Zacuto Releases AF100 Foam Insert

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Jul 27, 2011) - Panasonic AG-AF100 owners will be pleased to know that Zacuto has released a custom foam insert specifically developed to accommodate the AF100 and all of its accessories. The AF100 Foam Insert was made to fit into a 24.6 x 19.7 x 8.6 in IM-2700 Storm Case or any similar hard shelled carrying case. All Storm Cases are watertight, padlockable, made in the USA and unconditionally guaranteed for life.

"The AF100 Foam Insert allows plenty of room for the camera as well as a Zacuto Universal Baseplate and follow focus," says Zacuto Rentals Manager, Joe DeJulius. "This is perfect because pulling focus on the AF100 is absolutely essential."

But the AF100 Foam Insert has room for much more than just a baseplate and follow focus. This new foam accessory also features compartments designated for the Zacuto EVF, Z-Finder, a matte box, lenses, cables, manuals, rod extensions and much more. The Zacuto Universal Baseplate can also stay attached to the AF100 while being stored in the case. This is a very convenient option for shooters and will also cut the time it takes to set up the camera in half. The AF100 Foam Insert has room for anything you would ever need when working with your Panasonic AF100 camera.

"We have been using these Zacuto foam inserts for our rental gear for a long time," says DeJulius. "Our foams have been used and transported on a weekly basis for several years. The Zacuto foam inserts are extremely durable."

Zacuto has been developing foam inserts for a variety of different camera packages for over five years. Our custom foam designs allow users to transport their gear in one compact organized case that allows for easy tear down and set up. The Zacuto AF100 Foam Insert retails for $205.
