Any chance we could get a picture of you wearing the R10 messenger style? I've see the R20 like this but like to see the shorter R10.

I will get pictures of that ASAP probably won't be until next week though.

For now, I'll be adding some gear profile pics to this thread:

I was going to get an R30 but based on what I have been reading it looks like an R20 is in my future. The hight is perfect and I will be able to work out of it like my beloved Domke F2.

Now just to decide on color.

I ordered mine from Adorama on May 3 and it is now May 19. TT has them but I called Adorama and they did not. Now they are gone for their holiday and won't be back in until Friday. I cancelled my order and just ordered it directly from TT. I'll have it no later than Monday...maybe sooner!


Anyone get it from Adorama yet?

I received another "backorder notification" on Friday May 21 saying they did not have them yet and had no estimate for delivery.

I switched my order to TT direct, although I will now have to pay for shipping. Using the referral link posted earlier will get you a bonus gift bag which sort of compensates for the additional shipping.

ThinkTank direct and upgraded the shipping to Priority, is what I did. Ordered Tues and got it Thursday. Got the Cable Management 20 as a bonus...nice. Love the RP20 in pinestone....Hope ThinkTank made enough because they have a real winner here, otherwise it will be out of stock in no time...

I guess I will have to switch my order to TT. I'm going for the 10 in black. Is the cable management bag better or the tag? I usually don't carry much cables. Hm.

I like the TT cable management bags, I have several. I use them for "support gear" and can travel with them in my camera bag, or in my suitcase if I don't have room.

They are useful for keeping track of the chargers, cables, card readers, etc. which I may not want to carry around all day in my bag. I can remove the non-photo stuff in one piece and leave it in the hotel room or car while I am out shooting. The clear sides make it easy to see what is in the bag without having to open it. Having it all together makes it easy to grab as I pack, and helps with not leaving something in the hotel room when I check out. I also have one packed as a computer support bag with charger, cables, network interface, flash drive, etc.

The pixel rocket cases are also great, but I already had several and could always use another cable bag. I don't know why the ID tag was so expensive, unless it had a recovery service/reward included in the cost.

Yes get the Cable management bag, its really useful. I ordered the 10 in black as well. The 10 is still a pretty large bag so I would not be surprised to see an even smaller version like an R5 in the future.

I already asked them about this. I even called it a "hypothetical," slimmer R5 for us ungripped SLR and micro 4/3 users. Was told there are no plans for this, and to look into UD 10/20 instead. But those are too Lowepro/boxy-like for me.

I guess that's my problem with Think Tank; they primarily cater to photojournalists who typically carry these ginormous cameras and f/2.8 zooms.

Hyt you may want to look into a Domke F-5xc. It has that same design style as the Retro 10 but smaller and lighter. So far its my favorite bag when I go with just a camera and extra lens and flash. I do like the Thinktank UD 20 as well. My R-10 is actually going to be my large bag.

Domke has also recently announced a new line of bags (F-831, F-832 and F-833) that might be worth looking at if the Retrospective line isn't what you're looking for.

Thanks for the suggestions - I actually ended up ordering another F-803 this afternoon. I've always hated the top stiffening bar in the ones I had before but as usual I'll be taking it to a nearby luggage repair shop to have it surgically removed.

Retrospective is the best looking camera bag I have seen in a long time, just can't decide if it will be 20 or 30. I'm a bit worried the 20 will be too small, like to carry more than just camera stuff like laptop, magazines plus plenty of space for my camera with 3 lenses and flash. But also space to grow as my gear will expand over the next few years.

Here are some video reviews of the bags that may have not been posted before:

the R20 review #2 could probably convince anyone to buy it.
