Diva 15 Bag

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.

Manfrotto Diva 15 Bag Handling and Performance

The Manfortto Diva 15 houses your camera insde a protective removable insert, shown below. It has space to hold a mirrorless or advanced compact camera, plus an extra lens or accessories. The insert has a hard shell like lid, and padded sides, enabling you to place things on top of the insert in the bag. The outer bag houses a 10 inch tablet pocket, and two small zipped pockets. It also has a large zipped pocket on the back, and two smaller more padded pockets on the front.

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 money

The 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.

Manfrotto Diva 15 Bag Verdict

The Diva 15 is ideal if you want a versatile bag that doesn't shout 'camera bag'. It will protect your kit, sometimes a little too well as it can be difficult when the bag is full to access your equipment and secure or remove the camera insert. The bag is different from the competition and offers a solution for the woman about town who doesn't want to carry a handbag as well as a camera bag.
