Orms Connect Giveaway: Think Tank Rotation 360°

  1. Wow… I already own a Think Tank Speedracer bag and this would be an awesome addition to my gear! I would definitly put in two bodies (Canon 50D’s), one with a 24-104 F4 IS lens, one with a 70-200 F2.8 lens… I would be able to squeeze in my 100mm macro, 50mm 1.4 and maybe my 40D as backup… I see there’s LOADS of space for batteries and memory cards… The fact that you can strap your tripod to the back is an added bonus!

  2. Very nice,  I will use it for all the quick access goodies.  Camera (Nikon D300) with 16-85mm lens, 35mm prime lens, some grad filters and polarizer and magic cloth.

  3. For me this looks like the ideal bag to in which to carry my rapidly expanding collection of Nikon equipment. Since I’m currently in the process of “going pro”, I’m putting quite a bit of income back into equipment at present.

  4. This awesome looking backpack will come in really handy to carry my Nikon D7000, 18-200mm lens, 50mm f1.8 prime, SB700 speedlight, Kenko extension tubes, and accessories (all purchased at Orms recently). Along with my old Nikon D40X with it’s trusty 18-55 kit lens as backup, my lightweight tripod and my Nikon binoculars. Most imnportantly the 500mm Sigma which I’ll be hijacking from my mother. If there’s any place left for a drink that would be a bonus; Those birdwatching and nature treks deep into the wilderness can be quite thirsty work!

  5. This is SO perferct for ALL my gear.  Lenses, extra batteries and filters in the belt pack … Canon eos 60D with lenses  in the backpack.  Great bag.  I so want it!

  6. The pack will help me keep all my lenses and filters and other accessories in order for when I traveling in South America next year. With its easy access I can take amazing photos along my trip and wont feel frustrated along the way. It also looks good for hiking and day trips, which will help when I hike Machu Picchu.

  7. I would put my Canon 70 -300 L lens for my Canon EOS 60D, my external flash plus something to chew on in the in the belt-pack section of the Think Tank Rotation 360°.   All else goes into the back.  This is the must have backpack.

  8. Hmmm… I’d have to say that I’d store my 50mm prime (fav walkabout lenses 😀 ) & 24 – 70mm, squeeze in 2 of my spare batteries and my bridge camera (Canon sx110 is )

  9. Spare Batteries, extra memory cards and some tissues for the “father’s of the bride” and some sunnies just to look as good as my new bag.

  10. With a bag like that I would pack Canon 5D and 7D body with a decent 300mm or bigger mm zoom and a wide angle lens. A 580 flash and a lightweight tripod and gorilla pod. some spare batteries, SD cards, lens pen. Some Cokin filters and packed lunch, water and I am good to go…

  11. I would use it for my Canon 5D and some lenses(which I am still saving up for), extra battery and memory card and maybe some energy bars(chocolate off course)

  12. It could work to swop from the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens to the Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5 L II Lens  . included the Canon Speedlite 580EX II Flash + extra memory

  13. Oh yeah, i would keep my 400D with the standard lens. i would also keen my 70-300mm lens and my flash in there. My Swiss army knife and selection of ND filters. Probably wouldn’t be a bad idea to keep some spare memory cards and a few extra batteries. My photo notebook would also fit in that would be the most valuable items i own. Kinda like a vault of sorts

  14. Just the bag for a husband-wife team…..Perfect bag !!!  Perfect to fit my Canon D500 with a  EF-S 18-135 mm lens as well as my husbands Canon40d with  EF-S 17-85mm and  EF 70-300mm lenses.

    Plenty of space for a  430EX II Flash, extra batteries and all those essential equipment, something for the road and perfect to fit on my back for those long trips on the motorcycle day trips.  Just perfect !!!

  15. Perfect for a Joburg Photowalker expedition; looks like I could fit everything I need in there to walk the streets of Johannesburg – and whip it out quickly if I need to snap something in a hurry. Certainly like the tripod attachment too – that’s good.

  16.  In the write-up it states a basic set of gear if less equipment is required, will be stored in the belt bag. I would store my lenses (24-70, 50mm and possible the 60mm macro) in this bag with hood for 24-70, for quick access – also a spare battery and CF card. What a stunning bag – come on guys, make my day – in fact MAKE MY YEAR!!!!! Mandi

  17. looks like more than enough space to hold my medium format Mamiya RB 67, 65mm 3.5 lens, 90mm , my nikon D40, light-meter and my 18-105 lens, 55mm f2 lens my 18-55mm lens,  torches, flash, plus all my filters and accessories …. 🙂 it will do me the world of good !!

