A House for Your Mirrorless System

Th holiday season is fast approaching, so now is the time to start shopping for your friends and family, (or dropping hints to them about gifts you want to receive). If you or someone you know has a compact mirrorless camera like the popular Sony NEX, Olympus PEN, or Fujifilm X-Series cameras, why not get a camera bag to go with it? Here are a few bags that not only look great, but also offer protection and function.

Camera Bag Gift Ideas

New camera messenger and shoulder bags from Tenba, Think Tank, Domke, Ruggard, and Crumpler make thoughtful and practical holiday gifts for your favorite photographer or photo enthusiast. The bags present a variety of specialty features, some of which include silent touch-fasteners, quick-access top zippers, expanding compartments, and more.

Belt Systems for Camera Slingers

When it comes to carrying your gear through a fast-paced, day-long event, there’s certainly no shortage of options. Backpacks and shoulder bags have long been the professional event photographer’s staple when they need to keep everything close at hand.

Transporting Equipment in Comfort

Wedding photographers carry a lot of gear. Multiple lenses, camera bodies, flashes and accessories are all part of the wedding professional’s kit. It‘s cumbersome (and risky) to try to balance the heft and awkward bulk of your equipment without the right carrying case.

Essential Gear for Savvy Wedding Pros

Wedding photography has become an extremely popular and lucrative specialty. First and foremost, a wedding is a grand, unrepeatable, emotionally charged event at which expectations run high, and second best won't do. Being a wedding photographer requires dedication and talent, but having the right equipment is crucial.

Video Gear

Wedding videography, like event videography in general, is an art form in full bloom. Relatively recent advances in video technology have arguably raised the wedding video's potential to equal that of still photography. To be fair, perhaps the burgeoning popularity of Internet videos is equally responsible for the medium's newfound stature.
