I was amazed by the paucity of information and reviews on the internet about this bag. If you google it, you will find only pages from places selling them. I found a single post at Fredmiranda’s forum, I contacted the poster (who had a Corium 5) and he was very kind on giving me some information about the bag. I posted on Dpreview forum asking for info and no one posted back.
I initially had this review as a Flickr Set (which got a lot of hits), now I decided to put this in blog format.
In this first part I will review the Corium 1 using my DSLR gear. Next post I will review the Corium 5. And my last post I show both bags with rangefinder Gear.
I will start my review with the official info from their website, then I will give my impression about the bags and what actually fit on each one. Official information from: http://www.delseycamerabags.com/
The CORIUM 1 is the smallest of our all-in-one shoulder bags. This De Luxe style shoulder bag is made from superior material. Pebble Leather and the interior comes with a high quality fabric lining with adjustable dividers to accommodate your Digital SLR camera and lens with a sleeve to store your accessories.The removable, zippered, inner bag, gives you the comfort and is protected with the unique magnetic overlap.
Dimensions:internal: 18 cm x 10 cm x 23.5 cm (7.1″ x 3.9″ x 9.3″)external: 22.5 cm x 13 cm x 25.5 cm (8.9″ x 5.1″ x 10.0″)capacity: 4.23 ltrweight: 1.085 kg (2 lbs 6 oz)
To start, both bags are of superior quality, very well crafted with excellent material, inside and outside. The detachable padded shoulder strap with Anti-Slip is very nice and feels confortable on the shoulder, even when the bag is fully loaded.
Okay, it looks nice and well built, but let’s see what I can fit inside this little bag…
What won’t fint on the bag: 70-200mm VR (attached or not to the camera!), the 24-70mm attached to the camera.
This is really a nice camera bag. What I like the most is that it won’t scream “camera bag, grab me” to everyone. Sure you still have to be careful where you leave it. If you like the review or have any questions, please leave a comment.
