Product Research


Overview: The Think Tank Photo Retrospective 5 is a soft-sided shoulder bag for a standard-sized DSLR or Micro Four-Thirds system. The Retrospective series is designed to not look like a camera bag, with a simple Pinestone-colored exterior that lets you blend into your surroundings. It has a large main flap with large hook-and-loop fasteners to secure the bag's contents. The wide, fully-adjustable canvas strap features a movable non-slip pad that you can position where it's needed.

Dimensions: The Retrospective 5 is sized to fit standard-sized DSLRs such as the Canon 5D, or Nikon D610 or D7100 with prime or small zoom lenses attached, plus an additional lens. It can also be used for Micro Four-Thirds systems, such as the Olympus OM-D E-M5 with several lenses. The dimensions of the bag are:

Interior Exterior Weight
Width: 9.5"
Height: 7.8"
Depth: 4.5"
Width: 10"
Height: 8.5"
Depth: 6"
2.3 pounds

Materials: The Retrospective 5 is made of sand-washed 100% cotton canvas, with nickel-plated metal hardware and sturdy YKK RC Fuse zippers. All exterior fabric has a durable water repellant coating, and the underside has a polyurethane coating for superior water resistance. The inside features silver-toned nylon, along with a polyurethane-backed Velex liner and closed cell foam dividers.

Features: The Retrospective 5 has the following features:

  • The exterior is very simple with a large main flap and hook-and-loop closures.
  • For silent operation, the main flap includes "Sound Silencers", which cover the hook-and-loop closures to eliminate the loud "ripping" sound when opening the bag.
  • Under the main flap, a clear business card pocket is included for identification and storage of spare cards.
  • Two collapsible nylon pockets are included on each side of the main compartment. These pockets are tall enough to accommodate most flash units or other accessories.
  • Three movable dividers (2 attached, 1 unattached) let you customize the main compartment as you desire.
  • The front pocket is expandable, and can be used to carry a regular size DSLR body.
  • A large flat pocket on the back of the bag can be used to carry maps, owner's manuals, or other documentation.
  • The adjustable carrying handle lets you grab the bag and go. The handle is removable if desired.
  • Webbing loops on both sides can be used to attach small modular pouches or used with a carabiner to clip on accessories.
  • A 2x polyurethane-coated, seam-sealed nylon rain cover is included to protect your gear when the weather gets rough. It is stored in the outer side pocket.
