Olympus today announced highly functional camera backpack to store the entire OM-D E-M1 Mark II system-CBG-12. The Camera Backpack CBG-12 is designed entirely by Olympus as the ultimate in functionality and quality that is optimized particularly for OM-D users. It has excellent storage capacity for the entire Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II system with room to spare, and is compact enough to be carried on aircraft.
The backpack is designed to minimize the load on your body when carrying equipment for long periods of time. The shoulder straps and waist belt are equipped with the same type of stabilizers as mountain climbing rucksacks so users can adjust the pack to fit their body. Appropriately tightening the chest strap helps keep the shoulder straps from shaking, stabilizes the body, and are made for carrying heavy equipment for long periods of time. The length and shape for the rear panel of the backpack has been painstakingly designed to appropriately distribute the weight across shoulders and waist.
A total of 18 pieces partition boards are available in 6 different types, providing a variety of storage options. Cushioned and 12 mm thick, these partition boards can be moved around or taken out to perfectly match the amount of equipment you are carrying. In addition to the main compartment opening, there are two side openings on the left side of the backpack for quick access to equipment. The side openings feature a wide opening design that provides smooth access to the OM-D E-M1 Mark II with attached HLD-9 Power Battery Holder.
The same stainless lens mount as used on the OM-D E-M1 Mark II is located on the back of the backpack as an emblem. This emblem is a message from the manufacturer that the Camera Backpack CBG-12 is designed with the exact same concepts as the OM-D series, namely its high level of reliability and mobility.
The separately available Soft Camera Case CS-42SF, CS-44SF, and sub cases included with the CBG-10 can be attached to the strap on the waist belt for enhanced storage performance. The CSCH-123 and CSCH-124 can also be attached to the shoulder straps for even further expanded storage options.
For photo enthusiasts who like to carry around a variety of interchangeable lenses and accessories to accommodate a wide range of scenes, a system bag that safely and securely carries equipment is an extremely important item. Olympus Camera Backpack CBG-12 is expected to be available by end of December .Pricing to be announced later.
