Think Tank puts you and your laptop in the dark
If you've ever had to work an outdoor shoot in a blazing hot sun and faced the dilemma of firing up your laptop, Think Tank Photo's new Pixel Sunscreen 2.0 will be your best friend.
This is not your old "throw a poncho over the head and shoulders approach" by a long shot.
The Pixel Sunscreen 2.0 serves as a portable laptop workstation that will not only shade your laptop screen from the sun and the elements, but also serve as a mini-digital-darkroom, complete with openings for cords and cables in the side and back, inside pockets to hold pens, pencils, and other accessories, and movable clip for hanging printed information.
The Sunscreen handles laptops from 12 to 17 inches when in use, but when the job is done, you can quickly collapse it to an easy to store one inch thick circular carrying bag no larger than an average small pizza (14" diameter). When you arrive on location and need the Sunscreen, you will be able to use its spring-loaded design to pop it to full working dimensions within seconds.
This is an upgrade to a previous model from Think Tank, which according to their press release carries a 95% re-design based on input from professional photographers with experience using the product in the field. Think Tank's founder and CEO Doug Murdoch said the previous model did not draw complaints, but after collecting the responses he did find room to optimize the Sunscreen for field conditions based on user experience. The result is the Pixel Sunscreen 2.0.
The Sunscreen 2.0 packs all this functionality into a $69 USD purchase.
