Clever Canon Bag

Designspiration user Arbuzov found an image of this creative Canon bag which appears to be an advertisement for the Eos 500D. I’m assuming it is an old bag considering the 500D was released back in 2009. I wish they had taken the photo with the bag around someone’s neck, as that would have completed the illusion.

Underwater Housing for your iPhone

This yet to be named underwater camera housing is designed for an iPhone 4 or 4s. I was unaware there was demand for such a product, but considering how widespread the iPhone camera is being used, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. The handles are specially designed so that you don’t drop your phone underwater, and the housing is rated to 100 feet deep in salt water.They are currently trying to raise funds on Kickstarter where $399 will get you a limited edition Mocean Armor “Pro Kit”, assuming they meet their fundraising goal of course.

Weekly Photo Links

We`re not able to post every story on our website, so every Sunday, we will list some interesting photography related links.

Blink Lens Caps Are Colourful

A company called Blink is trying to bring colourful lens caps into the world. They are currently trying to raise $55,000 so they can begin production, but unfortunately, it doesn’t look like they are getting a lot of support. If you like the idea, feel free to contribute to their project. Remember that all pledges are returned in the event that their funding goal is not met.

The Folding Tripod

Whether you are a traveling photographer, or just someone who carries their tripod around with them at all times, the Folding Tripod might be a good accessory to have. It’s light weight, and it can be assembled or folded up in a matter of seconds. It comes with a standard tripod mount, and retails for $49. Not a bad price for a tripod.

New Nikon SB-910 AF Speedlight

Nikon recently announced the new SB 910 speedlight. It should be available sometime in December. You can pre-order one today for $549.00 on Amazon.com. More details below and as well as a link to Nikon’s product overview.

Mobislyder is a Moving Track for Camera Phones

Since there are so many smart phones capable of taking photographs, as well as video, we shouldn’t be surprised to see accessories geared towards these devices. The mobislyder is a small track which allows you to easily create smooth movements while filming. It comes with 5 different mounts, so chances are it will accommodate your phone no matter what the make or model. It costs about $135 and shipping starts December 12th, 2011.

EZ Steady DSLR Stabilizer

The EZ Steady is a stabilizer for your DSLR or camera phone. The rig stabilizes itself via an arm with two adjustable counterweights. If you watch the video below, it appears to work incredibly well, which would explain why they have already generated 700% of their goal on Kickstarter. If you pledge $225 (plus s&h), you will get an EZ Steady for $100 less than the expected retail price.

Black Friday Deals!

Black Friday is in full swing, and this year, even the Canadian stores are getting in on the action. If you are looking to buy some equipment, or are thinking of buying some photography related presents for Christmas, this weekend is a great time to shop. We’ve listed the stores with sales below.

The iPhone Lens Dial

If you’re the type who’s always taking photos with your camera phone, then you might be interested in the iPhone Lens Dial. The case has 3 lenses to rotate into position, allowing for quick lens changes. The three lenses are a Wide Angle, a Telephoto and a Fisheye. It’s quite pricey at $249, but if that’s what you want to spend your hard earned money on, then good on ya.
