Manfrotto Unica VII Messenger Bag ~ Near Perfect Camera Bag

Posted by Stacie Huckeba in "Digital Home Hardware & Accessories" @ 04:17 PM

Product Category: Camera Bag
Manufacturer: Manfrotto
Where to Buy: Best Buy, Amazon
Price: $50 - $99 USD
Holds: DSLR with lens attached as well as 1 to 2 other lenses, 17" Macbook (15.4" laptop) and personal effects.
Specifications: Product Height 12.2", Product Width 7.5", Product Depth18.9",Product Weight 2.2 lbs.

Pros:

  • Lightweight;
  • Cost Effective;
  • Lots of Storage Space.

Cons:

  • Shoulder Pad is not Comfortable;
  • No Regular Tripod Attachment;
  • No Easy Access Side Pockets.

Summary: The Manfrotto Unica VII Messenger Bag is a great camera bag for photographers on the go or who travel frequently. It is stylish and has an easy access top zipper that lets you get to all your gear in a hurry. That same zipper makes it easy to grab your laptop out for airport security checkpoints and, yes, the whole bag is carry-on friendly for both domestic and international flights.

The ability to carry a pro body with a battery pack attached and a 17 inch laptop along with other lenses and equipment without weighing a ton or requiring you to stop and find a place to sit your bag down in order to access your equipment is a lifesaver. The messenger bag style makes it easy to carry around all day and doesn't scream "I have an expensive camera in here!". The price point on this can't be beat - at $50 - $100, it easily compares to bags twice the price. Read more...

Would You Like To Know More? Scan This Barcode

"Do-it-yourselfers will now be able to do more product research by themselves as well, now that The Home Depot is bringing mobile barcodes to its shelves."

With nearly every mobile device sporting a decent (or better) camera, this seems to be a logical way of providing more information for consumers. Once Lowe's starting using the system, Home Depot had to follow, even though they are using competing technology. Have you tried this yet, and, if so, what do you think? Useful?

Shoot Steady Video For Only $295!

Posted by Vincent Ferrari in "Apple iPhone & iPod Touch" @ 09:00 AM

"Introducing the Zgrip iPhone PRO, a completely adjustable and quick releasable handgrip system for shooting professional, stable video using the iPhone 3Gs. This is the first serious solution for shooting video with the iPhone 3Gs. It's all about stability."

$295 to shoot low-res video with the aid of a pistol grip? I'm sorry, but did I miss something? And not for nothing, but how much more stable will this make a camera? There's nothing holding the camera to your shoulder, just a pistol grip that sits in your hand. I could possibly live with this at a much lower price point, but $295 has me asking, "Are these folks serious?"
