There is a lot of equipment needed for any video shoot. Transporting all that gear separately can be a strenuous task. Luckily, that is not necessary with a good equipment bag. All the small pieces of equipment that you need for a deposition video can fit in one of these bags and remedy a headache-inducing multi-trip unloading and setup process. Equipment bags need to be able to protect your gear as well.


Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a bag to transport your gear:


  • Protection – padding all around the main body of the bag
  • Separation – internal walls to store multiple items without any collision between items
  • Portability – size and weight limitations and layout of straps


Here are a few options I recommend that cover these bases:

1. Neewer Camera Case w/ Tripod Holder


The Neewer Camera Case is a good equipment bag to transport your gear safely and efficiently to your deposition video shoots. It checks all the boxes in terms of protection and separation with all of the external and internal padding. The backpack straps make this bag easy to carry while leaving your hands free to grab anything else you need to bring with you.


This bag has great functionality with the ability to carry your tripod on the side, freeing up your hand to carry one more item in one trip.


  • Durable, padded waterproof exterior
  • Tripod holder
  • Adjustable internal padded compartments
  • Backpack straps for ease of transport



Great camera bag. The compartments can be adjusted to hold the different sized lens. The padding is adequate to protect the camera and lenses. Carrying this bag is simplified with the shoulder straps and handle.

2. Estarer Camera Backpack

This Estarer Camera Backpack is a bit bigger than the first option, but it sacrifices the tripod strap for the extra space. If you carry more than just a few lenses with your camera, such as chargers, extra batteries, or small LED lights, this backpack will fit all your gear easily.


The dividers inside are well padded to make sure all your small equipment stays safe in transport. The materials used in this bag are a bit higher quality than the first option, but I still find myself missing the tripod strap from the first option.


This may not concern you if what you are looking for is better padding and higher quality fabric. This bag is a great option for anyone looking for durability and more space inside.


  • Designed for durability 
  • 10 padded internal compartments
  • Padded laptop pocket in the rear
  • Backpack straps for ease of transport



A nice, compact backpack with plenty of room for the camera, accessories, laptop, tablet, etc. the interior is well padded, and movable sections allow configuration however you’d like. There are extra pockets to separate the camera system, laptop, and tablet plus an exterior pocket if you need to stash keys, etc.


It’s a small bag so don’t expect to pack a system with very large /long components. That being said, I’ve packed a whole lot of accessories very happily in it!

3. Tarion Camera Backpack

The Tarion Camera Backpack is by far the most stylish option on this list.  It looks like a regular canvas backpack, but it has padded dividers inside the bottom compartment to keep your camera, lenses, and other small equipment safe and secure. The top compartment is more open with a drawstring around the rim for those less breakable items, such as cords, extra batteries, and SD card sleeves.


If you are looking for a fashionable option to show off your style instead of having a plain black bag just like everyone else, this option is for you. You sacrifice a bit of functionality to get that style, but the space in the bag is functional in its own way.


  • Versatile, stylish backpack design
  • Padded compartments for gear
  • Open compartment for cords, etc.
  • Resilient canvas body



I am so amazed by this camera backpack. When I was shopping, I looked at so many bags and decided on this specific bag. I love the color, the quality, THE PRICE, and the style of the bag. I can carry it around on a daily basis and I even plan to travel with it. It’s a perfect size!
