As someone who is always on the move traveling for work with a camera or two and technology in either hand, I am always looking for the bag that can do it all. Tenba recently sent me their DNA 15 Slim Bag to review. The look of the bag is a bit more rugged than what I’m used to, making for a great unisex bag. The functionality and available space were a great fit for me on a still photography shoot day.
WHAT FITS IN THE BAG
I recently used the Tenba DNA 15 Slim for a one day still photography shoot. The camera gear I brought along was my Canon 5d Mark4, 24-105, 100mm macro, 50mm lens, and two spare batteries. I particularly liked the interchangeable velcro padding. I’m constantly changing the lenses I use and it makes it easy to do so. The bag is able to store up to a DSLR or mirrorless camera and offers a large amount of room in the main area.
The messenger bag allows room for things other than just your camera and lenses too. The rear padded sleeve is able to store my 13 inch laptop, and additional sleeve is able to protect an iPad or similar size tablet. Some features that I found to be extremely helpful while on the move were the Special Whisper hook, Quick Access Top Zipper, Fidlock Patented Magnetic Clips.
Special Whisper Hook
The Special Whisper hook allows the user to open and close the bag with almost no noise. This feature is perfect for those who do a lot of traveling in public areas that tend to be quieter.
Quick Access Top Zipper
The Quick Access Top Zipper allows a secure exchange of cameras and lenses without having to open the front flap. This is perfect for those who do a lot of shooting and want a quick shortcut to minimalize the process.
Fidlock Patented Magnetic Clips
The Fidlock Patented Magnetic Clips are the quickest clips in the world and allow the user to open in even the most difficult of situations.
Overall, the “DNA 15 Slim Bag” is perfect for travelers who want to minimize their experience and increase productivity when documenting their experiences. I’m looking forward to continuing to use this bag on still photography shoots in 2018.
