Lowepro introduces a modern and compact carrying system expressly designed to fit Sony® NEX and similar compact system cameras, plus key accessories.
(Petaluma, CA, May 1, 2011) – Lowepro, the leading brand of protective gear for photography equipment and portable electronic devices, announces the launch of its lightweight and flexible carrying solution for Sony® NEX and similar models of compact system cameras. This new series includes two inventive shoulder bag options.
"The smart and elegant design of today's compact system cameras deserves the same of its carrying solution," said Treg Tyler, Lowepro worldwide marketing director. "Our Compact Courier series provides the inspiration with its modern, compact and stylish shape," he added.
The Compact Courier 80, specifically designed to fit the Sony® NEX series, offers a 2-bags-in-1 solution. It may be worn over the shoulder, across the body, or attached to a belt and outfitted with a compact system camera, plus an 18-55mm lens attached and extra pancake/16mm lens in the main compartment. For a more minimal option, remove the built-in Mini Quick Case and only carry the camera with the pancake/16mm lens attached. The Mini Quick Case includes a leash that tethers to a camera strap, securing the case to the camera while wearing and shooting — making it quick and easy to capture the moment.
The flexible Compact Courier 70 is Lowepro's smallest carrying solution for the new styles of cameras. It's designed to fit a Sony® NEX, or similar model, with an 18-55mm lens attached. To carry a more expanded kit, attach the auxiliary lens pouch to the shoulder strap. It fits a pancake/16mm lens and is included with the bag.
Both shoulder bags feature Lowepro's protective and thoughtful details, such as: padded interiors with contrasting, brushed tricot lining; a built-in memory card pocket on the outside flap; a built-in microfiber cleaning cloth to protect a lens and LCD screen from dust and smudges; an extra-wide, dual-zippered opening for easy access to the main compartment; hook/loop fasteners on the flap; an adjustable shoulder strap; a built-in belt loop; sturdy hardware; and durable, water-resistant materials that protect from impact and moisture.
The Compact Courier 80 and Compact Courier 70 are available in Black (with Red piping) and Grey (with Arctic Blue piping). For more information on the series and other products, please contact Lowepro or visit www.lowepro.com.
