I bought this insert to put in a cheap canvas messenger bag. Works like a charm.

The photo of this insert here is a little misleading. The one I received is neutral gray - not white. Also, there are 4 dividers in total. The center two dividers have "ears" to hold an SLR in a vertical position with a lens attached. It fits my Rebel Xti with 75-300 lens attached perfectly. There's also room for a Canon 17-85 IS lens, a 100mm macro, a portable hard drive and miscellaneous cords and gadgets.

The internal dimensions are about 13" long x 4" wide x 9" tall. The dividers allow you to create various compartment sizes.

On various photo websites you'll find whole discussion groups where folks have used this insert to convert popular messenger bags to photo bags. It's a great way to create a discreet, non-camera bag looking bag. You can also just lift the divider out, camera and all, when you want to use the messenger bag for another purpose.

If you have the idea to convert a messenger bag to a camera bag this just might be the ticket for you.

I keep looking for the perfect camera bag that does not shout out "expensive photo gear in here". This insert can turn any run of the mill messenger-style bag into a fully padded camera bag, and you can still always pull out the insert to use the bag for hauling your everyday stuff. I do wish that the insert was either shorter or had flip-up sides. It's a little deep when I'm not carrying long lenses.

Awesome little thing

By Rene

Comments about Tenba Pro Digital 2 Photo Insert:

I bought this to fit into a messenger bag I had instead of buying a camera bag. It fits my dsrl with pancake lens, a larger lens, and my film camera. Definitely more than worth the price

    Comments about Tenba Pro Digital 2 Photo Insert:

    I needed something to help me put my camera and equipment into my roll aboard suitcase for when I travel. it's a convenient way for me to pack my equipment without talking the whole equipment bag with me. This will not work as a standalone bag, but works well in adapting other bags.

      This was the perfect addition and size to convert my messenger bag into a great low-profile camera bag for everyday use. Insert and dividers are well-made, sturdy, and seem very durable. I'm able to hold my full-frame dslr, 70-200, and 2 other lenses no problem. Can't beat the price either.

        My Dakine laptop messenger is my go to bag; however, I needed something to protect my camera as well. If you have a messenger bag and want protection for your camera, this is the answer.

          Comments about Tenba Pro Digital 2 Photo Insert:

          I have a canvas bag that I wanted to use for my camera gear. The only problem was that there is no padding in the soft-sided bag. I didn't need a big, expensive gadget bag so I used this insert to give the sides of the bag shape and to protect and keep my gear from bumping around in the bag. The dividers are adjustable and the liner has wide strips of velcro so you could also add another divider or a strap or whatever you wanted to customize your bag.

                    The really is no bag quite as sturdy and flexable as a bicycle messenger bag. Designed to carry and protect a host of items from the elements and the dangers of urban traffic, it seemed to me a messenger bag would make the perfect camera bag, and with this insert it does. The insert holds my dslr with a lens, 4 additional lenses or flashes or whatever you need protected, while there is still enough space in the bag for anything else you might need to carry. For about $ bucks you can breathe new life into your old bag.

                          Very fast ship from B&H and helpful reviews so that I made a good purchase decision.

                          I have been using a classic canves and leather Orvis bag that is similar to a messenger bag. The insert now has given my Olympus E-M1 camera and a selection of lenses the protection that I have been looking for over the last year. I love my old Orvis bag and now it is complete as a great camera bag. Having this combination, allows me to travel in foreign countries without the appearence of tourist.
                          The insert is a tight fit in my particular bag. Tenba is true to the measurements as posted. Trust them.

                            I have three backpacks for different uses for my camera and I wanted to put an insert in each, and had bought this insert and I liked a lot, I wanted to buy another and also wanted to test the DSLR Camera Paddy Insert (Olive) by BBP. I do not like at all, that is soft, the camera goes to the bottom, separators and velcro is very weak, however this Pro Digital 2 Photo Insert by Tenba is of excellent quality, the best, like the inserts that bring backpacks think tank. If you are looking for a good quality insert price, this is it.

                            I wanted something I could switch from bag to backpack that wasn't too pricey but still sturdy. This insert is perfect for a messenger bag or large tote. I can fit my 5d markIII two lenses and because of how deep the Insert is I can fit misc items below or on top. Perfect for me!
