Retrospective™ Soft-sided Camera and Lens Shoulder Bags Released

5/14/2010

Created as an homage to classic photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Frank, we have created five soft-sided shoulder bags in our new Retrospective™ series.  Designed for the professional photographer that wants to remain inconspicuous in any situation, the three shoulder bags’ and two lens changer bags’ retro look mixes "Old-School" with "New-School" that is a throwback to the days when bags where visually simple but highly functional. 


The Retrospective series is made up of two styles:  three Retrospective Soft-sided Camera Shoulder Bags and two Retrospective Soft-sided Lens Changer Shoulder Bags.  Their soft and supple fabrics conform to the body and feature two color options:  Pinestone Cotton Canvas and Black Poly Spun Canvas.  And, as with all Think Tank Photo gear, they are filled with innovations for today’s professional photographer.


There are three models of  Retrospective Camera Shoulder Bags—the Retrospective 10, Retrospective 20, Retrospective 30.  Their features include:

•   Carry a pro size DSLR with zoom lens attached

“As camera bag designers and frontline photojournalists, we honor the role of reportage and its influence on photojournalism,” said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank Photo’s president and lead designer.  “We understand that photography is more than an assignment or a paycheck, but a way of life and an art form.  To quote Cartier-Bresson: ‘To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.’”
