Tenba Unveils the World's First Packable, Self-Stowing Camera Bag

Packlite is an intuitive and compact camera bag that adjusts to any situation

North White Plains, NY – May 12, 2015 – Tenba is announcing the national launch of Packlite Travel Bags, the world's first packable, self-stowing camera bag. Packlite bags can be easily stored inside larger camera bags, backpacks and rolling cases, or utilized separately when a smaller bag is desired. Photographers and filmmakers can now have a versatile pack which can adjust to any situation.

"Every photographer and filmmaker has been there; you're carrying two cameras and six lenses in a large bag, and you wonder, 'How can I dump most of this and just carry a camera with two lenses?" says Peter Waisnor, Vice President of Tenba. "Packlite Travel Bags give you that option, without taking up any space or adding weight to your larger bag."

Packlite bags provide an innovative solution to carrying large camera systems by providing a compact bag that can easily be pulled out separately. With four sizes to choose from, Packlite bags can carry a wide range of items. From the smallest mirrorless camera systems in the Packlite 7, to a pro body with a 70-200mm f/2.8 in the Packlite 13, these bags provide an easy solution for any need. In addition, each bag fits a corresponding Tenba BYOB padded camera insert to provide necessary protection as well as dividing pockets.

Packlite bags are built with durable, water-repellent silicone-coated ripstop nylon, strong enough to withstand any outdoor adventure. The bags also feature a quick access YKK® zipper, reinforced stitching and a mesh side pocket for a water bottle. If not in use, the bag can be packed up entirely into the side pocket to be stowed away or clipped to the outside of a larger bag.

lowepro echelon series

March 2, 2015  Lowepro, the leading maker of photography carrying solutions, today announced the Echelon series, the company's first high-end collection of photography bags designed for the fashionable, discerning professional who has perfected his or her craft. The limited edition, three-piece Echelon series includes a roller, attache and laptop brief with high-end features such as custom-cast metal hardware and saddle-stitched, premium leather handles, expressing refined sensibility. The collection is now available exclusively online for purchase at http://www.lowepro.com inthe United States.

"We have designed bags for all types of image makers for the last 48 years. With the Echelon series, we challenged our design team to dream up the ultimate expression of crafted luxury and protection," said Tim Grimmer, vice president of brand and product at Lowepro. "Our team worked directly with professional photographers, including Loweprofessional Blair Bunting, to create this collection. Blair's professional experience, appreciation for well-designed aesthetics and overall lifestyle aligned perfectly with the series, offering an invaluable resource for input and feedback throughout the design process."

Each piece of fine luggage from the Echelon series is wrapped in 840 denier black nylon fabric and comes with precision-engineered YKK RC-Fuse locking zippers and TSA-approved locks, plus a removable, black All Weather AW Cover™ for protection from the elements. The bags feature accessory pockets and removable organization panels trusted to keep valuables and essential items organized and secure.

The Echelon Roller's high-impact-resistant molded interior construction protects valuable gear from shock and vibration. Its special-edition MaxFit System™ and highly engineered trolley with encased wheel build maximize volume, fitting up to two professional DSLRs, six to eight lenses (up to 300mm), flash and lighting gear, a 15-inch laptop and additional accessories.

Also featuring the MaxFit System, the Echelon Attache can hold a professional DSLR, two to three lenses (up to 70-200 f/2.8), flash, a 13-inch laptop and necessary accessories. The attache opens wide, similar to a classic doctor's satchel, offering smooth and swift access to equipment. It includes a discreet trolley pass-through, enabling the bag to be secured atop a roller bag for convenience while traveling.

The Echelon Brief offers a molded interior construction for protection as well as a trolley pass-through for travel ease. Able to fit a 15-inch laptop, pen tablet, portable hard drives and other business essentials, the brief also includes a memory card holder to keep a reader within easy reach.
