Established in 1977, Tamrac has been an innovator in the design of camera bags and backpacks for over three decades. It has pioneered many features and functions in the quest to create camera bags which are durable, comfortable and effortlessly useable.

Tarmac Speed Roller (Model 5592)

This rolling case conveniently provides a high level of protection and convenience of fast access to its contents. The Speed Roller can accommodate two pro-level D-SLR bodies with lenses attached, between four and sox additional lenses, accessories and a laptop. Best of all, it conforms to the requirement for carry-on luggage. A separate, foam-padded outer pocket will accept a 17.3-inch screen laptop.

New oversized wheels offer enhanced mobility and the ability to better negotiate imperfect surfaces. The ballistic nylon outer shell and rigid, plastic-armoured walls make the Speed Roller an extremely tough and protective case. Internally, a system of adjustable, foam-padded dividers can be arranged to fit a wide variety of photographic equipment. Tamrac’s ‘Windowpane-Mesh’ pockets inside the lid allow for the organization of small accessories such as memory cards, battery packs and filters.

The industrial strength telescoping handles locks open or closed with the push of a button while the big wheels provide a smooth, stable ride. Tamrac’s “modular Accessory System” (MAS) attachment slots allow for extensive customization with a large of optional MAS accessories.

Tarmac CyberPro Express Roller (Model 5263)

Ideal for photographers on the go, the CyberPro Express was designed to carry two pro-level D-SLR bodies, multiple large lenses (with hoods fitted) and a large laptop computer. A foam-padded pocket accommodates Apple’s 17-inch MacBook-Pro or other 17-inch screen laptops. On the front is an accessory pocket with internal ‘paraphernalia pocket’ for holding items such as mobile phone, DVDs and sunglasses. Large end pockets can be used to store power adapters, cables, cords and other bulky items. Smaller accessories can be stored in a pocket inside the top lid.

A weather-protected ‘Speed Pocket’ on the front flap keeps filters and other accessories available for quick and easy access. The telescoping handle opens and closes with the push of button, and stows away in a zippered pocket when not in use. Ball bearing in line skate wheels ensure a smooth and stable ride. When needed, the ‘EasyGrip” carrying handle and adjustable shoulder strap provide a choice of carrying options (the shoulder strap can also be completely detached).

Customize with Tamrac’s “Modular Accessory System’

Tamrac’s “Modular Accessory System” (MAS) offers additional accessories that quickly attach to any belt or Tamrac products that have the MAS quick attachment system. Using a security flap with a combination of hook and loop and snaps, these accessories are easy to attach and provide a fast and secure method for customizing backpacks, hip packs, shoulder bags, and the MAS padded Modular Accessory Belts. Whether it’s adding extra lens cases, a water bottle carrier or filter pack, a compatible Tamrac carrying system can be precisely customized to match a photographer’s specific requirements.

HPRC – the strong case for hard cases

Australian conditions can be pretty tough on camera equipment, but the Italian – made HPRC hard cases are up to the challenge. Their exceptional strength and durability is derived from a special resin called TTX01 which combines high resistance with elasticity. This makes it able to withstand impacts, drops and pressures. An HPRC case can also be used in extreme temperature conditions, ranging from -40 to +800C degrees Celsius.

HPRC cases are completely watertight, dust-tight and resistant to acids. The TTX01 material enables the walls of the HPRC shell to be thinner thereby saving weight, but the elasticity increases the degree of shock proofing.

HPRC’s “SoftDeck” is a new divider system kit made of the foam covering all six interior walls. It comprises self customisable dividers and a convenient large zipped pocked on the lid. The SoftDeck system comes in a choice of face colours so buyers can choose between red and black. The SoftDeck system is ideal for storing and transporting video, audio and photographic equipment. ‘AirEx’ is HPRC’s new automatic purge valve that has an auto press release which adjusts to changing environments automatically. It won’t unscrew from the case, and so it won’t get lost. Faster than the competition’s devices, the new valve works through a patented AVG medical filter which permits the air exchange, but also protect from the intrusion of water, humidity, air, dust and sand.

The Tamrac Story

Tarmac was started in 1977 in California by a group of nature and wilderness photography enthusiasts who couldn’t find a camera bag which met all their requirements. So they decided to start designing their own bags and backpacks, and have subsequently been responsible for quite a number of innovations.

In 1981, for example, Tamrac introduced the ‘Tuck A Way’ hip belt which was the first camera bag which converted into a hip pack. In 1982 it introduced the ‘Lens Bridge’ divider system and, in 1985, the ‘Strobe Hatch’ which enabled quick access through the back of a bag so items stored in the bottom could be reached without removing everything from the top. In 1987 Tamrac pioneered the ‘Windowpane Mesh’ system for internal pockets. The combination of clear vinyl and mesh provides strength and durability, but also allow you to see exactly what’s in the pocket.

Other innovations along the way have included sliding pockets (1995), the ‘QuickClip’ tripod attachment system (1998), giant rain flaps (1998), fast access lids (2000), dual open and closed cell foam for enhanced protection, patented storage pockets for batteries and memory cards, ‘LockDown’ rain flaps and the ‘SlighPack’ design which allows the pack to be quickly swung to the front for more convenient access to its contents.

Zeiss lenses – precision optics for the digital era

High performance SLR lenses for Canon, Nikon and Sony

The legendary German optical company Carl Zeiss makes a range of high-performance, manual-focus prime lenses for use in Canon or Nikon SLRs (either digital or 35mm film). Zeiss previously made 35mm SLR lenses for Contax and a number of these legendary models have been adapted and upgraded for digital capture. The Zeiss SLRs lenses are available in ZE (for Canon EF), ZF.2 (for Nikon F) and ZA (for Sony Alpha) mounts.

These lenses feature exceptionally high-quality quality construction, both optically and mechanically. The barrels feature metal tubes with metal control rings (for focusing and aperture selection) along with all metal mounts and sturdy front bayonets and lifter threads. The optical construction use high performance glass elements with Zeiss ’s famous T* multi-coatings to minimise flare and ghosting. All deliver high levels of correction for both distortion and chromatic aberrations. All models also feature nine-blade diaphragms for smoother out-of-focus effects with apertures adjustable in half-stop increments. The large rotary angle of the focusing ring is designed to enable very precise focus adjustments.

The ZE lenses for Canon SLRs feature electronic aperture couplings and built-in CPUs to relay the focal length and other data to the camera body. The ZF.2 lenses for Nikon F mount models also incorporate a CPU so that, for example, lens information is included in the Exif data recorded by D-SLRs.

Zeiss currently offers a total of 14 lenses and these include the Distagon T* 15mm f2.8, 18mm f3.5 and 21mm f2.8 ultrawides; the Distagon T* 25mm f2.0, 25mm f2.8, 28mm f2.0, 28mm f2.8, 35mm f1.4 and 35mm f2.0 wide-angles; the Planar T* 50mm f1.4 standard lens and the Planar T* 85mm f1.4 and Sonnar T* 135mm f2.0 short telephotos. There are two marco lenses; the Makre-Planar T* 50mm f2.0 and 100mm f2.0.

Newly announced is the Distagon T* 55mm f2.8 which will be available in the middle of 2013. This is an ultra-high performance prime designed to match the imaging capabilities of the latest generation of D-SLRs with 35mm-sized sensors.
