    TB backpacks: not enough comparison photos

    Having looked over the photos on the Tom Bihn product pages of the Synapse 19 backpack and the Synapse 25, I feel that there aren't enough side-by-side comparison images of the two Synapses. There should be more. I did not find any comparison images on the Synapse 25 product page, and only one on the Synapse 19 page.

    There are a few comparison photos on the Tom Bihn Flickr set for the Synapse 25, but none for the Synapse 19. (There is also a neat comparison photo of the Synapse 25 and the Smart Alec in the Synapse 25 set.)

    This got me to thinking: there aren't enough comparison photos between the various Tom Bihn backpacks. Comparison photos can be very helpful in deciding what kind of backpack you want. The Bihn merchandising web-site needs more comparison photos, and more need to be posted to the Flickr account. There also needs to be more angles for comparison photos; not just the front and side.

    Here's what I'd like to see for the ultimate comparison photo set: multiple photos from different angles, grouping of Aeronaut, Ego/SuperEgo, Synapse 19 & 25, Smart Alec and Brain Bag.

    As someone who owns a small online store - i know first hand how much time and effort is involved in keeping pictures relevant to current product offerings.

    As a bit of a bag nerd, I'm pretty impressed with the detail and number of images on the Bihn site. The number of sites that simply don't have interior pictures of bags is astounding.

    I find the crowd sourced images via flickr and the forums to be enough to meet any extra need for info .. I think the added perspective of the user of the bag is invaluable.

    Those images are very good and very informative! Thanks for sharing. How does one get images like that incorporated onto the Bihn Flickr sets for the Synapses?
