Padded travel bag for Zen DP100?

Recommended Posts

Since today I am a proud owner of a Zen DP100-N120 minidome.

I like to store (and transport in the check-in lugagge) my domeports in padded travel bags, as e.g. this one (for the Nauticam 140 dome): https://www.nauticam.com/collections/accessories-for-ports/products/padded-travel-bag-for-n120-140mm-optical-glass-wide-angle-port

Does someone know whether anything similar is available for the Zen DP100 minidome?

 

Thank you for information, Wolfgang

This maybe, Wolfgang?

I've got the Grouper case and it’s excellent 

The Cinebag looks good. I will probably order one.

 

The dimensions of the Cinebag are 6*6*4 (inches), while the bag for the Nauticam 140 dome (linked above) is, according to my measurement, 7.5*7.5*5.5. I assume the 6*6*4 is the smallest possible to store the DP100, or is there anything smaller (but stille sturdy and well protecting the domeport during transport) available?

I don't know Wolfgang. I just had a quick look on the Cinebags website as I thought they had a suitable bag and I am very happy with mine: a quality product. (at a price!)

I often use a plastic food container for my dome ports. They are available in many sizes and provide more rigid protection than a padded bag. And are a lot cheaper. Just add some microfiber towels that you might use to dry your camera on the trip as padding.

Great advice here, the idea with the tupperware is very nice...

I also asked at Zen and Phil Burghard wrote me that the Cinebag CB73 fisheye  bag is just designes for the Zen DP100, so I will order one. I will write later how it compares to the Nauticam travel bag...

Another option I’ve used is household paint containers. Empty of course!
