Shimoda Action X50 Starter Kits (Black) with Shimoda Large Core Unit for Mirrorless Camera

Shimoda Action X50 Starter Kits (Black)

The Action X50 is designed for photographers who need to carry a lot of gear yet still be agile and part of the action.

Adjustable Harness

It features an adjustable harness to achieve a perfect fit, and a removable belt to quickly streamline the bag for urban or event situations. A removable helmet holder, TPU ski compression straps, and a newly revised side-access system with YKK splashguard zippers round out the set of adventure-friendly features.

Roll Top and Zipper

It has a space-efficient and expandable roll-top with a quick access zipper. Finally, it delivers convenience to aggressive and time-sensitive action photography situations via its newly improved side camera access.

Multiple Access Points

The Shimoda Action X50 backpack offers rear and side access options. The side opening is ideal for quick, under-the-arm access without completely removing the pack, and the rear opening allows wide, unobstructed access to the bulk of your gear for less time-sensitive shooting situations.

Adjustable Torso Height

The X50 has 4 height options with approximately 10 cm (4-inch) of vertical adjustment. This means the same backpack can fit short or tall — male or female — torso heights, ensuring a custom fit for everyone.

Core Unit Modular Camera Insert System

Core Units provide shockproof protection for Mirrorless, SLR, and DSLR cameras and lenses, and they ensure a user never carries more padding and weight than necessary. A user can increase their layout options with two or more Core Units by stacking and shifting how they are placed in our camera pack.

Expandable Roll-Top

The roll-top can expand with a volume range of 7-liters so the bag can be adjusted to your gear needs while maintaining a tight and compact fit.

Sport-Friendly Design

With action sport-specific features like a removable helmet holder, ski fastening straps, hydration routing, and extra-durable materials to help protect the pack from abrasion, Action X packs are designed to perform seamlessly for photographers and filmmakers who like to be embedded in the action.

Shimoda Large Core Unit for Mirrorless Camera

The Large Mirrorless Core Unit provides shockproof protection for Mirrorless, SLR, and DSLR cameras and lenses, and it ensures a user never carries more padding and weight than necessary. It integrates seamlessly with the side access of the Action X30 and Explore V2 30 backpacks, and it maxes out the interior equipment carrying volume of both packs. It will also fit in every available Shimoda backpack and roller except for the Explore V2 25. It includes all the popular features of the Core Unit system, including EVA laminated dividers and sidewalls, a lightweight and versatile removable skin, and an aluminum frame to add extra rigidity and support. The Mirrorless depth is ideal for mirrorless and non-gripped DSLR cameras up to 12 cm (4.7-inch) tall along with lenses longer than 70-200mm 2.8.
