Retrospective 7 Coming Soon!
 
In May, we will release our new Retrospective® 7 shoulder camera bag in three color options. Designed for standard DSLR systems, its classic design along with modern improvements create the perfect shooter’s bag. This lightweight shoulder bag comes in fabrics that offer a sense of “retro” style that appeals to many. A rear pocket has been designed to hold an iPad or an 11” MacBook Air.
 
Ergonomically designed to conform to the body, the bags are comfortable to walk with, provide quick access, and are inconspicuous to avoid unwanted attention. With broad appeal, the Retrospective series has quickly become one of the leading bag collections in the industry.
 
“Working pros to vacationers all will find the Retrospective 7 to be the most useful and functional bag for a day’s outing,” said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank Photo’s co-founder and lead designer. “It combines the broad appeal of the Retrospective design with the perfect size for carrying camera gear and your laptop or iPad.”
 
Along with the current fabric option of black polyspun or Pinestone canvas, Think Tank is introducing a new canvas color to the Retrospective line: Slate Blue.
 
Retrospective 7 features include:

  • iPad/MacBook pocket
  • Cushioned and padded nonslip shoulder strap for all day comfort.
  • Sound Silencers™ to turn off the front flap hook and loop for silent operation.
  • Organizational and zippered pockets for accessories.
  • Removable divider set for custom layouts.
  • Convenient carrying handle for grab and go.
  • Seam sealed rain cover.
  • Expandable front pocket for DSLR body or accessories.
  • Business card slot under the front flap for identification.
  • High quality YKK zippers.

Think Tank photo has announced updates to their Modular Rotation System and Modular Rotation System Skin Components:
 
Think Tank Photo Releases Completely Redesigned Modular Rotation System
 
Santa Rosa, Calif. -- In response to customer feedback, Think Tank Photo’s has completely redesigned its Modular Rotation System to provide additional features and benefits, including easier photography gear retrieval, better equipment fit, and an updated/inclusive style. The Modular Rotation System consists of three product groupings: Lens Cases, Gear Pouches, and the Modular Component Set V2.0. The new items will be available for sale in December at www.thinktankphoto.com.
 
The Modular Rotation System is part of Think Tank Photo’s integrated modular belt carrying solution, which also includes its Skin™ components. The Lens Cases and Gear Pouches feature padded components and the Skin components features unpadded pouches.
 
The new Modular Component Set V2.0 includes the Lens Changer 50 V2.0, LC 75 Pop Down V2.0, Strobe Stuff, Speed Changer V2.0. All can be transported in the breathable Large Travel Pouch. All of the elements can be carried as a set or as individual items on Think Tank Photo’s Pro Speed Belt V2.0, Steroid Speed Belt V2.0, or Skin Belt V2.0. The new Keep It Up™ Shoulder Strap provides vertical support to any Think Tank Photo belt and includes a memory card holder.
 
The Lens Cases’ new features are:
 
• Wide mouth opening allows for smoother lens retrieval and replacement.
 
• One-hand drawstring closure with the auto-locking mechanism: only one hand is needed to securely close the pouch.
 
• Zippered bottom pocket includes seam-sealed rain cover.
 
• Top handle allows for easy gathering of multiple pouches.
 
• Smooth back reduces wear on clothing and helps components slide easily around the belt.
 
• Padding under lens cover protects lenses from bumps and bruises.
 
• Improved front pocket material for increased durability and elasticity.
 
The Lens Cases consist of the Lens Changer™ 15 V2.0 (accommodates tele-converters and small primes with hood in shooting position), Lens Changer™ 25 V2.0 (small telephotos with hood in shooting position), Lens Changer™ 35 V2.0 (24-70 2.8 with hood in shooting position), Lens Changer™ 50 V2.0 (wide angle lens—16-35, 17-40—with hood in shooting position), LC 75 Pop Down™ V2.0 (70-200 with hood reversed or in position), and the Lens Drop™ (standard telephoto zoom lens).
 
The Gear Pouches include the same new features as the Lens Cases, as well as:
 
• Secure front pocket with increased hook and loop.
 
• Improved rip-stop nylon for increased durability and discrete styling.
 
The Gear Pouches consist of the Strobe Stuff™ (pro-size flash with some lens modifiers attached), Slim Changer™ (standard-size body, lens not attached), Speed Changer™ V2.0 (pro-sized body, lens not attached, and small telephotos and pro-size batteries), Stuff It !™ (accessory pouch for all your stuff: CF cards, batteries, filters or pocket wizards), Little Stuff It !™ (accommodates most point and shoot cameras, including Canon G12 & Nikon P7000), Hubba Hubba Hiney™ (70-200 2.8 lying down or two to three smaller telephotos; includes shoulder strap), and the R U Hot ?™ (for water bottle, hat, gloves).
 
Both the Lens Cases and Gear Pouches come with Think Tank Photo’s unique Rotate and Lock design feature so that components slide along the belt or fasten in a specific position on the belt.

From Think Tank Photo:
 
We just released solutions for carrying those smaller items that tend to rattle around and get lost in your bags and pockets. These include Credential Holder, an AA Battery Holder, a Passport Holder, and Large and Small Travel Pouches.
 
