Airport Roller Derby
ThinkTank Photo
Price: $389.75

open case

There are several rolling suitcase-like camera packs on the market, but I’ve yet to see one that can match the Airport Roller Derby for smoothness and durability. The pack is slim enough to roll through the aisle in an airplane and will easily fit into most overhead compartments. Unlike a similar ThinkTank product I reviewed about 18 months ago, this one comes with four dual wheel sets instead of single wheels. These wheels are so responsive you can move this pack, fully loaded, with one finger.

UltraLight Camera Cover
Mindshift Gear
Price: $29.99

Negri Mindshift

The UltraLight Camera Cover is a waist pack perfectly designed for carrying a Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera and lens. Use it on a day hike or any time you’re wandering around outdoors. It’s simple to use, reasonably priced, and will protect your camera from the elements. I wish I’d had it with me on a recent trip to Oregon when it rained seven out of nine days.

THULE PHOTO 1 NEGRI

The Thule Perspektiv Messenger Bag is a tote suitable for your daily commute or a weekend overnighter. Persketiv becomes more than a mere tote or duffle when you unzip its cover and realize there’s a well-padded removable compartment inside that can accommodate a Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera with a 70-200mm lens and battery grip attached. In addition, there’s a separate padded compartment for a 15-inch MacBook Pro, as well as an abundance of small zippered compartments suitable for SD cards, extra batteries, filters, and other small objects.

Garry Fong Puffer – Pop-Up Flash Diffuser
Review

On December 31, 2011, in Review, by Steve Hammond

Garry Fong Puffer – Pop-Up Flash Diffuser
Company: Gary Fong
Price: $24.99 US

Everyone buying an entry to mid range DSLR with an integrated pop-up flash rapidly learns they are not so great. Like many flashes on compact cameras, they point directly to your subject and are not adjustable. They also tend to blast the subject directly, making it look overexposed.

Whither Thou Tablet?

On April 20, 2011, in Apple, iPad, Opinion, Tablet, by Scott Willsey

 

It’s no secret that I like Apple products. The only computers in our house are Macs, my wife and I both have iPhones, and I was in line to buy an iPad 2 the day it was released.

I don’t consider myself an unthinking Apple fanboy, however. Sometimes Apple products have problems. Sometimes Apple wants to protect me more than I want them to. And I will admit, as much as I love my iPad now, when I first tried my Dad’s original iPad, I was slightly underwhelmed. I didn’t need one right away.
