This time regarding cases for the hvx 200.

I blindly bought the Thermodyne/Panasonic system hard case. I am returning it. I really don't like how I have to smash the camera into place.... I think this is a seriously bad design and I would eventually accidentally destroy the camera while closing the case..... for $350.

Beyond that case, I don't really see anything on the market that is "Made for the HVX-200". I previously owned a Canon XL2 and I am accustomed to finding "Made for xxxx" third party solutions.

Does anyone have experience with a third-party case that will allow a "normal" amount of extra gear to be carried?

(Normal = light, batteries, matte box, P2 cards, AC power, mic, etc).

These two will work well together:

An Amazing case, but as usual, zacuto is pretty proud of their prices.

Perhaps Pelican cases could be your choice; effective, hard case, cheap, secure, waterproof. I use it 2 of them everyday, one ( a little one) for Hard drive and P2; the other for the camera and accessories. check the link
