Hard Cases

Hard cases for cameras provide the ultimate in protection for your gear. While camera bags of all types will provide some measure of defence against impact and weather, a good hard case is designed to withstand serious punishment. If you’re travelling and need the utmost peace of mind that your cameras, lenses and other accessories are going to make it to your destination wholly intact and in working order, hard camera cases are overwhelmingly the best choice.

On the exterior, hard camera cases for photography are generally constructed from a hard-wearing material like resin plastic – something that’s designed to absorb impacts without breaking, while also being corrosion-proof and chemical-resistant. A good hard case should be shockproof and crushproof, and generally on a hard case’s specifications you should find a guide to how much force they can take. Steel hardware is often employed on the inside to maintain structural integrity.
