FIRST IMPRESSIONS:

Call me photography man! Yes, with the thinkTANKphoto Modular component system attached to a thinkTANKphoto pro speed belt, you feel like a photography superhero. Imagine being equipped with all the items you need for a job. You feel so empowered. Now I know what Batman feels like when he is presented with a situation where he needs to get out of a certain situation.

AFTER FIRST USE:

Wow. My back thanks me.  Since now with the modular component system, the need to carry a backpack on set is no longer a must.  I have all that I need carried by my hips and not my back. Below you will see how I configured the thinkTANKphoto Modular system. You can also check out the post on how to configure and pack your component system here: http://photographysilo.com/how-to-configure-and-pack-your-thinktankphoto-component-systems/

thinkTANKphoto also prepared some great documentation on how to store and use your modular system that can be found here: http://www.thinktankphoto.com/products/modular-set-component.aspx and then click the support tab and locate the .pdfs.

CONCLUSION:

Bottom line, every photographer should have a Batman utility belt aka thinkTANKphoto pro speed belt and modular component set. I will never do another photo shoot without wearing my Batman utility belt. It feels great having everything you need organized for fast access on your belt.  If you don’t believe me, then ask to borrow a friends component system and give it a try.  I have both the Skin and the modular system and they are both amazing.  Make sure you check out the Skin component system review.
