I think I bought that bag years ago and ironically I'm using it right now. What I don't care for with most of the bags is that the camera fits in deep in the bottom and the velcro adjustable stuff is meant for the sides, not the top of the camera. With this bag the camera does fit in pretty nicely flush and I laid the protector on top and put in the cords and cables. Could also do it in reverse actually.

I almost ordered the Lowepro Rezo 60. It has the perfect interior size for the HF100, and the pouch in front is perfect for a spare card and a spare battery:

Canon HF 100 - 2.9 x 2.5 x 5.1 in.

Rezo 60 Interior - 3W X 2.8D X 5.5H in.
Rezo 60 Exterior - 3.7W X 4D X 5.9H in.


BUT... I just realized that the hand-strap needs to fit in the bag too, so now I'm not sure if this bag will work.

Anyone here ever try this bag? If so, did the camera fit okay?

If not, any other suggestions for a small bag like this? I want the smallest bag possible.

I still think the best bag would be the Rezo 60 -- that is IF the camera will fit (my concern is that the strap may not fit).

I'll have my HF100 tomorrow... hopefully I'll be able to find a Rezo 60 in person to see how it fits.

What do you guys think of this bag for the HF100?

It's the Lowepro Apex 100 AW:

Canon HF - 2.9 X 2.5 x 5.1
Apex 100 - 3.7 X 3.0 X 5.1 interior (5.1W X 4.5D X 6.3H exterior)

The size looks just right, doesn't it?

But what if we only want to hold the camera?

Now that I think about it, my version of everything you need might be different from someone elses. For me it holds the camera, power cord and a handheld tripod in the main compartment (camera protected by the padded separator), memory card reader and remote in the netted zipper compartment on top, brick power supply in the big pocket, 819 battery in the side pocket and extra SD memory in the other side pocket.

If you have extra lenses or an external mic, these probably won't fit in this bag. I'm probably going to pick up the standalone battery charger which will save a little room also.

Ebay #130107617170. I said it before but will say again one more time. If you want to fit the camera only, this is the closest thing I found (and bought). There is room for the remote control and extra card, card reader... Some room in the main pocket but not sure what I can use it for. We went to CC and BB looking at various Lowepro and others but they were all too big and/or clunky to us. After I bough this, my wife saw some other bags in Ross and she swore that those would be best of all.

[Edit] Typo, and a bit of clarification.

Any chance you have a picture of this bag with the HF100 in it?

Comm CZ - The TLZ5 looks very attractive to me.

A question for you:-

Is there room to have either the BP-809 or BP-819 connected to the camera and a spare in the main compartment?

Not sure if "Camera Alone" picture is with battery attached or not.

Essential I want to carry around two batteries (one spare, one attached) and a couple of 16GB SHDC cards, which should fit in the pocket.

I want something that "just fits" and not something with additional bulk I don't need and the TLZ 5 may be exactly what I'm after.......

"Camera alone" picture is with BP-809 attached (but there is no difference in camera lenght with or without BP-809!). I'll post more pictures with BP-819 attached and BP-809 in the main compartment later.

IMHO this bag is great. It looks good (my wife loves it) and camera survived 2m (80 inches? ) fall

Looks good, tuquet. Thanks for the pics!

I'm still curious to see the Rezo 60. Based on the numbers, it looks just about perfect:

---------------------
Canon HF - 2.9 X 2.5 X 5.1
Bag Name - Interior Dimensions (Exterior Dimensions)
Rezo 60 - 3.0 X 2.8 X 5.5 (3.7W X 4.0D X 5.9H)
Apex 100 - 3.7 X 3.0 X 5.1 (5.1W X 4.5D X 6.3H)
Cirrus TLZ5 3.7 X 3.5 X 4.5 (4.5W X 4.5D X 6.7H)
Edit 100 - 4.1 X 2.8 X 4.9 (4.1W X 2.8D X 4.9H)
Edit 110 - 6.3 X 3.3 X 4.3 (7.5W X 4.7D X 5.7H)
---------------------

Just got my Lowepro Rezo 60 today. It fits perfectly and is another good option. Compared to the Edit 100, it is notably smaller but also less protective. The sides are only a single layer of neoprene. It also lacks the carry handle on top, and has fewer storage pockets. If you want very good protection while still having a fairly small case, the Edit 100 or TLZ 5 are the better choice. If you want a smaller case and are ok with moderate protection, then the Rezo 60 is a great choice. See attached photos.

The 2nd photo shows that there is a little extra height, so an extended battery or small lens attachment should fit ok.

The 3rd photo shows side-by-side with the Edit 100.

Update: The front pocket could easily fit two BP-809 batteries, or at least one BP-819. I don't have a BC-800 charger to try, but it probably won't fit. I found some specs that say it is 3.5x2.3x1. I have another charger that is about 3x2x1, and it BARELY fits.

Wow, fantastic comparison pics all around!

Coincidentally, I just returned from BestBuy and CircuitCity. Neither place had the Rezo 60, unfortunately, but I bought the Edit 100 from BB and a Tamrac T92 from CC. The T92 is pretty similar to the Rezo 60.

Originally I wanted the smallest bag I could get, period. But to be honest, the Edit 100 is not that much bigger, yet it adds more protection, a carry handle, and extra storage pockets -- which could come in handy for a spare battery, charger, SD cards, cables, etc). Not bad... not bad at all.

P.S. -- after playing with both bags, I'll most likely return the Tamrac T92. Nice little bag, but the Edit 100 is close enough in size that it doesn't make sense to keep them both.

I'm still curious about the Rezo 60... but I wonder if I'd feel the exact same way about it as the Tamrac.

Rezo 60 is pretty small too. I was going to test it, but only Rezo 40 has arrived

If you want so tiny bag, Canon DCC-90 is the way to go...

Hey guys, my spare battery (BP809) and spare battery charger (CG800) just arrived from Newegg...

The battery charger does NOT fit in the little Tamrac, so I'm guessing it won't fit in the Rezo 60 either. But it DOES fit in the front pouch of the Edit 100!

I'm keeping the Edit 100, but I just returned the Tamrac bag and ordered the Rezo 60.

I'll use the Rezo 60 when I want to take just the HF100 and nothing else, and I'll use the Edit 100 when I want to include a spare battery, charger, cables, etc.

For a grand total of $38.69 for both bags, I figure it's worth having them both.

Don't buy the Canon SC-A40. Although specs say it's "compatible" w/the HF100, it isn't.
