Manfrotto has updated its Pro Light Bumblebee camera bag series with four new bags, including a pair of messenger bags and two backpacks. Let’s take a look at each of the new carrying solutions.

Manfrotto Pro Light Bumblebee M-10 and M-30 camera bags

The Manfrotto Pro Light Bumblebee M-10 camera bag is the smallest in the new quartet of bags. Its padded interior can hold a DSLR, 24-70mm f/2.8 lens, another pair of smaller lenses and a flash. It has a padded compartment for a 13-inch laptop as well. The top flap has a “noise-free” closure system. Around the exterior of the M-10 are numerous accessory pockets, elastic side straps for a small tripod, an AirSupport back and harness system, adjustable strap buckle and a wide top handle which doubles as a trolley strap.

The next size up, the Bumblebee M-30, shares many features with the M-10, including its comfort features and an included silver sun/rain cover, but it holds more gear. The M-30 can hold a DSLR with a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, up to three additional lenses, a flash and a 15-inch laptop. You can preorder both bags below:

Manfrotto Pro Light Bumblebee 130 and 230 camera backpacks

Like with the messenger bags, there are two new backpacks. The 130 holds a DSLR with 70-200mm f/2.8 lens and up to an additional eight lenses. It can also hold a 15-inch laptop. The bag has dual side pockets, tripod storage, multiple exterior pockets, top and side strap handles, shoulder straps and a waist belt. It also includes a rain cover.

The larger 230 can hold a DSLR with a 70-200mm f/2.8 plus up to an additional 10 lenses, offering plenty of storage for most photography kits. For photographers with 17-inch laptops, the 230 can hold that as well. Both the 130 and 230 offer front and top access to the main storage compartment.
