I used a sharp kitchen knife ( kitchen devil I think) ,the blade was roughly the depth of my camera, around 3".I pushed the blade in to the handle, and used a sawing motion.when I had cut around my camera outline I just tore the access off with my fingers,It didn`t need to be perfect as it was going to be covered anyway.I glued the material with multi purpose UHU glue.Any other questions feel free to ask.

I`m going to be making changes in the next few days,my accessories are growing rapidly,I will document it fully.

Thanks for the interest

Ok thats what I thought, When I used to make road cases for microphones I would later take a bread knife and heat it up on the stove then smooth out the rough edges with the heated blade...good job and thanks 4 sharing your idea with us :-)

Thanks for the post!!!

I would just like to ask, what's the "black material" you used? Any suggestions about it? I'm planning to follow your example. I also plan to add some... what's its name? some inner divisions like Lowepro models have; it would just be a sheet of foam padding wrapped in "black material" and some velcro glued to it.

Again, thanks for the idea.

Thanks Jose , it was just regular black fabric my Dad bought to make a fancy dress costume, I just glued it to the foam with all purpose glue.I glued it in sections .I got a big enough piece of fabric so as to cover the foam, placed glued inside cut outs for camera and lens ,then I placed CAMERA + LENS IN CLEAR FOOD BAGS (to protect from glue) then slotted them in place until the glue had dried.then finished off glueing the sides waiting for each side to dry before starting on the next.
Make sure the foam is a snug fit in the bag, it can be removed and then you can use the bag as a normal sports bag.
