Lowepro introduced its original pro camcorder bag back in 1976, when a "portable" video camera was an entirely different animal than it is today. It became an instant classic and is still an industry standard today. This Magnum DV 6500 AW is a logical progression forward from that distinguished pedigree, and it offers dozens of convenient features that hobbyists and professionals count on every day.
Most videographers work using their bags for almost every system they need. Microphones live in the bag. Lighting support, too. Filters. Batteries. Memory cards. The list goes on and on, and Lowepro has been listening to every request for many years now. They created this bag specifically for video cameras, with a heavily reinforced, long central camera compartment that accommodates many of today's most popular camcorders. It's designed for instant, "quick-draw" access. A side cut-out protects the eyepiece from rough handling. The floor of the camera compartment has extra-thick padding so it can deal with the sharp edges of camcorder baseplates.
Outside, there's plenty of quick access pockets for accessories, keys, setup charts, and scripts. Lowepro's patented all-weather (AW) cover protects the case from rain, snow and dust, and tucks away in an exterior zippered pocket. There's a padded compartment that will house up to a 15.4" laptop for shoot logging and media management. The carefully engineered shoulder strap features a spine-like structure that ensures even weight distribution, and the bag is airline carry-on compatible (check with your airline about its size and weight restrictions).
