Tenba has launched their first major enthusiast/prosumer collection called Mixx. This new collection comprises a broad range of bags—from small pouches and top load bags for point and shoot cameras and single SLR setups, to shoulder bags and a daypack to fit larger camera systems. Mixx is both colorfully styled and incredibly lightweight, and all bags maintain Tenba’s dedication to professional quality construction, materials and hardware.

Each Mixx product is lighter weight at its size and capacity than any similar product Tenba has ever offered. This was a major goal from the beginning of the collection design. The materials and hardware used in each bag meet the “no compromise” level that has continued to be Tenba’s signature, including YKK zippers and Duraflex clips. Top Loads, Shoulder Bags and the Daypack all include Tenba’s exclusive WeatherWrap, the fastest deploying all-weather cover around.

The Mixx collection includes three pouch sizes, the largest of which was designed to be a perfect fit for the Canon G9 and G10. For an SLR with a single lens there are two sizes of Top Load bags that can be use with the supplied shoulder strap or attached to a belt. Small and large sized Shoulder Bags fit cameras with extra lenses, flash and accessories, And finally, the Daypack is a comfortable and supportive way to carry both a camera system and the other items you might need during a full day of shooting, like food, an umbrella and a jacket.

Mixx products range in (manufacturer’s suggested) retail price from $11.95 to $74.95. For more information, visit Tenba.com

Benro, who has been manufacturing tripods for more than 10 years (and has the #1 market share in their home country of China), offers high quality tripods, monopods and heads that are built to professional standards at an extraordinary value. Benro is distributed in the U.S. by Westchester, NY based MAC Group. “We are very proud to add Benro to our product mix,” states Jeff Karp, Benro Product Marketing Manager. “The high quality, innovative designs and exceptional value make Benro the perfect choice for demanding photographers on a budget.”

Benro has the technology and manufacturing capabilities to build products made of carbon fiber (8 layers for ultimate stability), aluminum (top performance at an economical price) and magnesium (lighter than aluminum, yet stronger) – materials that provide outstanding performance and reliability -- at economical prices. Benro is the only company that makes its own carbon fiber tubing.

An excellent example of Benro’s design capabilities is their new "Quick Lock" Leg System that sets the new standard in flip lock technology. Its rugged construction, reliability and ease of operation elevates leg locking systems to a new level.

One of the most unique tripods in Benro’s lineup is the patented Travel Angel, available in both carbon fiber and aluminum. This is an easy-to-carry, ultra-compact tripod that photographers will take with them everywhere they go. What good is a tripod if you leave it home because it’s too big or heavy? Travel Angel’s unique 180 degree fold over design allows them to be folded into a compact package (up to 20% smaller than conventionally designed tripods) that can easily fit into backpacks or luggage. However, when quick setup, excellent maximum height and a rigid, stable support are needed, Benro Travel Angels are outstanding performers. All kits include a BH-Series single action or B-Series dual action ballhead that matches the size of the tripod.

In addition to tripods and monopods, Benro builds a full range of heads. Whether you select a Benro single action or dual action ballhead or 3-Way panhead, you’ll see the quality that goes into all Benro products the minute you pick them up. Benro tripod heads are produced using the latest in precision machining and manufacturing technology to ensure smooth and secure operation. The patented, dual locking, dovetailed Quick Release Plates or Arca Swiss style Quick Release Plates allow fast and secure camera mounting and dismounting without having to worry about accidentally unseating the camera.

To help you decide on the right equipment for your shooting situations, Benro provides a series of web-based videos that show the features and benefits of Benro products. Choose from “Why you need a tripod” (even with image stabilization and high ISO cameras, the best results happen with a tripod) to “Selecting the perfect tripod head” to “Benro Travel Angel” and more.
