The Cam Crate is the latest Kickstarter project to catch our eye, mainly because it’s dedicated to protecting something near and dear to our gear-loving hearts. Designer Matthew Geyster was inspired to create a waterproof, mudproof, crushproof, and shockproof case for his DSLR after his fear of damaging his camera caused him to miss more than a few precious shooting opportunities. The composite used for the case’s exterior shell is built to be tough — so much so that the Cam Crate will sell with a no questions asked lifetime warranty. The protective armor and soft interior are also designed to fit most DSLRs without attached battery grips. A larger version to support bigger rigs is in the works as well. Pledging $50 to the cause will land you a Cam Crate and a neck strap when the first models hop off the line. A more generous donation of $100 gets you a special edition Cam Crate, plus a wrist and neck strap. The only question we still have is, will it blend?
