  • 1Description

Compact and secure, the black Camsafe V8 Anti-Theft Camera Shoulder Bag from Pac Safe has integrated security features for protection when traveling and features a boomerang handle that connects to dual zippers for quickly opening the main compartment from the top. It holds your DSLR with an attached lens and an additional lens between padded interior dividers, which can be removed to create a spacious eight liter compartment. For storing an iPad or a similar size tablet, there is a dedicated zippered compartment at the back.

For your accessories, an exterior front zippered compartment with an interior organizer holds items such as your memory cards, smartphone, a pen and keys and dual exterior side stretch pockets fit a water bottle or an umbrella. For comfort carrying the pack, there is a padded adjustable Carrysafe Slashguard strap that detaches from one side and features a comfortable shoulder pad, or you can quickly grab the pack using a padded top grip handle. For protection from inclement weather, there is a built-in rain cover that can be hidden away when not in use.

Integrated Anti-Theft Security

Carrysafe Slashguard Strap features a flexible, lightweight, stainless steel wire that is integrated inside for invisibility and effective at preventing theft from cutting the strap
Dual Release Security Buckles are smart buckles with a dual release button for opening or closing your bag; they provide the ability to attach your bag to a secure fixture such as the leg of a table or around a palm at a beach, or confuse a potential thief who will be less likely to waste time trying to unfasten it
A lightweight eXomesh Slashguard is built into and concealed in the most commonly vulnerable areas of your bag such as the front, bottom, and sides for protection from a quick slash-and-run theft
RFIDsafe blocking pocket and material prevent identity theft of your personal information by blocking out virtually all transmissions between 10 MHz - 3 GHz, which covers the radio frequency used in e-passports, credit cards, and key cards
Secure zipper pullers attach to discreet security hooks or can be placed under and through a hypalon tab to prevent others from reaching into your bag

