rjx: Think Tank makes GREAT quality bags!!

Try anything by LowPro (mass produced bags loved by many). And then try something from Think Tank and you'll see and feel the quality differences. The kicker is, TT bags are not much more than the similar LowPro versions, yet the quality and durability is MUCH BETTER.

I'm looking forward to the CityWalker, but imo the colored stripes got to go. lol.

BTW, I use an Urban Disguise 35 and StreetWalker Pro backpack. The streetwalker's have tripod straps so you can carry your tripods. I always carry the Manfrotto 055XPROB + Manfrotto 498RC2 hanging off the backpack on LONG bike rides with NO problems at all.

I guess i'm a fanboy. Great bags for the price.

I agree with you 100%! I have 2 of their bags (Airport TakeOff) and Shape Shifter. Love both! My TakeOff is almost 4 years old and it's still as good as new, despite numerous trips here and there.

I absolutely LOVE Think Tank bags. The quality just simply blows away the competition. I am excited about the Airport Navigator, but hope that I can get American Eagle (in particular) to stop taking my gear from me at the gate!

On Fujifilm X-E1 Preview preview (410 comments in total)

To those that are already using the X-Pro1 or X100, can you tell me the type of shooting you typically do with them? I'm a Canon shooter (1D and 5D), and I own a Panasonic GX1, but I fell so in love with the size and capability of the GX1 that I am seriously considering the X-E1 as my camera of choice, going forward (and getting rid of the GX1, at a minimum). Thoughts from the Fuji camp?

On Canon EOS 5D Mark III preview (901 comments in total)

I am happy that Canon took an awesome camera overall (5D Mark II) and improved the AF, which was probably the worst feature of the Mark II. I look forward to seeing what it can do. I know that it will deliver!

On Lensbaby Edge 80 Quick Review article (75 comments in total)

I am definitely getting one! I have one of the original Lensbabies, and even though I didn't use it much, I loved the times when I did.
