Picture2

Craig Sinclair is a British photographer from the South West of the UK. Currently studying a degree in photography with the Open College of the Arts. He got his first Nikon DSLR in 2010 as a Christmas present and has always had an interest in photography.

“I am passionate about wildlife, nature and landscapes and our impact as human beings on the environment and the planet (Just like MindShift Gear’s philosophy). Photography is an adventure to me, I love learning about different cultures and I am seeking to develop a greater appreciation for the history of photography and contemporary art photography as well as building on my technical skills as a photographer. I am an avid believer in sharing knowledge and experience within the Photography community”

Craig is a customer of Snapperstuff and kindly allowed us to share his photography work and thoughts of his purchase. Before we get to his review check out the pics he sent us to share…

Craig’s thoughts on the 

MindShift Gear R180

Professional Deluxe Backpack

 

The rucksack has a very solid, robust design. Compared to other rucksacks I own, this bag has phenomenal padding, using memory foam throughout the pack and on the arms of the bag. Why is this important to me? I injured my spine some years back, so comfort is essential for me and this bag delivers 120% in that field.  I am used to carrying fairly heavy camera gear on long treks and up mountains, you very quickly realise if a bag is suitable or not as it can get very uncomfortable and you will be miserable, unable to focus on taking great shots. This bag is designed to carry heavy loads for a sustained period of time in comfort.

“You could easily do a couple of days trek or longer with this setup”

One piece of advice I would give with any loading up for a trek, don’t be tempted to overload your rucksack simply because you have the capacity. Just because you can take everything doesn’t mean you need to. Try to think practically about your load up. This rucksack does deliver on capacity. I am able to go with a variety of different configurations depending on the shoot and how long I intend to be out for a trip or shoot. You could easily do a couple of days trek or longer with this setup, there is also the option for attaching some additional gear to the bag. There are ample pockets and compartments throughout the entire bag. The 3L capacity hydration compartment on the side is a great addition. I found the front pleated pocket, which runs the length of the bag from top to bottom, the best place to store my raincoat; easily accessible and keeps a wet coat separate from my camera gear.

The deluxe version of the bag which I have, comes with some great accessories, notably for me these were the photo insert and the top pocket. The photo insert enabled me to put my Nikon 200-500 lens securely in the main compartment of the bag along with a second Nikon D7200, there was also room for more gear if I needed it. The top pocket gives you that little bit of extra storage for things like your SD card holder, keys, snacks and i-Phone.

One of the little quirks I discovered was the way the arms of the rucksack move freely and independently with your walking movements as opposed to being really rigid like other rucksacks, this is a really key design feature. 

Observations and things to note:

Rotating belt pack

“always remember to clip the waist belt”

Whilst testing the bag out on a trip to a local nature reserve, I had mistakenly forgotten to clip the belt pack’s waist belt around my waist. Whilst walking through the woods listening to my friend talk about the array of wild orchids on show, I saw this fascinating little red cardinal beetle, I had to get a shot! I went to whip around the belt pack and nearly dropped the whole belt pack on the floor, much to my friend’s amusement. Thankfully no beetles were harmed in the making of this review! It’s just an observation but always remember to clip the waist belt. Thankfully MindShift Gear have thought of everything and the belt pack is actually attached to the bag using a small clip in latch clipped to the inside of the bag (which can be unclipped to use the pack independently), so the waist pack didn’t fall to the ground.

I found it takes some getting used to releasing the latch to pull the waist pack around to your front and I found sometimes I couldn’t get the latch to release so I left the side flap up. I think this was mainly down to me using the wrong motion to release the latch.

TIP: Here’s a an overview of the MindShift Gear r180 Professional Deluxe backpack, you’ll see a nice demo of releasing the magnetic clip within the first 30 seconds.

The rain cover

On another trip to a different nature reserve we were out in the middle of nowhere in the middle of a thunderstorm, a great chance to try out the rain cover! I found it was a little tricky initially to work out how to get the rain cover on, to be fair it was bucketing it down with rain with thunder and lightning overhead. So my advice is to try out the rain cover before you need to use it, so you know how to put it on properly. It’s a really good design now I have tested it out and keeps the bag dry, which is the point! The rain cover allows you access to continue using the waist pack. The waist pack also comes with its own independent rain cover.

“I absolutely love this rucksack, it’s extremely versatile. I can now focus on taking great shots and not worry about my gear”

TIP: Here’s a demonstration on how to attach your rain cover, it’s definitely worth testing before heading out!

takes a trip to the Arctic Circle

with Steve Gosling

Kissed by the Fading Light
Taken at Sakrisoy late one evening as the setting sun kissed the tops of the mountains across the water. A 1 minute exposure smoothed the water and captured some movement in the clouds.

