What is the Best Bag or Case for Carrying Expensive Cameras?

Custom foam inserts, plastic carrying cases with foam

Purchasing the perfect camera and lens for a business or a hobby requires ample amounts of research. People that care about the photography they are producing do not just walk into a store and buy the first camera they see. Cameras and lens are not cheap, and each brand and type offer different options and pros. Hours, if not days, are spent researching the perfect purchase. When you finally make your purchase, you might get so excited to go out and shoot that you forget to acquire the perfect carrying case. No new camera and lens purchase are complete without the additional purchase of a plastic carrying case with foam.

Many articles and blogs discuss safe ways to travel with a camera and lens. These are important considerations, but most problems do not matter once your gear is securely placed in a plastic carrying case with foam. What are the main issues with soft-sided camera carrying cases?
When traveling, you want to make sure you always keep your camera and lens with you. If you can, keep the gear secured on your lap. Once your gear leaves your site (i.e., on a plane and using overhead storage), you never know what can happen. In a soft-sided case or bag, you have a lot more to worry about than if your gear was in a blow molded case.

When on the road, you need to keep your gear dry. Modern DSL cameras have batteries and electrical circuits that quickly and permanently break when they get wet. A blow molded case is watertight, which means that even if it starts to rain, your gear is fully covered.
