    Porta Brace CBA-HPX500 reviews

    CBA-HPX500 Camera Body Armor (Blue) is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't judge a book by its cover After 3 cameras in 10 years, all protected by beautifully engineered porta brace protectionthis product is nothing short of disappointing. Here's what I'm talking about. Can't access ND wheel easily.completely covers itno access Can't access WB pre-set switches eaislycompletely covers itno access After importing the product all the way to AustraliaI assumed the basic operation of the camera woudn't be hampered. I am still a loyal porta brace fanbut this cover needs serious modification, esspesially for a run and gun ENG based cameraman Like I said, Disapointing Rob Rebecca - Australia

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great! I bought this for the sole purpose of protecting my camera in Uganda against all the red dust, and anything else. It did exactly what I thought it would do. I don't want to get into a battle of words with the previous reviewer, but from my experience: The ND wheel access was fine for me, it's not completely covered. You may have to lean forward to see what you're set on, because of the way that the armor rests against the camera, and it creates a, lip. True,the preset WB, Gain, etc switches are completely covered, until you roll the flap up and fasten it to the provided velcro, then you can access everything fine all day long. With the flap closed, yes, it's covered. The make and material are top notch--water resistant and very rugged. The only fault I can think of is the fastening strap that goes across the front, near the viewfinder. The loop that the velcro belt goes through is lower and at a different angle than the height of the velcro belt on the other side. When you connect the two, you end up with the strap almost right in the way of the viewfinder fixture. You have to push it aside, etc, to plug in the viewfinder, so it has an odd flow to it. Not a deal breaker, but not well thought out in my opinion.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Protection for Camera We ended up using the rain cover bag more than the porta brace armor. Both worked very well!!
