I remember paying around £15 for this Red coloured Fujifilm Z20 Camera case a few years ago, however Amazon states that the retail price is £19.99 and they are currently selling the red colour for £14.99 and the blue colour for only £4.99, which is huge difference purely based on the colour!
To be honest I have seen this priced £3.00-5.99 from most online stores such as ebay, and http://www.wexphotographic.com which are selling the case for only £3.00. It is of course shopping around as there are a range of colours available to buy, such as blue, red, grey, green and black.

The camera case is made from glossy leather material which has a red colour finish and a white inner lining that covers the inside of the case. The leather outer material looks attractive with its diagonal shaped fold over flap and etched stitching that surround the boarders of the flap. The leather case is soft to the touch and therefore feels nice when holding it or carrying around.
Durability & Size
The leather case itself is quite thick and therefore prefect for its purpose, it has a double padded base to ensure it further protects the camera from any damage that may occur if the camera is dropped. I sometimes place this inside my handbag as it is nice a compact in size measuring approx 8 x 5 cm. When placed in my bag the thick durable casing prevents the bag contents from damaging the camera, for example I keep my keys, my phone and mirror etc in my hand bag and find the case is more than thick enough to prevent any damage in case any these hard objects managed to get in contact.
My Fujifilm Z20 camera fits perfectly inside the case, which opens and closes via a metal magnetic fixture that is enclosed into the flap. The magnetic feature keeps the case securely closed, I have never experienced it accidently opening when it is placed in my bag, despite much movement. I also like the magnetic feature better than Velcro or zip fastenings, as Velcro can easily lose its stickiness quite quickly, and metal zip fastening can break easily or can get stuck. The magnetic strip is hidden so it is not visible to the eye, which is great as it doesn't affect the modern and funky design of the case.
Long Lasting Protection
The good thing about it being leather is that is very easy to keep clean, I managed to spill some liquid on it once or twice and a simple wipe with a cloth does the trick and it looks good as new. I have had mine for a good few years and still looks great, the colour hasn't faded and there leather material still looks great, no wear or tear or scratch marks on the case; which illustrates how durable and long lasting it is. The case has also protected my camera very well throughout the years of use, as it hasn't suffered any major scratches or dents and most importantly the camera lens and screen is fully intact.
The case has an attachment so it can be fixed onto your trouser belt if wanted; I however personally just keep in my hand bag or in my side jacket pocket. A useful aspect of this case is that there are small gaps on the sides which allow the charger cable to pass through and charge the camera while not in use.

Overall this is a great camera case for the Fujifilm Z20 camera as it is durable, attractive, reasonably priced and most importantly keeps the camera safe from any knocks of bumps. I would therefore give rate item full marks 5/5 and would highly recommend it.
I had this fujifulm camera case as a Christmas present along with my Fujifulm Finepix Z digital camera.
Mine is a deep purple colour which matches the colour of my camera. It is also my favorite colour.
The camera case has a purple leather outside which is nice and soft to touch whilst the inside is a black material. As it is leather it is easy to clean if it was to get dirty, I have used a wet wipe before.
The camera case has stitches around the outside of the case. These are for decorative purposes and are a nice detail. The flap to close the case has "Finepix" embossed and the letter Z. I think this is because it is aimed at that particular camera. I havent tried putting any other cameras in but I assume they wouldn't fit as well.
The camera fits nice and snug in the case. The case is thick and sturdy and keeps the camera safe inside. My camera is in great condition and has no scratches as I always return it straight to the case.
The case is 10cm wide by 6cm tall. It is a nice size which fits into large pockets and some smaller pockets with a struggle. This is useful as I don't have to carry it around all the time.
The case is kept close by a strong magnet. This is easy to open but I have never found it has opened itself. I have had this case for two or three years and the magnet close has not weakened.
As the camera case has open sides at the top it allows the camera to be charged whilst in the case. This is really useful because it means it is kept safe.
On the back of the case is a loop made from the same purple leather material. It can be put on a belt but I have never done this, I prefer just to carry it. I often hold it by this loop and it has never loosened or broken off.
As I didn't buy the case I am not sure what it costs. I doubt it is that expensive though.
This is a great camera case to keep your camera safe and scratch free. It has stayed in great condition and there are no cracks or scratches visible. I would definitely recommend this case for anyone with a Fujifulm Finepix Z camera.
