Paul it works great with the Z1. Lots of options with the dividers and you will be able to carry everything you need for a long trip.

I think you will be very happy Paul. Mine has been a workhorse. Mine you can use as a roller bag or a backpack. I think they have improved the backpack system and the roller bag system is excellent.

Alternate bag for the EX-1

After looking at many EX-1 bags, I ended up with a bag built for 3 bowling balls. Costs half of what a designed for EX-1 bag costs, and it has solid wheels.

Packing everything in the Airport Acceleration

Little did I know the purchase wouldn't be the end of the thinking process :)

Now I have to work out which dividers go where to fit everything in.

I've used the camera/bag combo on a couple of shoots and I'm loving it. But I have some stuff coming up which will require wireless mics and I don't want to carry the hard flight case I usually lug my mic gear around in.

Pulling the main bits out and sub-bagging the little bits and pieces I now have everything in and still actually have some space for more bits and pieces. The bag does seemt o swallow it all up. Weights getting up there but it's not changing the size of the bag obviously so should still be fine for flying.

Agree if properly packed it will swallow up a lot of gear and still be carry on safe. Great bag for the EX1.

Think different

I have two EX1's. One in a small camerabag and one in a Stanley 24" series 2000 toolbox. I like both. The toolbox is lightweight and sturdy, one can sit and even stand on it. It has room for the EX1 and some extras. I made a compartment and glued some pieces camping sleeping mat inside, I sprayed the two yellow lids black. The toolbox was 22 euro plus some handywork. I drive to locations by car.

Love my pelican 1510. I would never go with a soft case. Hard cases allow for maximum security, are waterproof, can double as apple box, seat or other. I can fit my EX1, 2 lav setups, on camera light, shotgun, headphones 3 batteries, 3 cards, charger, small roll of gaff, cords, wide angle, white balance cards, xlr cables and misc in there. Why you would ever risk a 10k investment in a soft case is a mystery to me.....


oh.. and it is carry on legal for EVERY airline and airplane size, including those tiny CRJ or RJ's delta connections fly. They say the won't fit, but they do, with no problem!

Annen, do you use the "pick 'n pluck" foam that comes with the case or do you use the blue dividers instead. Would you be willing to post a photo with it loaded and ready for transport?

had the pick n pluck at firs then traded out for the padded dividers, which were a much better choice.

Thanks for the pix, Annen. I'd be SO worried about that mic holder, though. I took mine off and got the flat plate coldshoe mount instead:
DM-Accessories - EX-FLAT - Shoe Mounts for Sony EX1 & EX3 Camcorders

Just one less piece sticking up to get broken off.

Not worried about mine. Barely touches the upper foam. I am just aware of how hard i set it down as the viewfinder is the lowest point, but with a BHP 60 battery, it is all even
