Arguably, the Phoblographer is the first place many folks come to when they want a camera bag: and no, we don’t get them all for free. Every now and then I get bored, surf the web and look around for camera bags; and that’s how I came across the QamaySF All In One Waxed Canvas X Grid Bag. They’re not a well known brand like your Tenba, ONA, Filson, Think Tank, etc. QamaySF is a bag manufacturer here in the US. Rather than hit them up, tell them that I run a large photography blog and use the powers I’ve created over the past six years to get a free product as a review sample, I went ahead and bought one. Why? I wanted the same experience you folks get.
So what makes this bag so special? It promises a heck of a lot. Not only do you get a camera bag that can be a shoulder bag, but it can be a backpack, hold a 15 inch laptop, hold a tripod underneath, has waxed canvas, and can hold a load of gear. Plus, it looks like nothing else really out there.
At least that’s what I thought before purchasing it. Judging from their product photos and promises it seems to make, you’d think to yourself that you’re getting the ultimate camera bag in some ways. But in other ways, it’s the ultimate let down.