  18. I’d keep my canon 550D with my 100 mm macro lens mounted on it. Plus a cable shutter release and a bean bag which is used a lot to support the camera when going down on my knees for those low shots of flowers and bugs.

  19. Spare batteries, memory cards, pen and notepad, my Speedlite if not in use, and whatever lens I plan to use after whichever lens is already in use. I tend to be one of those “take everything in case and keep near at hand” people. I’d probably put everything but the kitchen sink in there and then still make my assistant carry everything else, but at least this would make the load lighter. ;P

  20. Awesome Bag and belt pack. Would keep as much gear as it would fit 🙂 ranging from my 50mm to my set of extension tubes and all the goodies that go with it 🙂

  21. I suppose this will seem funny, but I will put my Canon G9 camera in there, plus my brush and some make-up.  A girl’s got to look good near a camera.

  22. I’m studying to be a Palaeontologist and it takes me out of town quite often which means going to some pretty picturesque places, so my Canon 400D is always at my side. Would be quite handy to be able to keep my camera along with the 300m lens I own in one bag, also the belt would be great to hook my rock hammer to, so that it is also easily accessible when I find a cool fossil. Looks like there is even space in the bag for a small fossil find or two. Great bag! 🙂

  23. Definitely for things I need to get hold of fast.  My 24-70, polariser, cards & spare battery, and there’s probably still room for my filters too, by the looks of it!

  24. I would put my zoom lens in there, always have my 50mm on camera. I’d also put some extra batteries and memory cards in there. And yes, most importantly, tons of pepper-spray to fend off jealous non-360-owners! Peace out.

  25. I would put anything that I need quick access to, like spare batteries, memory cards, lens cleaner, my Speedlite and whichever lens is not already on my camera. Great bag!

  26. I would keep my Nikon D5000, SB600 speedlight, my lenses and other photographic gear.  This prize would come in very handy for my trip up Sinai in November.

  27. 50mm or 35mm prime, filters and spare batteries. I would be using my macro, but may want a quick change for something. Filters tend to go on and off a bit with me, so that would work well. Oh, also a couple of lens cloths to keep my stuff dust free and pretty

  28. I’d keep my 50mm prime lens, as well as, one of the many that are on my wish list – makro or wide angle 😀  I see there is a spot for my spare battery too.

  29. AWESOME piece of kit .. I’ll definitely carry my 70-300mm (once I can afford it!!), a cool drink (probably a beer) and a can of mace – for when I’m out in the bush shooting (pics only) wild animals. LOVE it!!

  30. I would put my lens cap in there while I’m shooting (always misplacing it), flash diffuser, extra lenses and lens cleaners. I may even throw my cable pouch in there aswell.

  31. Wow! What an awesome bag, would love to own one! Bag at the moment is way too small… Would keep an extra lens, batteries, extra memory cards, lens cleaning kit and maybe some snacks for the trip. 🙂 🙂

  32. Wow, this bag looks pretty awesome and very functional too. I would keep my 580EXII flashgun in there, along with spare batteries and my 24-70 lens and whatever else would fit!

  33. What a stunning bag…would really look great with my stunning gear in it. When can I come and pick it up?…ha ha Very generous giveaway…someone is going to be very happy!

  34. What would I keep in the belt pack section… Beer.. just beer. Its a rad bag for photography, but I can see the advantages of having it swing around for easy beer access. Just line it with one of those small cooler bags and voila! 

    Of course if you were shooting weddings or events then it is a super convenient bag for accessing your gear for quick lens changes, speedlights, batteries or cards. 

  35. Everything that my assistant would of carried for a photo shoot, therefor I don’t need an assistant any longer just the Think Tank Rotation 360° Backpack, more that an assistant could ever dream of!

  36. Awesome Bag. Defenitely keep my flash, spare batteries, filters utra wide angle lense and of course something ice cold to drink on those really hot Cape Town summer days!

  37. I’d use it to store the 10-20 / 24-70 / 70-200 (which ever two aren’t on the body at that point in time), some wetwipes (great for quickly getting mud off your gear when shooting 4X4′ challenges), and some other cleaning products, and maybe a 580 EX II if I feel I may need it on the day.
