Re: Bag for C300

Thanks Paul,

I have the Think Tank but not the international which is a bit smaller. Have you used it on smaller commuters under the seat in front of you when it won't fit in the small overhead?

Appreciate your input in to buying the C300. As of tomorrow it is the go to camera with my XDCAM kit up for sale and doing it final job today.

Re: Bag for C300

Here are my photos. Note that I have another shotgun with wired handgrip and plug-on transmitter under the 70-200mm lens. I think I wouldn't want to go any higher on any of the dimensions. Height can scrunch to about 10"(any higher and it will get stuck). Width is 11" (will fit under aisle seat, much wider and it won't). Length is about 19" (any longer and it will stick too far into the row.)

According to B&H the interior dimensions of the PC003 are:
17.32 x 9.25 x 8.27" (44 x 23.x 5 21cm) (LxWxH)
which looks like it would be similar.

The exterior dimensions are:
22.83 x 12.60 x 15.35" (58 x 32 x 39cm) (LxWxH)
I don't know what to make of those. It wouldn't fit, but I don't see why they are so different than the interior dimensions.

According to Southwest their dimensions are:
window seat: width 18", height 9 1/2", depth 18"
center seat: width 18 1/2", height 9 1/2", depth 18"
aisle seat: width 10 1/2", height 9 1/2", depth 18"

This sounds consistent with most planes I've gone on. Sometimes the window seat is not as wide because the plane curves in which is why it is important to make sure width is around 11". So at any rate, it might be worth a shot. If the dimensions don't work, then send it back.

Re: Bag for C300

Brett I really appreciate the effort you made to send along the pictures and get a few dimensions.

SouthWest I fly all the time and consider them a big plane. At times I am stuck on Detla (ugh) small commuter 50 seats and under the seats is smaller by about 1" in each direction.

This will help me decide today which to order.

Have Fun

I had no problem on a Dash 8 if that helps.

Just once on a small flight to Guernsey, I don't have a clue what the plane was I'm afraid but it did fit.

The thinkTank bags are great, I really like the fact that it locks shut and that there's a metal security cable in the back that allows you to lock the bag to other objects, I use that loads at shoots where I need to leave my bag in an office or other location where other people might have access to it while I'm out shooting.

Re: Bag for C300

I use a Petrol pc301 works like a charm. Fits airplane overhead, just slightly bigger then allowed hand luggage space if fully packed, but if you slightly press it will fit. And last but not least it offers a lot of padded space to take along the stuff i need.

Re: Bag for C300

Off in a few hours with the C300 on the first of two jobs on the road. I am using my Think Tank Airport roller bag and my LowePro Stealth Reporter for both my C300 and MKIII both as carry on. Will see how this setup works and decide if I need better options. The C300 on Movcam rig is all together but folded up a bit so it fits in the Think Tank. About 60-90 sec to have it hon my shoulder ready to shoot.

If this works well I will post pics when back in the office.

Re: Bag for C300

Hey fellas,

thanx for all the feedback. Just wanted to check back in and let you all know which route I went.

I went with the Kata OMB-75:
Kata OMB-75 One Man Band Bag, Medium KT OMB-75 B&H Photo Video

Its a perfect fit no matter if its just the camera or a fully rigged up konfiguration.

Cheers,
Clemens

That fits in an overhead?

Re: Bag for C300

Packed for a week shooting after learning from a week shoot last week both with 5D MKIII and C300 plus audio, tripod, 4 lens, plus loads of extras. .

I have been using my Think Tank Airport Security for the C300 with full rig and it works great.

Have my LowePro DryZone loaded up with audio and extras, plus a Storm IM2950 with big gear.

My 5D MKIII with glass is in a LowePro Stealth Reporter D400 AW. The Stealth Reporter D400 AW is excellent for the MKIII and four lens and extras.

Carry on the Think Tank, Dry Zone, and producer carries on my Stealth Reporter. Great system with lots of gear.

Happy to post pictures when I get back next weekend while unpacking.

No chance. But it fits my everyday production needs :-)
In case of flying I'll put the cam in my lowepro Stealth Reporter D550W. That fits overhead perfectly but for everyday production life the Kata is WAY more safe.

Cheers

Re: Bag for C100

I am looking for a bag for my C100.

Rather than start a new thread I wondered if anyone has used the Petrol PC-302 or older PCBT-3 with their C300 (or even a new C100) and has any comments?

I appreciate the cam will need to be broken down to remove handle and grip but I really need something suitable for aircraft carry-on overhead bins and I like the idea of a roller bag that could also be used as a backpack when needed. Ability to carry my 15-inch MBP is also a boon.

I have several bags and most are Petrol as I am very pleased with their quality, design and protection so, although I will consider other options, those are the two bags I am focussing in on - at the moment.

So anyone using either of these with Cinema EOS cams got any good or bad points to share?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Bag for C300

Bumpety bump. Anyone used these specific Petrol bags got any comments?

I need to push the button on this early in the New Year as I've got work lined up for the C100 and I'll need a bag to lug it (and a few lenses) around in pretty soon.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Bag for C300

I'm using a newer Petrol bag, the PC002. It's the smallest bag you could get away with. I fit a C300 + the following accessories snuggly in the bag:

70-200 f4
17-55 f2.8
Zacuto target shooter
3 batteries + cards
filters + white balance disk
Super-cardiod mic + cable

And I can squeeze an additional prime lens in if I need to.

The C300 and 70-200 can sit upright without being dismantled, apart from the LCD/handle, which need to slide off (I can leave the cables in tact). The way I have them sitting, the f2.8 version of the 70-200 would also be fine.

If I had to buy a replacement bag, I would buy the same one. It's slick, small, and fits easily into overhead. When I need more gear (which is usually the case) I take an accessory bag. I prefer two small bags (with the option of one) to something large.

Re: Bag for C300

Great info and suggestion Josh.

Looking hard at that bag now, or just maybe the next size up Petrol, PC003. I like the logic of keeping it small though. For sure I would need to ditch the idea of carrying the MBP within these particular bag types though so thinking hard about that now.

Re-read all of this thread and there is some great info here!

Decisions...decisions....
