Think Tank Photo Camera Bags
Think Tank Photo announced 23 new camera bags, the highlights of which are the Urban Disguise line, a line of Digital Holsters, Airport Ultralight, and the Change Up bags. In addition, Think Tank Photo is announcing that they'll be contributing a portion of the proceeds from sales of their Urban Disguise bags to Reporters Without Borders, an organization that fights for press freedom.
The Urban Disguise line of camera bags is designed specifically to not look like a camera bag. They're created to minimize how the sometimes several thousand dollar investment can stick out like a sore thumb. There are six sizes, ranging from the Urban Disguise 10 which can hold a compact SLR with attached lens and 1-2 lenses with a hood attached, up to the Urbain Disguise 60 that can handle multiple SLRs, lenses and a 15-17" laptop.
The Digital Holster line is for people who only need to carry one camera with them. There are five sizes available and they all have a "pop down" bottom to handle different lens lengths. The smallest model (Digital Holster 10) is meant for entry-level and compact SLRs. The largest model (Digital Holster 50) can handle pro-size SLRs (like the Nikon D2Xs or Canon EOS -D Mark series) with a 70-200mm lens. An optional harness allows the holster to be carried on the chest for easy access.
The Airport Ultralight is a lightweight, but protective backpack designed to work with rolling cases. It's small enough to fit in overhead compartments on small aircraft, but it can handle multiple SLRs and lenses (depending on how things are configured).
The Change Up bag can be used as a waist pack, shoulder bag, or can be used with a chest harness. It has a removable padded insert, stretchable side pockets, a rail system for Modulus components and an included rain cover.
