Camera case question...

I need a good camera case for 2 HMC150s and some misc equipment, but I have no clue what to get. Here in cincy, there's really nowhere to go look at cases to see what would work, so I thought I would ask on here.

I'd really like a hard case with wheels and a telescoping handle, but if not, no big deal. I'll be using this primarily for weddings. My budget is about $250, but flexible if need be. At a minimum, though, it needs to hold 2 cameras and camera accessories, including batteries, charger, misc lens adapters, and other small stuff, like cleaning accessories.

I'm torn between having a smaller case for just cameras and accessories with lighting/audio in separate cases, or a huge case that would hold EVERYTHING including audio and lighting. What do you all think? Would you all recommend carrying each camera in a separate case?

Thanks,
Dan

I bought a large pelican case with wheels for 200$ at a place called calumet in phili.

It easily holds my DVX100 my super 8, tripod, extra batteries, dof adapter, and other stuff...

It has the cutouts where you can custom fit everything. Its probably been one of my best purchases yet, and for the price it couldn't be beat.

I'm pretty sure it would fit your two HMC's plus some other stuff.

It's basically calumets brand. It's not an official pelican case. I use pelican cases at work and the one I have compares to them in quality on every level.

Here's the link if your interested http://www.calumetphoto.com/item/RM2465/
