Crumpler The PP70
Advantages: Easy to use
Disadvantages: Basic protection
I picked up the Crumpler case quite a few years ago when I first bought a digital camera, I have it in black, but it also comes in red, silver and green. It can currently be purchased for around £8 in many stores on-line. The case is made from a super soft neoprene and measures 6cm X 2.5cm X 11cm. It fitted my Canon Power Shot 550 in very snugly. The case is opened and closed on three sides with a durable zip that is easy to open and has not caused me any problems whilst being used.
On the front of the case is the little Crumpler logo, which is basically a stick person with wavy, crumpled hair, that is quite distinctive, but not as in your face as other logos and branding. When you open up the case inside is a mesh pocket that you can keep Sd cards in or others small bits and bobs, in addition the case has a strap that you can detach.
The case is very light weight and has a feel of a wetsuit, it holds my camera well and I can also fit the camera strap into the case. Overall it is not very thick, but it does offer a decent amount of protection, as I am pretty clumsy and have a tendency to drop the camera, and so far it has not been damaged. The case is hard wearing and due to the nature of the fabric it has also remained clean and it looks pretty much new even after a few years or so.
The only downside of the case is that it is very basic, which also means as the case is fairly thin it does not add lots of bulk and can therefore be easily carried in your pocket or bag. Overall I find that although the case is easy to use in terms of putting the camera in, I find that taking it out is a little dangerous, as I said I am pretty clumsy and therefore like to get the camera strap onto my wrist before fully taking the case off in case I drop the camera.
Overall this is a basic camera case that offers a good level of protection, it looks good, wears well, is well priced and because of its compact design it is easy to carry around with you, I would recommended the case to others on this basis.
Summary: Good camera case that is light weight
