Case Study on Case Design a Testament to Innovation and Quality in Flight Case Manufacturing
As industry professionals, we have all always believed in the importance of safeguarding our high-value equipment during transit and operation. With the increasing value of equipment and the need for robust protection for sophisticated camera and production equipment, this belief has only intensified. It’s no surprise that Case Design, a company that shares this same conviction, has caught this publication’s attention1.
Let’s delve a bit deeper into the realm of camera cases. When it comes to housing our prized cameras, it’s a no-brainer to turn to Case Design. They’ve proven their mettle in the industry, crafting robust cases that keep our precious gear safe from the rough-and-tumble of on-set life. They’ve got a solution for every type of camera, from the Sony Venice and the Arri Alexa Mini to the Grass Valley LDX series and beyond. Just ask the folks over at Finepoint, who’ve been entrusting their equipment to Case Design for years. They can vouch for the durability of these cases, some of which are still going strong after 25 years of use and abuse. A testament to the resilience and quality Case Design offers in each of their creations. They’re not just cases, they’re guardians of our gear, and I, for one, wouldn’t have it any other way1.
Sony FR7 PTZ case
Case Design’s FR7 PTZ case is something that truly stands out. Its robust build and thoughtful design is a testament to the brand’s commitment to quality. The case is designed around the Sony FR7 Full-frame PTZ Interchangeable Lens camera, along with the Sony 28-135mm lens, Sony RM-IP500 Remote Controller, and the Sony RMT-RC1 Remote Commander, with ample space for cables and power cords. The case is crafted with a Genuine Pelican body, known for its ruggedness and reliability. It’s the sort of case that you know your equipment is safe in, regardless of where you take it. The foam interior is laser-cut to ensure a snug fit for your camera and accessories. It comes with wheels and a pull-out handle, making transportation a breeze. And it’s not a small case either – to give you an idea, a 6-foot man standing next to this case serves as a testament to its size. Even with its size, it weighs only 22 lbs, making it as portable as it is protective. With dimensions of 25 x 20 x 14 inches, it certainly isn’t small, but it’s checked baggage, meaning you can take it with you wherever your shoots maybe1. This is the kind of case that a cameraman can rely on – it’s not just a case, it’s a companion in the field.
