Actually, the PWR-HDV will accomodate the PMW-EX1 but it was just such a hassle getting it in and out of the bag expecially with the AT835ST shotgun installed. I like the way you can open up the PCTB-3 fully for easy access to the camera.
thanks again barry,

i went to b&h to check out the pctb-3 today and it's a great bag.
as i suspected, it does not look as big as the dimensions suggested on paper.
the hard cases, pelican and hprc (porta brace) on the other hand looked a lot bigger than the paper dimensions.

the in line style wheels rolled smoothly inside the store.
i did also check out the new crumpler cork and fork backpack inside a roller (2 in 1) as well as 2 rollers from tenba, the roadie small and roadie large (638321 and 638322)

now, i have too many to consider...

one thing is true.
i am beginning to warm up to having the wheels and handlebars built into the bag.
the kata hb-207 with external trolley which served me well last year has its limitations.
