Think Tank Photo announces three new backpacks  
Wednesday, May 2, 2012 | by Rob Galbraith
If there's a worldwide shortage of fabric and zippers in the near future, blame Think Tank Photo. The camera bag company's latest pre-announcement of upcoming new products, the fourth in as many weeks, is for three new backpacks. Called the Airport Accelerator, Airport Commuter and Airport Essentials, all three meet both U.S. and international carry-on size regulations, while the latter two will also squeeze under the seat of typical regional aircraft.
  • Airport Essentials The smallest of the three, it "accommodates a standard DSLR, 4-6 standard zooms, iPad and up to 13” laptop. Fits up to a 300 f/2.8 lens attached a standard sized camera body," says the Think Tank Photo website.

  • Airport Commuter Slightly larger, it will hold "a pro sized DSLR, 4-6 standard zooms, iPad and 15” laptop. With its increased depth, it holds a 400 f/2.8 attached to a camera body or a 500 f/4 unattached."

  • Airport Accelerator For carrying serious quantities of gear, this backpack will accept "two pro size DSLR’s, 6-8 standard zooms plus an iPad and up to a 17” laptop. For the big glass enthusiasts, it will accommodate a 600 f/4 with body detached OR a 500 f/4 with body attached."
