Safety comes first, especially when you take out your expensive DSLR camera for a spin. You already know that the world is a rough place for cameras, with all sorts of jagged nasties waiting to take their toll on your beautifully finished pride and joy. And the solution to that problem is Camera Armor – a close fitting stay-on glove for your Digital SLR. A solution that will definitely help you to add additional protection to your expensive photo equipment, especially when you take photos in an unfriendly environment, without needing to pay too much for it.
Each Camera Armor model is made from shock absorbing, flexible silicon-rubber, with each set designed to fit your digital SLR model like a glove. This ensures the best possible fit and protection while continuing to allow full access to all buttons, cable ports, and battery/memory compartments. The unique thing about Camera Armor is the fact that it protects your camera wherever you go, regardless of what you are doing. You put it on, and leave it on, so no matter what bumps life throws at you, your camera is protected.
Camera Armor products come with the “Body Armor”; an LCD shield made from polycarbonate that protects the screen from impact and abrasion; and the Lens Armor, a rugged protective ring that stretches to fit most common lenses. The Lens armor doubles as a sun hood, and can be rolled out of the way for wide angle shot. It even comes with a handy lens cap leash that attaches your lens cap to the lens armor with a silicone tab.
Currently there are Camera Armor kits designed specially for 10 digital SLR cameras: Canon EOS 30D, Canon Digital Rebel XTi (400D), Canon EOS 5D, Nikon D70/D70s, Nikon D80, Nikon D200, Nikon D40, Sony Alpha A100, Canon Mark II Series 1DN & 1DS and Fuji FinePix S5. The price for a complete Camera Armor kit is between $49.95 and $79.95, depending on the model.
