So, you’ve just bought a shiny new digital camera. Great! It might be a top-of-the-line compact camera, or a professional DSLR, but we’re sure you’re proud of your purchase. Of course, even if you buy the most rugged camera on the market, it still requires care and protection. Many cameras are permanently damaged by jolts and impact. After all, they are precision pieces of equipment often with several moving parts.
Kirk’s Camera Supply stocks a wide range of protective cases for your camera. Not only will they protect it from shocks and accidental drops, but will also make them easier to carry and less conspicuous.
Picking an appropriate case is important. Our trained staff can assist with any decisions you may have trouble making. There are different kinds of cases for different cameras and applications. Leather cases are very popular, as they are attractive and offer a modest level of protection. They are principally suited to compact cameras, as their small shape can easily slide into a leather holster.
Larger cameras, such as DSLRs, require another kind of case. These are frequently made from very tough, durable synthetic fabrics. They are large enough to hold the camera as well as accessories such as memory cards and pens. Many larger cases are essentially bags, and can also hold lenses, filters, cloths and other accessories.
Hard cases are the most durable and rugged of all, and are recommended in instances where the camera will be subjected to harsh environmental conditions (crossing the African savannah, for instance). Even softer DSLR carry bags are made of very tough material, so these should be used where the camera is at risk of being ‘bashed around’ (like on a flight).
In the end, it depends on your purposes and your specific model of camera. Browse the selection of cases and accessories that we have on our website. Feel free to visit our store to ask questions and find out which case is best for you.
