Gura Gear Bataflae 32L Camera Backpack
I'm just back (and somewhat recovered) from a 2+ week photo trip to Hawaii (Maui, Big Island, Kauai & Oahu). The trip was a great experience with lots of stories to tell and photos to share - though rain, thick cloud cover and high winds left some potential great photo opportunities on the list for another trip.
First up is a review of the Gura Gear Bataflae 32L. This is an excellently-designed backpack that worked out very well on this trip.
Even if you are not in the market for a high-end backpack, you might like the Kilauea Volcano night photo - and the brief summary of shooting the 500 L II in the rain.

From Spider Camera Holster:
The Spider Monkey Offers a Unique Solution That Allows Photo Accessories to Hang from a Belt for Quick-Draw Access; Visit Booth #330 for a Hands-On Demonstration
Las Vegas, NV – WPPI EXPO 2013 (Booth #330), March 11, 2013 - Spider Holster, a company specializing in unique holster-style camera carrying solutions for photographers, today announced the launch of its newest item, the Spider Monkey Holster for photographic accessories.
Spider Monkey is a compact yet durable holster clip that easily attaches to any belt or camera bag loop allowing photographers to hang their most-used equipment for quick-draw accessibility. Combined with a series of purpose-built Spider Monkey attachments, the new line offers photographers a new level of workflow flexibility. To learn more about the Spider Monkey Accessory Holster, photographers can visit, and attendees of the WPPI Expo (March 11-13, 2013 MGM Grand, Las Vegas, NV) can visit Spider Holster in booth #330 for a hands-on demonstration.
The scalable Spider Monkey accessory system eliminates the need for photographers to carry an added shoulder bag by hanging their most oft-used tools right on their belt. The durable Spider Monkey Base clip and tab are built for long-term use, with the ability to securely hold camera accessories weighing about one pound including flashes, light meters and battery packs. The Spider Monkey Tab attaches to the accessory with a robust adhesive tab (which removes cleanly after use) and an additional Velcro attachment band for ultimate security. The Spider Monkey’s built-in lock enables the user to ensure the accessory is securely hung and ready for quick-draw retrieval, all with one hand.
“Offering the same great benefits and flexibility as our Spider Camera Holster, the Spider Monkey accessory clip completely eliminates the strain that comes with the tangle of equipment bags and swing of neck and shoulder straps by safely holstering the gear you need on your belt,” said Shai Eynav, President of Spider Holster. “By transferring the camera accessories to the waste, we add a new level of accessibility to essential gear that allows photographers to get the best image at the right time, whenever needed.”
In addition to the holster clip, adhesive tab and the Velcro attachment loop which comprise the base Spider Monkey system. Spider Holster will soon be offering several add-on purpose-built items that will further enhance the functionality of the Spider Monkey, including a water bottle pouch, modular rain cover, and lens pouches for small to medium sized lenses.
The base Spider Monkey system, with holster clip, adhesive tab and the Velcro attachment loop will carry an MSRP of $17.00. Spider Monkey will be available for purchase at Spider Holster authorized dealers.

This is's Weekend Recap for the week ending March 9nd, 2013.
In the news...On Sunday, both Canon and Nikon extended previously running rebate programs while Canon created additional programs for the EOS 5D Mark III, 6D, 7D, 60D, and EOS M cameras. Rebate programs from both companies are scheduled to end March 30th.
On Monday, Nikon announced three new COOLPIX cameras – the S3500, P330, and most notably, the COOLPIX A. The S3500 features a 20 megapixel sensor with image stabilization and 720p video recording, while the P330 features a 12 megapixel sensor with image stabilization, full 1080p HD video recording, Wi-fi compatibility with the WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter, and built-in GPS.
The standout, however, was the announcement of Nikon’s first COOLPIX with a DX-sized sensor, the COOLPIX A. Sporting the same sensor found in their consumer grade DSLRs with an 18.5mm f/2.8 prime lens, the COOLPIX A promises DSLR-like performance from its 16 megapixel CMOS sensor, full manual controls, and RAW output.
Also on Monday, Nikon announced the AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR lens. Although the lens is designed for full-frame bodies, DX-format bodies will enjoy an equivalent focal range of 120-600mm. The new NIKKOR 80-400mm lens should be available in April with a suggested price slightly under $2,700.00.
On Wednesday, we posted an announcement regarding the availability of white lens hoods at B&H. The novel white lens hoods, made by Vello, are available to fit various Canon EF 70-200mm L zoom lenses.
On Friday, Sigma announced pricing for its updated 30mm f/1.4 DC HSM Lens. The lens will have a suggested retail price of $499.00.
And, for our deal of the week…
On Sunday, we posted a deal from the Canon Store where you could get a Refurbished 5D Mark III DSLR Camera for 15% off, or $2,379.33 plus tax. Compare that to a new model going for $2,949.00.
This has been the’s Weekend Recap. Thanks for listening, and as always, happy shooting!
