Think Tank Photo Releases Retrospective Casual Canvas Laptop Cases
- We just introduced a retro-inspired alternative to conventional and obvious laptop cases for carrying expensive technical devices discreetly—the Retrospective Laptop Case. Inspired by the popularity of the company's inconspicuous Retrospective canvas shoulder bag series, these new laptop cases are available in 13-inch and 15-inch sizes and three colors: Pinestone or Blue Slate in sand-washed 100% premium cotton canvas, or Black in polyspun.
The Retrospective 13L
and Retrospective 15L
laptop cases’ retro look mixes "Old-School" with "New-School" that is a throwback to the days when bags where visually simple but highly functional. These new laptop cases are designed for today’s laptop owners whose personal style resonates with classic materials and design, as well as wanting their electronics to be readily accessible yet well-concealed.
Like all shoulder bags in the series, the Retrospective Laptop Cases are built with durability and comfort in mind. They feature premium quality YKK RC Fuse zippers, metal hardware, leather accents, and a cushioned and padded nonslip shoulder strap that can be positioned for all-day comfort. A breakthrough in design is the smooth back-panel that reduces wear and tear on clothing. Besides carrying and concealing expensive laptops, the rear pocket is designed to hold a Tablet and the main compartment easily fits file folders, books or binders. An easily accessible front organizer features a key tether with pockets for pens, business cards and small accessories. Treated with a water resistant coating, Retrospective Laptop Cases offers double protection from the elements with a seam-sealed rain cover.
Another attractive aspect of the Retrospective collection is the price. In fact, distressed canvas bags of comparable quality are priced up to $300 whereas the Retrospective 13L is $149.75 and Retrospective 15L is $159.75. Materials
- Pine Stone & Blue Slate Exterior: All fabric exterior treated for durable water resistance, plus fabric underside has a polyurethane coating for extra water resistance, sand-washed 100% cotton canvas, antique nickel-plated metal hardware, premium quality YKK RC Fuse zippers, polyspun webbing, 3-ply bonded nylon thread

RØDE Announces VideoMic Go!
The new VideoMic GO is the latest release in the Australian audio company’s successful range of VideoMic microphones for on-camera usage.
Compact and light weight by design, the VideoMic GO delivers clear, crisp, directional audio with incredible ease of use.
Its tight pickup area focuses directly in front of the microphone and reduces other surrounding sounds, ensuring that the user can isolate their subject from distracting background noise. At only 73gm (2.5oz) it is RØDE’s lightest on-camera microphone and sports an impressively compact form factor.
Designed to be as user-friendly as possible, the VideoMic GO has no switches or settings, and is powered by the camera or recording device’s external microphone input, requiring no batteries to operate.
The microphone features an integrated suspension based on Rycote’s Lyre system, which utilises a single piece of thermoplastic to isolate the microphone from knocks and bumps that could otherwise interfere with performance. In addition to its superior performance the Lyre system is hard-wearing and will never wear out, sag or snap, unlike traditional elastic-based suspension.
“The VideoMic GO is the perfect microphone for consumers wanting to get started shooting high-definition video with their DSLR, ‘point-and-shoot’ or even GoPro cameras.” Commented Damien Wilson, RØDE’s Global Marketing & Sales Director. “We’ve all experienced how terrible the audio can be using a camera’s built-in microphone, and the VideoMic GO is the answer to getting audio that matches the quality of the images, without the additional EQ and level features that are available on our other VideoMic models.”
“This user-friendly ‘plug and play’ approach, combined with its lightweight, small form factor make it ideal for carrying in small camera bags, ready at any time to capture the moment.” Adorama

