Arco Video Dr. 30 Reviews

Close to perfect

By Diane
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-08-26

This bag has so many positive features I'd still recommended it. Frustrating though as a few small tweaks would take It to 5 stars. All easy fixes by the manufacturer. The out side double pockets have Velcro flaps - zippers and flaps would make me more confident small items would stay put and dust would stay out. The biggest issue though are the zipper pulls. Comfortable and easy to see but worthless. Broke on about the third pull. Very poorly constructed. The zipper needs a pull to work comfortably. I'll have to find a replacement.

Good bag for getting your gear around

Works very well for what I needed nice large size. Only complaint is that it does not come with wheels like in the picture that must be a add-on or something to be able to pull it around.

Great Quality Video Dr. Bag!

I just received my 2 new Arco Video Dr. Bags 30 today and initially could not figure out how to keep the bag open when loading or unloading gear. I finally flipped both zipper ends over into the bag and, Voila, the bag stays open as advertised, without the use of velcro. I, also, noticed a slight curvature in the zipper track on both bags where the zippers were parked in the closed position when the product was packed at the manufacturer. I think this might straighten out over time with the zippers parked at other locations along the zipper track when closed. However, the zippers work just fine right now, even though I can feel the bump in the track when gliding over that section. This bag appears to be made of top quality materials and construction throughout. These bags are a solid buy to move my photo, video and lighting gear. They are very well padded inside and seem highly durable with a modern look, exceeding my expectations. Glad I bought 2 in the DealZone. My review photos would not load.

Great for BMPCC 6K Pro rigged out with top handle

By Frank
Rated 5 out of 5

This shoulder bag has sleek exterior and functional interior. It's just wide enough to fit a camera like BMPCC 6K Pro (without the side handle) while being comfortable to hand carry or shoulder carry. It also has enough room under the doctor style zipper fit the top handle attached to the rig (and possibly a microphone). The dividers come in handy to divide the interior space into three compartments: one for media, one for battery, middle one for the rig (without rear-mounted battery). The two big pockets on the side can fit monitor sunhood, clapping board, color chart, audio cables, etc. No room for laptop but that's not unexpected for this kind of bag.

Absolutely love this bag

I absolutely love this bag. I was going to get the Arco 20 for my Panasonic CX350, however I went with the Arco 30. I'm so happy I did. It allows a little extra room for accessories. Well built. I bought 2!

should have waited

I bought this bag to fit my DVX200. The camera and some extras did fit fine. However, pulling out the camera and putting it back in, is something of an exercise in patience. If you're running and gunning well- you'll probably curse this bag. The final straw for me was when I was traveling with it and the bag was being enough trouble to put in the overhead that I actually pulled my camera to carry in hand and packed my stuff in the Arco bag to check which is when the bags shoulder strap clip broke skidding across the floor. Jeez. Perhaps it had a few more pounds in it than it was rated but the bag just became a huge disappointment at that moment. Lately I've been eyeing a backpack that touts DVX200 portability. In hindsight an extra 100$ would have been worth it. Since Im in the mood I'll add that although I appreciate my DVX it sure would have been nice had Panasonic offered a bag that would be appropriate rather than a guessing game.

A sturdy, quality bag

By Dillon

Excellent bag. Only drawbacks are only 3 large external pockets (not further subdivided in anyway) and that the bag is hardcase and functions by prying it open like a clam if you need to fit something rather wide in it.

Decent Bag, but Zipper is not...

By Thomas

I legitimately got the bag, pulled it out of the packaging, put my FS5ii in it and went to close the zipper when - SNAP! The zipper broke. The handle piece so to speak broke right off. I have made a makeshift zipper handle out of string for now, but super disappointing since it was THE VERY FIRST TIME I closed the bag.

Confused, Specs state interior is 21" long AND will hold a 21" camera. But reviewers state that the interior INSIDE the padding is 17". What are the dimensions INSIDE the padding? I want to fit a camera+lens+hood, at about 19", 20" would be ideal.

question

Reading the specs on the 30, it appears that this bag will take a laptop with a dslr and some accessories, maybe sliding the laptop in next to the long divider, would that actually be reasonable? I'm looking at this bag as airplane carry-on. Thanks!
Asked by: David L.
I have a 13inch MacBook Air and it will just fit into the pocket next to the long divider. I like this bag as it has several useful pockets for plenty of camera gear and I think it would be a great air-plane carry-on.Hope this helps. Barbara

would a Sony FS7 camera with lens and matte box attached fit?

Might be a little snug in my judgement. I use it for the Sony PXW-Z100 to give you some kind of reference. Hope this helps!

question

I'm looking for a shoulder bag to fit roughly 10 prime lenses for still, on location shoots. I currently have 2 Thinktank Speed Racer V2.0 that carry all the lenses, and mini video monitors, cables, etc. to show clients previews. Would this bag work? I don't mind not having each lens in a partition.
Asked by: Anonymous
Bag is pretty nice. Little heavy but sturdy. Big disappointment was the shoulder strap breaking on day 1. The clip stretched / straightened out when bag snagged on seat in my car. I did not pull it very hard either, I promise. Otherwise it is a brilliant bag. The water-proof zipper is very tight and I am cynical that won't last either but I'm confident the zipper under the small under-zipper rubber flap is sturdy and will remain serviceable.The inside dimensions on the DR 30, INSIDE the cushioning is about 17 x6 . The DR40 bag (I also have) will get you 22 x7 . Hope this helps.
