Forever on the hunt for the perfect bag, and never quite managing to find it, I decided I’d create my own! I chose a Tenba Tools BYOB10 insert – meaning ‘bring your own bag’ – and a plain rucksack to put it in to. These ingenious bag inserts mean I can turn any bag – handbag, rucksack or otherwise – into a fully padded camera bag for my equipment.
The BYOB10 fits my camera body, plus 18-300mm, 10-20mm & 105mm macro lenses in comfortably with extra storage for things like memory cards in the side and front pockets. The zip opens a flap, away from you, and it comes with enough dividers to configure it how you could use it most efficiently with your kit.
Now my new best friend, I’ve even put the insert into handbags, which is perfect for disguising that you are walking around with thousands of pounds worth of kit on a busy London tube! Next time you’re on the hunt for camera bag nirvana, try a BYOB insert and do things your own way…I’m totally converted, and will never spend countless hours unnecessarily bag shopping when I could instead be out shooting!
