I was wondering if you could recommend me a backpack. I current have a Lowepro Flipside 300, and although it's quite handy around town, it not big enough for long distance travels.
I'm looking for something that'll carry:
5D Mark II with grip
Additionally, I need to be able to carry a 15" Macbook Pro, associated chargers, and a couple CF memory cards.
The two I came up with are:
Think Tank Street Walker Hard Drive
Kata PL-BG-203 Pro-Light Bug
But, I can't decide which to get. Plus, are there any other good ones you recommend? Thanks in advance for your help!
The Gura Gear Kiboko 22L
I tried to word it as such. Though, the day isn't over yet.
I don't think anything is coming today/tomorrow.
The information below comes from various sources on the web and in my inbox.
Specs? Two different pieces of information put the camera above 30mp. I get the idea there is more than one sensor being put through the paces. It will not have a pro AF system. It was suggested by one person that the AF will actually be a lesser version of the 7D autofocus system. The camera would not have a crazy frame per second rating, something in the 3-4fps range like the current 5D Mark II. It will be equipped with the DIGIC 5+ processor and be aimed at high megapixel/high ISOÃ‚ performance. The 5D Mark III will not be the 4K Cinema EOS prototype Canon previously announced was in development. There were no details given about the video functionality of the camera.
Most everyone is saying do not expect an announcement until at least March when the 1D X should be shipping. Announcement dates can always change though. It may depend on what Nikon does with the D800.
The camera will probably be a new 24mp APS-C sensor and run a DIGIC 5 processor. The DIGIC 5+ wonâ€™t be used.
Expect some standard upgrades in ISO performance, HD movie modes and some creative control updates. The final spec list is not yet finalized.
It was mentioned that Canon may keep the new sensor for a 60D upgrade, with the next Rebel sticking at 18mp.
