New products on display at the American International Toy Fair, held in N
Small camera, laptop and portable A/V case maker Naneu Pro introduced three new portable storage lines at International CES here earlier this month. These include Goombah, Correspondent and two digital pouches called Gogo-Pac and Gogo-Sac.
The large main compartment of Goombah will hold a pro SLR with up to 500mm lens, plus six to 10 other lenses, one or two extra camera bodies and flashes. The padded camera insert can be removed to use the case for general travel needs. Inside the lid of the main compartment are three small pockets and six large zippered pockets for filters and other items. The front of the Goombah features a large, padded compartment for laptops and two small padded pockets for accessories. Suggested retail is $299.
Correspondent bags in four models focus on functionality, durability and accessibility, said the Orlando, Fla.-based Naneu Pro.
The Correspondent 400 is a true professional's bag, which will carry two pro DSLRs, each with a lens attached. Suggested retail is $105.
The Correspondent 300 accommodates two SLRs with lenses attached and still has room enough for five or six more lenses and a flash. Two large end pockets hold film and supplies. Suggested retail is $84.
Holding two SLRs with lenses attached, the Correspondent 200 also has room for three additional lenses, plus a flash. The two end pockets provide space for film and batteries. Suggested retail is $66.
The Correspondent 100 is big enough to hold a pro SLR with a zoom lens attached, plus three to five additional lenses and flash, but is compact enough to shoulder at crowded events. Suggested retail is $53.
Digital pouches, such as the company's new Gogo-Pac and Gogo Sac, have gotten much smaller and more colorful, to match the same trends in digital cameras. These two cases offer protection and functionality for mini digital point-and-shoot cameras, and feature a wide-open design and front pocket to hold extra memory cards or batteries. The cases are available in six floral print designs, as well as basic black. Suggested retails are $8 for the Gogo-Pac and $9 for the Gogo-Sac.
All new Naneu Pro storage products will be available in March.
