The Camera I-O (Insert-Outsert) is designed to help you carry your DSLR body, several lenses, an external flash, and accessories. Originally conceived as a padded insert to be added to our Brain Bag backpack (the Camera I-O also fits in the Super Ego, Ego, Empire Builder, ID and Aeronaut)
we’ve added features so that it can also be used as a great, stand-alone, shoot-from-the-hip photo bag.
Included with the Camera I-O are four padded dividers designed to allow you to optimize and organize the space inside of the bag based on what gear you will carry. Also included with the Camera I-O is a padded, removable lid system. When traveling from location to location with the Camera I-O inside our Brain Bag or other bag, the lid system is a great way to add an extra level of protection for your gear; when using the I-O on its own, the lids will help keep dust, dirt and light precipitation out as well.
Carry a travel tripod or lighting gear? You may want to add a Tripod-Lighting Kit Quiver, which is available in two sizes: 360mm ($40) and 520mm ($45). The Quivers can be clipped to the sides or bottom of the Camera I-O, carried on their own with an optional shoulder strap, or packed inside of a larger bag. We call them “Quivers” because Tom’s brother Dan, who helped develop the Camera I-O, works out of the bags as he’s shooting, pulling out his lighting gear or tripod like it’s the Hunger Games.
