I know this is a little O/T, but has anyone used the JVC hard case? If so what are you thoughts on the function and fit. I will be using AB batteries and possibly the 13x lens.

Kata will hold HD100 plus rhinoceros

Seriously, the Kata HD-CC-3 will hold the HD100 with matte box on, A/B Dionic 90 on, follow focus on, and with three inches to spare in length, I put my regular lens hoods in front of the entire assemblage described above.

It also has a hard shell pocket in front that holds two additional Dionic 90 batteries perfectly, plus a hard pocket on the back that will hold several filters, etc. I use the big side pocket to hold the second (stock) lens and two small A/B chargers.

With this much space inside, of course the exterior dimensions are large as well, so I don't think this would make it as carry-on luggage. It can be had from Studio Depot in Hollywood for $292, but lists for $369.

If you browse the Kata site, will quickly see that in addition to camera cases they make bullet-proof body armor (match that, Porta-Brace) for police/military, possibly also useful for any video paparazzi visiting this forum.

Here's the URL for the HD-CC-3:

I think those 2 Porta bags are the same. We got that one with the free rain coat. Plenty of room for the lens, hood, and IDX batt all attached.

I use the Portabrace (can't read the product model, looks like W PC). Works fine.
