At NAB 2012, Kata-bags introduced they’re new line of video backpacks, rain covers and shoulder bags designed especially for professional videographers.
The Pro-Light Pro-V Backpacks accommodate a broad range of HDV camcorders, large HDSLR rig configurations or a DLSR with an attached lens of up to 300mm. The slim, streamlined exterior has full front access to the main compartment so four padded storage pouches can be accessed from outside or inside the bag. The pouches conform to gear size and shape for protection, and a four-color zipper identification system makes organization and access quick and easy.
Also Included in the Pro line series is they’re award winning Rain Covers. Made from waterproof materials, the cover features a crystal clear TPU panel that allows controlled monitoring and viewing of the LCD screen at any angle. It also features designated microphone and viewfinder sleeves and an overlapping top opening with modular sleeves to easily extract a shoulder strap, mini light or rig handle. When the camera is shoulder-mounted or handheld, a full bottom opening and dedicated hand sleeve make it easy to work with both hands; on a tripod the bottom opening seals closed. Pro-Light rain covers slip quickly over a camera to protect it from sudden rain and are secured by a quick pull of the drawstrings.
Kata’s best selling line of video shoulder bags, the CC series, are now updated as part of the Pro-Light collection. The industry standard for carrying video cameras, these bags have been updated as part of the Pro-Light line of lightweight protective Kata products and come in black Rip-Stop nylon with fiery red accents. The CC bags are designed around a large main compartment to fit the camera set up with essential working accessories. Additional accessories can be stored in an internal side compartment or large external pocket. Carrying options for Pro-Light CC bags include sturdy handles on top and both ends, a Gecko shoulder strap or the Insert trolley sleeve for sliding the case over a luggage handle and Kata's Insert Trolley (part # KT VG-DTS sold separately).
