Digital Camera World Verdict

The Tenba DNA 16 DSLR Backpack provides plenty of storage space for a range of cameras and peripheral gadgets. Its clever multi-compartment design enables you to access what you want when you need it (while keeping your kit safe from bad weather due to its water-repelling fabric). It’s also comfortable to carry, thanks to padded straps and breathable support pads.

For the last 10 years I’ve been carrying my Canon DSLR around in a Lowepro bag when I go on a shoot. Inside it I can fit the camera body, a couple of lenses and a Speedlite flash (plus numerous batteries and memory cards).  I mostly use my Canon to shoot ‘talking heads’ interviews due to the excellent bokeh produced by my Canon EF 24-70 mm f/2.8 L lens.
