TTP Speed Convertible Series

Singapore, 30 June 2011 – Think Tank Photo announces the launch of its redesigned Speed Convertible camera bags. Designed for speed and accessibility, these bags can be adapted to any photographers’ shoot style and technique. Utilizing a “disappearing” belt that tucks away into the sides of the bag, significantly reducing bulkiness, it seamlessly converts the shoulder bag into a belt pack and vise versa. This gives photographers the freedom to easily adapt to any shooting situations.

This new Speed Convertible Series comes in 3 models, Speed Demon™ V2.0, Speed Freak V2.0™, and Speed Racer™ V2.0. Features include a flip-top lid that folds away from the body for rapid and convenient access to gear.  A fully padded shoulder strap with embedded non-slip material is included, which also supports the bag in belt pack mode.  The soft kidney-shaped design contours comfortably around the body.  Built-in Modular rails allow attachment of Think Tank’s Modular, Skin or Multimedia components.

Not only can photographers choose how to carry their bag, they can also select the right capacity between the three sizes in this series.  The smallest, Speed Demon V2.0, can carry a standard size DSLR with a standard zoom lens attached (hood reversed) and a wide angle zoom lens beside.  The medium size Speed Freak V2.0 also carries a standard size DSLR with a zoom lens attached and is tall enough to accommodate a 70–200 f2.8 lens in the bag.  The Speed Racer V2.0, the most spacious of the series, effortlessly fits in the main compartment a pro size DSLR with a standard zoom lens attached and a 70–200 f2.8.
