Tamrac Corona 26 overview

  • 1Description

Whether shooting street, action photography, and everything in between, photographers will appreciate the black, Tamron Corona 26 Convertible Pack's ability to quickly convert from a traditional backpack to a left or right-handed sling bag. Your Corona is designed to store, protect and organize your Pro DSLR, lenses and accessories in a main compartment with touch-fastening dividers. A second, padded, rear compartment will hold a laptop or tablet. For versatility, gear may be accessed from the top, front, or sides. The top zippered compartment stores items requiring fast access as well as the seam-sealed rain cover. Underneath the top and front lids are drop-down lids with clear, zippered, pockets for small accessories.

Running down the front exterior are daisy chain attachment points for securing a tripod and other items. Photographers wishing to avail themselves of Tamrac's extensive line of accessories will welcome the side ARC / M.O.L.L.E. attachment points. Carry your Corona pack with the padded top handle or harness with adjustable shoulder straps, and sternum strap. For comfort, cushioning, and improved airflow, the back panel is made of padded mesh. Converting the pack to sling usage is quickly accomplished by removing the sternum strap, stowing unneeded shoulder strap in the lower section, and clipping the bottom of the remaining shoulder strap to a ring on the opposite side of the pack. The result, is a fast, and streamlined conversion.

    Tamrac Corona 26 reviews

    Corona 26 Convertible Pack (Black) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Road trip buddy I got my Tamrac Corona 26 the day before I left on a flight to Austin, TX from Fayetteville, AR then drove from Austin to Monterey, CA, stayed a week then flew back to Fayetteville. I loved the look and feel of it instantly. It's a well constructed bag with lots of room. I took 2 camera bodies (5D MK II and a T4i), both had lenses on the, and 2 extra lenses...it was a tight fit...but got the job done. The top compartment had lots of room for all of my extra junk too. It fit perfectly in the carry on compartment and in some cases, under the seat in front of me. I really do enjoy this bag...I don't really have any complaints. Though, I should probably say, I'm rather easy to please. Tamrac just makes good bags, hands down, my favorites.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice roomy bag, although a little expensive I have been using a Lowepro Slingshot 302 for years and loved it. My only complaint about it was that the top compartment was too small. I also decided that I wanted a laptop compartment. This bag has a slightly bigger equipment area and much larger top compartment. It converts to a sling pack, which was one of my requirements. I like the side doors on both sides, as well as the front door on the equipment compartment. My only real complaint about the bag physically is that the zippers are wimpy. The zippers on the Lowepro were much more heavy duty, and therefore much easier to open and close. The zippers on this bag are sometime difficult to open and close.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from A big step down from the previous version We have two of an older version of this bag that have seen several years of hard use. For the most part they're still going strong, although I wanted to get a replacement due to a failing zip on one of them. Sadly, this latest incarnation is nowhere near as good both in design and in construction quality. The fabric is lighter weight and the zips are a lighter grade. More of an issue, too, is that the dimensions have been modified and it's now simply too small to be of any use. The side access flap isn't big enough to fit a Nikon D810 with battery grip attached unless you really force it in and out with two hands -- that's just not convenient. With the older bag I can fit the D810 with battery grip AND with a GPS unit attached! Additionally, the front flap is significantly smaller and makes it impossible to get a second DSLR with lens in and out (the older bags were fine for this). They've also dropped the two rectangular zip pouches that were on the upper sides of the bag. Yes, you can attach add-on pouches, but that's additional cost and isn't as neat. I suspect this change is a result of Tamrac going bankrupt and being acquired by Gura Gear, who seem to have cut costs (and quality) and then churned them out under the Tamrac brand again. In any event, I'm sending this bag back as it's useless to me, and I'll get the older bag repaired instead. Very disappointing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Corona vs. Protactic Comparison I've owned many bags over the past several years but almost all fall short of being what I need. My normal bag for quick outings where I don't need a ton of extra gear is just a lowepro top loader 75 with attached lens case. It's obviously a camera bag (not discrete) but it's small enough where most people don't notice me. Plus it can handle a 70-200mm with body attached. Since my wife and I had a baby, I was looking for a nice multipurpose backpack (to keep my hands free) so that I can not only carry some camera gear but also some non-camera (baby related) gear. I wanted this bag to be suitable for multiple uses (family, hiking, business, travel, etc) My requirement were: Need ability to access gear without taking pack completely off. Needs a removable waist band. When I'm carrying a small amount of gear, I don't want an obnoxious waist band. But I like the option of a band. Needs the ability to carry more than just camera gear (This is