Recommend a EA50 camera bag

I want a nice padded camera bag, cheap as possible in terms of price. From a UK store preferably.

Big enough to fit my EA50 body, a couple of prime lenses and a VG20 ... (am I asking for too much lol?)

Any help would be appreciated ...

I'm a big fan of the Petrol cases. B&H recommends Petrol PC206 Deca Mini Camporter or Porta Brace CTC-MINI Traveler Camera Case. Both around $150 to $170 I see the Porta Brace at CVP.com in the UK.

Re: Recommend a EA50 camera bag

James - this fits mine (with the microphone on but the viewfinder off) perfectly and a good price - especially for KATA

There's also internal pockets that will store the viewfinder/batteries etc

Kata CC-195 PL (CC195PL) HDV Case for Canon XL series, JVC HD series and similar sized models or HDSLR rigged with video accessories (internal dimensions:H 24cm x L 58cm x W 27cm) (p/n KT PL-CC-195)

Huh?? Only 45 dollar, a local dealer here charges over 200 euro for this one! That's a bargain.

I've bought from LCD4Video before and they're a pretty good outfit. If I needed another bag I'd get one.

Re: Recommend a EA50 camera bag

I just ordered the Kata 185 too. For $49.00 it is ridiculously cheap. It is a $200.00 bag everywhere else but appears to be discontinued so the Amazon vendor must have picked up a bunch for nothing. I have a ton of bags and cases but I could not pass this one up.

By the way, I am convinced Amazon and other web sites keep "quantities left in stock" at fixed low numbers to stimulate purchasing. I think there has been 5 of then purchased through this thread alone and the number has only changed once. It now says 1 left as it did before I ordered. Get it while you can? They are discontinued.

Bags with wheels

Need to get a decent bag soon too... I'd like to get a bag with wheels if possible. But even if it's well padded, will the tiny vibrations eventually shake things loose, what do you think?

Re: Recommend a EA50 camera bag

Dimitry,

I was not kidding when I said I have a lot of cases. With wheels and not. And I spend a lot of time on the road. I worry about vibrations so no matter what gear it is I have to pick it up sometimes because surfaces that rumble are more common than you think.

My EA50 lives in a BIG pelican case with wheels. It is 60 pounds loaded. I bought the Kata for an airline carry on bag so I don't have to let go of the camera. I don't need wheels for a single camera bag. I hope all of the dimensions inside and out work for that?

I am a big fan of Porta Brace bags and willing to pay the premium for it most of the time. The EA50 fits in my old Porta Brace traveler bags for Canon but not well. For $50.00 I figured I can't loose with this Kata. I can let you know what I think when I get it. I can't imagine this deal lasting long though.

Steve

I can't order the bag in Europe from Amazon, too bad. Here it's 5 times more expensive...

Re: Recommend a EA50 camera bag

The Kata bag just arrived. Wow...what a smokin deal! Fifty bucks for a great bag that works like it was made for the EA50. I thought I owned everyones case, lots of PortaBrace stuff, pelican, etc.

This is my first Kata and I will be looking for more. The bag is more rigid and protective than I expected. It is very well made and designed. For $50.00 it is a steal!

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003BIFNBE/ref=olp_product_details?ie=UTF8&me=&seller=
This is a camera bag, not a gig bag with tons of room. It is just what I need when I travel and want to pull the camera out of the pelican case. I just packed it with, camera, power, wireless mic receiver attached, two wireless mics ( HH & lav ), and media case. The diopter can stay on but I do not intend to carry it this way often.

It came with a rain cover that could be used to cover a tripod mounted camera in an emergency. The lens pillow could be used as a small bean bag for a shooting rest.

At this closeout price they will disappear fast. Grab one if you need it, anything comparable will be $150.00 or more.
