I haven’t had a proper bag/protection for my new Fujifilm X100T and wanted something that matched the main reason I bought the camera. Size. I’m really picky/vain when it comes to my camera bags. Or….anything for that matter. But this time I was trying to aim for function before looks. Since I’m a Think Tank fan I just bought a Mirrorless Mover 5.
I knew it was borderline manpurse, but I tried to be practical. On my way home from the store I observed the bag on the passenger seat. I started having second thoughts.
When I got home and I showed the bag to my wife she kind of stopped in motion…looked at me….looked at the bag and said: “You bought that? It looks like a manpurse. I thought you were going to buy a fancy leather bag”.
I thought to myself: “Wtf”.
The next day I went back to the store. I already have the Retrospective 20 so I thought why not a smaller version? There is the Retrospective 5 but hesitant to buy something that close to a manpurse I chose the Retrospective 7.
The bag is considerably bigger than the first manpurse, Mirrorless Mover 5, but it can double as my Monday-Friday bag holding the X100T and for example an iPad. I was also considering using my Retrospective 20 as my X100T bag. But it would take me ten minutes to just find the camera in bag :)
So far I’m happy with the bag. It has good dimensions. And it can hold necessities like extra batteries, chewing gum, an umbrella and….well….a few beers :)
If you want more information about the bag, let me know in the comments.
