    any good small holster/cases for a camera the size of the d40? i just want to be able to put the camera (d40) into some protective case (should i get a hard case) and then just throw the case into my backpack for when i travel

    pelican cases sure seem to get a lot of praise.


    Kind of a waste of space to get a hard case for a camera body though. Although it would depend on the backpack you were carrying i guess. It'd make it a pain in the ass to get it out if you needed it though.

    the slingpro 100AW has plenty of room for the D40, and a couple of lenses. It's like 60 bucks on amazon right now.

    maybe not a hard case like the pelicans.. im looking for something that just barely covers the entire camera and lens, something like this:

    http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Gear-...5?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1184248144&sr=8-1

    would that provide enough protection for it? i want to just throw that into my backpack and not have the camera be damaged w/ me moving around n stuff

    they've gone away from that idea lately. I always had leather cases like you are describling for my old film bodies, part of it stayed on at all times, then the cover just snapped on when you wanted to put it away.

    theres some foam or neoprene ones out there, you probably just need to go into a store with a decent selection
