Bag for GL2

As you can see I am new to the site. I actually found this place while I was shopping around for my GL2 the other day. I ended up buying mine from Ultimate Electronics for what seems to be a great deal ($2249.00 + tax). I'm wondering if any of you know which bag would be best to keep my camera in? I am planning to put a 2X doubler on the camer and us it to film wildlife so I'll need room for that. I also want to try to keep everything in one bag so I'll need room for a couple extra batteries, some tapes as well as all the other accessories that came with the camera (charger etc...). I'd prefer a soft case if I can find one. Any ideas?

Thank in advance for your help.

I have recently purchased a KATA CCC103. www.kata-bags.com It's great I keep all my stuff in there wires, cables, and there is plenty of room for lenses mics etc, and its very durable. I got it at B&H like 80.00.

KATA CCC103

I've been looking at getting this bag for a while now. My main concern is travelling. Does anyone have any experience with taking this bag on a flight as a carry-on?

Hi, I got the Kata case that just barely fits the cam and some BASIC accessories. Then I got real smart after a couple shoots on snow and general field and picked up the Tamrac Velocity 9. This is THE bag for the GL2 since you can use it as back pack then swing it with a flick of the wrist to your chest then open up the top and pull out the camera. WAY better for me. There may be similar bag types that fit even better, but this fits pretty darn good plus lots of accessories. Good luck.

Porta Brace

I have a lot of accessories with my GL-2 (filters, matte box, shotgun mic, beachtek, etc). So I got the Porta Brace DV Organizer.

I love it, but it's not exactly a compact travel bag.

Room for almost everything but lights and tripod. Very water resistant too.

That's my bag. You wouldn't believe how versatile and roomy it is. When I don't need everything, I just take the top box. It has all of my BNC, XLR, 1/4" connectors, tapes, lenses, filters, 9v batteries, AA batteries, camera batteries, cords, camera, wireless mic system...

The bottom box has extension cords, tools, gaffers tape, foam bounce board, chargers, and more stuff I can't think of right now. Hell, I can even stand on top of it to shoot over people. Like I said, it is water proof, and solid enough to take some abuse.

Not bad for $35...

FYI for anyone who's interested: I just purchased the KATA MC60 for use with my GL2. It's got plenty of room for the camera (it could actually hold two cameras if necessary), plus all of my accessories. It even has a zippered pocket in the back that could hold a laptop computer, and it's compatible with the KATA wheeled trolley. A real nice case, I'm glad I bought it. $125 at B&H.

I have a Lowepro Nova 5, it fits the camera with the sun hood attached. Then I still have room for some tapes, batteries, wide angle lens and some cables and power adapter. But then it is pretty fully packed, but maybe it is a good thing if you do not want to carry a huge bag around all day.
