Petrol Bags Intros Cambio Camera Carrier/Support System

Petrol Bags, a Vitec Group brand, has introduced the groundbreaking Cambio convertible equipment bag/camera support system.
A carry-on sized smooth-rolling camera carrier that expands into a lightweight support system for small video camcorders, Cambio lets users travel lighter and set up more quickly once they've arrived at the location.
The Cambio camera carrier has an ultra-wide U-shaped opening for quick and easy access. Inside the main compartment, there is ample room for a camera and accessories. Twin straps of hook and loop material anchor the bag's front flap in open position when inserting/removing the camera or converting to the support system. Petrol's proprietary sliding pipe system (SPS) secures the camera and keeps it in place. The bag's interior is fully padded for maximum equipment protection.
Within the Cambio is an expandable (up to 142cm/56") black anodised aluminium column that can accommodate cameras weighing up to 4.5kg (9.9lbs). Cast magnesium lever clamps ensure fast and sure column adjustment. The bag's patent-pending frame and axle trolley handle with integral handle and camera platform includes a 75mm ball head mount adapter.
The freestanding Cambio is braced by a self-latching extendable aluminium double-bar tube leg. The leg expands and retracts quickly and easily with just the touch of the leg's latch paddle. When using the support system, Cambio's patented heavy duty, jitter-free wheels and axle can be chocked to prevent rotation and add extra stability.
Additional features include an open side pocket for holding a bottle of water, front and side pockets for additional storage, an exterior zippered front pocket with a personal organiser, removable rigid internal dividers for custom configuration and polypropylene-injected legs that lift and safeguard the bottom of the bag from damage from adverse elements such as dirt or water.
The Cambio is available in both a standard model and with a lightweight micro-fluid head that allows for quick attachment and conventional pan and tilt movements.
