4.0 out of 5 stars Case Logic DCB-305 Camcorder Case - Basic Features But Functional & Roomy, September 23, 2010
By 
This review is from: Case Logic DCB-305 Compact System/Hybrid/Camcorder Kit Bag (Black) (Electronics)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Case Logic DCB-305 Camcorder Bag is a nice functional case that is much roomier than its compact breathren, like the Case Logic DCB-303 Vertical Flash Camcorder Case or the Case Logic DCB-304 High/Fixed Zoom Camera Case. What it gains in storage capacity it loses slightly in terms of functionality.

As you can see from the photo, this unit includes the standard orange accents and logo typical of Case Logic gear. The slightly larger size makes the DCB-305 a better choice for older or larger hand-held camcorders and cameras, but a few minor features that are missing make the 303 or 304 more attractive for certain situations.

PROS:
++ Good size to fit accessories along with your camera, and also to store your compact camera horizontally
++ High-quality ballistic polyester and nylon fabric exterior is both durable and attractive
++ Larger size and squared bottom makes it easier to stand up
++ Easily accomodates larger handheld camcorders like the Canon VIXIA, Panasonic HDC-TM700K, Sanyo VPC-FH1A, Sony HDR-CX550V and others
++ Also accomodates older compact camcorders or mid-range digital cameras that tend to be on the larger side
++ Nice orange cushion divider allows you to store some large accessories in the main compartment
++ Zippered side pockets are roomy enough for many accessories, including cables, lens caps & more
++ Nice zippered pocket on the top inside flap for memory cards or small batteries
++ Convenient plastic D-ring hooks for a shoulder strap and built in soft handle give you carrying options
++ Functional plastic zippers that don't snag
++ Rubber coated zipper pulls are attractive and functional

CONS:
-- Lacks the sewn-in rear loop that allows the 303 or 304 to be easily looped onto a backpack shoulder strap or belt
-- Shoulder strap is perhaps too skinny, enough so that you may want to consider another
-- For the size, it could use a few extra pockets or flaps on the front or inside
-- Placement of the internal cushion divider makes it difficult to squeeze in a desktop tripod
-- Lacks a smaller thinner accessory divider like the DCB-303
-- May be too big for some very compact camcorders; explore the DCB-303 or DCB-304 for those

CONCLUSION

This bag is roomy and functional, but some design elements are missing compared to the more compact Case Logic bags. The sewn-in rear loop was probably left out because of the size of this bag, but I still could have used it. Along with a few more pockets, this bag would have been ideal for me. It's still great for larger units and I recommend it. Just make sure it suits your camcorder or camera model.

Enjoy.

Thank you for a wonderful video review. I wonder if it will fit Canon SX40 HS. It does look roomier than the DCB-304 bag which has mixed reviews about the fit for Canon SX40.

"++ Easily accomodates larger handheld camcorders like the Canon VIXIA" -- I purchased this case based on this review. Upon receiving the item I tested this out, There is an internal padded wall that can't be adjusted or moved. I own a Canon Vixia camcorder and it would not fit unless you folded the orange padding the opposite direction and then one of the other camera accessories would fit. I returned this case and went for the Canon Deluxe Gadget Bag 100EG.

Any Canon Vixia owners that want an all in one bag, I would suggest looking at the Canon Deluxe Gadget Bag 100EG instead, especially while its on sale. Canon Deluxe Gadget Bag 100EG
