Day two of #WPPI2013 was just as energetic as the opening day of the showroom. Here are two of our favorite products from the floor:
Manfrotto Klyp iPhone Case
Manfrotto’s first accessory for an iPhone will appeal to those who use their iPhone for shooting video. It allows a user to stand an iPhone on a flat surface or mount it to a tripod. Other accessories can be attached including a soft light portrait LED lighting unit. Currently the Klyp only fits an iPhone 4S but a case for an iPhone 5 will be introduced soon. Details can be found on Manfrotto’s website.
Lowepro Flipside Sport Backpack
It might not look high-tech, but this new lightweight backpack uses top-of-the-line materials that are strong and also weather-resistant. The interior compartments for cameras and gear can be removed in a single unit and be replaced with another one holding made for different gear or left out entirely so the backpack can be used to carry non-photographic gear. Lowepro says it’s an ideal backpack for adventurous photographers shooting out in the desert or in bad weather conditions. Details can be found on Lowepro’s website.
