Think Tank Photo Retrospective 7 Review

Recently ThinkTank Photo released the Retrospective 7 shoulder bag. I currently use the Retrospective 30 as my main go to shoulder bag on location photo shoots. What I personally look for in a bag is can it fit the hebrew trinity and is it built well.

First things first, this bag is built extremely well like all other ThinkTank Bags. The bags they make are made like no others that I have tried in the past, they are built by photographers for photographers.

Does the bag fit the hebrew trinity? The answer to that is yes it does. It fits my Nikon D4, Nikon 14-24 2.8, Nikon 24-70 2.8 and Nikon 70-200 2.8 VRII. Not only does it fit all of that gear but there is plenty of space for extra batteries, accessories and even and iPAD or Mac Book Air 11 inch. I wish I could squeeze in my 13 in Mac Book Pro but it just would not fit.

I was very surprised that such a small bag could fit so much and still break down to be so small. When I am traveling I like to travel light and still have a shoulder bag for photo shoots. You can not replace a shoulder bag when on a shoot, you can access all of your lenses quick opposed to back packs. What I like about this bag is I can empty it, flatten it and place it in the bottom of my ThinkTank Airport Security.

All and all this is a great option for a light yet sturdy bag for every day use. If you are looking for a bag to store one body from a pro body to a basic DSLR, a few lenses and accessories and an iPad this bag could be for you. Check out for all of your ThinkTank Photo Bag needs.
