LAS VEGAS, April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Manfrotto Distribution, world leader in the equipment and accessories industry for imaging, brings a slimmed down lineup of Kata rollers, shoulder bags, video backpacks and rain covers to the National Association of Broadcasters show in Las Vegas. Designed especially for professional videographers, Kata's products set the standard for carrying and protective solutions. With a focused product line for 2013, it is easier than ever to find the right bag and rain cover for your camcorder or video DSLR.

"Kata Pro-Light products are designed to protect professional gear while minimizing weight, so you never miss a shot," said Doug Feldner, Product Category Manager. "The focused 2013 product line makes finding the right bag or rain cover with the online Kata Bag Chooser (www.kata-bags.us) simpler than ever."

Pro-Light Photo Rollers (with attached wheels)

The Pro-Light FlyBy is a sleek, low-profile, on-board* camera organizer, with integrated wheels. It provides hard-case protection with the advantages of a soft case – light, modular, with a multitude of pockets and storage options. The FlyBy looks like any onboard luggage so you are not targeted as a shooter with "overweight" gear. Perfect for carrying a camera and laptop, the Flyby holds almost any gear you need for a job across town or across the country.

There are two sizes in the Pro-Light Flyby Series

  • Pro-Light Flyby 75 Rolling Case (Model # KT PL-FB-75) FlyBy-75 PL Photo Roller for and interchangeable lens video camera and accessories or 1-2 Pro DSLR Bodies + 6-8 Lenses (up to 400 mm) and 15'4 or smaller laptop.  Street price $249.99.
