Press Release: Peak Design Releases Everyday Line V2

Our good friends over at Peak Design has just announced and released revamped designs and new carry styles of the Everyday Line of bags.

The Everyday Line V2, which includes the Everyday Messenger, Everyday Tote, Everyday Sling and Everyday Backpack, directly addresses the most common failure point of every bag—zippers. Peak Design now utilizes Ultrazips, a proprietary zipper technology that employs ultra-high-molecular-weight thermoplastic thread to bind zipper coils to fabric tape. This dramatically increases abrasion resistance and results in zippers that have 20x anti-tear strength compared to regular zippers. Fans of the Everyday Backpack and Everyday Messenger will also enjoy improvements in the look and feel of custom hard-wear such as the Maglatch™ closure system.

Joining the Everyday Line V2 family are the all new Everyday Backpack Zip and the Everyday Totepack. Available in 15L and 20L versions, the Everyday Backpack Zip is a visually and functionally simpler version of its full-featured predecessor, the Everyday Backpack V2. The Everyday Totepack is an attractive and highly functional hybrid that effortlessly handles everyday carry. Padded backpack straps quickly stow away when the Totepack’s padded carry handles are in use, and top and dual side access points allow convenient access to internal organization provided by two, easy-to-configure, FlexFold™ dividers.

The Everyday Line V2 will be available for purchase starting November 25th at Peak Design's websiteAmazon, B&H Photo and Adorama.

Syrp Releases Circular Polarizing Filter

Syrp has announced a new Circular Polarizer filter. This new filter will be available in two sizes, either an 82mm (large) or 67mm (small) size. The large filter includes step-up rings for 77mm and 72mm lenses while the small filter comes with adapters for 58mm and 52mm lenses. Also included is a genuine leather case and Syrp Lens cloth.

The Circular Polarizer Filter is constructed from German Schott glass, with an anti-scratch layer, is multi-coated and has a super low reflection rate. The frame is aluminum and as it has a low-profile, can be stacked with other filters if needed.

The Circular Polarizer joins the Variable ND, two filters that are perfectly tuned for use with Syrp’s motion control systems.

Polarizing filters are an essential film-making and photography tool for shooting in harsh light when you want to get that perfect cloud filled beach shot, mountain landscape or glassy water shot. Polarizing filters add contrast and reduce glare in your image this gives you a deeper blue sky, removes harsh reflections in water and enables you to shoot through windows and other surfaces that are creating unwanted reflections and glare.

The Syrp Polarizing Filter range is available for $99.00 (small) and $119.00 (large). You can purchase from directly. B&H Photo and Adorama also carries Syrp filters.
