Dust and moisture resistant -- but only with FE lenses. What good is that? I bought into the NEX/alpha series for compact cameras and lenses.
Domke makes great bags but I wonder about this one. The price is way too high -- getting into Billington territory -- yet Domke now substitutes plastic clips and hardware for the metal parts they used to claim were critical to the function of the brand. ThinkTank, here I come.
So I wonder how much better this is than using a graduated neutral density filter in post processing...
The original Gura Gear Kiboko bag is the best bag I own (and I've got dozens). It replaced my LowePro Pro Trekker and several other backpacks and I've hiked miles with it full of gear. I only hope that the innovation that went into the GG bags is not lost.
Any idea when this will be available in the US? It has been listed as "New Item -- Coming Soon" for well over three months at B&H and Adorama. (It may be six months. Regardless, it has been so long I've lost track.)
CameraCarl: Now if only Sony can get their warranty repair act in order....
Considering the large and growing number of posts about frustrations with Sony USA repair issues, it is encouraging to find some users who didn't have a problem. Hopefully I will be as lucky if/when I need my Sony serviced. By the way, I've been using Canons since the 1970s and have sent cameras and lenses in for cleaning or repairs countless times. It has never taken more than 10 days door to door; once I dropped three lenses off for cleaning at the Canon Illinois facility and when I got home an email was waiting telling me they had been shipped.

Pardon me if this photo offends me, but isn't this reenactor depicting someone from the SS Totenkopf (Death Head) unit which was responsible for running concentration camps?

My problem was I had to use a .50 Cal with steel sights.

My GuraGear Kibuko rapidly became my favorite, go-to camera backpack. I hope they can bring some of that same design savvy to Tamrac whose bags have always seemed to be a third choice for my needs.
I wish we could disable this "feature." It appears the opinions about its worth are mixed, so allowing the user to decide would be nice.
Remarkable... somehow he got sensor dust on the cycle jumping photo and there was so much camera shake in the nighttime photo that I would have deleted it had I taken it myself.
Odd that I didn't see any iconic Ansel Adams or W. Eugene Smith photos in here..... What is next, the Wizard of Oz re-released in "beautiful" Black and White?
At least it wasn't in the US where they would have used shotguns or AK47s to try to shoot the balloons out of the sky.
Since 85% of my photos are of fast moving kids, birds, wildlife, airplanes and cars, well, I guess, I just named five reasons I use my DSLR every week. I wish I could make do with single focal length lens or an upscale point and shoot camera, but they aren't versatile enough for me. And I dislike relying on an LCD to frame my images especially in bright sunlight.
zos xavius: F*** THAT! This company does not have permission to print my work. If they do it will be their lawsuit!
Yet another reason I'm glad I didn't get swept up in all this Twitter/Facebook/Instagram stuff.
Once again, lots of new cameras but only two with viewfinders. My wife (who is not as serious a photographer as me) won't even consider using a camera that does not have a viewfinder. And after struggling with the Panasonic LX3 and Canon S100 in daylight and bright sun, I will never buy another camera that doesn't have one. I can't figure why the manufacturers do not realize this. Why do they think photos ought to be taken at arm's length?
iamphil: Did they really have to cut down hundreds of mature trees just to move this thing into place?
Planting a thousand saplings is not equivalent to chopping down 400 mature trees. Considering that dozens of equally viable museums wanted to get the shuttle you would think that someone would have taken the problem of the trees into consideration before giving it to the California museum. Sometimes apparently smart people can be pretty stupid.
CameraCarl: After buying six different backpacks, I bought the GuraGear Kiboko and it is the best camera bag I own. It holds everything I need on a major trip: 2 pro bodies, 500 f4, four other zoom lenses, hoods, two teleconverters, memory cards, rain covers, batteries, ball head, etc. It fits in US aircraft overhead storage bins including regional planes. The backpack is good enough for short hikes of less than a couple of miles. I've retired my LowePro Pro Trekker and sold several other bags. It is just as waterproof as all my other bags, which albeit don't have the special waterproof (and hard to operate) zippers a very few bags have. Two fellow photogs who have seen me use mine are now shopping for a Kiboko themselves. I do admit it is expensive, but considering that I carry well over $10,000 of gear in it and travel with it on some trips that cost many thousands of dollars, a few hundred dollars is a small investment.
I never strap my tripod to my bag. I have a Gitzo 3541XLS which would overwhelm any camera bag including my gigantic LowePro Pro Trekker. I simply carry my tripod in my hand or over my shoulder. I am a member of two camera clubs and have taken a dozen photo workshops out in the boonies. None of the dozens of photographers I know strap their tripods to their backpacks; every one carries theirs in their hands.
