Case Logic Kontrast DSLR Shoulder Bag

Case Logic KontrastWell, I had another chance to try out some Case Logic products, and was pleased to receive the Kontrast DSLR Shoulder Bag. I have to admit, when it arrived, I thought I had received some kind of lunchbox or some kind of old-school binoculars case. I don’t know how many of my readers got that reference, if you will even call it that.

The zipper on top is made to open up and you can insert your DSLR camera. Then there is a place for the camera as well as a lens with this thing that looks like it could hold a drink. You can even take out the lens holder, as Velcro is the only thing that keeps it in there.

Then there are some terrific pockets for whatever. There is one on each side, one in the front, and there is even a pocket on the lid itself.

Now, carrying this around could feel like you are carrying a heavy burden, but it fortunately comes with a strap. You can know that it will be safe, and the DuraBase gives a sense of security to all you photographers out there.

You can get the Kontrast DSLR Shoulder Bag on the Case Logic site for about $79.95.

Acase Citta Slide-In Protective Case for the iPhone 5

Acase CittaClearly there is a huge market for iPhone 5 covers and cases, and I usually try and report on the ones that are different.

I have reported on the Lifeproof, Otterbox, and other iPhone 5 cases like the ones from SEIDO. Most of these cases are pretty ordinary, and snap on in two places.

What makes the Acase Citta different is that it is the iPhone slides right in through the side. This does free up the buttons on the side, but it does stay in place on the phone.

The back side of the phone has an interesting texture that will stay in your hand, unless you coat your hand with vegetable oil or something. This case is certainly tough enough to protect the iPhone 5, while remaining light enough to not to burden the user.

I had a chance to try out the Acase Citta case for the iPhone 5, but I wasn’t able to find it on their main site. I did find it on Amazon for $19.99.
