Think Tank’s Shape Shifter V2 bags for DSLR and mirrorless cameras

Think Tank’s Shape Shifter camera bags have just started shipping in three new configurations. The Shape Shifter bags have the unique ability to expand and contract to hold multiple camera bodies and a laptop. For multimedia shooters or run and gun operators, the Shape Shifter can compress to three inches in depth when gear is removed, allowing users to have their gear at the ready while maintaining a slimmer profile when manoeuvring through crowds.

The Shape Shifter 15 V2.0 is designed to hold a 15” laptop, tablet up to a 12” or 13”, plus one DSLR/mirrorless (gripped or un-gripped) camera, three lenses (detached) and personal items. The Shape Shifter 17 is designed to hold a 17” laptop, tablet up to a 12” or 13”, plus one to two DSLRs/mirrorless (gripped or un-gripped) cameras, three to four lenses (detached) and personal items. The Naked Shape Shifter allows shooters to attach Think Tank’s Skin Pouches or Lens Changers inside to create a totally customized modular backpack.

The Shape Shifter 15 & 17 both feature a lightweight tripod attachment on front of the bag that is designed to keep a tripod’s weight centered and allows access to your gear without detaching the tripod. There is also a roller handle pass-through sleeve to attach to a rolling luggage trolley, a detachable water bottle pouch and a plush pocket for keeping smartphones with displays up to 5.5”. Not only can you fit a lot of camera equipment in the bag, but Think Tank have also left enough space for fitting in a jacket, food or anything else you may need when you’re out on a job.
