Think Tank is releasing the new shoulder bag line Sub Urban Disguises in February, designed for the professional photographer seeking smaller capacity camera bags and amateur photographers upgrading their bodies or using one to two lenses along with their new body.
The bags will be available in four sizes and here are brief descriptions of each:
- The Sub Urban™ Disguise 5 holds a regular size DSLRs with one to two small telephotos or primes, or a D700 with a 18-200 attached. It also accommodates Micro 4/3rds, Leica and Sony NEX systems. Great for Strobists as it fits two to three pro-size flashes.
- The Sub Urban™ Disguise 10 holds a regular size DSLRs with two to three small telephotos or primes, or a D700 with a 18-200 attached. It also fits three pro-size flashes.
- The Sub Urban™ Disguise 20 holds regular size DSLRs with three to four small telephotos or primes or a D700 with a 18-200 attached. It fits four to five pro-size flashes.
- The Sub Urban™ Disguise 30 fits a regular size DSLR and two to four standard telephoto lenses, or a D700 with a 24-70 2.8 attached. It can also hold an iPad or similarly-sized tablet.
All the bags feature a flip top lid that opens away from your body, providing easy access to gear.
Think Tank is also releasing a new version of their multi-purpose shoulder bag, the Change-Up V2.0. This bag can change from belt pack to shoulder bag to chest pack via the harness system. In addition, many Think Tank Modular and Skin Components can attach to the waist belt straps. This bag can hold a standard-size DSLR and a 70-200 2.8, (detached), or a standard-size DSLR with 24-70 2.8 attached, plus one to three additional lenses.

ThinkTANK Photo announced today the Sling-O-Matic bag—”the photo industry’s first sling bag that can be easily switched back and forth to either shoulder.” The brand’s sling bags have long been popular with photographers, but it seems they have gotten a lot of feedback about the previous inability to switch shoulders, which results in back pain. They have addressed that issue with the Sling-O-Matic, which “with one smooth motion…can be quickly switched to the opposite shoulder.” The Sling-O-Matic comes in three sizes to fit the needs of different photographers: 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. All bags will be available in early October. More from ThinkTANK Photo here.
