Sound proofing a camera
« on: March 29, 2010, 03:12:29 PM »
I am in the process of trying to make a completely silent "blimp".   I have been reading about mlv's and things of the such to use when constructing one and the more I read the less I seem to know.  Here is the case I plan on using:

What is the order of materials I should be using?   Say the camera is in the center and working my way outwards.  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks!

I talked with the nice people over there and want to buy the products from them but to ship 60 dollars worth of stuff it costs 40.  That makes no sense, there is no way it is that heavy.

Its not the weight of the product that causes the high freight cost, it is the dimensional charge.
depending on how many running feet you purchase dictates the roll diameter. Maybe we can try a different packaging method to help lower the cost for you.( ie. 3 pcs @ 1' each folded in a box as opposed to 3 linear feet packaged as 1 roll.)
My contact info is below.
