What Camera?

The Cloak Bag was designed to solve a problem many travelers face when carrying their expensive cameras in less reputable areas; how to keep your camera out of sight yet still ready at a second’s notice when you are out exploring. It is the first bag of its kind, allowing full access to the camera without the need to take it out of the bag.

    Hey,
    nice Idea =) I know the Problem too – get your cam fast out of your bag, don´t look like a camera bag (thieves & get rid of the tourist style)

    But some questions are open:
    Is there a soft cover on the base to protect the lens ? (not really good visible on the pictures)
    How can I use the zoom-function of the SLR-Lens ?
    Whats about the Canon 24-70mm in it ? And if i change the Lens to a Canon f1,4/f1,8 50mm still compatible or only half sight ? ^^- different sizes of different lenses

    But go on – waiting on V2 in the camera-store at the next corner 😛

    Functional yet good-looking solution. Would love to see one in leather.

    looks like a zipe-able base which would need to be opened before walking around. Zoom lenses? well, they stick out when you zoom. Those with lenses that extend while pointed down, will have the lens visible below the bag. Can't tell how the hand is fitted through the bag. If not, then you need to skinny the camera up a bit: not much help in the speed department.

      Still a bit more speed than digging it out of your handbag or backpack, I think. Presumably you could get varying sizes for different kinds of cameras/lenses. Maybe a zip-on extension.

    It looks like there's a zippable base to protect the lens and a zipper along one of the edges so that you can access your zoom. And it appears that the length of the bag is also expandable, so it'll fit your long zoom lenses, or you can shorten it for a smaller set-up. Pretty sweet bag!

    Neat idea! Good way to potentially keep your camera safe from rain, too, depending on the material.

    Nice – a solution for several problems. For quick-use, limited function snapping with some weather protection – could definitely be a plus.

    However – the 'less reputable area' bit doesn't convince me. If you're paranoid about thieves noticing your fancy camera, what must it look like to them as you put your fancy little urban sack up to your face and start fiddling with it. Not too stealth. If that is the primary goal – to foil undesirables – then it oughta look like a paper bag with a liqour bottle in it.

    I think this will be a great idea for street photographers with small dslrs and a single fix lens.
