I visited the Tamrac booth at PMA and made videos of a couple of new Tamrac products – a compact new tripod and a new camera backpack. The new Evolution 8 backpack can hold a pro DSLR body with a pro 70-200mm f/2.8 zoom lens, opens from the sides as well as the back and can also be converted into a sling pack. But it was the sweet ZipShot compact tripod that really got my attention. The legs are like tent poles, it weighs less than a pound, you can put it in a small suitcase and it can hold your DSLR. But that description doesn’t really cover it. You’re gonna have to watch the videos.

I don’t think the new Evolution 8 backpack is listed on the Tamrac site, yet but there’s a dedicated page with more video and specs on the ZipShot tripod: www.zipshottripod.com
