If you are looking for a simple and effective way to protect your expensive camera equipment while you’re on the go, the Tech Wrap may be a solution for you. Indeed, this multipurpose carry cloth can keep your everyday camera gear and travel essentials protected, clean, and dust-free. Let’s take a closer look at it!
Shooting On The Go
I guess there is one situation that every filmmaker faced at least once. You’re shooting something, time is tight, and you need to move to another location right now. Obviously, you don’t have the time to pack all your stuff back in your camera bag carefully. To get the shot you need before time is over, you quickly throw your camera/lenses/accessories in any available bag at your disposal – without protection – and you move on.
While this situation is pretty standard, transporting your gear without any protection can be dangerous. If you are lucky, you’ll end up with cosmetic blemishes on your camera equipment. In worst-case scenarios, you can end up with stripes on your lens, or even worse, break things.
To help with that, Eric Bohring developed a straightforward and effective solution: the Tech Wrap.
The Tech Wrap – A Simple Solution
Simple things are the best. The Tech Wrap is a multipurpose carry cloth designed to protect nearly all your camera equipment and accessories. This simple square cloth wraps around your item – like a burrito – and a cord secures it. It is a quick and easy process to keep your camera equipment protected and dust-free when you need to move fast.
Depending on the size of your items, the Tech Wrap is available in two sizes: Compact at 11 x 11 inches (28cm x 28cm) and Standard at 17 x 17 inches (43cm x 43cm). The Standard version can take a DSLR or Mirrorless camera, lenses, drones, small gimbals, and so on. The Compact version is better suited for camera accessories like hard drives, chargers, power banks, but it can also take compact cameras, small lenses, or tiny drones like the DJI Mavic Mini/Air.
The outside fabric is made from splashproof quality synthetic material. The inside fabric is made from soft microfibre and can also double as a cleaning cloth.
Pricing and Availability
The Tech Wrap campaign is live on Kickstarter until the 2nd of April 2020. If you contribute via the Kickstarter campaign, a Compact Tech Wrap retails for €15.00 while the Standard version is €20.00. Also, several bundles are available if you need more Tech Wrap or want to grab a bunch.
As always, please be aware that this is a crowdfunding project and not a retail shop, so do your research accordingly. cinema5D does its best to share only the projects that look legitimate, but as with any crowdfunded campaign, there’s always the risk of the product or service never coming to fruition.
