Oh and im also looking for a strap, i see 3 kind on canon store: SS-600, SS-650, both are shoulder strap (dont know if there any difference between them except color) and a neck strap the NS-10 (is there suppose to be a difference between a neck and a shoulder strap?). I suppose looking at how they are made that i could use a slr strap also isnt?
Initially I preferred a case that allowed the camera to lay horizontal in its case and I'm not sure if that case would allow that. Initially I purchased a Lowepro Rezo 110 AW
case I was very happy with it: http://www.amazon.com/Lowepro-Rezo-1.../dp/B000AQF4JG
It is just barely big enough to hold the following items comfortably:
-BP-819 spare batter
-Hoya Cir-Polarizing filter in case
-6' HDMI cable (pencil diameter)
-8" Mini-HDMI to HDMI adapter
-Camera remote control
-Power block (fits on outside side pocket-slightly exposed)
-Sandisk Memory Card Reader
The case has a nice horizontal divider that allows you to put the battery, filter, cables and such on the bottom of the case and then the divider on top of that with the camera going on top of the divider. The case also has a built in lens cleaning cloth and an all-weather cover that stows in a velcro pocket to protect it from rain, etc. If I try really hard I can also squeeze in the component video cable and the composite/audio cable on top of the camera but I don't like squeezing everything in so tight.That said
, I also just purchased the Canon charger and was tired of having to keep removing the velcro pad the camera was sitting on to get to the cables underneath, so I just steped up to the Lowepro REZO 140 AW
for more room. This configuration allows me to car all of the above items along with the charger and eventually perhaps another lens or two as well. The biggest advantage to the 140 over the 110 (or the just slightly taller REZO 120 AW) is the ability to subdivide the case into three vertical sections and only take out what I need instead of a full unpack and pack everytime like with the 110. There is also a side pocket on one side of the case, so still have a little room to grow outside the case as well. If you aren't needing to bring the big block power adapter and a standard size HDMI cable (not the skinny wire canon variety) around everywhere and/or the any of the other components then the smaller 110 case is probably sufficient. If you're like me and want to have everything together and have many additional lenses (Wide Angle, Tele-Photo, etc) then I highly recommend the REZO 140.
The REZO 110/120/140 AW cases should fit in most backpacks just fine. I keep mine in a Targus backpack with my laptop just fine. I also tried out the Lowepro Apex 120 AW case, which is narrow and taller, but much preferred the REZO 140 AW instead. I've attached a few images of how the REZO 140 looks loaded up along with all of the items stuffed inside. If anyone wants pics of the Apex 120 loaded up let me know and I'll post them. Good luck!
