As mirrorless cameras penetrate the market and reach more and more common use by professionals, Think Tank Photo is continuing their support of this new form-factor. They unveiled an entire series of mirrorless backpacks and a new smaller holster for such smaller cameras.
The Digital Holster 5 is a single-camera bag which is worn over the shoulder or attached to a belt. It is the smallest holster and can accommodate a mirorless camera with a standard zoom lens attached. This allows quick access to gear while it remains visible to the wearer at all times. Like all holster-type bags, it provides top-access with a single zipper to open.
This new holster measures 6.3″ x 6.3″ x 4.5″ externally with an interior size of 5.1″ x 5.3″ x 3.5″ which fits something like an Olympus OM-D E-M5 with 12-50mm F/3.5-6.3 lens or a Fuji X-E2 with 18-55mm F/2.8-4. The Digital Holster 5 will be available shortly from the Think Tank website for around of $40.
Think Tank Perception bags are a new series of photo backpacks designed for use with mirrorless cameras. There are 3 different sizes, each available in 2 colors. These ultra-light day-packs offer multiple compartment to carry a mirrorless system, accessories, plus a tablet and even a laptop for the larger model.
The smallest, called Perception Tablet, fits a mirrorless camera with one or two lenses, plus a small 7″ tablet. There is an intermediate size, the Perception 15, which allows for 2 somewhat larger lenses and a large 10″ tablet instead. The Perception Pro is the flagship with, unusually, two computing compartments. One fits a 15″ laptop, while the other fits a 10″ tablet. It allows for up to four lenses, including one attached to the camera.
All the Perception series will be available shortly from Think Tank. They will be priced from $90 to $150, depending on the size.
