The Best Landscape Photography Camera Bag | F-Stop Ajna camera bag review


I think I finally found the best camera
back from my landscape photography welcome to my channel this video is not
sponsored by Squarespace Wix or any of the brands that I’m going to mention so
if you want to support me just subscribe to my channel so as you can see I have a lot of camera
bags and in my mind each one of these bags has its own place
and function but lately I’ve been a little frustrated with my main camera
bag situation which is sorry for the noise which is the f-stop guru
I think this bag is not available anymore in this version they have a
lighter version but anyways what is the problem with this the problem is just
that is too small since I’ve been taking videos and I always have a second camera
and two more lenses and the GoPro and its accessories everything is to squeezed
inside here and mainly the problem is that I need to leave some of my lenses
behind I’ve been using the f-stop guru for more than four years and I’ve been
very happy with it but I finally decided to look for a new bag and I checked many
different options different brands and in the end I decided actually to stay
with f-stop and I got the f-stop I think it’s called AJNA clearly it’s a bigger
bag this is the 40 litres bag versus the 25 of the guru it is built with the same
strong material of the guru and in the ajna this material actually is also
water resistant it is not completely waterproof but if it starts to rain your
camera and your lenses are going to be safe for a certain amount of time the
Ajna works like all the f-stops bags with this ICU system which is a an
internal compartment unit where you store your gear and i will show you how
in a second in this case i can fit a larger ICU, which i think is actually the ICU large Pro versus the ICU medium that
I was using before but the good thing is that even if it’s a larger bag it’s
still a carry-on so when I travel I can actually bring it with me and in case
they would give me some problems I can actually take the ICU out carry with me
and check in the back in the last four years have stopped I think did a great
job in developing a lot of different storage possibilities and I will show
them to you very very shortly and I will also finally pack this bag with whole
take gear that I usually travel with now let’s have a look at the back this is
the front and this is the back and in the back we have this big opening where
you will find the ICU this part in fact is the one that is fully removable as
you can see there is a lot of space to store your camera and your lenses little
later I will actually try to fit all the gear that I usually carry with me inside
and we will have a look at this together but for now I just want to show you all
the different compartments and actually some of it starts right here in fact on
this lip we have first pocket right here I still didn’t figure out what are these
for they look like film camera rolls but I’m
not sure what they are so if you know write me in the comments thanks
let’s have a look at the other compartments on both sides we have a
very big pocket like this and yes true there is another one right here so a lot
of space a lot of storage right here on the very top we have a first big zip
pocket with some kind of net to organize your different gear and we do have a
bigger pocket that will give you kind of access to the ICU but also so you can
actually fill this part with clothes or whatever else you need to carry with you
and here I don’t know if you can see there is a pocket where you can actually
put your laptop and I think this can fit up to a 15 inches laptop I have a 13
inches laptop store I’m totally fine with this more organization storage here
and then a huge pocket right here so definitely a
lot more storage than I had in the Guru these straps can of course make your
back tighter and smaller but also will help you to carry a tripod right here
okay let’s see if my gear can fit inside so I am filming with my iphone right now
because I put all the gear that I want to fit in my new f-stop bag right here
on the floor and as you can see I have all sorts of things I have a tripod the
big tripod the smaller tripod GoPro tripod poles most batteries computer
external monitor microphones the Nikon d810 the Panasonic G85 my ND filters my
lens is the GoPro gloves first aid kit chargers all sorts of things I also put
right here what is not going to fit in my bag which is the drone the batteries
and the ND filters for the drone I know really this is not going to fit but I
hope that all these is going to so let’s see I’m very pleased with this bag because I
was able to fit everything I wanted and not only I can fit all my gear inside it
but I actually find that it’s quite easy to access everything which was my main
problem with the other bag this is a keeper of course as I thought the drone
and its batteries will not fit here but I always travel with a different bag
to carry my drone so that’s fine and this concludes my
review of the f-stop Ajna bag. I hope you enjoyed this video thanks for watching
and I’ll see you in the next one

  1. Have you tried the Shimoda Designs’s Explore 40 or 60?
    They look like awesome bags, maybe even better than the Ajna. I’m waiting for their UK store to become available so I can get one.

