"V1 camera bag"


Hudson, US
          

While looking for a bag to hold my water bottle while jogging, I discovered a V1 bag. The Sport Sac is $7 on Amazon and holds the V1, both lenses and the flash along with a three pack of filters and wipes with room to spare.

Thanks! I currently use this, but it does not fit the lenses:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0032FPVKE/ref=oh_o00_s01_i00_details

So I might give that bottle bag a try. I don't like to use real camera bags for the V1, I need something light that goes into the backpack.

The slingshot is both big and expensive. There is a lot of room however.

I added to my vast ThinkTank collection and got the "Hubba Hubba Hiney" bag. Perfect for the V1. Hold the camera, two lenses and the flash. Works as belt pack and comes with a strap for over the shoulder.

It's just the right size.

Just got the V1 this last week and one of the first bags I pulled out of the bottom of the closet was a ThinkTank SpeedChanger (original version). V1, 10-30, 30-110, flash, gps, and spare battery all fit fine (not a tight squeeze at all) in this bag which is even smaller than the HH Hiney that Rick mentioned. This bag is belt only with no strap attachments however. The Hubba Hubba Hiney may be a better choice if you want to be able to throw a few other items in the bag or want the option of carrying by strap.

Agreed, I had an old one lying around, in fact it's labelled Test Drive Bag. Easily holds V1 with 10-30 attached, 30-110, flash, 2 extra batts, card holder, etc.
Added a snap ring to each of the little "ears" and clipped on an Upstrap for shoulder carry.

Thanks Ron and Kirk, the speed changer sounds like my preference for as small a bag as possible. Would it also fit the FT-1? (I don't have a GPS so don't need room for that)

If you want to carry a little more stuff conveniently, the Domke F-5XB Shoulder/Belt Bag (Black is cheaper) provides a fair amount of space and is not a burden.

The kit includes a V1, 10-30mm, 30-110mm, 35mm f/1.8g, FT1, flash, 55-200mm f/3.5-5.6, tabletop tripod, IR trigger, polarizing filter... you get the idea.

The package provides a lot of flexibility.

Hey Bob,
(1) what are the other little bags on your belt in the photo, and
(2) I didn't get a hood with my 10-30! Where did you get that hood on your camera lens? (I just saw the hood in the Reference Manual p/n HB-N101. Do you know if it fits both the 10-30 and the 30-110 (seems like they would be different depths)? OK I'm answering all my own questions. I see there are different hoods for all three Nikkor 1 zooms and B&H sells them all. Curious that they wouldn't put these with the lenses...

Hi Tom,

The 30-110 comes with the hood, at least when you buy it as a separate item not with the camera.

The 10-30 doesn't come with the camera kit. I wonder if you bought a 10-30 separately whether the hood would then be supplied?

Most people at work that shoot DSLRs don't use their supplied hoods, so in the case of the 10-30 I wonder if Nikon is just responding to "most customers practice".

Actually I had an unpleasant surprise shooting my 10-30 against the light (I might not have had the hood not on yet since they were quick grab shots while a birding group set off on a trip). Anyhow I got a ton of unpleasant flare in waves across the image. The birding group was standing in a loose circle and I moved within the circle shooting in all four directions, two of which were strongly back-lit. Anyhow, the photos were so bad that I don't think I can use them. The interesting thing is it shows up on people with dark clothing, otherwise it just looks like an overall low contrast photo. Anyhow I think the hood (and more careful shooting than I did here) is very important on the 10-30:

Steve,
Did you happen to notice how big that Alien craft was hovering above?

I always use the hoods, I think they were supplied for a purpose and they are good lens protection too.

Looks like everyone's camera bag got snatched.

Yeah Steve,
I guess I learned that the hard way and had to send the hood back to B&H after I received the 30-100 lens. Oh well, I have had to learn harder lessons. It's very possible that I won't use these hoods at all unless I decide to shoot into the sun (I try not to do that).

Occasionally, an even better lens shade is found in the judicious use of a "wide-brimmed" hat.

The small Tamrac on the right holds my table top tripod. On the left is a small bag that I use for my flashlight - a fairly bright Energizer (Night Strike Swivel Head).

I am using an old Lowepro Street and Field Film Organizer Which all weather with a hood, and if I need more room the S&F Utility Case (wider with an extra pocket). Both hold the V1, 10mm and 30-110, with lots of room to spare. Very convenient but no bottle holder. I can carry them with straps or on my belt.

See my website

www.rakmilphotography.com

Last two posts are all V1 shots with the 10mm.

I am looking at the Tamrac 3535 Express 5 Camera bag,
and Zoom Traveler 603 & 604
They looks great online and I have 3 pro bags that I love.

Has anyone used them?
Will they hold the V1 + 10mm, 10-30, & 30-110 lens?

The ThinkTank Slim Changer will take a V1 plus the three lenses you mention. It fits on a belt to which one can add other pouches, e.g., for a water bottle, cell phone, general bits and pieces, etc.
I recently travelled to Africa with this setup for 10 days and have taken a three-day trip locally.
Just loved it!
Hands are free, camera's at the ready almost immediately. It could have been tailor made for a V1 and accessories.

Priced right!
Looks to small for all my stuff.
I am looking at something 10x5x6 inside and an external pocket
that can also be used for a FullSize DSLR with MidSize zoom.
No shoulder strap?
Not a fan of fanny packs, but do see the utility.

I have the Hubba Hubba Hiney that RickPaul mentioned. I am able to carry my D90, 18-200, 50 1.8, a circular polarizer and my Hoodman loupe in the main compartment. In the outside pocket I have my lenspen, cable release, and Pee Wee Pixel Pocket. It comes with a shoulder strap or can be used on a belt. I find it a nice compact package when I want a smaller kit for traveling.

I'm currently using a Lowepro adventura 140 which holds the V1, 10-30mm, 10mm, 30-110mm, Three B&W 40.5mm filters, the GPS unit, the flash, spare battery and memory card, ME-1 mic, and ML-L3 remote. For when I put this bag inside my Aquapac backpack (25L) the FT-1 fits in it too. I put the 35mm f/1.8 in its pouch and 50-150mm f/2.8 in an op-tech pouch in the the back pack. The Sirui T-025 tripod and head fit in the side pouch perfectly.

TT Skin 50. Holds the V1 and all three lenses, CP, extra battery, extra SD. Either on your belt or with a shoulder strap. Take the V1 out and keep it on a strap around your neck or something like a Capture Clip or Spider, and you have even more room in the Skin for junk.

The Tamrac 3444 does a nice job with the V1, 10-30, 30-110, FT1, SB-N5, & GP-N100 (attached). I don’t have the RRS L-brackets yet. I don’t foresee a problem with the one for the camera, but the one for the adapter might make things a little tight because the side piece sticks out so far.
