How to protect your camera from getting damaged while travelling

You need to look after your camera while travelling, but what is the best way to do so? Using custom-cut foam in a protective case is the perfect place to start.

Are you planning a trip and want to take lots of great photographs of your adventures? Travelling with a camera has amazing benefits, but there are plenty of opportunities for it to get damaged during your travels and you risk losing the ability to capture all those amazing memories.

To better protect your camera from getting damaged while travelling, you can use custom-cut foam within a case. This will help to keep all your camera parts organised and prevent them smashing into the side of your case by absorbing the impact. Your expensive camera and accessories will remain safe when you are moving from place to place.

Get a protective case for your camera

The easiest way to secure your camera while travelling is to keep it in a protective case. A backpack does not have a hard shell so is not entirely suitable. Something like a tool box or lockable case is a great option.

How can you protect your camera while travelling?

A protective case without a foam inner will not necessarily keep your camera and its accessories free from damage while travelling. An inexpensive option is to line the inside of the case with custom-cut foam. Filling a toolbox with enough custom foam, for example, will cost less than $100 - even if you choose a premium high-density foam with a 10-year warranty.

Benefits of custom-cut foam

Each camera accessory should have a specific place.

Once you have selected a suitable piece of protective foam, you can cut it to fit all your accessories – giving each item an individual slot.

If everything has its place, you will know when you are missing something, or if you've forgotten to pack up a photo shoot correctly. Plus, when you cut the foam to fit each item, you can be confident knowing that the pieces will not move around and crash into each other while you are in transit.

Camera protection while travelling is vital, and the best cost-effective solution is to use custom-cut foam from Clark Rubber. We can help you to cut foam to fit your case, and then you can lay your accessories out as per your requirements. We even sell diced foam sheets that you can customise by removing the inner cubes.
