Changed to a smaller camera system? Then it makes sense to rethink how you carry it about. A bag designed for big DSLRs is not going to carry smaller gear as well as one specifically designed for the job. This Manfrotto NX backpack will take a mirrorless body and several lenses, with space for personal bits and bobs, including a laptop up to 15 inches in size.
For years, lens makers have been abusing the word ‘macro’, adding it to any lens with a half-decent close focusing distance. But macro should mean that a lens can focus close enough to give a life-size or 1:1 magnification.

It specialises in building computers – desktops as well as laptops – for gaming, business use and imaging.
It’s a brave company that tries to do something different in the photography bag market. Most of us have been carting the same basic designs around for years. There’s a reason for that though: if they stop your kit from getting smashed to pieces, or soaking wet, and if the zips work, most of us are happy, right?

Go to any travel hub and you’ll see that almost every case will be of the wheelie variety, but not all wheelies are created equal. Most are two wheels and of course two is better than none at all, but they are pulled along and that can be hard work compared to the four-wheel jobs that can be really easily pushed as you walk along smooth floors, and then pulled when you get to carpeted areas.
