Camera backpacks are must-have for all photographers, but the often come with not enough space for all pieces of equipment. You must carry another bag for your laptop, and if you also like to carry a drone with you for high-quality aerial shots well, you probably have to find a drone carrying case as well. In the end, instead of taking just one backpack with you, you need a pickup truck to carry everything you need. Instead of a pickup truck, we recommend all photographers out there to get the Manfrotto Pro Light Camera Backpack.
This camera backpack looks like a never-ending series of compartments, dividers, and pockets. While from the outside it looks like another adventure pack, when you look inside you’ll find enough space for your camera, lenses, a laptop, and enough room for a DJI Phantom drone, which isn’t the champion of compactness. Manfrotto managed to make all of this space by separating the bag into two main compartments. Each compartment is easily accessible and contains additional dividers for different pieces of equipment. Soft and protective padding will keep your equipment safe, while the water-repellent ripstop nylon will keep it dry. The backpack also features Manfrotto’s CPS (Camera Protection System), “specifically engineered and laboratory tested to guarantee the highest level of protection and shock resistance where it really counts.”
Dividers can house camera body along with different lenses, while at the same having room for the DJI drones. There are side pockets for easy access to camera and lenses so you can take out the camera in time for a perfect shot without even taking it off your back. The backpack looks immensely rugged and durable, and it features lots of side pockets for things like a water bottle, food rations, or some other stuff you want to have a quick access to.
Manfrotto Pro Light Camera Backpack supports a number of drone models, not just the DJI Phantom. The whole list includes 3DR Solo, DJI Phantom 1, DJI Phantom 2, DJI Phantom 2 Vision, DJI Phantom 2 Vision+, DJI Phantom 3 Advanced, DJI Phantom 3 Professional, DJI Phantom 3 Standard, DJI Phantom 4, DJI Phantom 4 Advanced, DJI Phantom 4 Pro, and DJI Phantom FC40. So, if you have the right drone, and a DSLR camera, you can finally carry two of them inside the same bag. Cool, isn’t it?
The Manfrotto Pro Light Camera Backpack allows you to even carry a monopod by adding a bungee cord for attaching the monopod to the backpack. And the pack also has enough space for your laptop. The laptop compartment is placed on the backside and it can house almost all laptop models. The compartment will keep the laptop dry, and for adding an additional layer of protection there’s a fold-out protector that will create “a barrier between the wet outside and dry inside of your bag,” when installed.
The Manfrotto Pro Light Camera Backpack can be yours for $209.99 on Amazon.
