Backpack for fs7

Does anyone know of a backpack that could hold an assembled fs7?

Thanks-

Re: Backpack for fs7

I can get my assembled FS7 into a CineBags CB-25B Revolution Backpack as long as I take off the viewfinder loupe. I put it in a soft draw-string carrying case (came with a Canon lens a long time ago) and shove it in the compartment with the FS7.

I love this backpack on planes and trains. Still plenty of room for a computer, headphones, batteries, charger and even a small extra lens or two.

Re: Backpack for fs7

I should have mentioned, for the Lowepro back pack, I also have to remove the viewfinder. It goes into a padded division next to the camera. The handle will sit a bit proud of the compartment, but it will zip shut over it. I don't have to remove the mic, but normally I take it off. I have rotated the mic holder 180 degrees so it sits lower than the stock configuration. I have some pictures of the camera in the bag and will upload when I can find them.

The deep pockets on either side can accommodate a VCT-14 plate.

Oh, and I should have mentioned that I take the grip off. I don't normally have it on the camera at all so it slipped my mind. It might fit with the grip on but I don't recall.

Also I vote for the CineBags CB-25B Revolution Backpack. Many years hard travel, since it's earliest incarnation, and all going well.

Lowepro Pro Trekker 650 AW. Waist belt can be removed. Camera with mic, hand grip and viewfinder detached. I could fit a medium and small lens in the bag as well. Due to the handle sticking up in the middle, I wouldn't put a laptop in the back pocket. Comfortable shoulder straps. If you really wanted to keep your hand grip attached, you could re-arrange the dividers to accomplish that.
