But we're not the argumentative types, and we understand that for many of you, documenting the transformative places you visit isn't only highly desirable; it may also be your meal ticket.

With the same level of design intention, construction quality, and mayhem readiness as our packs, shelters, and accessories, the Camera Pod is our answer to your quest for an ultralight, durable, and weatherproof camera-carrying solution. Built with a selection of Dyneema® Composite Fabrics we know will offer the best performance and protection for the incredibly low overall weight, you can keep the focus on the shot you're after and know your photography equipment is just as secure as all your other gear.

High quality materials - large size is too small for pro cameras

There is no doubt that the camera pod's construction is high quality, durable, and will keep your camera gear well protected. That being said, the large size pod is simply too small for serious camera equipment. This means larger gear, such as full-frame mirrorless and DSLR cameras will not fit. None of my Sony A7R's or my Nikon/Canon DSLR's will fit into this case...and my Fuji GFX100 will definitely not fit. You could only fit a smaller mirrorless camera like an old version of a Sony A7 (tight squeeze). The case seems best designed for use of APS-C or Micro 4/3 cameras, which are great for amateurs but not suitable for professional use. And, if you are a film shooter, there is no way you will fit just about any serious landscape-oriented film camera, such as a Mamiya 7. If you are an amateur photographer and just want to carry a small APS-C or Micro 4/3 camera...this case is an excellent and suitable option. But for high-level pro photographers, you'll need to look elsewhere. Perhaps Hyperlite will make an XL size that is appropriate to fit full frame and medium format cameras, such as smaller pro cameras like the Sony A7RIV up to Nikon/Canon DSLR and the Fuji GFX100.

Excellent minimalist camera pod, almost perfect.

excellent pack for my a6600. It is super light, and sufficient padding and has great seam sealed zippers. No extra pockets or zippers for weight, just a minimalist pack that does the job. Fits my lenses sony 10-18, sigma 16 f1.4, but my tamaron 17-70 f2.4 does not fit. Also I was a little bummed that this is too narrow for my a6600 to have my small rig cage attached. It is was a bit wider it would be a home run.

so my full review see here: https://youtu.be/7dtyjTtTpMM

Perfect camera accessory

I love nature photography and backpacking. My problem has always been a way to have the camera easily accessible without feeling like it is in the way or taking up too much space. I just used this pod connected between the two shoulder straps so it sits right on my chest. Don’t even notice it’s there…until I need it. Like everything HMG makes, the construction is top notch and the fact that I don’t have to worry about my camera getting wet is a big plus. Keep coming up with the amazing products!! Love everything I have bought.

Camera bag

Fits my z6 perfect. Even with the lens adapter and a 70-300mm lens. Made a sling strap so I can throw it over the shoulder and it stays put when moving on the trail or climbing.
