The Petrol CA002 Cambio Camera Carrier/Support System (Black) is a bag designed to hold various brand small video camcorders with accessories. It also has built-in adjustable height support system. The bag is constructed of 900 denier fabric and ballistic nylon exterior with a padded interior. There is a set of removable rigid dividers that can customize the interior of the bag. A safeguard bottom protects the bag from damage caused by adverse elements such as dirt or water.

The bag has an ultra-wide U-shaped opening for quick and easy access.

There are cast magnesium lever clamps that ensure fast and sure column adjustment. A self-latching extendable aluminum double-bar tube leg braces the bag. The leg expands and retracts quickly with just the touch of the latch paddle.

          I've been looking for a bag I can easily carry my gear in while I travel. This is it. I now have the added benefit of an on board tripod that's solid enough for my gear. If there's any drawback I can say the handle is rough on the hands and the back leg needs an easier locking mechanism. Great for photo shoots. The camera compartment is easy to access and there's room for anything that you need.

          Comments about Petrol CA002 Cambio Camera Carrier/Support System:

          Bought this bag mainly to be used for autoshow filming. I travel to many shows all over the world and usually I'm packed with bags, tripods, etc. I was looking for something that was compact so I just needed to pull one bag - This was it. This year at the NY Autoshow during media days, there must have been over 50 people that stopped me, took pictures, too videos and asked me about the bag. You people all know who you are because everyone asked where I got it so I told them B&H. Its so odd, there are so few reviews on this product, most reviews are from people that just blog and they maybe tried it out for a few shots. Let me tell you, I've had this bag for a month now and its already seen a dozen airports.
          It only takes a second to set up and once its set, I usually roll it with my DSLR on it. Just make sure your tripod is locked up on all axis. The build quality is excellent and there are ample dividers and pockets, with that said though, with so much protection and padding comes compromise in space. It could hold a wee bit more for its size.

          I was very anxious to receive the bag as I had the perfect trip that I wanted to try it out on. When I did receive it though, the tripod head was missing from the case. A quick call to B&H and 2 weeks later, the manufactuer sent me a new head. In the meantime, I had an extra Manfrotto head and leveller that I used. Once again, B&H came through.

          2 negatives - it was no surprise to me though as I expected it. When you raise the column up to even med hight, the tripod is not really steady. Just think of it as a real good monopod that rolls and one that you can put stuff in. Even the wind will make it rock.

          Second thing that no one has ever noticed which I can't understand why is that the underside of the handle is really really rough and sharp. The mould should be smooth or at least place some rubber or padding in strategic places. This isn't because I have a camera on there with the extra weight, it 's when I'm rolling it through the airport, through trade shows. Your hand will never get used to the plastic digging into it. Also, due to the support leg that extends out the back, the overall clearance on the bottom is really lacking. Pulling the bag at a standard angle like any other roller bag, the bag tends to really drag when it comes to average height carpets and believe me, auto shows have a lot of carpet, if the bag is 30lbs. it'll feel like 60 as it catches on the carpet.

          Aside from the above drawbacks, if you need a bag with the features of this one, go for it, its the only one in its class ,but be forewarned, you won't get much work done because everyone will want to talk too you about your bag

              Cleverly engineered, but a bit unstable for cameras on the heavier side of its range (up to 10 lbs.) But for run and gun documentarian/news shooters who are on the move, could be perfect solution.
