      As Good As Pelican

      By Nik

      from Boston, MA

      Comments about Porta Brace PB-2550F Hard Case with Foam Interior (Blue):

      Went with this case because it was cheaper than the pelican case. I'm glad I did and you can even angle the handle to make it easier to pull.

        Room for all the camera gear. Easy, quick and simple to make spots just the right size. Love the wheels on the case - have always had to carry the case prior to this one.

              It does not seal well, I hope it keeps my equipments safe inside but from the outside, the top of the case does not line up with the bottom part and it's crooked. But its not the worst part yet, the inside-space is really bumpy, bumps over the wheels and another big bump on the top, the retractable handle is shaky when its retracted. the foams are good and it's pulling out the foams.

                Comments about Porta Brace PB-2550F Hard Case with Foam Interior (Blue):

                I got this for my Sony NX-70U, and ended up being able to also fit my Azden UHF wireless lav kit in here, too.

                The quality is fanstastic and the piece of mind when transporting gear is priceless. It is also within the "carry-on" guidelines set by every plane I've flown, since I refuse to check my $3,000 worth of equipment I've got inside. The handles are really high-quality and have a nice firm feel to them. The included lock was a nice little bonus, and I found the foam inside to be fairly straight forward to cut to the size I needed.

                I am noticing that the color of the plastic where the black latch makes contact with the lid (in a closed & locked position) has turned white which indicates a some stress on it. It seems to be a little too snug of a close, but I do not see it cracking/failing. That is the ONLY negative thing I see with this.

                I plan to purchase Porta Brace cases for ALL of my gear... "This is the beginning of a beautiful friendship!"

                    I place my Sony HVR-Z5 & wireless mic set in it for the protection I need when I'm transporting the video camera from one location to another. No worries cause even if you bang it up you still have that peace of mind knowing your equipment is very safe! This item is so light weight and ergonomically right. Easy to store and remove your camera when you need it! A must buy for that "Ultimate" protection you need!