    Pacsafe Venture V8 Reviews

    Camsafe V8 Anti-Theft Camera Shoulder Bag (Black) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Day Bag,Plus I just returned from a week in India where I shot villages outside the cities. This was the first time I used my new Camsafe V8. I equipped the bag with a Peak Design bracket to hold a camera handy on the Camsafe should strap on my chest. The set up was absolutely perfect. The bag accommodated a Sony A7RII, three lenses, a cleaning kit, filters, extra batteries, grey card, speedlight, iPad, two bottles of water, a day-long supply of snacks. My gear was absolutely safe and secure while being quickly accessible. The bag was packed inside my rollaboard while traveling. A perfect solution.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Design, functionality and quality - Camsafe V8 I have several camera and utility bags, too many because size and compartments refuse to suit all needs. I recently added Camsafe V8 to my bags. Built-in anti-theft devices are an advantage but not my main criteria, details are available in the manufacturers description. The main compartment, with adjustable padded dividers, is wide enough to fit my mirrorless camera with attached lens and tree other lenses, as well as other items that I carry on a day out or as flight hand-luggage. The front bureau is used for my pen, notebook, keys, wallet and telephone, also with pockets for SD cards. A separate compartment for my iPad Air is in the back, though unfortunately not within the zippered main compartment. Each end has an expandable pouch for drink bottle or in my case a desktop-tripod. The clip-lockable zips at front and top, where there is a double zipped cover, are my preference; I do not like bags with a large covering flat that is often cumbersome to open and insecure for content underneath. A rain cover is stowed in the bottom, and useful since I have have contents of another bag wetted by rain through closed zips. And lastly the colour, I chose olive bag with khaki straps, since where I come from black seems to be the in-colour that I refuse to wear or use by choice. The Camsafe V8 is a quality product that I am pleased to use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my purpose This is a very well made, attractive, light-weight bag for protecting my equipment.? I specifically bought it for a Lumix GH4 camera with the Leica Panasonic 100-400mm lens.? I wanted a compact bag where I could stow the camera with the long lens attached and this bag fit the bill perfectly.? It's easy to remove and repack the camera.? It holds all the accessories like spare batteries, filters, extra cards, the battery charger, and power cord, as well as the tripod foot for the lens.? It can also fit personal items like a wallet.? Note the camera/lens combination does not fit when the tripod foot is attached.? It also does not have room for any other lenses, but that is not an issue for me.? I couldn't ask for a nicer bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Day Bag for Light Carry I purchased this bag for use with a Sony A7Rii system. I have a backpack which carries all of the equipment I need on a regular basis, but at 25 pounds, it is more than I would like to carry when walking a considerable distance, climbing, or just getting out of the car for a photo op. The PacSafe Camsafe V8 is just the right size to carry two large zooms or 3-4 prime lenses, without the camera, including a 16-35/4, 24-70/2.8 or 70-200/4. For this purpose, the camera would normally be carried on its own strap. The top-entry V8 is easy to access without setting it down, and comfortable to carry with the strap diagonally from one shoulder. The quality of construction is outstanding.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from just what I needed This bag is just what I needed. I can carry my Fuji XT1 with the 18-135 lens and the Fuji XT10 with 10-24 lens easily. The bag is well padded and the safety features are appreciated.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great pack for carrying a small kit I have been only pleased with this pack
    Date published: 2015-11-01
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bag for travel and mirrorless camera I was looking for a small to medium sized camera bag for my Sony a6300, and something that could double as a day bag for a trip to Europe. I am glad to say this met both requirements. It is also under the personal item dimensions for most airlines, so it does not need to be checked, and does not count as a carry on. The anti-theft features also helped me feel more secure when in crowds as I knew it couldn't be easily stolen, opened, or tampered with. I chose green since it is a hard color for someone to say they mistook as their own if it was "accidentally" picked up, and I like green. The green and gold of the bag are not as bright as they appear in the photo, so it is much more discreet than the picture would make it seem. The gold color of the strap is more like a Dijon mustard. Pros: *Top opening zipper for quick and discreet access to camera *Under personal item size for airlines *Double steel cables in strap to prevent slash and run *Strap can be disconnected to run through other luggage handles, and through/around stationary objects to prevent theft while not on person *Can be carried on your back (messenger bag style), on hip, or in front of body *Does not look like a camera bag *2 water bottle holders (or 1 water bottle, and a travel pillow holder) *Just the right amount of organization pockets *Rain cover Cons: *Camera compartment dividers could be better thought out. Includes short divider, and long divider with attached short divider (for L shape option). I made my own dividers to suit the bag to my needs, and left the included dividers at home. (If you use a full size DLSR, and/or longer lenses, the provided dividers might work for you.) *Top access double zipper can sometimes hang up if not pulled more-or-less evenly. *Top access flap is only attached to one side, and hangs out about 14 inches to the side of the bag when open. This reduces the discreet nature of the bag. (Luckily the velcro tab on the end of the flap allows you to temporarily attach the access flap to the bag while it is unzipped, thus reducing the attention getting flappyness of the access panel.) *The shoulder pad on the strap can sometimes turn while wearing it causing it to be less comfortable. Also, the pad can sometimes slip to an unreachable spot making it necessary to take the bag off, and readjust. *The flap of cloth on the back that covers the tablet/sketchpad compartment has trouble hiding the pocket opening if the pocket is overstuffed. Wishlist: *I wish the bottom of the bag had a waterproof material so the bag could be set on wet/damp ground without worry. *I wish it had better camera divider options that would suit more than one camera setup, or carry style. (Even if I had to buy extra dividers separately.) *I wish the top opening would be designed so the access flap did not stick out and call attention to itself. And, that camera access was quicker. *Remove one of the water bottle holders, and have a side opening zipper, so the bottom lens of a stacked lens layout can be accessed. Items I carried in the bag on the trip: *Sony a6300 mirrorless camera with L plate *Peak Design Leash *Sony 35mm prime lens and hood *Sony 50mm prime lens and hood *Samyang 12mm prime lens and hood *Rode VideoMicro microphone and dead cat *Ultrapod 2 tripod *Desmond arca swiss clamp (to adapt Ultrapod) *Extra battery for camera *3 SD cards *lens pen *lens cloth *3 filters (circular polarizer, variable ND, 9 stop ND) *Camera remote *Eye Mask *Inflatable travel pillow *Collapsible water bottle and carabiner *USB cable *Power bank *2 Step up rings and larger lens caps (to adapt filters) *Straight flash bracket and cold shoe *Smartphone tripod mount and hand grip *Small pencil case and pencils *Small sketch book/journal *2 disposable waterproof camera sleeves *Business cards *Snacks for the plane Overall, I am very pleased with this bag. The few cons it has are in no way a deal breaker, and even knowing the issues I have with the bag, I would purchase it again. The four star rating means it is not a perfect bag. Since there is probably not a perfect bag out there, a four star rating is as good as it gets for me.
