“ Brand: Golla / Type: Case / Recommended Use: For digital camera „
I have a digital camera and wanted a case to keep it in as I didn't have one. I ended up buying the Red Golla Garden Digital Camera Case, which is a padded zip case.
Golla do a range of different designs but out of the ones by Golla and some other brands this one is the one that stuck out most to me.
The case is bright red which has a zip on the top. The design is on the front of the case. I'm not a fan of flowery designs normally, but this one is quite simple. There are four flowers, two are very light pink and the other two are just white outlines.
Inside there is a small pocket at the back which is the perfect size for putting a memory card or spare battery. There is a bit of Velcro to make sure whatever you put in there doesn't slide out. I wasn't expecting this as I didn't see any mention of it on the site when I bought it so it is nice to know there is a small pocket if needed.
On the back of the case is a strap/handle that you can slide your hand into if you wish to carry it that way. There is also a clip at the top of it so you can attach the bag to a belt or something. It is possible to just slide the hook off if you don't want it (you could always put it in the pocket inside the camera case if you think you may want it at some point).
There is also a draw string that comes with it so you can hang the bag around your neck which could come in very useful. The case is very light and as it's meant for small digital cameras it shouldn't be too heavy to hang around your neck.
The material is quite smooth on the outside and is made entirely of polyester. I don't think it is waterproof which is a shame but it's not an expensive case so I wouldn't expect it to be.
It is a good quality case and it is padded to keep the camera safe. The case has been well sewn together with no lose threads or anything. The zip opens and closes smoothly and doesn't catch on anything.
I'm not sure how good the quality of the clip is. To open it you just push the bar in and over time that might loosen or not open/close so well. It does feel quite thick and solid though so it should last a while.
The size is roughly 3cm deep, 7.5cm wide and 11.5cm high. It is meant for small digital cameras and mine (a Fujifilm JV250) fits in perfectly.
I didn't want to spend much on a camera case so was ideally looking for one under £2. I was happy to find a few under £1.50 but this one was the cheapest at just 75p! It was an add-on item at the time I bought it but I was planning on buying other off Amazon anyway so that was fine. I have now noticed the price has gone up to £4.42 on Amazon with free shipping if your order is over £10! This seems rather a jump and there are cheaper cases that are probably as good, although for less than £5 I suppose the price isn't too bad. I personally wouldn't buy it at its current price though just because price was one of the main factors for me.
After buying I did also find it on Tesco Direct for 75p but that appears out of stock now. However, it might be worth checking if you're planning on buying one.
Overall I really like this camera case and it should last a while. For 75p it's a bargain! Recommended.
