Ive been looking at one of these for awhile, make all the jokes you want...

http://www.shootsac.com/

Ive been interested in a light carry bag for weddings with easy access to my lenses and flashes. This seems like the ticket, aside from the price tag. I will be able to see and test one this weekend at the wedding photog. convention. Ill take some pics of it and give you my thoughts.

that Shootsac is pretty cool... too "metrosexual" for my taste but look very handy

^ its designed to be stylish, but im really interested in it for function. Its a safe, light, bag that can carry all my essentials.

I like it! Functionality is primary. I'm looking into a new bag too but this is out of my price range....

You know my opinion.

Get inserts for my Speedy 30, or even my Neverfull, and we will be good to go.

I'm really not a big fan of those bags.

That thing looks like it would be an annoying floppy bag.

That thing looks like it would be an annoying floppy bag.

thats what I thought originally, but alot of wedding photogs swear by them. I guess the added weight of the lenses keeps it hugging your body so its not flopping all over the place.

I mean it looks like it has little to no structure and would make getting things in and out a pain.

I used one yesterday and I actually liked it alot. Its tight so the lenses dont wabble around, it does hun against your body and is light and think. It Holds a few lenses, cards, batteries, ect. The 70-200 IS does fit although a little tight, but its nice to know its not going anywhere. Doesnt look too bad in black either. I think this is the route I will take.

that is not stylish at all.

$200 for a cubic yard of neoprene? **** THAT!

$200 for a cubic yard of neoprene? **** THAT!How much would that cost to make and how long would it take? $200 sounds ludicrous.

iunno

i'm going to my specialty store today, so i'll let you know.

neoprene is only like $5ft² so yeah...not much.

Function over form?

:lol:

that only works when the item bought is functional and not fashion... These are pure fashion....

Anyway, I want to see them so I can make my own. Also, why do you guys need them? I thought you had 2 bodies and zooms so you don't have to swap lenses? These were designed for prime shooters no?

subimatt

they actually work really well. They hold multiple lenses and accessories and make them accessible quickly. Its light and doesnt get in the way. They were designed for quick access to lenses and accessories on the fly for wedding shooters. I wasnt sure about them in the beginning but after using one its really nice. holds the 70-200, flashes, cards, cell, ect. but isnt a bulky bag. I liked it. Hate all you want but at the end of the day if it makes things easier for me im happy.

Nice job dude, How hard was it to make? Does it feel sturdy enough? ill post pics of mine with it full when it arrives. Either way I cant wait. Its so convenient to have than a larger bag for events.

it feels awesome, it's super sturdy and comfortable.

and yeah, it was WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY easy to make, an hour tops with no template, i just went for it.

Matt, I don't think anyone's doubting it's a good bag concept, it's that they're $180 for the least expensive to make bag out there. That and you don't shoot primes which is what it's designed for. With 2 bodies, 3 lenses and 2 flashes, I just didn't think it would make sense to buy 2 is all. Unless Leah got the FE for her Bday. :devil:

Do you think Daniel made one because the concept sucked? Nope, just the price... :lol: That's why I also very much want to see it up close so I can see how they are really made. This is also why I was looking at BuiltNY wine bottle holders, because I think they're very similar. Just drop them into some sort of small bag and you've got something similar.

subimatt

Thats the thing, they arnt designed just for prime shooters and there are a few lenses on the list that we will have at some point this year, there is room to grow. The big thing about them is that they are professional looking and make things convenient for the necessities at weddings. I dont mind the price that much either, if it works and gets the job done. Thats just me tho. Plus they are cheaper at adorama.

iunno
04-27-2008, 11:05 AM
i'm just stoked to have made one for 1/20th of the price and an hour of my time.

they're an awesome concept, i'm super stoked on them

yea, its cheaper at adorama than the actual site. They are all black, the colors and patterns are just covers.

You should really specify which that is, because anyone reading this is going to assume it's yours that broke.

Get a half-naked model to advertise them for you and you'll be able to sell them for $200 easy.

yeah, that's my point, the basic black version w/o a cover is $30 less than they are with covers... IE $150 w/o cover (basic black) or $180 with a cover. All prices I've ever mentioned have been adorama prices.... Why, how expensive are they on their actual site??? :lol:

pffffft.

all i have to say is 500% markup.

adorama is making a KILLING on them.

subimatt
04-28-2008, 03:35 PM
I believe they are 180 for just the bag on the main site, no cover. But they have more selection on the main website for covers than adorama. Ours should get here tomorrow.

iunno
04-28-2008, 03:40 PM
dude, 180 for the "base" bag plus another $xx for the interchangeable flaps?

the flaps cost either $49, $59 or $69!?!?!?!?!?!??!?! OMFG DUDE!

iunno
04-28-2008, 03:58 PM
i'm confused. on adorama it lists them as SMALL for $180 with a variety of covers, but on the website it has them as one size for $180+$XX for the cover.

is there more than one size?

DotGrl03
04-28-2008, 04:00 PM
They're all the same size. They are considered "small" camera bags because you can't fit bodies etc. in them.

jacobsen1
04-28-2008, 04:02 PM
I'm glad I'm not the only one confused by the shootsac site....
It took me a solid minute to figure out there is a link to more images there. You'd think they'd want to show off shots of the bag a bit more. Instead they flaunt the covers a bit too much IMHO.

subimatt
04-28-2008, 04:04 PM
^ yea, the site is confusing. Honestly if I didnt get to use one at the wedding shoot, I wouldnt have bought them. But using them was what did it.

:lol:

I dont have many shots of them, you be able to see it in person next time we are out there. Been playing with it seeing what layout I like best and is most comfortable.

It does hold the 30D with and without grip in one of the pouches, and it will hold a 30D with the 24-70+reverse hood attached lens down snug almost holsterish. As I said before its very comfortable as the weight keeps it snug against the body, everything is held tightly in place. Im happy with them, its alot nicer to just grab the bag and go, rather than taking the whole backpack.
