    Iím often shooting jobs by myself and donít have an extra hour to build out my camera rig at a location. Is there a good option out there for a padded transport case that isnít crazy expensive? Iím not worried about the case getting crushed as i would personally carry it. Thanks.

    i have set up myself a peli case that can hold the camera set up on the shoulder rig with evf, Monitor, battery, ... so that nothing can happen to the camera during transport.
    and then I also have a softer and lighter case that can hold the camera and some accessories

    Tenba has some awesome new bags in various sizes for exactly this. Also in a convenient Doctor Bag style.

    Think tank. I get a fully rigged Scarlet_W with Canon 17-120 zoom or 300mm into a Video Workhorse 21. And you can select a larger bag than this if required.

    Alternatively, you have the Think tank Video Rig series if your camera has 'handle-bars' on it!

    I've been using the classic cinebag cb01 the last 6 years. Currently fits a helium built out, but I only use this bag if I don't have to do any long distances. Best option and investment would be a custom innerspace case.

    I'll echo this as well. Has been great for a shoulder rig on rails and has the bonus of looking like luggage as a theft deterrent.

    I use the ARRI bags but they are getting very expensive with tariffs. At NAB I noticed Oconnor making their own versions.
