PMA 2010 Report
Belkin presents three new sleeves - Vue, Max, and Grip to protect your new Apple iPad while you’re on the move. These 10-inch sleeves are designed with reinforced panels to fully protect your Apple iPad touch screen from scratches, while still offering storage for other media devices such as an Apple iPhone, media reader, or earbuds. The Apple iPad user is one who is moving from place to place, so we’ve designed our cases to protect the device from this movement and activity. People will be using their Apple iPad tablet often to get online, so they’ll need easy access to them and, similarly, they’ll need their case to be gripable but also protective.
Crumpler, the well-known bag manufacturer, presented its line of camera bags in its very own way, as we should be used to by now. I made the effort to try and read some press releases on the Crumpler website, however; after 10 minutes I stopped searching. The navigation and trendy media communication drove me mad. I gave up, thinking that I too have finally fallen victim to the generation gap. Coming back to Crumpler's presentation of its camera bags line at the PMA 2009; some kind of paper castle hid the wide array of colorful bags, some of which were filled with rolls of toilet paper (?!). As I said; I don't seem to get the point, however; Crumpler considers its clientele smart enough to know that a Crumpler bag is actually meant to store a camera…
Neither water nor sand or hand covered in suntan lotion at the beach will now endanger the life of your personal cell phone. Should your boat capsise, your cell phone will swim on the surface, ready for that life saving call. Ewa-Marine Handy & Safe cell phone pouches are absolutely waterproof and come with a handy belt clip (only the smaller units for light weight phones) and a lanyard for easier carrying. Hearing and speaking is unhindered by the pouch (we measured a quality loss of 5% when using the phone inside the pouch). The Handy & Safe pouches are made in our factory in Germany and adhere to the same quality standards we expect from our camera and camcorder housings.
Lowepro, a product design company that builds protective gear for photography equipment and portable electronics, announces the launch of its newest toploading camera bag series. Toploader Pro AW is built for the pro who requires fast access, agility and flexibility while on assignment. The contoured, asymmetrical shape of Toploader Pro AW follows the lines of a pro digital SLR camera for a snug, protective fit. Complementing this lean profile is the side opening with easy-grip access; the camera sits sideways making it easy to grab, shoot and put back. Lowepro’s quick-release buckle allows the photographer to close the bag without zipping it, enabling fast access plus security while on the move.
ZCover announced that its versatile, resilient and user friendly new iSAglove cases for Apple's iPhone are now shipping. zCover’s iSAglove design is available in four functional combos and focuses on intuitive usability while offering protection for the Apple iPhone in its fullest form. The iSAglove will first be released in five zCover ice series colors: blue, purple, grey, pink, & clear, each one designed to work seamlessly with Apple iPhone's light sensor. The iSAglove design is a perfect fit for every feature of the Apple iPhone; that’s because it was designed from a real active Apple iPhone. zCover’s iSAglove for Apple Iphone is available in four functional combination packages.
iSkin announced the availability of the iSkin revo, the company's long-anticipated protective skin for the Apple iPhone. Designed as a complete protective solution, the revo includes a silicone protector, a touch-compatible privacy film and a ViSOR, an ultra-clear polycarbonate scratch resistant screen guard for the large Apple iPhone screen. Research studies have shown that the average mobile phone can contain substantial amounts of bacteria. The iSkin revo for the Apple iPhone features a premium silicone material with an embedded anti-microbial agent that protects the product by inhibiting the growth of microbes.
