MindShift Gear Introduces Lens Switch Case Tweet This   Forward This

3 September 2013


The Think Tank Photo spin-off MindShift Gear has developed a solution for quickly swapping lenses in the field. The $42.50 Lens Switch Case attaches on a belt or backpack like the rotation180 to carry up to a 70-200mm lens.

Lens Switch. Holds up to 70-200mm zooms with an external pocket for accessories.

Intriguing design features include an external pocket for filters, etc. and a pop-down extension for longer lenses, which we've seen before on Think Tank Photo holsters.

The new Lens Switch Case is a less-expensive option to the $75 SpiderPro Large Lens Pouch introduced in July to carry a 70-200mm lens with lens hood on your belt. It tethers the rear lens cap for you while changing lenses and folds flat for storage. We have one here for testing.
