There is nothing like a good shot of street life, with a solid dose of humanity staring you in the face. Sometimes, though, you don’t really want to get all flashy and be swinging that big, shining camera and lens in everyone’s face.
Discretion is key on the street. For photographers, anyway.
So this week we have one of the best camera bags for the job: the ThinkTank Photo Urban Disguise 30.
Travel light, keeping the hardware hidden till you need it.
OK, some of the cool features: all black, never looks like a camera bag, holds a 70-200, and a wide angle lens, and a pro camera body with bottom grip (without lens attached). Or your DSLR without the bottom battery grip with a 70-200 attached. ready to rock and roll, and go stealth again. Shhhhh…
Plenty of pockets, inside and out for your extra media cards, business cards, batts, etc. Added bonus: there is a flap that will allow you to put this bag onto a roller bag if you so desire.
And when I travel, I do.
The founder of ThinkTank, Doug Murdoch, asked us to pass along this white paper on camera bags also. Kind of explains why we all have so many bags, in a good way. Great stuff from one heck of a camera bag designer.
Oh, and on that stealth part, wearing a photo vest with this bag probably is not a good idea. Just a tip. Travel light.
Details on getting this sent to your home, ANYWHERE in the World, will be in the NEWSLETTER this week, coming your way @ 9:00AM PST, Weds. Dec.10,2009. Just make sure you are signed up by Tuesday to be part of this free giveaway.
This company makes such good stealth gear, taxi drivers always think they are picking up a fare to the airport when I use the Airporter International.
They are not happy when I tell them I’m just going midtown.
It’s a good thing, trust me.
