From Think Tank Photo:
 
12/3/2012
 
The founders of Think Tank Photo today announced that they have launched a new camera bag company, MindShift. MindShift is a group of committed professional photographers and product designers who support conservation and protection of our natural resources and planet.
 
Founded by our founders and conservation photographer Daniel Beltrá, MindShift is dedicated to building carrying solutions for those who are passionate about experiencing the natural world. The company’s slogan, “Engage with nature,” challenges people to not only become involved in outdoor activities, but to create a conversation about nature and our relationship to the environment.
 
MindShift’s proprietary rotation180° technology will specifically target outdoor professionals and enthusiasts who work in nature and need quick access to their gear. Their first product that features this technology is the rotation180° professional, a sophisticated outdoor photography backpack that features an integrated waist pack that rotates out of the lower section to the front of the body, allowing full access to gear.
 
“The problem with traditional backpacks is that you have to take them off of your back or swing them forward to access gear inside,” said MindShift’s co-founder Doug Murdoch. “Utilizing the rotation180° technology, the integrated waist pack rotates to the front of the body and offers rapid access to the contents without having to stop, take off the pack, sling it over one shoulder, or set it on the ground.”
 
Through Kickstarter.com's online pledge system for funding creative projects, Mindshift seeks funding to help pay for production for the first edition of the new backpack. To view MindShift's Kickstarter project go to:

MindShift is co-founded by Doug Murdoch, founder, CEO, and lead designer of Think Tank Photo; Mike Sturm, co-founder of Think Tank Photo; Jerry Dodrill, award-winning adventure outdoor photographer; Daniel Beltrá, award-winning conservation photographer; and Brian Erwin, a former Sierra Club staffer and Think Tank Photo’s marketing adviser.
 
“Our customers will be the devoted community of outdoors people who use photography to tell important stories and chronicle real life adventures,” said MindShift’s Jerry Dodrill. “They are hikers, skiers, and mountaineers, sports, nature and wildlife photographers, travelers, and scientists who rely heavily on their equipment and are passionate about experiencing and preserving the natural heritage of our planet.
 
“Our designs are the result of extensive field work by our team of top conservation, nature, and adventure photographers. With their input we strive to build the most innovative and functional products on the market, providing protection and accessibility to equipment in even the most intense conditions. As conscientious manufacturers it is our obligation to make products that are long lasting, repairable, and have the least impact on the planet”
 
MindShift has a full slate of new bags and accessories in development that feature innovative designs and the highest quality materials.

Think Tank Photo Announces Airport 4-Sight Roller
 
Santa Rosa, Calif. – Think Tank Photo announces that in May it will release its first four-wheeled rolling camera bag, the Airport 4-Sight™. The Airport 4-Sight meets international airline carry-on standards. The roller’s weight has been reduced dramatically through innovative design and by a strict focus on the features that photographers find most beneficial.
 
With professional photography gear not getting any lighter, Think Tank set out to design a more ergonomic roller to reduce fatigue and strain on traveling photographers. Walking a four-wheeler alongside one’s self is easier than pulling it behind or carrying it over a shoulder. Putting the bags weight on four-wheels eliminates arm strain and makes rolling effortless.
 
Four-wheelers are superior on many smooth surfaces. On thick carpet, the Airport 4-Sight leans over to perform as a traditional two-wheel roller. It has the added benefit of rolling sideways on two wheels to easily navigate tight spaces, such as airline aisles.
 
Features Include:

  • High capacity. Holds Pro DSLRs with four to five lenses.
  • Integrated removable Think Tank Cable Management organizer.
  • Side hinged lid opens bag completely for quick and unencumbered access to gear.
  • Two-position locking handle for comfort and ergonomics.
  • Zippered top pocket for boarding pass.
  • Lockable zipper sliders on main compartment.
  • Reinforced bottom panel for increased durability.
  • User replaceable handle and wheels.
  • Seam sealed rain cover included.
  • YKK RC-fused™ zippers.

