Any advice would be greatly appreciated
Thanks

the small one says its for the hvx, which is more then enough room then the hmc150 i assume so depending on how much extra gear you need to carry around you can save the extra 50 bucks

i use this for my dvx :( (right now)

http://www.activerideshop.com/!ur7dLDkCjrcgR6okXV479w!/Ogio-Ty-Video-Backpack

fits the dvx and a nikon d50, lens for the nikon, century ultra fisheye, case of tapes, battery charger, filters, my laptop and still has room

it can fit up to a dvx and hvx side by side in it

and it doesn't have "steal me im a camera bag" on it

thats my own view on camera bags but if the ones you are asking about are more what you need i think the small would be sufficient enough for the hmc150 plus other stuff, just depends on how much stuff you want to bring around

After I posted , "steal me im a camera bag" ,was the first thing I tought about these bags.
I would need to carry some xlr cables , mattebox ,mic and lunch and maybe a laptop.
I need something that will keep the cam safe and the mattebox and protect me from the "locals" :)
Thanks tashbee
I hope to hear more from other users.

Those 16x9 inc bags look great. I'd get the small one which is still pretty big. Great that you can fit the camera with mattebox. That is hard to find in smaller bags and a bag that isn't wide enough definitely snags the mattebox!

I use what I had lying around, a porta brace large run bag (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/152797-REG/Porta_Brace_RB_4_RB_4_Lightweight_Run_Bag.html) that I got from a TV station, it fits my entire audio kit as well. It's nice to carry cam+audio in one bag but it is a _BIG_ bag. I bump into things carrying it, etc.

i would really stay away from the ty bag. its flimsy construction makes it very uncomfortable on your back and zippers are prone to blow out(i went through 3). if you're going to go with a backpack, hands down the kata hb-207. it may be a bit pricey but its build quality and comfort are through the roof compared to the ogio ty2.

I know what you mean with Big bag a dp friend of mine has got the same, he carries his dvx and or sony z1 .It can get very clumsy but is very roomy.I believe he got it from the cable station he' s working for , hmmm.

Got any pics of what the inside looks like or a pic of your gear in it? Looks like a good-sized bag with a pretty good price tag attached to it.

Well, i'm using a tool bag with carpet padding.... :)

http://www.dvxuser6.com/uploaded/40546/1223518355.jpg


I ordered the shooter's package (comes with a bag, mic, and extended battery) , but have only received the camera so far...

so, this has to do for me until my gear ships. ( hopefully soon)....

LOL. As much as i want the bag and mic to show up, it's the extended batteries i'm clicking my heels about. I'm waiting on batteries from 2 stores. IN STOCK my ass. HAHAHAHA

Any other DIY bags out there? One i saw recently was a canon x-something being pulled out of a plastic tool or tackle box. I think it even had chunks of foam inside to keep the cam from sliding around.

Yup. Porta Brace are the best and they wear like iron. Although I'm sure the Petrol and 16x9 bags are close

I've decided on a porta brace.
Will save for a backpack next year

Would theire be room to carry a boompole with it ?

manglerBMX
10-10-2008, 06:25 AM
the bag is 30" long and my boom pole is about 36"(when i take mount off), but depends on your boom.

shrigg
10-10-2008, 06:58 AM
Mind you, that bag is _big_ and maybe the next size down would be less unwieldy. Here is a picture of my Gitzo boom pole not quite fitting into the side pocket."Missed it by _that_ much!"

It's a Porta Brace RB-4 Extra Large Run Bag. Below is my original post (http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showpost.php?p=1426592&postcount=6) about the bag for B&H link.

10-10-2008, 08:41 PM
Yeah, I keep two chargers, 3 batteries, mattebox and french flag, 4x4 filters, wireless audio kit, ME66 shotgun mic, headphones, HDMI and component cables, even a monopod that fits in the side pocket although that may be the first thing to go when I try to slim down the bag (it's heavy, imagine that!)

What about this one? would the camera with a rode ntg2 mic another battery and some other goodies fit?

Hmmm shoot ,maybe I can use it as a walking stick.
I was looking at this (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/421940-REG/Rode__NTG_2_Shotgun_Microphone.html) rode ntgII kit from B&H ,probably the sameone as Ilauzirika mentioned .I cant find the minimumlength ot the Boom pole that comes with this kit.
Will this fit. I dont want get a larger bag.
I would like to carry audio and video in one bag, especially if I have to travel abroad or inland.

