Brand: SAFROTTO.
Model: CF300.
Color: Blue.
Exterior Dimension: 16" (W) X 8" (D) X 9" (H).
Shoulder PAD: included.
Weight: 4 lb 3 oz.


I got this bag (new) on fleabay (which is really the only place to get this bag) for $36.50 plus $19 for shipping.
This bag "would" be around $150 if it were priced according normally.
The quality of the canvas and workmanship are better than the new Domke gear.

If this is too big for you to use "on the go"... for the money, this bag could be a good way to store your gear in your home.
If you're a pro, you probably understand how a bag that sits upright and opens fully is convenient. you can toss glass in and swap on the fly.

I recommend seeing all that I can fit in this bag,

Pez dispenser?! That was funny to see pulled out. Is it actually filled with Pez?

I'm having a hard time finding more info on their specific models, particularly what the differences are between the CF-1000 and CF-300, which are priced the same and aside from an inch here and there look to be pretty much identical. What made you go for one over the other?

I don't really know.
I just needed a bag larger than most. and the price was right.
there's a guy on fred miranda who posted that the saffrotto line is actually made better than the new DOMKE line, so that helped me "go for it".
I don't regret it.

but I have no idea about other models, I am sorry.

Ha! Now THAT is something I'd like to see.

These bags look really nice, and from the sound of things have more padding than the Domke equivalents. Thinking of grabbing one. Thanks for the helpful video.

The Safrotto bags have been discussed here before (as far back as 2006) and usually in a very positive light. I believe they come from China and the intent is to provide a Domke knock off. The current provider on eBay is a good seller and has a few different bags and colors. See http://stores.ebay.com …/_i.html?_fsub=​3172098012 (external link) or http://www.ebay.com/bh​p/safrotto (external link). In addition, Safrotto lens cases are available on Amazon.

Someone previously asked about the CF-1000. Some decent pictures are at http://www.dinodirect.​com …der-Canvas-Carry-Bag.html (external link).

Thanks for the heads up! Looks like a good bag for the price to carry my Godox AD600

Thanks. very timely for me. I am an angry Canadian Domke customer. Local retailers rip me off. Cost is huge. Forget about buying postal pads or inserts. I have an F3X, F2, Domke vest, and maybe 6 Domke gripper camera straps. Vest is about 20 years old
