What many don't realize is that the founders and designers of Think Tank Photo had some history with Lowepro, a company that started in the the backpack business and has one of the most extensive line of camera bags.

As a matter of fact i have a waist pack from Lowepro bought 15 yrs ago that was designed by these guys and gals that started Think tank and it's the best bag I've had period, to this day.

It has a small compactable daypack that can fit...yes..a 300 2.8 with a fullframe battery grip mounted camera to the lens. And..I can RUN and catch the metro with it. This is looking like the bag I've been waiting for to replace it. Love Think Tank...I think I'm gonna Love this one too!

JustSomeDude: I'd rather see someone partner with Osprey (or similar pack maker). Start with a proper backpack design (hint: it really is all in the hips!) and extend that design for camera gear, rather than trying to start with a camera bag morphed into a backpack.

I had my suspicions that the 1 series was a video camera-recorder in disguised. The success of the Sony RX100 has confirmed my belief in this. Can't wait to see that sensor in the 1 Series...V3 coming this summer to a theater near you

vFunct: These cameras scream for Instagram/Facebook/Twitter integration.

Quick snapshots, easy to use, no massive post-processing needed. No one cares about sensor quality anymore since, they're all good enough now.

If they added the Android integration, they could very well compete against the Cell phone cameras with something like this.

All we ask for is a camera with a small sensor, some decent interchangeable lenses, and Instagram integration.

In the professional world, quickest to publish wins!

BASICALLY, if you DO use social media, you ARE an amateur. You WILL be lost in an over-saturated sea of wallet size photos. That's IS up to you. A 1 second spot of Motion Snapshot is more useful than a social media still. Think animated GIF vs Icon. The fad will FADe with time and you'll end up wondering how a billion dollar was wasted by FB
