Thanks

I recommend the Pelican PC1500B, PC1550B, or PC1600B.

The PC1500B is the smallest you would want for the HD10, the PC1600B is probably the largest, the PC1550B is right in the middle.

You can do a search on these at B&H (bhphotovideo.com), prices range from $80 - $120 (roughly).

We have the PC1500B (the smallest of the three). It fits our HD10, a Tiffen filter pack fully loaded, 3 batteries, and our battery charger (and some other misc. small items). All 3 cases have the "pick n' pluck foam" so you can basically arrange the case any way you want.

However, if I were to do it again I would get at least the PC1550B (and probably the PC1600B) simply because the fit was a little tight vertically for the HD10 with the PC1500B. We were able to remove some of the foam from the top of the case to make it fit, but I always like more room.

The Pelican cases are great in general.

One other consideration. We went with the Pelican 1520 'cause it is legal carry-on size for air travel.

Try taking a look at cases made by RIMOWA. I have 2 of them now, and one was purchased on EBAY for $22! They are excellent cases, made in W. Germany, mostly used in Europe. The quality of these cases is outstanding.

The RIMOWA cases are cool looking.
I bought a Pelican 1600 on Ebay $124.00 including shipping.
Thanks
