Think Tank Photo has announced a new studio lighting case. The Think Tank Production Manager is “designed to transport and haul a vast quantity of lighting gear” with movable dividers, various internal pockets and an exterior to which modular accessories may be added.
According to Think Tank, the Production Manager will hold 3–4 flash heads, 2–3 generators, or you can fill it with monolights, LEDs, softboxes, brollies and small stands. One example on the manufacturer’s web site shows it packing four Profoto B1 heads plus reflectors.
The bag itself has a “durable, water-repellent coating”, large replacable wheels and includes a locking cable to keep everything safe. There are light stand straps on both sides of the case and zip pockets to hold umbrellas, reflectors and cables. This is a large case and so has “antique nickel-plated” metal components with a tall skid plate.
- Exterior Dimensions: 15.7” W x 40” H x 12.6” D (40 x 101.6 x 32 cm)
- Interior Dimensions: 13.7” W x 38” H x 10” D (35 x 96.5 x 25 cm)
