Kickstarter: Peak Design Everyday Messenger Bag and Field Pouch

Our good friends over at Peak Design has released their 5th Kickstarter project. Their latest project isn't another Capture Clip or strap. Instead, its a messenger bag and a pouch.

The Everyday Messenger Bag doesn't look bulky and expands nicely. The flap has a zipper to let you easily access your camera and lens without having to lift the flap up. And if you already own a Capture Clip, there are two diagonal straps on the side of the bag to let you attach your Capture Clip. There is also a dedicated 13"-15" laptop/tablet sleeve and document pocket.

The Field Pouch fits in both the main compartment and the front panel of The Everyday Messenger. It’s made from the same materials, contains 5 stretchy mesh pockets, and holds a lot or a little without losing its shape.

You can even attach Peak Design straps to the Pouch (via Hypalon loops on either side) and attach Capture on the front Hypalon strap. It becomes the perfect excursion bag for you and a mirrorless camera.

The Field Pouch pledge is $30 and the Everyday Messenger Bag is $195. Buy both together for $225.

We'll bring full review of the messenger bag and pouch when we get them in our hands.

Press Release: Canon Speedlite 430EX III-RT Announced Today

Canon has today introduced a new midrange Speedlite to replace the Speedlite 430EX II. There has been a price drop for retailers [Amazon | B&H Photo | Adorama] so this gave some indication that a new flash was coming.

This is Canon's second flash to support radio-based wireless TTL (the 600EX-RT being the other), which Canon says offer longer ranges, more flexible positioning, and no line-of-sight requirement like traditional optical wireless flash systems. Unlike its more expensive sibling, the 430EX III-RT can serve only as a slave. It can be controlled using either radio or optical systems. Also compatible with cameras that feature an Integrated Speedlite Transmitter, including the EOS 760D and EOS 70D, the Speedlite can be used instantly as an off-camera flash with output and power controllable from the camera menu.

The Speedlite 430EX III-RT is faster, smaller, and lighter than its predecessor. It which offers silent power recycling, has a lens coverage range of 24mm to 105mm, or to 14mm via the built-in adapter, giving the user a variable light spread to work with. Plus, a maximum Guide Number of 43 at ISO 100 provides enough power to light subjects in a wide range of conditions, with the flexibility to work alongside additional flashes using the radio or optical remote control system. The Speedlite also features a new and enhanced illuminated dot matrix LCD display and a multi-control dial provides shortcuts to the main functionality. In addition to tilting upward 90 degrees the flash can also rotate 150 degrees left and 180 degrees right. A catchlight panel is also included. There are now 10 custom as well as 8 personal functions.

The 430EX III-RT will be available in September for $299. A color filter, bounce adapter, and two cases will be bundled with the flash. You can place your preorder for the 430EX III-RT with B&H Photo and Adorama.

Press Release: GoPro Announces HERO4 Session

Available from 12 July, GoPro has announced its “smallest, lightest and most convenient GoPro, yet.” The GoPro HERO4 Session action camera is 50% smaller, 40% lighter and will combine a meticulously compact design with a simple one-button capture solution. In addition to the fact that the Hero4 Session comes in significantly lighter and smaller package than the previous HERO4 Black and Silver solutions, potential consumers will also love the fact that no external waterproof housing is required as the HERO4 Session is waterproof out-of-the-box.

Even though the action camera is smaller, lighter, and more versatile than previous offerings but it still serves up backwards compatibility with existing GoPro mounts. That’s great news for those GoPro fans who have invested lots of dollars into grabbing accessories for their earlier camera versions.

GoPro HERO4 Session will retail for $399.00 and can be purchased from Amazon, B&H Photo and Adorama.
