Lowepro Viewpoint CS 60 Case for GoPro Review

A few months ago I purchased a GoPro Hero 7 Black as I had also been given a drone for my birthday and wanted to start shooting some video for YouTube vlogs.

When you get your GoPro you also get various bits and pieces which come with it and undoubtedly you will purchase other accessories depending on your requirements. At this point, how do you keep all of these accessories, spare batteries, cables etc. together? For me, I looked around Amazon and settled upon the CamKix Case for GoPro Hero 5, 6 and 7.

Although the CamKix case is good, as soon as I purchased more accessories it became clear that I needed another case. For me, the CamKix was wide yet shallow so didn’t accommodate some of my accessories, meaning that I would have to buy an extra case to fit the surplus items or try and find a case which would take all of my GoPro gear.

This is where the Lowepro Viewpoint CS 60 Case comes in.

Measuring approximately 19cm wide, 19cm high and 10cm deep, the Viewpoint CS 60 fits in my camera bag easier than the CamKix case which measures approximately 23cm wide, 17cm high and 7cm deep.

The Viewpoint CS 60 has a soft feel exterior made from rugged, weather-resistant 600D and 420D material, has two zip pulls and a short carry strap on the top edge. It feels very well made, which is something you would expect from a brand like Lowepro.

Upon opening the Viewpoint CS 60 you will see that the case is well padded and the main compartment has padded dividers which can be moved around to your liking. Here I am able to house my GoPro, my microphone windshield and a housing which has a cold mount allowing me to attach my microphone mount.

On the inside of the lid you will see two flaps with velcro strap closures. Upon opening the first and smaller flap you will find slots for two SD and two micro SD cards.

Upon opening the second and larger flap you will find several elasticated straps for accessories such as spare batteries, microphone, microphone adapter and GoPro shorty stick, whilst on the inside of the flap there is a zip pocket which I use to store cables.

For me this is the perfect solution for carrying my GoPro equipment when out and about. I have kept the CamKix case and removed the EVA from the inside so that I can store the chargers and cables for my GoPro and drone.

Now, of course you don’t just have to use this case for your GoPro, it can be used for small camera systems or simply to hold photographic accessories which you want to house in a protective case.
