Heineken's "Heinikon" camera case!

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Skunkabilly, Apr 20, 2007.

  1. A Dutch company not known for making photo equipment asked if I could field-test and promote their new camera case. They promised it to be light weight, affordable and offer easy access but at the cost of skimpy padding and lack of waterproofing. I'm not too concerned since the only time I have a full photo kit is when shooting roadside scenics, where I find photo backpacks to be a bit of an overkill. It is also airline carry-on legal but again, with the lack of padding, I would reserve it to transport duty on roadtrips.

    I had my doubts and was hesitant at first, but they sent me a case of beer with it.

  2. Fantastic!! How was the beer?

    Not sure that it works as theft deterant. There are probably as many people who would break into your car to steal beer as there are people who would break in to get your gear. Doh!

    That looks like a camera bag (read: thief magnet). I would prefer something more discrete. LOL.
     
  8. Yeah, and probably look at the stuff and say, "Now what am I supposed to do with all this 'crap'? All I wanted was a few beers!" :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

    Put the camera equipment in the "Heinikon" camera "case", then drop the case into a Depends "all weather" plastic protector bag ....... think that might work to hold off people trying to get it out of your car?? :eek:)

    In this neighborhood that would be stolen before a nice new D2x sitting on the seat of a convertible.

  15. Thiefs steal for ALCOHOL or DRUGS... You're risking more then just keeping your camera right on the seat, IMO. :smile:

    To make it theft deterrent, just use an Old Milwaukee case instead. Then you can put The Beast in The Beast.
     
  20. Heh...thanks for the comments. It wasn't so much for theft deterrence as it was to see if I can sell my $200 camera pack and use the money toward something else instead.
