Henry's is having a sale on the Think Tank Retro line, and I want to get the Retro 20
It comes in two colours, black and pinestone. Both look unnassuming, to me, but I spend a lot of my shoots in locations where thousands of dollars worth of equipment are stolen fairly consistently throughout the summer (local national horse shows = lots of expensive tack & equipment left unguarded and the grounds are open to the public...sad but happens all the time.)
I would never let my bag leave my hip, of course, but I'm wondering which colour is the least obnoxious / least noticible. I can see positives and minuses for both colours.
Black would be the obvious choice I think, but at the same time I feel like its become a staple now for camera bags to be "primarily" black in colour. A pinestone one is a unusual colour, and also looks like "an old bag" - and then at the same time while you are noticing all of this, you have "noticed" the pinestone bag.
Which colour would you turn to and why?
At the end of the day I'll still be walking around with a big white telephoto lens in my hand, which naturally draws attention anyway, but I'm thinking of the times when I'm not holding my camera and just carrying the bag across my chest.
