I've been very pleased with my Petrol PCCB-2N. As value for money goes it's hard to beat - as a trip around the Video Forum in London proves.

I have used the Tamrac 2249 for many years going from the XL-1, XL-1s and now the XL-2, It is a very good scholder bag. Foe traveling I use the Tamrac "strong box" with rollers. Bob

Hi,
I have got 'Lowepro Commercial AV shoulder bag'. It is a soft case with hard bottom but I like it very much. Good quality, raincover etc. I have had it for 4 years now. Took it four times on the flight to the UK as hand luggage, no problems.

My camcorder fits really nicely as if it was cut specially for the XL2. It sits there almost fully assembled - I always detach a mic first because there some pressure on it. Not that much it would break but the foam deforms. When I travel on the plane I sometimes take off the viewfinder, wrap it and put it next to cam - in the huge crowd somebody might damage it. Other than that I never detach a viewfinder.

I love the Kata backpack for the xl2. It's well padded and built well (they also make Kevlar body armor). The camera can slide In fully assembled, and it's easy to get out. There is lots of room for accessories. I once rode my bike around Yosemite Valley with the bag and a carbon fiber tripod lashed to the side. I made many stops where cars couldn't, whipped out the camera, snapped it on the tripod, took some shots, put it all back and was back on the road after a 2 minute packing session. It was really fun and liberating. Plus I could also take the rig hiking and be hands free until I needed a shot.
