      Use it to carry a Sony NEX fs100. Very impressed with the build quality for the money. Easy to open and close. Comfortable to carry. Good for storing the basics: camera + batteries + minor accessories. If you're looking for something to carry lenses, wireless lavs or more, you'll need a bigger bag.

          no complaints at all about this case, I'd give it 5 stars, but have to see how it wears and lasts first.It's well padded, has a strap to hold the camera in place. The photo on the web site doesn't show the shoulder strap, but it's well made wide enough to be comfortable too.It works well for event videography, with room for mics, and maybe one extra lens.

                Comments about Kata CC-192 PL Compact Case (Black):

                I had purchased a Kata bag for my 5D MKIII a few months back (and while the design was not all that I was hoping for, the contruction was excellent), so when I saw that this bag was featured at a good price on B&H's weekly email blast, I jumped on it. As I expected, this bag is well made. It has plenty of room for my Canon XA20 (I checked the reviews and saw another person bought it for their XA20 and liked it). There is plenty of space for audio and various accoutrement that goes with video production. If need be, I can also stick my 5D MKIII in as well. I was just in the market for a bag for the XA20 and B&H had a good deal, I am happy.

                      Comments about Kata CC-192 PL Compact Case (Black):

                      Why do I get so caught up on cases and bags? It's a weird fetish I have. Well, this is currently my very favorite bag/case for gear (or anything).

                      There's something so great about the design of this series. It looks very sleek/professional and I LOVE the handles on the top and at the two ends. They're perfectly placed, are the perfect size for hand's grip, super soft to hold, and seem to be wired to the bag in a way that makes the experience very sturdy/trustworthy when grabbing them quickly and carrying them.

                      I made this my bag of sound gear, but obviously it works well for camera gear too. The quick-to-open top with zippers down both sides is another well thought out design feature. All this and it feels like your gear is really well protected. Don't get me wrong, I love my Pelicans, but this type of soft bag seems like it provides a ton of protection without the bulk/awkwardness of hard cases. This is maybe the world's greatest carry on.

                        Excellent bag for your video camcorder. It is a good everything bag for the Canon XA 20 sized camera, but too big if you like a scaled down option. In that case the CC-191 is a better option.

                              The XA25 product page suggests the CC-191, but I like the 192 a little better. Offers more space without a massive price jump. When you first put the camera in, it seems like you have all the space in the world, but start adding cables...power supplies...headphones...LANC controller...manual...a mic or two... things start to add up, and you'll be glad you spent that little bit extra to get that bit of extra space. Trust me on that one.

                                  Comments about Kata CC-192 PL Compact Case (Black):

                                  The Kata is everything I'd hoped. It is light and easy to carry. It's narrow so it doesn't bang into my side or require that I awkwardly carry it with my arm out. The inside is brightly colored so it's easy to spot things. When I open the top everything I need is right there for quick set-up and deployment. It's plenty big enough for a Cannon XF100, wide angle lens, shotgun, and extra goodies but not too bulky.

                                    Nothing to say really, bag is great, sturdy and feels strong. I bought it for my Sony FS-100 and it fits perfectly with 3 additional lenses and all the accessories.
