After damaging a H4N screen and taking several months to repair I though best to use a little pelican micro box to hold the little guy. When you are in hurry and things are flying around on a location the last thing you want is to ruin a piece of gear. The little box it comes with is not quite up to snuff. A drop from the counter is all it took. Oops! I thought this the best solution, as several of the last shoots have been around a pool.
