Think Tank Photo Retrospective 7 overview

  • 1Description

The black Retrospective 7 Shoulder Bag from Think Tank is a shooter's bag. With enough space for your standard DSLR with a 24-70mm f/2.8 attached and a 70-200mm f/2.8 by its side, you'll also have enough room left over for your flash and accessories. Plus, there's a rear pocket large enough for your 10" tablet or 11" MacBook Air. The internal dividers can be configured to accommodate the gear you need that day. Inside, there are two hook and loop nylon pockets that can hold a flash or similar sized item. Outside, under the main flap is another pocket that can hold an additional DSLR body or accessories.

The main flap is secured with hook and loop panels and all the zippers are durable YKK design.Think Tank's unique "Sound Silencers" - panels located under the main flap can be deployed to eliminate the "ripping" sound of the touch fasteners when you need to access the interior. This will come in handy when shooting in quiet venues such as court rooms, golf matches or public relations events.

For business cards, there's a clear interior pocket for extra cards or your ID. An interior zippered organizer pocket can hold your filters, cleaning cloths and other small accessories. Pens, maps and even more stuff can be kept within a second interior storage pocket.

Carrying the Retrospective 7 is easy with its adjustable canvas strap or removable top carry handle. The shoulder strap comes with a cushioned pad that can slid along the strap for optimum positioning. The strap is also supplied with patches of non-slip material to keep it stable while in use. For bad weather, the bag comes with a rain cover that covers the bag but exposes both the shoulder and carry strap.

The Retrospective has been designed to keep you fully equipped and unobtrusive while on the job or just out for a walk with the family. It has a classic design that is subtle, functional and backed by Think Tank's lifetime warranty against manufacturer's defects.

Perfectly suited for standard DSLR with a separate pocket for an iPad/11" MacBook Air
The exterior of each Retrospective shoulder bag is purposefully simple, allowing photographers to inconspicuously blend into their shooting environment
Allows you to attach some of Think Tank's optional Modular and Skin gear pouches to increase the capacity of the bag
The "sound silencers" underneath the main flap are used to suppress the loud tearing sound hook-and-loop makes while opening and closing 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
A fully adjustable, canvas strap is integrated into each Retrospective 7. 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
Removable carrying handle for convenience
The seam-sealed rain cover included with the Retrospective 7 was specially designed to keep the carrying handle and integrated shoulder strap outside the rain cover without compromising protection from the elements
Within the Retrospective's 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
Zippered organizer pocket inside the main compartment. It gives photographers enough space for small, but significant, accessories necessary for a successful shoot
A second interior pocket holds pens, maps, additional business cards and has a convenient hook and loop closure
Lift up the main flap to reveal a spacious exterior pocket. This pocket is large enough to carry a DSLR body or a number of other accessories
Hook-and-loop panels securely fastens the main flap down, keeping valuable photo equipment hidden from view
Removable divider set for custom layouts; high-quality YKK zippers

