The Photographer’s Pouch is made by Photojojo in the US of A. But it can get shipped internationally for quite a bit of a fee. It was designed by Will Kortum to make life a little easier for us. Let’s get into the nitty gritty.
The pros? It’s fits a lot of accessories. The size is perfect and wasn’t expected, so that was a pleasant surprise. It’s flexible enough to hold a lot without bulking up your bag, making it as light and compact as they claimed. I was able to fit 2 batteries (NP-FW50), a Hoya UV Filter, a Spudz microfiber cloth, a 2GB SD card and a compact flash for the NEX 5R with enough space to include a filter.
Surprisingly enough, it left quite a small footprint. You even have enough space to slide in a lens cap between the strap and boom, never lose them again.
Cons? The velcro at the back was one of the main selling points, but only works with certain camera bags. One of such would be the Billingham Hadley Pro, which already comes at a hefty price. Also, it’s $15. There are some alternatives out there on Amazon which can also serve the same function.
I recommend still buying this as it’s supplied by a trustworthy company. It’s true when they say you shouldn’t invest in gear that is sold by 1st parties as that only bumps up the price, but Photojojo is based on accessories and the materials used to made this thing ensures that this thing will be in my bag for the long run.
Photojojo is a company based off of California and are dedicated towards photography, they have their own blog too! But they’ve established a really nice community, and they’re reliable for sure. I even got a little “Stow-away-a-saurus” along with the pouch.
So at the end of the day, it is something that you should get once you’ve got your gear down. It’s compact, light and a nifty little thing.
