If you own a camera which cost you quite a bit of money you will know how important it is to make sure it will stay protected at all times. When a family member purchased me this it saved me alot of effort because it just meant I could simply put my camera in the case and that would make sure that the camera was safe from things such as scratches. When looking at this I noticed how nicely padded it was and other compartments it came with.
Even though this was given as a gift I had checked the price and I have found it for the price of £40-£48 depending on which site you visit. When thinking that this will protect your camera the price works out to be quite worthwhile. Even though you could purchase a camera case for much cheaper than this you have to make sure you buy one which is of a high quality or it is pretty pointless having.
The actual case comes in the colour black with a strip of red around it. You have two seperate pouches, one being for the camera and the other pouch being for any extras such as a memory card. I think by adding a pouch for a memory card it prevents the card going in the same part as the camera which could scratch it. When looking in the case and feel around you will notice that the actual case is very spacious and will be nicely fitted ot your camera. It allows a bit of room for the camera to move but it doesn't offer to much to prevent the camera getting bashed. This case also comes with a strap which you may or may not use, I find it very useful because if you are on a journey you can just simply put it on your shoulder and walk around with it.
Overall after receiving this case I was very happy with how much quality it actually had. Unlike some other cases which I have used in the past I am totally confident that this one will protect my camera whenever I decide to use it. It can fit a few Panasonic cameras so aslong as you try it out before you purchase it you should be fine. I would highly recommend this for people who are wanting a good quality case without worrying whether or not it will protect your camera. Brilliant case.
I bought this Panasonic DMW-CZ18 for my husband for when we go on holiday and to be honest I have been the one to use it the most and carry it around. As i like the style of it and it looks like a good trendy shoulder bag when your carrying it around.
I like the idea of the protection this carry case gives to the camera as they are so expensive to replace if they get broken or dropped.
It cost me £34 from Amazon which I thought was a good price to pay for a sturdy camera case. I looked around before I purchased and this one was the best option for the camera that I own.
The case is stylish and has a front pocket that zips up to store your memory card and lens filters away neatly. The carry case has a good sized shoulder strap that can be adjusted and this is quite comfortable to wear once the camera and assesories are packed away into it, it's not to heavy a bag to lug around and is a nice handy size to sling over your shoulder. it also has an added padded shoulder piece which can be moved to the top of your shoulder for extra comfort when wearing it.
It comes in a nice black colour with a touch of red and the camera fits snuggly inside without room for it to move around and get banged or jolted around when carrying it.
The panasonic lumix fits into it perfectly and it has a lumix label on the front of the bag.
The section at the front where your assesories go has two chunky durable zips as these are the parts that get the most use.
The bag also has two chunky zips that open for your camera to slot nicely into the bag.
The bag is sturdy and well made and for a camera travel bag it is ideal for carrying your camera with the knowledge that it will protect it and keep it safe from knocks and scuffs.
On the whole the bag is well made with good stitching, it's durable and can take the knocks of everyday travel and can be carried around easily whilst on holiday for taking pictures whilst you travel.
I would recommend this to you if your looking for a camera case that will protect your camera whilst in transit, as it's reasonably priced, well made and designed especially for the panasonic lumix camera.
It gets my vote of confidence and trust. I have used it now for a couple of holidays and it has been a durable product.
