today we're talking about the in case DSLR pro pack and if this backpack is the perfect camera backpack for you if you're new here my name is Jeff and Dovie I do a lot of filmmaking tutorials a lot of camera views adventure travel all that good stuff so

one of the things that I'm always searching for is the perfect camera backpack there are so many different situations where I'm taking my cameras with me and I need the proper backpack to carry all the gear because I'm not just bringing a camera I'm bringing drones and bringing

gimbals and bringing all different sorts of things and different configurations of my gear I can never find a good bag that I'm happy with however this DSLR Pro Pack is actually really good and it's something that I've been using for a while now so before we get into

the review and I kind of show you how this bag works and all the features about it and things that I'd like about it I do want to tell you that this bag was sent to me for free I was not paid by incase to do this review

they just sent me their bag to test out and I actually do really like it and one more note is that I didn't just get this bag like a couple days ago and now I'm reviewing it I've spent the last couple months taking this bag everywhere that I

possibly can and actually using it in real-life settings because one of the things with a camera backpack is you need to know if it works in your workflow and if you need to know if it works in multiple settings you can't just pick up a bag and think

that it works there's definitely been bags in the past that I've purchased that I'm like this bags amazing and then I take it out on my first shoot and I'm like this bag sucks and then I get rid of it because there's just things that happen when you're

actually working with gear and your bag dictates how that workflow goes out in the field on a shoot in any situation so a good bag is super important so I've taken this bag I've taken it traveling I've taken it on day shoots I've taken it hiking I've done

me a lot of different stuff with it so let's get into my review of this bag and so you can see all the features about it [Music] this is the in case DSLR Pro Pack and as you can see it's a pretty sleek designed bag it's black there's

not a ton of like extra things hanging off of it I like it because it just looks very clean now the way this bag is designed is that there is like a core module and you can see when I flatten down everything that it still has this whip

to it and that's because when you open it up you can see that it's got basically a divided section that holds its rigidity in place which is a good thing for camera gear now you could completely take all this out and then it would be a much softer

bag that squishes but honestly for purposes of what we're doing cameras and all that you're gonna want to leave this in in the past I like to work with bags that are basically soft bags where you build cases within it for example my maverick air is in a

separate case what I would do is I'd put all my pieces of gear in separate cases like this so that I could just reach into my bag and grab out the piece of gear that I want this bag is designed a little differently where you don't need to

have these kind of separate cases for each pieces of gear because you have this interior module that basically holds the rigidity so it actually works in your favor and I didn't used to like using bags like this until I really got my hands on this bag because before

now they're big they're bulky and a lot of the bags I worked with I just didn't like the look of them this one like I was saying it's much sleeker bags so I feel like you know walking around like a city with this I'm not drying as much

of attention as if I have like a big camera bag that has that big square form it's still not a tiny bag but it's definitely not massive either this is a great sized bag for all your gear now for me when I'm looking at a bag I want

a bag that can hold all the gear that I potentially will take on a trip whether it's a day trip or a few day trip and the other thing I want to look at is how I can use the bag so this bag is really good for like

a city kind of adventure like a day trip but nothing where you get too extreme on hiking or anything like that and that's because if you look on the back here you've got your two straps which are actually very comfortable you've got your chest harness here which is

nice because it holds the camera it takes the weight off your shoulders however as you can see on the bottom there is no hip strap and so for if you're doing like extreme hiking you're going out for a long day with this pack on your back you're gonna

want to hip straps so that's one thing that this bag doesn't have that I did take this out hiking I tried it in a few scenarios where I was out on the go and the hip strap is something that was definitely missing and I wish that I had

another thing for like longer days like hiking and all that is a water bottle holder which this one does not have as you can see on both sides you have the tripod holder on one side and then this side is a pocket which is nice to hold things

but there's no water bottle holder and one thing that bothers me in general about camera cases is that where's the water bottle holder a lot of times we only have this bag on us and we need to be able to carry water because we are shooting we're working

we're moving we need to have water that's just something you always have on you as a as a shooter at least something I always have so those are the two things that I think this bag is missing which like a hip strap would be great if it was

something that was interchangeable where you could stick it on if you need it for like the longer trips where you're going out hiking or something and then just a water bottle holder on the side now as a whole I really do like this bag though I mean those

are the only two things that really stood out that I really disliked so let me show you as I pack it kind of how you can fit gear in here and why I like this bag so much more than a lot of the other bags that work with

this bag I have been using non-stop for the last like month and I don't plan to stop using it because this bag works very well now beyond the water bottle and the hip strap which isn't that big a deal this goes with me whenever I'm traveling whenever I'm

