The manufacturer's web-site is http://www.camerarmor.com/. It's down at the moment so I can't comment further.

The topic of camera armour crops up from time to time in the "Bags and cases" forum to which I have moved this thread.

By the way, what's all this "javascript:emoticon" stuff about? It's not part of the phpBB specification. :shock:

Bob.

Sorry about that. The emoticon thingy happens when i drag the emoticon from the left side to the end of my statement when replying. I guess I just have to double click it everytime.

It's a javascript action which makes the emotion appear in the text box when you click it from the Emoticons tab. So when dragging it, it doesn't do the javascript action and therefore the command for the action is displayed in the post since it hasn't been executed (since you dragged it)

sounds logical ... lol!

I've not got it yet...but I might consider investing in it to protect my new 40D when going places like Knockhill racing circuit or when going up hills or in forests etc. for protection.

For the ultimate protection for your 40D, including that nice 650-1300mm (High Definition so you know it must be good) zoom lens for just $240

I suggest the ultimate in camera armour (camera and lens not shown, tripod is optional)

I wouldn't even use it as the front end of a telescope. :shock:

I got one for my 40D mainly because I work for Splat a paintball magazine, and well uh, i think it's pretty clear why I needed one, and thank god for it.
