28 Accessories Gear SpotliGht Are you searching for an everyday bag that will keep your belongings and your compact system camera safe and sound? This messenger bag from Lowepro offers dedicated storage compartments for your camera, tablet, smart phone and personal gear. Plus, the main compartment unzips at the bottom to expand for greater storage if needed. Padded and lined for greater protection, it’s made from durable weather-resistant fabric, making it a great option for daily use. If you want to take your iPhonography to the next level, this new iPhone case from Manfrotto should be right up your alley. The KYLP case allows you to attach a camera support and additional light to your iPhone and, when combined with the KLYP app, lets you shoot images or videos by simply clapping your hands. A continuous LED light mounts to the top of the KYLP case for better results in low light, and clip-on connectors allow you to attach Manfrotto’s optional PIXI tripod if required. Iphonography doesn’t get much better than this. You’ll be the envy of all your snap happy friends. LOWEPRO STREAMLINE 150 MANFROTTO KLYP FOR IPHONE With waterproof cameras becoming so commonplace, more people are taking to the surf with their cameras to capture their ocean exploits. The downside is that while your camera may be waterproof, it’s without a floatation device so if your grip slips, your camera can be lost to the watery depths for good. Enter the Bobber, a handy floatation device from the folk at GoPro that also doubles as a handgrip, and unlike some other floatation devices on the market, will not block the view of the LCD screen. The Bobber floats, sticking straight up out of the water, and its bright yellow colour makes it easy to spot should you lose your grip. You’ll never lose your camera again. GOPOLE BOBBER & REACH It’s difficult to find binoculars that will stand up to the rigours of the great outdoors but the UCF Zoom II from Pentax delivers superb zoom power in a compact, rugged design. A tough rubber exterior protects from dust, dirt and shock. Multicoated lenses allow for more light, and eliminate glare. A central control allows you to adjust focus and zoom and a diopter lets you adjust the binoculars to suit your vision. Do you want to add a creative edge to your images? Consider picking up a Lensbaby Composer Pro to give yourself the tilt and swivel ability of a much more expensive tilt-shift lenses. A step up from Lensbaby’s Composer, the Composer Pro features an updated focus mechanism with a fluid and accurate dampened focus ring comparable to the focus mechanisms of a pro shooter’s manual focus lens. Compatible with all the optics in Lensbaby’s Optic Swap System, as an added bonus the Composer Pro comes with the Sweet 35.
