With the launch of the new Digital Photo Series (DPS), Kata is bringing its world renowned level of protection to every-day photography. This complete line of backpacks, cases and pouches offers a variety of stylish options to protect, store and transport photographic gear. The Kata digital photo series combines a number of technologies found in other Kata product lines to create a lightweight, ergonomic and protective line of carrying solutions.

Whether new to photography or a professional shooter, the DPS offers protective, light-weight options that make sure you’ll never miss the shot of a lifetime. Protective technologies integrated into the DPS collection include Thermo Shield Technology (TST) and Yelloop. TST, discreetly integrated into DPS models, is an advanced technology designed to provide superior impact protection for your camera and accessories. Besides allowing shooters to easily see accessories in their DPS bag, Yelloop provides scratch and static protection that is required with today’s sensitive digital cameras. Kata has also focused a significant amount of attention on various construction elements such as Steel Buckles, Reinforced Nycore grid fabric, Elasto Guard, Hypalon zipper-head quiet pockets, DuraFlex and KATA Nylon buckles, all which add to the sleek and elegant designs of the DPS.

Kata’s new DPS Digital Rucksacks, the DR-467 and DR-465, feature TST structural protection and an ergonomic harness for maximum comfort while transporting your gear. The Rucksacks’ bottom camera compartments give users the ability to store a Digital SLR with mounted lens, additional lenses, flash and other essential accessories. The bottom camera compartment is also removable, should the carrier wish to use the Rucksack as a day pack when not shooting. The Digital Rucksacks also feature a large top compartment, which is designed to hold a variety of personal gear or equipment as well as an elements cover to protect your gear from rain or dust. Additional zippered pockets allow quick and easy access to additional supplies and a water bottle. Slightly larger than the DR-465, the DR-467 incorporates a dedicated padded laptop slot which can accommodate up to 17” laptops. If wheel-along transportation is desired, the DR-467 and DR-465 are also compatible with Kata’s Insertrolley system (not included).

Digital SLR users can also use one of seven new DPS Digital Cases. The new models including the DC-433, DC-435, DC-437, DC-439, DC-441, DC-443 and DC-445, extend the range of the DPS and provide shooters with a carrying solution for just about any sized D/SLR, standard zoom lenses and accessories. Each case features TST Rib structural protection, yelloop internal fabric, Modi-Vers dividers to arrange the internal compartment to fit specific needs and a variety of zippered pockets to store a number of items, including chargers, cables, power supplies and more. The DPS shoulder cases also feature Elasto Guard side-pockets and built in pouches designed to hold extra memory cards and batteries. Like the Digital Rucksacks, the Digital Cases feature an included elements cover to protect the enclosed gear from rain and dust.
