    Question Cases / Bags for Lumix FZ-20

    Having now received my pride and joy

    It is in need of a safe comfortable, but not too big home! Any suggestions? It is really hard to try and picture it based on simple dimentions. And with some many of you all having got the FZ-20 or FZ-10 I thought first hand advice would be better

    I am looking to house the camera, couple of SD cards, couple of batteries, couple of filters and a Pemaraal PA62 adaptor & Hama 62mm Lens Hood - which I hope to be able to leave on

    Thanks

    Hi,

    try the Lowepro range, especially the TLZ1, TLZ10 and even the TLZ20. They all look good quality and weather proof.

    Im thinking of going for the TLZ20 myself.

    Thanks Cookie Monster & Jayde

    I like the interior of the Velocity but I don't know about having it like a backpack.

    Really looking to try and get one which attaches to a belt so I han have everything placed infront of me.

    Not too keen on a full size type bag as these are normally carried on your shoulder and present a security risk and I don't like to give the would be theif an easy target

    Please feel free to make any comments At the end of the day there are a lot of FZ10's, FZ15's and FZ20's out there, and everyone will have their own preference for housing their pride and joy!

    It is just a pity that Panasonic hadn't thought of this as well

    Have now got a number of candidate that should all fit the FZ20 with room for tele lens, flash and accessories.

    Tamrac 5201 Explorer 1
    Tamrac 5211 Mini Explorer
    Tamrac 5745 Velocity 5 - shoulder fit with waist fitting

    CCS Gladstone Micro
    CCS Hippo

    All these are not too big and can be used over the shoulder or around your waist.

    I have been looking at the Samsonite Trekking Models the 110 looks like a snug Fit for the camera, while the 130 and above would leave plenty of space for accessories (Although I do not have the camera yet just going by the dimensions). Try 7dayshop they have some good offers on these bags at the moment.

    But they have a nice samsonite Badge on the front and the quality looks OK from the pictures and the prices are good.

    Don't get me wrong. There is nothing wrong with them at all. I was simply letting you know where to find full details and rrp of them as it is hard to find them. 7Dayshop.com has some very very keen prices on a number of things, only some ranges are very limited but if you can find exactly what you are looking for then a true bargain can be had

    Thanks for the extra info, was looking at getting an FZ20 this weekend, but need extra battery bag and 512SD card , can do all 3 for 55 inc postage at 7day helps stretch the budget a little, have used them a lot in the past for SLR kit before I converted to the dark side.
