PMA 2010: Think Tank’s New Products are ‘Retrospective’ and more

There’s no school like old school, Think Tank Photo’s newest line of bags says. Today, Think Tank announced and showed off two new soft-sided camera and lens shoulder bags in the Retrospective line have a touch of class and color.

As usual, these three new Think Tank bags are inconspicuous shoulder bags, much like the Urban Disguise, but are much more flexible and conform to the wearer’s side. Previously, Think Tank bags only come in flat black, but these new bags come in both black and Pinestone cotton canvas pictured here:

The Retrospective line comes in two styles: shoulder bags (Retrospective 10, 20, and 30) and lens changer bags (Lens Changer 2 and 3).

These bags have a great look and feel; they might rival Domke’s classic satchel line, though they are a bit more pricey. The material on the Pinestone has a really rich, durable fabric texture.

The smallest, the Retrospective 10, will run for about $149, and the largest Retrospective 30 will be about $179. The lens changers range from $99-$119.

On top of the standard Think Tank features, one notable new feature on these bags is the “Sound Silencer,” which is essentially flaps that are placed over the velcro fasteners leaving the option to either use loud velcro or switch to a hook and loop fastener for quieter situations.

Also, the bottom padding of the bags have a slit which allows the bag to be very flexible when hanging on the shoulder and it conforms quite nicely to the wearer’s side.

Think Tank has not announced an official release date for these bags, but they say they should be available sometime this year.

Some of the other Think Tank Photo products are pretty exciting for pro photographers who need to lug heavy gear or shoot in extreme weather:

The Hydrophobia 70-200 rain cover provides elemental protection for cameras coupled with 70-200mm lenses and smaller. Unlike a lot of rain covers, this one has its own camera strap, while the camera’s regular strap can be tucked inside the cover. Also, the rain cover has arm holes on the sides, so photogs can reach inside to access the camera body without getting anything wet.

Think Tank also showcased the Logistics Manager, which is a massive rolling case for travelling pros with a lot of lighting and camera gear:

Streetwalker Backpack Winner

streetwalker

Wow… I’m pretty surprised at how popular this past week’s Streetwalker giveaway was. Over this past week we received 510 entries, with 230 comments and 280 tweets. To put that into perspective, the most responses for a giveaway prior to this one was 191 (when we gave away two Photomatix licenses).

To pick a winner, I assign each entry with a number, and use random.org to randomly select one entry. Using this method, we found the winner of a Streetwalker backpack to be:

#144: Kerry (birchblazephotography.com)

I think it would be amazing to photograph the Country of Bhutan, it’s supposed to be one of the happiest in the world, and it’s very beautiful as well!

Congratulations Kerry! I hope you enjoy your new camera backpack.

Thanks to everyone who participated in this week’s giveaway. Be sure to check back again soon, as we have some pretty awesome stuff lined up to be given away…

I also really enjoyed reading all of your responses. Here are some of them:

dahak_z:

Well, not so down to Earth speaking, in the broader sense of the word ‘world’, I’d really go and photograph the Universe, if one could only explore it. Think of all the nebulas, alien planets, and other unseen phenomena. Could result in quite some awesome photos.

On a more down to Earth tone, i’d make a one year (or more years, however long it takes), of all the world’s national parks. That could also result in quite some awesome photographs.

Cheers

Martin (time2shoot.com):

It might sound strange for some, but I wish I could capture the life of the people of North Korea and show the world how life is over there.

4strinbass (@4strinbass):

My dream place to photograph would be the ocean floor of the Atlantic Ocean, want to get nite style shots of glowing fish

simonhucko (@simonhucko):

how about anywhere over the earth? i’d love to go up to the ISS with a camera

Update on August 13th, 2009 at 11:42 PST: Don’t worry if your tweet entry doesn’t show up in the reactions list below the comments. I wrote a script that automatically collects every tweet submission neatly into a table, weeding out multiple tweets and such. Just make sure the URL we gave (http://bit.ly/ppsw) appears somewhere in the tweet. This is what we search for to collect the entries. If you included it, we got your entry.