  2. Found your channel tonight and subscribed immediately. This is going to be fun. Your accent is fantastic and for a 58 year old man (me) – I only wish I had hair like yours!!

  3. Hi Attilio – thanks for another cool review I like th elook of the FStop I have just purchased theLowepro ProTatic and find i can get everythign in plus my DJI Mavic I got it for £185 I was going to put the link on but it would be affiliated so I did not want to be cheeky !

  4. Sir I liked your camera bag…!!! I use small bag PINBALL DYNAMITE FOCUS Camera Bag (Black). This is small an handy it's pretty gud.

  5. Hello man, you carry a lot in this backpack, do they let you carry this bag with hand luggage when you travel by plane?. How much is weighing this backpack with everything inside?

  6. Hi Attilio – I upgraded from the Lowepro bag that you also have to the Ajna. Superb, rugged bag with loads of practical space. Would thoroughly recommend it to others. If there is a down-side it gets a little heavy with all my gear, but that's down to me. For day-shoots I tend to figure out what I really need then use the Lowepro so the two work together well depending on use.

  7. Hello Attilio, I am looking at the same bag right now to replace my Peak Design Everyday 20l. I need a bag enough comfortable for a long walk to carry all my gear.
    1) How comfortable is Anja for a day trip ?
    2) Have you tried to weight your full equipped bag ? Mine is 12 kg or 26 pounds
    3) I understood this bag is NOT waterproof but more resistant to water for a short period of time, right ? So, we would need to buy their rain cover accessory.
    Many thanks for your answers and please continue your videos, they are great and absolutely useful.
    Cheers Fred

  9. CIAO Attilio gentilmente mi dici la marca dello zanio piu grosso? poi secondo te riesco a farci stare mavic2 ,radio comando ,batterie n2, occhiali gooless della dji(sono belli grossi), macchina fotografica sony alfa6000, obbiettivo e cianfrusaglie varie. grazie mille marco

  10. Brilliantly done Attilio. Your video's are always clear and concise, and this one is no exception. I love your bag and will be checking out prices for it over here in U.K. Thank You.

  11. Good one! Here is my opinion on camera bags suitable for nature & travel photography – https://youtu.be/qHn-TdhKY4I

  12. I've been researching this bag and stumbled across your terrific channel. Loved the review, especially the real life example of how much gear it can really hold! I'm not sure I could carry it all, but it's great to see what you can truly put into the bag. I really like the modular design of these bags, including the ability to remove the ICU in a pinch when traveling by air, or even swap out the ICU for a smaller one (giving more room for non-photo gear)

    My question is about carrying tripods. I see you often carrying two tripods. Several other reviews commented that securing a tripod was not especially good on this bag (in their opinion, compared to other brands). They thought that using the side pockets was an afterthought. To me, this doesn't look like an oversight by Fstopgear, as they have a separate tripod bag that looks like it would attach to the many attachment points on the main bag. Did you ever consider their tripod bag or try it? I would think that it would supply a bit of extra protection from the elements for your tripod (for those of us that don't live in sunny California 😉

    Again, great channel. I appreciate all the effort you put in to your videos, and creating a broader community with your Lightroom Challenges.

  13. Attilio, your should try the Atlas Adventure Pack. It is second to none. You can adjusted to your height, it is very strong, no need to buy additional stuff where you fit your gear. It is a small American firm that it is very friendly. They have a ‘special feature’ calles origami where I am almost sure you can carry your drone. The best I have seen so far. Thank you again for your great videos.

  14. Excellent review. Check out the Atlas bags. I’m even more impressed with my new Atlas bags. Taking the Adventure bag to the Faroes next week. Can’t wait! Thanks for a great channel.

  15. Always enjoy watching your video's Attilio. Besides Fstop, 2 other bags you need to review are Atlas and Shamoda. With Fstop, to many add on's need to be bought, for example you did not highlight where you can keep your water bottle, because if you want one, you have to buy it, likewise with weather cover, and so forth and so on. There are also three other non photo bags, geared more to backpacking that can be used for photography which are Deuter, Osprey and Gregory , all you need to do is add a ICU.
