Any idea on what is the best storage options on the camcorders - there seems to be a ton of options and I am slightly confused - Can someone give me a quick outline on the important options and what sort of usage goes with each.

Well it really depends on how much equipment you are storing and how often you haul it around.

For quite a while I have use a Lowepro back pack to tote around and store my Rebel, my Oly Point n Shoot and my older Panasonic GV320 camcorder.

With that I also had all the AV, power and charging bits, extra lens, a few mini mounts ( tripods, Suction mounts ) and MiniDV tapes. It was a tightly packed pile and did well for me. I recently picked up another camera and once I started adding its bits to the bag, it was clear that I had out grown it.

So I picked up a knock off Pelican 1510 Case. I had a scare a few months ago with my full bag tumbling down some stairs ( no damage to the cameras ) so I went the hard case route this go around. The 1510 is FAA approved for carry on ( Bonus ), water tight, well padded ( depending on how you cut the pluck n pick foam ) and very rugged with a life time warranty. Down side is the 1510 new is $170-$210 for a case a bit bigger than a back pack.

I have only got the cameras in this atm, I am waiting on the lid organizer ( zippered pocket etc ) to get the cables sorted, and see how I will end up doing the batteries and the charging devices. To give you an idea I have 3 batteries for the Rebel with 2 chargers, 4 big batteries for the GV320 with 2 chargers, Oly Charger, The V700 Charger and 3 batteries, I also have macro and tele lens, and a few other bits that I know I will get everything into the 1510, its just going to take a bit of time to get it laid out in the most efficient manor. I don't fly a lot but I travel a lot with my gear and I like the bit of added protection the rolling hard case gives me. Just an FYI I would also suggest looking at the 1650 if you need a bit more room than the 1510 gives you.

Hope this gives you some ideas
