PortaBrace Cases...

Well here they are, i think the cut outs are coming out nice, still have plenty of room to add more equipment as it arrives.

Ha it's actually for the charger, most setups ive seen people forget a sport for the chargers and cables. This way I have everything with me at all times. The wad of cash was payment from a previous show that got stuck in there ha.

Alessandro, the way I do it is, locate the cam over by the hinges and turned facing the other way.

Then with the case standing up, the heavy cam is at the bottom balancing the case and with less pressure on the main foam.

Yep, if there's not enough foam to support the cam when the case is upright get 2 stiffer rubber strips and fit those between the cam and the bottom side of the case.

There's different quality pick 'n pluck foam, great and not so. The better quality is stiffer and springs back quicker, the not so just squashes flat with a slow recoil and should be avoided.

I cut it over 2 or 3 sessions over 2 days with a new blade each time. If I get impatient/frustrated, it spells disaster and a trip to the shop for more of the stuff and usually some bandages.
Cheers.
