Olympus teams up with Manfrotto to make a stylish OM-D Explorer camera bag

Olympus Explorer

The smart new Olympus Explorer messenger bag is the result of a collaboration between Olympus and Italian maker Manfrotto, and is based on that company’s stylish Windsor messenger bag.

It’s been chosen by Olympus as the perfect fit for an OM-D camera system, holding an OM-D (or PEN) body and up to three lenses via a detachable protective camera and lens pouch with adjustable internal dividers featuring the Manfrotto Protection System (which we take to be some kind of fancy padding).
