Las Vegas, NV (January 7, 2008) -- National Geographic, a pioneer in the use of photography in achieving its mission of increasing world knowledge, announces seven new models to its highly successful Earth Explorer Camera Bag collection at CES 2008. Part of National Geographic's full line of photo and video support products and accessories, the Earth Explorer collection boasts an environmentally friendly design coupled with cutting-edge ergonomics and performance. The new bags and accessories, along with the entire Earth Explorer collection, will be showcased at the Bogen Imaging booth, #73810 in the Sands Expo & Convention Center.
The National Geographic Earth Explorer collection is an ideal blend of today's cutting-edge protective carrying technology and a traditional "explorer" look and feel. The collection mirrors National Geographic's dedication to exploration by providing ample room to carry cameras, accessories and personal belongings. The new additions to the Earth Explorer collection include three pouches, two camera straps, a small sling bag, and a large shoulder bag.
The Large Shoulder Bag (NG 2477, $125 street price) is ideal for photo and video gear, as well as carrying a notebook computer up to 17 inches. Its stylish design makes it perfect for carrying gear on a vacation or for use as a briefcase for daily commutes to the office. The Small Sling Bag (NG 4567, $45 street price) is designed for the comfortable and convenient carrying of a point-and-shoot camera or compact camcorder. The perfect solution for small point-and-shoot cameras, the Nano Pouch (NG 1147, $11 street price), Micro Pouch (NG 1148, $13 street price), and Little Pouch (NG 1149, $15 street price), also provide storage room for digital accessories such as batteries and memory cards. All pouches can be worn on a belt or over the shoulder with an included cotton strap.
Two new camera straps, the Travel and Adventure, offer a stylish accessory option for any photographer. The Travel Camera Strap (NG 3020, $11 street price) offers a camera strap that boasts the classic Earth Explorer style while the Adventure Camera Strap (NG 303, $19 street price) features the added benefit of media pockets.
In recognition of National Geographic's commitment to conservation, each bag in the Earth Explorer collection is manufactured from a variety of environmentally friendly, natural sourced material, including fibers such as hemp and cotton. All-metal, antique brass hardware not only enhance the image of the bags, but remove the need for plastic fasteners.
