So I have just taken delivery of My H3dII 50 and bought a pelican case with padded dividers (the 1510SC for those who are wondering) to keep it, the lens, a 15" laptop and some accessories in. My questions are;
-Should I keep the body/back, and lens wrapped in lens wraps inside the case?
-Will this add any significant additional protection?
- My fear that this will introduce more potential (for surface area) for dust and dirt to get into the case and work its way into the gear.
- It also will make it slower for setting up and breaking down to have to wrap and unwrap each component.
- Also, is there any disadvantage of storing the camera on its side in the case (the grip side up if the case is open) if it seems to pack better?
I want to strike the right balance of protecting my gear and ease of use...
