Tired of missing the perfect shot because you didn’t attach the correct lens in time? Bored of carrying bulky camera bags and fiddling with lens caps? Well, this Swedish startup may just have to answer.
The TriLens is a triple lens holder designed to eliminate the frustration of changing lenses. It safely carries up to three lenses, which can be quickly interchanged and attaches to your trouser belt. Take a look:
The belt clip is curved to fit the shape of your body and the wide base distributes the load evenly over your hips. This not only makes it more comfortable but keeps the lenses secure. No matter what lens combination, the centre of gravity will automatically adjust to be as low as possible. The device has also been designed with an auto-friction mechanism. This keeps it stable when the user is walking or running.
Constructed from high strength steel and fibre reinforced nylon, the TriLens is weather resistant and designed to withstand loads up to 100kg. “Just in case you would want to carry a space telescope through a war zone,” according to the brand.
TriLens was created by avid photographer, and founder of Frii Designs, Jonas Lundin. With a background in mechanical engineering, Lundin founded his company with the vision of making life easier for photographers.
After an overwhelming public response, the company is launching a Kickstarter campaign for the TriLens on 9 May.
By backing the campaign not only will you get the TriLens for an incredible price. You’ll also be the first one to get it. We’re practically giving away the TriLens to the first 50 backers so make sure you’ll be ready when we launch…
But, as the TriLens is just being launched into the market, it isn’t yet compatible with every camera.
For the Kickstarter, we will focus on supporting Canon EF, Nikon F and Sony E-mount. But we see a big demand in other systems as well so we’re hoping to support M4/3 and Pentax K later this year.
