Carry Your Camera Outdoors Five Ways with MindShift Gear’s Multi-Mount Holster
 
SANTA ROSA, CALIF – For outdoor photographers seeking one bag to carry a single DSLR camera on everything from a quick outing to a multi-night trek, MindShift Gear introduces four highly versatile Multi-Mount Holsters. Sized to fit a range of cameras and lenses, each holster offers five key mounting configurations: shoulder, pack/front harness, chest, storage, and belt. In a first for the photo industry, the Multi-Mount Holsters feature a unique backpack mount for multi-day comfort. The holsters feature an innovative “Stabilizer Strap System” that secures the bag in your desired position, distributes weight effectively, and is quickly adjustable.
 
In keeping with MindShift’s design emphasis on providing protection from stormy weather, wind, snow and dust, the new holsters feature a weather-blocking elements barrier under the zippered lid and a seam-sealed rain cover. The Multi-Mount Holster 30 and 50 sizes feature an expandable front pocket for quick access to photography essentials, such as a Speedlight flash or tabletop tripod.
 
“The Multi-Mount Holsters include all the accessories needed to personalize your camera carrying method,” said Doug Murdoch, MindShift Gear’s CEO and Lead Designer. “With just a few adjustments, you can quickly switch from carrying it on your waist, back, chest or shoulder.”
 
Features and Benefits
 
  • Designed for today’s DSLRs with attached quick release or L-bracket
  • Integrated multi-mount adjustable strap system tucks away into three dedicated pockets
  • Weight bearing shoulder strap features stretch-free neoprene comfort, slip-resistant shoulder pad, lightweight clips, and two-sided length adjustment including one ladderlock
  • Front harness weight-bearing pack mount straps feature quick-release SR buckles for instant removal and pivoting lightweight clips that attach to any pack’s shoulder harness with daisy chain webbing
  • Lightweight and compact stabilizer waist belt is designed to easily pivot the shoulder bag configuration around over the webbing
  • Stabilizer straps, stored in tuck-away pockets, quickly wrap around any backpack shoulder strap and create triangulated stabilization from low and high points on the front end of the bag
  • New YKK zippers are coated with an anti-corrosion substrate, providing enamel-finish durability. These zippers are less prone to freezing and much lighter than standard slides. They also pass YKK’s industry-renowned production fastening standard with a static pull test at three angles result in smoother zipping in all conditions.
  • Exterior shell is constructed with 420D nylon with Durable Water Resistance finish for long lasting durability and strength
  • Front expandable pocket includes organizer pocket, two separate loops for memory card holder and keys, and double sliders

Image quality results from the EOS 5Ds R and the EOS 7D Mark II have been added to the Tamron 90mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Macro F017 Lens page.
 
Image quality results from the Canon EOS Rebel T6 / 1300D are now available. A wide range of Canon EOS models can be compared with the Canon EF 200mm f/2L IS USM Lens (T6-tested) and/or the Canon EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM Lens selected (use f/4).
 
The Rebel T6 is available only in a kit with the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II Lens, so while we had this lens in the labs, we captured Image quality results from it mounted to the EOS 7D Mark II.
 
Image quality results from the EOS 7D Mark II are available in the Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM Extender 1.4x Lens Review. This is a venerable combination for sports and wildlife.
 
As usual, all of the above-mentioned items are available at B&H. Your continued support of the site by using the provided B&H and other retailer links to make purchases (of anything) continues to make these tests possible.

Use coupon code MOMDAY16 ($60.00 off) at B&H to get the Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 IF ED UMC Lens for Canon for $279.00 with free expedited shipping. Regularly $339.00.
 
The promo code should be automatically applied to your shopping cart when using the link above.
 
Product Highlights
 
  • Ultra Wide-Angle 14mm Lens
  • Compatible w/ Full Frame & APS-C Cameras
  • Hybrid Aspherical Lenses -- Sharp Images
  • Multi-Layer Coating to Reduce Flare
  • Manual Focus Lens
  • Built-In Petal-Type Lens Hood
This is a really fun lens to use and my go-to favorite for creating 360-degree panoramas. Being a manual focus, manual aperture lens means that there are fewer variables to consider when creating a panoramic image. Put the camera on a tripod, set the aperture on the lens (f/8 looks great), manual focus (using Live View 10x) and set the camera to manual mode and you're good to go.
 
This is also a great lens for real estate/architecture and was used for the image below. It can make a small space look comfortably roomy – a desirable trait when used for real estate images.

PTLens is my preferred program for removing the Rokinon 14mm's rather noticeable "mustache" distortion. [Sean]

The next generation Skyport is here and allows you to take full control of your flashes from the palm of your hands.
 
North White Plains, NY – May 2, 2016 – The EL-Skyport Plus follows the successful launch of the EL-Skyport Transmitter Plus HS for Canon and Nikon, for those shooters requiring Hi-Sync. The new EL-Skyport Plus system is compact and robust, using readily available AA batteries. The Skyport Plus offers an extended range of up to 656 feet (200 m) and controls the power of all Skyport enabled Elinchrom flash units. With eight individual frequencies and the choice of standard and speed protocols, there are 16 frequency options, each with four groups. The EL-Skyport Transmitter Plus is compatible with almost every camera. The transmitter head folds down for reduced profile and easier subject viewing while shooting.
 
Compatible with Most Flash Systems
 
The EL-Skyport Receiver Plus will trigger almost every flash system and features a built-in hot shoe to trigger speedlights, while enabling them to also be conveniently mounted onto a lighting stand.
 
When used in conjunction with a Skyport HS Plus Transmitter, most speedlights set at full power can also be incorporated into Hi-Sync applications (using high shutter sync speeds to freeze motion and control ambient light).
 
“Elinchrom has long prided itself on providing as much control as possible to its photographers. The new Skyport Plus continues that tradition by allowing shooters to take and maintain complete control no matter what they are shooting. When it comes to Living Light, no company does it better than Elinchrom.” said Jan Lederman, MAC Group President.
 
The Elinchrom Skyport Plus system is retro compatible with the existing Skyport Speed system, and forward compatible to the additional frequencies offered by the latest Elinchrom ELB and ELC units.
 
B&H carries the Elinchrom Skyport Plus system.

B&H has a shipment of Canon EOS 1D X DSLRs in its warehouse and is in the early stages of shipping preorders. Because of the long hiatus, preorders may take a few days to ship.
 
Note that the free 64GB CFast 2.0 memory card and reader deal ($300.00 value) was scheduled to end once the camera came into stock. B&H has yet to change the camera's stock status, so there's still time to take advantage of the great bundle deal.
 
Update: Adorama has the 1D X II Premium Kit (with free memory card) listed as in stock.
