Lowepro Introduces Stealth Reporter AW Digital Series Camera Bags Designed Specifically for Today's Photojournalist

Quick-Access Lid, Deluxe Shoulder Strap and Scratch Resistant Padded Storage Compartments Make New Stealth Reporter AW Digital Bags the Perfect Choice

Sebastopol, CA -- February 26, 2006 -- Lowepro, a leading manufacturer of protective cases and backpacks for cameras, notebook computers and other consumer electronics, is introducing a new line of digital camera bags designed specifically for today's digital photojournalists, news, and sports photographers. The new Stealth Reporter D-Series camera bags, through its unique water-resistant top zipper, gives photographers quick and easy access to camera gear to help them capture those extraordinary moments that happen in a split second. The new camera bags include the Stealth Reporter D650 AW and D550 AW with notebook computer compartments, and the D400AW, D300AW, D200AW and D100AW models. 

The workflow of today's digital photojournalist requires a camera bag as specialized as the camera gear it protects and the new Stealth Reporter AW Digital bags include many features to allow photographers to quickly and comfortably access their gear in even the most adverse conditions. A densely padded, fully adjustable divider system (models D400-D650 AW only) allows users to configure the bag to their exact camera carrying needs while accommodating a multitude of digital accessories. The deluxe shoulder strap with full rotation metal clips is densely padded for carrying heavy loads and can be worn in a sling style. The stabilizer strap evenly distributes weight and reduces bag movement while running. In addition, the Stealth Reporter AW Digital Series also includes a built-in All Weather Cover™ to protect equipment from the harsh elements.

"Lowepro's new Stealth Reporter AW Digital bags take into consideration the workflow of today's digital photojournalist and provides them with a protective and efficient carrying solution," said Nicole Mummenhoff, Vice President of Lowepro. "With rugged materials and designed for digital features, these bags will stand up to the elements in the field and accommodate a multitude of digital gear and accessories," Ms. Mummenhoff added.

The Stealth Reporter AW Digital Series camera bags incorporate many of the features and functions that have made Lowepro a favorite among professional photographers for more than 35 years. Based on input from photojournalists, Lowepro has designed these camera bags to specifically address the needs of a new breed of photojournalist.

A removable memory card wallet gives photographers quick access to memory cards and allows the wallet to be stored separate from the bag or attached to the shoulder strap for quick access and the removable accessory pouch provides easy access to cables, adaptor and other digital accessories. In addition, a padded, tricot-lined pocket offers protection for photo viewers and other digital devices and the hidden passport/ticket pocket keeps sensitive documents secure.
The removable carrying handle and luggage trolley strap offer a variety of carrying solutions. Lowepro's signature SlipLock™ attachment loops give photographers added flexibility to attach SlipLock compatible cases, like a bottle bag or accessory pouch.

The new Stealth Reporter AW Digital Series camera bags are designed to carry a pro digital or 35mm SLR camera with an attached lens, extra lenses or flash units, 12 memory cards, photo viewer, batteries, cables and other digital accessories. The Stealth Reporter D550 AW and D650 AW models will also accommodate a 12" & 17" notebook computer, respectively.
