Handling and Performance
The Manfrotto Diva 15 bag is very much one for the ladies as it is designed to resemble a handbag or shopping bag. It allows you to inconspicuously transport your camera whilst also having space for plenty of other things. It is available in black, navy and white. We took a look at the navy edition.
- Multifunctional bag for everyday activity
- Protective removable Mirrorless camera insert
- 10 inch tablet slip pocket
- Designed to accommodate your everyday personal gear
- Plenty of easily accessible pockets
- Water repellant
It's relatively easy to remove the insert to place your equipment in, and the insert can then be secured in place within the bag by a tab which slots through a loop. If you have lots of things in the bag, this can be quite fiddly to do. A tablet can easily be slid into the pouch and secured by a velcro strap. The only possible issue is that your camera insert could get buried under other things you place in the bag, such as a jumper or your shopping, making it difficult to quickly access your equipment. The insert can be completely removed, so the bag can also be used as a regular handbag when you don't need your equipment.
Value for moneyThe Manfrotto Diva 15 retails at £49.95, which is a little on the expensive side for a bag with only a small camera capacity. This bag is quite unique in its style, and so there aren't that many close competitiors on the 'handbag' style camera bag that holds only a mirrorless style camera. Some that come close are the Pompidoo range, which are designed more for DSLRs and multiple accessories, and the Kelly Moore B-Hobo Bag.
