Lowepro Addresses Needs of Photographers Who Carry Expensive and Delicate Telephoto Lenses
PHOTOKINA 2008, KÖLN, Deutschland – September, 23 2008 – Lowepro, creator of innovative carrying solutions for the imaging world, introduces the next generation of its pro-level Lens Trekker series, designed for the distinct requirements of nature and sports photographers who carry a telephoto lens and camera gear into rugged environments or crowded sports stadiums. The Lens Trekker 600 AW II addresses the needs of the professional who has a significant investment in expensive telephoto lenses.
The Lens Trekker AW II features an ergonomic, removable and fully adjustable-torso harness system with contoured mesh straps, plus a padded waist belt for added comfort-especially important when carrying heavy equipment to and from locations. Inside the deep and roomy main compartment, thick padding with shock-absorbing foam protects a pro DSLR with attached 600mm telephoto lens, or an unattached 800mm lens, plus lens hood and tripod collar. A Tripod Mount™ attaches to either side of the backpack helping to stabilize the tripod feet while the pack is in motion, and Lowepro’s patented All Weather Cover TM protects the pack against rains, sleet and snow.
“We’ve designed, innovated and adapted bags for the professional photographer for over 40 years,” said Nicole Mummenhoff, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing for Lowepro. “It’s only natural we update this highly specialized backpack for this important pro photographer segment. Lens Trekker 600 AW II is a perfect example of our commitment to offer camera bags that work in tandem with assignments.”
Additional features include a drop-down zipper to provide easy access to gear, six memory card pockets on the inside lid and D-rings, attachment loops and cinch straps for extra supplies.
Created specifically for the professional photographer who needs to carry expensive gear in the most daunting conditions, the Lens Trekker 600 AW II is extremely rugged, protective, comfortable and flexible.
