By Anthony Thurston on July 23rd 2015

The Everyday Messenger Bag by Peak Design


Peak Design has teamed up with Trey Ratcliff on their latest Kickstarter project, the Everyday Messenger Bag. The bag is designed to be a great all around bag, as well as a great camera bag.

This makes the bag the perfect bag for any situation, possibly the last bag you will ever need. We aren’t alone in being stoked for this bag either; others agree and only 1 day into their Kickstarter campaign, the company has secured over 4 times, yes 4 times, their initial funding goal of $100,000.

Watch the video below for more details, and make sure to head on over to the Kickstarter page to learn more and support the project.

Vlog Coming To GH4 Around October


You GH4 shooters have been asking, and asking…and asking. Well, we finally have an answer for you and it comes direct from Panasonic. The GH4 is a killer video camera, offering 4K in one affordable, yet high quality, package. But it doesn’t shoot Vlog, until now.

Well, according to Panasonic New Zealand, the GH4 firmware update will bring Vlog to the camera and is expected in October. We don’t know the exact date, or what other features might be coming too, but we have a general timeframe – which is better than before.

Only two or three months to go…

GoPro Hero 4 Session – How Does It Stack Up?

The GoPro Hero4 Session is one of the more interesting releases to date, and today I wanted to share a really well-done overview of the camera – its positives and negatives. The team over at Fotodiox Pro put together this wonderful video, which you can see below:

If you are interested in picking up a session for yourself, you can find them now over on B&H here.

    I think this bag is awful. Cumbersome.

    This bag looks great. I don’t normally fund kickstarter projects but I backed this one. I love the idea that it can be an everyday bag at any time. Much easier than taking inserts out of my other camera bags. And for once it actually looks nice too haha! $200 well spent in my opinion.

    nice features. but no proper padding and I guess styling was low on priority.

    I was going to make fun of what kind of overpriced bag (must be Leica branded) can trick people into funding it that fast. But actually that looks like a pretty great bag.

    I still like stuffing an insert in a non-camera bag, but this is a legit product. I hope they sell those dividers separately, I’ll sneak them into my current bag.

      I am an insert user too. I picked up a cheapie from eBay and it goes into my rucksack. It’s not a quick-draw system, but I don’t do any shooting that needs a quick response.

      I hate over priced camera bags, I think most photographers do… I’d buy this bag. I actually like the design/style, and I’ve been looking for a shoulder bag for portrait shoots, I hate having the big bag I use now. The hard part though is finding a nice, stylish bag that does what you want it to do .. AND fit your giant pro bodies plus at least 2-3 lenses and a tablet. This bag honestly looks kinda small, and I notice they used Sonys for the test subject. :O

    Just noticed that they are at half a million already. Having Trey on board was a good move, I hope he (Trey that is) negotiated his slice well.

    It looks to be quite a nice bag.
