So let me talk a little a story about this bag and why this was recommended to me to check out. It goes back to the conversation of looking for camera bags for mobile photographers. Kate Hailey recommended I look at this bag Mirrorless Mover 30i and the My 2nd Brain bags. She knows I’m on the quest to look for the ideal mobile photographer bag to carry all my small gear. Kate is a portrait and lifestyles photographer based out of Seattle, Washington. She is also a mobile photgrapher, just like me and you can “contact Kate” if you’d like to know more about her mobile and photographic work. Back to the bag story, well it turns out she knows quite a few people in the industry but she said, “that slowly she has gone to buying thinkTANK bags.” It’s because Kate likes the way they’re made and the quality of the bags. Thanks to Kate I finally emailed thinkTANK and asked them to review their products. So check out Kate Hailey !!!
This is the backside of the Mirrorless Mover 30i as you can see the bag has a belt loop so you can slide in a belt and attach to a larger camera bag or your luggage handle.
The front of the camera bag has a magnetic flap to open and shut easily. Sometimes you want quick access to your front pockets and this flap lip makes that handy.
Now you can unzip the pockets and you will find a seam-sealed rain cover included. This is great for those unexpected rainy days that happen while you’re shooting. I find this to be handy out in the desert too. When the wind is blowing hard and you don’t want sand to get in your camera bag. It also has other nifty little pockets in the front pocket as well.
Now inside is very room and very adjustable with all the different divers inside. I like that this bag is smaller than the Urban Reporter, so I can fit the gear I need and not worry about the getting knock around inside. If I want to I can get things like their Memory Wallet and Cable Management 10 V2.0 to pack in my Mirrorless Mover 30i bag. I could even pack a couple of those Sony Smartphone lenses and/or a point and shoot in this bag too. The best part about this bag is you can slide in your iPad or iPad mini with you on your mobile adventure. You can see where the folder part is and where you slide in your iPad. You can slide in most 10″ tablets in that folder too. That pocket folder has lots of room, so if your iPad has a case it in that’s OK because it still fits. That is why there’s an “i” after the 30 because of this feature added to the bag.
There is also a mesh pocket on the sleeve of the bag so you can put in your cables and other small things in that pocket.
Pockets on each end of the bag sides. One pocket has a little more room than the other so you can pack like a quick snack on the go with you.
The strap is just like on My 2nd Brain, metal swivel clip hooks. I really love these kinds of hook clips on the bags. This tells me that your bag will stay secure and won’t break off so easily or over times like plastic does and your strap won’t get all tangled up either. Overall this is pretty close to my ideal mobile photographer bag, I can work with it because you can carry your iPad and adjustable compartments on the inside. I also like the fact that it’s smaller than most Mirrorless Camera bags on the market. The Mirrorless Mover 30i sells for $69.75 which is a deal because you have lots of durability and room to work with this bag. So with Christmas coming and you know someone whose a serious mobile photographer then get this bag for them, it’s even great for the serious point and shooter and mirrorless shooter too.
