Feature #2 Can be used as a belt pack, with the shoulder strap for support, as a shoulder bag, or worn with the included chest harness straps
Feature #3 UK Photojournalist Helen Atkinson shooting PR photos and testing one of the first Change Up prototypes with the chest harness. Notice how the chest harness, which is included with the Change Up, allows her to distribute the weight of the belt pack between her hips and the shoulders. It also allows far more gear to be carried in the Change Up comfortably. In this photo, the Trim Changer™ is attached to the side of the Change Up’s waist belt.
Feature #4 Sitting down, driving a car, and other important activities. In this photo, Helen Atkinson uses the adjustment straps on the front of the chest harness to move the belt pack higher on her body so she can sit down, edit, and transmit images. Depending on what you are doing during your shoot, you may want the Change Up higher or lower on your body. The ability to move it farther up is clearly advantageous if you need to jump in a car, sit down and edit, or even go the bathroom without taking it o
Feature #5 Used as a belt pack. The wide, supportive waist belt allows you to wear this belt pack either lower or higher on the front of your body, or even on the side of your hip. The choice is yours: whatever you prefer at that moment you are shooting. Most photographers tend to wear belt packs lower on the front of their bodies to facilitate getting gear in and out of the bag.
Feature #6 Shoulder strap used for support. The chest/shoulder strap provided with the Change Up is a great way to support the weight of the bag, while allowing you to rotate the bag around your body. You can adjust the weight from your shoulder to your hips, and move the bag along your waist with ease.
Feature #7 Can be carried as a shoulder bag. After tucking away the waist belt, one shoulder strap can be used so that it appears to be a regular shoulder bag. This is why we called it the “Change Up”: it can appear to be used for one purpose and then changed very easily for another.
Feature #8 Worn with a chest harness. This close up shows how when both of the chest straps are attached the bag can be fully supported by both shoulders. Depending on what you are doing, this is another great alternative. For full information, download the instructions.
Feature #9 Modular components attach to the belt. The “rails” on the waist belt allow our Modular components to be attached. In this photo, the Lens Drop In™ has been attached to allow quick switching of teleconverters. Depending on the size of the Modular component, one or two items can be attached per side rail.
Feature #10 Stretch front pockets. The front pockets are made from a stretchable material that allows items like lens caps, back caps, cell phones, business cards, and other essential items to be accessed quickly.
Feature #11 Side stretch pockets. The side pockets are also stretchable and designed specifically to hold a strobe. Small water bottles will also fit.
Feature #12 Front pocket organizer. An organizer in the front pocket allows all your essential goodies to be carried, such as your business cards, wallet, notepad, business cards, pens, pencils, aspirin, and MP3 players.
Feature #13 Removable padded insert. The padded insert is removable and attaches to the inside with Velcro. It can easily hold two lenses with large hoods, such as some 70-200s 2.8 with the hood reversed, and a wide angle lens like a 16 – 35 or 17 – 40 with the hood in position. The Change Up™ is great for changing lenses and other accessories.
Feature #14 Rear pocket for accessories. There is a separate, zippered back pocket for your notepad and other items that you need immediate access to, such as your gloves in cold weather. It is also an excellent place to store the chest straps that come with the Change Up.
Feature #15 Tuck away waist belt. The waist belt can be tucked behind the back pad to make them disappear when it is being used as a shoulder bag. It’s quick and easy.
Feature #16 Top carrying handle. On the back seam of the bag is a handle, and on either side are the D-rings that are used to attach the straps.
Feature #17 Seam-sealed rain cover. “Seam -sealed” means there is a special sealing tape that is applied to the inside seams to make the bag even more water resistant.
