come true for those who want to travel light, but still have the protection for their gear they need.
As an avid mirror-less supporter I applaud ThinkTank for coming up with a solution that works.
