Orlando, Florida (Feb. 26, 2006) Targus Inc., maker of the world's best-selling notebook cases and accessories, introduces the Metropolitan line of camera and camcorder cases offered in three stylish designs – Small Camera, Medium Camera, and Small Camcorder/Video – featuring a steel gray exterior with orange contrast stitching and silver twill accents.
The streamlined design, coupled with a hint of color, appeals to men and women alike. Made of water-resistant nylon, all of the designs are lined with scratch-resistant fabric and extra padding to protect the camera equipment and accessories.
"The Metropolitan line contains the style and durability for which Targus is known," said Michael Greco, director, U.S. product marketing for Targus.
