Veer joins istock

“As part of VCG’s purchase of Corbis and partnership with Getty Images, we are pleased to welcome all Veer customers to iStock by Getty Images. Effective March 30, the Veer business and website will no longer be accessible and all Veer customers will enjoy the expanded benefits of iStock with a special offer.”

Merger: Kata and Manfrotto

Wow, I really liked Kata bags, for their versatility and design. Manfrotto has some nice, neat designs. I can’t wait to see the new bags!

Hopefully, they’ll come up with a dual body with lens and BG attached, backpack (3n1) style bag that’s a tad roomier than the the current 3n1 33. That would a thinktank bag off the top of my mind.
