It really is amazing how we live in an age where we are so dependent on technology, that there are companies that can make a fortune by simply making accessories for them. When it comes to a company known as Case Logic, they make all kinds of bags for a laptop, tablet, not to mention a few for smartphones. They have also made some excellent DSLR bags, and I had a chance to try out the Kontrast DSLR Shoulder Bag.
I have to admit, when it arrived, I thought I had received some kind of lunchbox or some kind of old-school binoculars case. I don't know how much of you will get that reference, if you will even call it that. It's shape is square enough to be a box, but round enough to be ergonomic.
The zipper on top is made to open up and you can insert your DSLR camera. Then there is a place for the camera as well as a lens with this thing that looks like it could hold a drink. You can even take out the lens holder, as Velcro is the only thing that keeps it in there.
Then there are some terrific pockets for whatever. There is one on each side, one in the front, and there is even a pocket on the lid itself. If you have any lens cleaners or lens caps, this is where you can put them, and use them when needed.
Now, carrying this around could feel like you are carrying a heavy burden, but it fortunately comes with a strap. You can know that it will be safe, and the DuraBase gives a sense of security to all you photographers out there.
Yes, this is a definite good accessory to have if you are one of those professional photographers out there. I know several people who haul around a DSLR on a necklace strap, and it looks like the camera is painfully hitting them in the chest as they attempt to pursue the next photographic opportunity. With this Kontrast DSLR Shoulder Bag from Case Logic, it is a way to get professional photographers a chance to carry around some their camera without worrying about their precious equipment getting damaged. Considering that DSLR cameras cost quite a lot these days, this small investment could save big.
You can get the Kontrast DSLR Shoulder Bag on the Case Logic site for about $79.95.
