Our New Favorite Camera Bag! (plus Father’s Day Gift Ideas)

dadsday2010-feature.jpg

Buckles, zippers, and straps — covert architects of lost photo opportunities everywhere.

We can’t count the number of times our trusty SLR was at our side but we missed the shot, thwarted by a case too slow to open.

Then we found it.

Our new fave camera bag, the Cloak, lets you shoot while your camera’s still in the bag!

How it works: a zippered bottom can stay open while you walk because the bag’s strap doubles as the camera’s strap. And stealthy elastic side slits let you get your hands on the controls in a flash. It’s as if the camera’s right there in plain sight. But only you can see it. (learn more)

Now when that perfect moment occurs, we just lift our camera bag to our face and snap! (Scroll on for more Father’s Day Gift ideas…)

dadsday-whitebalancelenscap.jpgIs dad a rapid-fire shooter? Fixing dozens (or even 100s) of photos with just slightly different colors, one-by-one, is a pain only too familiar.
