Finally picked up my new toy, Think Tank Shape Shifter,  a clever, way-cool photo backpack that expands and contracts. Thanks to Leo Koo of and the people at Think Tank Photo! 🙂

The Shape Shifter compressed (top), to, and expanded (below)

Fits my 2 bodies (Canon Mark IIN, Mark III), 3 lenses (16-35 2.8, 28-70 2.8, 70-200 2.8), 2 speedlite (580EX and 580EXII) plus a 12″ Dell notebook . There are still plenty of rooms for power adapter and other small accessories.

Gears sitting on top of the neoprene pocket it fits into.

Gears placed inside the Shape Shifter’s five neoprene pockets.

Like like most of Think Tank Photo’s products, a rain cover is included.

Retailing at RM888, (which is a little pricey) this backpack is not for everyone 😛 If u’re a photojournalist or one that makes a living shooting, editing and transmitting pictures on location, this is the backpack to grab!!
