To accommodate the changing needs of full-time photographers always on the road, Booq has released the Boa Flow Graphite, the latest addition to their line of professional camera bags. The redesigned Boa Flow Graphite offers more features than its predecessor, but doesn’t cost much more. 

This revision of the Boa Flow was especially made for the traveling photographer in mind: it’s lighter, easier to adjust, and contains more compartments to stash your smaller items, like smartphones, wallets, pens, and papers. It provides another level of safety to your gear by utilizing a water-repellent coating combined with a ballistic nylon exterior, giving it the ability to withstand the harshest weather. For added protection, the bag is equipped with a reflective rain cover to make yourself visible to others while in low-light situations.

The Boa Flow’s interior is soft and flexible, giving you the option of collapsing either the main or bottom compartments to make room for your equipment. There’s enough space for your DSLR, lenses, mobile devices, and laptop (up to 17 inches). Side zippered pockets add a lot of options for keeping small items safely tucked away; the bag even has a tiny pouch toward the bottom of the strap if you need to grab something on the fly, like an extra battery or memory card.

Bring along your favorite headphones and secure it using a strap at the top of the bag’s main compartment. Boa Flow’s back compartment has waterproof zippers to keep your laptop dry, and a soft fabric lining protect it from scratches. There’s an ergonomic strap with three different adjustment points, to let users choose how loose or snug they need it to be.

Like other Booq bags, the Boa Flow uses the Terraling system, which consists of a hard tag fitted with a unique serial number that can be used to return your bag to you, should you lose it (if the person who finds it is honest and considerate, that is).

The Boa Flow Graphite bag costs $225 and is available via Booq’s website and various U.S. retailers.

Best Camera Deals: Save on Canon, Panasonic, Nikon, and GoPro

Whether you're looking for the best digital cameras or the best travel cameras, there are a ton of options out there, sometimes too many options, especially for those who aren't familiar with the photography world. Luckily, we've done a lot of legwork for you and collected a range of great camera deals across the spectrum, so even if you want something more sports-oriented, like a GoPro, there are a couple of deals for those too. So, let's jump right into it.
Today's Best Camera Deals
One of our favorite deals is the Canon EOS Rebel T7 going for $400, as it's one of the better DSLR cameras on the market, and it has a reasonably budget-friendly price on it, making it a great starter camera. Of course, if you've been in the game for a while and are looking for a powerful upgrade, the Sony Alpha 7R IV is one of the best full-frame cameras on the market, and while it still costs a hefty $3,200, that's still $300 off the usual $3,500 price tag. That said, if you're looking for something more portable and action-oriented, you can't go wrong with the GoPro HERO11 Black Mini, although if you're a professional content creator, the GoPro HERO9 Black 5K is probably the one to go for instead.

Do I Need a DSLR or a Mirrorless Camera?
Like most things, this really depends on what you're trying to do. Mirrorless cameras have fewer internal moving parts, which generally means they can capture images quicker, so if you're taking pictures of action-packed stuff like sports or animals in the wilderness, a mirrorless camera is a great option. On the other hand, DSLR cameras are great for low-light conditions and are great for anything from portraits to landscapes. DSLRs are also cheaper and have much better battery life, as well as having a decade or two worth of lenses to choose from.
