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.

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.

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…
Stuart Jefferies and Steve Vernon – Clarke decided to take a road trip around the USA and film whatever came across their path… you follow their escapade here: Dodge & Burn: The Road Trip
‘One Dodge Charger, 2 Photographers/Film Makers and as many states as we can fit in. Mostly Unplanned and letting the ‘Road Gods’ guide us through Americas vast landscapes and forgotten towns. Documenting our experiences and thoughts as we go and sharing them with you when ever we find a WiFi hotspot.’
‘The Homestead‘ – is the first of several short interviews they shot while on this road trip around America. They traveled for nearly 3 weeks and travelled through 9 states. Their aim was to meet interesting people who would give them a small insight into their lives. None of the people they met knew that they were coming to interview them and on a couple of occasion neither did they! But, all were gracious enough to give them a few moments of there time.
You can see more of their interviews here: Snapalot78

DSLR 4 REAL
Sam Morgan-Moore has been a professional photographer for the past 15 years.
As Sam puts it, his role has been a ‘hole filler‘ – filling holes in brochures and newspapers and the odd poster or billboard for clients (paying clients). Over the last few years he has been ‘filling holes’ in clients websites too – with photography. But for Sam’s clients now these holes are saying ‘video goes here’…
Inspired from his experiences in moving into motion from stills, Sam has just launched his new blog: DSLR 4 REAL
His blog is all about making films or videos with a digital stills camera, or as he puts it: shooting with a DSLR Motion picture camera.
Check out his blog here: http://dslr4real.blogspot.com/
