Multimedia is a conglomeration of different content forms and techniques to convey a story or an idea. With the advent of cameras that have the ability to capture not only still images but also record video and audio, professional photographers have an additional tool for the purpose of story-telling. The "Multimedia HDSLR" has created a new niche within the photography industry and Think Tank Photo is the first camera bag company to design and produce products that are specifically designed to support these types of cameras and the audio equipment that support them with the Multimedia Wired Up Bag Collection. Within this guide, we have compiled equipment that will enrich the power of story-telling and the photographer's desire to begin the journey into mutimedia.
