PhotoPlus Expo 2010: The Round Up

by Reads (8)

In a year chock full of imaging tradeshows, PhotoPlus rounds out the bunch with three days of seminars, demos and show floor madness. DCR was on the scene taking a look at all of the odds-and-ends we didn’t catch at Photokina. And as an added bonus, all of our show floor images are full-resolution, final production Canon 60D samples – two for the price of one.

Spider Holster Man
Our first stop was Spider Holster, where we took the new Black Widow holster for a spin. It’s a new, simplified version of the SpiderPro. The Black Widow holster was rigged with a Nikon D3100 for a demo.

The new holster is a thick plastic construction, and the D3100 felt secure attached to an optional accessory belt around my waist. For those unfamiliar with Spider’s holster line, a pin attached to your camera’s tripod mount clicks in to a slot on the holster so that the camera is secured at your hip. The Black Widow clicks the pin into place and a press of a lever will release it for quick shooting.

In the Bag
Lowepro had its new S&F Street and Field series of utility belts, vests and bags on display. It’s a modular system designed to accommodate a photographer’s extra lenses, flash units, even cell phone in a series of small detachable bags.

The owner can customize the system to his or her liking by choosing from the accompanying bags. One of the pieces is a lens bag with two collapsible compartments so that a photographer can place the lens he or she is using in the bag and take the other lens out for a quick swap.

The Lowepro Pro Roller features another unique design with a compartmentalized, removable bag inside of a larger rolling bag. Each bag can be used independent of the other one. It’s a thoughtful design with obvious appeal to a frequent flyer.
