The Sony LCS SC5 is a sturdy bag that will store every Sony camcorder and most modern camcorders. The main bag is well padded and protects the camera from any bumps and scratches. I don't believe it is protective enough to save the camcorder if I was to drop the bag though.
The front pocket is a good size and can be used to store accessories in (I use mine to store an external mini boom mike). The other two on the side are smaller and it is difficult to see a use for them. A few AA batteries are the most use I've ever gotten from these pockets.
The shoulder strap is too short for me to use, as I am 6 ft 2, but I believe it would be too short for most adults to carry comfortably. The handle at the top is also too small for me to fit my hand in.
Overall this bag doesn't protect my camcorder enough and certainly isn't practical.
