  1. Love your huawei watch, but this bag really is nothing special….its not as good looking as those RIMOWA cases…and the price is not attractive too, i really love your channel, but i think what i want to say is as a photography channel, if you going to review some none-photography gear(the fact that u can put camera in it does not make it a photography gear), it needs to be reaaaaaaaaaaaaally special, sorry Tony just don't love this video.

  2. Hello,

    I have one question. I am undecided about which camera should i buy. I am considering Nikon D5300 or Canon 700D. I want to picture landscape and nature mostly but i can not decide. Can u help me, or give me a suggestion for some another model ? tnx

  3. if it doesn't have top access to the camera, I'll skip it and get a rolling messenger bag, and use something like this as a second bag for more gear. last thing I want is to lay it down and then access the camera.

  4. Hi Tony, you may want to rethink the locking cable item. Whenever I travel I use something called a Pac Safe that's basically a stainless steel net that you wrap around the pack and lock it to something in your hotel room (I've always used the toilet). It's a good way to protect your gear when you are not around such as dinner, breakfast, etc. Good luck with the P4 drone 🙂

  5. Thanks Tony for all of your and Chelsea's videos they are some of the best on YouTube. In July I was in Europe for 12 days and I was very excited to use my Airport Roller Derby. I Love my Roller Derby but I have a few complaints which I understand nothing in life is perfect. My handle when it was fully retracted sometimes it would go down while I was Rolling the bag, that was very annoying. Also when the bag is full it's kind of hard To bury your hand In there and try to pull the handle out, It's very tight. My Mac book Pro 15 inch laptop fit perfectly into my Roller Derby. Just everyone be warned that sometimes this bag will not fit into some overheads of some planes. I knew this before traveling to Europe and I brought with me my Ona Leather Brixton just in case I ran onto a plane that would not allow me to take my Roller Derby. Sure enough an airline employee stopped me before I was going onto a plane and she said this must be checked, my wife and I almost panicked but thank god for the Ona Leather Brixton, I was quickly able to put my 15 inch MacBook Pro, My Canon 5D Mark III, my Canon 70-200 F2.8, my small Wacum Tablet, my Canon 85mm F1.2 my Canon 24-70 F2.8 Mark II and my Canon 14mm F2.8 into the Brixton. None of the lenses had their hoods attached, I put those in the Roller Derby and they were fine. I also left my speedlite, Canon 600 EX–RT in the Roller Derby and it was just fine as well. I don't think I heard you mention anything about the wheels of the Roller Derby, Which I found to be absolutely fantastic, They rolled extremely smooth through the airports. The bag also rolled very well on the plane if you turn it sideways. A lot of people I noticed were looking at my bag from time to time because I'm thinking they were trying to guess what it was.

  6. So when are u going to do a proper review of the Fuji X-T2 AS  I write just watched a video on the X-T2 its faster AF than the D500yet people still don't believe this.so how's about an unbiased review this timethe last time u done a review without even having the camera and u were so NEGATIVE                                                              Tom G

  7. Good call on that combination lock, they can be picked in few seconds. Just cut it out and save weight. If you want good lock for that bag check out Abus or Abloy padlocks, stay away from Master Lock and American (now owned by Master)

  8. wow, a positive review! ahha just kidding 😀 I really like your bashing reviews, makes me confident that you are speaking honestly. Based on your videos, I got tamrons 70-200mm 2.8 VC and I love that lens. Thanks!

  9. Hi Tony – I can't find those charger connectors very easily, I keep getting the cables in my searches – any chance you could link to one please? The look super useful!
    Thanks 🙂

  10. Sometime ago I watched a video that you made comparing printing labs, you recommended (by showing side by side photos) WHCC and I want to thank you, today I received a large print from them and it exceeded my expectations, I’m super happy with the results. Thank you for all the help and advice you give the photographic community.

  11. TT makes 'pro' gear. It's not for the weekend warrior. The stitching and materials are a couple steps up from the looks-good-lasts-4-months stuff. Have had the urban disguise 60 for 3 years and it's still going strong in everyday use. You'll see a lot of sports guys on the sidelines wearing their harnesses and straps. If you can afford it, it's thoughtfully made and lasts a long time. If you need to go cheap, I'd get the Pelican 1510.

    The cable/lock is for storing things in low threat areas — storing the gear you can't take in closets/offices in stadiums, churches, etc for sports and wedding photographers, etc. Keeps honest people honest.

  12. It's expensive but it's hard to put a price on securing your gear from damage.. a $400 investment is a small price to pay when you've got 10 to 12 grand in gear to move around and protect, especially if you travel for a living.
