The black CC-195 PL Compact Case from KATA delivers a dynamic solution to storing and/or transporting your camcorder gear. It's designed to hold the Canon XL or JVC HD Series or an HDSLR rigged with video accessories. It's a lightweight bag designed to hold your rig in safety while on location. Made from tough rip stop nylon, the bag is accented with KATA's unique Toblerone system that guards the bottom of the bag from bumps, tears and abrasions when placed on the ground. It also elevates the bag protecting it from ground moisture. The aluminum skeleton provides ultra light protection and helps with weight distribution.

The main compartment is opened via dual top zippers that quickly expose the central compartment for rapid access to your rig. Movable internal padded dividers provide you with a way to separate your accessories from the main rig thereby protecting the camcorder from scratches. There's also a large external pocket for storing additional accessories. The interior is made with KATA's Aeriform Foam - a lightweight, perforated and laminated material that is reinforced with EVA (ethyl vinyl acetate) and EPE (polyethylene) material.

The bag is carried by its adjustable shoulder strap or one of three carry handles on the top and sides. If desired, you can update the included shoulder strap to KATA's GSS (KT VG-604DH). For additional portability, the bag will accept KATA's optional Insertrolley that will enable you to place one or more bags on its wheels. The Trolley easily slides through the built-in rear sleeve of the bag.

This bag also accepts KATA'S optional Modi-vers system, by which you can custom cut dividers to configure your bag to suit your individual shooting needs. The dividers are yellow that make it easy to locate small accessories in low light.

Backed by its five-year warranty (extendable to lifetime when the bag is registered with KATA), this bag offers you a host of features for both pro and amateur alike.

Toblerone
Located on the bottom and dangerous spots of the bag, the Toblerones will protect your case from bumps, tears and sudden shock by absorbing any accidental impact. Additionally, the Toblerone can elevate the bag above standing water or wet spots, keeping your case dry
Insertrolley Compatible
This bag is compatible with the KATA Insertrolley (KT VG-DTS, sold separately) - a simple yet ingenious system that allows you to carry the case, or even several cases at once, on a trolley. Simply slide the trolley through the integrated sleeve on any of KATA's compatible cases for secure and easy mobility. Even for larger cases - Kata's extendable wheel system helps to better stabilization. You can detach the trolley when you want to store it, or for maintenance
Modi-Vers Compatible
This bag is customizable through the use of the Modi-vers divider system (KT VG-MDK, sold separately). This allows you to fully customize your bag to protect and fit your gear. You can cut custom dividers to fit whatever size you need to keep your equipment snug. The yellow material makes it easy to find even the smallest components and accessories
Aluminum Skeleton
Inspired by the human skeleton, KATA uses formed aluminum alloy staves or frames for ultra light structural protection and smart weight distribution
Aeriform Foam
For unique combination of light weight and protective material, KATA developed the Aeriform Foam. It's a perforated, laminated and reinforced foam of EVA (ethyl vinyl acetate) and EPE (polyethylene) materials. The result is super-light foam that keep your gear protected

          I use this case to carry my Canon AG-AC8 Shoulder Mount Camera and accessories. The camera fits snugly into the case and the interior pockets snd compartments come in handy.

          The case is sturdy and well made, however the outside zippered pockets are a bit tight, so you won't be able to put anything very think into them.

          That being said I'm pleased with my purchase.

            Comments about Kata CC-195 PL Compact Case (Black):

            I got used to this style of bag while studying television in college and since then I have always loved them.

            I bought this bag to carry my Sony PMW-200 and additional accessories as it seemed like the best size and value for what I needed. I feel safest putting my camera into these bags as they are designed well and have great padding that I know will keep it protected.

            It has a large front pocket with two smaller pockets inside (no zippers on the smaller pockets, they are just open slots). The inside has a thin section seperated off along the side of the bag. The large interior is the perfect size for my camcorder and various batteries/microphone accessories. It comes with two extra pieces that attach to the interior with velcro and can be manipulated to create different little sections within the bag. The inside also has an adjustable strap with a buckle that can be used to secure your camera to the bottom of the bag.

            The shoulder strap is adjustable and has a nice rubber grip to keep it from sliding around too much. The shoulder strap can also be taken off of the bag as it simply clips onto the little rings on either side.

            It feels like the zipper on the front pouch might break one day, as well as the clips and hooks that keep the shoulder strap attached to the bag, but I really don't mind that considering how great the bag itself is. In my opinion, these bags are the best, so if the day comes when a few hooks and zippers break, I can probably just buy sturdier ones at a hardware store and then the bag will be perfect.

            Almost perfect (but not quite)

            Comments about Kata CC-195 PL Compact Case (Black):

            Recently received the bag and I have used it only for about one week.

            The good:
            + Light weight and very good protection.
            + Pretty easy to zip and to get the camera in and out.

            The bad:
            - Zipper feels pretty good, but I am slightly concerned about breakage in the future. It feels like it is a 5 year zipper, but not a 10 year zipper...
            - The compartments are not entirely flexible and don't stay in place perfectly. I would have liked a little more flexability here rather than just the two dividers that it came with. It would have also been nice to have more pockets I think (only one on the side besides the main pocket).
            - I dislike the velcro opening (combined with the zippers on the main pocket). I like to be able to open my equipment without everyone in the church having to stare at me. Velcro creates noise and wears out.

            Overall a handy bag. I would buy it again. I like Kata bags - they definately have some good designs, I just wish that they could fix a few of the details.

                This bag neatly fits my Panasonic AG-AC8PJ, which is a large shoulder-mount camcorder. I also have plenty of room for accessories.

                I love how lightweight and portable the bag is. It makes the load in/out so much easier.

                    I really like this Kata bag. It has a high build quality and is a perfect size for my Canon XF300. There is also room for my microphones, extra batteries, XLR cable, and foldable over the ear headphones. After all that gear, the bag still seems lightweight.

                    The onlt thing I found disappointing was that the interior height dimensions only represent the center of the bag. It is a little bit lower at the ends. This just means that if I leave a shotgun mic holder on the camera, I need to center it in the bag.

                        This case is a new design from the old CC-195, but they managed to maintain the ruggedness and make it lighter. I am very happy with this. Plenty of room for my Sony NEX EA50 and all the accessories. I miss the old Trolley Insert strap that allowed this to sit upright on rolling luggage. It now sits on its end and I assume this was to allow this large bag to maintain a more narrow width when put on smaller pieces of luggage.

                                Fits Sony EX-3 very well... viewfinder is enclosed in case, unlike some other EX-3 cases. Good protection for local shoots, but not intended for airline abuse. The case comes with some dividers, but I also ordered the "MVKS-20 Modi-Vers Kit Divider Kit". I was able to create two compartments in front of the lens and two compartments in each rear corner. The case is a comfortable size, and has lots of room for accessories. The only thing I am concerned about is the top dual zippers... might have issues at the "hinge" point when open. I intend to minimize stress in this area when open. All in all, very pleased with case.
