In other news, Saunders, a division of The Tiffen Company, debuts its series of five precision rotary trimmers for the professional and photo enthusiast. The versatile Saunders Professional M3 Series Trimmers can trim delicate laminates, films, and photographic and digital printing papers, as well as heavier cardboard and litho plates.
The baseboard boasts all-metal construction. Each of the new models has a hand-contoured blade housing with an exclusive Comfort Grip that makes repetitive work less fatiguing. The blade housing covers the cutting blade completely, making Saunders Trimmers the safest choice for schools, darkrooms, self-service print stations, and busy, high-production labs. The trimmer’s cutting blade is self-sharpening to provide years of precision cutting. Its extruded aluminum alignment scale is factory-locked to be perfectly square to the blade edge. On the alignment scale, measurements are provided in both inches and centimeters and the trimmer’s baseboard is printed with a registration grid laid out in both ¼” and 1" squares. The slide guide supplied with the M3 Series trimmers ensures accurate same-size cuts without repetitive measuring.
Model sizes range from 12" to 48", indicating the maximum length that can be cut. Saunders Professional M3 Series Trimmers are backed by a five-year warranty.
Additionally, Domke, a division of The Tiffen Company, has recently added the new F-808 Messenger Bag to its Domke Classic Collection.
The Domke F-808 Messenger bag is rugged, roomy, lightweight and versatile. Made of soft, supple, heavyweight cotton canvas, this material breathes, minimizing the risk of condensation, an important feature with today’s electronics. Its smooth, soft texture is friendly to both equipment and clothing. The fabric is naturally water-resistant, and includes a repellent treatment in the dying process for an extra measure of protection. As your Domke Bag ages, it softens and wears like a favorite pair of jeans.
The patented padded insert system is the heart of any Domke bag and F-808 includes a removable insert that holds up to a 15” laptop. Adjustable closures on the main flap allow you to easily close even the most “overstuffed” bag. Indestructible steel snap hooks secure the main weather flap.
With plenty of room for accessories, there are additional pockets to store all your laptop accessories, pens, business cards, cell phone, and more.
Twin tracks of high-friction rubber are woven into the thickest, toughest cotton webbing so that it clings to the shoulder and runs completely around the bag. Most of the Domke bags feature street-tough steel snaphooks (a Domke hallmark) with welded steel rings, as the primary closure. It’s the toughest, most reliable, pilfer-proof yet quick-operating closure short of a padlock. Available in Black, Sand and Olive.
Domke bags are the preferred choice of the White House Photographer’s Association.
