Does anyone recognize this Sony camera bag from the FS7 promotional video from Sony - seems like perfect size for carrying the FS7K in the field.

Another view - apparently I can only post one pic at a time.

Here is the link to the promotional video - the camera bag is shown at about 1 minute into the video.

That appears identical to my LCS-G1BP though I don't know if Sony make different sized versions of the same design.

Buy - Sony LCS-G1BP (LCSG1BP) Soft Carry Case for HVR-V1E, HDR-FX7E, HVR-Z1 and HDR-FX1 Camcorders

Regards

Thank you very much David - that is it!! It appears to be only available in Europe. I checked dimensions and the FS7K will definitely fit. Is this a new item or have you had it for awhile? I can order through CVP but the postage is rather dear!

Actually, I think it has been discontinued and CVP may get one in by end of November so I ordered a new one off EBay - coming from Korea! From what I can determine on the video that shows the d.p. getting the camera out of the bag (going frame by frame) it is a tight but doable fit (the microphone mount comes up about 20mm) but should be workable. I like the idea of taking the entire camera out of the bag in an upright position and using it quickly + the bag height should be ok for overhead luggage racks on an airplane.

I had a chance to go to Sony and have a look at the FS7. I'm really impressed with it. Here's the blog I wrote about it.

I'm curious about this, too. It's essential. This article in German says that the camera will cache record. Sony PXW-FS7; S35mm Schulterkamera

Re: New Sony FS7 4K XDCAM at IBC 2014

I have this camera on order and I wonder if it has a sensor cleaning system? I'll be using it in a few dusty places and changing lenses often so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. My Canon 5D has been used in similar places and not a speck of dust has reared its ugly little head. My Hasselblad, on the other hand, needs a blow from the rocket as soon as you lift it out the bag. I've checked the specs but can't see any mention.
