With its $44.99 Filter Nest, the outdoor photo gear company MindShift has designed one solution for two problems. The padded, zippered pouch keeps your filters handy and protected in the field and its removable insert is perfect for efficient packing, the company said.

Filter Nest. Compact solution to two problems.

The compact pouch can hold eight round filters and two neutral density filters safely without their plastic cases. Color coded dividers helps you find the right filter quickly. A front zippered pocket fits a lens cloth.

The Filter Nest includes a belt compatible with the rotation 180 Panorama and rotation 180 Pro backpacks. You can also hang the pouch from a tripod with its side release buckle.

MindShift Gear's New Outdoor Photography Filter Nest is Two Bags in One

SANTA ROSA, Calif. -- MindShift Gear has just released the Filter Nest, the first dual-purpose round filter case for outdoor photography. The Filter Nest is two bags in one: a padded, zippered pouch protects delicate filters from dust and scratches in the field and a removable insert allows for compact packing. The Filter Nest is belt-mountable and compatible with MindShift Gear's rotation180 Panorama and rotation180 Professional backpacks for quickly accessing filters while setting up a shot. Plus, the grab-handle with SR buckle enables photographers to hang the Filter Nest from a tripod to suit workflow for rapid filter changes when speed counts.

"Photographers rely on filters to create various lighting effects," said MindShift's president and lead designer Doug Murdoch. "They need a protective, well-designed case that provides rapid access for quick filter changes. The Filter Nest provides for this quick access, as well a means for compact packing."
