I wanted a compact sturdy camera case to carry around my Olympus X-15 camera, but looking around the camera shops I found some extortionate prices. I found this one on Amazon and was delighted that it was only 19p plus postage and packing. It came to about £4, but it's more like £5 now with free delivery, so it's still a great price. It comes in a fantastic range of colours: pink, red, blue, black, silver, orange and green. As my camera is a very girlie Barbie pink (courtesy of my husband who thinks I'm still about 16) I opted for the pink one to match.
The dimensions given on Amazon are: 10cm X 3.2cm X 7cm and it weighs 32g. They're actually the inner dimensions, so it gives you a good idea whether your camera will fit inside. My fits very nicely and doesn't rattle around.
Inside there is a mesh pocket about half the length of the case, which I use to store the rechargable battery when the camera isn't in use, as I find it drains the battery to leave it in the camera. The inside of the case is lined with a soft nylon fabric, and the outside of the case is a pearlised pink with a black zip. There are two black hoops, one on each side of the case, to fasten on the neck strap that comes with it. On the back there's also a karabiner clip for fastening it on your belt. One drawback I found was that the clips on the neck strap are very hard to get through the hoops, so I don't bother using that. However, I like the karabiner, which clips the case quite securely onto my jeans belt loops. Alternatively I sometimes leave the camera wrist strap hanging out of the zip, and just loop it around my wrist, case and all.
I've had this case for over a year and had no problems with it. It's lightweight, so very easy to carry about or pop in a handbag but it's also firm enough to protect my camera from knocks. It's been stuffed in various bags and pockets, carted around the park, the beach, sea life centres, parties and restaurants and it's still in good condition. It's done a great job of keeping my camera safe and protected from sand, rain and grandchildren's ice-creams, so I'm very happy with it. For the price, it's well worth it, although I do think the neck strap should be easier to fasten on. Hence it only gets 4 stars from me.
Being a model I am more accustomed to having a camera pointed at me than I am using one but over the years I have had a few compacts, nothing too flashy but decent ones. Recently I got myself a very useful Samsung compact and it cost me pennies short of £100 so I needed a case to keep it safe.
The Ex-Pro ES15 Pink Hard Clam Digital Camera Case wasn't the first case I bought, in fact I had two previous to this one but neither of the other ones filled me with confidence nor were they very nice to look at so I eventually plunged for this one.
Being a girly girl the pinkness of it was right up my street but it is so much more than just a pretty face, it is a hard case which is way better than any fabric case in my opinion, when I place my camera in this I feel pretty sure it won't come to any harm.
The case isn't huge but it is plenty big enough for most of today's compact cameras and you don't want the camera to have too much room to move about so the snugness of this case was a good thing in my opinion.
Inside the case as well as space for the camera there is a smallish mesh pocket which is big enough to hold spare batteries and a spare memory card or two so if you are a serious snapper then you will be able to carry everything you need for a long days photography right here.
Now for the bit that might surprise many, being a hard case with space for extra batteries and the likes you might think it would be a bit more expensive than my previous fabric cases but in fact the opposite is the truth.
My first fabric case cost me £19.99 and although it seemed a good case I bought it online so had no chance to feel it or see it in person and it turned out to be a right waste of £20, my second was only a tenner but no better than the first, this little beauty cost me less than £5 on Amazon and is way better than the fabric cases and therefore comes highly recommended by me!
My daughter loves taking photos but being very young she is a bit haphazard with how she treats electronics at times. We bought her a cheap digital camera for her birthday, but when it arrived and had no case with it, we realised we'd have to get one and quick, before she was dropping it or getting it scratched when she took it places.
The Ex-Pro Hard Clam Digital Camera Case is a cheap and great product - we bought ours for just under £5 on Amazon with vouchers gained on Dooyoo, so in a way it was free! I think the price for this protective camera product was very good value.
The cases fit different sizes of cameras, so although you have to roughly check that your camera won't be too big for the case, in general, you can assume it will fit most compact digital cameras. We bought ours without doing a full set of measurements, we just guessed, and our standard sized camera fit perfectly.
Being very girly, our daughter chose the pink colour, but there are also black, blue and red versions available, all with the same hard outer casing and a zip running round the outside of the case.
Inside the case, there is a soft and velvet-like material so your camera can't get scratched inside the case. As well as this there is a handly little net pocket which you can keep memory cards in if you like. Our daughter actually keeps a few coins in hers, though I don't think that's the intended use.
My daughter has dropped the case with the camera inside a few times, and the case has completely protected the camera from harm. Aside from a few scratches on the outside, the case is proving to be very durable and easily protects the camera inside. For just under £5 this is a great buy and I can recommend it.
My mate gave me this camera case because she brought it for her camera but it didn't fit inside, she knew I'd recently got a Sony Cyber Shot and that's a pretty small camera so passed it over. The one I've got is silver but looking at the photo Dooyoo have got up I think the pink one is mega cool.
