You may not want to admit it, but I know that you were more "focused" on the photographers at the 2012 Olympic Games in London than on the athletes. Unfortunately, the TV cameras did not spend as much time focusing on these professional participants as we might would have liked.
 
The lack of news coverage of the photographers may have left you wondering what vest they were all wearing. Wonder no longer. Via a press release this morning, Domke revealed that they were the “Official vest supplier” to these games.
 
TIFFEN COVERS THE PRESS PHOTOGRAPHERS THAT COVER THE LONDON 2012 GAMES
 
The Tiffen Company’s Domke PhoTOGS Vest chosen as the “Photographers’ Vest” for Official Press Photographers covering the London Olympics
 
The Tiffen Company, a leading manufacturer and distributor of award-winning accessories for the still imaging, video, motion picture and broadcast markets, is pleased to announce that the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) chose to supply the 4,000 Official Press Photographers covering the London 2012 Olympic Games with Tiffen’s highly popular Domke PhoTOGS Vests. When LOCOG was looking for a supplier of photographers' vests, they naturally turned to The Tiffen Company and chose the Domke PhoTOGS Vest, the vest of choice for so many press photographers throughout the world. Put to the test during the world’s most-watched sporting event, the Domke PhoTOGS Vest earned a gold medal of its own, proving through its versatility and durability that it was more than capable of helping photographers catch every action-packed moment of the 2012 London Olympic Games.

Shown are just a few of the hundreds of Domke Vests supplied to the Olympic media.
 
“The London 2012 Olympic Games were filled with so many memorable moments, from winning Olympic Gold to setting new world records, and capturing these moments is paramount for a photojournalist,” said Steve Tiffen, president and CEO, The Tiffen Company. “We’re thrilled that the Domke PhoTOGS vest was selected as the photographers’ vest supplied by LOCOG for the Games. The flexibility of the vest lends itself to quick, fluid movements, and an array of pockets means camera accessories are readily accessible, making the task of capturing moments that happen in the blink-of-an-eye easier than ever.”
 
The number one choice of the White House News Photographers Association, Domke has carved its path as the go-to source of photo gear and accessories for photojournalists worldwide, officially securing its gold-medal status in the realm of sporting photography. The Domke PhoTOGS Vest is made of 100% machine-washable cotton, with cotton mesh panels at yoke and back to provide cooling ventilation. The vest is full-cut for comfort and practicality, and has 18 pockets in all, consisting of cargo pockets, pockets with weather-tight zipper closures, huge back pockets and pen/pencil pockets. The removable press pass holder ensures photojournalists will never be caught without proper and necessary identification.

From Domke:
 
Hauppauge, NY, November 4, 2011- Domke, a division of The Tiffen Company, has announced that their F-8 Compact Bag designed for today's popular digital SLR cameras is now available in RuggedWear.
 
Like your favorite pair of jeans, Domke bags get better with age and with the new Domke RuggedWear™ collection you don’t have to wait. The fabric produces a unique distressed and weathered look right from the start. The RuggedWear bags feature high-quality, weather-tough, durable cotton canvas that is treated with special non-solvent, environmentally friendly waxes to afford the fabric a lifelong resistance to inclement weather. The special formula allows the fabric to breathe while the waxes produce a unique, timeless, weathered, distressed patina finish. By using the included refinishing wax, bags can be restored to its original finish. As with all Domke bags, the RuggedWear collection is made in the USA.
 
The Domke F-8 has all of the great features of the F-3 in a more compact form. It is the bag to grab when the assignment doesn't call for lots of equipment. The inside and outside dimensions are nearly identical, resulting in an inconspicuous bag that carries and protects your equipment and accessories without the extra bulk.
 
Rugged, roomy, lightweight and versatile, the Domke F-8 is made of soft, supple, heavyweight, cotton canvas with RuggedWear finish.
 
Eight inner compartments and pockets including Domke's "upside-down" zipper pouch inside the weather flap offer ample storage. A removable hook and loop partition divides the padded main compartment. A padded bottom keeps equipment safe and dry.
 
Adjustable closures on the main flap allow you to easily close even the most “overstuffed” bag. Indestructible steel snap hooks secure the main weather flap.
 
Twin tracks of high-friction rubber are woven into the thickest, toughest cotton webbing so that it clings to the shoulder and runs completely around the bag. Most of the Domke bags feature street-tough steel snaphooks (a Domke hallmark) with welded steel rings, as the primary closure. It’s the toughest, most reliable, pilfer-proof yet quick-operating closure short of a padlock. List price is $129.99.
 
Domke bags are the preferred choice of the White House News Photographers Association.