“The Airport 4-Sight is in a class by itself,” said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank Photo’s co-founder and lead designer. “It appeals to frequent flyers or anyone who seeks ease in transporting gear. Smart design features like reduced overall weight and increased maneuverability, ergonomics and capacity make this rolling camera bag a breakthrough in the industry.”
 
Specifications
 
Internal Dimensions: 12.3” W x 16” H x 5–6.7” D (31.2 x 40.6 x 12.7–17 cm)
External Dimensions: 14” W x 19.5” H x 8” D (35.6 x 49.5 x 20.3 cm)
Weight: 7–8.9 lbs (3.2–4 kg)

Think Tank photo has announced updates to their Modular Rotation System and Modular Rotation System Skin Components:
 
Think Tank Photo Releases Completely Redesigned Modular Rotation System
 
Santa Rosa, Calif. -- In response to customer feedback, Think Tank Photo’s has completely redesigned its Modular Rotation System to provide additional features and benefits, including easier photography gear retrieval, better equipment fit, and an updated/inclusive style. The Modular Rotation System consists of three product groupings: Lens Cases, Gear Pouches, and the Modular Component Set V2.0. The new items will be available for sale in December at www.thinktankphoto.com.
 
The Modular Rotation System is part of Think Tank Photo’s integrated modular belt carrying solution, which also includes its Skin™ components. The Lens Cases and Gear Pouches feature padded components and the Skin components features unpadded pouches.
 
The new Modular Component Set V2.0 includes the Lens Changer 50 V2.0, LC 75 Pop Down V2.0, Strobe Stuff, Speed Changer V2.0. All can be transported in the breathable Large Travel Pouch. All of the elements can be carried as a set or as individual items on Think Tank Photo’s Pro Speed Belt V2.0, Steroid Speed Belt V2.0, or Skin Belt V2.0. The new Keep It Up™ Shoulder Strap provides vertical support to any Think Tank Photo belt and includes a memory card holder.
 
The Lens Cases’ new features are:
 
• Wide mouth opening allows for smoother lens retrieval and replacement.
 
• One-hand drawstring closure with the auto-locking mechanism: only one hand is needed to securely close the pouch.
 
• Zippered bottom pocket includes seam-sealed rain cover.
 
• Top handle allows for easy gathering of multiple pouches.
 
• Smooth back reduces wear on clothing and helps components slide easily around the belt.
 
• Padding under lens cover protects lenses from bumps and bruises.
 
• Improved front pocket material for increased durability and elasticity.
 
The Lens Cases consist of the Lens Changer™ 15 V2.0 (accommodates tele-converters and small primes with hood in shooting position), Lens Changer™ 25 V2.0 (small telephotos with hood in shooting position), Lens Changer™ 35 V2.0 (24-70 2.8 with hood in shooting position), Lens Changer™ 50 V2.0 (wide angle lens—16-35, 17-40—with hood in shooting position), LC 75 Pop Down™ V2.0 (70-200 with hood reversed or in position), and the Lens Drop™ (standard telephoto zoom lens).
 
The Gear Pouches include the same new features as the Lens Cases, as well as:
 
• Secure front pocket with increased hook and loop.
 
• Improved rip-stop nylon for increased durability and discrete styling.
 
The Gear Pouches consist of the Strobe Stuff™ (pro-size flash with some lens modifiers attached), Slim Changer™ (standard-size body, lens not attached), Speed Changer™ V2.0 (pro-sized body, lens not attached, and small telephotos and pro-size batteries), Stuff It !™ (accessory pouch for all your stuff: CF cards, batteries, filters or pocket wizards), Little Stuff It !™ (accommodates most point and shoot cameras, including Canon G12 & Nikon P7000), Hubba Hubba Hiney™ (70-200 2.8 lying down or two to three smaller telephotos; includes shoulder strap), and the R U Hot ?™ (for water bottle, hat, gloves).
 
Both the Lens Cases and Gear Pouches come with Think Tank Photo’s unique Rotate and Lock design feature so that components slide along the belt or fasten in a specific position on the belt.
