The Tamrac Corona is a versatile camera bag that's able to transform into a sling bag or traditional camera backpack whilst having a modular and easy to access storage system for your kit. It's available in 3 different sizes - Corona 14, Corona 20 and Corona 26. On test here is the smallest of the 3, the Corona 14, that can fit a DSLR with attached lens and multiple lenses or flash units. 

Tamrac Corona 14 Backpack Features

The Corona 14 features 2 straps that can be unclipped and modified to make the bag a sling style carrier as well as a traditional backpack. There are slider pockets behind each strap to stow away the one not used when the bag is worn as a sling. The back of the bag is well padded around the shoulder blades and small of the back. 


On top there is a robust carry handle and a loop strap which helps to secure a tripod along with a clip on the front. A double zipped flap on the front at the top gives access to the personal items compartment, large enough to stow a waterproof coat and a small lunchbox. 

The bottom double zipped flap gives access to the gear compartment, featuring padded dividers that can be moved to accommodate your gear. There are also two side zip flaps giving you alternative entry points to your gear. On the inside of all the flaps you'll find see through zipping pockets for your smaller accessories. The divider between the camera compartment and the personal compartment can also be removed if you want.


On the back there is a laptop compartment that's well padded and can fit a device of up to 13 inches. The bag is compatible with the Arc system - a series of Tamrac Accessories, such as pouches and waist belts, which can be purchased separately and attach to your bag to further accommodate your exact needs.  

The bag comes with a waterproof rain cover.
