I purchased this camera case on Amazon on 4 May 2012 after also purchasing my Panasonic Lumix TZ20 to take professional looking photos for my partner's graduation. After spending around £150 on the camera, I thought I may as well get the proper leather case for it also.
The panasonic case cost £15.23 with free delivery. It is now priced £14.00 on Amazon.

The case is black leather, on the front of the case the 'LUMIX' logo indented into the leather. On the left side, there is a loop detail with a clip. On the back, there is a belt strap which I have never used as on a belt it would be quite bulky. Below the belt strap, the 'Panasonic' label is found. The case has an envelope design style. It opens and closes using a pop clip magnet fastening. On the inside there is only one compartment, so this case is purely just for your camera and nothing else, which means that additional batteries or spare memory cards for a photo packed day will not fit in this case. Inside the case, the material changes to a soft felt kind of material. I assume this is used to avoid the camera getting scratched which is a nice feature, especially for the TZ camera range which is notoriously a hefty price. The stitching on the case is very good quality, there are no threads or anything. It is nearly a year after I bought the item and it has lasted. The case is not worn at all, it has been on holidays, used on every night out, on every possible occasion and there are no signs of use.
The case does what it is made for, it has protected my camera and has not worn badly over the extreme use it receives. However, I hesitate to really endorse this product for a variety of reasons. Really, if you care about the branding and labels, then this product is for you. It is a good quality pouch and fits the description. However, if you don't care about matching the camera brand to your pouch then I would shop around as there are a lot of alternatives that provide more space, protection and perhaps at a more affordable price it just depends what you are looking for.
I give this product 3 stars, mainly for the lack of room for other additional necessities such batteries and memory cards and also for the price.
This is a nice bespoke case for Panasonic cameras. I bought it for my Panasonic Lumix TZ7 Camera, as I wanted something as compact and snug fitting to the camera as possible, to minimise bulk and maximise protection. It's a stiffened tough kind of leather with a magnetic male/female closure. It has a velvet lined inside and movement within the case is limited due to the tailored fit. there's a belt loop so it can be worn on the belt. Though the case is as small as possible, it still sticks out a lot on a belt, so bear this in mind if keeping a smart, svelt look about the holiday resport is a must for you!
The case opens from the top allowing easy quick access to the camera, and drops back in equally as nicely.
I would recommend this case for any of the suitable cameras. It's well made and feels good quality.
