Think Tank Photo's Upgraded Retrospective Shoulder Bags Feature Increased Photography Gear Security and Lighter Weight

When Think Tank Photo first released the Retrospective shoulder bag series, they took the photo industry by storm. Think Tank has now upped the ante with the Retrospective V2.0. While retaining the soft, form-fitting design, they are lighter than the original. For greater security, the Retrospective shoulder bags now feature a zippered opening under the main flap that tucks away when not in use. Each bag has a dedicated interior tablet or laptop pocket, luggage handle pass-through, and a compressible water bottle pocket. Think Tank also improved its innovative ''Sound Silencer'' closure, allowing photographers to work more quietly.

The Retrospective V2.0 shoulder bags come in five sizes:

  • Retrospective 5 V2.0 - Fits a standard DSLR or Mirrorless body with a 17-40mm f/4 lens attached and a 9'' tablet. Examples include a Canon 5DMIV with a 50mm f/1.8 attached, 24-70mm f/2.8, and an iPad Mini; or a Sony a7RIII with a 24-70mm f/4 attached, 16-35mm f/4, 55mm f/1.8, and an iPad Mini.
  • Retrospective 7 V2.0 - Fits a standard DSLR with a 24-70mm f/2.8 attached, 70-200mm f/2.8 unattached, flash, 10'' tablet, and a 13'' laptop. Examples include a Nikon D850 with 24-70mm f/2.8 attached, 70-200mm f/2.8, and a SB-5000 AFSpeedlight; or a DJI Mavic Pro drone, controller, batteries and accessories.
  • Retrospective 10 V2.0 - Fits a gripped DSLR with a 24-70mm f/2.8 attached, 10'' tablet, 12'' laptop, 70-200mm f/2.8 unattached, and a flash. Examples include a Nikon D5 with a 24-70mm f/2.8 attached, 70-200mm f/2.8 unattached, and a SB-5000 AFSpeedlight.
  • Retrospective 20 V2.0 - Holds a gripped DSLR with 70-200mm f/2.8 attached or a 300mm f/2.8 unattached, 24-70mm f/2.8, 10'' tablet, 12'' laptop, and a flash. Examples include a Nikon D5 with a 70-200mm f/2.8 attached, 14-24mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.8, and a SB-5000 AFSpeedlight.
  • Retrospective 30 V2.0 - Fits two gripped DSLRs with a 24-70mm f/2.8 and 16-35mm f/2.8 attached, 70-200mm f/2.8 unattached, and a 15'' laptop. Examples include two Nikon D5 bodies with a 24-70mm f/2.8 and 14-24mm f/2.8 attached, 70-200mm f/2.8 unattached, and an iPad.

''Reflecting on your past work helps you be more creative in the future,'' said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank’s President and lead designer. ''When we designed the original Retrospective shoulder bag series, we looked back on our personal experience for inspiration. We wanted to bring back the classic canvas look that is soft yet durable — but doesn’t look like a camera bag full of expensive gear. The Retrospective V2.0 series combines all our experience as photographers and product designers into a highly functional yet timeless camera bag.''
