Lowepro unwrap new Toploaders

Press release:

Date: 29th May 2009

Lowepro’s new Toploader Pro AW Series.

Lowepro’s latest Toploader Pro AW Series is a great carrying solution for the pro who requires fast access, agility and flexibility from a camera bag.

With its asymmetrical shape, the Toploader Pro AW Series follows the line of a pro DSLR camera for a snug and protective fit. It also includes Lowepro’s unique 360° All Weather AW Cover™ that allows you to work out of the bag while protecting your gear.

This series is packed with useful features such as an inventive side opening that offers easy-grip access to capture a shot in a flash; U-shaped zipper pulls that are easy to grasp; plus extra pockets for accessories and small personal items. Lowepro’s exclusive SlipLock™ loops have been added to allow attachment of items and Lowepro’s quick-release buckle allowing the photographer to close the bag without zipping it, enables fast access plus security whilst on the move.

The Toploader Pro Series can be worn three ways to accommodate different working scenarios: holster-style over the shoulder with the 3-point shoulder harness; attached to Lowepro’s Street & Field™ belt system, or with our Topload Chest Harness (both sold separately).

There are three sizes to choose from in the series, 65 AW, 70 AW and 75 AW which are only available in black and can be purchased from all good stockists priced around £70.

Hasselblad H4D-60 review

UPDATE 18 May, 2012: Hasseblad is set to reduce the price on the H4D cameras by as much as $11,000 / 6,200 Euros on the H4D-60, bringing the price to 23,900 euros ($30,995 / £21,995). Please see here for more details.

The last couple of decades have been turbulent for medium format camera manufacturers, but now after several well-known names have withdrawn, the market looks healthy. Two new unexpected entrants, Leica and Pentax have added to the dynamic at opposing ends of the pricing scale, forcing the two established system players to compete fiercely in their traditional rarefied role as well as the entry-level.

Partnering with both Leaf and Mamiya, Phase One has developed a trio of entry-level Mamiya DM models starting at under $14k/ £9k while continuing to offer a wide range of Phase One and Leaf backs, up to 80-megapixels. Through various offers and incentives these backs, are most likely to be partnered with the 645DF body but they are in fact compatible with a wide range of …

Fujifilm IS Pro UV-IR DSLR review

Fuji’s IS Pro is the up-date to maker’s earlier S3 UV-IR camera, and like that particular camera, the IS Pro adopts a modified image sensor that’s not shielded from UV or IR light. Consequently, with various filtration methods, the IS Pro is designed for Ultraviolet (UVA), visible and near Infrared photography.

Although there is a healthy demand for DSLRs with IR capability especially, and there are number of independent vendors (mainly in the US, but the UK also) that offer IR dedicated and full-spectrum conversion of current Nikon and Canon bodies, it’s anticipated the IS Pro will appeal largely to the scientific and forensic communities. With the departure of the S3 UV-IR, Fuji’s IS Pro continues to be the only dedicated full-spectrum interchangeable lens based DSLR that has professional-level support from a camera maker. As well as official product support and 12-month warranty, for government agencies and the like, the OEM status of the IS Pro will be particularly reassuring an…

Unlike the process of dithering liquid ink in an inkjet, dye-sublimation printers produce authentic continuous tone images with an analogous look like that of a conventional lab-produced print. They achieve this using thin c…
