Advantages: Brilliant quality leather, durable, protective and stylish
Disadvantages: Not 100% waterproof
I can be pretty clumsy, so my partner bought me a case for my Canon camera (as well as the camera!) which I was really pleased with, the quality and fit is amazing and it is built to last. The case design number is DCC-75.
Canon is a renowned and trusted brand of camera makers, amongst other things including printers and scanners. The company is Japanese and established as Canon in 1947 which is why it is so well known and respected as a brand. My camera is a digital Canon IXUS, which come in many styles and different models, but are generally the same same, so this case should be quite versatile with both old and new cameras.
The case is made of genuine, soft leather, that has a matt black colour. It is lovely and thick and feels like a quality product. I couldn't think of a better material to protect my camera, I know that if i dropped this from a fair height that it would be working perfectly fine. There is a silver, small, rectangular embossed tag on the bottom front corner with 'Canon Digital IXUS' engraved on it. One drawback of the case is that it is not 100% waterproof, with the slightly open side panels and cable loop hole water will be able to enter the case.
The case itself is rectangular, the same as the camera funnily enough and a light 82g in weight. It has approximate dimensions of 10cm width x 5 cm height and 2.5cm depth, the camera case side panels are flexible to the point where you can flatten the case and it springs back into shape perfectly. The case has one opening, this is via the top of the case that has a fold over flap much like a letter, though it opens fully exposing the entire width and depth of the case for easy insertion and access to your camera. This has a magnetic seal that catches easily when closed.
The sides of the case are slightly lower than the top of the case, letting you see into the sides, I guess this is so you can quickly check if your camera is in there! Half way down the left hand side is a split and small, square opening that allows you to feed your camera cord through and carry it, which is very practical. The back of the case has a handy belt loop attached, again in soft leather. I don't use this but I can imagine it would be handy for some folk.
This case is available in camera shops and online, at sites such as Amazon, Play and Ebay, prices are in the range of £18, which I feel is a great price for a long lasting and protective camera case.
Summary: Great compact leather camera case for Canon IXUS cameras
