After a long collaboration between veteran camera bag designer Lily Fisher and Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Deanne Fitzmaurice, Think Tank Photo is adding their first line of camera bags designed for women. The new Lily Deanne shoulder bags marry function and style.
There are serious camera bags designed for fast access to professional cameras and lenses via a large zipper opening. Using rare-earth magnetic on the main and front pockets, prevents damage to delicate clothing while opening the bag without a sound.
There are 3 bags in the Lily Deanne lineup:
