Manfrotto’s New Manhattan Lineup of Bags Target the NYC Photographer

Manfrotto just introduced a brand new lineup of camera bags called the Manfrotto Manhattan Collection. As the lifestyle imagery implies along with the name, the Manhattan collection targets the NYC based photographer who commutes using the subway system, bikes, etc. But that doesn’t mean those are the only photographers who may be attracted to it. In fact, photographers in Washington DC, Chicago, San Francisco, LA, and other cities like Berlin may be widening their eyes.

There are three bags in the lineup: The Manfrotto Manhattan Mover 50 backpack, Manfrotto Manhattan Speedy 10 Messenger Bag and the Manhattan Changer 20 Shoulder bag.

Of most interest could be the shoulder bag. The Manhattan Changer 20 Shoulder bag is, well, a shoulder bag. So its base configuration is a tote. But then it can be converted to work as a messenger bag in a US Military Map Case fashion or into a backpack.

Specs are below.