Minus 10 Celsius
Taken at Uttakleiv I set the camera up to capture the sweep of the bay with the rocks in the foreground. It was then a case of waiting an hour or so for the clouds to co-operate and give me some interest in the sky. As I was stood in the shade I was grateful for the several layers of clothing I’d put on that morning!

Resisting the Elements
One of my favourite images from my trip to Lofoten. We found this little abandoned cottage just off the road and I loved its character and the mood it conveyed. We were also blessed with an interesting sky (not typical of this visit unfortunately).

I’m a great advocate of having a clear purpose about what I’m trying to communicate via an image before firing the shutter. However there are times when I’m drawn to a scene but I’m not sure what I’m trying to say no matter how long I ponder what’s before me. In these situations I’ve learnt to trust my instinct. This scene at Unstad was such a situation. I’ve since grown to understand the photograph and the meaning behind it (the clue is in the title).

 What did Steve fit into the

BackLight 26L Backpack

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My Backlight 26L is usually loaded with my Phase One medium format system:

  • Phase One A-series camera with IQ350 digital back
  • Rodenstock lenses – 23mm, 35mm and 70mm
  • A set of Lee graduated and ND filters
  • Accessories – batteries, memory cards, head torch, waterproof covers

Steve’s thoughts on the

MindShift Gear Backlight 26L…

Carrying a heavy medium format system camera plus lenses across a variety of terrains in all weathers has led me to search long and hard for the ideal backpack. I never found a solution that really worked for me until I came across the MindShift Gear Rotation 180° Professional. My previous review of that bag can be found here – https://snapperstuff.wordpress.com/2017/05/19/mindshift-gear-rotation-180-professional-deluxe-around-the-world-with-steve-gosling/

My MindShift Gear Rotation 180° Professional has been around the world with me from Europe to the USA to Antarctica and it’s still my favourite backpack. However there are rare occasions when it’s just too large to take on some aeroplanes – it doesn’t fit into the overhead compartments of the smaller planes used by some regional airlines. For example, earlier this year I went to the Lofoten Islands off the coast of Northern Norway and this required 3 flights from the UK to my destination and the last leg was in a plane not much bigger than a local bus (OK a bit of an exaggeration, but it was small!). Knowing how well made the MindShift Gear bags are constructed I looked for an alternative in the range and came across the Backlight 26L. Like the Rotation 180° Pro the outer is of a robust material and the compartments are well padded to protect my kit. It also comes with a rain cover for those times when the elements take a turn for the worse (something I was anticipating in Northern Norway in February). One advantage it has for me and the gear I travel with – it has a dedicated pouch into which I can place my laptop and/or iPad. There’s also an additional compartment in the front to put my gloves, scarf, hat etc.

“In short it’s an ideal backpack

for the outdoor photographer”

 

Although the MindShift Gear BackLight 26L does not have the rotating belt pack of its larger sibling, it does still enable me to access all of my gear without removing the bag and placing it on the floor. This can be done by swinging the whole bag to the front and accessing the main compartment from the rear (see photo). This is great when I’m working in locations where I don’t want to put the pack down and the rear access means that the back of the bag doesn’t get covered in mud or sand on those occasions when I do put it on the ground.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I have encountered two minor problems with the backpack in use. The first is that any large gear located right at the bottom of the compartment is difficult to access when the backpack is swung to the front. Not a big deal – now I’m aware of this I pack the bag to avoid the issue by locating smaller items at the bottom. The second issue requires some attention from MindShift Gear – the grab handle at the top of the backpack is not as substantial as the one on the Rotation 180° Pro although the bags are capable of carrying similar load weights. I have heard of some cases where the grab handle has failed – thankfully not a problem I’ve experienced but then I don’t just rely on the grab handle when picking up my kit.

With those two provisos I can highly recommend the MindShift Gear Backlight 26L. It’s not replaced my Rotation 180° Pro as my go to backpack but when I need something smaller it fits the bill ideally.

The hairstyle and the philosophy

of a Buddhist monk…

Travelling to a location within the Arctic Circle in February I expected extreme weather conditions – wind, rain, snow & ice. In the days immediately prior to my trip photographer friends of mine were there and experiencing regular snowstorms – fantastic for moody images. I was full of anticipation. Of course I took suitable precautions for me and my gear. In terms of clothing several layers were the order of the day – Merino wool base layers for top & bottom halves, thick socks, liner gloves, waterproof & windproof outer gloves, down filled jackets and a thick waterproof outer layer. Fully dressed I resembled the Michelin man – not a pretty sight but functional.

