Ponte Leather Camera Lift-Strap
The Camera Lift-Strap is one of those ideas that’s
so obvious, you’re surprised no one ever thought
of it before (for the record, maybe someone did—
we haven’t rummaged through the patent files).
The Lift-Strap alleviates neck strain by shifting
the weight of your camera to a backpack (not
included). Two versions of the strap are made
from leather, while four others are made of 100
percent cotton with weather-resistant nylon
stitching. Both feature solid brass components
with anti-oxide finishes. The leather straps are
sold in solid black or black with red trim. The
canvas straps are available in blue, red, light blue
and burnt orange.
With Epson’s newest 17-inch SureColor P5000,
you can create color prints that will resist fading
for over 160 years. The printer uses a new 200mL
UltraChrome HDX 10-color pigment ink set with
new orange and green inks. The black inks are 1. 5
times denser than the prior generation for a wider
contrast ratio. The P5000’s resin encapsulation
technology has also been improved to deliver
better gloss uniformity and sharper images. The
printer can auto-switch between a high-capacity
front paper cassette and a power-driven roll
media feeder (included). Using roll media, you can
crank out panoramas up to 100 feet in length—
impressing friends and enraging roommates.
There’s also a front feed straight path for fine-art
sheet media up to 1.5mm thick. Joining the printer
is a free Print Layout utility, which will work with any
model in the SureColor series.
