    Porta Brace CS-DV3U reviews

    CS-DV3U Mini-DV Camera Case (Signature Blue with Black String) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 61.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bag! I use this bag with my Panasonic DVX100B and all of my gear. You wouldn't expect anything less than perfect construction from Porta-Brace and this delivers. My gear (which includes a shotgun mic, a wireless lav set, various XLR cables, batteries, extra MiniDV tapes, battery charger, etc.) fits comfortably in the pockets and pouches. The bag is compact and lightweight, but sturdy and I feel like I have everything at my fingertips. The shoulder strap is thick and comfortable for those days where you are lugging everything around for hours. As a documentary filmmaker, a good, unobtrusive bag is a great thing. I'm never fumbling around and taking the attention off my subjects.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product Very nice bag, plenty of protection for the camera and nicely laid out for accessories. The strap is comfortable with a loaded bag; and that can't be overstated. The no slip bottom surface is great and I'm able to carry 3 batteries (2 oversized) the Charger/AC Power Supply, all of the cables needed, spare tapes and it has a nice outside flat pocket for CF cards and such. It comes with a zipper pillow bag that I keep the MRC & Remote in and acts as an additional bumper in the bag for the camera that is great. We use it for a Sony HVR-Z5U and the customizable bumpers inside make for a nice, snug fit. I only hold back the 5th Star as it is not custom fit for my specific camera, I'd really go 4.5 Stars.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Case for Smaller Requirements I have to admit I was a bit disappointed at the small size of this case when I received it, but that's one of the drawbacks to buying online - not being able to see and touch before buying. Be forewarned that this is definitely a case for MINI-DV cams, mini being the operative word here. That said, you can't go wrong with Porta Brace. Highest quality & construction you can get in a bag. Maybe the mini aspect was a blessing in disguise as I might now be able to bring my Sony Z7U on my next trip. The Z7U fits, but it's snug. All that said, you won't be fitting a Sony HXR-MC2000 in this bag, that's for sure. None the less, this bag is a solid choice!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Air Travel Bag It's big enough to fit my Sony HXR-NX5U Camcorder, shotgun mic, two wireless lavs and cables, cam battery, ac adapter/charger, and headset in the main compartment easily, and small enough to fit it all snugly. It's padded on the inside, and the camera doesn't move around at all. Side pockets have enough room for other accessories. I've taken this one the plane a few times already with my laptop backpack, and it fits in the compartment above easily. The strap is heavy duty, and its comfortable on my shoulder for the length of an air terminal or from hotel lobby to guest room. I haven't been outside with it yet, so I don't know how it does with weather, but it looks and feels durable enough to get wet. I love this bag, I think I made a good choice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag, great price I just got back from my first trip with this bag and I am very pleased. I carried a Sony NX5U, wireless mics as well as a few cables and there was no problem fitting everything in. The bag stows easily in the overhead bin on a 737 (I would expect it would fit easily in to just about any bin) and the shoulder strap is very comfortable (wide and covered with suede). The bag's construction seems very solid and the all-metal hardware looks quite durable. I am very pleased that I was able to get this US-made bag at such a great price. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from There is no other camera bag. The difference between a Porta Brace camera bag and any other brand's camera bag is the difference between an M1-Abrams Tank and a Ford Pinto. I still shoot professionally and personally with my trusty Sony DCR-VX2100 (with Rode video mic). Add in the multiple batteries-- including my 9 hour brick--all the cables, a couple cases of miniDV tapes (for those who still use tape) and you've still got PLENTY of room to spare for all manner of additional equipment (or a quick change of clothes, for that matter, for those grueling summer outdoor shoots). If you're looking for the most durable all-terrain protection for your gear bar none, you've found it. And no, I don't work for Porta Brace, but I would if they offered.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful case - well made I use this with the AX2000 video camera. We bought 4 cases for our students and they worked so well, I bought one for myself. Plenty of room for most video stuff for the normal shoot. Best thing for me is the top access for the camera. Some cases you have to set down on a table and open the side, where this one cradles the camera in the middle of the case, so it won't get dumped out when you open the case. Our students like them, too. It looks professional (because it is) and it protects the gear well. I good choice for the AX 2000 or similar camera. Yes, we bought all 5 cases (university's and my personal one) from B&H. I have NOT been compensated for my comments. It is just plain a great case for this purpose.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for. Sturdy and roomy enough for my new Panasonic AG-UX90 camera and all of the accessories.