    Think Tank Photo Retrospective 7 reviews

    Retrospective 7 Shoulder Bag (Black) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 135.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Domke Bag for the Digital Age This bag is classy. I've gone back to shooting all primes and the Retrospective 7 fits all my gear, an ipad Air 2, and then some. I'm a small woman and always have issues finding a bag that accommodates my gear without being too heavy or too bulky which means I own about a million camera bags. My only complaint with this bag is there's not a latch on the front to make it more secure when using the velcro silencers. To remedy that to the best of my ability, I fold the flaps over the velcro about 3/4 down. That way, part of the velcro still sticks and provides security, but I'm not using the whole patch -which is extremely loud. Hence the 4 stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Retrospective 7 Shoulder Bag-by Think Tank What a great bag!!! I have a few bags but been using this one the most! I also have the smaller one-Retrospective 5. Both have lots of pockets, it's a light bag. And most importantly it does not look like a camera bag!!! Big plus for me! Retrospective 7 holds my FUJI X T1 plus two-three lenses. i pad, charger and plus! it's a great bag to travel with , great carry-on bag. The smaller one (5) I use it everyday for when I just want to take only my camera, a book to read, or maybe one lens. Everyday use is great- camera- water bottle- book to read. love this bag!!! Good design THINK TANK!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only bag I need now Like almost everyone, I've got (or had) an embarrassingly large collection of camera bags. This is now the only bag I use. First off, I like the shabby look that doesn't attract attention. It's surprisingly comfortable for a shoulder bag, even loaded with heavy gear. Lots of useful pockets and compartments. My thing is travel, and I've spent years wondering why nobody designed a camera bag that can hold more than just camera gear. What about water, books, maps, wallets, sunscreen, sunglasses, keys, snacks? Plus, at 6'-3, most backpacks are not properly proportioned, and they're hot. This thing does it all for me. Very well made, well designed, well thought out.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect I already own the Retrospective 20 bag and the reason I was interested in this bag is primarily because I could also fit my 11 macbook air along with my camera equipment. The bag is overall narrower than the 20 and slightly shorter but otherwise almost identical with the exception of the padded zippered sleeve at the back of it. It easily fit my Canon 5d Mark III (no grip), 70-200 2.8, 50 1.2 and 24-105 with plenty of room for additional cards, filters, etc. It's a great bag but I wish it was a bit lighter. It does look like it can withstand heavy usage but it's quite heavy at around 3 pounds. Overall like the bag very much. I hope Think tank will release the 20 with a laptop section at some point in the future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So relieved! I have had my share of camera bags in the past. This Retrospective 7 could very well be my last. That is unless Think Tank themselves revises it and makes it shockingly appealing which I believe would be hard to do. It's hardy but not heavy, functional but not gadgety, spacious but not bulky. I currently carry a pro body camera, speedlite, and two lenses and there's ample room for another lens or speedlite. The shoulder strap distributes the weight so that you forget you're carrying as much as you are, making street photography or the occasional photo walk tremendously easier. I don't like spending a bad penny so I'm so relieved after buying this bag since it meets and exceeds my expectations.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Goldilocks of Camera Bags Not to big, not to small, perfect size for traveling. Well constructed from durable but soft canvas. Shoulder strap is very comfortable and includes vinyl strips to prevent slippage. Lots of pockets including rear,well cushioned pocket which easily holds my Samsung 10.5 Galaxy Tab S tablet. The Velcro silencers are a great feature as is the separate carrying handle. Below is a picture illustrating the amount of equipment that easily fits in the bag and includes: Nikon D7100 body with Sigma 18-300mm lens attached, Sigma 8-16mm lens, Sigma 35mm f1.4 Art Lens, Nikon SB-800 Speed light, Samsung 10.5 tablet, SDHC card case, Polarizing filters. Overall a well designed, well made camera bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'd give it 10 Stars if I could I had the Retrospective 30 for my dslr gear but sold it when I went mirror less. I've just ordered the 7 because these are simply, imho, the very best camera bags out there, bar none. All Think Tank products are excellent but the Retrospective line is amazing. These are well thought out bags, hold WAY more than you'd expect, have good features and they look great. And not only that but the material wears like iron. Plus, when you are on the street or traveling they don't scream CAMERA!!! I've tried bags from a number of manufacturers but I've not found any that I like as much as Think Tank. This is the third one I currently own but it is the sixth I've bought.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best shoulder bag I ever had I have Fuji gear and recently purchased this bag for my vacation. The reason to buy it was I needed to bring my Fuji 100-400mm lens with me but none of my backpacks could accommodate it. So I was able to place my Fuji X-T2 with 18-135 attached,10-24mm,16mmf/1.4,100-400mm and Fuji X-E2S without lens. Then I placed 2 charges with numerous batteries into one of the outside compartments, remote control, little Fuji flash EF-20, bunch of memory cards, blower, lens cleaners. The bag now looks fat but still keeps it's shape and it's pretty much comfortable to lug it around. If you're in doubt - get it since it's still on sale, you wan't regret it.
