Review

On shorter hikes, I like to take my Canon M50 for a spin to get some really beautiful shots and use my Röde VideoMicro for epic sound and I needed a camera case which will fit the camera just right. So, why the Jimmy Bo 200?

 

Why the Jimmy Bo 200?

At 207g it’s not the heaviest of camera cases and it has just enough room for my camera, meaning it won’t take up more room than it needs to. It’s very secure, comfortable and well-padded. I’ve used it on the Welsh 3,000s and other hikes and it’s held up really well.

 

What’s there not to like?

The fact it’s not waterproof may deter some folks, but I tend to use my Atom Packs DCF Pack Liner for keeping everything in my pack dry. I also removed the shoulder strap to shave some weight off as I never used it. Once the camera is out of the bag, I’d use the shoulder strap on that or hold it using my Gorilla Pod 1K.

 

Value for money

At just £28 it’s a good quality camera bag and keeps my M50 free from bumps and scrapes. Sure there are cheaper options out there, but it fits my camera with the 18-150mm lens just right.
