If you’re out shooting in the field a lot, you know that changing lenses can be a hassle, especially when you use a heavy backpack that you have to take off and on repeatedly. My solution for this is to shoot with no camera bag at all. Instead, I use the Modular belt-based storage system, by ThinkTank Photo. I’ve been using ThinkTank products for years and I absolutely love them. The Modular System is a series of lens and accessory pouches that attach to a special belt. This system makes changing lenses a breeze and makes my gear much easier to manage.
In an earlier video, I detailed the general setup I like to use and I’m posting an update to show how I’ve changed my setup in the video shown below.
FYI: It looks like ThinkTank has renamed their belt-based product line from Modulus to Modular.

Tried to watch the video, but get a message – this video is private.
Thanks Rick! We updated the video and everyone should be able to view it now.
Thanks for posting this. I too am frustrated with backpacks. Can you tell me if the center pouch is the ‘Chimp Cage’ or the ‘Trim Changer’?
Hi Ray, We just updated the links on this post, to include the filter pouch. It’s made by Tamrac, and can be found here: http://www.amazon.com/Tamrac-Compact-Filter-Case-Black/dp/B0009PAVI2
I hope that helps!
Wow, thanks so much for the reply! Have a great shoot in Africa.
