Think Tank Photo Retrospective 5 Overview

The black Retrospective 5 Shoulder Bag from Think Tank is a small, discreet and simple bag designed for the photographer who carries a small system (e.g. one DSLR and 1-3 lenses). If you own a micro 4/3 system or a rangefinder, this is a bag worth considering. A zippered, inner pocket can accommodate an up to an 8" tablet. The interior dividers are customizable to accommodate the gear you carry on any given day.

The large front flap covers the entire bag and prevents anyone from seeing what's inside. The hook-and-loop closure is unique with its Sound Silencer system that eliminates the tearing sound normally encountered when you open a camera bag. This is especially valuable when you are shooting in quiet venues like courts, wedding services or chess matches.

The inside of the bag contains an organizer pocket that is perfect for a notepad, mic, or small pack of tissues. Two collapsible interior nylon pockets are designed to hold a flash or other similar sized accessory.

Outside, an expandable pocket is large enough for a regular sized DSLR body. The back of the bag has a wide storage pocket that is made to hold collateral material like paperwork, maps or notepads. Additional webbing loops are found outside to hold some small Modular, Skin or Multimedia pouches. Or, you can attach a carabiner to it for quick access items like keys. Two side pockets will hold small water bottles or even some small shoe-mount strobe lights. Under the main flap there is a business card holder.

The carry handle is removable and the shoulder strap contains non-slip material to keep the bag stable while moving. There's also a breathable cushioned pad along the strap to aid in positioning.

For complete protection, there's a neat rain cover that can be rapidly deployed when the weather turns sour. The cover has been configured to allow the handle and strap to extend but not interfere with the security of your gear. The Retrospective is backed by Think Tank's lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects.

The exterior of each Retrospective shoulder bag is purposefully simple, allowing photographers to inconspicuously blend into their shooting environment
The Retrospective 5 fits a standard sized DSLR kit. A compact kit of prime or small zoom lenses fits easily with one lens attached to the camera body
The Retrospective 5 easily accommodates a Micro Four Thirds camera system with 3-6 lenses and accessories
The "Sound Silencers" underneath the main flap eliminate the loud tearing sound hook-and-loop makes while opening the bag. Simply release the Sound Silencer panels and cover the hook-and-loop strips to prevent the hook-and-loop from contacting
A clear business card pocket, for identification and spare cards, is located under the main flap
Hook-and-loop panels securely fastens the main flap down keeping valuable photo equipment hidden from view
An organizer pocket is located inside the main compartment. It gives photographers enough space for small, but significant, accessories necessary for a successful shoot
All of the dividers inside the bag are removable so the interior can be customized to any photographer's set of gear
Inside the main compartment are two collapsible nylon pockets (one on each side). These pockets are tall enough to fit most flash units or other accessories. A hook-and-loop strap can be used to secure the contents or it can be tucked into the pocket for quicker access
An expandable pocket on the front of the Retrospective 5 can be used to carry a regular sized DSLR body
A wide storage pocket is located on the back of the Retrospective 5. This pocket can be used to carry small maps, booklets or other paperwork
Removable carrying handle
A fully adjustable, canvas strap is integrated into the bag. For extra comfort, a breathable cushioned pad slides along the strap for optimum positioning. Sections of non-slip material on the pad helps keep the entire strap on your shoulder
Webbing loops on both sides of the Retrospective 5 can be used to carry small Modular, Skin or Multimedia pouches. Alternatively, a carabiner (not included) can be used to quickly clip accessories to the sides of the bag.
Side pockets on both sides can be used to carry smaller water bottles and will even fit some shoe-mounted strobe units
The included seam-sealed rain cover was specially designed to keep the carrying handle and integrated shoulder strap outside the rain cover without compromising protection from the elements

question

I have an Olympus Pen F with a grip, 45mm and a 17 mm lenses. I assume these will fit or should I get the larger Retro. 7?
Asked by: Anonymous
Should fit that kit with room to spare. To compare I just dropped in my EM1-M2 with the 7-14mm + the 17mm & 45mm and there was room for other small bits (wallet, phone, extra battery)

question

What is the height of this bag? Would I be able to have an Olymp EM5, a 12-40 pro and the 40-150 pro in it? i.e. will the 40-150 be able to stand up in it?
Asked by: Lucie
I think it will be too small, they may fit, but they will be very tight. Look at the Retrospective 7 , same bag, just bigger. I love my Think Tank bag. Well made, and looks good without attracting too much attention. I don't think you will go wrong with any of their bags. Just check the interior dimensions, under specifications, to make sure you have enough room.