like exploring the city or doing like a day shoot this is the bag that I take now if I'm going like hiking or something I do have other bags that I take that are made for more adventurous outdoor kind of activities but this bag is your perfect like

all-around bag and I do really enjoy that to pack this bag there's a few different compartments now when you lay it on its back one thing that really makes this one stand out is to access your cameras you have two ways you open the back and you have

your big zippers here now what makes this nice is that you can just flip these back unzip and there is all your gear your straps don't get in the way which is annoying if a camera bag has straps of getting away but you can access everything the other

way that you get your gear is this quick pouch right at the top you unzip this and you have access to like your main camera body and a few other pieces or lenses on the sides here so you have like your cameras that you need up top that

you could just grab and go and then all the rest you hear back here that's not that hard I just set this on the ground like this open it up and go and another thing if you had hip straps would be that you're able to you know hold

it like this and pull your gear out and this one you can't do that so another thing to keep in mind but I just throw it on the ground it's really easy to pull my gear out and go alright so let's pack this up now typically when I

go shooting I have my main camera body which will go up top here so have quick access to it I'll also put some of the other lenses that I use up top here so that when I open the top I have access to these might throw a lens

down here that I'm not gonna use as much my microphone I'll put up here mini tripod I will also slip up here and then as we get deeper into the bag you see how much more space that I have I'm gonna throw my Mavic controller I'm gonna put

my drone in here right there I'm gonna put my lens filters in D filters you always got to have them I am going to put this tripod head we're gonna put a hard drive just stuff a bunch of batteries and other things in these pouches down here still

have room in this pocket I've room in this pocket you could fit a ton of gear this is drone camera for lenses filters batteries hard drives the other cool thing is when you open it you have this pouch here which all my cables will go here so power

cables charging cables extra batteries anything you've three pockets that allow you to basically put all your stuff in so that's where all my cables go and that is the main apartment alright so when you open this on the top unzips right there you have your camera good to

go take a photo to your video stick it back in and this is one of the strongest bits about this bag is you have that on the top which makes it very accessible to always pull out your camera and shoot a lot of other bags you don't have

that access so you're holding the camera in your hand typically when I'm out like traveling or like in a city or something I don't always want to carry my camera so having quick access to it makes a huge difference okay on the front is separate than the rest

of the bag so you can see the the cameras are on the main compartment and then here you have a big pocket which has a slip for your laptop and you can throw some other stuff in this that's a 15 inch macbook pro right there you can put

some other things in here but for now that's all I'm gonna put in that pouch and now you still have all this space on the front so I'm gonna unzip this which is a really cool pocket and something that I really like about this bag and that is

you have this which kind of pops up and you have a big space here one of the issues that I always have is carrying a gimbal and I don't want to have to take apart a gimbal to put it in my bag pull it out reassemble it so

I've got my a soon a1 s which is a great gimbal and you can see I just throw it right in here and it fits perfectly so I can pull that when I need it I also have my little mini smarta electric slider which I've been taking with

me recently all right and so I have these bigger objects that are awkward and that's kind of what the best part about this bag is is you have this pocket that you can use for anything you want and so if you have Awkward gear that doesn't necessarily fit

in little compartments like you have on the other side for all your camera bits this is the perfect pocket and it's big enough where you can put a full gimbal in here and not have any issues with space and having to pull it apart or do anything like

that and I still got plenty of space in this pocket to put some other things if I needed it now on the front here and slip my hand in you can see this is just another pocket and that is everything that I carry with me and it fits

nicely in here and in the way that this sits on your back it's actually very comfortable you got your chest strap here like I was saying you can adjust it it's one of the more comfortable bags that I've used in terms of having gear on me now without

that hip strap it does tend to start getting heavy after a long day but that just depends on what it is that you're shooting if you're gonna go out hiking I don't know if I'd necessarily recommend this bag for hiking it's not a hiking bag one more thing

before we go when we look at this top bit here one thing that I hope that gets changed on the next iteration of this bag is that this handle if you have the zipper open a little bit it will start opening this top pouch so you have to

be careful to make sure that your zippers always closed so that when you pick up your bag that the zipper doesn't open it and your cameras are exposed and it's just one of the things when I first started using this bag I didn't realize that and this would

kind of pop open a little bit so you got make sure your zippers always close when you're using this top handle otherwise you could just pull it up using the back hands and so that's all my gear in the bag and this is typically what I'm gonna use

to go out traveling or go out for like a day shoot this is my setup and I can put everything I need in here and it's not too heavy to carry on my back because the straps are nice [Music] there's definitely not a perfect bag that's gonna address

the needs for everyone in every situation I like this bag and I like it for specific settings and then there's other bags that I like for when I'm doing other things like hiking so guys let me know in the comments below what you think about the DSLR pro
