Think Tank Photo aus USA hat wieder einmal spannende News für uns Taschenfreaks. Die sehr beliebte Serie der Shape Shifter wird aktualisiert. Dazu bekam ich eben die folgende Pressemeldung. Diese Pressemeldung sagt zu den neuen Rucksäcken (in Engl.):

Think Tank Photo Upgrades Award-Winning Shape Shifter® – Expandable Backpack and Adds “Naked” Option

Santa Rosa, Calif. – A revolution in backpack design when it first released, Think Tank’s Shape Shifter expanded and contracted to hold gripped camera bodies and a laptop. In response to input from professional photographers, Think Tank has released the Shape Shifter in three new configurations. The Shape Shifter 15 V2.0 is designed to hold a 15” laptop and the Shape Shifter 17 is designed to hold a 17” laptop. The Naked Shape Shifter allows photographers to attach Skin Pouches or Lens Changers inside to create a totally customized modular backpack.

“While traveling or on location, the Shape Shifter V2.0 lets photographers adjust their backpack to fit their workflow,” said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank’s CEO and lead designer. “The Shape Shifters compress to three inches in depth when gear is removed, allowing photographers to have their gear at the ready while maintaining a slimmer profile when maneuvering through crowds.”

  1. Hallo Taschenfreak,
    eigentlich ist der Naked Shape Shifter ja eine tolle Idee.
    Leider funktioniert es in der Praxis nicht so gut.
    In den alten 15″ ShapeShifter bekam man zwei 2 Canon 1Dx + 3 Standart Zooms + Konverter und einen Blitz unter.
    Das gelingt mir bei 17″ Naked Shape Shifter kaum. Ich habe auch bei der normalen Version des Shapeshifters mit festen Taschen den Eindruck – nur für ein Gehäuse ausgelegt.
    Es ist das erste Produkt von ThinkTank das mich nicht überzeugt.

    Ich bin gespannt auf Deine Erfahrungen.

    Gruß Dirk
