Stylish and secure: Manfrotto unveils a pair of Pro Light RedBee backpacks

There are a tremendous number of photo backpacks on the market, providing carrying solutions for any equipment combinations you'd care to imagine. For working professional photographers however, a continuous issue is that of space and weight, areas in which pro-level bags often fail to deliver effectively. Due to the larger size of professional lenses and camera bodies, the backpacks themselves are frequently designed with large external dimensions, while padding and construction materials can give these models a significant empty weight.  

The RedBee-310 and RedBee-110 aim to address this problem. Both new backpacks make use of a new compact design philosophy, to make it easier for advanced photographers and videographers to pack and transport their gear with ease.
