I have an HDC-TM900 which is a superb camcorder but it has no neck or shoulder strap anchor points so I asked for this Panasonic case as a gift. The 900 just fits if you move the velcro insert (package says made for 700 series - perhaps they are slightly smaller?). Case is made of leather which is not necessary and is probably not weather proof (I'll keep using ziplock poly bags for that function!) but at least the case does have an adjustable strap. Case is not padded inside. I'd advise comparing this with alternative padded and weatherproof bags.Padded Anti-Shock Case for Panasonic HDC-SD90,SD80,SD60,SD900,SD800,TM900,HS80, & more DV Camcorders(Black Colour)
I was looking for a case which is not as bulky as those padded bags and looks decent, I got it all in one with this case. Its not padded, therefore don't expect this, but the case is durable enough for carrying around, comes with a strap, therefore ideal for transportation. The camcorder just drops in and comes out without any fuss.
This will just fit the larger Panasonic range like x920 but not with extra long batteries, so it is a pity that the case isn't a couple of centimeters longer, however the quality is outstanding, certainly feels and smells like real leather (?) and is branded 'Panasonic' although many other makes would fit.I think this case will last for years and am very pleased with it.
I needed a case for my Panasonic HC-V500M - something small and neat with no unnecessary padding and pockets. This was just what I wanted. It is advertised as being suitable for the 800 and 900 series of Panasonic camcorders, and the box it arrives in states it is for the 700 series - but I can confirm it is just perfect for the V500M as well. It is a nicely made product - all the sides are stiffened leather, and the top flap is flexible with magnetic closures. Inside, there is a small moveable velcro strip that can be used to partition off a small bit of the case, maybe for SD cards (or a battery may just fit, depending on how big your camcorder is). Soft fabric inside, and the camcorder just drops in easily. Very nice product.
Case is well built and definitely value for money. The case itself is too large for my v210 but that is soon sorted with the addition of a little padding material which I would advise as there is little to none as is. As you can see from the photos the small compartment at the end has a spare vbt-190 battery in it with room for another .Cannot comment on the larger battery as I do not have one to try. No room for mains lead but with 2 or possibly 3 batteries at your disposal you can probably leave it at home/hotel.
Ordered this for my Panasonioc V520 camcorder, as it seemed to be the best of a poor selection on Amazon.
It proved to be a pleasant surprise.
What the seller isn't pushing enough, I think, is this is genuine Panasonic (turned up in Panasonic box and bears the part number VW-PS65
Genuine leather and made from v high quality materials. Webbing strap with stainless steel fittings. Soft padded interior with seperate compartment suitable for SD cards. magentic stainless steel press stud catches
The V520 fits nicely, without moving side to sode. As this case is a "fits all" case there is a bit of up and down movement of the camera but if it bothered, a dist cloth could be used to give the extra padding
Back of packaging states this is actually designed for the HDC - HS 700, HDC - TM 700, and HDC SD 700 range
