Think Tank Photo today released three new or completely upgraded rolling bags that provide more protection and security for transporting heavy and expensive photography gear.
All three rollers feature advanced security features, such as front and back cable locks, a TSA lock, and the Security Plate “Lost and Found” service.
* Airport Security V2.0 — This large roller, which is renowned for its ability to hold a large amount of gear while complying with most USA domestic airline size requirements, has been completely upgraded. Like the Airport Airstream, it now comes with all of the company’s enhanced security features. In addition, the optional Airport Security Low Divider Set is now available, which allows the Artificial Intelligence 15 & 17 laptop cases or the Cable Management 50 to lay inside of the roller.
* Airport International V2.0 –This new version of the popular mid-sized roller was recently named a 2008 winner of the “Hot One Award.” In making this award the judges noted that the Airport International was “the first large rolling camera bag to meet all international carry-on size requirements.” The roller, which now includes the new enhanced security features, was designed to accommodate a 300 2.8, 400 2.8, or 500 4 with lens hoods, multiple DSLR bodies and lenses, and other photography accessories.
The AI Low Divider Set is also available for safe laptop storage.
“With all of these rollers we’ve listened to photographer fears and designed in strong, customizable features that allow them to use this rolling camera bag not only as a means of transporting equipment from one site to the next, but for storing it securely during a shoot,” said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank Photo’s founder and lead designer. “As they are rollers, photographers can move quickly from one flight to the next and without the burden of carrying this weight on their shoulders. The goal is to minimize the wear and tear on their bodies and the fears associated with transporting expensive photographic equipment.”
