ThinkTank to UK?

I really need () a smaller bag that I can just take the camera out in, the smallest I have at the moment is like a damned suitcase. Was thinking about the ThinkTank digital holster 40, and I know some of you lot have a ThinkTank bags, but how are prices for shipping to the UK? I mean $69 seems a bargain (£35!) but surely shipping and import etc adds quite a mean amount on? What have you guys found?


Cheers

Jack

Re: ThinkTank to UK?

I've just ordered a Digital Holster 20 from Morris Photo. Not sure how the prices compare with importing....

Think tank photo Camera Accessories

P.S. $69 = £35 ??? Those were the days...

P.P.S. Morris's price is £44.53 for the one you want. Exchange rate is now about $1.45=£1, so $69 would be £47.59.

Re: ThinkTank to UK?

Thanks Paul, looks like I haven't been following the markets well enough
Still a decent price though, and I reckon I'd get quite a lot of use out of it. Was annoying carrying my camera with the nifty on around Oxford with the 18-70 in my coat pocket

Re: ThinkTank to UK?

I've never been one for carrying around a huge bag full of equipment, and on walkabouts I used the Tamron 18-200 a lot, with just a Lowpro TLZ1 holster case. My new Tamron 18-270 (+ 40D without battery grip ) won't quite fit in the TLZ1, so I'm Hoping that the Digital Holster 20 will fit the bill. If you have a camera with a vertical grip (built-in or added) the DH 40 is the one to go for.

The price seems reasonable from Morris - I'd get it before the pound drops any more!

Re: ThinkTank to UK?

Yeah, that's what I thought RE the grip, it's actually slightly larger than the D3 () so I think the bigger size is best. Unfortunately don't have a 300 f/4 that I can keep the hood in place on to put in the DH50, so the 40 looks best

EDIT: And I would buy it now, but depends how much money I have left after the new bike

Re: ThinkTank to UK?

I've just got a Lowepro Nova 170AW for my #2 / light kit (D70s + 18-200vr) and am very pleased with it. Will be doing review as soon as I've got time. They appear to do a similar sized bag - slightly smaller - that is cheaper (just been replaced by 170?) but I wanted the exta depth to accomodate the length of the lens.

Re: ThinkTank to UK?

I like the Lowepro Nova series. The old Nova 3, 4 and 5 have (I think) been replaced by 160, 170 and 180.

I've recently bought a ThinkTank holster case and it's generally OK, but I prefer Lowepro. For example, Lowepro zip tags are finished neatly with a plastic mouldlng on the ends of the strings, whereas the ThinkTank ones are just knotted which looks a bit cheap.

Re: ThinkTank to UK?

It's arrived already! Great service, looks to be just what I wanted, plus a free copy of 'Photography Monthly' fairly hefty mag as well. Nice one

EDIT: Can't work out the weird flap on the side tho....seems to have a plastic fingery type thing underneath....what!?
EDIT2: Belt attachment maybe? Some mention of it attaching to their 'speed belt or any other dress belt". hmm.

Re: ThinkTank to UK?

The plastic fingery thing slots into something on the Speed Belt to stop the case from sliding around on the belt. Or you can choose not to slot it in, so it will slide on the belt.

(If all else fails, read the ???? )

Re: ThinkTank to UK?

My ThinkTank holster case came with some instructions or a diagrammy thing that showed how the fingery thing fitted into the Speedbelt thing, I think. Or maybe I dreamt it.

(D'you know that 'dreamt' is the only English word ending in 'mt'. It's worth being a member here just for snippets like that. )
