'Agua'

 

 

 

Missing a photgraphic opportunity is NOT an option with the AGUA - a revolutionary quick-draw storm-proof camera-carrier from “miggo”

 

 

 

A year after the Kickstarter campaign of the first "miggo" -  the revolutionary camera carrier that swept thousands of enthusiastic supporters, the dynamic young company returns again to Kickstarter to introduce 

"AGUA" 

 

- a new line of innovative camera carriers resistant to all weather conditions, 

designed for both professional photographers and serious amateurs.

 

 

Having completed field-tests and a review of the first Miggo designs a year ago, when Rafy (one of the founders of Miggo) got in contact about the new camera carrier - I was keen to try one out. Being a landscape and extreme sports photorapher, the idea of a camera-carrier that could confidently withstand cloud bursts in the moors & hills and wind-blown sand on coastal forays... during chances to photograph stormy seas. The Agua 35 turned up ready for my 9-day trip to the mountains, hills and moors of Snowdonia National Park.

 

 

The AGUA ('Water' in Spanish) is an IPX3-standard storm-resistant camera-carrier.

 

 

 

 

 

 It is different than common water-resistant camera carriers because it allows 

a very intuitive quick-drawing of the camera. 

 

 

The AGUA's special structure allows the photographer to comfortably carry their camera close to the body in any weather: rain, snow, sandstorm or even in a dense urban environment, without worrying about the fate of their expensive equipment - and draw it quickly & with ease at the right moment to capture a perfect photo.

 

 

 

The AGUA 35, for large super-zoom cameras or mid-size DSLRs. Being used at here at Cwm Idwal, Snowdonia National Park.

 

 

 

The AGUA provides excellent double-layer protection against water and impact, thanks to an outer layer of waterproof

 tarpaulin in matte black, and a padded inner layer of Neoprene and Lycra.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Say goodbye to your old camera strap too, if you so choose…

One of the AGUA's unique features is the fact that the camera is attached to the bag with quick-release buckles, including a failsafe connection. 

This method eliminates the need for the original camera strap because the AGUA's strap is used to carry the camera itself.

 

 

 

Why is this method so successful?

 

 

  • Because when the photographer draws the camera it stays connected and protected from falling, 

if for any chance the camera slips out of their hands. 

The photographer can also choose to disconnect the camera completely.

 

 

 

 

AGUA Strap - Elegant and sophisticated solution to changing situations

The AGUA offers a comfortable diagonal strap with the most convenient mechanism for quick and perfect fitting 

with one hand.

 

 

 The strap has 2 buckles that allow quick attachment for disconnecting and reconnecting to the camera,

 thus turning into a high-quality camera strap.

 

 

This is a perfect solution for situations in which the photographer wants to carry the camera without the carrier.

 

 

 

The AGUA 35, allowed me to feel confident in carrying my Pentax K-x (mid-size DSLR) through the earlier drizzle on my ascent of thr Rhyd-ddu path on Yr Wyddfa (Mt Snowdon)  . Being used at here on the Bwlch Main Ridge, on the descent - as the mists cleared for a moment to reveal parts of Cwm Clogwyn, Snowdonia National Park.

 

 

 

I was very impressed with the quality of the materials and the workmanship involved in the robust construction of the camera-carrier. The 'Agua' is a camera-carrier that will make you confident that your camera is well protected from interactions in the environments through which you travel.

"At miggo we get up each morning with the aim of developing high quality products that will make the lives 

of professional and amateur photographers a lot easier and fun", 

says Guy Sprukt, Marketing Director at miggo. 

 

 

"During the research we conducted we found that many photographers seek a carrier that will enable them

 to carry their camera comfortably without hindrance, in any weather condition or hostile environment, without compromising on quick-draw ability. After a year of intensive development we are confident that 

AGUA will make lots of people happy, just because it's not an all-weather camera bag, but a carrier for any situation".

 

 

 

The various models:

 

The AGUA is offered in a discreet black-blue color combination,

 in 3 different sizes:

 

 

 

 ... all designed to carry a camera with one lens:

 

  • AGUA 25 for small super-zoom or large mirrorless cameras.

 

  • AGUA 35 for large super-zoom cameras or mid-size DSLRs.

 

  • AGUA 45 for pro-DSLRs (such as the Canon D5).

 

 

 

 

Prices:

 

miggo offers the AGUA models on Kickstarter, at prices that are significantly lower

 than their expected market price, 

so now's a chance to pick up the next revolutionary miggo product for less.

 

 

 

Availability:

 

 

 

Miggo Agua’s Kickstarter campaign launched at the beginning of June 2015.

 

 

The patented miggo products are currently marketed in over 30 countries around the world,

 with enthusiastic reactions.

 

 

"Today the company is busy developing a number of new products both in photography 

and in the field of optics and binoculars for bird-watching and outdoor activities."
