New Products from thinkTankPhoto?

| March 7, 2012

I’m a photographer and I’m a lover of bags – that’s how I came to work with thinkTankPhoto! But as well as that, I love good gear… [read more after the pic]

..Gear that ‘just works’ and I love hearing about new gear and getting excited about products that people will love… Which leaves me in a bit of a quandary!

I know something YOU don’t know… oh la la!

And I can’t tell you ANYTHING about it… Keep watching! Ain’t I cruel!…

Meanwhile, back at the ranch!… 

Some things I’m loving at the moment, and I’d like your feedback on them, below!

The New Fuji X-Pro 1 – Is 4/3rds going places, are you a 4/3rds system user entirely? What do you think of this new camera from Fuji?… I think I want one… Hmm…

I’ve started using Nasty Clamps to keep my strobes in place, be that place the top of a door, half way up a tree or attached to my little boy’s toy truck (yes, really!) and even in the kitchen sink…  Who else is using these things? Very handy…

Nasty Clamps & Nasty Flags

Canon have made my 5DMKII ‘old’ ….but I still love it, though, many have expressed an urgent desire to upgrade to the 5DMKIII Immediately! Are you one of those? Start a conversation in the comments… And, Nikon, looking appealing… (despite a lens investment, obviously) Here is Vincent Laforet’s take on the whole thing

There’s also a great article on CNET Aus right now about Instagram making people better photographers – my take: I agree… Whilst you’re not shooting for an ad campaign (heck, you may be, soon #iPhone5) …it’s a great expression of creativity and a cool way to always be making images. What is your opinion? (everyone has one!) http://bit.ly/xTIAPZ

    Simon, you’re a tease now! Loved reading the post though.

    Looking forward to what gear you have in store Simon. I’m a big ThinkTank fan, although I only have one bag so far (a holster). As soon as my current travel bag wears out ThinkTank will be in the sites.

    5D Mark III – still trying to debate on whether to upgrade or not. There’s still a little L glass (primes) that I’d like to add to my bag and they may get prioritized over the new body.

    Fuji X Pro 1 – yeah, very nice cam. I’ve still got my eye on a Leica M9 though… I just have to rationalize the price – may be a few years yet.

    Are you going to give any hints on the size of the product you are hinting at?
