New Pro Light Cinematic Bags Announced by Manfrotto

Simon Skinner - 2 years ago

Manfrotto has announced brand-new models to their Pro Light Collection including the Cinematic Expand and Cinematic Balance

The brand-new Pro Light Cinematic backpacks highlight Manfrotto’s shock-absorbing Camera Protection System divider to ensure rock-solid protection of your kit. The load lifters, sternum straps, shoulder straps and waist belts are all adjustable for a versatile and customised fit.

Produced from water-resistant Rip-Stop nylon and polyester, hollowed ITW Nexus buckles and Duraflex hardware, both of the new backpacks are ultra-lightweight, but strong enough to keep large amounts of gear safe. They feature an independent checkpoint-friendly laptop pocket for up to a 17” device, and external zip or stretch pockets for accessories and a water bottle.

The Manfrotto Pro Light Cinematic Expand video backpack is the first on the market built to take a comprehensive complete videography kit and still comply with carry-on luggage regulations. It will take a modular camcorder [i.e. Canon C100/300 or Sony PXW FS5/7] with up to 70-200/2.8 mm lens attached and up to 10 lenses, video accessories or camera bodies. Thanks to its expandable front panel, this backpack can be made bigger to take a camcorder with its handle assembled.

The Manfrotto Pro Light Cinematic Balance video backpack can also be taken on board as hand luggage and can hold a VDSLR or mirrorless with several lenses and DJI Ronin M/MX [fully set up]. Thanks to its internal compartments, this backpack presents itself as a great solution for storing a full Video kit. The side pocket will take the DJI RONIN M/MX remote control and main unit, and a pocket inside will take the disassembled bar.

Pricing and availability

The new Pro Light Cinematic bags are available now and come in at £169.95 [RRP].
