A Simple Shoulder Bag for my Nikon D40

Up until this point, I’ve owned a Think Tank Photo backpack for carrying around my Nikon D700 and all the gear that accompanies it. The only problem was that I didn’t have something simple to carry around my smaller DSLR (Nikon D40), in case I didn’t need all of the accessories and tripod; a bag that would be easy to throw over my shoulder for a quick trip to the park with friends or downtown for a photowalk.

That’s when I decided that the Think Tank Photo Retrospective 5 was a perfect fit. It’s not a bag that will hold a ton of gear, but it’s exactly what I need; a simple shoulder bag that doesn’t need to hold every little piece of equipment I own. It allows me to take my D40 around in something comfortable and stylish.

Retrospective 5 Features:

– Perfect size for DSLR, Micro Four Thirds, rangefinder camera systems
– Minimalist outer appearance conceals expensive photo equipment
– Hook-and-loop “Sound Silencers” on front flap eliminate noise while opening the bag
– Two colors; Pinestone and Black

Think Tank Photo doesn’t sacrifice quality either just because it’s a smaller bag. This thing is rock solid and I have no doubts it’ll keep my camera protected while lasting a long time.

If the Retrospective 5 is too small for your needs, the shoulder bag also comes in similar styles of the Retrospective 10, 20, and 30, with each size up being able to carry a bit more equipment.

I would recommend Think Tank Photo’s bags to anyone. In my opinion, if you’re going to spend good money on a camera, then buying a quality camera bag to protect and carry around that investment is a must.
