    At last, a GOOD solid built carry case for my video camera, at a great price. I now take it everywhere I go to do a shoot. I am in the Tropics in Far North Queensland,in Australia and humidity is a big problem. It would be interesting to see how this carry case performs in the heat & humidity. My previous bag (different brand) got mildew problems and rubber parts started to break up and fall away.
    The only thing I can find that is a Slight inconvenience is the double zip opening on the top. One zip has to slide away to the right and then the main zip opening slides away to the left. Not helpful when trying to grab the camera in a hurry. A small negative.
    The carry case has a strong & sturdy feel, and is well padded to protect whatever is inside. I am very happy. Thanks BH Photo. I am your customer from now on.

    I bought this case because I was looking for something to house a Canon XA10, a very compact camera and the description specifically mentioned this model. I could have packed 3 of these in it !!! I put a Panasonic AG-DVX100B in it,sold them both and bought another bag at the local camera store.

        So sad Manfrotto bought Kata. Prices are already going up.

        But so glad I bought this bag when I did! Excellent fit for the Canon XF100!

        Quality bag

        By Steve

        from Orenco Photo Club, Hillsboro, OR

        Comments about Kata CC-191 PL Compact Case (Black):

        I bought this for my Canon XF 100 camcorder. Theres plenty of room for the camcorder with the wide angle lens attached and a mic on top. And room on the side for extra gear (charger, etc). Very well made with pro-grade velcro to assist sealing out moisture and dust. My photo club purchased a larger version for our projector. They are expensive but worth the price if your gear is worth protecting.

          Excellent bag for the Canon XA-20. The handle attachment fits no problem. Room for extra batteries, LED panel and microphone. I also have to Porta-a-brace bags for other options, but this is an affordable bag with nice quality.

            I am very happy that I decided to purchase this bag, I use it for my Canon XA.. It holds everything I need when I'm on the go and has well padded sections to keep everything from knocking into each other. Everything stays secure and readily available when I need it. I would definitely recommend.

                    This is a nice bag... very solid and comfortable. I feel like my gear is well protected and the handles and straps are very comfortable to tote. My only con is that it's a little small for users with a couple of accessories (i.e. wide / teleconverters, etc.) I still make it work, though.

                      I use this case for my Sony HDR AX2000 camera. Its a snug fit. This is a pretty big camera so it takes up the room that you might use for accessories. Its very lightweight and seems durable. Stylish too.

                          The guys out in the field regularly request these bags to replace the old gray/yellow Katas we bought over 10 years ago. These go out into the field every day, all day.

                            Great bag for Canon XA10. Just big enough to accommodate XA10 with Rode NTG-1 mounted. 1 large interior pocket extending the width of the bag and one smaller one at the end for gear. Also exterior zipped pocket (11" X 7"). Holds all my stuff. Very well made.