A quick scan of boom poles at B&H (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?shs=gitzo%20boom%20pole&ci=0&sb=ps&pn=1&sq=desc&InitialSearch=yes&O=RootPage.jsp&A=search&Q=*&bhs=t) reveals several that would fit inside my bag's side pocket. For me the biggest reason to have a bag this big is the extra width to fit the HMC150+mattebox. I would consider selling this bag to get something a little smaller and mattebox-specific to be honest since I don't reaally need to carry a boom pole or monopod. Interested parties can PM me... because I'm eyeing that 16x9inc Small Bag. :Drogar-Love(DBG):

I strongly second the Petrol bag.

I have two that I really like and having two cameras I can bring both bags.. or I can fit both cams into the larger wheeled bag.

I have the Kata dolly bag and it's simply awesome. They make the best inside inserts of any bag I've ever seen with more comparments and options than anything. Even comes with a laptop case and I picked it up.. as a store model for 150 bucks.. So I highly recommend that.

can't find it online...


2nd bag I have and use all the time is the lowepro backpack. It hauls tons of stuff and i look like a dorky camper.. It doesn't scream expensive camera bag like the Kata bags and such.. just looks like a dork and there's nothing better than a backpack for outdoor shoots here in FL.

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/370630-REG/Lowepro_LP34705_PEF_CompuTrekker_Plus_AW_Backpack. html


i highly recommend both of them.... and I think that you can't skimp on a bag that carries and protects all of your gear... and I'm also not one of those dudes that likes a pelican case... unless I'm shipping it or it's going into a grip truck.. Then I'll bust that case out, but otherwise that's a giant albatros...

shrigg
11-27-2008, 09:46 AM
Yeah working out of a pelican case is not realistic. Lugging one to the shoot is bad enough. A decent bag is nice to have nearby to throw stuff into etc. A pelican large enough to hold camera + audio would be so big it wouldn't fit in my car. I pride myself on having a production company that fits in an Acura, lol

I just picked up a Cinebags HD25 Revolution backpack and must say this is pretty much the bag i have been looking for. So far seems pretty well built maybe not as well as my old Kata 207 but this is much lighter and not as obtrusive IMO.

11-27-2008, 10:55 AM
I have a stormcase with wheels, best purchase i'v done (after the camera itself). But in the future I'll be picking a lowepro backpack, cause the stormacase and the backpack have different uses.

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/514190-REG/HPRC_AMRE2700WF_AMRE_2700WF_Wheeled_Foam.html
i just got my hmc150 and this case should be in in a couple days.
my logic for this choice was:
hard case = protection
it should be large enough to also hold (if my math is right):
a matte box
a letus35 extreme w/ rails system (once i save up a few more ducats)
my clapper (old school film guy. i need a clapper) and white card/color cards
batteries, memory cards, and cords
filters
i'll have a better idea on a couple days once she comes in, but it looks like it should all fit

I use Cinebags production bags for my DVX and HVX, which hold everything and a little more; for the HMC, I wanted something a bit smaller since In most cases it would be coming along as a second camera and wouldn't need quite so much extra material.

In the end I bought a Kata CC-192, which is really nice for the HMC and all the basic accessories, plus a little more. While not quite a hard case, it's pretty crush-proof; has nice padding inside and a strap to hold the camera in place, and a big outside pocket. Less than $100... I'd recommend it to anyone who wants something small and light, but more than big enough!

Hi there,

I use the stormcase im2500 and it really feels safe. Here is a photo of the inside.

I also thought that the first case I shuld buy was a hard case (I prefer to have my 3.440€ investemnt in a hard case). Next year or in the following one I'll buy a backpack for those long walking shooting days.

Where did you find it for less than $100? My shoulder wants a small bag for Christmas :Drogar-Love(DBG):

Some quick measuring shows that I could probbly stuff my HMC+Chrosziel in that bag. That'd be sweet!

I don't know if I already posted this but I love the Ogio Ty Video 2. Plenty of room, comfortable, and safe. I have my hmc, letus extreme, rails, all accesories and extras with room to spare. And best part is, the bag was like $150.

i have the storm im2500 and really love it. but now that i have the sgblade on the camera with rails, im looking for something that would be able to accommodate all that stuff hopefully even with a matte box that will be arriving soon. i was thinking maybe a big soft case. any recommendations?

i was able to fit just camera and sgblade in the case but i had to move the rails all the way back and remove all the foam except one layer at the bottom. im only using this setup as a dust cover/place to store my camera for now.

i also have the kata cc-192 and while it is a very nice and customizable shoulder bag, i've discovered that it is only good for walking short distances!

my next bag will be a backpack type that has 3 key advantages:
1. doesn't look like a special camera bag
2. sooooo much easier to carry around!
3. possible to strap accessories/tripod to the outside