where most camera bags fall short) Needs some sort of attachment system, preferably MOLLE for extras when hiking or traveling Needs to be somewhat presentable in a corporate environment if I decide to take it on a work trip Needs the ability to carry my company issued dinosaur of a laptop (IBM thinkpad) for the rare business trip I take. Otherwise I never carry a laptop. Needs the ability to cary a 70-200mm with body attached. Must be able to put it away without first removing the lens! I currently own an older Kata DR 467 that meets a lot of this criteria, but it cannot hold a 70-200, doesn't have molle and has no side panels to easily remove my camera. This worked well when I had less kit. I thought I found exactly what I was looking for when I saw the lowepro protactic series of bags. I had access to a PT 350 bag for a short period of time and was impressed with the build quality. This PT350 bag cannot hold a 70-200mm but it's bigger brother, the PT450 can. My biggest complaint with the protactic bag is that it's difficult to fit the camera in and out of the side panels even without a battery grip. I loved the MOLLE strips but thought it might attract too much attention if I brought it to a corporate environment. It's a beautiful bag but just couldn't get myself to order it because: The laptop sleeve only holds the newest thin style laptops like macbook airs. There is no dedicated, non-camera related sections to the bag. I suppose you could however partition off the top section. In my opinion, it's not really business appropriate. Gets too much attention with all the MOLLE strips. Then, I stumbled upon the Corona Series of bags right after they came out. Looking at the Corona 26 vs the ProTactic 450 The Corona is significantly lighter. 3.5lbs vs 5.72 The Corona has just enough MOLLE to be useful, yet not look like military gear The Corona has bigger side panels. Getting your gear in and out is a breeze. The Corona has a nice, big laptop compartment completely separate from the other gear. On the PT450, your laptop is on the swinging panel. The Corona has a great top partitioned space that I can use for non-camera gear for some events or I can load it with light modifiers and flashes for other events. The Corona can be converted to a sling bag with ease. I love this feature I also feel the Corona looks more like a regular backpack, although a bit larger. The PT450 looks very unique and may attract more notice in a crowd. So where does the PT450 beat the Corona? Build Quality? I don't have access to a protactic bag now, but I recall it being somewhat tougher built than the tamrac. I suppose that's why it's heavier. The Tamrac is very well built though The ability to mount a tripod on the back and not lose access to the rear panels. On the Corona with a tripod mounted on the back, you lose access to the rear panels. The Corona supports a waste band but at an extra cost. The PT450 can hold two bodies (one with 70-200mm) with lenses attached. You cannot really do that with this bag. Fortunately I was not looking for that. Theft prevention. The PT450's panels are less accessible for thieves. But for the Corona you could zip tie the panels closed when you're in a dicey situation. In summary, I love this bag. It's a wonderfully thought out bag that can adapt to almost any situation I want to shoot. I plan to sell off all of my bags aside from my toploader because this one meets all of my requirements. If you're looking to carry 2 bodies, this bag likely isn't for you. For me, a 70-200mm, 16-35mm, 50mm, 1.4x converter, maybe an 8-15mm fisheye or 100mm is already heavy enough without a second body. This bag is perfect for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cary all backpack I purchased this model to replace an earlier version that had worn out. I decided to get this larger model to accommodate more camera gear as well as misc items in the upper area. The up side:This model is much deeper and easily holds my full frame with grip and a 70-200 attached. In a nutshell, this bag will hold your gear and still have room for a change of clothes, laptop, glasses case, snacks or what ever. Perfect.The down side:It is very easy to over pack and turn this into 30 pounds of dead weight. I am 5'7 155 lbs and found that I couldn't tighten the shoulder straps enough to take the weight onto my shoulders and off of my lower back, so it kept digging in and driving me crazy. I solved this by purchasing a Crestrail 70 hip belt from @ (less than $). It attached right on to the pack with the belt straps going into the pack buckles. This took me less than 2 minutes. OMG what a difference! The weight is now displaced to the hips allowing the shoulder straps to be loosened up. The belt also has two small pockets, perfect for a cell and some $. Of course my wife says that I look like a huge dork when it's all put together, but I'll be comfortable on those all day hikes. I also like that this pack has several loops that you can attach carabiners to for water bottles, a big improvement, so you don't need to carry water in the pack (a disaster waiting to happen).This pack will probably be over kill for most, but if you're that person that needs the space, this is the best pack out there.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tamrac Corona 26 I wanted a larger backpack. This seems to work for me. it has enough space to put my gear. I am sure there are better backpacks but for the price it is great.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from not soft for camera and lenses This bag was not soft enough for camera storage. Afraid of making damage for the equipment. Returned it.
