We saw this on twitter and thought those of you looking for camera bags might be interested – Think Tank Photo to Release Redesigned Bags in New Speed Convertible Series. One of my issues with the Think Tank Multimedia Wired Up bag is that you can't remove the waist belt – sometimes you just don't want to strap that thing on your waist – so maybe these new bags would be great since they have a “disappearing” belt that tucks away into the sides of the bag.

The Press Release

Santa Rosa, Calif. – In June, Think Tank Photo will release its redesigned Speed Demon™ V2.0, Speed Freak V2.0™, and Speed Racer™ V2.0 as shoulder bags in its new Speed Convertible Series. Each Speed Convertible bag features a “disappearing” belt that tucks away into the sides of the bag, significantly reducing bulkiness. Within seconds, the shoulder bags seamlessly convert into belt packs once the integrated belts are deployed.

Features included 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.
