VANGUARD Camera Bags Earn Prestigious TIPA Award: UP-Rise Series Named 2010 Best Photo Bag
Whitmore Lake, Mich. – VANGUARD, one of the global leaders in photo-video accessories, today announced its UP-Rise Series camera bags have earned a prestigious TIPA award.
The best imaging products of 2010 were voted on by the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) General Assembly held in early April in New York City. The editors of about thirty of the top photo magazines from around the world selected the best imaging products of the year.
UP-Rise Series bags were voted the "Best Photo Bag 2010" for its innovative ability to expand in size and its versatile use.
UP-Rise Series, available in messenger, zoom, shoulder, sling and backpack styles, breaks the mold of camera bag standards with its innovative ability to expand in size to accommodate changing lens and gear needs. One easy zipper motion enables expansion; it shrinks back down when the extra room is no longer needed. UP-Rise has a sleek, sporty design with an orange interior, making it easy to spot loose gear. Other features include removable rain coats and multiple pockets for extra memory cards and lens caps.
Messenger bags are ultra-padded and double as camera/lens gear bags or regular messenger bags for toting office paperwork. They hold a laptop and have completely customizable interiors with super soft, thick padding. Their Rapid Access System features top and front retrieval points, so users never miss the action from fumbling over their stowed cameras. Protective tabs prevent shoulder strap hooks from scratching gear when retrieving it from and returning it to the bag.
UP-Rise sling bags enable users to retrieve their camera and shoot in less than six seconds with their Quick Zip back and side access points.
UP-Rise bags are available at street prices of $49-149 (USD). More information about UP-Rise is available at www.vanguardworld.com. More information about the award is available on www.tipa.com.
