“ Brand: JVC / Type: Case / Recommended Use: For camcorder „
When I bought my JVC Everio camcorder I was lucky enough to get an official case with it.
I believe this is a neoprene case. It has a bit of stretch to it but not much. It should fit in a JVC Everio camcorder in though as this is what it was made for. The design is quite simple; it is a black case with a light grey zip. The zip goes most of the way around and there are two zip pulls which both say JVC on them. The pulls are quite thick and have a rubber feeling to them. The writing is embossed which makes the zip pulls easy to grip which is good. The front of the case says Everio in white letters which really stands out against the black.
Sadly there are no extra pockets on this case. Luckily my camcorder has a dual memory card slot so I don't need to worry about storing an extra memory card. If you do have a spare memory card or battery this might not be the best case although there is enough room to slip them down the side.
The top of the case has a round clip on it which can be useful. I tend to leave the wrist strap of my camcorder sticking out at the top (as you can zip it up from each side) and I hook it through the loop of the case so I can just slip the strap on and carry the case that way. It means the camcorder is still protected by the case and if somehow the case ever came unzipped (or I forgot to zip it properly) I wouldn't lose it.
The case is well made. The zips move smoothly and don't catch on anything which is good. It feels quite thick so that's good for protecting the camera. As the material is soft and there's no extra padding I don't think the camcorder would survive being smashed against something really hard but for general use and just placing it in your bag to take out somewhere it does a good job.
As I said before there is a clip on the case which I think is just made of plastic. It feels quite cheap. When pushing the clip down I have found that it the bar moved and wasn't lined up so to close it I had to push it back into place. This is quite disappointing but I don't tend to use the clip and just to put the strap through it's perfectly fine.
The size is roughly 13cm in length, 7cm wide and about 5cm deep.
This is currently being sold on ebay for £6.95 which isn't a bad price for an official case. I haven't seen this case elsewhere so it might be an older design but it's possible you might be able to find it elsewhere.
Overall I really like this case. The design is simple, the main case is good quality and it keeps my camcorder safe which is what I want.
