Roundup: Covering The Photo Beat: Speedlights, Carriers & A Digital “Binder”
Nikon SB-300 Speedlight
Small enough to fit into a shirt pocket, the SB-300 Speedlight provides more power and coverage than a built-in flash. Compatible with both Nikon D-SLR and Advanced Performance Coolpix cameras, it covers a wide-angle 18mm in DX format and operates via simple on-camera controls. The SB-300 tilts up to 120 degrees, allowing for more flattering portraits and even exposures. Powered by two AAA batteries, the SB-300 features thermal cut-out protection to prevent overheating when capturing rapid flash images in succession. The suggested price is $149.95.
Pelican ProGear Camera Pack
The Pelican ProGear U160 Urban Elite Half Case Camera Pack is the latest addition to Pelican’s successful line of photo backpacks. Crafted from ballistic nylon, this soft bag is integrated with a crushproof Pelican case that features a watertight O-ring seal with an automatic pressure equalization valve. Other features include removable padded dividers, a padded upper compartment for accessories, a pocket to store a tablet, tripod carrier straps, various side pockets, an aluminum S-curve spine and vented padding, a nylon chest clip, and a removable waist belt.
Gura Gear Sabi Sack
Handcrafted in the U.S.A. from heavy-duty, PU-coated Cordura fabrics and reinforced with double stitching, the Sabi is a step up from a traditional photography beanbag. Compact yet stable and highly versatile, it features the innovative double-pillow design that lets you adapt to any situation from rocks to tree stumps and beyond. Available in two sizes, the Sabi features a concealed zipper with a leak-stop tab.
