Thanks to their use of individual pouches for camera bodies and lenses and the ability to expand their size, ThinkTank’s Shape Shifter camera bags are known to be among the most versatile in the business. Now ThinkTank has funneled years of feedback from photographers into an update and released a new generation Shape Shifter line.
The series consists of three models: the Shape Shifter 15, the Shape Shifter 17, and the Naked Shape Shifter 17. Like their predecessors all new bags compress down to only three inches when empty and can be expanded in line with the amount of gear you carry on a shoot. They also come with a detachable water pouch, YKK RC-Fuse zippers, a removable waist belt, a tripod attachment and a rain cover.
The Shape Shifter 15 holds a 15″ laptop, a DSLR, three lenses and a 12-inch tablet plus accessories. The larger Shape Shifter 17 is good for a 17-inch laptop, up to two DSLRs, four lenses, tablet and all the cables, lens caps and other accessories you need. The Naked Shape Shifter 17 is even more versatile, as you can configure the bag in exactly the way you prefer by inserting ThinkTank’s Skin Pouches and Lens Changers. The Shape Shifter 15 is available now for $250, the 17-inch model is $280 and the Naked version will set you back $220.
