    PICTOOLS: GREAT VALUES FOR THE SERIOUS PHOTOGRAPHER


 Press Releases

  • Hampstead, MD- January 16, 2019  OmegaBrandess  is pleased to announce the U.S. distribution of the belgian sport optics brand KITE OPTICS and its new photo bag concept, VIATO.  A revolutionary and comfortable carrying solution for your essential camera gear.

    Photographers of Nature, wildlife, landscape… anyone who goes out in the field. They all know traditional camera bags, their pros and cons.

    Big camera luggage will allow you to take all your gear. But they are not very practical to take along on every small or one-day hike. Usually you know quite well which lenses, camera body and tripod you’ll need when leaving the car, your house or hotel room. At that moment you can easily switch to a smaller and lighter carrying system. And that’s where the VIATO comes in handy.

    The Viato backpack uses the inner space of the tripod through an intelligent and unique patented design, offering 915 cubic inches of storage space, sufficient to hold all your essential gear for a day of nature photography, bird watching or just hiking. You can use the Viato with tripod legs and central column extended or retracted, or just as well without the tripod as an everyday backpack.

    Keep your instrument mounted on the tripod, or safely store it. Either way, from the second you slip the bag from your back, you are instantly ready to start shooting or observing! No hassle, no fuss. Just as fast as you have set up, you’re able to leave for the next location. And that’s the game changer!

    Mounted inside the tripod, it brings you a table-like platform to work on. Magnets will keep the hatches of the waterproof backpack open, allowing you to switch lenses, put down a notebook or take out a bottle of water without ever having to kneel down or put your gear on wet grass, dusty soil or sand.

    But most important is the incredible comfort the Viato backpack offers. It does not take long before you forget you’re actually carrying a complete tripod and camera gear, ready to shoot. Try it to believe it.

    The Viato will be available late February/early March from photo specialty stores, at a suggested retail price of $229.99.

  • VIATO TRIPOD BACKPACK
    VIATO...A UNIQUE CONCEPT!<br /><br />OMEGABRANDESS IS PROUD TO BE NAMED U.S. DISTRIBUTOR FOR THE VIATO TRIPOD BACKPACK BY KITE-OPTICS<br /><br />...

  • The Viato Tripod Backpack uses the inner space of the tripod through an intelligent and unique patented design, offering 915 cubic inches of storage space, sufficient to hold all your essential gear for a day of nature photography, bird watching or just hiking.

    FAST AND EASY

    The bag is easily fixed to any tripod. You may keep the legs retracted  during your long walks, or simply keep them extended. Keep your instrument mounted on the tripod, or safely store it.

    Either way, from the second you slip the bag from your back, you are    instantly ready to start shooting or observing! No hassle, no fuss.

    EXCEPTIONAL COMFORT

    The large back panel and straps are padded and feature a ventilated mesh. The bottom of the waterproof Viato bag is also strongly padded, protecting fragile gear such as lenses, cameras and binoculars.

    But there may be no need to ever put this backpack on the ground.  Mounted inside the tripod, it brings you a table-like platform to work on.  Magnets will keep the hatches of the backpack open, allowing you to switch lenses, put down a notebook or take a bottle of water without ever having to kneel down or put your gear on wet grass, dusty soil or sand.

    The Viato Tripod Backpack is unlike anything else on the market.  No other company makes a backpack that is   designed for the photographer shooting on a tripod, that allows them to quickly move their setup from one spot to another without breaking down their rig.  The camera can stay mounted on the tripod while the photographer carries it on their back.  See the video below for a visual tour showing just how easy it is to setup & work with the Viato Tripod Backpack…
