Think Tank Photo Offers New Products and a New Promotion

It has been a while since we covered anything from Think Tank Photo here on the site. We’ve review many of the products and I’ve always been impressed. The company just rolled out a few new products and new promotions for June 2014. If you are into photography both the products and the special deals are worth checking out!

The first promotion centers around the Shape Shifter Backpack. It is one of the company’s most popular backpacks thanks to its unique ability to expand or contract depending on what you are carrying and where your travels take you. As they explain:

This revolutionary breakthrough in camera backpack design expands and contracts to fit your equipment. It carries monopods and tripods in the bottom front pocket, features a contoured harness for men and women with air channel, holds a full assortment of photo gear and a laptop up to 17”, and compresses to 3 inches when gear is removed.
