Just curious if anyone might be able to recommend a good soft shell case for lugging around an assembled SR3.  While I always store my camera disassembled in hard shell cases, I'd like to get a soft shell case which I can use for carrying around my assembled SR3 (including battery, zoom lens, and lens shade) in run and gun situations where I'm filming documentary-style and walking from one location to another with my tripod in tow.

 

I haven't yet measured the dimensions of my camera package fully assembled (I'm guessing maybe around 24" length from battery to sun shade when fully assembled), but I'm curious if anyone might have recommendations for a particular brand or model of camera case that has served them well for this purpose.  I'm guessing I'll need to go with something originally designed for ENG cameras, and that it will probably end up being a PortaBrace, Petrol, or Kata, but any suggestions would be appreciated.

 

Thanks!

I've never carried it around in a soft case, but you're on the right track with an ENG case. I would pull the lens off though and keep that in a good well padded case.
