A good bag for full-frame cameras
on June 27, 2015
I bought the ZUMA 4 mainly to use with my full-frame SLRs, a Nikon D700, FE2 and F100. The center camera cradle easily holds a camera with a 5" or so lens attached, while the two side pockets are roomy enough to each fit a fairly fat lens, even when fitted with today's stupid-big lens hoods. One pocket will accommodate an 8.5" lens, and the other pocket will take a 5.5" lens since the right side of your camera has to fit above this pocket. In addition to my Nikons, I was also able to fit my Pentax 6x7 and its three lenses into the ZUMA 4. I don't have a tablet, but I still appreciate having a long, zipping compartment to secure books, magazines or film in. One feature I especially like is that I don't have to zip the flap to carry the bag by its handles. This is convenient when quickly changing shooting positions. My only disappointment with the bag is its somewhat short strap. I'm 6'1" so when I wear the bag across my chest it's a little too high on my hip. In addition, the strap just has a short pad that slides around and doesn't provide much grip when carrying the bag on my shoulder. I used gaffer's tape to hold it in place, but may replace it eventually with a more substantial pad. Still, I wouldn't want to wear this bag on my shoulder all day while walking around a city or vacation spot. But it's a good travel bag for today's larger cameras and lenses.
