    What travel case do you use for your Widelux?

    I don't have a leather case, nor do I like to use leather. What other options are there for Widelux protection while traveling?

    Thanks

    fwiw I think they are relatively fragile. I had mine in the soft leather case (no impact protection to speak of) inside a small camera bag with foam on all sides of the camera. My bad slipped off a peg in a bathroom stall in Florence and fell maybe 3 feet to the floor. Camera did not work afterwords, required service.
