Hard case for the A1?
 
I did a search and was only able to find soft-side cases (Kata, Zoomiverse) for the A1, but I am looking for a hard-side case...does anyone have any suggestions as to what to get?

Thanks in advance. :)

pelican 1550 or 1510

I agree, the Pelican cases are the best deal for the money.

I have a pelican 1510, holds the camera and extras nicely and is good for carry on airline travel.

You can see pics of my A1 in the case @ http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showpost....9&postcount=45

Is that a GL2 next to your A1 in the pic you linked to?

SKB also makes MIL-Spec waterproof cases that will fit the XH-A1.
I use the 3I-2011-7B-C. In my geographic area, the only cases I could buy were from a local music store, and they carried SKB.

yes. It is a canon GL2 but it does NOT go in the 1510 WITH the A1 :)

I have the Pelican 1520.

Bryan Gilchrist October 6th, 2007 12:09 AM

No one seems to have the 1510 in stock, so I may have to go for the 1520 or 1550.

Thanks for the input, though! :)

Bill Watson October 6th, 2007 02:22 AM

Nothing wrong with the 1520.

It's a fraction smaller than the 1510 but you can still fit in the lens hood, spare batteries, extra tapes, a mike, lens' and whatever.

Plus, it's lighter.

Better colour range too. I got a yellow one. High vis. and better heat deflection.

Josh Chesarek October 6th, 2007 05:54 AM

B&H has it I think...

It is listed in Stock there.

Shiv Kumar October 6th, 2007 11:20 AM

Would someone mind listing the "other" things that one needs to buy along with the case?

Looking at this link:

What else does one need? I mean the cutout for the A1 in the foam etc. I'm not very clear how it works for the A1?

Thanks.

Shiv.

Josh Chesarek October 6th, 2007 10:21 PM

The kit there comes with a full foam block. You then lay out what you want to put in the form. Once you have everything laying on top where you want it, mark it off somehow, I just shoved my finger to break the foam apart, and then pull out the sections of foam you don't need. So, you create your own template, not buy one. Make what ever holes you want. The only accessory I got for it was the 1519 lid organizer which I think is worth it. It gives you lots of extra zip pockets to store things in. You can see it in use in the photos I linked to above.

I use a Storm Case 2750 for my XH-A1.
It gives me room for the XH-A1 mounted to the Canon TA-100 on a Hyson base Plate with 12" rails and a 4x4 matte Box mounted.
Along with room for the Canon WD-H72 wide angle lens & Hood,
Marshall V-R70P-HDA Monitor, Hoodman H700, Noga arm, 2 IDX batteries,
Extra Batteries for the XH-A1, Monitor Cables, and a few DV tapes.
All in a nice roll-around package.

I use a smaller Storm Case 2500 to carry my 9 Zeiss prime lenses
along with my Brevis 35, charger, and ND Filters.

I am using this one and it`s cheap and excellent.
