Englewood Camera now carries Crumpler!

Englewood Camera is pleased to announce a new camera bag product line from Crumpler. This Australian company got it’s start in the 1990’s by founder Stu Crumpler; Stu had a creative desire to create a great bag. In the early days, Crumpler made messenger bags for bike couriers–bags that could easily open and close without being taken off, and of bright, mismatched fabrics. This do-it-yourself bag company has evolved over time to offer photography/camera bags, laptop bags, backpacks, casual bags, and luggage. The Crumpler principles, however, have remained the same: “simplicity, a willingness to experiment, a big dose of humour – and a determination to make the best bag you can scissor from a single piece of fabric.”

Looking for a unique bag for your camera equipment? Crumpler offers a great selection of bags and straps with catchy names; check out the “3 Million Dollar Home,” the “Kashgar Outpost,” and straps such as “The Noose” and “Industry Disgrace” now available at Englewood Camera.

Crumpler offers durable bags with waterproof materials and fun colored fabrics. See images below for a peek at some of the bags now in stock.

Crumpler-3.5

The 4 Million Dollar Home, pictured above, is a slim courier-style bag that is a perfect fit for mirrorless cameras, including the Olympus OM-D and Fujifilm X-E1! This bag is available in Purple/Snot Green (pictured), Navy/Rust, or Gun Metal color combinations. Retail: $80.00

Crumpler-3

Looking for a bag to pack around your DSLR with one lens? The 3 Million Dollar Home, pictured above, is a great case to fir a Canon EOS Rebel T5i with lens, or a Nikon D5100 with lens, or your Sony A58 with a lens! This case is available in Navy/Rust (pictured), Purple/Snot Green, or Gun Metal/Black color combinations. Retail: $65.00

Crumpler-5

Crumpler’s Kashgar Outpost (above) is a fantastic shoulder bag designed for compact camera systems or DSLR systems. This bag is available in Small, Medium or Large; bring in your gear and see which size is the right fit for your camera and lenses! Made from a water resistant twill fabric, the Kashgar Outpost has a classic feel and comes in Midnight Blue (pictured), Rifle Green, or Brick. Retail: $120-$145

Crumpler-1

Crumpler makes a solution for folks not wanting to carry a traditional camera bag. Check out the Haven series–a protective insert that can easily fit your camera and an extra lens or two (depending on the size you pick). These durable inserts instantly turn your backpack or messenger bag into a camera bag, and come in Olive/Black (pictured), Red/Black, or Slate Gray/Black color combinations. Retail: $42-$60

Englewood Camera says farewell to an employee

Evan Carney has been an employee at Englewood Camera for the past ten years. After graduating from Colorado State University with a B.F.A. in Photography, Evan joined our staff and became Assistant Manager shortly thereafter. He’s handled our repair department for the past few years, including sensor cleanings. Recently, Evan headed back to school for his teaching license, and sadly is leaving our team to teach Art at O’Connell Middle School in Lakewood. We wish him the best of luck on his new adventure! His last day at the store is this Saturday; stop by to say farewell and give him your best wishes!
