Fast way to change lenses.

I am one of those guys that love to use manual lenses. So I have a 7 lenses and sometimes change them when shooting. Is there a small comfortable bag that I wear which doesn't restrict my movement. It only have to store maybe 3 to 4 lens.

What camera system and lenses do you have?

Take a look at the Think Tank belt system. Unlike the Lowepro pouches the TT ones are not padded so they are not bulky. The pouch fitting the Canon 70-200 f2.8 IS can be unzipped at the base allowing you to put the lens into it with its hood on.

Re: Fast way to change lenses.

Saw a product quite some time ago that was designed more like a purse with lens compartments, can't remember the name of it though... it was a nice design, a female photographer put it together (so it also was FASHIONABLE with different cover options, from my recollection), light, kept everything in proper order, and fit exactly what you're looking for if you can dig it up!

Definitely a "unisex" design that anyone needing to keep lenses and basic accessories in order during a shoot could benefit from! Now I wsih I could remember where I ran across it and the name!

Re: Fast way to change lenses.

Dave, was it the shootsac?

although i don't have the shootsac, I've used it once before and it is probably one of the best out there. it doesn't get in the way and very easy to use. Unfortunately, it is too expensive for my taste. I use a Domke Photo Courier that was given to me as a gift. It works well and I can fit 3 lens (50 F1.4, 24-70, 135 F2). Sometimes I would use it to carry an H4N with wireless receivers attached to the belt and a couple of lenses.

Re: Fast way to change lenses.

That Shootsac looks pretty cool.

Other options are:

-- Quikdraw, a Kickstarter project. Don't know what stage it's at. Quikdraw - an innovative lens holster by Riley Kimball — Kickstarter
-- Lowepro S&F belt with pouches attached. I use this, but find it a pain because of bulkiness, and rarely carry more than two lenses at most. On the other hand, having a belt leaves my arms freer than wearing some sort of shoulder sling bag.
