Naneu would like to welcome Dick Pratt as our new Friend of Naneu!

A number of his photographs have showed up in publications and on the covers of a few national magazines‚ Cycle Age, Specialty and Custom Dealer, and Photophile Magazine.
What an excellent piece of equipment the Naneu U120 bag is! I have several Naneu bags and the U120 has become my favorite. With a minor change to the configuration of the dividers, I am able to get two Nikons, 5 lenses and a couple of flashes loaded into it. Plus, there is plenty of room for the other accessories, like flash cards, reflector/diffuser discs, a cable release, an extra jacket, a laptop, and more. Everything is easily accessible and that can be important when you need a camera and/or a lens NOW !
Professional photographer Carl Battreall, one of our beloved Friends of Naneu, explains why he likes the Correspondent C-9.
The majority of my photography takes place in remote wilderness areas throughout Alaska. I usually travel by foot, skis or bike, so it is important that I keep both my camera gear and outdoor gear to a minimum. When the weight counts I usually carry one body and a lens. For my current book project on Alaska's Chugach State Park, I am using a Sony 900 and a Sony CZ 24-70mm lens. Not lightest or most compact system but the quality and durability of this combo is hard to beat.
The New York Times recently reviewed our Sahara 217F. This is what they had to say in their own words.
FRAGILE camera gear demands ample protection, particularly when shooting pictures outside.
"Cameras today and lenses are expensive investments," said Brian Markman, sales manager of the pro photo division of B & H, a large photographic equipment store in New York. "You're not going to put it into a regular backpack or a sports bag."
