Tank Bag | For Camera
« on: May 31, 2017, 10:06:34 am »


Riding Photographers:

Any recommendation for a tank bag that more or less works 'out of the box'?

Looking for a Tank Bag for my 2017ES.

I often carry my Sony A7  and would like to try and get a Tank bag which would hold that - easy reach, and more secure than storing it in panniers or topbox.
Per other threads, I believe, I would still need to Foam Pad around the camera.

I have the Givi XS308.
I also have a Cannon T3i. I would go out and buy some foam and do that. The 308 has plenty of room for camera with 17-55 lens on and room for 70-250 lens stored plus maybe one other small lens.

Also when not using the camera it is fantastic tank bag all around. You will need the tank ring that is separate from the bag though. But its only like 15 buck.

Ill post pics of the bag on my bike later. But dont have any pics with the camera in the bag.

The 308 also doesnt rest on the tank at all so its scratch free!


Cheers

That looks nicely low profiled. Worth considering. Thanks

Doesn't block my view of the gauges at all. I'm about 5 foot 10.

Answered by question! I'm 5'10" / 32 seam. Looks good. Thanks!

I haven't used a tank lock bag before. Wondering if it is a little hassle if you need to fuel up while on a ride?

The circular clip attachment used on many bags these days is easy to twist on and off. 

And, virtually any tank bag can be used as a photo bag, just put some dividers in it.

Not a hassle at all it is off the tank in under a second. Youtube some videos on it and watch and when its on the tank its solid.

I use this one (Givi). It also expands if needed. I take two cameras with me on longer trips. Two different lenses. I use a small bath towel to separate them

I've been using this guy for around 4 years and 80,000km now and no leaks and no rain cover to install.https://www.dualsportplus.com/product_p/luta-006.htm
