The CamRade camCover P2 is a black, custom-fit protective cover that fits specific models of Panasonic ENG-style shoulder cameras. It protects against scratches resulting from daily wear and tear, increases the lifespan of the camera body and ensures it remains in perfect condition. The built-in camRade rainProtector helps you protect your camcorder whenever the weather turns, or dust is kicked up. The camCover P2 is an absolute must-have that can prevent damage to your most valuable piece of equipment. The camCover is designed and suitable for shoulder camera work but is also great while your camera is attached to a Panasonic (SHAN) VCT -plate, tripod, pedestal, or any other camera support solution.
Durable and functional design camRade
understands your job and knows how the conditions can change during a (live)production. This camera cover has been created through years of experience and feedback from camera operators all over the world. Since Panasonic has changed very few aspects of the outer camera bodies in recent years, camRade has chosen to make a universal camCover that can be used on the most recent models of HPX- and CX-series of shoulder cameras.
The best materials for optimal comfort
The camRade camCovers are handmade with flexible Cordura® fabric that has a soft foam padding on the inside for maximum protection and optimal comfort. Thanks to the water- and abrasion-resistant soft-feel, it is extremely comfortable to work with. Each camCover comes with a wireless pouch to store a small audio receiver or other small pieces of equipment. The built-in rain protection cover is stored in the pouch on the back of the cover, always within reach and equipped with a cord and clip to avoid losing it.
Easy access to what is important
The camCover secures easily around the camera body with hook-and-loop fasteners, while leaving quick and easy access to its controls, memory card slots, connectors, viewfinder, lens and battery. On the top of the camera, underneath the top handle, a rollable piece of fabric can be used to protect the ventilation unit.
camRade was established in 1998 and has an extensive track-record of protecting broadcast and film cameras. Since the start of camRade, the team of people behind the brand have continued to work closely with several audio and camera operators, broadcasters, and rental companies. Today we can say that we are the consolidated world leader in camera protection.
Why do I need a camRade camCover?
The lifespan of electrical equipment is generally considerably longer when it is cared for and protected. Above and beyond the fact that extending the lifespan has major financial consequences, it also contributes to a better environment.
As you may have experienced before, repairs to your camera body are extremely expensive. Once it is out for repair, the camera may not be available for a long period of time. In many cases a replacement is not quickly or easily available and you may have to face the cost of renting a camera. What if you could have prevented this by using a camRade cover?
Your camera is often your most valuable piece of equipment while gathering news or during field productions. The durability and unique features of the camCover P2 will protect your investment in a way that plastic bags and other cheap covers cannot.
How good is the protection of the built-in rain cover?
The built-in rain cover that comes with the camCover P2, better known as the rainProtector, truly helps against the first drops of a downpour. It covers the entire top of the camera including a standard ENG lens. It provides protection against rain, sleet, and snow as well as corrosive atmospheres such as salty air, or smoke.
The rainProtector provides instant protection that is always within reach. For optimum protection against inclement weather, we strongly advise you to add a camRade wetSuit or camRade rainCover to your list of essential equipment.
