Porta brace makes nice cases. This is a good case only it was shipped with a small part missing. Basically a Velcro strap which holds the camera in place. I have replaced it with some Velcro I bought, but would appreciate if B&H could send out a new part. I already sent them an email.

Very good bags! Exectly what i need!

Great case for Sony FS7

I was looking for a carry-on case for the Sony FS7. Even though this does not show that the camera will fit, I had an almost identical Portabrace case that I tried first to see. Works great and I know it can go on-board in cabin. Need to remove arm and viewfinder. Plenty of room to leave mounted in case on Zacuto VCT universal plate, base plate, batteries, charger, a lens or 2, mike, etc. Just what I needed at a good price.

Excellent case with plenty of room and protection

I recently purchased this black CS-DV4 case after being very pleased with the blue CS-DV4 case I've owned for the past 20 months.� Now I have identical bags (but in different colors) for my Sony HXR-NX3 and Sony HXR-NX100 camcorders.� The workmanship on these bags is excellent (no loose threads anywhere, quality zippers) with thick padded protection along the sides, top, and bottom.� While this case is definitely larger than my camera sizes that extra space in the main compartment is put to use for on-camera lights, shotgun mics with windscreens, extra batteries, and more (one time including a GoPro camera with mounts as well).� I've filled in some main compartment side gaps with Porta Brace's zippered padded pillow pouches for other small items.� I especially like the large padded suede shoulder pad on the carry strap--unlike other camera bags this comfortable oversized suede pad conforms perfectly to my shoulders and doesn't slip off.�� There's only one small negative aspect I've experienced with these cases--they aren't "rapid open and remove."� You really do need to use both hands to fully open the bag, with one hand to widen the top zippered edges while using your other hand to remove the camera especially if you leave lights and mics attached.� But I'm now OK with that given how much stuff I pack inside, the wonderful suede shoulder pad, and the protection this case provides.

Great independent filmmaker type travel bag, decent price

I wanted something to travel abroad with that wasn't huge but would fit all the gear I don't dare to check, i.e. camera body, a few lenses, microphones, recorder, ..., would fit on board a plane but would also protect my stuff if I got forced to gate check the bag. This bag does the job. It doesn't attract much attention because it's just a dull-looking, black bag, but it has a lot of protection, and it fits a lot of gear.

question

Can this be a carry on bag for an airplane?
Asked by: Osama M.
Yes it fits in the overhead compartment in most airlines. The only one it won't fit is some of the regional flights with the smaller jets. Those compartments hardly fit anything! Hope this helps.

question

Would this be able to take Canon XF200 with gun mic attached, plus a 15 Macbook Pro, AND be carry-on for flights? (Yes I de-mount mics and batts for transit, but want the one working bag...) Thanks
Asked by: Susi A.
You can actually fit (quite snugly) a 15 Macbook Pro laptop in the side pocket, it just takes a bit of finesse. I regularly travel with a 13 Macbook Pro and a Panasonic AC-160 camera around the US. It won't fit under your seat because it is too long. You have to cram it in the overhead bin if your in a smaller domestic plane, but I've never had to check my bag.There are also two rigid foam slats that hold the bag upright. In a pinch I was able to take these out and fit 2 AC-160s back to back in the main compartment. But I couldn't fit a laptop in them at the same time. But to answer your question, I am right now able to test with my work 15 Macbook Pro and it will fit in the side. I used to use a generic bag that would actually fit under my seat, but it wasn't protecting my camera as much. I like this new bag and it is very sturdy, and it doesn't hurt my shoulder when carrying long distances like my old bag did.Best,Lane Wyrick

question

Can it hold a laptop?
Asked by: Hunter M.
Yes, the main section is just one large, really large, open area.The two sides both provide enough room for a laptop to travel along.
