Oconnor launches protective camera assistant bag


OConnor has introduced its Camera Assistant bag, which will debut at IBC2018. Featuring a water-and-dust resistant liner with stuff pocket, the bag is designed without any internal seams, and features a hinged lid that can be left open on set without putting sensitive equipment at risk.
“Working in close consultation with our customers, we designed the unit bag, setting new standards for quality, durability and protection, with every aspect of on-location workflows thought through and designed in,” said Steve Turner, product manager, OConnor.
The Camera Assistant bag is constructed of water-resistant materials and features a tough wipeable outer fabric and a double-skin lining. For heavier loads, D-ring fixing points on the front and back enable users to carry the bag Sherpa-style using the leather strap provided, which spreads the weight of the bag over the carrier’s back, rather than concentrating it on the shoulders. The Camera Assistant bag fits into a standard Pelicase 1620 travel case.
On the inside, the Camera Assistant bag includes seven dividers with double-sided fastening strips, designed to secure OConnor heads and accessories. Additional fixing points hold accessories such as pan bars, camera plates, and durable clear-mesh pockets offer storage for additional gear.
Crew members of Ember Films, who served on the principal photography team for the Planet Earth II television series, and who also work on feature films, commercials, and drama series all over the world, offered input into the essential features necessary for a bag that could serve in the most extreme on-location environments.
