Tamrac Introduces Hoodoo Series of Camera Bags

Designed for adventure, Tamrac’s new Hoodoo series of camera packs are designed to take videographers and photographers anywhere — from urban areas to the wilderness.

Tamrac said the new Hoodoo bags feature water resistant waxed canvas, YKK zippers and PU coated ripstop. The packs feature comfortable harnesses and high-grade components. There are two sizes/styles and three colors of each bag type.

The Hoodoo 18 allows camera operators to quickly access a camera thanks to a padded upper compartment designed to keep it near the wearer’s fingertips. The Hoodoo 20 is actually three packs in one: a protective camera backpack, a stand-alone camera shoulder bag and a day pack.

The Hoodoo 18 handles compact DSLRs or mirrorless systems plus a lens or two. Users can tuck the camera and extra lens into a Goblin Pouch and then pop them in the Hoodoo 18's upper padded compartment. Personal gear goes in the main compartment and up to a 13-inch laptop can be stored in the laptop sleeve. The Hoodoo 18 weighs 1.3 pounds.

The Hoodoo 20 has access through the front of the pack to quickly grab a camera. The protective camera module carries compact DSLRs and mirror-less camera systems with extra lenses. The top portion of the bag carries personal items as well as most 15-inch laptops in it's own protective sleeve.

Users can take out the protective camera module in the Hoodoo 20 and use it as a shoulder bag with the included shoulder strap. The bag includes dividers that are customizable to adapt to all camera gear. The Hoodoo 20 weighs 2.8 pounds.

The Hoodoo 18 is priced at $89.95, while the Hoodoo 20 costs $129.95.
