    Domke FA-230 reviews

    FA-230 3-Compartment Insert (Gray/Green) is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 33.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from 'A lack of protection and versatility' The FA-230 Insert was bought to supplement my trusty Domke F-802 Reporter's Satchel when I occasionally need to haul photo gear along. Unfortunately the insert is only usuable with slim lenses and strobe units and cannot be cutomized which means I can't get an camera body in. I have to make-do by wrapping a small DSLR body in a wrap and squeezing it into one of the outer pockets-not ideal on a crowded underground train. To make things worse the bottom of the insert is not padded, although is enclosed. To be fair to Domke this combination is purely improvised and they do make dedicated photo satchels which may suit better if you have to carry files, paperwork and photo equipment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from New life for my F-803 As a professional photographer for 20 years I own several (and only) Domke bags. My F-803 must be 15 years old, was a laptop bag, camera bag, document satchel...... Now I got into the micro 4/3 system, and have a Olympus OM-D E-M5 and a few lenses. Bought the FA-230 insert for my gear and was happy to see that the new insert has movable dividers. It fits my gear perfectly, the body with a prime attached in one compartment, extra lenses and flash in the other 2. With an iPad in the back of the F-803 and charger and extras in the front pockets, I have a complete reporter-equipment in a small bag, well protected and organized through the new FA-230 insert. Perfect!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Well built, but poorly designed. It's simple....why would Domke not make the two inner dividers, a) Adjustable, b) allow the top few inches of them to flap down - (like every other divider made!). You should be able to drop your dslr cam + lens straight in to the middle hole - and have the two center dividers flap outward, allowing the body of the camera to rest on them. Instead, it just crushes the dividers, since they are sewn up to the top of the insert. Very poor design.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost right I bought this to carry my gear in a smaller compartment of an old backpack (specifically, the middle compartment of the North Face Yavapai bag). It's a very tight fit, but I can cram my external flash, 40D with mounted 17-50 2.8, and my 70-200 f4 in there. Unfortunately the compartments are just a little too narrow to accommodate the 70-200's hood, and the fact that the dividers are sewn in rather than velcroed is a huge con. In contrast, my gear fits comfortably into the Tenba Photo Insert, which has padded, movable dividers, but the insert is too wide for my backpack.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mixed Feelings I've used this insert for about a week now and still have mixed feelings about it. On the plus side it offers better protection than what I had before in the bag (which was nothing). The workmanship and quality are good, and the insert appears sturdy. On the down side, though, it's a somewhat awkward fit in my F-803 bag - it doesn't fit completely from side to side inside the bag, leaving roughly an inch or so of wasted space between the outside wall of the insert and the inside wall of the bag (each side). Getting a Canon 7D into my F-803 is now a very tight fit as the insert is small. The styrofoam walls of the insert (which now cause the front of the bag to bulge out making it kind of fat) and small size have turned my formerly spacious camera bag into a crammed experience. I have configured a two-section setup with the dividers and there is just barely enough room for my 7D in one section with a 70-300 telephoto upright in the second section. The insert would probably be fine, though, for smaller-size DSLRs. Time will tell if this insert will work out for me or not. Also of note, the internal design is now different from what the product image depicts. The inside of the insert is now entirely padded and there are two removable divider panels with Velcro strips that attach to the walls of the insert so you can customize the interior: no more fixed or sewn-in-place dividers as all the product pictures on the Web depict. This is a huge improvement over the original version of this insert.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the price Contrary to other reviewers, I found this is poorly made and not practical to use. The velcro on the two dividers are weak and not holding tight. The width of the insert does not fit the inside of F-803 from wall to wall leaving small space that is not useful.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unlike Domke bag, insert made in China I purchased a Domke Reporter's Bag specifically because I wanted a durable, good-looking bag that was made in the USA, which the bag is. I read the reviews and realized that this insert would be somewhat smaller than the bag interior, and I was okay with that. Unfortunately, this very thin insert is made in China, and feels like typical China quality - which is to say low quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional quality I carry a 70-200 2.8, a wide angle f4 zoom, a 2.8 normal zoom, a teleconverter and a D300 W/battery pac in the maim section of FX2 my bag. Replacing the standard square four bay incert with the three bay rectangular insert allows all of that to fit and and be accessable. The Domke FX 2 bag is great. I can carry the three fast zooms and teleconver that give me coverage from the (full frame equivalant) 18 to 600 mm, a small spare body, SB 800 flash, monopod, spare batteris, memory, filters etc. If a had a bigger bag I would just carry more which is cumbersome, especially when you need to move fast. The bag is canvass but Which I find more functional and comfortable (with the postmans strap cushion) than the modern ballistic nylon bags. I carried my last one for ten years. Along with the advantages enumerated above, it developed a nice patena over the years. It looks salty, which is not a bad thing.
