When travelling with fragile and expensive equipment, you want to provide the best possible protection, but at the same time, you need to be able to move quickly and easily whilst on the move. The Peli Protector Case 1615 is a super lightweight polymer case weighing in at 6.4kg when empty (without foam). The 1615 boasts the title of the lightest premium Protector case on the planet with an interior size of 29.59" x 15.50" x 9.38" (75.2 x 39.4 x 23.8 cm), the maximum airline check-in size, but always check with your airline for exact measurement requirements.
The Flir One is a clever little gadget that turns your Android or IOS device into a thermal infrared camera. The Flir One actually uses two cameras to capture two images before the MSX Technology merges them together to create one detailed image with thermal information, the Lepton™ camera, the most compact long-wave infrared sensor available, takes a thermal reading and the standard camera provides the physical detail in the image.
Think Tank Photo was born in 2005 and have been producing professional style camera bags ever since - designed by photographers who know what you need when out in the field (literally and figuratively speaking). The Retrospective 7 is a good looking bag, in pinewood (that’s khaki between you and me) coloured sand-washed 100% cotton canvas, it has been treated with a water-repellent coating that makes any drizzle you may encounter bead off without soaking into the bag.
Have you ever been editing a photograph you have been particularly proud of, thoughts of where you will put a National Geographic award and who to thank in your acceptance speech floating around your head only to have your dreams dashed when you print out an image that looks nothing like it did on the screen, colours harsher, image darker whatever the issue it’s a frustrating problem that can easily be avoided with a tool like the Spyder5Elite.
The Escape HD5W is a waterproof HD action camera which aims to give you high quality images at a reasonable price, it offers up to 12 mega pixel photos, 1080p/30fps or 720p/60fps HD Video recording, built in Wi-Fi and a 2” LCD display screen that can all be safely tucked away in a protective waterproof case suitable for depths up to 30metres.
The Tamrac G Elite 32 Bag continues to use the innovative butterfly opening system and is available in two sizes, 26 or 32. We will be taking a closer look at the 32 today, the bigger of the two bags with an interior size of 33 x 51 x 18 cm, so spacious it made my gear look a little insubstantial (two DSLR bodies 4 lenses, tripod, flash and battery pack). Tamrac say that the 32 will actually fit tablets and laptops up to 15" and Lenses up to 18" (35.56 cm) and with such space it’s easy to see how, but it doesn’t stop there.
