Photographers are Abuzz Over Manfrotto’s New Bumblebee Bags and Backpacks


Sleek, stylish, lightweight, and refined are but a few of the words photographers are using to describe the new Pro Light Bumblebee Camera Backpacks and Bags from Manfrotto. Constructed from water-resistant nylon with red zipper pulls and matching accents, the M-10 bag holds a DSLR, 24-70mm f/2.8, 2 lenses, flash, and a 13" laptop. A bit larger, the M-30 ups the capacity to a 70-200mm f/2.8, 3 lenses, and a 15' laptop. Each bag features noise-free fabric closure, touch-fastening dividers, numerous pockets, and elastic side straps for a mini tripod. For added honey, they also have an AirSupport back and harness system, and a wide top handle that doubles as a trolley strap.

Similar in style to the bags, the backpacks are designed for photographers who wish to stray farther from the hive, and/or carry more gear. The 130 pack stores a DSLR with attached 70-200mm or 400mm f/2.8 lens, 3-8 additional lenses, and a 15" laptop. Going with the 230 model adds 2 more lenses, and increases the laptop size to 17". Welcome features include, front and top gear access, side pockets for a tripod and water bottle, padded dividers, waist belt with zip pocket, padded shoulder straps with connector, mesh back panel, and daisy chain strap attachment points. Wherever your wings may take you, your gear will stay dry with the included rain covers. Whether you’re in the market for a new bag, pack, or both, come see what the buzz is about for the new Pro Light Bumblebee Camera Bags and Backpacks.
