I bought the Kolay Hard Shockproof Case for my Nikon Coolpix camera and paid a very reasonable £2.99 including postage and packing from Amazon.co.uk. I think this is a very fair price indeed for a hard case for a camera - as I know that soft cases can be bought cheaply from the pound shops these days, I'd never seen a cheap hard case.
I wanted a hard case as opposed to a soft case as I keep the camera in my large and cavernous handbag wherever I go, as I'm a parent and I like to take pictures of everyday life. So my camera is very much always with me. I also wanted a hard case to offer that extra bit of protection when I go on holiday.
My Kolay Hard Shockproof Case is styled in white with a black print, the best way to describe the print is the outline of a cartoon monkey's head (ie, a large circle with two smaller circles either side), but as it's in black, on my white case, it does from a distance look a bit like clouds. You can also buy the case in an electric blue colour or a muted pink colour - I would have liked a neon case, as I like to be able to find my camera quickly in my bag, which is why I went for the white.
The case isn't 100% waterproof but it is fairly protective in the rain and keeps my Coolpix safe. The zip is a sturdy chrome plated double zip with a good sized and easy to grip zipper head, which makes it easy to get the camera out in a hurry.
I find that the Kolay Hard Shockproof Case protects my camera well, and for the money, I really can't complain. It's well made, hardwearing (I've had it well over 18 months now and it still looks as good as new) and it is the ideal size for my camera. You can purchase it for other camera models also.
I do highly recommend the Kolay Hard Shockproof Case as I think it's the most fashionable and well made, not to mention the cheapest, hard case available now and it's never let me down. It's distinctive and fun, and much better than all those boring black soft cases everyone seems to have. My only tiny criticism is that mine did not come with a hanging strap, or any pockets in it to store SD cards. Even so it is still a good case.
Overall I do recommend it, and I'll give the Kolay Hard Shockproof Case 4 stars out of 5. A very good camera case in the budget arena. Buy one! :)
Summary: A great case for the price!
