Best way to pack a DSLR camera for trip?

I will be taking a couple of rides over 400 miles and wish to transport my digital slr camera. Any suggestions for packing this expensive item would help in my trip planning.

Even after that, maybe put it in a small box with some bubble wrap like you're going to ship it.

We've always packed sensitive items in the recommended cases, wrapping, etc. and then packed those cases in between a couple of layers of clothes just for the extra protection. We've even navigated the airlines with some very fragile paper-shell seashells from our trips to Florida in this manner, and they arrived completely intact.
