Think Tank Photo Launches MindShift Gear

by Reads (10)

MindShift Gear is a start-up outdoor backpack company co-founded by Think Tank Photo and conservation photographer Daniel Beltra. This company is launching the rotation180° professional backpack through a Kickstarter program. The Kickstarter program is designed to fund the production of the backpack.

The non-traditional backpack grants access to your camera in a new way.  Its rotating waist pack allows nature and adventure photographers to maintain creative momentum by offering immediate access to primary photo equipment in even the most precarious situations without having to take off the pack, sling it over one shoulder, or even stop hiking.

The rotation180° integrated belt pack will be able to hold a pro sized DSLR and two lenses, or the 70-200mm f2.8 attached to a body. Additional photo equipment, such as a spare body, flash, and up to five lenses, can be stored in the upper compartment’s removable camera insert. For minimalist excursions the insert can be removed and the pack filled with other outdoor gear. An internal aluminum frame supports and stabilizes heavy loads and the side pocket holds up to a three-quart optional hydration bladder.

Optional accessories for the rotation180° professional include a detachable top lid pocket, modular lens case, waterproof ground sheet, additional gear attachment straps, and a unique tripod support system for effortless hands free roaming with the camera and tripod are comfortably suspended from the shoulder harness.
