Hi,
after getting recently a used Sinar F2, I'm now left with the task of finding an adequate bag to carry it into the filed, but not very far from the car. After searching for the available solutions, I've pretty narrowed the choice to a Tenba car case CCV45 (view camera model), since I'm not going to transport the Sinar by plane. Therefore,
- Where can I buy TENBA's cases on-line in Europe? TeamWork, UK, sell them but I would appreciate any alternatives out there in order to get the best price.
- Another great alternative to the TENBA would be the Lightware cases, but I can't seem to find European dealers. Do they exist?

Thanks in advance,
Cristiano

I've had both the Tenba and Liteware, they are both equally good cases, very similar.

But working out of a trunk (boot?) or station wagon may be difficult because the lid is large and you need the height to open it up and to comfortably work out of the case... so check that factor as well.

Hi Frank,
thanks for the input and info concerning the lid size. Although I've a station wagon, I'll take the case out of the boot and carry it to the location... just at a stone's throw away from the car of course.
Finally, I've made my mind and ordered the TENBA CCV45 from TeamWork (http://www.teamworkphoto.com/), since it's cheaper than the Lightware V4000, which costs more 93 GBP at The Flash Centre (http://www.theflashcentre.com). Like you said, they are both good choices, so I choose to save a few bucks and buy some sheet film instead :)
