PHOTOHIKER Hiking Backpack for Photographer

A camera backpack build around a prograde carrying system from high-end hiking backpacks

The global backpack market was valued at USD 18 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 22 billion by 2026. Over the last few years, photography and adventure sports have witnessed a significant increase in the number of participants contributing to the growth of the backpack market. One such new market entrant is Cosyspeed’s new outdoor photography backpack called the Photohiker.

Cosyspeed has collaborated with German outdoor equipment specialist, Vaude, to bring photographers a sturdy backpack that can withstand rough use while safely storing sensitive photography equipment such as cameras and laptops. The unique feature of the PHOTOHIKER is the carrying system which is normally used in high-end hiking and trekking packs. COSYSPEED has turned around the design process of a camera backpack by designing the carrying system first and in a second step the photo functionality. This gives landscape and nature photographers maximum comfort on extensive photo-hikes. The Photo Cube XL accessory ensures the photo functionality of the backpack is utilized to its maximum capacity. In addition, Photohiker comes with sturdy plastic panels installed on the sides that provide crucial protection for expensive camera systems and lenses against tripods stored in the side pockets.

The collaboration with Vaude enables the Photohiker to boast a pro-grade carrying system for challenging photography conditions. With up to two removable Photocubes and a laptop compartment, the bag offers enough space and protection for the equipment of photographers. It accepts system cameras and medium-sized DSLRs, as well as standard and telephoto lenses and accessories. Smaller accessories can be stowed in zip pockets nestled inside the bag’s inner flap. The optionally available Photo Cube M fits into the upper compartment of the Photohiker and can thus increase the capacity for photo equipment storage. In the back, there is a padded zip compartment that has enough space to hold a MacBookPro 16” comfortably. The side pockets and underbody are outfitted with a rubberized material on the inside that can hold a tripod each. Available in two different capacities of 44 and 24 liters, the Photohiker is a perfect companion to bring onboard aircraft for your mid-travel photo editing sessions as both sizes are in accordance with IATA guidelines.

The carrying system features a very well-ventilated Aeroflex 3D back system with an integrated metal frame. Comfortable ErgoShape straps and adjustable back length allow for comfortable carrying, and uncomplicated adjustment to different body sizes even for extended outdoor sessions without having to take breaks to manage equipment.

The bag is made with tough nylon materials with a rain hood at the bottom that gives it the ability to withstand heavy rain showers. The bag is made in compliance with high environmental standards and is free of PFC, meaning that it meets the stringent criteria for the Green Button Alliance Certification, the government seal for environmentally sound production, and fair working conditions.

Canon RF 600mm f/11 Review – The Perfect Wildlife Lens For Beginners?

Canon Rf 600mm F/11 Review

Here is a new Canon RF 600mm f/11 review. The RF 600mm f/11 and RF 800mm f/11 made quite a splash when they were announced. Initially seen with skepticism, they are now getting many positive reviews.

DPReview TV posted their Canon RF 600mm f/11 review.

Chris turns a trip to Calgary Zoo into something of a safari, as he reviews the Canon RF 600mm F11 USM as a wildlife lens. Its long focal length and relatively modest price make it an attractive option for birding and nature photography but, as Chris discovers, it’s not without limitations.

Enjoy.

Also interesting: an interview with the engineers who developed these lens. Also, Canon already said there will be more such lenses. For more Canon RF 800mm f/11 and RF 600mm f/11 review stuff have a look here.

Canon EOS R5c Announcement At The Beginning of 2022?

Canon Rumors Canon EOS R5c

We didn’t get the Canon EOS R3, despite all the rumors pointing to an imminent announcement. But despair not: here is a Canon EOS R5c rumor for you.

The EOS R5c would be the cinema/movie making version of the EOS R5. Rumor-wise the EOS R5c got little attention. Canon Rumors reports with confidence that the EOS R5c might get announced in Q1 2022. The rumor also suggests that the announcement was postponed after a scheduled October 2021 release.

While getting most of the features of the Canon EOS R5, the EOS R5c might also sport:

  • active cooling
  • slightly different form factor
  • more codecs for video recording
  • full-size HDMI port.

Still a long time to go for an announcement in Q1 2022. Stay tuned.
