Earlier this year I purchased an Samsung camcorder (F54) and I didn't think I needed this carry case initially untill I wanted to take my camcorder abroad. Being such an expensive camcorder I didn' want to risk getting a cheap one online and decided to get a proper more durable one even if it did cost a little more, I was looking for one that would also be very portable, not too heavy or bulky.
I searched around a few places in store at currys/ pc world, but the cases they had weren't really what I was looking for. I needed a case that was durable and definately had to have a shoulder strap so I could wonder around with it exploring. I needed a carry case that would allow me to put the accesories somewhere too as it is always useful to have a spare battery or memory stick.
I did come across quite a few cheaper ones that are universal fit but in my opion these aren't good enpugh as the sizes tended to be a bit awkward especially for the F54 model camcorder and I didn't want it flying around in the case.
Although this case is touching the £20 mark I would say it is definately worth paying the money for it as you can tell ust how well producrd it is. As soon as you take it out the package you know that it is a quality product. The case is perfect size and weight id ideal! There are various compartments to put spare parts away and more! This case even comes with a spare/ exention strap so if you didn't want it as a shoulder bag you can just have a little handle instead. On holiday I went exploring for up to 8 hours straight with this carry case around my shoulder and it didn't cause any trouble at all and didn't ache at all either.
The only thing that I would change about this product is the fact that it doesn't have a zip for the actual compartment that the camcorder is stored, and as I said because I am using this case primarily on holiday I found myself keep checking that the camcorder hasn't been stolen and was still in there!
Overall this official Samsung camera case is perfect for me and I am currently still using it. I have on a few occasions accidently dropped this case when my camcorder was in the case and obviously I panicked at first hoping that nothing had broken, and when I went to check there wasn't a single mark on the camcorder or the case! Maybe a little bit of dust but I dropped in on a concrete floor! Another thing is that fact that this case only comes in the black colour at the moment and may be nice to see a variet of different colours available.
The only reason that I can think of for not buying one is if you would never take your camcorder out of the house.
