If you would like to support this blog, or newschoolofphotography.com (NSOP), there are a few ways to do so.  The first would be to buy some prints from me.  ANY image you see on this site is available for sale.  The easiest way to order a print is to order a print with the link under the image in the blog posts.  If that doesn’t work for you, please use the contact page and let me know what you’re looking for.

Another very easy way to support either of my sites is to use my affiliate links.  I’m affiliated with B&H, Adorama, Amazon, ThinkTankPhoto, Mindshift and HostGator.  These are vendors that were my sources for quality products long before the affiliate options became available, so don’t think I’m pushing you towards them just for my gain.  I use these sites for my own gear all the time.  You can use those links to order anything they sell, so if you’re shopping at those sites for non photo related items, please fell free to use my links as well.  All you have to do is click the links above in bold to get to their site, then shop as you normally should and I’ll get the credit.

You can also use the banner links below:

You will also notice these banners throughout my gear review posts. I try to use affiliate links to fund this site.

  1. Hi Ben,
    Thanks for all your great gear reviews! I’m looking at the MindShift Gear BackLight 26L Backpack and wondering if you think I could fit a fiesol 3442 inside (18.9”)?

    The fiesol is about 1cm longer than the Davis & Sanford TR654C-36 (18.5”) that I believe you were using in your review.

    Based on the numbers, it looks like the tripod should fit, but I was just hoping to confirm before buying.

    I put the two links below. Thanks so much for any info you can provide.

    • David,
      Thanks for the kind words! Obviously I haven’t used that feisol so I can’t say for sure. From my review on the backlight with the other options I had on hand I think it would be very tight but will probably fit. “Fit” will come down to how much you want to work to get it in and out of the bag each time. The longer two options of the 4 I was using were 18.25″ and they needed help to get into the bag. The shorter options dropped right into that slot if that makes sense. Being that 1/2″ longer will make it take even more effort to slide it into the bag… Personally (without trying) I might guess that that could be a PITA long term but again it’ll come down to how you feel about the effort required and the extra time that will take. It’ll be tight/snug. Maybe you can buy the parts somewhere with a good return policy?
      Good Luck, and I’d love to know how it works out!
      Ben
