We’ve got some very exciting news for all you Street Hunters readers! We’re delighted to announce the arrival of the first ever official Street Hunters product collaboration, the COSYSPEED Camslinger Streetomatic Street Hunters Special Edition! We’ve partnered up with COSYSPEED, manufacturers of the ‘The Fastest Camera Bag in the World’ for a very special street photographers’ camera bag. Read on for more…
COSYSPEED are a German company producing camera bags and accessories especially for mirrorless cameras. They are best known for the Camslinger, a pioneering mirrorless camera bag that can be worn as hip holster, allowing for quick access to your camera. We first reviewed the Camslinger back in 2014. You may already be familiar with COSYSPEED as the sponsor of our Hamburg and Istanbul Street Hunts, or you may even have been the lucky recipient of a Camslinger as a prize in one of our monthly theme contests.
The COSYSPEED Camslinger Streetomatic
The Camslinger Streetomatic is the latest evolution of the Camslinger, designed specifically for street and travel photographers. We reviewed a pre-production model of the Streetomatic for street photography last summer, and we said it had the potential to be “a great street photography bag”. Compared to the regular Camslinger, the Streetomatic features two side pockets – ideal for batteries, memory cards, or even a smartphone, and particularly useful if you are using a larger camera like a DSLR with a small prime lens that will occupy most of main compartment of the bag. As well as being pretty robust, with a tough nylon body and plates to protect against bumps, the Streetomatic also has an included rain cover, which will come in handy if you’re the sort who likes to practice street photography in rain and bad weather. Also included is a Fingercamstrap 10, a velcro loop strap that allows you to grab your camera with your index finger.
The Special Edition Street Hunters Camslinger Streetomatic
Street Hunters has joined with COSYSPEED to release a special limited edition Camslinger Streetomatic to complement the regular COSYSPEED colourways of blue, black and khaki. The Camslinger Streetomatic Streethunters Edition is a limited production run of black Camslinger Streetomatics that feature an embroidered Street Hunters logo. Only 100 have been made, and, as our first official product collaboration, it’s the first camera bag ever with the Street Hunters logo on it! You can find full details of the Camslinger Streetomatic size, specifications, and what’s in the box, on the COSYSPEED site.
The Camslinger Streetomatic Street Hunters Edition includes a Donation to a Children’s Charity
€10 from the sale of every Street Hunters edition of the Camslinger Streetomatic will be donated to the Terre des Hommes children’s aid organisation. Based in Germany, the projects of Terre des Hommes help unaccompanied young refugees, many of whom have been displaced by the ongoing war in Syria. One project Terre des Hommes are involved with is XENION, a Berlin centre training mentors who can provide long term support, counselling and a safety net for these young people as they adjust to life in a new country.
