Think Tank Photo’s Sling-O-Matic™ Sling Bag Series


The First Sling Bags with Easily Reversible Shoulder Straps

Think Tank Photo Sling-O-Matic Sling Bag

SANTA ROSA, CALIF – Think Tank Photo today announced that in October it will release the Sling-O-Matic, the photo industry’s first sling bag that can be easily switched back and forth to either shoulder. The Sling-O-Matic’s adjustable, fully padded shoulder strap “automatically” slides along a set of rails to change which shoulder the bag can be worn on.

This innovation is the solution to the problem inherent with sling bags: they are designed to be to worn over one shoulder only. With one smooth motion, the Sling-O-Matic can be quickly switched to the opposite shoulder without losing the characteristics that have made sling bags popular among photographers.

The Sling-O-Matic series offers three unique bags to choose from, depending on the photo gear a photographer needs to carry. The Sling-O-Matic 10 can carry a pro-size DSLR and three to four lenses, including a 70-200 f2.8. The Sling-O-Matic 20 and Sling-O-Matic 30 can each carry a pro-size DSLR and four to six lenses, including a 70-200 f2.8. The Sling-O-Matic 30 also features a separate laptop compartment for carrying a 15.4” laptop.

Key Features:

  • Industry’s first sling bag that can be easily switched back and forth to either shoulder.
  • Each bag fits a DSLR with up to a 70-200 f2.8 lens with lens hood in position.
  • All bags are flexible to fit most pro size DSLRs with a lens attached.
  • Discreetly stylized to avoid obviously appearing like a camera bag.
  • Long side pocket for carrying a tripod, large water bottle, or other accessories.
  • Large handles on three sides.
  • Wide zippered pockets on front, back, and side.
  • Business card pocket for identification.
  • Removable/adjustable straps and waist belt for additional stability.
  • Small storage pocket for storing removable straps.
  • Fully padded compartments for protection.
  • Seam-sealed rain cover included.

“However flawed their basic design, sling bags have long been a favorite among photographers, especially those who like carrying their gear on their shoulders,” said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank Photo president and lead designer. “With the Sling-O-Matic we solved one of their biggest problems, which is that carrying heavy equipment solely on one shoulder can cause pain. Within just a few seconds, photographers can quickly switch the load – and the weight – from one shoulder to the other.”
