    Brain Bag Camera Storage?

    I'm looking for a small camera insert for my Brain Bag. I know TB used to carry the I/O, but that seems to be in a bygone era.

    I'm curious if anyone can confirm if a Tenba BYOB 9 would fit inside one of the main compartments of the Brain Bag? According to Tenba's website, the BYOB 9 has an external depth of 4 inches.

    Has anyone here tried to combine those?

    definityx, welcome to the Forums!

    I haven't tried the combination you're asking about, but I did just spot a Camera I/O on eBay this morning. Here it is: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tom-Bihn-Ca...g/113638709796

    Good luck!

    Can't confirm the Tenba, but I use this in my BB: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...beze_Case.html. Ape Case makes lots of different sized inserts and they work great. Hope this helps!

    Back when I was deciding on my Brain Bag, I asked a similar question of customer service. Kat responded: 'The approximate dimensions of both main compartments are 17.5" x 14" x 4", which should fit most camera inserts'

    The Brain Bag does easily fit my DSLR in an Ape Case Cubeze ACQB33, which is a touch smaller than the model JamesM61 suggested.

    How do you guys like the Ape Case cases? The bright yellow is a bit of a turn-off to me... Whats the quality like on the interior of the bags?

    I have an ape case that fits almost perfectly in my PCSB. The material on the inside is the same as the outside. The quality is decent all around.

    I use mine when I want to carry my camera around town with extra lenses. It keeps each item from getting jostled in the bag and gives a layer of protection. The yellow, while not attractive, makes it easy to see things.

    I got Tenba backpack insert, which is bigger than the BYOB 9. The quality is amazing! It takes up most of my luminary and that's fine. I'm a filmmaker and when I use it, I'm really just looking for secure travel to and from a shoot.

    I bought a ThinkTank Mirrorless mover 20 for my Olympus OM-D, one zoom and one prime lens, plus supplies. It just fits into my Synapse 19, and can be used as a shoulder bag. I since bought a smaller camera for travel, so do not use it as much, but it seems to do the job. I am sure something like that would certainly fit in a Brainbag, which I also have but donated to my son. The Mirrorless Mover does load from the top, if unzipped, so can function like an insert. It also fits in a LCB, now extinct, but would work in a Makers Bag.

    Thank you EVERYONE for the replies...

    I did finally decide to pull the trigger on the Tenba 7.

    I like the Ape Cases, but I prefer the idea of a padded lid, just in case I decide to pull the case out and take it with me on an unexpected shoot.

    The real use case for this is just to carry my everyday camera essentials. I can't walk around with the camera in my hand (much as I'd like to) so I have to settle for just throwing it in my bag. The Tenba 7 seemed like it would be the perfect fit for my camera, a spare battery, and MAYBE a spare lens.

    For real photo shoots, I have my dedication camera bad I would take.
