This Parisian Nights-colored Large DSLR Core Unit Version 2 from Shimoda Designs is an equipment insert that enhances the ability to organize the contents of a Shimoda Designs Action X50 Backpack, Action X70 Backpack, Carry-On Roller Version 2, and DV Roller. Designed to store camera, video, audio, or digital media equipment, it can accommodate up to two DSLR cameras and nine lenses, including a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens; or two DSLR cameras and five lenses, including a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, plus a medium-sized drone kit.
Equipment placed within this insert’s non-abrasive interior can be arranged using its 11 padded, touch-tab dividers. To further complement a compatible backpack, the Large DSLR Core Unit Version 2 also features a zippered side opening that aligns with the backpack’s own zippered side opening for seamless accessibility to the equipment inside when the backpack is rotated from one’s back to front with the right side facing upward.
This Core Unit features a soft, protective closed-cell foam construction and includes a Shimoda Designs Skin. A zippered cover with a top handle, the Skin protects the Core Unit from dust and allows it to be used independently, whether on its own or within another larger bag or case.
Version 2 of the Large DSLR Core Unit has been revised to allow use of the Action-X side camera access. The new side access point integrates exclusively with our new Action-X50 backpack and features all the popular features of our current Core Unit system, including EVA laminated dividers and sidewalls, multi-use dust cover, and a new frame to add extra shape and support to the insert.
- Pro Mirrorless/DSLR Camera Fit – The Large DSLR Core Unit V2 is designed for photographers who use mid- to Pro-size camera equipment. It is sized to accommodate professional gripped Mirrorless or gripped DSLR bodies as tall as the Canon EOS-1DX or Nikon D5.
- Long Lens Compatible – The Large DSLR Core Unit V2 Unit has the same volume of a combined Small and Medium Core Unit, and it allows uers to store larger telephoto lenses up to 400mm 2.8.
- Quick Side Camera Access – The Large DSLR Core Unit V2 features an integrated side access. You can now have full rear-access and side-access at the same time with our new design. The side door connects to the backpack’s side-panel door and operates seamlessly.
- Protective EVA Shell and Dividers – Our Core Unit walls and dividers are constructed with EVA. This ensures much greater protection than cheaper PE foams used in most camera bags. With EVA we have greater control over the density and quality of materials used to protect your gear. It also means our walls can be thinner and use less internal volume while still providing superior protection.We chose to laminate both the Jersey exterior shell and Tricot lining to the EVA. This makes the overall unit and dividers one piece which leads to a tighter design eliminates any sloppiness with the fastening of dividers. The shape of the actual divider tabs has a unique inward taper. This simple concept makes setting up the Core Unit and adjusting in the field much easier as it limits the catching of the fastener while inserting the divider.
- Light-Weight, Water-Repellant & Multipurpose Skin – The Core Unit has a multi-purpose cover designed to be light and packable. The shell material has water-resistant PU coating and meets C6 environmental standards. The Skin’s primary function is a storage case for the padded Core Units, ideal for when your gear is at home and not in use. It keeps the Core Unit sealed and dust free. Its secondary function is to use as a packing cell. A user can fill it with clothing or other common items and pack it in their backpack or carry-on roller. It offers an extra layer of organization to your workflow and travel transitions. It’s also very handy for keeping wet and dirty gear separated.
