Manfrotto Pro Backpack 50
New York, NY – October 14, 2013 – Manfrotto today announced a new collection of camera bags for DSLR cameras and photography equipment with superior technology, higher protection and an exclusive style attitude. The new, efficiently and beautifully designed bags from Manfrotto are available and in stock now from leading camera and electronics retailer Adorama.
 
Manfrotto Professional bags, featuring CPS: Camera Protection System
The new Professional collection includes four Holster Plus models, five shoulder bag models, three backpacks and two roller bags. All feature Manfrotto's CPS – Camera Protection System – that has been specifically engineered and laboratory tested to guarantee the highest level of protection and shock resistance.
 
Manfrotto's Exo-Tough Construction featured on the outer surfaces of the Professional bags line is another key protection design guarantee. The rigid multi-layer construction buffers any initial sharp impact shock. Sturdy TPU feet keep the bag off the ground and serve as shock absorbers (in all backpacks, rollers, shoulder bags and slings). Manfrotto Professional Bags have been rigorously tested in extreme simulated conditions compared to other leading brands and found to be the most protective.
 
Professional collection design features
Designed to become a workstation on the ground while shooting, the bags’ looks are as minimal and stylish as one would expect from Manfrotto. Pocket positions, closures and sizes are all designed to meet the needs of pro photographers, with hard-wearing, rip-resistant fabrics used alongside easy-to-use oversized zips and durable metal fastenings. Manfrotto has taken great care for usability and details, and designed the bags in line with Manfrotto’s best tripods.
 
Manfrotto Professional Bags Details:
To get more information and to order Manfrotto Professional bags, please visit the Adorama website.
 
Holster Plus: The four Holster Plus models are a perfect solution for safely carrying minimal amounts of gear.
 
Shoulder Bag: More a mobile office than a bag, you can easily carry and access your camera, lenses, flash, accessories, laptop or tablet, notebook, documents, keys, phone, pens, and more.
 
Backpacks: Built to carry pro DSLRs, lenses, flash, a laptop, tripod and accessories, Manfrotto Professional Backpacks are designed to function as a workstation on the ground while you're shooting.
 
Roller Bags: Manfrotto Professional Rollers shield your equipment as safely as possible, open completely and have a flap serving as a field mat. Both models comply with current airline regulations.
 
Advanced Bags Collection from Manfrotto
The Advanced Bags Collection is aimed at passionate photographers looking for full-features and reliable equipment that shares the Manfrotto heritage trusted by professionals. Find more information and order these bags at Adorama.
 
This collection, with pro-inspired features, offers room for photographic gear and personal items. They include practical designs and internal protections through sturdy inner dividers and tough-wearing fabrics. Material combination offers functional as well as aesthetic impact; rugged durable bottom half, made by High Density Nylon Fabric, ensures trust in durability and harmonizes with the equally durable but more stylish sheen of the top. Carbon detailing ties it all in with the Manfrotto Italian heritage.
 
The Advanced collection covers six bag types, suitable for different situations and different amounts of equipment. Within each bag type, a variety of sizes and shapes accommodate common camera forms and equipment/accessory needs. The Advance collection includes shoulder bags, holsters, slings and three distinct styles of backpack suitable for gear only or a combination of gear and personal items.
 
Availability
Manfrotto Professional and Advanced camera bags are available now at Adorama.

"This is The-Digital-Picture.com's Weekend Recap for the week ending October 12th, 2013.
 
In the news...
 
On Monday, Zeiss introduced the Otus 55mm f/1.4 lens. Zeiss promises that this premium lens was designed without compromise, producing excellently sharp images free of color fringing and distortion. The Otus 55mm f/1.4 will hit the shelves at the end of this month for suggested retail price of $3,999.00.
 
Also on Monday, Canon announced their plans for a new Customer Support Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The 33,000 square-foot facility will house Support Specialists dedicated to small office and consumer imaging products including digital cameras, camcorders, and printers. The center will also support professional printing and cinema customers once operations begin in April of next year.
 
Canon also issued a Service Advisory on Monday for their LP-E6 rechargeable battery packs. The product advisory warns that in certain cases, an LP-E6 may fail to charge when inserted into the LC-E6 battery charger. If the LED blinks orange rapidly after inserting your LP-E6 battery, follow the steps on our post to reset the charger.
 
On Tuesday, Nikon announced an incremental update to their D600 DSLR camera – the D610. Compared to the D600, the D610 features a new shutter mechanism that allows for faster continuous shooting and a new quiet continuous mode. The D610 also features an improved white balance system. Check out our post for more details.
 
In site news and reviews...
 
On Monday, Bryan posted his full review of the Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro FX lens. In short, the lens performs quite well at 16mm – but gets moderately soft at the longer focal lengths. The lens features good build quality, but a somewhat quirky focus ring clutch for manual focusing. See Bryan’s full review for more details.
 
On Wednesday, Bryan posted his full review of the Tokina 17-35mm f/4 AT-X Pro FX lens. Bryan found the Tokina 17-35mm lens produced image quality slightly worse than its wider aperture cousin, the Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8 – but the f/4’s lower price, lower weight, and lower cost will certainly be enough to sway some consumer purchases. Check out Bryan’s full review for all the important details.
 
And, for our deal of the week…
 
On Wednesday, we posted a deal from BuyDig.com where you could get a Canon EOS 6D, PIXMA PRO-100 Printer, and Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements 11 for only $1,599.00 after a $400.00 mail-in rebate. That’s almost a $300.00 savings off of the normal 6D – without bundled accessories – price.
 
This has been the The-Digital-Picture.com’s Weekend Recap. Thanks for listening, and as always, happy shooting!"
