May 2017 - Manfrotto, world leader in the photography, imaging equipment and accessories industry, presents the new Manhattan Camera Bag Collection, designed for today’s busy urban dwellers with a passion for photography.
Manfrotto’s new Manhattan Camera Bags have been conceived by an NYC-based designer to be perfect for amateur and advanced hobbyist photographers who shoot with a DSLR, CSC and/or a premium mirrorless camera with multiple lenses.
These bags support busy urban lifestyles and effortlessly adapt to keep a wide array of kit choices safe thanks to Manfrotto’s New Flexy Camera Shell at the heart of the bag.
The collection comprises three models – a backpack, a 3-way shoulder bag and a messenger - built to seamlessly blend in with city life. From the daily commute to the office and back, and all the photo shoots in between – on foot, on two wheels or by any other means of transportation.
Versatile City Bags
Manfrotto’s Manhattan range is made of high-quality materials, with meticulous attention to detail. Designed to be highly functional, the bags effortlessly transform from photography to media carrier, comfortably holding all the equipment you need on an action-packed day around the city.
They provide a solution for all the daily essentials - including a padded media compartment, hidden pockets, multipurpose webbing and straps to secure a tripod, a helmet, a jacket and other bulky items. They also have innovative tripod connections hidden underneath and non-slip bumpers for extra stability in use.
The new removable Manfrotto Insert System safeguards photography gear at the heart of the bag. Stylishly branded, it is secured inside the bag with Velcro straps. When it’s not needed, this smart photography insert is easily removed and keeps gear safe when not in use.
Manfrotto’s new Flexy Camera Shell divider system combines uncompromising protection with never before seen flexibility, keeping your DSLR/CSC safe. Simply shape the dividers according to your choice of kit and you’re ready to go.
The new Manhattan Collection bags are made of tough, high-quality, resistant ballistic fabric, premium zippers and pullers that stay perfect despite prolonged use. The coated material on the bottom part can be cleaned in an instant. The external fabric is water-repellent, but a rain protector is also supplied just in case.
The Manhattan Mover 50 backpack holds a medium-level DSLR with a 70/200mm f2.8 lens attached and 5 lenses, flash and Premium CSC with a standard zoom lens attached and additional lens.
It also fits a 15.6” laptop and an iPad Pro 9.7 in a dedicated compartment and features handy back and top access.
The Manhattan Speedy 10 messenger fits a Premium CSC with a standard zoom lens attached and 2 additional lenses or an entry level DSLR with lens attached and 2 additional lenses. It also fits a 12” laptop and an iPad Pro 12.9” in a dedicated compartment. The Manhattan Speedy 10 messenger features an ergonomic stabilization strap that makes it comfortable and easy to use the bag on the move.
The Manhattan Changer 20 is an innovative 3-way shoulder bag that holds a premium CSC or entry-level DSLR with up a 70-200mm f2.8 lens attached and 2 additional lenses.
It also keeps a 15” laptop and an iPad Pro 9.7” safely stored in a dedicated compartment.
This bag easily transforms into a different type of carrying solution to fit your changing needs, at any time. It offers 3 carrying options – morphing from a shoulder bag to a backpack or a tote bag depending on your needs for the day. This smart city bag has all the pockets you need for your personal belongings too.
The Manfrotto Manhattan Collection is the go-to solution in which the love of photography and city lifestyles converge, with effortless comfort and appeal.
