Bag for the XM2 ??
I've looked for bags for my XM2 but all of them are too small, which bag do you use? Does anyone know where to find a good bag for the XM2?

thanks! /Jesper

look at the lowe pro bags. I have the commercial aw (an older model) and it holds my GL2, my azden mic, a small ZR10, all my batteries, my Sony f717 camera and my big flash unit, along with my chargers and cords! It may be more than you need but for me it's the perfect bag. I also use a Canon backpack camera bag for hiking and other times when my big bag is not practical. I know Tamrac also makes some long bags, as do others.

i've seen the canon backpack bag but i though it was too small for the XM2? or maybe you have a different model.
thanks by the way!

Bag for XM2/GL2
I use a Lowepro Vidcam 6 for my XM2.
Have lots of space for extra accessories like light, batteries...
(Designed for camcorders up to the XL1s)

The Lowepro Vidcam 5 is for camcorders up to the XM2/GL2.
Or you might try the Lowepro Commercial AW DV.

Thanx for the advices mon amis!

I went with the Lowepro Vidcam 5. Nice small bag. Won't fit the wide angle, but it fits the camera, the charger,the av wires and batteries.

Of course it can fit tapes too.

I have a Lowepro Nova 5. It'll fit the XM2 and then some. It's very well padded with lots of pockets. The only regret I have is that I should have gone with the Nova 6, so I can fit 3 of my cams and stuff in there. (I can only fit 2 cams in the Nova 5.)

Re: Bag for the XM2 ??
I know you asked for a bag, but I use a Hard case... it works really well and (IMO) protects your cam much more than a bag would. It also has compartments for accessories.

Model: HC-4100

hard cases
take a look at the pelican cases. I think they'd take as much impact and they are totally waterproof. I just did a 4.5 day river trip and used a large pelican to keep my stuff dry. very good, reasonable prices.
