    Comments about Porta Brace PB-2780F Hard Case with Foam Interior:

    I was a little unsure about this case when I purchased it because I was worried that I wouldn't be able to comfortable roll the case with the side handles that it has. I thought I would need a push and pull handle but that's not necessary because if you want to roll the case around it is the perfect size for rolling with the side handle, and that handle is very sturdy.

    The case is the perfect size for our AF100 plus accesories like lavalier case, shotgun, lenses, external recorders, batteries, and monitors. Whatever you need for most shoots will fit in one case and you will have enough padding on the side in case you're worried about banging the case around. The foam is easy to cut. This case is perfect for a large case, and the price is reasonable.

    The Porta Brace Hard Case fit the bill!

      Comments about Porta Brace PB-2780F Hard Case with Foam Interior:

      I needed a case to haul our Tricaster Control Surface (switcher) from location to location. I needed something big enough to hold this. I had not had a case that you could form yourself by taking out foam to fit our control surface. It also has three layers of foam, so on the second layer I have the keyboard and mouse along with our Bolt wireless camera transmitter and receiver. Great case with the wheels to move around.

        Comments about Porta Brace PB-2780F Hard Case with Foam Interior:

        I'm using the utility case to protect and move a Sony XDCam EX3. The case allowed us to create a shaped storage area in the foam for the camera and all our gear. While the case is larger than I anticipated, it's proven to be great, especially because it has wheels! I highly recommend the case to other camera operators.

        Comments about Porta Brace PB-2780F Hard Case with Foam Interior:

        After using about a dozen different Porta Brace products for the past 10 years this is the first time I purchased one of their hard sided cases. It's impressive, rugged and build to take a beating. The only complaint is the case is heavy - I have one of the larger cases and it weighs 40 pounds before I add my equipment.

          Comments about Porta Brace PB-2780F Hard Case with Foam Interior:

          I had a little problem finding the right fit for this piece of equipment and was about purchase one that I wasn't completely satisfied with but was tired of seaching when I discovered the PB-2780F. The case worked like magic. It was the best fit and I saved about $200.00.
