Following part 1, we thought you’d like to find out more about the new features of the version 2 Modular Components:
All the pouches now come with a grab handle, most have an elasticated front pocket and you can convert them into shoulder bags with the new Keep It Up™ strap!
Keep It Up™ – is a shoulder strap which attaches to any of the new pouches thus turning a pouch into a shoulder bag, or it can be attached to any of the belts in the Think Tank Photo range to provide extra support.
Hubba Hubba Hiney™ – bum bag (…AKA an attractive female bum bag!) can fit a 70-200 f2.8 lens horizontally, or is ideal for smaller lenses or 4/3rds gear as it comes with dividers and a shoulder strap.
Stuff It™ – organiser pouch with pockets for accessories and personal items or compact zoom cameras. Snapperstuff’s Peter can fit all this in his Stuff It™: Canon G9, glasses, wallet and even an iPhone!
Little Stuff It™ – compact pouch for a point and shoot camera, mobile phone or small accessories.
Strobe Stuff™ – pouch for DSLR flashes / strobes with attached diffuser. This padded belt pouch has enough space to accommodate pro-size DSLR flashes. Either the SB-900, 580EXII, or smaller flashes fits with a standard diffuser fitted. The front pocket fits an external battery pack with a cable pass-through to keep it attached to the flash. Includes pockets for gels or spare batteries.
To work out which pouch is the right size for your gear have a look at this pdf guide:

Think Tank Photo launched their new range of Modular Components at the end of last year, and we were very excited to give them their first major showing at Focus on Imaging 2012.
You can see the full new range by clicking here:
NEW Modular Components.
As well as the individual items two sets are available – a Modular™ Component V2 Set and a Modular™ Skin V2 Set – and the price of these will provide you with savings in comparison to buying each item in the set individually.

What is a modular component system and who uses it?
Think Tank Photo’s Modular Component System Guide gives some excellent advice on their integrated workflow system for professional photographers worldwide.
It covers: key features of the Modular, Skin and Multimedia components, storage vs. active shooting, set ups for different categories of photography, how to choose the correct belt, harness or components for you.
You can download a PDF of it here:
Please note that while the Modular Component references in this guide are those of version 1 products, the replacement version 2 products will provide you with the same quality that you expect from Think Tank Photo, but with some added features and some new sizes!
Part 2 to follow next week…
Professional photographer Freia Turland packed her Airport Antidote up for an adventure both for the bag and herself:
Canon 5D mkII with Battery Grip (BG-E6), Black / Blue Camera Strap and 24-70 f2.8 lens attached
16-35 f2.8 mkII
Canon Speedlite 580 EX
Special edition Pixel Pocket Rocket
Spare camera batteries, AA battery holders, lens cleaning cloth etc
Canon battery charger LC-E6E
In the front stretch pocket of the bag Artificial Intelligence 15 (included with the Airport Antidote) containing a 15” MacBook Pro (this is also included in the version 2 or you can get this separately)
Freia told Snapperstuff, “I wouldn’t normally keep a battery charger in my bag, but off to catch a series of planes to the Arctic Circle I needed to have everything in one place. I knew that the Airport Antidote met current legal international carry on requirements for my journey and was comfortable to have on my back for many hours of the day. A must with 100km snowmobile routes to make over the ice!”
Freia has the version 1 Airport Antidote, which has now been updated to the version 2 after feedback from users… find out more about the Airport Antidote™ V2.0 here…
We will show you some images from her trip here soon…
Please note: We highly recommend you check with your airline the legal carry-on allowance for both weight and size are prior to travel. Carry-on size and weight restrictions vary with different airlines and at different airports nationally and internationally.
