Sometimes a “gadget” doesn’t have to have flashing lights or take batteries. Sometimes it can just be a neat, useful accessory. Which is the category Camera Armour falls into.
SLR Cameras are delicate pieces of equipment, but they have to operate in some pretty unforgiving environments. Even the relatively sheltered environment of a show such as this one has it’s perils – a camera swinging from your shoulder can easily bang against any of the stands as you walk around. It makes you a little paranoid…
So what do you do? You encase the camera in a thick rubber case that absorbs knocks and scrapes but leaves the controls accessible. It works too, the armour means you can bang the camera around but there’s no loss of usability.
