I love geometrically repeating subjects.

I mentioned a while ago that I joined the Think Tank Photo affiliate program, mostly to see what would come of it. So a few weeks ago I found I could add a link to the free bag offer and put it on the sidebar to the right.

The funny thing is I never actually knew what the free bag was until today. So when you buy over $50 of product through the affiliate program (which is pretty much most of the bags) you can get one of the following for free:

If I did not have the Streetwalker backpack I would probably use one of these to hold my accessories. Though it is really only useful if you are using the belt system, otherwise any bag would work.

I use this bag to hold my lenses if I need to throw them loose into another bag, it fits all of my introductory lenses and holds them securely. It also has a rain cover for a bit of extra protection in wet climes.

I have handled these when working with Think Tank inventory but I have not used them. I would say they would work well for several small things, feels less protective than the Lens Changer 50.
