“ Brand: Fujifilm / Carrying Case Type: Case „
My other half bought me a brand new sparkly digital bridge camera for christmas, you know the kind that comes with all the bells and whistles on it and a manual that's six pages long which tells you how to put the batteries in and switch it on and that's about it. Don't get me wrong I love it, just wish the manual was more informative. Well I decided that such a flashly camera needed a special bag and as I'm only just getting use to digital cameras, I love good old fashioned film cameras, something old looking would be a great ideal. So I looked through the Argos catalogue and was immediately drawn to the Fujifilm Retro Style Bridge Camera Case in bright red. It stated that it fit most Fuji cameras, mine being a Fuji I thought why not.
The bag is made from a water resistant material, it feels a bit like a textured rubber only thinner, is bright red in colour with white pipeing round the edges with a double opening zipped top with a white handle. The double opening makes it easy to get your camera in and out of the bag when it's needed. The interior is padded to protect your camera and there are two adjustable pads inside which can be moved to fit your camera more snuggly. These can also be removed altogether, or used to make a little extra space in the bag for such things as spare batteries. There's also a couple of small pockets inside which will hold additional memory cards. The bag measures 7 inches at the top tapering down to 5 inches at the bottom by 4.5 inches wide by 7 inches high. These are all exterior measurements but the inside isn't much smaller. The bag has an adjustable shoulder strap in black with an added padded section, which matches the bag, for extra comfort.
Overall I'm pleased with the bag, after all it only cost me £9.99, reduced from £24.99, it's easy to carry and use, however it's just a bit too big for my camera, there is plently of room left when I put my camera in for it to move around. My solution to this was, to buy a meerkat screen cleaner, my camera has a screen, it gets dirty, it needs cleaning, the meerkat now acts as additional padding for my camera and cleans the screen at the same time.
This bag is said to fit most digital bridge cameras and I believe it would, I also think it would fit some small DSRL cameras as well. Maybe they could add a couple more pockets inside for, say batteries, instead of having to put them loose around the lense of the camera as it is now.
So if you want something that's big and bold and will make you stand out in a crowd then this bag is well worth the money, however don't expect to be able to carry a lot of equipment around with your camera you'll need a seperate bag for that.
