The Pelican Air range of cases has been announced recently. Apparently, they boast all of the strength we’ve come to expect from Pelican while reducing the weight by up to 40% – winner. We had a chance to catch up with Pelican at NAB 2016 in Las Vegas and discuss the technology behind their lightweight and durable products. Pelican Air – lightweight and convenient solutions It looks as though Pelican are set to continue innovating their lightweight case technology and, as consumers, we’re going to continue to benefit from their commitment to reducing the effect gravity has on our poor legs. With the Pelican Air range and whatever comes next, we may finally see a time where every day isn’t legs day.Read more

MyCaseBuilder is a fantastic website-based service that enables you to design your own foam inserts, for any case. Our friends over at NewsShooter caught up with the team at PhotoPlus Expo to learn more. I’m yet to find another service that is this easy to use. Whether you’re looking for a specific case & foam combo, or just a custom foam insert for your current case, MyCaseBuilder can supply either. The website uses your required case size as a base point, and using their shape library you add products to design your custom foam cut out. If you’re piece of kit is not in the shape library, simply add an image of your kit on a clean background, and trace it using the pen tool. Once you’ve tweaked the trace and added some measurements, MyCaseBuilder will instantly convert this into a 3D render and add this to your custom insert. I’ve slaved over many an insert in the past, faffing around with pick and pluck foam to try and get that perfect custom cut out; it’s time consuming, doesn’t last and doesn’t look professional. This service tackles all of these; with the finger notch feature, and use of polyethylene foam (denser than your standard pick and pluck) the foam will last much longer. I can see this being fantastic for awkward shaped bits of kit, drones and motorised stabilizers immediately spring to mind. The company are US based offering a flat rate shipping anywhere within the US, plus international shipping. Orders take 7-9 working days to process.Read more
