Press Release:

Created as an homage to classic photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Frank, Think Tank Photo has created five soft-sided shoulder bags in its new Retrospective series.  Designed for the professional photographer that wants to remain inconspicuous in any situation, the three shoulder bags’ and two lens changer bags’ retro look mixes Old-School with New-School that is a throwback to the days when bags where visually simple but highly functional.

The Retrospective series is made up of two styles:  three Retrospective Soft-sided Camera Shoulder Bags and two Retrospective Soft-sided Lens Changer Shoulder Bags.  Their soft and supple fabrics conform to the body and feature two color options:  Pinestone Cotton Canvas and Black Poly Spun Canvas.  And, as with all Think Tank Photo gear, they are filled with innovations for today’s professional photographer.

There are three models of Retrospective camera shoulder bags—the Retrospective 10, Retrospective 20, Retrospective 30.  Their features include:
  • Carries a pro size DSLR with zoom lens attached
  • Accommodates up to a 70-200 f2.8 lens (hood reversed)
  • Front pockets hold pro size camera bodies (without lenses attached)
  • Organizer pocket built into main compartment for pens, note pad, batteries, etc.
  • Seam sealed rain cover included for protection against the elements
  • Soft, adjustable shoulder strap with cushioned non-slip pad
  • Hook and Loop “Sound Silencers” on the front flap eliminate noise while opening the bag
  • Side pockets and side webbing loops carrying for additional accessories
  • Clear business card holder and removable carrying handle

  • Carries two or three lenses plus small accessories
  • Accommodates up to a 70-200 f2.8 lens (hood reversed)
  • Organizer built into rear pocket for pens, note pad, batteries, etc.

As camera bag designers and frontline photojournalists, we honor the role of reportage and its influence on photojournalism,” said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank Photo’s president and lead designer.  “We understand that photography is more than an assignment or a paycheck, but a way of life and an art form.  To quote Cartier-Bresson: To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.
