    The LCEX1AME Ameripack Hard Transit Case by Sony is a great case for Sony EX1 owners. We own an EX1 and have been wanting a case that was for easy travel, good fit (for camera and accessories), sturdy, reliable, but most importantly safe for the camera. Since we've had it, traveling has been easier. Also the camera itself fits in very well and easy. Love how it has wheels so you don't have to carry it. Only thing I would complain about would be to add or make the accessory spaces a bit larger for better fitting of the cameras accessories.

    I ordered this case for my new Sony NX5 camera. But it doesn't fit unless it is not completely assembled. It looks like its a good carrying case for the camera that fits in and it is a good protection for the equipment that fits. I got the carrying case in used conditions, and I bought it as new, so I returned it for a refund. Overall is a good carrying case, depending on the camera

    No Reliability and Loose Fitting

    Comments about Sony LCEX1AME Ameripack Hard Transit Case:

    Well, we were concerned at first by the fact that the camera fits very tight against the lid and the foam is not form fitted at all. As a matter of fact, the foam is rather rigid for a Sony case.

    The case does have an area were a wide angle adapter can fit very loosely and flop everywhere without wrapping the adapter lens in a cloth. There is no zippered pouch to carry small items in this case, so its NOT a good solution for a complete traveling camera case.

    Oh... The case has already suffered enough damage (broken corners, no longer waterproof or airtight) by the airlines to warrant replacement but I'm not so sure we want to buy another.

    We are not impressed with this product at all but there's not much to offer for a hard shipping case that you can carry onto a plane.

      Comments about Sony LCEX1AME Ameripack Hard Transit Case:

      Since this case is water proof, dust proof, and shock proof, I will not use another cam bag or case to keep my PMW-EX1R in.
      The LCEX1AME HARD CASE was already pre cut for the PMW and accessories, so all I had to do is unload my old cam bag and load the new LCEX1AME HARD CASE . That took five minutes.
      Very easy to carry or pull with the wheels and long handle.

                  [...] I travel and shoot a lot, and it's the perfect case for my EX-1 and small accessories. Roller wheels are sturdy. Internal cushioning is strong. The extending handle is cool because when locked down it's the only handle on top.

                    This case fits the Sony EX1-R perfectly. It's a very snug fit with plenty of room for lenses, filters, shotgun mic, etc. I checked out at least a dozen options before settling on this case. No other case provided the padding and protection I wanted to keep my precious camera safe. Highly recommended.

                      Sturdy, well-designed, and well-made, the case is exactly as advertised. It is (also as advertised) custom made for the Sony XDCAM EX1. When I eagerly lowered my EX1R into it, the camera did not fit. The Sony XDCAM EX1R is quite a bit wider than its predecessor, the EX1.

                      The case will probably not do when one has to fly to locations. It is just too bulky and heavy.

                      Still, the case is so solid it will probably outlast several generations of cameras.

                      Well-designed, appears very strong and yet comfortable on the road. A bit more storing space wouldn't hurt, but the size is perfect - just under 45".
                      Overall I like it, and I am rather picky when it comes to luggage and to how I transport my gear.

                        Purchased the LCEX1AME for our new Sony PMW-EX1. The fit was perfect.

                        For a smaller hand held case, the foam insert cradles the camera nicely and does not allow for shifting or play in camera movement. The additional slots for the SXS cards, an extra battery and cords is a welcome design feature.

                        The LCEX1AME is approximately the size of 3 standard brief cases and has smooth rolling wheels and a pull out handle. The exterior is tough and looks like it will last for a long time.

                        We have already had the case in the middle of the Arizona desert and it has held up well.

                            Comments about Sony LCEX1AME Ameripack Hard Transit Case:

                            This case is lightweight not bulky.
                            It has plenty of padding and is on wheels
