Lowepro launches ViewPoint bags designed to haul your action camera gear

Taking your action camera on location isn’t easy if you don’t have a suitable way to carry it. That bag has to stand up to the same environmental rigors as the camera itself. For the advanced action cam user, Lowepro introduced the ViewPoint Series, a line of bags that will make any GoPro or other action cam proud.

The ViewPoint bags are designed with the outdoors in mind. They have a number of features such as quick-grab handles and built-in straps for adjustability and convenience. Padding is ample, while adjustable dividers allow for customizing the bag to particular needs.

“We understand the unique carrying needs of action photographers; they require flexible solutions that look beyond the camera and allow them to pack action gear such as skateboards, trekking poles or other equipment,” says Tim Grimmer, vice president of brand and product at Lowepro, in a company statement. “When we designed our new line, we incorporated feedback from our most enthusiastic action video photographers. This feedback helped us shape the new ViewPoint Series to allow them to combine all of the gear they need to get the shots they want from street to park and beyond.”

The series includes four bags (BP 250 AW, CS 40, CS 60, and CS 80) that are flexible. The BP 250 AW (($130) back can hold up to three GoPro or similar cameras; a compact tripod; a 15-inch laptop, and a 10-inch tablet. It can also secure other gear and accessories such as a skateboard, helmet, or headphones. The case for the cameras is removable, so you use the bag for other non-filming needs.

If you don’t have a lot of gear, the entry-level CS 40 ($30) fits one camera and a handful of accessores. The CS 60 ($40) holds up to two cameras and accessories; a zippered mesh pocket and cable organization panel offers more function. The CS 80 ($50) has the same features as the CS 60, but it can hold up to three cameras. Because the bags are customizable, you could technically squeeze in additional cameras or accessories, depending on your workflow.

Best Camera Deals: Save on Canon, Panasonic, Nikon, and GoPro
fujifilm x t4 review set 2 dm 1

Whether you're looking for the best digital cameras or the best travel cameras, there are a ton of options out there, sometimes too many options, especially for those who aren't familiar with the photography world. Luckily, we've done a lot of legwork for you and collected a range of great camera deals across the spectrum, so even if you want something more sports-oriented, like a GoPro, there are a couple of deals for those too. So, let's jump right into it.
Today's Best Camera Deals
One of our favorite deals is the Canon EOS Rebel T7 going for $400, as it's one of the better DSLR cameras on the market, and it has a reasonably budget-friendly price on it, making it a great starter camera. Of course, if you've been in the game for a while and are looking for a powerful upgrade, the Sony Alpha 7R IV is one of the best full-frame cameras on the market, and while it still costs a hefty $3,200, that's still $300 off the usual $3,500 price tag. That said, if you're looking for something more portable and action-oriented, you can't go wrong with the GoPro HERO11 Black Mini, although if you're a professional content creator, the GoPro HERO9 Black 5K is probably the one to go for instead.

Do I Need a DSLR or a Mirrorless Camera?
Like most things, this really depends on what you're trying to do. Mirrorless cameras have fewer internal moving parts, which generally means they can capture images quicker, so if you're taking pictures of action-packed stuff like sports or animals in the wilderness, a mirrorless camera is a great option. On the other hand, DSLR cameras are great for low-light conditions and are great for anything from portraits to landscapes. DSLRs are also cheaper and have much better battery life, as well as having a decade or two worth of lenses to choose from.
