A New Rolling Bag……The Tenba Roadie Air Case 21

Fujifilm kindly sent X-Photogaphers a very nice thank you gift, a new Tenba Roadie Air Case 21!  This case is a beautuful rolling airport case that fits overhead on all planes, but regional jets.  When it doesn’t fit overhead it is made of a side wall construction of material that is virtually crush proof, yet light.  The bag closed up does not look like a camera bag, more like a nice suitcase.  It is made of very good materials and holds a lot of gear, including a laptop on top your camera bodies and lenses, (illustrated below).  I wrap my lenses and bodies in Tamrac Goblin bags for added protection while flying (ultrasonic vibrations).



As i said, it looks like a high quality, rolling suitcase.  As loaded above it weighs in at, 32 lbs.  Just about my limit to place in the overhaead compartment!!!!


Thanks Fujifilm, I look forward to using it on Landscape, and Nature workshops!  As packed it covers from 15mm to 820mm of lens coverage.  Somewhere in there is a TC-14 telconverter and the new 16mm f 2.8 lens also!!!!




the pilgrim!

    I encourage other X-Photographers to post how they plan to pack the Air Case! Would love to see your travel systems as well!

    What specific goblin bags do you use for your camera, 10-24, 18-135, and 100-400 lenses? Thanks.

      They make them in various sizes and I bought one of each, from smallest to largest, then I knew how many more of which size woukd fit all my lenses and bodies. The largest is perfect for the 100-400and the smallest is great for telrconverters and the F 2 Fujicrons, the rest will work in the three middle sizes.

    The 2.1 and 2.4 are perfect for the mid size lenses.

    I check here every day or so to see how you are doing. I guess seeing you returning to the bag of the month club is my answer!
