Small Core Unit

The Small Core Unit is a simple insert with a multitude of uses. It is designed to be used on its own or in combination with up to three additional Core Units to expand the amount of protected equipment space in a Shimoda pack or roller as more camera gear is needed. Breaking down the equipment protection into modules allows the user to minimise weight and bulk and to never carry more padded sections than is needed for the day’s camera kit. The inserts can be configured to allow simultaneous rear, side and top access to the camera kit, and to customise the bag to a user’s shooting style and the terrain ahead of them. The Small Core Unit includes a multi-purpose skin designed to be light and packable. The Skin’s primary function is as a storage case for the padded Core Unit.

When gear is at home and not in use, the skin keeps it sealed inside the Core Unit and dust free. Its secondary function is 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. The third function is to act as a shoulder bag, allowing a camera kit to be packed into the Small Core Unit and carried on a quick hike out of basecamp or a casual walk around a city while traveling.

Medium Core Unit Mirrorless

The Mirrorless Medium Core Unit was designed for users who prefer to shoot with smaller systems built around mirrorless, rangefinder or compact DSLR cameras. Using a unique fold-over upper rim, this Core Unit allows for a more efficient use of space which can potentially lead to a lower overall backpack profile. When using shorter cameras and lenses, the 3 cm (1.2 in.) rim folds down so you gain a little more volume out of your backpack or compress it further. This also provides an extra point of equipment protection along the Core Unit’s outer edge. When your gear requires the full Core Unit height, just fold the sides back up to the standard open-rim configuration.

The padded EVA walls and sensibly designed set of EVA dividers allow the perfect gear fit. The Mirrorless Medium Core Unit is designed to work in conjunction with our Small Core Unit, which can be positioned above or below the Medium unit to give you the same total volume as a Large Core Unit. This allows much greater flexibility for different shooting missions. The Mirrorless Medium Core Unit unit comes standard with a removable Skin.

Medium Core Unit DSLR

They are named Core Units simply because they represent the Core of the Shimoda system. Their modular versatility allows users to simplify there gear needs while simultaneously enabling more usability options. The Medium is designed to accommodate larger sized camera bodies – but that doesn’t mean it is limited to them. It works wonders with any gear, but especially with gear requiring more depth.

Its modular design means it can be used on its own or in combination with a Small sized unit. Having both Small and Medium offers three size options; a Small on its own, a Medium on its own, or a combination of both allowing even more protected storage. Owners of the Explore 60 can even stack another Small in the top of the pack - opening up more sizing options without the penalty of additional weight and bulk seen in traditional camera bag designs.

Large Core Unit

We built the Large DSLR Core Unit for photographers and filmmakers who want to carry more (and potentially larger) camera gear in their backpack. The Large DSLR size lets you pack taller pro-sized bodies, and it is also ideal for telephoto lenses longer than 70-200mm 2.8. Its greater volume simply means you can pack more gear and give yourself more shooting options in the field.

It comes standard with a removable skin, which provides dust protection when in storage at home or on its own as packing cell. Use it in your backpack or your carry-on roller and add an extra layer of organization to mountain adventures and travel transitions.

Width: Ext. 11.4in/29cm, Int. 10.6in/27cm
Height: Ext. 15.7in/40cm, Int. 15in/38cm