Credential Holder
Our new Credential Holder features a clear window that always keeps credentials of various sizes in view, an adjustable neck strap, a zippered business card pocket on the front flap, a roomy interior pocket that fits a smart phone, and a back side that has two pen pockets and a pocket that fits a reporter's pad or small note pad. Exterior dimensions: 5.7" W x 7" H x 0.3" D (14.5 x 17.8 x 0.8cm). Weight: 0.1lbs (0.05kg).
 
AA Battery Holder
Small AA batteries are one of those accessories that tend to fall to the bottom of whatever bag you're using. With the new AA Battery Holder, you can store eight AA batteries in a soft, compact case that folds in half and is easy to find. Exterior Dimensions: 3" W x 3" H x 0.5" D (7.6 x 7.6 x 1.3cm). Weight: 0.05lbs (0.02kg).
 
Passport Holder
If you travel a lot, especially in humid or inclement weather, you know how beaten up your passport gets. With our new Passport Holder you can carry one passport, airline ticket, credit cards and other identification in a sleek leather case. It features a front pocket for airline ticket stubs and three small pockets for additional identification, coffee gift cards, frequent flyer membership cards, and the like. External dimensions: 3.8" W x 5.5" H x 0.5" D (9.7 x 14 x 1.3cm). Weight: 0.1lbs (0.05kg).
 
Travel Pouch-Large
When forced to mix photo gear and clothing in a roller or backpack, your clothing often gets wedged into a corner. The new Travel Pouch-Large is designed to hold your clothing and other items you want to protect in a lightweight and soft pouch. It folds easily when empty and the mesh front keeps the enclosed items visible. It features a webbing carrying handle. External dimensions: 11.5" W x 15.5" H x 3" D (29.2 x 39.4 x 7.6cm). Weight: 0.3lbs (0.1kg).
 
Travel Pouch-Small
Here's a smaller pouch for organizing your non-photo gear, such as toiletries and socks. The Travel Pouch-Small is lightweight and soft, and folds easily when empty. The mesh front keeps enclosed items visible. It features a webbing carrying handle. External dimensions: 6.7" W x 10" H x 2.5" D (17 x 25.4 x 6.4cm). Weight: 0.2lbs (0.1kg).
 
Think Tank Photo is also having a 20% off sale on the Speed Freak, Speed Demon and the Speed Racer.

From Think Tank Photo:
 
When getting the shot requires extreme body movements, there are few sensations more annoying than having your gear slapping against your chest. To solve this problem, we have released the Backpack Connection Kit.
 
This accessory strap kit is designed to keep the body and lens stored in your Digital Holster stationary and snug against the torso. Carrying a Digital Holster V2.0 chest-mounted allows rapid access to the DSLR inside it while protecting the camera from dust and damage. The straps of the specially designed Backpack Connection Kit keep the Holster bag and DSLR from sagging or shifting weight during continuous movement.
 
In the Backpack Connection Kit video, Kurt Rogers explains how to attach the Think Tank Photo Backpack Connection Kit to a backpack, in order to carry a Digital Holster V2.0 bag on the backpack harness. The Backpack Connection Kit attaches to any Think Tank Photo backpack and the Digital Holster V2.0 series of camera bags.

NEWLY REDESIGNED HYDROPHOBIA® 300-600 RELEASED
 
We have upgraded our rain cover for super telephoto lenses, the Hydrophobia 300-600. The Hydrophobia 300-600 V2.0 pre-mounts to the lens hood to be quickly deployed during inclement weather. If bad weather is intermittent, the rain cover can stay in the pre-mounted position but pulled out to cover the camera when needed. The rain cover now offers a larger clear window on back for increased view of the camera and LCD screen. Version 2.0 also features a tethered lens hood cover to keep moisture or debris from hitting the front lens element, while the camera is not being used.
 
For smaller lenses up to a 70-200 we also have the Hydrophobia® 70-200 and the Hydrophobia® Flash 70-200 with built-in flash protector. They feature side arm holes for focusing and accessing switches. And now, without exposing your expensive bodies and lenses to the elements, you can change memory cards and batteries without taking off the rain covers. The external Camera Strap (included) eliminates the need to remove the strap attached to the camera body. Click here for a video showing the Hydrophobia 70-200 in action.
 
NEWLY REDESIGNED CAMERA STRAPS RELEASED
 
We have completely redesigned our Camera Straps. The Camera Strap V2.0 features non-slip material on both sides so the strap will not slip off the shoulder, even if the strap is upside down! Designed for less bulk and increased portability, the Camera Strap V2.0 also attaches to Think Tank backpacks and harnesses by using the Camera Support Straps (sold separately).

Think Tank Photo Urban Disguise V2.0
Think Photo Digital Holster V2.0
 
Think Photo Digital Holsters are one of my most-used cases. This case is very easy to take with you and provides good protection for the camera and lens - while allowing quick access. "A feature new to V2.0 is the built-in side attachment system compatible with most Modular, Skin, or Multimedia components" solves a remaining need I had for these cases and makes them much more functional.
