camera protection

the ruber sleve is mostly against dust and water , if you want real protection for your camera you will have to get a real bag for it, I use the sleve on some my units and they sometime limit the access of some commands on the body of the camera. Tamrac make good inexpensive bag.

Protection...

Would recommend this (or similar).

It protects agains dust, small knocks etc. And has the added advantage of soundproofing a little. If you're creeping up on a leopard in the bush... comes in handy.

Controls are accessible - only downside, its made for a limited range of cameras.

In UK buy from Camera Armor (for Canon and Nikon SLR Cameras)- warehouseexpress.com

Thanks for the tip.
I think those Rubber protection looks pretty good.
I dropped my cameras few times (not too high up) and knock them regularly and get annoy by it.

Thanks guys.
Fredo.
