Petrol PD443 Dr. DSLR camera bag
Today I took delivery of a new Petrol Bags PD443 Dr. DSLR shoulder camera bag to house my Canon C100 and associated kit.
It came with a layout suited to a smaller DSLR so I had to remove every divider and start again to configure it for the C100. As you can see the C100 will fit across the bag with a Tamron 17-55mm F2.8 lens attached plus 4.5inch Zacuto rods. I’m also able to include taller items like my Canon 70-200mm F4 L and the C100 handle to one side, while at the other side I have placed shorter items like tie mics and the Ninja 2 and its associated kit. On top of this I have my Petrol LCD Mini Hood sun shade (not shown) and follow focus.
In case you are wondering the C100 will fit with its handle attached but not in the configuration I am using. The handle would need to be fairly central with the camera orientated along the length of the bag – and it will be a snug fit.
There are 2 large side pockets, one having several pouches inside to hold pens and tools etc.
The PD443 is described as Doctor Bag style where the 2 top sides come together by means of a zip safely enclose the contents. There are 2 carrying hands at the top which lock together plus an adjustable shoulder strap.
Overall I’m very pleased with the bag. It’s very well made and is sturdy enough to last for years.
