AKB988: Stephen Frink reviews the Pro Camera Bag from AKONA

July 2008, Scuba Diving Magazine - It’s the traveling photographer’s dilemma: Digital housings and strobes are so large they almost have to be checked, but nothing better protects from pilferage or misconnected luggage than carrying it on the plane. The Akona Pro camera bag offers a solution. It measures 22x15x10 inches—carry-on size with most airlines—and with sturdy wheels and an ergonomic telescoping handle, it breezes down the concourse. An easily removable laptop sleeve attaches to the outside for quick access at security or on the plane.
Inside, the commodious and ingeniously compartmentalized space holds a Seacam D200 with the camera body inside the housing, a pair of Ikelite DS125 strobes and macro and dome ports, with room left for lenses, a topside speedlight, charger, cords, memory cards and miscellaneous bits and pieces. The front sports a zipper pocket suitable for a paperback, tickets, passport or even strobe arms if necessary. And there are shoulder straps tucked away inside for terrain too rough for wheels. For those times when checking is the only option, detach the computer compartment and trust that the gear will remain secure in its padded cocoon.