It's a hard camera case and opens in a clam shell effect, it's a zip up case and the zip goes around 3 of the sides with the hinge being on the fourth side. The case opens up quite wide so it's easy to slide your camera in and out, there's no elastics or anything for the camera to go in but that's ok because the case itself is quite small so it holds the camera safe all by itself.
There's a small mesh pocket inside the camera case to hold batteries, spare memory cards and stuff like that. This pocket doesn't actually work all that well and most times by the time I get to wherever I am going the stuff has fallen out because the elastic edging at the top hasn't kept it all in the pocket. That's annoying actually because I've put the camera itself into the case to keep it safe but having batteries flying around inside the case could scratch or damage it anyway!
Because if it being quite a small case it will only hold cameras that are 12cm long, 8cm high and 4cm wide. My Sony Cyber shot fits the case perfect even though this was specifically made to fit a Samsung ES15, you should make sure yours is going to fit before buying the case though because some cameras are quite a big bigger than this even if they are still described as compact.
This case is very protective and is ideal for people like me who take their camera out in a handbag. The plastic shell is hard enough to protect the camera from bumps and drops, obviously it's not going to stand a car reversing over it but then you wouldn't expect it to..... and that's not something I've just thought of, my cousin actually DID reverse over my handbag once and smashed my phone, camera, brand new ipod and swanky Clinique lippy!
There is a strap attacted to the case so that you can carry it round with you even if you're not taking a handbag, it's a long strap so you can wear it round your neck. I did that last week and found the case was also just about big enough for me to put my front door key and some cash in, the case wasn't very comfortable to wear round my neck though because the strap dug into my skin.
There's also quite a big clip attached to it so that you can wear the case attached to your belt or have it hanging off a bag. Mind you once the camera is inside this is quite a heavy case so I wouldn't wear it like that because I'd be scared of it pulling my jeans down!
For less than a fiver on Amazon I reckon this is a brill camera case.
I needed a hard wearing case for my camera as it often ends up getting thrown around at the bottom of my bag. This hard clam case was the answer. The case is strong and creates a hard shield around the camera rather than one that just protects it from scratches.
I have accidently dropped the case a number of times and my camera hasn't been damaged at all. The case zips closed and stays closed until you want the camera. There is no chance of the camera slipping out of the case.
The case comes with a small thin shoulder strap to carry your camera around with. It's great for if you only want to bring your camera out and no other bags, but can be detached when not needed.
One problem with the case is that it's sometimes hard to close the case. Sometimes you really have to force the case shut before you can do the zip. Other than that, this case is a great way of protecting your camera. I always feel reassured that my camera will be safe when it's in this case.
I bought the Ex-Pro ES15 Pink Hard Clam Digital Camera Case Bag a few months ago from an online retailer as I was looking for a cheap but versatile camera case for my digital camera for my girlfriend to use as we are going on holiday soon.
The case cost me £4.97, when it arrived I was happy to see that it fit the product description well. The description is as follows:
Adjustable shoulder strap,
Fits a range of cameras- L 10cm x H 7cm x D x 3cm,
The case has two zips to open it like a clam shell would open! This means that you don't have to struggle to fit the camera into the case as it is easy to just put in and then zip up. There is a small compartment made of material for items such as batteries or memory cards. The inside is made from soft material to cushion the camera.
The shoulder strap clips on to make the case look like a bag, it's not very fashionable but it is handy. There is also a clip so that you can clip the case onto a bag or your belt loop. I imagine boys would do this more than girls but I might be wrong. The case comes in a variety of colours, such as; black, red, silver and green to name a few.
The outside protective material is great and really sturdy. I would imagine that it would protect your camera against being dropped or sat on but you'll have to test that for yourself!
For some cameras I think that this product would be a tight squeeze so check the sizing.
I think that this product is great, it's cheap, good looking and does the job that it is intended to do. A must have for all cameras.
When I bought a new digital camera, I noticed that the one I chose did not come with any kind of protective case included in the box, so I popped onto Amazon to see what they offered in the way of camera cases. As I had bought my digital camera from Amazon, they had a few recommendations on what to buy next when I logged in, and this was actually one of them.
The Ex-Pro hard clam digital camera case bag is exactly what it says it is. A hard case/bag for a digital camera. They are made in different shapes and sizes for different types of cameras. Mine is made specifically for the Samsung ES15, but I have friends with different cameras who bought the same case. Most digital cameras tend to be of the same sort of size these days anyway.
The case comes in many different colors, including Black, Pink, Red and Blue. I bought mine in Pink, as I thought the color looked quite nice on the website and I am happy to say the color is the same on the actual product. Some items I have bought online had been a slighty different color when they arrived. The case has a zip shutting all around the sides and top, so you know that your camera is securely inside of it, and the inside is lined with a soft, felt - like material, so you do not get scratches on your camera.
There is also a small net pocket on the inside of the case so you can store smaller items like memory cards safely and securely. The hard case is actually quite hard, and seems to be more than capable of protecting the camera inside. I bought this case for less than £5 on Amazon, and I think it is a great little item and I recommend it to everyone who has a digital camera.
