As I've had many years to consider what makes a bad sling bag, I've been able to design a great sling bag for both photo and video producers. If you're a bag or sporting goods manufacturer in the Seattle area, or you have a relationship with one, I'd love to collaborate with you to make this bag a reality. Whether you want to buy the design outright or truly collaborate on it, I'm ready to fund the creation of prototypes. Photographers and videographers deserve a sling bag that's truly designed around how they work, commute and create, one that adapts to them and gets out of their way.
While some of my lenses are weather sealed, most are not, and I began to fear for the worst: Lens mold. None are moldy or otherwise show any defect, but I don't want any future problems, especially if I end up swapping or selling a few of my lenses.

I review products because I like doing it, I enjoy trying new products and prefer to use brands that are less popular. It's these choices that I hope give my reviews a little more value due to scarcity. These are my opinions and my opinions only...
Some may be familiar with my previous experience with DRO Concepts. Their cases were absolute crap that damaged my device and despite accepting my returned case, still haven't refunded my money and refuse to take my calls or emails. if you've ever been victimized by them, i truly feel for you and all can empathize....

since the introduction of the iPhone 4, it seems the outspoken few in the blogging world have come out against slider cases, providing anecdotal proof in the way of photos of broken iPhones, claiming their InCase slider style cases had caused the damage. this is clearly and patently false. yes, the iPhone is constructed of...

ok folks, time for a simple lesson in physics. first off, any metallic case, be it aluminum, steel, titanium, or any alloy of these materials, is dense. all metals have dense molecular construction that gives it the properties they exhibit in hardness and tensile strength, some more than others. because of this, it also makes...

disclaimer: this, like any other product reviewed by me, are not "review units." i buy and pay for all of the items reviewed and the manufacturer is unaware of my intent to post publicly my impressions of their product. because of this, any issues in the ordering process can and will be included. the slider...
