MindShift Gear Filter Hive Case Allows Outdoor Photographers
Quick Access to Camera Filters of All Sizes and Shapes
SANTA ROSA, CALIF. – MindShift Gear announces the release of the first case designed for quick access to round, square, and rectangular camera lens filters, the Filter Hive. The Filter Hive solves organizational and functional problems of conservation, landscape, outdoor action, and wildlife photographers who need quick access to filters of different shapes. The filter case resembles a bee hive with padded, felt-lined slots that protect delicate glass and resin filters.
“Since the days of film, outdoor photographers have used filters to adjust a gradient over their image to compensate for a bright sky or sunset,” said MindShift Gear’s founder and president Doug Murdoch. “With the Filter Hive not only do they have quick access to the right filter, its removable interior makes for easy cleaning and compact travel.”

It is belt mountable and will attach to MindShift Gear’s rotation180° Panorama and rotation180° Professional backpacks. Its grab handle with
SR buckle allows it to be hung from a tripod for quick access. Its color coded organization allows filters to be located quickly. It has a front zippered pocket for quick access to a lens cloth and its YKK zipper keeps out dust, moisture and debris.
