This is why we called it the 'Change Up.' It can be used for one purpose and then be changed very easily for another. Cameras such as the Nikon D200 or the Canon 5D without the bottom battery grips attached can be put straight down into the bag with a lens attached.

For photographers who require a sturdy field bag they can use in a variety of settings, Think Tank Photo announces the release of the Change Up. This one bag changes form as a belt pack, a shoulder bag, and even can be carried on the chest when supported by the enclosed harness system.
The wide, supportive waist belt allows photographers to wear this belt pack either lower or higher on the front of the body, or even on the side of the hip. The choice is up to whatever they prefer at that moment while they are shooting. Most photographers tend to wear belt packs lower on the front of their bodies to facilitate getting the gear in and out of the bag.
The chest/shoulder strap provided with the Change Up supports the weight of the bag, while allowing it to be rotated around the body. This allows photographers to adjust the weight from their shoulders to their hips, and move the bag along their waists with ease.
"After tucking away the waist belt, one shoulder strap can be used so that it appears to be a regular shoulder bag," said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank Photo founder and lead designer. "This is why we called it the 'Change Up.' It can be used for one purpose and then be changed very easily for another. Cameras such as the Nikon D200 or the Canon 5D without the bottom battery grips attached can be put straight down into the bag with a lens attached."
With most belt packs, when photographers sit down they feel quite uncomfortable because bag is in the way. With the Change Up they can use the adjustment straps to pull up the bag 4 to 8" on the front of their bodies, which allows them to sit down comfortably.
