I have been looking for a new bag for my NX70s and came across the new Manfrotto Unica V shoulder bags. I had a choice of orange-red and white, I plumbed for one of each.

Manfrotto “The Unica V messenger is the perfect everyday companion for carrying your camera gear, laptop and personal gear. Gain quick access to your DSLR with lens attached, 17” Macbook (15.4” laptop) and personal effects in the upper compartment by using the top opening, LIMITED EDITION RED”

These bags are perfect for the Sony NX70 as they fit like a glove and still have plenty of space for battery charger, batteries, SDHC cards and a decent space underneath for a microphone and XLR cable.

Up till now we have had to put up with boring black or petrol green in the bag department and the great feature of these colourful bags is you won’t leave them behind on a job or lose them in a dark corner of a room.

This bag allows my NX70s to be self contained with everything in the one place…well recommended.

PS. Jessops have them on promotion at £50 this month.


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.

  1. Do you think it would fit my Sony NX5U plus more or less the same accessories?

  2. No problems…bags of room but be careful I don’t think I would keep any lenses in the bottom section of the bag.

  3. I agree get yourself cloourfull cases and bags as they are alot harder to loose. I have a range of black cases that I bought years ago and yellow cases that I buy now. Every case from now on will be brightly coloured as it much easier to see in the dark as you are packing at the end of a long day shooting. .
