Cravar Rana 10 Leather Camera Bag Review

Cravar Rana 10 Leather Camera Bag Review:

If you’re looking for a premium leather camera bag, and you still haven’t found the one that fits your needs, there is something new that may strike your fancy: the Rana Series by Cravar.  For those who don’t know, Cravar is a manufacturer of premium leather goods, and they have been doing it for a while but now, they have decided to specifically target photographers with their new Rana Series bags.  They are releasing four sizes, which should suit a variety of needs: the Rana 7, 10, 13, and 15.  Thanks to Cravar, I was able to obtain a Rana 10 to review.  Here are my thoughts on it.

Billingham 72 Camera Bag First Impressions

Billingham 72 Camera Bag First Impressions:

As some of you know, I am a huge fan of Billingham bags.  I’ve reviewed quite a lot of them, and I also own a few.  They are extremely well-made, offer some of the best protection that you can buy, and last forever.  But there’s been one size that I’ve always felt was missing from Billingham’s vast collection of bags.  They needed a bag that just fit the essentials like one mirrorless or rangefinder camera, one lens, and basic accessories.  They do have the Stowaway series but the bags in that series while good, don’t quite fit the same criteria.  Well, now we have the new Billingham 72, which fills this spot perfectly.  Let’s take a closer look at it.

A Look Back at The Fuji XF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6 Lens:

I wanted to talk a little bit about the Fuji XF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR Lens today.  I reviewed it a while back when it was first released, so this isn’t a review.  If you want more info, you can check out my actual review.  I also did a 1.4x Teleconverter review as well.

Fujifilm New Savings on Lenses and Cameras

Fujifilm New Savings on Lenses and Cameras:

It’s that time again where we get some pretty cool promotions from Fujifilm.  There are actually some decent savings, and it applies to lenses and bodies.  There’s savings on the X-T2, X-T20, and even the GFX system.  In fact, there are some really nice savings on GFX lenses, and of course, the body.  For example, you can save $1,000 purchasing a GFX and lens kit.  The link below will direct you to the Fujifilm savings page:

Maybe it’s finally time I finally pick up that XF 90mm I’m always raving about :).  I’ve always wanted the XF 100-400mm as well but that’s just a beast to carry around in NYC lol.  Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Cravar Rana Series Premium Leather Camera Bags:

There are a lot of great choices these days, if you want a leather bag for your camera gear.  We all know companies like ONA, and Oberwerth for example.  Now, there is another manufacturer entering the leather bag world: Cravar.  Cravar has been making all types of premium leather goods, and now with their new Rana Series, they are specifically targeting photographers.  From the looks of the features, quality of materials, and price, these bags are definitely aiming to impress.  Cravar has four sizes to choose from, and I will reviewing one shortly (I can’t wait!).  For now, here’s some info on them, and of course, some press photos.  You should also take a look at their Kickstarter campaign.
