My 2nd Brain / ShapeShifter – Easy Travel!


You might have noticed, I travel a bit. Getting the back end, computers and the like, safely to the location is just as important as the cameras. I’ve been lookin and lookin and finally found the perfect combination for me and wanted to share it with you. The Think Tank Shape Shifter (black case) has been around for quite some while and is has a huge fan base (and I can see why), it’s great! It can carry nearly everything in my former briefcase along with a body and a couple of lenses. But Think Tank just upped the game with the newly introduced My 2nd Brain (gray case on right) and Powerhouse case (gray case on left). This combination frees my hands since it’s a backpack, it protects it all and easily goes under the seat of a plane and best of all, everything inside is totally and easily accessible. While a bit early for my Africa trip, this appears to be the perfect solution with its weight restrictions. Check it out, it might work for your traveling gear needs as well!

Note: I changed up the lighting for this product in a heartbeat switching to the Westcott Rapid Box Octa/ SB-910 / PocketWizard FlexTT5 setup just 20″ above the product. I needed a bigger light and had it instantly. I’m in love with Rapid Box!