Sods Law of course determined that we arrived to sunshine and blue skies (still very cold though!) – weather conditions that dominated most of our week there. Holiday weather I call it and not my favourite for atmospheric landscape photography. In years gone by I would have driven myself into a spiral of negativity – wandering around, chuntering to myself about my misfortune, letting the frustration build up to a point where my creativity diminished to zero. But as I’ve got older I’ve acquired both the hairstyle and the philosophy of a Buddhist monk. I’ve learnt to accept that what will be, will be and I can’t change the weather. My approach these days is to adapt, to be flexible and respond to what I find, forgetting any predetermined notions of how I’d like things to be and instead going with the flow. This is better for my creativity, my blood pressure and my sanity!

MindShift Gear UltraLight Dual 36L – On an adventure with Sam Mossop

Posted on Updated on

MindShift Logo

UltraLight Dual 36L

– On an adventure with Sam Mossop –

MSG306 UltraLight Dual 36L - Black Magma 14 S

MSG306 UltraLight Dual 36L - Black Magma 89 S

 

Sam Mossop – a great photographer who works at one of our specialist photographic retailers – Wilkinson Cameras in Kendal, gave us his thoughts on the MindShift Gear UltraLight Dual 36L.

Before we do check out these beautiful shots taken by Sam –

7 - Photo 2 - Ullswater (1)Broken jetty at Pooley Bridge, Ullswater, sunshine and warmth during the pre sunset, temperature dropped drastically when sun set but I had all warm clothing in my bag with all the gear.

7 - Photo 3 -Derwent Water (1)  Isthmus Bay, Keswick at sunset, balancing on rocks in the water was helped by slinging back on to shoulder to set up tripod and filters for long exposure of sunset.

7 - Photo 1 - Rydal Water (1)Rydal Water at night, Milky Way visible, short hike to the water itself, plus climb up to Rydal Caves and Loughrigg Fell.

What does Sam think of the MindShift Gear UltraLight Dual 36L?

I have been using the MindShift UltraLight Dual 36L for some time now and have found it to be an incredibly versatile bag for general photography trips and longer walking in the hills. The first thing that strikes me about this bag is just how light it is for a 36L bag, this is even with the additional inserted case for camera equipment, it really lives up to the UltraLight name. The camera bag is split into two main sections, an upper section for personal equipment or photographic gear and a lower section with a removable padded case intended for photographic equipment. This insert can be removed to function as an external camera bag in its own right slung over your shoulder with the supplied strap, I found removing the insert and using it as a base to swap lenses quickly was very useful especially in wildlife and scenic areas where you never know what is round the next corner and are changing lenses frequently.

“it really lives up to the UltraLight name”

I have been using the bag for walking in the Lake District and for photography trips around the local area. Being able to pack in all the photographic equipment I need including my camera + 1-3 extra lenses along with my filter system and a tripod and then be able to also carry a 3L water bladder and waterproof coat and trousers, food, first aid and survival equipment is absolutely invaluable. The weather on higher ground is incredibly variable and so packing everything you need is essential especially for winter walking. The tripod holder is on the outside centre of the bag which is key for longer walks as the weight of the tripod is not pulling down on one particular side.

The Mindshift UltraLight bag is made of a lightweight but tough, water resistant material on the outside and a high quality durable inner material. The advantage of the bag being made of rugged water resistant material is that even if you do need to put the bag down you know it will be fine on any wet ground and will not soak through in the minute or two you need to access the bag. With the adjustable chest and waist strap you can really tailor the fit of the bag to make it comfortable for long periods of time. The bag comes supplied with waterproof covers for the bag itself and the removable case so you can be safe from rain in all scenarios, the waterproof cover will also fit over a tripod mounted on to the bag.

“In short, the bag is light weight, practical, versatile and comfortable even when loaded with equipment”

How much gear does Sam pack?

Well, this much…

It’s like winter clothing for your gear… . 

I used the bag for a night time walk to Rydal up to Rydal caves and then on to Loughrigg in just below 0 degree temperatures. The bag kept my equipment relatively warm even though the outside of the bag was actually being coated in condensation when I stopped, due to the temperature. For several shots and extended periods of time the bag was on the floor and no moisture got inside the bag, I could just rely on the bag and carry on taking photographs.

Whilst walking up Helm Crag and around the Easedale Horseshoe as thick cloud and snow closed in on me being able to carry all my photography equipment comfortably and safely, being protected from the elements and still able to navigate with map and compass and keep warm in the winter clothing I was able to pack meant that a potentially miserable situation was actually fairly enjoyable. Even if there was very little photographic opportunity with 5 metres visibility.

If you’d like to meet Sam you’ll find him at Wilkinson Cameras Kendal. Where you can also find stock of MindShift Gear bags and accessories.
