5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Cannon HF, May 27, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Canon Soft Carrying Case SC-A80 for all Canon Consumer Camcorders (Electronics)
I just received this so I have not yet tried to pack all of my components into it but I wanted to post some initial comments to help others that might have been as frustrated as I. First, the dimensions. Outside measurements are about 9.5 inches long (across), 3.5 inches wide (front to back), and 6 inches high (tall). The tag says the inside dimensions are 8 inches across, 3 inches wide, and 5 inches high. It's small but it looks like it will be perfect for my new Canon HF M300.

There is no leather. The tag says it has rubberized nylon that's urethane coated.

The front pocket has a zipper and inside there are two pockets that look fine for a couple SD cards. The main compartment opens with two zippers. The zipper pulls are connected together so you tug on the connector and both zippers open/close at the same time. This enables you to open the 2.5 inch flap that runs the length of the case, which is also well secured with velco on one end. Inside the main compartment is a divider that runs from front to back, also secured with velco so you have some flexibility to move it left to right or to remove it entirely.

As you can see from the photo, it comes with a shoulder strap and handles for carrying.

If I have any issues or discover that it won't hold my HF and other components, I'll post an update. Otherwsie, assume I'm content with this seemingly perfect case for my needs.

Thank you for posting the dimensions. It amazes me the Canon do not publish this information with this product on their site, and therefore it is not published on any reseller sites either.

Do you think it will take a spare (827) battery and external charger, along with the other wires and things that came with your camera? I have the same camera, and trying to find the ideal bag. Everything I've seen so far is either too big or too small.

Also, based on the measurements you have given, am I correct in thinking that it will take your HF M300 positioned upright, as opposed to having to lay it lengthways along the bag?

Jon,

The 827 battery is a bit big but it will fit. I was sent to this listing after buying my HF20 on ebay at the Adorama camera ebay store in NY. He recommended a separate charger and battery on their website. Adorama.com. I got the vivitar charger and replacement 827 vivitar battery found here and saved a bunch of money. http://www.adorama.com/VVCHNB4L.html
