Looks Interesting

I need to look at that a little closer. The only problem I see is there may not be much room for padding.

cool case

Hi
I can't make out clearly with the angle of the picture of the case. Is the xl1 stored with its len attached? It looks like the mike is, and is that a ma100 at the back?

It looks great though. Can you please note the model number of the case.

You can't see that the lens is on the XL1?.
Do you see the lens hood.? Craftsman 24 in Truck Tote

Here is the link to the case from SEARS.

Good Business

I just purchased the Canon MA-100 XLR adaptor from Mark for $125 with shipping. I sent my check out on Monday and recieved the adaptor on Saturday. It was an excelent transaction. I am very pleased.

I don't think that link is working. Do this go to www.sears.com
Then go to the ("Search by Keyword or Item #") and put this number in the box and click on ("GO") it should bring you right to it.

I saw the sears website. I am convinced now. Probably drop by our local sears to check it out and buy one.

Yes I saw the lens hood but could not tell if the body of the lens was there.

I would like to put some padding or foam at the bottom or sides to keep the xl1s from swimming inside the case during transport.

Thanks a lot for the tip

Do what I did I made a thin board that fits on the bottom of the case and cut out the parts of the board where the xl1 sits and laced stapes though the board with Velcro to hold the XL1 in place.

No need for the foam.

Mark,

Sorry for not replying sooner. I've crashed my W2k machine and it may be awhile before I have it up.

Padding around the cam for mechanical shock protection. Good idea about lacing the cam to a bottom board.

Thanks for letting us know about the great fit. I will probably get one because I don't know if I will buy a Pelican case.

COOL CASE! Even has room for a spare GL1!
A bit bulkier than the Porta Brace CTC (which I have been able to carry aboard planes) but I'm sure it cost a whole lot less. Nice to see the creativity out there. It'll be worth thinking about if I go to doing 2-camera shoots.

cheers!

This was a really great suggestion. I just bought the last ones at the local Sears store. Lots of puzzled looks!! Now does anyone have a suggestion for some kind of case/bag for a fairly heavy-duty Manfrotto triod (Bogen #3246)? As with the Sears product, inexpensive and low budget are operative words. Thanks.

Being an ex tennis pro, I have found that my heavy duty equipment bags are the perfect size for tripods. I carry 2 tripods with heads several reel extension cords and a few misc. things in it. The only problem is that it gets heavy! ;-)
