In the not so distant past, video and stills photography used to be separate strands of the imaging world. There were videographers and there were photographers, there was very little crossover.
The advent of digital imaging has converged those technologies to a point where broadcast quality video can be created on cameras primarily designed for stills. The upshot of this is more and more photographers working in the video field using either DSLRs, Mirrorless Compact systems or even investing in pro-level camcorders.
Carrying this equipment, however, can be a problem. Dedicated camcorders can be quite large and cumbersome whilst stills cameras are often only efficient as video cameras when they have rigs and focus wheels bolted on. This is where the ThinkTank Workhorse comes in!
The problem with the latter is that most photographic camera bags have not been designed to hold a DSLR with a rig and rack focus attached. The photographer would need to assemble the rig on location, wasting valuable time.
To this end, Thinktank have bought out a range of video cases designed with the modern photographer in mind. They have sent us at Lightstalking the Video Workhorse 19 to take a look at.
