The Camera Bag: Think Tank Photo unveils new bag collection for mirrorless cameras
posted Friday, May 10, 2013 at 1:40 PM EDT
Think Tank Photo's timing couldn't be better for the launch of its latest camera bag collection. The California-based company just unveiled its new Mirrorless Mover line of bags, designed specifically for small, mirrorless-style digital cameras. The announcement comes on the same day as Olympus took the wraps off its new E-P5 PEN mirrorless camera.
Coincidence? Perhaps, but it does show that there are plenty of small, interchangeable lens cameras out there now to stuff into Think Tank's latest bags. The four-bag collection ranges in size from the Mirrorless Mover 5, which can fit a small size mirrorless body with a small telephoto or pancake lens attached; up to the Mirrorless Mover 30i, which can fit one medium to large size mirrorless body along with two to four lenses and a tablet computer.
Some of the noteworthy new features of these bags include the following: YKK zippers; metal buckles and snaps; new magnetic closures; multi-purpose divider with a smart phone slot and two SD card slots (excluding the smallest size bag); made from durable, poly-ballistic fabric; seam-sealed rain cover stashed in front pocket; stetchable side pockets and interior mesh pocket on the lid for batteries or accessories.
Here Think Tank's full breakdown of its Mirroless Mover bag line along with pricing.
