Happy New Year!


January is a great time of year to get inspired, clean out closets, review upcoming expenses, and even tackle that messy garage. But what about your camera gear? Let us help you get organized for the New Year!

Award winning photographer, Mary Ellen Mark talks about her work and her upcoming book, Prom.

This month, we are working with Nik Software to bring you a very exciting webinar! Sign up today!

Read on and enjoy. We hope you like what you see.
Every January 1, we make resolutions for ourselves. This year, how about we resolve together to get our camera gear organized?

Over time we tend to collect lenses and other accessories. How are you storing them? On shelves where they're exposed to dust? In various camera bags? Desk drawers?

One of the best systems for protecting your equipment in an organized manner is with a roller bag. You can create compartments for each item, with everything clearly visible when you open the bag.

Pro Roller x200When it's time to go on a shoot, you can select the pieces you need and put them in your favorite backpack or shoulder sling. And if it's a big assignment, just take the entire roller with you. If you review the options on the Lowepro Pro Roller x-Series page, you'll see that there are a variety of sizes to accommodate the amount of equipment you use.


Rollers are easy to store. They don't take up much room, even in the tightest quarters. Yet, you have bodies, lenses, flashes, and other accessories readily available... and protected. While you're organizing the rest of your life in this New Year, consider treating yourself to a sturdy, efficient, and handsome roller bag. What a great way to start 2012.

recap from CES  

Check out our video recap of CES 2012 and get a taste for what's new in tech...and at Lowepro! 

Lowepro's patented, built-in All Weather AW Cover™ not only helps protect your bag from rain and snow, it can help keep black bags from heating up in sunny conditions. Just pull out the cover to reflect light and help keep those image sensors a bit cooler.

-Derrick Story, Lowepro Photography Evangelist  

Our trek started in a small Colorado garage over 40 years ago. Since then, we've been traveling the world on the backs and shoulders of the best photographers on the planet. We've learned. We've innovated. We've become a leader.


We're looking forward to sharing this journey with you.
