Lowepro announces the launch of Flipside 400 AW, a high-performance camera
backpack designed with a large capacity, premium security, all-day comfort,
plus protection from the elements.



Flipside
400 AW features a unique back-entry compartment that provides easy access to
gear when setting up--keeping the harness off the ground and clean--plus
extra security when on the move. With access to gear placed in the rear of the
backpack, roving hands are discouraged from reaching into the bag. With the
padded waistbelt secured, gear is quickly reached by rotating the entire bag
to the front, offering hands-free use and providing a stable work platform while
changing batteries, memory cards or setting up for the next shot. To protect
expensive gear from the elements, the Flipside 400 AW includes Lowepro's
patented, built-in All Weather Cover.

Multiblitz USA introduced the new monolight-battery-bundle GLAMKIT to the North American market. The GLAMKIT combines the TIPA Award winning PROFILUX PLUS studio flash system (named Best Flash System 2010) optional with 200 Ws (7 f-stops), 400 Ws (7 f-stops), or 800 Ws (8 f-stops) with the Multiblitz PROPAC 1 battery pack, and the 3 ft. octagonal softbox GLAMBOX 90. A sturdy trolley with a snug-fitting soft case and harness for the PROPAC battery pack with Velcro fastening straps for the included 8 ft. air-cushioned light stand completes the GLAMKIT. The battery pack/trolley combination serves as a counterweight for the flash unit on the stand, often prone to strong air drag in windy conditions – especially with the use of larger light shapers. A perfect pick for a quick 1-unit on-location set-up for glamour and wedding shoots.
