Being a photographer is about getting to the right location at the right time - which can often be challenging.

Being a photographer is about getting to the right location at the right time - which can often be challenging. To help photographers protect their lenses from the rigors of travel, Think Tank Photo has just released the Lens Case Duo series of six quick-access, dual-opening padded lens cases. A zippered lid and side opening is a unique feature compared to other lens cases.

With the Lens Case Duo, photographers can protect their delicate lenses while transporting them in rolling cases, backpacks or shoulder bags. These cases can then be converted into a modular system for quick access in a bag or on a belt. A shoulder strap is included for the six larger sizes: Lens Case Duo 5, Lens Case Duo 10, Lens Case Duo 15, and Lens Case Duo 20, Lens Case Duo 30, and Lens Case Duo 40. Two exterior stretch pockets provide space for a lens cap or a cleaning cloth. Soft zipper protectors and a plush lining protect sensitive and expensive lenses from scratches. All sizes come in black and green.

''The Lens Case Duo should be used by every photographer concerned about protecting their lenses, especially while in transit,' said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank Photo’s President and lead designer. ''While our roller and backpack dividers provide ample protection, the Lens Case Duo provides just that extra protection layer that could help prevent damage in unforeseen circumstances.'
