Re: Bag for C300

I was looking for a bag that would allow me to store my Canon C100 in an upright position with handle attached. I settled on the Tenba Roadie II HDSLR/Video Shoulder Bag. The Roadie II could easily hold two C100's without breaking down the camera next to each other. Another plus is all the dividers that come with the bag which allows for various custom solutions. The side pockets are pretty big it holds a 312 LED with Sony L batteries comfortably. A cable management bag also fits comfortable on top of my accessories on the left.

The Roadie II shoulder bag comes with an additional tray/audio bag (not shown in the photos) that should you wish to break down the C100 you could fit two on the lower level and place the additional tray/bag on top of the of the C100's to store other accessories. I opted not to break down my C100.

Re: Bag for C300

Very useful, thanks - might well go for this for my C100 MkII. It is a bit pricey though. I saw a blog where someone said they use one of these - Sachtler Bags Dr. Bag - 3 (replacement for Petrol PC003), but the dimensions don't seem to add up to me - I also want to keep the camera fully assembled. It is over 11" high with the handle on yet the internal dimension of this bag is 8.3" so I'm puzzled why the blogger said he could use it with the camera fully assembled. Anyone know this bag?

Re: Bag for C300

Hi, yes I use that bag (mine is a Petrol PC003).

You can sit the C100 fully assembled with a 70-200 lens. There's also room for another lens standing upright and a few batteries. Not too much else though.

I use it when I have to fly as it sits in the overhead compartment.

Re: Bag for C300

Thanks, very useful info. It is noticeably smaller than the Tenba Roadie which has pros and cons. Flying is not a big issue for me as it won't happen much but general portability is. Quite a bit cheaper too. Going to go for it.

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

Cheers,

The Kata bags are great. Tall and deep enough. I have the OMB and use it for all my batteries and chargers. For the C300, the best find was a CCC-3 Kata bag, it is really big and can just handle the c300 built up on a Zacuto rig, so you don't have to break it down. Unfortunately, Kata has discontinued all of these models, I think, as of 2015.

I went back to a good old Porta-Brace broadcast camera bag for the MarkII and it works great. It has the bump out for the Gratical viewfinder, so I don't have to remove that. It is also long enough to take the Mark II with the cine lens attached. I've also used a Kata broadcast camera bag, I have old ones from my HDX900 and betacam, but didn't like it being so narrow.

Re: Bag for C300

For carry-on purposes, I have flown with the C300 packed into the Pelican 1510. It fits quite well with enough room for lenses and accessories. Plus, if you get put on a small plane, you can gate check the camera and not worry so much about breakage.

Usually, my main concern is having a case I can work out of during the shoot. I don't want to break the cameras down every day if I am not traveling. Soft cases are fine out of the vehicle and allow me to place the camera back into the case when going from here to there by car. The biggest problem I have found is finding a bag that is tall enough, then second to that is wide enough.

The C300 is tall to begin with, then add the monitor assembly and my Zacuto top handle.... all on a vct base. It is very tall. I also have an older Porta-Brace production case 3 that was tall enough to handle the C300 built up, but wasn't practical day-to-day.