Shenandoah National Park and Canon Super Telephoto Lens Shootout
Field use is incredibly helpful for gear evaluation. As you likely figured out through the newsletter and the Zeiss 15mm f/2.8 Distagon T* ZE Lens review
, I was able to spend some time in Shenandoah National Park
last month. While wide angle landscapes were on the to-capture list, wildlife photography was my primary purpose for this trip.
To be more specific, I wanted to know which of three following big white lenses was my favorite for wildlife photography. Canon EF 200-400mm f/4 L IS USM Ext 1.4x LensCanon EF 500mm f/4.0 L IS II USM LensCanon EF 600mm f/4.0 L IS II USM Lens
And my answer, as you may have predicted, is "It depends." Each lens has its strengths.
From an image quality standpoint, all of these lenses deliver very high pro-grade results. It doesn't matter which lens you pick in this regard. From a "look" perspective, I prefer the more-blurred background, more-compressed look of the longest focal lengths. Again, all of these lenses have very long focal lengths available, but the 600 f/4 has the advantage. The 200-400 L's long focal length comes with the built-in 1.4x extender moved into the optical path, which sets it back one stop in the max aperture comparison. The two primes also did less focus hunting in low light, peripheral AF point scenarios.
If you can get closer to your subject and there are obstructions (trees, branches, weeds, etc.) in play, a longer focal length quickly becomes a liability. The farther away you are from the subject, the more likely that these obstructions will factor into your results. The first problem is that obstructions detract from your final image. A branch across your subject's head is not going to be welcomed. And an even bigger problem is that the obstructions can catch the attention of your camera's autofocus system, resulting in a subject that is not even in focus. Such images are throw-aways – if you can even get the photo. In SNP, I had a black bear cub run past me in the thick woods and I was not able to even capture a memory photo as the camera could not lock focus.
Because the white-tailed deer in Shenandoah National Park are relatively tolerant of humans, I was able to get closer to my subjects (at least some of the time) on this trip. And because I was shooting with LOTS of obstructions (often in relatively thick woods), getting closer was typically desirable. The 200-400 L quickly became my go-to lens on this trip and has earned permanence in my kit. Having the very long range of focal lengths immediately available when needed/desired, this lens was the ideal choice for this type of photography.
I had been pursuing a pair of buck for two hours when the larger of the two finally and suddenly walked out into a clearing. And at the perfect moment, it stopped and became alert. I had diffuse sunlight at my back. The deer's head was framed between the closest background trees and the foreground was uninterrupted. In the very short duration of time that the ideal picture remained available, I would have been very fortunate to get one acceptably-framed picture with a prime lens (due to the sneaker zooming required). But with the 200-400 L, I was able to rapidly capture a number of framing variations.
I used the 500 L IS II and 600 L IS II during the trip and they performed excellently, but when the shot really counted, I found myself going with the 200-400 L IS in this location.
Check out some images in the Shenandoah National Park gallery
Since many of these images were captured with the big white zoom lens, Canon EF 200-400mm f/4 L IS USM Ext 1.4x Lens sample pictures
are also now available.

Kenny Rogers Highlights Imaging USA in Phoenix
From Imaging USA
: Annual International Photography Convention and Expo Heads to Phoenix Phoenix, AZ – November 15, 2013
– Imaging USA, the annual get together for professional photographers, is bringing photography education, networking and inspiration to Phoenix this winter.
Just two months away, the 2014 edition of Imaging USA is set for Jan. 12 to14 at the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, Ariz. More than 10,000 industry professionals will descend upon the Valley of the Sun for the three day convention.
Imaging USA is organized by Professional Photographers of America (PPA), the world’s largest non-profit photography association. The event features a three-day Imaging EXPO tradeshow with more than 600 booths, several all-inclusive parties and more than 100 speeches, presentations and hands-on demonstrations by some of the most respected names in the photographic industry.
This year, Imaging USA will feature a man more known for music than his photography, the legendary singer songwriter Kenny Rogers. Rogers, who was just inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame with a stirring tribute at the Country Music Awards, will be on-hand at Imaging USA to be recognized by PPA for his imagery with an honorary master of photography degree. He will also present his new photography book, give an hour-long Q&A to discuss his life and photography and an exhibit of his work will be display throughout the convention.
“We could see in his work that Mr. Rogers is an accomplished photographer, but when we approached him about the honorary master’s degree, we were immediately impressed with his enthusiasm for photography,” said PPA president, Ralph Romaguera Sr., M.Photog.Cr., CPP, API, F-ASP. “He’s obviously well-known as an entertainer, but he truly is a remarkably talented photographer. PPA is excited to honor Kenny and have him share his passion with us all in Phoenix.”
Rogers will receive his degree along with the 161 other photographers who earned PPA degrees in 2013. Immediately following PPA’s Award and Degree ceremony will be the inaugural presentation of the World Photographic Cup (WPC). Twenty three countries from all over the globe formed teams to participate in the first-ever WPC, an event geared to unite photographers in a spirit of friendship and cooperation, and crown the best photography in the world.
Along with Kenny Rogers are programs from some of the biggest names in photography. Imaging USA’s renowned educational classes are geared to improve a photographer’s business skills, photographic repertoire and use of photography and post-production technologies. The event also features several photographic exhibits, mentoring opportunities, portfolio reviews and much more.
Imaging USA is the longest running international photographic convention, expo and image exhibition in the world, drawing thousands of professionals from across the globe. The event dates back to 1880, when it began as the annual convention and trade show for PPA. It continues to grow and evolve along with industry trends and technology.
Because PPA believes in the value Imaging USA provides, it offers a free full-registration to Imaging USA as a perk for new members. Professional Active PPA memberships are available for $27.92 a month.
For everyone else, there are many different ways to experience Imaging USA, including but not limited to the full conference, a full conference plus pre-conference courses option, tradeshow only, the International Photographic Competition and off-site classes throughout the surrounding areas.
