Hmmm..where did I hear that before?
Anyway, there is a product I use all of the time, that we have been giving away here regularly, but have been remiss as of late.
Can you see it ?
Camera Armor lives on my camera bodies. It is a silicon, precision molded, outer case (hence the armor part) that helps protect my digital camera investment. very simple.
True story: Last week on a shoot, I was working in a pretty dim area with tons of folding seats. After leaving my camera body on a seat, I went to adjust the strobes. Satisfied with the correction, went back to the camera, picked it up and the strap had hooked onto the seat.
It came crashing down to the thankfully carpeted floor. Short fall. But enough to break a lens hood. Camera Armor saved the DSLR though, in my mind. Whew.
Sure I had extra bodies. Always double your gear on a gig. The protection I got from this was the difference between extra sweat, and just moving on.
When not on a shoot ,I use it on my daily Nikon D200, carried it around in an Oakley backpack with the rest of my junk…umm…important business papers, ipod, portable hard drive, headphones. You get the idea.
The beauty is every button on your camera works as it should. All of the operations are just as easy, and protected by this precision molded outer cover. Heck, these are the same folks that have made your iPod cases for years. New division here.
When I used to throw my Nikon F3, 35mm in my pack and not think twice, I knew the camera was built like a tank :” hammer nails with it all day , and it’ll still shoot straight”,so to speak.
The current computers with lenses need a bit more protection. I’m not saying you should throw your gear around. But when you need to add some protection, this is the right product.
OK, now the good news…Camera Armor feels that our readers should have the opportunity first hand to experience this great product!
