For the people that love their roller bags, Think Tank’s new Logistics Manager 30 is designed with what they’re called, “endless interior layout options.” Its dimensions are 13.75”W x 27.5”H x 8.25 – 10”D: which means that there is really a heck of a lot of space in there. The bag is being billed to not only hold a camera and lenses, but also lighting and accessories. This is one of the first bags where we’ve heard that lighting can be inserted with no issues. Speedlites we can understand, but monolights? From the looks of it, it seems like the Logistics Manager 30 might be the big bag that could.
Despite the bags enormous size, it still remains to be TSA-approved for travel. It includes a roller hangle, side pockets, organizer pockets, a tripod cup, rain cover, front organizer pocket, and accessory bags built in.
And the price? You’ll be losing a cool $499 for all this storage space. The bag is available now at Amazon.
Think Tank previously had the Retrospective 7 designed for mirrorless camera lovers, but now they’re showing off a brand new line designed specifically for that crowd: the Mirrorless Mover. Available in a 5, 10, 20, and 30i series,the bags are designed for different sizes of mirrorless cameras moving from the Nikon 1 series all the way up to Leica Ms accordingly. As for prices, they’ll range from the mid $30-$70 range.
Besides dividers (which are very close to the Retrospective series in design) the bags sport a Flip-Top style lid with magnetic closure, a rear slot for your belt and to therefore prevent theft, side pockets, mesh pockets, and is made from ballistic nylon. It also includes a rain cover. It’s quite interesting that the company has chosen not to make the bags from canvas.
They aren’t available yet, but then they launch we’ll be sure to have them in for review.
Think Tank just recently launched a new line of bags called the Sub Urban Disguise which is designed to be a very small option for carrying either mirrorless / compact systems or a regular sized DSLR with 1-2 lenses. I’ve had the bag for a few weeks now, and I feel that I understand it well enough to share my thoughts. Head on past the break for my review of the Think Tank Sub Urban Disguise 10.

Think Tank is in the news today with three new accessories for your camera bag. The Low Rider Strap attaches a secondary bag to your rolling luggage which looks like it could come in handy if you are a professional photographer who travels a lot. The Pro DSLR Battery Holder does exactly as its name says; it holds two full-sized battery packs for either the Canon 1D or Nikon D3/D4 series cameras. Lastly, the Limited Edition Pixel Pocket Rocket is Think Tank’s CF and QXD memory card holder that was manufactured in just one production run and will be permanently unavailable once stock runs out.
Detailed photos and additional info have been included after the break.

If you have been a photographer for some time then, like me, you also have a collection of memory card misfits. Newer cameras require more space (both in terms of hard drives and memory cards) and in turn require us to buy fresh cards. Yet, the old ones aren’t done fighting. On my D800 a 4GB card now seems like a 36 exposure roll of film but in a pinch these cards could provide valuable space.
With a mix of 14 SD and CF cards, my old method of storing cards was becoming reckless so I decided to see if the Think Tank Pixel Pocket Rocket would fill the role of memory carrier and protector. [click to continue…]
It is a shoulder bag that does not scream ‘camera bag’. I have been considering a proper shoulder camera bag for some time now. My fellow team members suggested I should look at Think Tank. They were tired of my backpacks getting in the way at events. I haven’t been particularly impressed with any shoulder bags to date. The Think Tank Urban Disguise 60 V2.0, however, caught my eye. I needed something that could carry a decent amount of gear and supplies. I also needed something to take to work while disguised as my alter ego, a not too mild-mannered computer geek. The Think Tank Urban Disguise 60 V2.0 looked as if it could fit the bill. To break the bag in, I took it out on a task for our site in New York City as well as to my day job in Jersey.
