The Vitec Group made some adjustments recently and decided to end the “Petrol Bags” brand of their popular camera bags. However, they were rebranded to the famous Sachtler brand, most widely known for tripods and the Artemis stabilizer line.
Our friend Dan Chung from newsshooter.com spoke to Tobias Keuthen from Sachtler at BVE 2015 about the change and their full new product line (which can also be seen on their website).
I personally am a big fan of Petrol Bags and my DSLR trolley has been my main camera bag for many years since I bought the C300 – and it still is faultless. Assuming that Sachtler will maintain the high quality of the Petrol Bags, I am emotionless about the brand name change, however Sachtler certainly rings a bell with more people who know our industry.
