Think Tank Photo Announces New Sling-O-Matic Bags

ThinkTANK Photo announced today the Sling-O-Matic bag—”the photo industry’s first sling bag that can be easily switched back and forth to either shoulder.” The brand’s sling bags have long been popular with photographers, but it seems they have gotten a lot of feedback about the previous inability to switch shoulders, which results in back pain. They have addressed that issue with the Sling-O-Matic, which “with one smooth motion…can be quickly switched to the opposite shoulder.” The Sling-O-Matic comes in three sizes to fit the needs of different photographers: the Sling-O-Matic 10 can carry a pro-size DSLR and three to four lenses, including a 70-200 f2.8; the Sling-O-Matic 20 and Sling-O-Matic 30 can each carry a pro-size DSLR and four to six lenses, including a 70-200 f2.8; the Sling-O-Matic 30 also features a separate laptop compartment for carrying a 15.4” laptop. All bags will be available in early October. More from ThinkTANK Photo here.

It’s Wednesday afternoon and all that most people can think about is how many days, hours, minutes remain until the weekend. But not you, you’re a photographer! You’re never bored, but are always plotting your next photo shoot or researching the new D-SLR you’ve had your eye on. We’re right there with you, friend. To keep the wild world of photography on your mind midweek, here’s our roundup of what’s been happening in it lately.

- In honor of Veterans Day (or Remembrance or Armistice Day to some of you outside the U.S.), I have selected the above photo from The U.S. Army’s Flickr photostream, by Tech. Sgt. Roy Santana. It depicts U.S. Army Lt. Col, David Sigmund, greeting a young boy after passing out soccer balls to local children during exercise Flintlock 2007 in Bamako, Mali, Sept. 4, 2007. This photo offers a not often considered perspective of the breadth of work that our military men and women do as a means to foster relationships of peace, security and cooperation around the world.

- Thank Tank Photo has announced a new heavy duty shoulder camera bag. The Urban Disguise 70 Pro is designed for the photographer carrying two regular or pro size D-SLRs with lenses attached to each camera body – or even a 70-200 f2.8 lens attached to any camera body.

- Barbara Bordnick, the renown New York photographer whom, DP had the privilege of interviewing for the Spring 2009 issue, has a new calendar out called Floragraphics, which showcases more of her celebrated floral photographs.
