Gitzo is a name that may not be a well-known now by newer photographers with such a saturated accessory market. But for the old timers, this is a brand that holds prestige and commands respect. Many companies can come and go in an industry over the course of 100 years, few if any, last that long. Gitzo has managed to hit that mark, and for their centennial celebration, the company is launching their Century Camera Bag Collection.
There will be three bags to make up the collection; a larger messenger bag, a backpack, and a smaller messenger bag. Gitzo says that these are designed for the ‘style conscious’ photographers of the world, and are being built in Italy with a blend of Italian Leather and water resistant Nylon. In terms of style, they are said to have been designed to resemble the look of carbon fiber, so take that for what you will.
The backpack will have room for a medium sized DSLR with an attached 70-200mm lens as well as up to two additional lenses. It is also designed to fit a DJI Mavic Pro with its remote and accessories, so the bag could be a nice fit for you drone junkies. The bag also features dual side access and has space to hold one of Gitzo’s 0 or 1 series travel tripods. The backpack will sell for $299.
The small messenger bag features enough room to hold a mirrorless camera with an attached zoom lens, as well as an additional two lenses -or- a DJI Mavic Pro and some smaller accessories. The smaller messenger bag will also feature a smart magnetic Fidlock system and will retail for $169.
The larger messenger bag will also hold a DSLR with 70-200mm lens attached, as well as 2-3 additional lenses, as well as a protective pocket for the 0 or 1 series Gitzo travel tripods. It will also feature the smart magnetic Fidlock system, which will keep your gear safe while it is inside. All said and done the larger messenger bag will retail for $199.99.
All of these bags are available now worldwide at Gitzo retailers, and more information can be found over on the Gitzo website.
