The '72' is our latest camera bag - purpose built for those who want to carry just one small camera with a high degree of protection.

Within the interior of this compact bag, the padding that makes up the front, rear and side walls of its body is constructed from two overlapping layers of closed cell foam cut in different patterns – keeping all edges and corners fully protected. Further padding has been sewn into the bottom of the bag, and we have also included a removable padded base. Beneath the outer lid is a top flap, once again made of foam, protecting the camera on all six sides in the event of a knock or fall.

With an outer body constructed of either Billingham 3 layer canvas or FibreNyte, the Billingham 72 offers the ultimate in water resistance and provides full defence against inclement weather conditions. Both materials are hard-wearing yet lightweight and never require reproofing, remaining moisture- and heat-resistant for their entire life. FibreNyte is an extra-rugged material that is more colour-fast and delivers even better protection against wear and tear.

The robust outer fabric, together with the contoured main flap that reaches over the sides of the bag, means your camera will be protected whatever the weather.

The bag’s Quick Release System comprises a strong leather tab and brass ClogBall, enabling fast opening with one hand to retrieve the camera, while securing the equipment in transit. Each model is reinforced with the finest top-grain leather, and all fittings are made from solid brass.

The shoulder sling is extra strong and made of shuttle-woven spun polyester. It can be adjusted for length or removed completely – making it ideal to carry as a shoulder bag itself, or as a storage case inside another bag whilst travelling, such as our Weekender bag. On the rear of the bag we have also included a wide belt loop for those who prefer to keep their camera a little closer.

A vertical padded divider attached with Velcro® is included with the Billingham 72, enabling the photographer to configure the bag and adjust it to fit their individual requirements. For cameras with slightly larger lenses attached, the divider can be repositioned or removed to create more space.

A small pocket on the front provides storage for a spare battery, lens cap or memory cards.

As with all Billingham bags, the 72 is manufactured with extreme precision, meeting meticulous technical standards. Once it has passed Billingham’s strict quality controls, each bag is adorned with a laser-engraved woven label containing an individual 10-digit barcoded serial number as part of the company’s Unique Identifier (UI) system, allowing the bag to be registered, identified and tracked throughout its life.

At 150 x 130 x 190mm (WxDxH), the Billingham 72 is the ideal size for premium fixed lens cameras such as the Leica Q, Fujifilm X100 range or Sony DSC-RX1R series, and many small mirrorless system cameras with one small standard lens, such as the Fujifilm X-T2, Olympus OMD E-M series, Leica M rangefinders or Canon EOS M kits. It is also ideal for many old 35mm (and even a few 120 film) cameras of a similar size.

The bag itself, with shoulder sling attached, weighs just 0.46kg.

The 72 is covered by our 5 year manufacturer’s guarantee and is made at our factory in England.

This bag was bought as a companion to a Billingham Hadley Pro, which normally carries at least body and 3 or 4 lenses plus accessories. On occasions it is great to just select a single lens and for this the Billingham 72 fulfils the requirement. Perfect for a Leica M and OK for the back up Leica TL. The bag has all the quality expected from Billingham.
Although it fulfils most of the requirements, there is little or no space for accessories such as viewfinders and lens hoods. With the TL the Visoflex must be removed, returned to its case and squeezed into the front pocket. Before committing make sure this bag is actually big enough for your needs. Longer focal length lenses will just not fit e.g. anything over 90 mm. The Hadley Digital would be a better bet in many cases.
