    Works great to tote camera and merlin together without having to detach the camera. Not having to reconfigure the merlin every time you separate them allows you to take quick shots on the fly. Especially great for those who don't control the action. Bag is flawed as an all in one solution foor travel. Creators did not consider too many accessory items in the design so I find I have to carry yet another bag. It's good to know my camera is safe and good to shoot in a matter of seconds when needed.

    This travel case allows you to transport your Merlin without removing the weights and folding it up as you would have to using the original shipping case the product comes with. This will keep you from having to reassemble and disassemble the product before and after every use. If you camera is small enough, you can even keep the camera mounted to the Merlin while temporarily storing it in this case; for instance, when moving from location to location.

    However, the case is simply not built well-enough to consider road worthy. There is very little rigidity around the outside of the case so you'd never want to set anything on top of it or even lean anything up against it. This case would be so much more usable if it were more sturdy.

    On the plus side, it has a well-designed interior, has plenty of room in the main compartment for extra lightweight supplies and has great pockets for the user manual, production notebooks or spare parts.

    If the manufacturer would upgrade this product to make it more of a road case, they'd have a definite winner.

        I bought this to carry my Dynalites. Works a treat. Can fit a pack and 2 or 3 heads with cables, grids and gels go in the side pocket. Not for shipping but for around town.

              I was not expecting an extra bag to come with the Steadicam merlin 2 upon purchase . But this bag comes with the Steadicam Merlin 2 if you buy it from B&H. I was pleasantly surprised to find this as an additional item. Keep in mind the Steadicam Merlin 2 has its own compact bag that its comes with inside the retail packaging but B&H gives you a second bag for free . The bag is good quality and convenient for bringing everything you need to shoot; it looks nice as well.

                When I first received the case I was not clear on the value or reason B&H added it as part of the kit. After spending a fair amount of time getting the SteadiCam setup I now see the value. The case allows for a fully adjusted Stedicam with camera to be transports without causing you to have to break down the setup and spend time trying to get everything balanced.

                    This case is fully padded to protect the SteadiCam from harm. No worries with this case in the back trunk of the car. Worth it for peace of mind especially since it keeps the Steadicam from getting jarred and off balance.

                      Large case for a small camcorder or DSLR, but handy in that it allows you to keep it attached to the Merlin.

                        This bag is huge! It has molded foam for the Merlin folded up, and has enough space to stack a camera bag on top. There is a divider on the inside that is great for a laptop. The zipper pouch on the front outside is large and holds everything else.
                        Getting this bag saved me from having to buy a whole new camera bag to fit everything else. Overall, very great!

                        The only thing I wish it had was a cover that would go over the steadicam for some extra protection.

                          If we keep the Merlin, we'll use this bag to take to production shoots or some live applications to transport a camera attached to the Merlin already. It's not built for airplanes so we'll leave it at home and use our other cases for flights. It is bigger than I expected.[...]. So why wouldn't it be a five star?

                              I actually don't use this for my Merlin. The Merlin already comes in a compact sweet little case.
                              I did not have a proper camera bag and had my essential gear all spread out in different cases.
                              I am able to fit my camera lens attached, another 50mm lens (ordered from B&H and awesome), and Zoom H4N (also from B&H and awesome), a 580exii (B&H) with lightstand attachment, my triggers/receivers and cords, my gels, and still have room. Great case.

                                    Its a case, it works. One perk though is that it will hold the Merlin (folded up) with a camera still mounted. Almost too much room if you have a small camera it might not be a good idea to use. But hey its free with a Merlin which also comes with a case.

                                              Fit Lerlin and a camcorder well, but a bit too big

                                                Merlin gives you this big bag in addition to the great small case that the Merlin comes in. I put my compact Merlin in the same bag as my camera, so I don't need this big bag. I plan to give it to a friend.

                                                  Very nice case included with our Merlin. Not sure would have spent much to buy it separately, but it's great to be able to leave the Merlin attached to the camcorder, so we may never use the form-fitting Merlin case. Lots of room for accessories, too.
