October 2016: Manfrotto, world leader in the photography, imaging equipment and accessories industry, presents the new Advanced & Street selection – for amateur and advanced hobbyist photographers looking for practical, comfortable and secure carrying solutions for their Compact System Cameras (mirrorless cameras), lenses, accessories and personal items.
In tune with the key photography trends, Manfrotto has rolled out a range of five new models to enhance the CSC photography experience. The selection comprises bags from the Advanced and Street Collections specifically developed for a dynamic approach to photography.
Merging Quality with Aesthetics
Manfrotto’s new CSC bag selection is built of high-quality materials to be functional, durable, rugged and lightweight. The detailing and aesthetic impact, in both the technical Advanced range and the colourful, fashionable Street range – perfectly embody Manfrotto’s Italian heritage.
In the Advanced Compact 1 backpack and Street CSC backpack, interior space is flexibly arranged and camera equipment safeguarded by the removable Manfrotto Camera Protection System insert - right at the heart of the pack. They are designed to carry a CSC or a compact DSLR, 3 lenses, accessories and a 12.9” iPad pro in a padded compartment. When it’s time to shoot, the pack is moved forward and the top flap lifts away from the body, revealing a discrete zippered compartment for valuables and making it easy to quickly extract photo gear.
The packs also feature exterior tripod attachments, padded back panels, adjustable shoulder straps, a quick access zipper at the back and a water bottle compartment.
On a day off, they also convert to a regular daypack.
The Street CSC Messenger is a multifunctional, everyday carrying solution featuring protective dividers for a CSC or compact DSLR plus 3 lenses (up to 70-200). It accommodates personal gear according to lifestyle preferences, features a dedicated compartment for a 9.7” iPad pro and plenty of easily accessible, zippered/non-zippered pockets for accessories. The adjustable padded shoulder strap keeps it comfortable, even at the end of a day’s photography.
Perfect for photographers who like traveling light, the Advanced Compact 1 Shoulder Bag and Street CSC Shoulder Bags securely carry a CSC camera with two lenses and essential personal items. They feature adjustable padded shoulder straps and back carry handles for a comfortable transportation and a frontal opening for easy access to contents.
Whether they’re carrying a SONY A7 with 24-70 & 10-18, Fujifilm X-T1 or 2 with 18-55 & 55-200 or Olympus E-M1 with 12-40 & 7-14, Manfrotto’s new CSC bags are always ready for action.
All models feature zipper covers designed to stay close to the body, making it hard for anyone other than the user to open them. The two Advanced bags come with a rain cover that creates a barrier between the wet outside and equipment inside the bag in tough weather.
The Advanced and Street CSC range is available from £39.95.
