The Best

When investing in a bag or case, think of it as an investment in your expensive camera equipment. It’s important to pick a system that not only protects your equipment, but also stores your camera equipment effectively and makes your life easier. A case should function as a full system, one that can PROTECT, CARRY & ORGANIZE your gear. When shopping for new gear the sheer number of options, styles, and builds can seem daunting… Shopping for a hard case can be a similar situation. With so many sizes, shapes and colors available, it can be a tough process to pick out the right one. Camera cases and bags can be broken down into a couple groups based on materials and level of protection. These categories can be used to guide through the options and pick a case that best suits the operator’s needs.

comparing camera protection solutions

The most common options in the market would be the soft bag, such as a backpack or handbag, along with common EVA semi-hard-shell cases. These are typically the less expensive transport options, often smaller in design and less protective, only intended for occasional use. While the cost can seem like an initial factor it is important to consider the lifespan of the device, and how it will be used. These bags and cases are designed to be small and unobtrusive.

They are the small option that you’d throw over your shoulder, to take with you on a light day trip. However due to the lack of protection these soft bags and cases offer less resistance from the environment, and contact damage, usually non-waterproof and non-dust resistant, you wouldn’t want to allow these bags out of your sight. Small bumps from external forces could damage the gear within, which is not an ideal situation for a fragile camera. The reality of cameras is that when something goes wrong, it goes wrong extremely fast. You don’t want to open your camera up to damage from simple transport, especially when minor damage can cause catastrophic issues later. When picking a camera bag or case it is extremely important that you pick an option that will keep your gear protected in the environments that you usually operate in.

The hard-shell case takes protection to the extreme, with a rigid exterior shell that forms both the structure of the case and also a physical barrier to the elements. The hard shell is crush resistant, dust-proof and waterproof, allowing for protection of your gear in almost any environment. These cases can be stacked on top of each other for storage and transport, and can be locked from the outside making them safe for air travel. A hard case is a little extra peace-of-mind, knowing that regardless of what the environment throws at you, the gear inside the cases will arrive safe and ready to roll.

Multiple interior accessories are available for the perfect photo or video setup such as cubed foam, padded dividers and lis organizers.

The NANUK hard case line allows you to choose the right sized case for your camera setup and equipment, giving you the ability to transport your gear safely in a customized configuration. There are multiple case sizes, padded dividers, lid organizers and foam inserts, allowing perfect customization for your camera equipment needs. For smaller, one camera body there are cases like the NANUK 925, while scaling up in size to the larger multi body and lenses setups you have larger behemoth options like the 960 and 970. The design ethos with the team at NANUK was to build the cases from the ground up, build around the equipment and how that equipment will be used. This platform of logistical design, creates the most streamline option for case protection. 

Each NANUK Hard Case model offers multiple options, including: colours, foam inserts, decal wraps, and even lock-latch mechanisms. Every case maximizes customization with multiple foam inserts, allowing the user to decide exactly how their gear will be stored. There are camera model specific foam inserts with laser cut partitions for cameras and accessories, along with the more traditional pluck foam cube inserts, allowing for any shape within the foam tray. The insert design allows photographers to transport the gear in the most organized layout possible.

The purpose of a hard case isn’t simply one of protection, it should allow the user to be ready to shoot, to operate at any time in any environment.

The nanuk difference


The Power Claw latch system developed and used by NANUK hard cases is the most secure method to ensure that a case remains closed even in harsh environments. The double action design of the Power Claw system makes it impossible for the latch to open once secured in place, creating a superior closing system when compared to the systems used by competitors. The double action design means that once a case is closed, you can be sure it will remain that way until you are ready to access your gear within. Don’t take chances, don’t allow the latch on your case to become the weak link, go with a Power Claw latch system and be sure your gear stays safe and secure in your case.
