Think Tank Photo today announced a brand new rolling camera bag that will available next month. The purpose of this bag is to allow for easy carry-on of all yourÂ essentialÂ camera gear that you don’t trust as checked in luggage. The Airport 4-Sight meets all international airline carry-onÂ standardsÂ and is designed to fit in all overhead compartments.
The main feature of the Airport 4-Sight is the major reduction in weight by focusing on the features photographers find most useful. It’s also more ergonomic now and the use of 4Â independently moving wheels means it’s easier to maneuver.
The Think Tank Photo Airport 4-Sight will be available soon for $299.75 on their website here. Â Check out the press release below for more information.
Santa Rosa, Calif. â€“ Â Think Tank Photo announces that in May it will release its first four-wheeled rolling camera bag, the Airport 4-Sightâ„¢.Â The Airport 4-Sight meets international airline carry-on standards. The rollerâ€™s weight has been reduced dramatically through innovative design and by a strict focus on the features that photographers find most beneficial.
With professional photography gear not getting any lighter, Think Tank set out to design a more ergonomic roller to reduce fatigue and strain on traveling photographers. Â Walking a four-wheeler alongside oneâ€™s self is easier than pulling it behind or carrying it over a shoulder. Putting the bags weight on four-wheels eliminates arm strain and makes rolling effortless.
Four-wheelers are superior on many smooth surfaces. On thick carpet, the Airport 4-Sight leans over to perform as a traditional two-wheel roller. It has the added benefit of rolling sideways on two wheels to easily navigate tight spaces, such as airline aisles.
