Camera Armor – Protect your investment!

Now your DSLR camera is essentially a computer with a lens on it, right? And you protect your laptop with cases,sleeves, and keyboard protectors,etc.

Take a look at Camera Armor. These are the folks that make some of the best IPOD protectors with the SPECK division.

Basically, take the same silicon rubber used for those IPOD cases, shape it to allow all of your camera functions to operate as normal, add lens protection, LCD screen protection, and there you have it.

See for yourself in the video we made at Photo Plus Expo: (there are some other products you may be interested in)

One thing I particularly dig about this product has to do with my lifestyle. if I’m not going on a specific shoot where I need all of the right tools and bring the right camera bag to carry it all, i may just grab a camera and throw it over my shoulder.

But when I have to throw it in my backpack, it’s a bit scary. As I said, it’s a computer with a lens. I need a bit of protection.

That’s what I love about this product. As always, right tool for the job.

When we talk about a product here, we’ve seen it ,held it, heard the sales rap , and then we have to use it.

That’s what is going to happen. I’m throwing my Nikon D200 in my backpack for a week of general use. I’ll report back next weekend.

Does it pick up lint? Can I use all of the controls as easy? What is the “hand” feel like? I’ll tell you the truth. And if you feel it’s something that you may use, cool. Mission accomplished.

So, stay tuned.

Cheers!
Damon Webster
