New Packs And Boxes – New Position In The Shop – Same Great Products

Here’s a problem for shop assistants: shoppers…

The answer to this is simple: we’ll all blame the manufacturers…

We’ve all been to a supermarket to pick up a familiar packet of something; noodles, or cheese, or marzipan mortar bombs. And we’ve gotten increasingly frustrated at trying to find the goods in the myriad of products on offer. Whatever it is, it isn’t where it was…the shop assistants have moved it, the rats.

And when we go and berate them, they point out that it is in exactly the same place that it always was. But the manufacturers have changed the packaging. No-one is really happy but the world goes on.

 

 

This is the case with the superb line of camera straps made by Black Rapid. We’ve been selling them for ages from a rack at the middle back of the Stirling Street shop in packets with pictures of happy owners on the front. If you have been circling the shop looking for these recently you will have become increasingly frustrated.

 

 

Now they are in the front between the Leica and Fujifilm and Olympus cabinets. And the boxes with the straps are ever so much more sophisticated now – a graphic designer has gotten to work on the packaging. This post is to alert you to the new appearance of several favourites; the Curve, the Hybrid, and the Street.

Still the same great flexibility, ease of draw, and security for your cameras and lenses, and particular stability for larger rigs – the bigger straps will not walk over your chest as you run about or draw the camera up and down.

Still the great favourite of photojournalists and street shooters. And pack shooters…
