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 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.
The popular Shape Shifter from Think Tank has had an upgrade to version 2.0. The magic behind the Shape Shifter is in the fact it can be compressed down by 3 inches when the gear is removed making it a highly versatile travel companion. The Shape Shifter comes in two sizes (15 or 17) and can be carried by the handle or worn with the generously padded, contoured shoulder harness, with air channel (to avoid that sweat patch), sternum strap and removable waist belt.
For those into their wildlife photography (and even those who aren’t), you might recognise the name Moose Peterson as one of America’s best-known wildlife photographers. Peterson has been published in over 130 magazines worldwide, so it only seems fitting that the designers at MindShift (a Think Tank Company) collaborated with him to create the ultimate camera bag. Now, they have collaborated again to re-visit and improve the original model.
