I place my Sony HVR-Z1U 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 ergonimically right. Easy to store and remove your camera when you need it! A must buy for that "Ultimate" protection you need!

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....Read complete review

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 use this case for my Video and LSR Cameras. it's very sturdy and protects my equipment. the only thing that I'm not so satisfied with is that it's not big enough for me.

    Overall good case in a good size

    By Josh

    from Atlanta

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

    I bought this to carry my backup gear in my car, so it would have protection from being banged around, and so I could lock it down, and not take up to much space in the process.

    Overall the case is of good quality. The lock holes seem kind of weak however, so I'm not sure how much theft protection it will actually provide. I'm using a standard keyed Masterlock, and inadvertantly twisted the lock when taking it off, and the plastic hole stretched & whitened pretty easily.

    The case does seem to be a great size for carry-on.

    Lastly, the mold seems to be the same as the mold used for an HPR case that I have. The HPR case is a larger model, and has stronger lock holes than this one. I'm not sure if that's due to the type of plastic used or the thickness in that spot.

    Simple storage case

    Not sure I prefer the precut foam vs dividers, it limits the amount of storage available in each case.

    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.

        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!
