Due to the enormous success of Petrol Bags' sound equipment carriers, the company introduced at 2013 NAB the Deca Large Lightweight Audio Bag (PS617, pictured) that is optimally designed for soundmen who use the Sound Devices 664 mixer, with or without the CL6 Controller.
Ready to work with the user, this wearable carrier offers the ideal combination of user comfort, safety, equipment organization, and practicality in the field. Within the bag, the mixer and controller are fully accessible and readouts are easily viewable. It offers a roomy, cushioned main compartment to safeguard delicate equipment. The standard removable internal divider accommodates the 664 Mixer and attached CL6 Controller, while offering easy access to the unit's XLR connectors.
Petrol Bags also introduced the new Deca Airflow Camera Backpack (PC306). The new backpack system features a rainbow shape to allow air flow-through to enhance comfort. Ideal for small cameras up to the Sony PMW-200 size, this no-hands carrier offers a special pocket for a 17" laptop and accessories. The main compartment has a run around heavy-duty zipper for easy camera access. Other smart features include sternum strap and padded waist straps for wearer comfort and security and exterior pockets for extra storage.
Petrol Bags' also is launching Mini Hoods purpose-built for the Canon EOS C100 (PA1018) and C300/C500 (PA1016) to shade the LCD monitor on the popular DSLR cameras. Their unique designs aid custom shading. Both are constructed of lightweight 100% nylon fabric, with rigid internal panels. Sturdy black nylon binding straps secure the Mini Hood firmly in place. And finally, the company has announced a new raincover for the Canon EOS C100 (PR400).
