Best Camera Bags in the World? The Oberwerth Sling and Weekender!

I've driven German cars, own German cameras, love German pens and stationery, and enjoy German food, but I have yet to review a German camera bag... until now. Thank you Oberwerth for reaching out and allowing me to check out your line-up of camera bags. Oberwerth HQ is very close to Leica HQ, so it's no surprise that many of their camerabags are Leica-centric. I decided to check out two of their Red Dot Edition bags, the Photo Backpack Sling and the Weekender. I have already begun testing these bags in the field, but please enjoy my unboxing and first look. Check out more content on my Instagram account.

First Look: Sigma 23mm f/1.4 and 100-400mm f/5-6.3 for Fujifilm X Mount

Do you need a super-telephoto zoom for your Fujifilm X Mount camera? Do you want to spend less than $1000 USD before taxes? Consider the Sigma 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG DN OS super-telephoto zoom lens. It's big, it's heavy, but it definitely packs an optical punch. This is my first look video. 

1st Impressions: Sigma 23mm f/1.4 DC DN for Fujifilm X-Mount in Chinatown

We finally have Sigma's 23mm f/1.4 DC DN for Fujifilm X Mount. If you wanted to go 100% Sigma lenses in the Fujifilm X Mount ecosystem, you now can. 16mm, 23mm, 30mm, 56mm, 18-50mm, and 100-400mm. That's pretty impressive for a Japanese third-party lens manufacturer.

What's In My Camera Bag (For Work): Wotancraft 18L Pilot Backpack (Sold ...

When I first unboxed Wotancraft's New Pilot 18L Camera Backpack, I knew it would be popular. It was the perfect size for an everyday camera backpack for those that carry a decent amount of gear while working in the field or traveling. It was so popular that Wotancraft sold out of their initial batch right away and quickly started production on their second batch. They even told me not to produce any more videos until they could finish making more, which is now!! 

After a month of using this camera bag in the field, this has become my favourite camera backpack. In this video, I share with you how I pack it out for my current review gear while walking through the streets of Vancouver. Comment down below and let me know if you have any questions.
