Some gear needs extra protection especially when going on an outdoor production. Here is how to quickly make a hard case to protect your gear. I am actually going to use part of the packaging that the gear was sent with. While this is not a solution for every piece of gear, it is often a quick and solid way to protect your gear.
I recently started using the Feiyu Tech 3 Axis Gimbal. Being a small piece with some electronics inside, I wanted to protect it when going on productions, but the hard case was not yet in stock. I still needed the gimbal, so I went ahead and got it, figuring that I will figure the hard case later.
As many camera gear pieces, the gimbal came in a cardboard box. Luckily, that cardboard box was fitted with hard foam insert, and the different pieces of the gimbal (charger, batteries, cables) are nicely tucked inside that protective foam.
BOOM! I knew what to do.
