      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Great for happy snappers who cant be bothered to keep getting their camera out of the case!

      This product is such a simple yet innovative idea -one of those that make you think, now why didn't I think of that!!

      Put simply, It acts like a camera case, except it attaches to your camera and wraps around it instead! This is super for when you are taking lots of pictures as the camera doesn't have to keep going in and out of the case! (yes a little lazy, but VERY VERY handy!) It also avoids misplacing your case and of course protects your camera at the same time.

      Now it wouldn't be as sturdy as a hard, fully enclosed case as not only is it a softer fabric, it doesn't have any sides to it. This is a slight draw back but as the main parts of the camera are covered eg lens, screen, buttons, battery compartment and charger hole, I still feel confident that my camera is being protected especially from things like dust, fingerprints, scratches and marks. Im sure it would act as a bit of a shock absorber too if you did drop it, but obviously im not suggesting you put my thinking to the test!

      Laid flat, the camera wrap looks nothing more than a rectangular piece of thin foam lining. ( Im unsure of what the fabric is but it is a little bit like professional diving gear!).
      On both ends there is the velcro fastening, and on one end there is a little bracket with a screw that fits into the tripod hole. It is VERY easy to fit onto the camera, you simply screw it in!
      As there is just one screw, the casing does not need to be removed to gain access to the battery, memory card, etc as it can just swivel out of the way.
      The good thing is that the wrap is compatible with any cameras that have the tripod hole at the bottom- this is majority of digital compact cameras.

      Once screwed in you simply wrap it around the camera, fastening the velcro pieces at either end together. Again, the size of the wrap is designed to fit around most cameras, and the velcro is large enough to allow for slightly bigger cameras.

      Now, Bobs your uncle! Your camera is all wrapped up ready to go!

      The wrap comes in many great designs. There are simple block colours, black, pink if you want to keep it plain but if like me you like to jazz things up a bit then you can opt for dalmation print, army print, or patterned.

      I got mine from jessops for £10.
      I feel that it is well worth the money. I never used a case before because the camera seemed to be permanantly in then out then back in and out again!
      This design is so convenient- I can snap away with piece of mind that my camera wont get damaged.

      Recommended for lazy, snap happy people like myself!

        Great idea!

        I previously carried my Pentax Optio S12 camera around in a leather case to prevent the stainless steel casing getting scratched but then always had to find somewhere to tuck the case when taking shots.

        This wrap is the ideal solution, it attachs to your camera via the tripod hole and wraps around the camera providing quilted protection and fastens with a velcro strip. The bar attachment that fits via the tripod hole can be moved to the side by slightly loosening the screw should you need to access the battery/card compartments. When you want to take a photo just unwrap, (the wrap hangs below your camera still attached) take your picture and wrap camera up again.

        The wrap itself measures 21cm x 11.5cm and is made of stretchy soft neoprene fabric which is quilted though not too bulky and although I've got the one pictured here it comes in different designs from plain to pink fluffy ones.

        My camera measures 8.7cm (w) x 5.4 cm (h) x 2.1 cm (d) and this case is an ideal fit. The manufacturer guidelines state suitable for cameras up to 11.4cm x 2.5cm depth.

        The picture here shows a screw fastener to the tripod hole indicating that a coin etc would be needed to undo it. Mine has a clip attached to a smooth topped screw for fastening/unfastening which folds flat when not in use.

    • Product Details

      You've just bought the newest, smallest and shiniest digital camera and now you're terrified of marking or damaging your pristine piece of technology. We've all been there. Everyone likes their gadgets to stay shiny for as long as possible, and to help you achieve that dream Made products have developed the Always On Camera Wrap. The concept couldn't be much simpler, you just screw the wrap into the tripod fitting on the base of all cameras, and then wrap the camera up in the stretchy, protective neoprene. Hey presto, you're protected. The Velcro fastener flips open easily for taking shots, but vitally, the wrap stays attached to the base of the camera so you don't leave it behind. Unwrap, snap and wrap, and now you can stuff your camera in your bag or pocket without worrying that it's going to get up close and personal with your keys, or anything else likely to scratch the screen or damage its pristine beauty. No more scratches, no more cracks and most of all, no more leaving your camera case on the table of the last café you stopped at - perfect.
