Petrol Makes NAB House Call With New Camera Carrier

Petrol, a Vitec Group brand, will introduce the Dr. Petrol camera carrier at NAB. Inspired by the traditional doctor’s bag, this new semi-hard equipment bag is uniquely designed to hold a camera and accessories securely while offering fast and easy access to its contents.

Dr. Petrol’s hinged top unzips and opens to a central compartment with ample room for inserting a fully equipped camera without disturbing the mic, viewfinder, or mattebox system. Detachable padded dividers can be custom configured for such accessories as batteries or a camera light. Other features include an exterior side pocket for additional storage, U-Grip interlock carrying handle, adjustable, ergonomic padded shoulder strap, and Petrol’s dual directional easy-glide zippers. The carrier’s exterior is constructed of heavy-duty blue and black Cordura.

The new Dr. Petrol camera bag is available in six sizes:

  • The PDRB-1 fits cameras like the Sony PDX-10 and Panasonic DVC-30.
  • The PDRB-2 holds the Panasonic DVX-100/A/B, Sony PD100/150/170 and similar size cameras.
  • The PDRB-3 is tailored for the Sony PMW-EX1 and HVR-FX1/Z1/V1, Canon XL and XH series, etc.
  • The PDRB-4 is sized for the Panasonic AG-HVX200 and JVC GY-HD100.
