Advantages: great material
Disadvantages: more colours?
When you spend a lot of money on a nice camera, you will need a nice case to keep it in. I was disappointed with the lack of camera case in the pack when I bought my camera, so I went and bought a little wallet for it, when I saw this case for sale in comet in a bargain bucket I decided that I had to have it, I think I paid a third of the RRP for it. There are some good points to Comet struggling! I ditched my old case and used the new one which is slightly too small but because of the stretchy exterior it does not matter so much. It is made by one of my favourite brands for cases and covers so I feel I definitely got a bargain.
==Price and availability==
The cost of case online is £9.99 but I bought it for £3.00. It was in the bargain tin and I also picked up a
cover for my ipod for 50p. It was a great day for bargain shopping.
The cover is made from neoprene which is a stretchy waterproof material. It fits the camera quite snugly so I hope it starts to give a little bit as I ended up turning the camera on I tried to zip it up! It is a cool case though and matches my lap top case! I think the zip is well built and robust and it travels the whole length around the case so it is easy to open up. The case is easy to hold and it means that it will not slip from your grip easily.
I was so pleased with my buy and so glad I found it in the bargain bin, I never really bother looking in there usually. The case is black so it goes with any style of camera and you can even use it for phones of ipods as long as they fit.
The case will protect the camera from bumps and scratches but it will not protect it very well if it dropped from a great height, it is quite think spongy material though. The case material is waterproof but the zip is not, so do not drop it in any water or you will be sorry. Overall, this is a great case for a camera and the young hip design wins me over. I love this material and I think it looks really smart.
Summary: good find!
